Modified Mega Drive controller for Amiga
« on: October 11, 2012, 14:17:32 PM »
I hate joysticks and I hate up being jump, so something I did a while ago was modify a Mega Drive controller so that C = Jump, B = Fire and A = other



I just cut the traces for the C & A buttons then wired C to UP (long wire) and A to C (short wire).

Nice idea, I've had the same problems playing Amiga games on a pad, being old I forget that up is jump and not a button.  8)
