CMS, (PC Style) to Amiga adapter

Postby JohnVella » Thu Mar 05, 2020 9:23 pm

I recently bought a CMS Super 8 controller, with a 15 pin PC connector, with the intention of adapting it to work on my Amiga. My google skills have let me down, and I cannot find either a wiring diagram or a ready built adapter for the life of me.
I have found some adapters but they all seem to only work with analogue joysticks.
Does anybody have either a wiring diagram or a link to a working adapter that they could share?

pc wiring is pretty complicated as it's digital, not analogue... there's resistors and opposite directions have 1 always on, 1 always off... or something like that, so from my understanding (which is limited) a 15pin to 9pin adaptor would need to reverse all of that nonsense, which i'm not 100% sure is possible... at least, I've never seen an adaptor that works.

the easiest thing to do that i've found at least, is to basically rewire it inside... I just couldn't find any other way that could make digital work on analogue.
