This circuit allows you to convert one of the following game controllers to USB:
- SNES controller or mouse
- NES controller
- Genesis 3 and 6 button controller or Multi-tap (Use 4 controllers at the same time!)
- Atari style joystick/controller. Implemented by many 8bit systems
such as: Atari, Commodore, Sega Master System... Typically, those joysticks
have a DB9 connector.
- TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine controller
The software implements a standard USB HID (Human input device)
device so it is directly supported by most operating systems without
installing special drivers. Perfect for playing old games with emulators.
Works great with other games too!
The circuit is small enough to fit inside an heat shrink tubing
or pvc pipe. It's even possible to fit the circuit directly inside
an original controller.
