I use raspberry pi running retropie and have many official controllers converted to play every console. However I canít find one for turbografx to USB adapter.
I found one for circuit, but I would like to buy one built.

The protocol is pretty simple (basically a Genesis 3-button with turbo and a different connector). You only need five signals, so a basic ATtiny85 doing bit-banged USB could do it (something like the Digispark). Sourcing the DIN jack to save the cable is going to inflate the BoM cost by a large margin, though. You should just detach the original cable and stick the USB stuff inside the pad (if there's room).

I just use an SNES or Dualshock pad for everything

An adapter is finally available for this project. It just took an extra step since I had to convert the Turbo to a PC engine
