ATARI to USB Joystick Adapter

Recommended Posts

I sat down tonight to create a ATARI to USB Joystick adapter to  be used with emulation on the PC.

 

I used a Arduino Pro Micro since it has USB support.  Custom coded the arduino code and I have tested it on the PC and in MAME emulation with my GEMSTIK.  Works great!

 

The unit will detect as a Leonardo Gamepad and has 2 joysticks within the configuration.  X,Y Axis and can use up to 2 buttons per joystick.

I wonder if this would work with something like the c64 mini. do you have instructions and code posted someplace? Or selling per chance?

i'm going to sell them.  I need to order some boards, but i need to decide what enclosure I am going to design the board for.

 

probably be 2 different versions.

I think I have the board designed, now I need to order a few to test.  I came up with 2 different designs.  The first fits in the standard hammond 1591XXL enclosure (2 inch x 2.25 inch), the other is a more minimal design with no mounting holes and a smaller footprint for cost savings (2 inch x 1.5 inch).  Thoughts on which?

I got the first batch in and put one together.  works perfectly.

 

If anyone is going to TI-99/4ATX and wants to purchase one let me know ahead of time and we can do a paypal and i'll bring it with me to save on shipping.

 

It fits perfectly in a hammond 1591XXL case.
