SNES controller to parallel port adapter

The SNES controller to parallel port adapter is a classic solution for using an SNES controller on a PC.

Description

The SNES controller to parallel port adapter is a classic solution for using an SNES controller on a PC. Best suited for older machines without an USB port running DOS or Win9x.

Works with the following software:
  • Windows XP with PSXPad. (Instructions)
  • Windows 2K with PSXPad. (Instructions)
  • Windows 95/98 with Direct Pad Pro. (Instructions)
  • Linux 'gamecon' driver. (This one also supports the SNES mouse)
  • Zsnes DOS version native support.
  • Possibly SNESKey.
Pitfalls (Read before buying!)
There are a few risks of incompatiblity (see below). We can therefore not allow exchanges or refunds should one of the hereafter mentionned situations occur:
  • Some parallel ports are not able to provide enough power to the controller. This happens mostly on laptops and PCs with non-standard parallel ports working at 3.3 volts instead of 5 volts!
  • Special SNES controllers with potentially higher power requirements may not work.
  • Some controllers simply won't work. But this is very rare.
  • Windows Vista support status is unknown.
  • Win64 support is unknown.
This adapter is built according to the instructions on this website.
