INTV 1 to DB9 controller adapter

Recommended Posts

Does anyone offer an adapter that attaches to the INTV 1 controller and allow it to connect to the DB9 on the ECS or INTV 2?

I don't think they do. I believe it is because it is fairly easy to do by oneself with a little patience, a DB9 breakout connector and either nine wires, heat shrink tube and the flat 9-pin header or a sacrificed cord from the INTV1 controller. I looked all over for the reverse connector for a super pro to take the DB9 plugs, but ended up having to make one myself. It took a couple tries to get the pins to stay it the connector. No soldering was needed.

What I really want is to be able to use the brown controllers with my ECS for 4 player.   I just don't know the pinout of the controller and the ECS port

 

I would like to have the two extra controllers working when I put my Tandyvision 1 on display next month.

You can get the DE-9 adapter here; look for intv1 dongle.  Although I don't know for sure if it physically fits an ecs connector. http://www.2600-daptor.com 

 

The pinouts are documented here.  http://arcarc.xmission.com/Web Archives/Deathskull (May-2006)/games/tech/intvcont.html

 

Third option is to try asking nurmix to make them for you.

I recently moved house, and don’t have everything unpacked / set up as far as my soldering gear and cable-making supplies, but I could help you out in the not too disntant fiture - once I catch up on the rather large backlog of Flashback controller adapter orders I have yet to fill.

 

Send me a PM, rietveld if you want me to make a couple for you.

If you need it in a hurry, could be the 2600dapter INTV dongle (depending on delivery time) . I looked into headers like this:

but they all come from Hong Kong or China, so not much help for end of the month.

 

Sometimes, a cable like this can help with poor connector penetration
