Question : Competition pro USB joystick to a 5200

Recommended Posts

 

Hi friends,

Sorry in advance for my silly question :

Is there an adapter to connect a USB joystick to an Atari 5200 ?

I searched the web and found none ...

I have a USB joystick which I constructed (Tron multicontroller) and I got it working on the 5200 through a series of adapters and additional power supply.  Here's the video about that:  

 

 

In the video I featured 4 separate diagrams that can be used if you want to connect USB controllers to Atari consoles.  Diagram #3 in the video is probably the one you're after.  Here's a special link which shows my USB joystick to 5200 setup:

Hope that helps.

Thank you ! Very interesting. I already have watched many of the Wired Up retro videos but not this one.  But i minds well buy a 5200 Competition pro or go with  an Atari 2600 or Amiga joystick with just Ikonsgr74 adapter !
