How to output data from the controller port

Recommended Posts

How can you send data out of the controller port, specifically the 2nd controller port. If I remember correctly Androman on the Moon would send commands to the Androman robot via the controller port which is why the game crashes everytime you lose a life. This means it's definitely possible, the question is how to go about it.

AFAIK, the paddle pins can be used as output ports.

 

 

Nope, the paddle pins are analog. However, the eight digital pins for joystick 1 + 2 that are controlled by the RIOT can be used as GPIO pins. Iirc there is a bitbanging RS232 implementation floating around on the forums.

I found Teleterm 2600 on the [stella] list, is that the one you're thinking of?
