64JPX - JoyPad eXpander
for Commodore, Amiga and Atari compatible systems

OVERVIEW
64JPX is a small interface designed to rejuvenise the way with which you play your favourite games on the Commodore or Atari system.

Whilst joysticks were all the rage in the 70s and 80s, the 1990s saw a move towards joypad style controllers with more buttons and ergonomic feel. 64JPX not only allows you to safely connect Sega Genesis/MegaDrive, Nintendo SNES/NES joypads or other controllers to your retro system, it enhances game play with a number of on-the-fly selectable play modes.

64JPX will give your favourite old games a new lease of life, and may actually make you play better!

Free postage and free 1351-port on 2nd 64JPX purchased.

RED: for users who only want to connect their Sega Genesis or MegaDrive controllers. Works with 3 and 6 button controllers. The Start button allows the different enhancement modes to be selected. The Sega controller directly connects to the 64JPX interface. Price: US$19.95

plus US$5.00 postage

BLUE: for users who only want to connect their Nintendo controllers. Works with SNES and NES button controllers. The Start and Select buttons toggle the different enhancement modes available. You will need a pin-adaptor to connect your Nintendo controller to the 64JPX interface. Price: US$19.95

plus US$5.00 postage

PURPLE*: a combination of RED and BLUE interfaces. The 64JPX interface auto-detects which controller is attached (Sega/SNES/NES) and configures itself for it. You will need a pin-adaptor to connect your Nintendo controller to the 64JPX interface, or you can order the bundle which includes a modified controller.

A flexible alternative if you want to use different controllers.

Price: US$23.95

plus US$5.00 postage

ORANGE*: a combination of the RED (Sega) interface and support for analog PC type controllers (DB15 connectors). The 64JPX interface auto-detects which controller is attached (Sega/PCanalog) and configures itself for it. You will need a pin-adaptor to connect your PC analog controller to the 64JPX interface.

A flexible alternative if you want to use different controllers.

Price: US$23.95

plus US$5.00 postage

BLACK: budget version for users who only want to protect their C64 from Sega Master System, Genesis or MegaDrive controllers. Not all buttons work, and because the interface is 'chipless' there are no enhancement modes. Price: US$14.95

plus US$5.00 postage

* Note, only combination interfaces have the auto-detection circuit installed.
