No one ever tested it with other systems and see if it does work (to a degree anyway)?

What system(s) would you like to know if it works with?

 

Regarding the common systems/computers with DE-9 joystick ports, such as Atari 2600/8-Bit/7800/ST, Amiga computers, Commodore computers, and Sega Master Systems/Genesis, the joystick Down/Left/Right functions should work...but no joystick Up, and no Button/Trigger.  For the TI-99 and Magnavox Odyssey², it will not work at all.  I'm sure there are other systems/computers with a DE-9 joystick port...but these are just the ones I know of off the top of my head.

Well from your list, and what I mentioned above in my post:

 

Atari 7800

Sega Master System

Sega Mega Drive

Atari 8-Bit

Commodore 64

ColecoVision

Atari ST

...Joystick Down/Left/Right should work.  Joystick Up and the button will not

 

Vectrex

...will not work, as it requires an analog joystick

 

MSX

...not sure, I've never owned one
