Atari to USB

Post by Topkennedy » Fri Jun 08, 2018 1:51 pm

Anybody have any experience with the joystick to usb converters and any recommendations? I have done some research and it seems there are limited options. I saw where I could even build some, but the links that it sent you to did not work.

Thanks,

Tony

might look into the Atari VCS indiegogo they are selling a new joystick type controller that might work and i think its only like 30 bucks.
In god we trust, all others must pay cash.

Thanks, I was looking at this also, but it is not available until July 2019 at the earliest.

How's the build quality feel to you? Alot of reviews on Amazon saying it breaks easy.

If you have some original sticks lying around or plan to purchase some, this works wonderfully! http://www.2600-daptor.com/

I posted that awhile ago, and I could not remember the website address to post it again. Thanks for mentioning. While I have not personally tried them it seems like going this way might work out better then the generic ones sold on Amazon.
If you are having a software problem be it front end, Windows, or want to try RetroArch and LauchBox but need help feel free to contact me. Post on the forum, PM here, or on Discord. I will be more then happy to do my best to get you sorted.
