To which gaming console this gamepad belong to and can i use it with a pc? Answered
Hello! I'm new at Instructables. Plz give reply to my question. During childhood I used to have a game console just like the NES, SNES, etc. I don't own it now but i still have its gamepad and cassettes. I want to use it with my pc as a HID device to play games. But i don't know that which console i had and so I don't know the type of communication its gamepad had with the console (serial, analogue, or digital). So i'm unable to use it with my pc.
It has a DB 9 plug but not all the 9 pin holes are accomodated. Only five of them are, ie, it has only five wires. I have given the images of the cassette ( that contained the roms) and the plug (DB9) and the internal circuitry. As you can see there is no complex circuit in it. It just has a big black dot which contains the program of the game pad. This gamepad used to perform 8 different actions ( up, down, left, right, select, start, A, and B). The rest of the buttons are just like a turbo button for A and B buttons. If you know which console it belongs to, plz tell me and if you also know the way to hook it up to a pc the it is much better. Thanks in advance.
