Up until now the only way to install the pause button into the controller was to do a messy deadbug install with no real way of making sure the switch hole was positioned well.

To make sure it is really the cable that is at fault, you should use a multimeter in continuity mode, and measure between the end of the cable with the connector, and the respective points at the pcb:s. I also think that if we’re trying to match the look of the original controller, that the red line around the D-Pad should be a bit thinner.For the majority of controllers, very little information about them is currently available to the public. The only problem is that certain games will not work with this or other Genesis controllers (for example, Wonder Boy in Monster Land).

The 8 point D-pad works great with Arcade ports so although there is an Arcade pad alternative to this controller, this one is more than adequate.

The original Master System controller really isn’t such a bad controller – it’s just not a fair fight by any stretch when compared to the Honey Bee.Having said that, I can’t speak to the longevity of the device as it hasn’t existed for 30 years yet. Just like the Arduino Leonardo, the pro micro can out of the box emulate a keyboard when importing the keyboard library. I could use my scheme from when I repaired the Wico Q stick joystick in a previous post to identify button 1 + up / down / left / right, followed by placing the multimeter in pin 9 to see what cable color button 2 had (as seen below, it was yellow). Having to rush to the console and whack a button (especially if a game had an inventory menu when paused) was a major hassle that could have been easily rectified. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

It’s sort of an interpretation of what Sega might have designed their controller as if they had an NES style controller that was blank and needed some flourishments.They house the components to make the pause button work via an impossible button combination and they double as drill templates for cutting the switch holes. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy. Here, I actually preferred the original Master System buttons, but that’s really only personal preference, because using buttons 1 and 2 works perfectly on either controller. Button also doubles as a START button, meaning it is only possible to pause a game by pressing the pause button on the console itself. Less cramping happens as you’re not wrapping the entirety of your hands and fingers around a controller.

The buttons are well suited to rapid bashing and it's sturdy enough that only the most heavy handed would stand a chance to break it. If this is something that bothers you, they do offer a custom 3D printed plate to cover them if you’d prefer. If you have a model 2 Master System it is recommended to use the separate Dual Pause Button QSB mod kit and the Master System 2 region mod kit as this will require less wire work and allow for a neater install.

I'm one of those purists, though, and I've never used anything but what the original designers intended for the system on any of my systems.

I can’t believe how cheap this kit is either, because it’s clearly good quality, and made by someone who loves the retro gaming hobby. Not having used the arcade joysticks, I cannot speak to how well they function for playing Master System games, but I was not entirely pleased with the original model controller nor a Sega Genesis controller. As with the Sega Mark III, the D-Pad is a rounded square to avoid legal issues with Nintendo's patented cross-shaped design.
