Hello

 

I have the 2600 Flashback 9 and I broke my Player 1 joystick.

 

I have 2 Player 2 joysticks and my question is this.  Is there a way to control the 2600 without the use of a Player 1 joystick with 4 buttons along side?

 

The only way I can get to my saved games in some cases is to turn off the unit and scroll back to that game.  Unlike before it was just a matter of pushing the Menu button on Joystick 1

 

Thank you

How is it broken?

 

You can exchange physical parts between the joysticks, and even change the P1 and P2 around by swapping around resistors — if you open both joysticks and compare them you’ll see the differences.

 

So if you still have the broken joystick it shouldn’t be too hard to make a new P1.

 

Edit:

 

Or you could make a hardwired joystick into a ‘P1’ type controller by adding the buttons:
