What do I need?

  • You will need one Atmega32u4 (e.g. Arduino Leonardo).
  • Two DB9 ports, better if you find a 90º version.
  • Original Mega Drive Controller
  • Follow step by step the how-to Long version
  • Use the file RetroJoystickAdapter_Megadrive.ino, comment the fist set of pins, and uncomment the second that says // if you use two DB9 connectors solded back to back on your ATmega32u4, you should use this inputs.
