Lesson P11 - Joystick Reading on the Genesis

Post by akuyou » Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:46 pm

The original Genesis controller had 3 fire buttons, and one select... but later on, to compete with the SNES an extra 3 buttons were added,

We need to use a control port to select the keys to read in, then read the actulal keystates from a second port, Lets take a look!
