This is a 2 item combo:
- (1) Atari 5200 DB9 to DB15 Module with keypad
- (1) Atari 5200 Themed Decal Control Pad
- Included is a Atari 5200 themed (decal) control pad which is intended to work with the RetoGameBoyz Atari 5200 DB9 to DB15 Keypad Module
- Actual themed controller works with Atari 2600 (1 button games - button I) and Sega Master System 2 button games - button I and button II)
This awesome keypad module designed by RetroGameBoyz uses the DB15 to DB9 adapter (see pic of PCB) created by retrogaming enthusiast John Konstantopoylos. John is well known for making this and many other adapters for various game systems and computers. John and I are teaming up to re-sell and promote each other's products.
This module allows you to use standard retro video game joysticks and controllers that have standard DB9 joystick ports, including RetroGameBoyz Atari 5200 and Sega Master system control pads with the Atari 5200 along with full keypad functionality.
NOTE: It will enable you to start, pause, reset and select various menu functions as well as play MOST Atari 5200 2 button games. Does not work with ANALOG games. I did notice there are some games that will exhibit character wandering - BUT this is game specific and only seems to occur with certain models of Sega Genesis control pads - but works great with the included control pad.
- 8ft DB15 Cable - can be cut to size - just specify in notes on checkout
- 9 pin male input for Atari compatible joysticks
- Supports 2 fire buttons!
