Quick question, the MSX FAQ has a picture of the joystick port connections. However, it does not state if it is from the socket the MSX side facing out, or the other way round, PCB connections? I am looking to rewire some NES Konami Hypershot controllers just unsure of the connection diagram? I know RUN goes to the LEFT hand control, and JUMP goes to fire. Just want to make sure! https://www.faq.msxnet.org/connector.html#joystick
The inside of the NES controller appears to be compatible

See the inside from around 1:20

I *think* it should work without any issues? Has anyone else tried this modification?

I have converted the NES Hypershot controllers, to MSX Hypershot controllers. These seem to function without issue, although the HID test program does not like them. Sadly, my hands are not as nimble as they used to be. The Speed controller on my Sony HBFX1DJ slows down the CPU speed so that it looks like i am run a mile in 4 minutes Wink
