I just tried to play Putty in WinUAE with my Competition Pro USB joystick. A SL-6603-SBK (SpeedLink) made August 2008.
It was so terrible that I almost broke it. The response was so horrible that the game was pretty much unplayable.

Got another unopened one which will stay unopened forever. Might be worth a fortune soon since everybody else broke their own in rage.

Would only recommend this to people you hate.

Will most likely do the same in the end. Although my Zipstick is still working great

Pleased to say my original competition pro from circa 1988 is still in great working order.

Just converted mine to an Amiga stick. Without auto-fire, mind you.

It totally defeats my initial purpose of owning a USB joystick. Bought it 10 years to play games in WinUAE, but ended up converting it to play on the genuine system
