Title: GX4000/Plus Joypad
Post by: VincentGR on 16:29, 01 February 19
Hi,


I tried some Famiclone joypads (only pressed directions) to my 464 Plus with no luck.
Even a genuine SMS controller I have with my adapter is not working at all while it is just fine on my non Plus machines  :(


So, is there any joypad for sale at a reasonable price?

So this works by default? No rewiring?

Too bad this sale is expired, looking at his page if there is a new one.


Thank you my friend.

Look for a coolbaby console , comes with 2 pads on 9 pin connectors and console for about 20 quid will probably work

That link is broken, it should be: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392221289731 (http://Https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F392221289731)
However, clicking the link seems to remove the ":" after https, so copy past the link to follow it.

Thanks Bryce, not sure what went wrong with pasting the link.


If people prefer the SNES style one of these looks quite cheap with a couple of 9 pin controller https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Retro-Mini-TV-8-Bit-Video-Game-Console-Built-in-620-Gaming-Player-For-Kids/153149524090 (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Retro-Mini-TV-8-Bit-Video-Game-Console-Built-in-620-Gaming-Player-For-Kids/153149524090?hash=item23a86c487a:g:qNkAAOSwjuFbhFaN:rk:1:pf:0)
