Adapter for connecting a Sega Megadrive D-pad Controller to your C64 / Amiga
Sega Mega D-pad Adapter for the Commodore 64 and the Amiga
A number of different models of D-pad controllers have been marketed for the Sega Megadrive (II).
The controllers for these machines are loved by retro console enthusiasts, and with the help of the Sega Mega D-pad Adapter it is now also possible to use these controllers on your Commodore 64 / 128 and Amiga computers.
Note that even though the Commodore machines and the Sega Mega Drive have the same 9-pin Sub-D connection, they are not electrically interchangeable and can seriously damage your beloved machine.
The Sega Mega D-Pad Adapter configuration :
The Configuration jumpers come with a color coding :
Yellow : Choice of Commodore 64 or Commodore Amiga compatibility.
Blue : D-pad key [UP] functionality : Enable / Disable
Red : Button [B] functionality : Fire 1, Fire 2, Up
White : Button [C] functionality : Fire 1, Fire 2, Up

This works great, so much better to use a mega drive pad than a joystick!<br />
Really like that you can configure some of the behaviour using jumpers, it means it should suit most preferences for button layout!
