You ain't just whistling Dixie!  Pretty and look well-built, for sure.

Nice!

I thought about rolling my own using parts off amazon.

Combined with a Teensy it could be work as both a TI and USB joystick.

However, I recently found out that I was simply too lazy at this time.... (confirmed by my wife!)

I just found the best controller for the TI-99. It’s kinda pricey but it works for the 2600, 7800, Atari 8 Bit, and with an adapter, the TI-99.

 

The controller:

It looks nice, but it's backwards (my opinion).  If the joystick cannot be in my right hand, there is no use in my playing because my left hand is not up to the task.

Button on the left, joystick on the right, then I least have half a chance...

Please don't make it too hard, arthritis limits and inhibits game play.
