I would be happy to beta test if I can get one.  I currently have a  This Old Game adapter and an original SW yoke.  I am having trouble calibrating this for MAME.  There is a dead zone I cannot resolve in MAME, that is also present in the Windows 7 calibration screen.  If your adapter resolves this I would gladly pay 🙂

I have one of those too and you can turn the dead zone on and off.
You can turn it on and off by holding either the left trigger and thumb button together or right trigger and thumb button together when you plug it into the computer. I haven't changed it since I installed it so I'm not sure which one turns it on and which one is off.

Thanks!  I will try that.

Any updates on this adapter?

 

Thanks

 

I see the adapter is now available. Sweet!

 

Question: What testing has been done on it (which platforms etc)? Did it turn out as  a plug and play adapter on pi/Windows?

Just would like to know what to expect.

Thanks!

I’ve ordered a Yoke and I’m also happy test the USB Yoke flight adaptor.
I’m running versions in testing building a full reproduction upright Atari cabinet.
I have MAME on Windows 7, Windows 10 Pro and XP. Also keen to see how it tests with AAE emulator.
Please let me know if you need another tester.

Thanks.

No more testers needed.   The Star Wars flight yoke USB adapters are for sale now.  The firmware is flashable, so as the firmware gets improved, owners will be able to upgrade their chips.

The firmware has been given to the community via an open source license.  It is found here:  Firmware on GitHub

I have both the ram controls and this old game yoke adapters. I ran into the dead zone problem and the this old game  adapter had issues with windows 10.

I wound up installing win 7 and was able to get it to work in mame, but it was never like the real game.

I have purchased the alan1 flight yoke and usb adapter hoping they will work better on my firefox cabinet. I am doing a fresh install of windows 10, and hope to be experimenting in the next few weeks once I have mame and game ex arcade installed.

I wish I would of known about turning off the deadzone. I would of liked to of tried that to see if it worked.
