One of those new "replica" Competition Pro Joysticks arrived yesterday. Nicely packaged. Although yet to plug into the A500 (WinUAE on laptop is sooo convenient), I was surprised how much effort it takes to operate and the the loud clicks. Could be another case of 30 minutes use and then consigned to the cupboard.
Realised later, of course, that searching ebay uk site lists loads of much cheaper used joystick options which don't appear on searching ebay au default because international delivery not selected. Now wondering what other games, apart from Turrican and Swiv, I'll enjoy using it with.
