For those of you who didn't make it to the recent Cocofest or haven't heard of this item, it is worth checking out. It is a Sega Genesis to Tandy Coco joystick adapter. Now you can use a Genesis pad or any regular 9 pin Atari style joystick on a coco. If you use a Genesis pad it does support for two buttons so you can play games like Rampage that use two buttons. This is a great alternative to the stock coco sticks. I just ordered one and recommend other coco gamers do the same.

My adapter came in today and I must say that I'm impressed. I'm new to the Color Computer world and didn't have any joysticks for it (because I'm picky). I did have several brand new old stock SEGA Genesis controllers though.

I have one of these and they're great.

 

There were about three different companies (including Wico) back in the day that made these:

I'm hoping for two things:

1) something just like what's shown in the link above (super simple since one fire button is enough for 99(% of CoCo 1 and 2 games).

 

2) And something a bit fancier (same thing but both a 9-pin D-shell and a DIN on each port; 4 ports total). That way there'd be no more plugging and unplugging of the adapter when you want to switch from analog to digital controls.
