BYTEBOOSTERS Atari joystick converter for Apple II not working


Recommended Posts

So I just got one of these: https://console5.com/store/byteboosters-sega-atari-snes-joystick-adapter-to-apple-ii-e-c-c-iigs.html


I've tested with two different Atari Joysticks with Mario Bros on Apple II+ and the jump button is always pressed (DPad / Joystick works fine).

Using an old Apple II joystick has no issues.


Anyone else have this issue or know how to get these converters working with Atari controllers correctly?

Unless this thing taps the keyboard port and emulates pressing the arrow keys (which it does not appear to do), you really need an analog joystick for an Apple II anyway.

Umm yes what?  Try plating Mario Bros and many other games.

Thats like asking do you need a Joystick for Atari 5200... Apple II has many of those games etc

Just offering my advice.  The system isn't designed for a digital joystick.  But you do you, buddy.

O sorry I totally read your message wrong. My bad.

Ya I'll probably look into making a analog converter cable at some point to get Atari controllers working as there are lots of options there.
