PC Games Port To Amiga Games Port Adaptor For My WinUAE Projects.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

This is a special adaptor cable for some of my WinUAE projects on AMINET.
For example the Analogue to Digital Converter project:-

http://main.aminet.net/hard/hack/WinUAE-ADC.lha

It is NOT, repeat NOT, for general AMIGA Joystick use at all. It is
primarily a conversion cable for the above. Read the 'Legal Stuff' below.

Notes:-
-------

Once this cable is made connect the 15 Way ~D~ Type Plug to the PC
analogue Games Port and run up ~Windows XX~ ~Games Controller~ software
from ~Control Panel~.

Just enable the 2 Axis, 2 Button Joystick mode and then ~calibrate~ the
cable by clicking on OK to all of the requesters that come up.

With CARE connect the A-D Converter to the 9 Way ~D~ Type Plug and rotate
the test variable resistor and watch the two ~red lights~ flash, this
will show that the board and the computer are talking to one another.

Exit the calibrate software and the PC is now ready to run the WinUAE
A-D Converter. Once this has been done there is NO need to do it again
on this partciular machine.

This adaptor cable means that the A-D Converter can have a genuine
AMIGA ~D~ Type SOCKET fitted and be used on a genuine AMIGA also.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is a very simple project using this cable and an ultra simple piece
of home built hardware in the next issue of the mag.

USB To Analogue Games Port Converter.
-------------------------------------

The A-D Converter for WinUAE works with a commercial USB to Games Port
adaptor. This adaptor gives a PC with a USB port a fully functional PC
style 15 Way ~D~ Type socket, original, analogue games port.
