Atari 2600 joysticks used on Odyssey2


Recommended Posts

I finally got the OEM Atari 2600 RF cable and plugged it into the Odyssey 2.

Very nice display and the joysticks are AWESOME! I didn't know the Odyssey 2 had such high quality joysticks! They remind me of the joysticks the Apple IIe used in the early '80's.


Anyway, after playing a few games of UFO!, K.C. Munchkin, and Freedom Fighter, I lost track of time (and my mind) and shut the system off and packed it up without trying out an Atari joystick! :?


I'll try out the joystick during the week and see what happens.


Overall, i'm impressed with the Odyssey 2 system. Small library but its got a group of great games like all other systems.


...and you guys are awesome as always too! ;)

Hey does anyone know what the wiring order is inside the Atari Joystick to work on the Odyssey?


I got the type of Odyssey2 where they have the 9 pin connectors in the back.


Thanks in advance!
