Here is a picture of the new version (a bit less ugly than the prototype)
For very few euros you can build your own. I used MPlab for the development and MiniPro for PIC programming.

One of the best old console for shoot'em up is the megadrive (after PCE engine of course ).
I wanted to use a PSX arcade pad with a megadrive, so i decided to build this adapter.
This version is a derivative version of the work of Thomas Kirk (many thanks to him) who did it for atari and amiga db9 joystick.
You need a few set of components :
- 2 LEDs (optional)
- 3 resistors
- 1 DB9 female
- 1 PSX female connector (i used an extention cable for PSX).
Here is my ugly prototype :
And for a few bucks you can build you own. I used the MPlab software for PIC development and MiniPro to program the PIC.
All schematics, asm and hex files, plus any required informations to build your own adapter are here
