hi everyone, I was wondering if it would be possible to make a USB adaptor that you could plug a TurboTap into and be able to use all 5 joysticks (or just a single joystick at once) on a PC using magic engine and write drivers for?

For projects that seemed to have worked before, there is a TurboGrafx 7 player joystick adaptor for the parallel port here. And the only document I could find that might work describing how to make a USB joystick using the parallel port here.

Alternatively, someone is selling "retrokits" (USB adaptors) which pretty much cost close to the same price an entire TurboGrafx controller used to cost that let you connect one joystick (I emailed him and it doesn't work with the TurboTap to connect 5 joysticks) to a USB port here.
