Hi!

Can anyone on this forum tell me how to convert a standard atari/amiga-joystick to msx. I have looked at the msx pin specification, can I reconnect in this way:

(atari->msx)

1 -> 1

2 -> 2

3 -> 3

4 -> 4

6 -> 6

7 -> 5

8 -> 9

9 -> 7

... but what is pin 8 (Output 3) used for on the msx?

Pin 8 is used to output a signal to 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 when the appropriate button / direction is pressed. This way, the MSX can recognize which button / direction is pressed.

Maybe www.msxhans.msx2.com has also some background info on this?
