    Default If you ever thought you might like to use NES joysticks and gamepads on your Atari 2600 and/or 7800, this might interest you...

    I've just uploaded a video to Youtube which describes the method used to allow NES controllers of all types to be utilized on Atari systems:

    I want to credit AtariAge member, 0078265317, who was the smart guy who discovered it.

    Also presented in the video is the PC gameport controller adapter for the Atari 5200 which has allowed me to play numerous games with a Saturn-like controller as well as a Gravis Gamepad Pro which is identical to the original Playstation 1 controller... and something no one else knew before about getting Atari 2600, 7800, and Master System controllers working on the A5200 for a reasonable price.

    Enjoy!

    very cool.

    even more reason I think for us here to re arrange the board lineup and bring tech and resto up from the bottom because more and more things like this are going to start to come about

    Here's my latest video on an experiment that I did to try to get the Atari Flashback mini-7800 joystick working on the Atari 7800 console with adapters and wireless capability: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xDf0AvtWKHc
