Long Play Disc Controller
Côté Gamers is pleased to present its Intellivision controller.
Specially designed to be held horizontally like the so-called "modern" controllers, it is also light and modular. You can indeed change its disc by a D-pad or a mini joystick.
Moreover, we have provided a left-handed version, with the disc on the right.
This controller is compatible with all Intellivision models + Sear Video Arcade but requires an adapter for models 1 and 3, available here : Adapter
Using this controller does not prevent you from keeping the original controllers.
•The controller is compatible with Intellivision 2 and Sear Video Arcade.
•You can use it with Intellivision 1 and 3 with an adapter.
•This controller doesn't need any soldering. You just have to open your Intellivision with a screwdriver to place the controller tip receptacle.
•The controller is held horizontally.
•It is 3D printed.
•The controller comes mounted with a D-pad, but you can replace it with a disk, which is provided.
•The controller is delivered in a box with instructions and a making-of as we like to propose you usually.
•The size is roughly that of a hand, for a light but effective grip.
•The controller supports overlays. The overlay is not sliding out, it is retained by a holder.
•The top button(s) is the one at the bottom. The 2 others are right and left as on original controller.
•With the disc in place you’ll have the 16 directions, with DPad in place you are limited to 8 directions.
•The controller uses micro switches, no mylar (to be technical : 12 switches are used for the disc but there are also diodes involved to bring 2 signals down to GND for each switch. This is acting like the original mylar without the need for DPDT switches, DPDT switches were used in first drawings / prototypes.)
•The size and shape is same as Intellivision I controllers. The original design had the wire coming out at same position than INTV 1 also, that allowed to put them in the original spot. We’ve moved the cable due to reactions to our initial video and testers feedback.
•Each controller comes with a « Dual Action » extension. You need to remove the dongle seen on the picture and connect a cable that also connects to the second port on the console.
