Controller pin diagram

pinout: and I believe the driving controller (module 2) also uses 7 and 9.

However, the link below for a FFM DB9 splitter, an atari extension cord, your atari controller and your colecovision controller is more of a sure bet than a champ controller. This is all the 2-button version of the Champ controller really is. Although, neither will let you use both fire button at exactly the same time, for those you are back to a CV controller of some sort.

This is much cheaper than a Champ keypad.

 

Although, while using the y-splitter, both buttons on the CV controller will still function normally and will act at the exact same time, so I have a theory that if one soldered the correct two points for each button on the CV controller to the corresponding points on the 7800 controller, you could use the joystick and buttons on the 7800 controller just as you would a CV controller and use the CV controller for the keypad. Otherwise, you could make a whole new controller that matches the CV controller pcb, etc., exactly, which is I believe what grips and Edladdin did/are doing.

 

Edit: Sorry, forgot to quote.

Does anyone have a pin diagram for standard CV controllers? I have given up trying to find a Champ keypad for sale, so I want to try to make one with a stock controller and a d-sub connector.

By the way, if you are looking to just use a 2600 controller (one fire button) and want the CV controller key pad, the y-splitter setup above will work without a hitch. Also, you do need the Atari/CV extension cord with molded ends because the PC DB9 male end is too wide to fit in the consoles controller port because of the male end's bolt supports, but the splitter's male end will fit into the extension cord, which then goes into the console. There are like literally a handful of molded spiltter cables around, but they run $50-100, if you can find one.

I just remembered these threads. The first explains how someone used diodes to make both buttons work at the same time on a champ adapter. May somehow work with the splitter as well.

Otherwise, in this thread there is a guy that has three Champ adapters he may be willing to sell:
