Atari Joystick

Postby PPGG » Tue May 29, 2018 5:51 pm

Hello RetroX community,

I'm looking for a good quality Atari-clone joystick to play Atari games (2600/5200/7800) with my young son on RetroX.

Any recommendations ?

Will Retrox App-navigation have problems with a single-button game-pad ?

Thanks a lot for the support.

I've seen some adapters for classic Atari joysticks to be used with an USB port, but some people have reported having issues with them:

There is also some Atari style joysticks, but reviews are not good

As for navigation, yes you would need at least a second button to work as "back", and another two to exit the emulators (START + SELECT)
