Jeff Pearson has completed his remake of the Panther XL game controller with the addition of a custom joystick.
The first part of the project was the custom trackball controller. Jeff continued on with the project and added a joystick to complete the remake of the PantherXL joystick (last produced in 1998). While the PantherXL was popular, the lack of USB connector meant that it didn’t work with more modern computers of the time. Jeff really liked the joystick/trackball combo and decided to make his own using a Teensy ++ and the USB Joystick functionality.
Code for the project is available on this Google Drive.
