Thanks Megavolt85 for the firmware. I am waiting for the arrival of the other components to put it to the test.

Today the STM and the 25PE16 have arrived.

Hey. I soldered everything. In general is a great adapter. I have only two problems with it. Adapter don't recognise memory chip. I soldered everything good. In memory card manager there is no VMU. Mice, psx, ps2 works great. I have two unofficial saturn controllers. One works, other not.

Thanks for fast answer! I solved vmu problem in other way. Speud's VMU Tool was seeing all memory cards. I formatted them without problem. Now only salturn controller is a problem. I noticed now, during testing that only D-pad works on both of saturn unofficial pads (one is retrobit controller). I will check connections.

EDIT

VMU problem not solved. All vmu's are visible when I'm using mice in VMU TOOL only. With ps2 pad not working. Tomorrow I will flash new firmware


EDIT2

OK with new firmware VMU works great. Now I must check saturn connector. Probably it has some loose.

saturn use 5V power, all tested controllers fine work with 3.3v, maybe your controller requery full power
connect power pin to 5V

it is very easy to connect like a regular D-INPUT controller
making VMU read / write very easy too
but adding support for vibration will be more difficult
