Hello from Nitz!

Post by nitz76 » October 19th, 2014, 6:38 pm

Hello there!

First, let me introduce myself. I'm a 38 years old engineer from Canada. I'm specialized in networking and electronic design.

I've got my first machine at 8 years old. I grew up but still, the passion is alive.

Doing my part for the retro community, I've decided to design and build a USB joystick adapter for all kind of DB9 joysticks.

There are lot of NES/SNES/PLAYSTATION USB adapters out there but nearly nothing has been done for DB9 style like Atari or Commodore. As a Commodore fan, I've decided to change that.

The actual 3.0 version supports many DB9 controllers and is compatible with all emulators under Windows, including MAME.
I'm currently working on an extension to this adapter to connect 20 configurable inputs. This would be ideal for custom cabinet design.

Cheers! :hooray:

Hello mate... That's a nice bit of kit, seeing as the PC has become the computer equivalent of the Borg, we should have adapters for every input by now... :thumbsup:
Ooer... No pictures...
