Commercial Playstation to 9-pin D adapters
 
A user over at http://www.atari-forum.com is producing some adapters for Playstation pads to enable them to be used on the Amiga, Atari, Spectrum etc.

I am trying to get the developer to add CD32 support out of the box either in addition to current functions or as a special edition.

The prices are not bad, £15 in kit form, £20 assembled as an extension cable or £23 assembled including PS2 Analog pad.

Well I'm getting one.

Wow nice :)

I've got my trusty MegaSTe if thats what you mean?

Thanks for letting us know, and for trying to get the guy to make the adapters CD32 compatible. I always wanted one of those PS-CD32 adapters, but the guys who made them didn't seem to make many or sell them on eBay very often. For such a useful bit of hardware, I'm surprised someone hasn't already made a bulk lot of them to sell until now.

Very cool!
Hope for a CD32 version!

LOL, this has been done before. I have in my hands a PSX->amiga adapter (with analogue support) that supports the cd32 mapping completelly. plus it offers a "mouse mode" , you plug it in the mouse port and analogue stick moves teh mouse (duh)

here is a snip from the documentation:

>> ==========================
>> Controller Mode Selection.
>> ==========================
>> There are four controller modes supported:
>>
>> The 'Select' button on the playstation pad is used to override the
>> current controller mode.
>>
>> A more detailed description for controller override is given later...
>>
>> a) CD32 Mode (Default) 'Select'
>> b) Traditional Joystick Mode 'Select + L2'
>> c) Amiga Mouse Mode 'Select + R2'
>> d) Atari Mouse Mode 'Select + L2 + R2'


next version will have mirroring/mapping of UP direction to a button (so JUMP in games will not be the ultra-lame up direction) plus in the works is a serial->ps2 mouse adapter for older pc's :spin

EDIT: I forgot to mention, I have contacted the person that makes them, to check upon availabillity and status of the newer design... I will let you know :)

What about availability of the older design?

That picture has a Joystick connector (9-pin DSUB) that would not work with A600 (physically would not fit!)

keropi 09 March 2009 15:10

I was not aware/interested about the A600 issue... worked fine on A500/A1200/A4000 :)
I am waiting for an email responce, IIRC it costed ~20GBP

That is cos the joystick & mice ports are not in the side of the case like A600. The shrouds just do not fit against the plastic of the case.

Great! :crazy

Keropi, did you ever get a reply about the adapters? I'd rather buy one of those ones than some Atari one that doesn't already have all those CD32/analogue features.

Then maybe we can send one to the Tracker Hero guys and get proper PS2 Guitar support!

Nice ! :) I might just get one of these... altough I only have PS3 controllers... I wonder if he will make a PS3 version too in the future ? :)

I bought this wonderful adapter,waiting to reach me I couldn't resist buying a PSX controller but not the official one with CRAP CROSS-PIECE and look very console instead this retro look,apparently good cross-piece and fortunately without the sony logo:

I can't play analog games with it but I already have a PS2 controller in case:D
