Before you contribute too much to this thread, I am considering leaving things as they are, because I think the keyboard/mouse is actually the best controller out there. I only hinted at the possibility of a joypad for the Amiga as keys are used by certain games, but I think I'll cross those games when I come to them.

Hmmm... I'm just trying to imagine using the keyboard to play SWOS or Speedball 2 (shudders).

I was never any good at SB2, even with a joystick back in the day. And I don't play "soccer".

I have this besides me with a USB adaptor (Controller Super 8+, i bought it around 40 euros but it's not so good quality as the Tomahawk, i think they don't do it anymore)



This on my A500 (Tomahawk)


And this for general use (Logitech F710)


I have to say Tomahawk is the best joystick. It feels like arcade sticks of the past, and it has been used for 25 years and still going strong.
If you have to use a gamepad i recommend F710, it's great but a bit expensive, if i remember well it cost around 50 euros. From the first moment you touch it you understand it's a very high quality gamepad.

1. Do they still sell retro joysticks with Atari connectors? (as used on the Amiga)
2. If so, is there such a thing as a USB adapter for them?

Just out of curiosity, mind.

They do. But aside from the CP Retro there are a only few pads like the crappy Boomerang. OK, there is this one from Amigakit but i don't know the quality. This adapter would work fine.

I'm just wondering how I'm supposed to play a game like Psygnosis' Walker, which requires both mouse and joypad/keyboard, at the same time? Or is there an easier way to play it?

Oh, what the hell, just ordered the Buffalo again, cos I liked it so much before.

In any case, old Amiga joysticks are NOT an option for me, as I just remembered that their reliable microswitches are noisy as hell, and I'm in shared accommodation, so the clickety-clackity would disturb the other residents.

EDIT: Cancelled the Buffalo order. Fickle mind.

The only way to play Walker is with mouse and keyboard.
I don't even know why they offered the option to use a joystick.
