Re: Simple Atari-Style Joystick to Creativision adaptor

I'm using the Seeed Stuido Gerber viewer to have a look and I can see a couple of issues straight up. The DB9 is missing 2 different connections and you have pins 6 and 8 connected, whereas they need to go to different pins. Also the button is shorted, but that seems to be an issue in the original ...

Re: G'day from Canberra

Thanks all.
@scouter3D - I saw your design for the controller adaptor. Given I have a (mostly) working KB, I might try and design something for that. (But Ill post in the other thread :) )
