I took a NES controller and added wire to the IC pins for the buttons and ground. I ran these wires to a female printer port. i used a printer to serial cable to connect the NES controller to the hummer 9 pin Dsub. i used this "schematic" www.instructables.com/id/EQEQ5DUUO5EQZJIM43. GND is next to the RIGHT pin.
It works fairly well but it seems to stick a bit when trying to move smoothing from one direction to an other. I don't know if this is the controller wiring or just the games.
I have noticed that I seem to be miss one more button for games like Contra. There is a jump and fire button but all I have is fire. Are the patched games patched only for one button not two? I cant play Contra with out being able to jump.
How do I load .d64 files with 64HDD? When I do LOAD "$",8 I will see .d64 files as "$filename.d64". It will load but half way through the TV screen will go black and freezes. I tried loading Giana.d64 and a different .d64 game i downloaded.

Okay. Great work guys. I've added Lode Runner and PacMan to my website. Originally, I had imagined about 10 games tops ever being converted. If many more pop up, I may have to re-design the games section for the hummer as the one page is getting too large! That is a good, thing, of course!
