A new low-priced "Masterplay Clone" for Sega & A2600 joystick compatibility

...pin 9 was used for Atari 2600 paddle pot.

That is necessary for 5200 to determine that a regular controller is connected instead of a track-ball.

So you are saying 3rd party does not work and will fry the adapter?

Not saying that at all.  Just saying that he'd be covering himself in case someone is using some less-than-ideal 3rd party product for the Genesis that might have become broken (internal wires becoming frayed or something).

 

...

 

And I did state "but I really don't think that's necessary."  I am definitely not worried at all about doing any harm to controller ports or the adapter itself by connecting these 5V pins.

I have good and bad news.  The Rtero-bit bluetooth adapter arrived today in the mail.  Works on my low budget masterplay clone.  But with a wiimote only buttons like swing vines in jungle hunt.  Directions do not work at all though liken in pacman. 

 

As for ikonsgr adapter nothing happens at all.  No lights or anything.  Maybe if he revises it will.  But for now nothing.  But not bad still because it will still work in  my real genesis.

I tested on my genesis 2.  Directions do not work either.  I updated firmware from their website and now directions kinda half work but not 100 percent.  Neither genesis or atari.  Disappointing.  But officially wii mote was bot listed.  Worth a try however.

Yet a regular controller is also powered by pin 12. Paddle on pin 9, gamepad/ joystick on pin 12.

This somewhat awkward looking adapter for SNES or NES controller to Amiga should work well for ikonsgr's Amiga to 5200 adapter, since the 9 pin end is designed for the Amiga. It will also work with the 8bitdo SNES console adapter that works with a bunch of different wireless controllers.

I mentioned that before. But was not sure if it would work. Thanks for confirming.

So I got this and it looks like the bad news is that I cannot power adapters you plug into the NES port. It looks like the +5V power on the NES is not active. The SNES port works. I'm not sure if this is by design or defective.

Hi Everyone!

I just want to inform you that i've revised the design of the board by adding the "mostly wanted" 5v power supply pin12 of Atari5200 DB15 controller connector to pin5 of the DB9 connector in order for 8bitdo Retro Receiver (and possibly others too) to function with SNES controllers.  I kept the layout of board almost identical, so any 3d case designed for previous adapter, will fit for the new one too:

I'll let you know when i will receive the new batch of pcbs.

Hi, does your adapter that you had sold that uses the 2600 joystick also work with the 2600 paddles on the 5200?

 

thanks
