In a pinch you can always grab a DB-15 solder connector and pull it apart. The shipping on cables from overseas just isn't worth it for me, so a modded DB15 connector is perfect for me.

Are you able to make this 15 pin to two NES controller port adapters? This would be really cool for my AV Fami. I am willing to pay $$$$ and supply the needed parts.

I've made one a few months ago. If you're interested let me know.

From what I've heard some games won't work with these adapters. Is that true? If so, is there any list of non-working games?

Any game that doesn't read controllers from the expansion port won't work. I'm not aware of any lists but it's mostly non-Japan made games (not all non-Japan made games though) and Super Mario USA. The majority of games by Japanese companies does support it.
Also 3/4 player games will use the expansion port controllers for player 3 and 4 only, and the built-in controllers for player 1 and 2.

I really like the design of the build in controller but the cable length just sucks. You really have to sit in front of the TV, can't even lay down or sit anywhere. Sad

Yeah, the cable length sucks. I have the Twin Famicom sit right next to me on the floor while playing.  Grin

I have one of these that I'd sell for $25 shipped in the US:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Famicom-to-NES-Cable-Converter-Adapter-Connect-NES-Controller-or-Zapper-to-FC-/272020190707?hash=item3f55aab5f3:g:muIAAOSwpDdVMl~D

It's stated in the description, but note that it doesn't work with 2 NES controllers at once. A friend of mine made me a custom adapter and I no longer need this one.


SOLD!
