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.

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.

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



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!)

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.

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!

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:

http://cgi.ebay.es/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=150338628116

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