Welcome to the home of the

Play classic console games on computer emulators with their original controllers.  These adapters are a USB interface that works with PC, Mac, Raspberry Pi, or game console that supports USB HID (Human Interface Device).  No driver needed as the adapter is automatically recognized as a USB joystick/mouse.

2600 paddle support - both paddles work, and calibrated to give the same response and feel in Stella as on the real console.

For paddles and other analog controls on RetroPie and other Linux based systems, you may need to install the evdev-joystick found on the Help Page

** MiSTer **

Due to limitations in MiSTer's controller configuration, not all cores support the 2nd paddle, and the paddle scaling (response/sensitivity) may be off and not adjustable.

Fortunately, the 7800/2600 core has implemented a work-around to support both paddles.

The 2600 PDL has a paddle scaling setting for using 2600 paddles in the MiSTer 7800/2600 core.

However, I personally would use a SNAC when possible.  As MiSTer is a hardware based emulator, using directly connected controllers makes the most sense.  I would only use a USB adapter when there was no other option to use a particular controller. 

 *** 02/17/23 - Paddle jitter with the 2600-D9 adapter *** 

When used with MiSTer and PC's that are not grounded

Have learned some people have encountered bad paddle jitter when using the 2600-D9 with MiSTer.  This jitter goes away when the metal on the adapter controller connector is touched, indicating an electrical grounding problem.  The power supply that comes with the MiSTer DE10-Nano Kit is 2-pronged and ungrounded.  Have also learned this jitter can occur on a regular PC that is again not grounded (plugged into a 2-prong ungrounded outlet, or a 3-prong outlet but the ground is not actually connected).

Have not been able to find a way to change the 2600-D9 to avoid this, but haven't seen this problem with the 2600-II (it reads the paddles differently than the 2600-D9).  So have made a new 2600-PDL adapter based on the 2600-II.  Designed to complement the 2600-D9 by providing support for paddles affected by the D9 jitter problem.  It has several paddle scaling selections, including one for MiSTer 7800/2600 core, and also works with Hyperkin Ranger which the 2600-D9 doesn't support.

2600-D9 controllers affected by this problem, and other adapter(s) to use instead:

The Sega Paddle Control HPD-200 is not affected by this jitter problem, use the 2600-D9 for it.

??? - Some people have encountered a problem with paddle jitter w/MiSTer and ungrounded PC's.  See the "Paddle jitter with the 2600-D9 adapter" above.

*1 Mouse buttons 2 & 3 not supported on 2600 II

*2 Sega MS Sports Pad (see *4 below) & HPD-200 on Vision are alternate firmwares

*3 Commodore paddles operate on the Original 2600 and 2600 II but with a limited range of motion, may not be suitable for emulators that don't have a setting for calibrating the paddles

*4 Sega MS Sport Pad - 5/24/22 I have learned there are at least two different versions of the Sports Pad, and my adapters do NOT work with the later version.  Sports Pad I have here that works has serial # starting C71.  A Sports Pad that does not work has serial # starting E61. 

*5 Has been reported that mice are not working on MIST w/ the 2600 D9.  Guessing that trak-balls are also not working on MIST w/ D9 as they also present as a mouse device.
