Q: What are the differences between version 1 and 2?
A: Version 1 did not support the Famicom light gun and had a grey Famicom connector instead of black.

Q: How can I tell which version I have?
A: If the famicom connector is grey, it is version 1. Otherwise you have a V2.

Q: Some Famicom controllers have a switch to select between player 1 and 2. Is this supported with this adapter?
A: No, as this would require a different adapter design with cables connecting to the two controller ports on the NES, like the NES Advantage does. Maybe we will make such an adapter in the future.. Let us know if you are interested.
