There's - for example - the retrobit adapter having 2 red jacks. It works quite well but only recognizes 1 firebutton (if that's important for you).

I use the sinchai adapter. It works perfectly and also recognizes 2 different firebuttons. But I'm not sure if you still can buy it because this small german shop closed (maybe they still sell it on forum64.de).

Mick Gyver shows a very elegant solution using an Arduino pro here. (Something I wanted to build myself too in 2017 but never did, because of - you know - time ).

Generally it works quite well and there's more threads here on the board (use search) and offers on ebay.

Edit: You could check Forum64. AFAIK Sinchai himself regretably is not in best shape and can't manage the shop anymore, but the forum64 user "Bobbel" took over his shop (pays him share) and runs Restore-Store.de which seems to have quite a lot C64 and Amiga (basic) parts at fair prices (didn't know the shop too, until I checked it right now).

If you want quality (and nearly no Input Lag) you should buy the raphnet adapter. It's works with the most 9-Pin sticks and Sega pads/sticks.

I've bought an usb-mouse-to-amiga converter from electronica4u and it works very well.

From the video in the item description this seems to work fine too (although strangely it is recognized as mouse and not as gamepad/joystick in windows) and seems to recognize 2 fire buttons (which is good if you ever want to use that). If I read it correctly it also allows to use the Amiga Tank mouse on the PC which IMHO is senseless but funny

Looks like they are producing high quality adapters with (sometimes) added extra features.

PS: Tune your Amiga Tank with a (pricey) optical lazer upgrade and you have a very cool multi-system mouse

I have a Tom Rev2 from Pawel Burdzy. Works fine. But be aware that there is nearly no support if you want to update the firmware. His strange software doesn't work on Windows 10 and it seems he doesn't care enough to change that.

He is selling two versions. A one Port and a two port version. Configuration is possible via e4youAdaptersConfigurator, a firmwareupdate via e4you_Updater.
You can find downloadlinks for both programs in the manual here: https://gurce.net/c64mini/_media/ret...b9_-manual.pdf

I bought yesterday one RetroFun! Adapter (one Port version) for 21,94 EUR (incl. shipping). The price-perfomance ratio convinced me.

Look at the productvideo here:

You can find the shop of the ebayseller electronika4you here:

Today the RetroFun Adapter arrived. It took only 16 Days from the Netherlands to Germany... ;-)

-The RetroFun Adapter runs fine with WinVice.

-The RetroFun Adapter runs fine with WinUAE as long as it is used without a virtual graficcard (e.g. uaegfx).

If a virtual graficcard is used in WinUAE the Joystick works, but the game then runs veeeeery slow with heavy stuttering. Unplayable. Is there a timing problem????

Any ideas how to fix that problem?

Cheers
Sid
