$40.00

The GenAssister™ is a joystick interface for your Commodore 64/128.

  • Compatible with most 9-pin Sega Genesis/MegaDrive joysticks, including reproductions like the RetroBit;
  • Extremely responsive, offering less than 2ms latency;
  • Defaults to your Commodore’s Control Port 2 and uses START button to toggle main port;
  • “A” button performs fire on alternate joystick;
  • “B” button performs REGULAR fire or TURBO fire (depending on switch position);
  • “C” button performs UP, FIRE #2 (like on C64GS Annihilator joystick), or REGULAR fire (depending on switch position);
  • TURBO rapid-fires approx. 30 times/second;
  • Analog switches and built-in fuse provide safety from short circuits;
  • 3D printed ABS case;
  • Does not respond to X/Y/Z/MODE buttons;
  • BackBit is not affiliated with Sega, Genesis, MegaDrive or RetroBit brands in any way.

Example Configuration for R-Type or Turrican II:
– “A” performs SPACE (or button #1 fire)
– “B” performs TURBO fire
– “C” performs REGULAR Fire (for hold-and-fire actions)
