I remember some ranting going on regarding peripheral items and how they
were read with SWCHA.  Anyone know how the booster grip adaptor works?
I've never opened mine up.

The joystick plugs into the booster grip adaptor plug, which basically has extra pins that a normal atari joystick does not have and the signals from the booster grip go through these extra pins and the atari joystick signals are sent through the pass-through pins in the plug. The extra button on the booster grip is the same as the extra button on a colecovision controller. So if you wanted to play a booster grip game without the booster grip, just plug your Colecovision controller in and start playing. :-) My booster grip had the plug busted into pieces, so my friend and I rewired it into a spare genesis extension cable I had lying around. Works great!
