This is what you need:

The joystick is designed to work just like pushing a button, so the GPIO pins will see that and Retrogame will issue a keypress.

hi othermod

thank your for the reply, first off i must congratulate you on this project, it is just superb and has been very inspirational for myself getting back into electronics.

anyway from reading you reply, something clicked and rereading both tutorials, i realized i had wired the bloody thing up backward. the four pins going to the joystick and X&Y to the pi, which now makes total sense it should be the other way...which i have done and all is working wonderfully.

 

thanks again.
