Lesson P7 - Joystick Reading on the X68000

Post by akuyou » Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:50 pm

The X68000 doesn't have it's 'own' joystick... it uses a 9 pin port, that quite strangely supports 2 button MSX joypads, or 8 button Genesis / Megadrive joypads (6 fires + Mode/Start)

This gives us a joypad layout that rivals the NeoGeo - and more than we're ever likely to need... it's not to hard to get the data out the joypad either, lets learn how to do it!
