Are you sure can search function to look up Sega Genesis 6 button pad hacking. and all the topics just seem to tangentially touch Genesis. Looking on Google people say Genesis 6 button controllers are very tough to padhack.
I also looked up alternatives like Brooke has a Genesis controller adapter,. And I’ve seen one on tototek. And I see adapters on Raphnet.
I would pick up one for tototek, except the button arrangements are so weird, I have no idea how they came up with him. It looks like total Tech did not design it for fight sticks in mind but for PlayStation 1 pads.
I tried to ask if I could rearrange the buttons,. They refund my money.
This is what I got to work with:
A right hand modded PlayStation 2 Street Fighter 15 joystick. the problem is I don’t want to unsolder and resolder buttons just make it work with Genesis in a predictable way and then back for all other systems.
I also have my custom stick wood uses a paradise Cthulhu and has been shown to remappable buttons working.
unfortunately the only Genesis adapters I see are the one from Brooke which require a PS4 controller which I don’t have plus only works with wireless and I got wired controller so that’s out of the question,. Plus the fact that it has rapid fire and button remap ability makes its questionable as competitive equipment.
That might work if I could use it in PS3 mode.
Also if I work on it right I could put a calorie mapping between the main joystick and the total Tech and use it in PlayStation 2 mode and set up the way it should be,. Kind of like how I came up with the collar idea to turn a bar stick into a yba stick for Super NES.
I would prefer a mapping of where to solder wires on a Genesis 6 button. I assume if your joystick starts with discrete inputs and ground, you just hook up each input pin to the appropriate actuator and the ground to the appropriate ground and then should be enough to make a discrete input joystick work with the Genesis.
but if Genesis 6 button pad hacking is tough even for season pad hackers, which means my general electronic practitioner has no chance, which one of the two adapters would be better PS2 to Genesis by a total Tech or PS4 to Genesis by a brook, or SNES to Genesis via raphnet adapter?
Rate all 3 in terms of tournament legality as well as quickness of processing time.
most of the pre NES systems having been documenter well enough where I could feel my way around and show it to my general practitioner handyman.
The only other two curveballs besides Genesis are ColecoVision which Edladdin has a PCB for, and Atari Jaguar, which I heard had a very complex PCB but thankfully it’s very easy to hack.
