My customers asked me to design this game pad to support a number of games hosted by the Joy2B+ project found here https://github.com/ascrnet - managed by a very smart and creative gentlemen named Abel. I originally built my control pad through trial and error but Abel has listed a number of ways to modify existing control pads or you can even build your own. You can learn more about the project here https://github.com/ascrnet/Joy2Bplus . Special thanks to Abel to making me aware of this awesome repository.
NOTE: This game pad is GAME Dependent - meaning the game must be able to support 2 button games. (as well as 3 button games that support the 3 button configuration - see video) It has been tested on XEGS game ROMS as well as an Atari 2600 using an Uno Cart with specific game hacks designed to work with 2 buttons. (Princess Rescue, H.E.R.O, Kung Fu Master, Defender 2 (AKA Stargate hack) etc.

This is a control pad designed to work with both 1 button OEM Atari 2600 and 8 bit computer games as well as 2 button homebrew and game hacks (ROMS) that have been designed to work with Sega Genesis controllers or the Joy2B+ (Joy2bplus) specification and 3 buttons games where supported, For example - Moon Patrol on the Atari XE GS 2 button hack ROM - can be configured to jump, fire front and top shot separately depending on controller mode selected.
