NES controller extension. HELP!!!!!!11!!!!
« on: September 16, 2017, 05:42:41 am »

Now I have your attention :duckhunt

I have a light gun for my NES, but it turns out the extension leads I have are not wired for all seven pins, and so the light gun doesn't work with the extension :(

Does anyone have a fully wired extension? If so, do you know what brand it is for sure? The ones I have were cheap aftermarket ones, so I don't know about brand.

Yeah I was looking at the zapper to 9 pin serial cable option.



Nice suggestion Vigo!  :applaud:
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.
