This circuit makes it possible to use Sega Saturn
peripherals (controllers, mouse)
on a PC through an USB port. One can either build an adapter (Using the connector
from a Saturn extension) or convert a controller by wiring it directly to the circuit.
- The Basic controllers (ABCXYZ, L/R and Start buttons). Tested with:
Sega HSS-0101, Sega MK-80116, Super Pad 8 (P-400), Horipad SS (HSS-11)
- The analogic controller. Tested with: Sega MK-80117.
- The mouse (aka "Shuttlemouse"). Tested with Sega HSS-0102.
- Should also work with the twinsticks.
- Multitap not supported.
Thanks to USB HID compliance, the adapter works immediately on most modern operating systems
without installing special drivers. Tested under Linux
, Windows 7/8 64-bit
, MacOS X
and Sony Playstation 3
