    So I'm wondering if it's possible to take a joystick and use it as a d-pad. I want to use a 3ds slider for a joystick in place of the d-pad on a gameboy advance.

    I found a thread in the Guides section on something similar, but from looking at the diagram, it seems to be the opposite of what I want to do.

    Anyone got any ideas? If it can't be done (or rather can't be done with a reasonable amount of work) that's okay.

    This is what I'm looking for, except all the images are gone so I don't know what he actually did XD

    That's the one I saw. But it looks to me like it's the other way around. It has four switches and it looks like when you push them it emulates the resistance of a joystick.

    What I want is to have a joystick that when you move it it emulates the press of the dpad buttons. Am I just reading it wrong?

    Edit: to be clear, I don't want one of those joysticks that presses tact switches as you move it, but a 3ds slider.

    Yes, this does the opposite wrt what you want to get. I can redo the circuit you found on MR tomorrow if it's fine for you

    Lol oh nice to meet you! Aurelio was awesome and drew one up for me, but I think it would definitely be a good addition to the guide submissions hub.

    I'm also interested in using a 3DS slider in a gameboy. Can you post the circuit here?
