Does anybody know where I can purchase an adaptor so I can use my Saturn pads on my dreamcast?

I bought one years ago at a car boot sale but I could do with another, but I just cant find anything (lots of DC to PS converts but no Saturn to DC)?

Any help would be much apreciated?

I'm sure you could wire the Saturn controller into the Dreamcast controller yourself. I've seen Saturn controllers wired into Xbox 360 controllers.

Another option: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-h5-49-en-70-46.html

Doing your own adapter like the SS->Xbox one (http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=509748&st=165&p=3546461) is not worth it unless you are looking for a nice electronics project :)

I have a all in one saturn, PSX/PS2, and DC converter for my Xbox. Its called the magic box controller adapter. They also have them for the PC. I have both and both work really good, except for the DC analog stick which is really twitchy. Btw, just bought the total control 3 adapter for my DC yesterday. :) Those things can be hard to find so if u want one go buy one at play-asia right now!

Thanks for the feedback peeps.

I didnt really fancy taking a contoller apart to make it work, but I've since found what I wanted on ebay! :)

I managed to pick up an 'Innovation' DC adaptor for $10 that supports PS1, PS2 and Sega Saturn pads... plus I can also still use the VMU units with it!

I would have purchased the ones listed in this thread from Playasia, but unfortunetly they dont ship to the UK (god I miss Liksang). :(

The whole reason I wanted my Saturn pads to work on my DC is cause I think the official SS pad layout with the 6 buttons is simply the best for Vs fighting games! I know there have been lots of pads out for various consoles that look simliar to the SS one, but for me none can match the Saturn pads for doing moves on 'Super Street fighter 2 turbo X', 'Marvel Vs Cacpom 2' etc. :)

why not the sony psp?

and im glad u found sumthin. most ppl want the DC/SS so they can use the twin sticks for VOOT, etc.

skipping all of that maybe the Treamcast controller should had been ur 1st choice

'course if u had ur old skool SS pads ud want to put them to use. when u start playing tell me how the SS pad converts all the DC's buttons, triggers, analog, etc.

i also cant help but wonder what this would do on a regular DC

u don't compensate. u can really only play the games that don't need those extra bottons and secound anolog.

The bottom first 2 are for the PC one, the middle one is the cheapest btw. and the only place I found that still had the Xbox version on their site was play -asia which is the bottom link. but its sold out :(

If you read the posts in this thread all is revealed! :D

I wish Mame4all didnt need the the analog to insert credits cause this doesnt work with the saturn pad. :( ...at the mo I've got to put a normal DC pad in to another port to be able to play it (this is the same for the official sega DC arcade stick too). :(

Yeah but the first original Saturn d-pad doesn't really feel like a d-pad. And I don't like d-pads that much either. that y I wan't more anolog support on emulators and homebrew stuff for Dreamcast. Yes, yes, it may be easier to program the d-pad but that doesn't excuse it dammit :mad:

Yes thank u. All u other programmers take note. WE WANT ANOLOG SUPPORT DAMMIT!!!! No excuses either. Like GenesisPlus needs Anolog support. I would almost say its better than SegaGen but its not. SegaGen has Anolog support, button configuration, etc. Not only that but the GameShark and CodeBreaker codes that was made for the roms on Sega Smash Pack. Yes it may be an illegal emulator, its still better :)
