    Very keen! I have to admit, I'm pretty stoked about playing some 'Kaboom!' with paddles again. I have my original 2600, various controllers and a slew of cartridges, but it just hasn't been convenient to hook it all up in quite some time. I guess it's been over ten years now.



  • @mediamogul ok so here is how the colored wires need to be. notice the yellow (5v) and black (ground) are on opposite sides depending on which paddle. if your wire colors are by any chance different note that 5v will be the same color on both paddles. the different color wires goes to the center pin. i jumpered a black ground wire from the black ground wire on the buttons. then in your paddle games in the menu you need to go into game properties on every game and set player 1 and 2 to paddles on every paddle game. in input settings you need to setup paddle 0 analog, paddle 0 fire, paddle 1 analog and paddle 1 fire. to set paddles just turn the paddle. need to exit a game and re enter for changes to take effect. before entering a game plug in the paddles with the paddles center-ish. and they need to be plugged into the adapter and centered before you plug the adapter into the wiimote.

    Very... very, very, very cool.

    I'll dig out a set of controllers tonight and take a look under the hood.



  • @mediamogul i wrong about 1 thing. You do need to set the paddle 0 fire. I forgot that on the dolphinbar the nunchucks buttons are button 6 and 7. When you set up the paddles, set paddle 0’s fire button first. The paddle with button 6 is paddle 0 and the one with button 7 is paddle 1



  • @mediamogul one adapter ready. sorry about the white cable. i used what i had lying around.

    So, lemme get this straight: you modded Atari paddles such that you can now plug them into a custom adapter that then plugs into a Wii controller's nunchuck port, and THAT actually controls mouse input via a Mayflash Dolphin bar? So, you effectively created Bluetooth Atari Paddles? Did I get that right?

    EDIT: Oh, and you have the buttons working too, of course. !!!



  • @caver01 it doesnt control mouse unless you make the axis 0/1 (left analog) control a mouse. But with the dolphin bar the nunchucks 2 buttons are 6 & 7. Why mayflash didnt do things uniform between the classic controller, the wiimote and the nunchuck and have all their buttons match is beyond me. So this adapter uses the left analog and i either the triggers or shoulder buttons
