Hey LoadWB!
 I built a beta version for TI/99/4/4a. You may try it here:

Oh, that is just awesome.  I though I'd have one picked up already.  I'll put my order tonight or first thing in the morning.  Thanks, mate!!

Hey Guys! This is it.

I just received the first batch of USB Joystick adapters, PCB version 3.0.
This new version is supporting virtually any DB9 joystick ever made!
Just use the flash utility to reprogram as desired.

Here is the compatibility list:

•Atari 2600 Joystick
•Atari 7800 Joystick (2 buttons)
•Atari analog Paddle (2 controllers)
•Atari video touch pad Keyboard
•Amstrad Joystick
•Amiga Joystick (up to 3 buttons)
•Amiga Mouse (up to 3 buttons)
•Commodore 64 Joystick
•Commodore CD32 Joypad (7 buttons)
•Coleco Vision Controller
•Intellivision Touch pad (16 buttons)
•MSX Joystick
•Sega Genesis Joypad (3 and 6 buttons)
•Sega Master System Joypad (2 buttons)
•3DO Joypad

This new hardware version was designed with compatibility in mind. Every pin is reconfigurable so new firmware can be built to support much more devices.
Design will stay open source so anybody out there can contribute to this quest for retro gaming pleasure!

You can order them directly on the web site at www.retronicdesign.com or by sending me a PM request here.




I was just going through some old floppies, decided to fire up Cannon Fodder emulated on my Mac & thought: I'd like to play this with the original Amiga Tank mouse!

Looks like I can grab one of those on eBay & your device will fill the void in between :)

Being the most compatible joystick adapter on the market, and yet still expanding!

Actual compatibility list is as follow:

Atari 2600 Joystick
Atari 7800 Joystick (2 buttons)
Atari analog Paddle (2 players)
Atari driving controller
Atari video touch pad Keyboard
Amstrad Joystick (3 buttons)
Amiga Joystick
Amiga Mouse / Trackball (2 and 3 buttons)
Atari ST Mouse / Trackball (2 buttons)
Commodore 64 Joystick
Commodore CD32 Joypad (7 buttons)
Intellivision Touch pad (16 direction disc and 15 buttons)
Intellivision Flashback Touch pad (16 direction disc and 15 buttons)
ColecoVision Touch pad and Super Action Controller (16 buttons + spinner)
Coleco Gemini Joystick & Paddle (Hybrid controller, also compatible with Sears console)
MSX Joystick (2 buttons)
Sega Genesis Joypad (3 and 6 buttons)

RedOctane Dance pads (6 buttons DB9 version)

So if it exists, it support it!

If you are user of Cloanto Amiga Forever emulator suite (or C64 forever), the adapter is recognized and used right-a-way. As it should be on a real Amiga!

You can even convert your adapter to use your tank mouse as your PC mouse, making the experience even more like the real thing!

Have fun!

New flash programming software: Mr.Switcher

For those who bought the new black version of the USB joystick adapter (Vador), I've made a new programming software that permits to change the current controller without unplugging it.  It's called Mr.Switcher and can be downloaded from our download section at https://www.retronicdesign.com/en/download
