Weird Question: Do Apple ii Paddle Controllers work on an Atari VCS?

Recommended Posts

They have a similar 9 pin connector as far as I can tell...

 

Does anyone have any experience trying this out?

Apple controllers (aside from the earlier 16-pin ones that connect directly to the motherboard) have DB-9 male connectors, which is what Atari controller jacks are. You can't even plug them in.

Like what alex and bass said, both pinout and gender is incorrect, so it won't work. I've checked schematics, and Apple II paddles use 150k ohm pots while Atari paddles use 1 megaohm pots. So yeah, even if you built a simple adapter, it wouldn't work correctly.
