raparici, I've been updating my post as I find new information that may be helpful to your issue. Maybe you missed this in my post. I think it may be worth a try.

2600-daptor II stripped FB1.hex - try this if you want to use with emulators other than Stella & EMU7800. This gets rid of the z-axis and disables button 1 when in 7800 mode - these can confuse the controller mapping in other emulators.

My Daptor 2600, is not Daptor II, but Daptor 2600 D9. As I commented I have no issues with VICE family of emulators.

New MiSTer update automatically detects the analog range, so it should be compatible with more joysticks without special tweaks.
Probably Daptor 2600 will work as well.

I tried in the Minimig core and it works perfect, thank you ! :-) will it work in all the other cores then ?

I have 2 issues with ÚSB joysticks:

1) https://koka-shop.de/competition-pro-us ... ition.html I bought the USB Comp Pro. I was able to define directions and buttons over the core menu, and it worked fine in the menu. However I can't get any response in the NES core.

2) https://www.ebay.de/i/232908040742 this USB->DB9 adaptor works fin under Windows, however cannot be configured in the core menu. Every button and direction is registered as 0001/0001. HID\VID_0001&PID_0001&REV_0102

Any tips for getting either or both working ?

I don't remember remember if the NES core has a "swap joysticks" option. You can also try remapping from within the NES core. If it worked for other cores, it will work for NES.

The second one will need looking at the debugger output to figure out what USB messages are being sent to your MiSTer.

yes. the swap joysticks did it for me on the NES. I will try the debugger and post the results here.

Long story shortened, I couldn't get anything on the SERIAL screen inspite of connecting correctly like described in the WIKI. Anyway....

It actually did work, defined right/left/up/down/B1 and skipped the rest. Was able to play NES with this USB->DB9 connector.

Tried this one also, and can confirm that it works fine too https://www.ebay.de/itm/253836508696

Hello

I'm trying to use an adapter called "INNEX ATARI Controller USB".

This is an older adapter that I probably bought 10 years ago.

I'd like to use my CD32 controllers with my MiSTer Amiga CD32.

Anyway both joysticks register the right and down and fire, however no up and left don't work or either stick.

I attached a Raspberry Pi and monitored the output from the serial console and no events were being reported for left or up.

I tried the adapter with the Raspberry Pi running RetroPie and had the exact same issue as MiSTer.

I figured the converter was defective so I tried the adapter under windows where it worked as expected.

I found a description of the problem I'm having here:

https://github.com/robmcmullen/hid-atari-retrobit

Is there a simpler fix than maintaining a non-standard kernel. I like this adapter because it supports two joysticks, however only one button is supported, so I'm considering a different adapter.

Thanks

As you already noticed, this adaptor supports only one fire button which will be not enough for many cores.
Look for modern gamepads instead. Chinese PS3 replica is very cheap and has a lot of buttons.
