controller port pinouts?

Post by triffid_98 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 1:25 pm

Hi all,

I've been looking around for the controller pinouts for the 3DO, and I can't seem to find them. Can anyone show me a link?

I'm particularly interested in the ones for the 'gun' controller since these seem to be rare as hens teeth these days. I mean really, it's a photodiode and a switch with some extra bits to tell the 3DO 'I'm a gun controller'.

The only thing I was able to locate was this, which isn't the 3do gun, it's the one for the ALG laserdisk. ... lg_gun.asp

Apparently there was once a writeup on this, but the link is dead and MIA on

I saw a Russian site that provided details on making a 3DO to PSX joypad converter. not necessarily the same thing - but it may help. I'll dig it out.

3DO kid.
