いおな三四郎 JVS - Sega Saturn Gamepad I/O Bridge Board

This program makes an Arduino Nano work as a JVS I/O Board that allows you to connect a Sega Saturn Gamepad to NAOMI. Twin-Stick also works for Virtual-On.

Default is Twin-Stick mode. It maps as it works for Virtual-On as is.

  JVS SWs     Twin-Stick         Gamepad
 1P Start  - Start             - Start
 1P Up     - Left Stick Up     - Pad Up
 1P Down   - Left Stick Down   - Pad Down
 1P Left   - Left Stick Left   - Pad Left
 1P Right  - Left Stick Right  - Pad Right
 1P Push 1 - Left Trigger      - L
 1P Push 2 - Left Button       - R
 2P Up     - Right Stick Up    - Y
 2P Down   - Right Stick Down  - B
 2P Left   - Right Stick Left  - X
 2P Right  - Right Stick Right - Z
 2P Push 1 - Right Trigger     - A
 2P Push 2 - Right Button      - C

Once a combination of X and Z, or B and Y is detected, the mode will be changed to normal Gamepad mode. You can not make any of these combinations by Twin-Stick as it's right stick left and right, or up and down.
