I think the Virtual Boy controller is the best controller ever.
I mean, there are good controllers out there, but the VB one is superb.
I Would like to play it on the PC.
Is there an adapter? has anyone thought about this?

That is interesting !
I always think of strike vector while playing red alarm. I wonder how that would work with a VB controller.

This is actually my very adapter that he features here on his page (by which I mean I commissioned him to design and make it). He made it for me a couple years ago and he does great work! I provided the controller port that I pulled from a "for parts" broken VB unit and he did the rest. The controller can be used with no power pack, but as a fun novelty it even has an alternate button mapping that you can enable by sliding the power switch on the controller (though you must have the power connectors on the back of the controller shorted which I do via dummy batteries in a battery pack).

If you really want one then he might make one for you. It wasn't super cheap but it wasn't absurd and I wanted to be able to use my VB controllers with Mednafen. It works great and it looks like a professional product!

I did a Power Glove to USB converter years ago that could be updated for this: http://www.mellottsvrpage.com/index.php/power-glove-linkbox-usb/

This design is also very very similar to the USB link cable adapter.

Is this something people are interested in? I could do a spin on a board to support this. I'd need to design the connector like I did for the link cable.

It would be great to be able to use the actual VB Controller when testing code on the emulator! I'd take a couple.

we are talking about a completed connector that would be plug-n-play for the end-user, correct? because I would love a couple of these myself.

I'd take one too if it didn't require donor parts. Particularly with the emergence of 2-player games. Are it saying you think your could fabricate the connector? Personally, I'm more interested in the other VB projects you have going on since you have so much on your plate, but that's easy for me to say.
