It worked, but the range of motion and feel was all wrong. If I recall correctly, turning the paddle all the way moved paddles across the screen, as opposed to a very small range of motion needed on real hardware. Hi, I have the same setup as yours. A MiSTer using the 2600-dapter-D9 running Kitrinx's 7800 core for Kaboom!. I also happen to have a real Sixer 2600 with the Kaboom! cartridge. I have an Atari adapter for SNAC on it's way but I don't have the analog board w/ the 3.5mm jack to work w/ the paddles anyway. My suspicion of what you're experiencing is related more to the 2600-dapter-D9's sampling and communication of that analog range than the core itself. You're right in that with Kaboom! (haven't tested other games), the rotational distance/travel of the paddles is lower to cover the same on-screen movement of the buckets on the 2600 than with the core+2600dapterd9 combo. However, I don't find the difference on rotation-distance between the two too much. If anything I actually prefer the rotation-distance using the 2600dapterD9 than on real hardware since it gives you finer control of where your buckets are.
