Happy new year!!!

I had some spare time during my christmas vacation. I built a 2.0 version of the software. It now supports USB reflashing so you can reprogram it with a new software as you wish. It could be to support a new version or different hardware. You can build your own if you want!

For example, I built a version that support the Amiga Mouse and is detected by Windows like a standard mouse. Possibilities are now wider opened, keeping the same hardware.

I'm working on a firmware that will support CD32 controllers (6 buttons). If there is beta testers or developpers out there, I'd be happy to assist.

Ciao! Nitz

Hi Nitz76,
I have two CD32 controllers (6 buttons) and I also own a copy of Cloanto Amiga Forever. If this is enough I would be happy to test your adapter.
Let me know something, thanks.
Bye, Liviux76

Great news!

With new firmware 2.0, the adapter is correctly recognized under Amgia NG and Amiga OS4.1. You can now use your old Amiga Joysticks on your new Amiga through USB.

New orders will be fullfilled with firmware 2.0 installed as standard.

Cheers!

Nitz :thumbsup:

Yup, it works with your Zipstick.

I got myself a collection of Wico joysticks that perfectly works with it. Too fun to play Another World and Flashback with the original stuff...

Here is the PlipBox spinoff:

It will be repackaged but it is functional.

The RGB converter is on the bench. The only thing I have handy right now is the schematic:

http://www.retronicdesign.com/projects/rgb_ypbpr_schem.jpg

It supports 15KHz scanning in both interlaced and non-interlaced mode. It can also be used to install LCD screens on old arcade machines.

Humm...:unsure: Never tried it but since it's an HID compatible device, I would assume yes.

Yup, postal service is impressive theses days. :thumbsup:

For most Europe I expect less than 7 days because it's a small air package. Australia is 14-15 days. Not bad...

Hi, I'm interested in one of those adapters for using my good and solid joystick to my AmigaOS 4.1 system. Should I wait here for more news, or I have to pre-order one now?

Hello Phantom,
It's your choice, either you pre order now and get a 5$ rebate or wait. Next production should be out in a week or so.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Yes, you can use it under MorphOS, see my website at www.retronicdesign.com for more info.

You can use the CD32 firmware for both joypad and joystick. Compatibility mode is part of the original CD32 joystick port design.

Hi there,
I'm just doing a little poll here.

I've been ask by a growing number of members that if I could build an opposite device; USB Joystick to DB9 compatible adapter.

That would enable current gaming joysticks/pads to work with original hardware like ATARI, C64, AMIGA machines.

Just write in this tread if you would be :thumbsup:in or out:thumbsdown: for a product like this.

Thanks!! :cool:

Greetings,
I started a prototype. I'm having weird issues generating a valid USB signal recognized by my Saitek pads.
Good thing I have this 100MHz oscilloscope with 32 logic channels!
I'll post my schematic soon so experts out there can appreciate! http://atariage.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/atariage/icon_smile.gif

Hey Ajack!
Yup, it's working. PCB is drawn and prototype works A1. Unfortunately, the retail price would be around 200$can. I'm trying to find cost effective manufacturer. Since you are in Malaysia, do you have any contacts? ;)

Thanks!
