First, I have to admit that I am coming from the C64 scene. :-) I hope I am still welcome. I have a special question: are there still Master System pads being produced by third parties today? I saw that there are a couple of SNES pads available, but did not see any for the Master System. Also, are the pads from the SMS 1 and 2 technically identical? I am asking bec\use there are a handful of C64 games that make use of the 2nd button on the pad.
Yeah, only that the Mega Drive pad has some slightly different specificatios, which is apparently necessitating some small fixes if they are to be hooked up on the Commodore. Basically any controller which is technically identical to the original Master System pad would be suitable!
