RevEng Posted February 20, 2010 Share Posted February 20, 2010 Continuing my work from the defender 2-button hack thread, I've hacked a few more games for 2 button support with the Genesis controller. (buttons B and C) Many thanks to all of you who made game suggestions so far! If anybody else has any suggestions for games that would make good use of the second fire button, feel free to let us know. Converted games...

Where do I get a controller that works with these hacks? You can follow nems' instructions to build a second button into a regular Atari joystick, get a used genesis controller, or you can pick a 3rd party new genesis-compatible controller from Deal Extreme for less than $5 shipped. (review here.) Do these hacks work with 7800 2-button controllers? No, unfortunately the 2600 isn't wired for 7800 2-button support. Why does the Harmony menu not work with my Genesis controller plugged in? It thinks you have paddles plugged in - to override this, make sure you're using the latest Harmony firmware, and hold down the genesis "B" button while you turn the Atari on. You can also clip the wire from pin 5 inside the controller, and you won't have to hold down the button for Harmony. (pin 5 info courtesy nems) How is the sega controller read by the 2600? Everything is the same as a regular 2600 joystick, except for button C which is read with INPT1, just as you'd read the regular INPT4 button. See the assembly example or the batari Basic example How do I setup Genesis controller emulation in Stella? See this section at RT's site. 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
