Irgendwer Posted July 23, 2021 Share Posted July 23, 2021 (edited) While @mulcmu presented his idea of an Wii - mote adapter, this could prevent double work or going a more costly route, I guess it's time to show what I developed and maybe put into this years Abbuc hardware contest. SNACK supports two operational modes: Classic and enhanced. The classic mode is fully compatible with the standard joystick and supports also the additional buttons from the https://github.com/ascrnet/Joy2Bplus project and the game-patches there. A third button is mapped to auto-fire. When switching to the enhanced mode (with SELECT + START + R (shoulder button) ), all buttons are mapped to a single controller port, in a quite clever but also easy to use way: VID_20210723_163234.mp4 Things get even more interesting when plugging an "8bitdo Retro Receiver SNES" https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01K1T9CZS/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_J2E10CQ41GV0R44RQDA2 into the port of the adapter: ...this way, a lot of Bluetooth controllers will work out-of-the box with my hardware development: VID_20210723_164634.mp4 (sorry for the jittery footage, it's not that easy to film and play single handed...) Costs for the adapter will be quite low, as the controller in use is below € 1,-. As the prototype is hand wired, I'm currently designing a PCB (actually two different designs) and write the documentation. Have fun!
