KTRL CD32+ (new version of the KTRL CD32 gamepad)
 
http://daemonbite.com/ktrl/images/kt...black-gray.jpg

I have just finished designing and implementing a new version of my KTRL CD32 gamepad. It has all the features of the original KTRL CD32 plus:
  • Amiga/gamepad output to output conflict fixed. Due to the implementation of the original CD32 gamepad (and my previous KTRL CD32 gamepad), pin 6 (fire1) will have a output to output conflict every time the buttons are read by the Amiga. The Amiga sets this pin as an output and pulls it LOW while the gamepad will output a HIGH signal. This conflict is very short (a few microseconds), but causes ringing or erroneus signals and can result in unreliable gamepad functionality. The KTRL CD32+ will not cause this conflict and might be more reliable on some problematic Amigas (mainly A1200 machines).
  • Fully compatible with the Commodore 64. The original CD32 gamepad (and my previous KTRL CD32 gamepad) has pull-up resistors on some pins which will result in some keys not working on the C64 while the gamepad is plugged in. These pull-up resistors are required for reliable CD32 gamepad functionality. On the KTRL CD32+, you can easily disable these pull-up resistors (alternative two-button mode), resulting in full C64 compatibility. With an optional two-button adapter, you will even get two button functionality in some C64 games.
  • Can store default settings. The KTRL CD32+ has a default preset, as well as the four other presets, that will be loaded at start-up if it has been stored.
  • Uses less components and has better positioning of LED pins and right shoulder button pins -> faster assembly time.
  • Printed instructions with cheat sheet. Optional laminated stickers for the button symbols and DPAD.
I will sell kits (possibly also PCBs with presoldered SMD components) on Amibay and a VERY limited amount of assembled gamepads. These include the gamepad, box, printed instructions and the optional laminated stickers (stickers require cutting).

I’m interested in an assembled game pad. Want to make sure Metro Siege works well with this controller!

Interested in one fully assembled kit.
I have the old version, but this new one sounds cool.

I‘m also interested in a fully assembled Kit. How much for postage to Germany?
Maybe I can show it on Amiga34 if I receive it in time.

Interested in a gamepad (or even just a PCB!) if any remain :)

nickey 24 September 2019 09:03

Interested in a fully assembled game pad also...

BSzili 24 September 2019 12:20

I'll wait for the kits and loose pre-soldered PCBs :)

Interested in an assembled one

DamienD 24 September 2019 21:20

Oh no, not another thread where 10 million people say "Interested in..."

Remember that this is a "News" thread guys and therefore broadcast across the whole abime.net.

Please keep it for updates to the product from MickGyver / comments related to these updates.

If you are "Interested in..." then send him a PM where he can keep track of these requests.

Picard 24 September 2019 22:08

Good job creating these pads, thank you.
I'm also interested these maybe 1-2 units.Since i never got chance to get older one.

DamienD 24 September 2019 22:15

*cough*

See post directly above yours Picard...

Yes, please PM me for requests. I will assemble only a very limited amount, I will create a sales thread over at Amibay as soon as I have the time (I'm currently on a short trip). I will PM the ones who has declared interest thus far! :)

Looking really nice. I loved the previous iteration :great

lmimmfn 09 October 2019 04:22

Thanks very much MickGyver, arrived today, packaging and assembly are top notch as is programmable buttons and looks fantastic. Still figuring it out but jump button in Turrican 2 is a godsend. Well done mate, thanks its fantastic

interested in fully assembled

demon-knight 09 October 2019 14:00

Sweet, PM sent

tooloudtoowide 09 October 2019 20:00

interested in pcb with components

eXeler0 12 October 2019 01:21

Just wanted to say that I've received the gamepad and tried it out. Works great and looks and even package are very nicely done. (you get a manual! :-)
