Today I talk about a Adapter cable to connect two joysticks Mega Drive (Sega Genesis) the PC via USB (Genesis to PC USB Cable BRAND NEW for Sega Genesis) acquired on eBay from the seller pnpgames.
This adapter is the solution to play Mega Drive games (Sega Genesis) on the PC with the original controls of the Mega Drive, making the experience with the nearest emulators that one experiences with a real Mega Drive console. You can connect up 2 joysticks Mega Drive with a single Adapter cable to connect two joysticks Mega Drive (Sega Genesis) the PC via USB. The adapter supports both the controls 3 buttons as the 6 buttons. For the latter, the MODE button can also be mapped, totaling 8 buttons (A, B, C, X, And, From, Start, Mode) beyond the directional button.
With the Adapter cable to connect two joysticks Mega Drive (Sega Genesis) the PC via USB, joysticks Mega Drive runs on PC as common PC joysticks, can be used in any Mega Drive emulator or even emulators of other consoles and PC games.
Those who follow the Skooter Blog know that I have a console Mega Drive conectado à TV via SCART->HDMI, with a Mega Everdrive, then no longer use emulators to play Mega Drive, only in the original game console. But either way it's always good to have another alternative joysticks for PC, up because hardware is not eternal and the Mega Drive is no longer manufactured. Sooner or later all Mega Drive the world will end pifando and will remain only the emulators. Yes, I know Tec Toy also manufactures something with the name Mega Drive, but the current hardware has nothing to do with the original Mega Drive, and the Mega Drive games run through emulators.
I tested Adapter cable to connect two joysticks Mega Drive (Sega Genesis) the PC via USB with the original joystick of my Mega Drive, having 3 buttons, and the Drivers 6 Buttons ASCII 'Rhino' for Mega Drive (Mega Drive ASCII ‘Rhino’ 6 button controller). Both worked perfectly.
