Seeking for jamma control driver. for pcx64



  • Ok, so, in the windows emulation world, i like to use this grea old , i call them encoders but im not sure what the correct name is, wich are pc to jamma, i dont used the vga por anymore as its easyer to use lcd directly to the computer, i just really use them for the controllers and the sound, the sound works directly, no need for a driver, so does the vga, it only uses a driver for the controllers wich in reallity are 3 snes chip controller. Now in the old DOS days we used, sneskey, wich you can find information a bout it here
    snes key 9
    Now as years passed, in the hyperspin with windows 7 years i used psxpad driver wich i download from here
    psxpad
    and because this thing manages the snes controllers via parallel port, i cant seem to find acurate information , but on this page
    snes control via parallel port
    so i was wondering if theres a way or a driver you guys can help install to use this on pc.Or if is allready implemented what do i need to do. Thanks for any help.

  • @javier-sandoval Could you detail how you expect to expect that to your pi ?

    @javier-sandoval when was the last time you bought a new pc with a parrallel port ?
    Haven't seen one in ten years I think. Maybe fifteen

    as a matter o fact i buy old pcs all the time, i dont live in the US or Europe, here in mexico a dual core o core dos duo pc goes betwen 15 to 30 bucks, with around 2gb ram ,pretty decent for old emulation. Tomorrow im a buy one more, and those pc to jamma things, are around 15 bucks, you can solder the cables or save time with a jamma harnes.Plus its easy to buy local, no need for shipping.

    @javier-sandoval ok i remembered that you spoke about it a while ago and tht's why I spoke about new computers nit old ones.
    I don't think it would work well on such an old computer and i don't think recalbox handles parallel port and neither that the 2.5 developers team will have time to code to support something which disapeared ten years go

    Well, recalbox runs super smooth on this old pc, eve psx ad n64 games runs flawlless and no errors, so no, you dont need a new pc for recalbox, i still use hyperspin, and it does run well, and for the ones that like dreamcast or newer games , a decent old video card does the job too. And about jamma being death for 10 years, boy you couldnt be more wrong, this things are still sold normal, and whoever invented this, they even developed one for the original xbox, one for ps2 and we have another for xbox 360, i just happen to use the pc one, theres one that uses usb controls but that one goes for abour 30 bucks, i might buy one and try with recalbox, as i do understand developers not wanting to workfor a feature that not many people find usefull. Thanks anyway.

    @javier-sandoval I meant off course parallel port not jamma

    Good thing that such old computers work fine !
