Atari 5200 FAQ

The Masterplay 5200 Interface:

This is THE device to have for any collector or die-hard gamer. The handy plug-in unit allows 5200 owners to replace the system''s analog joystick with any number of 2600-compatible, digital joysticks. In addition, the Interface features a slide switch so that a digital joystick can be used in either a remote ''start'' mode or a ''fire'' model depending upon the game. A second slide switch lets you keep the unit permanently connected to the console so that the analog controller functions, including the use of the keyboard portion by itself, can be accomplished simply and easily. The Masterplay Interface originally came packaged with a second fire button for games that require it. This button can either be taped or velcroed to the 2600-compatible controller.

The power adapter depends on which version of the 5200 you have. If your system has 4 controller ports on it, the adapter and RF Switch are in the same unit (sparks fly when connecting the power source by the way).
The other works like the 2600 switch and has 2 controller ports.

as for the 4 port 5200 go here

or here

or if you want to see it actually hooked up in a video use gogle and look up "AVGN Atari 5200"

I love this console! It wasn't my first (that honor going to the interton vc 4000) but is certainly one of my favorites. I got one when the supersystem first hit stores and wiled away many an hour on it. Some people don't like this console because of the easy-to-break controllers, and the small game collection, but in my opinion its a real gem, if not for everyone.

I bought a 5200 in 83
I reacquire it in 2003
I need to know more about the power adapter.
