WTB: Amiga Joystick to USB Adapter

I'm searching for an USB adapter to use my Amigastick on my PC. Anyone got one?

Amigakit sells a USB replica of the Competition Pro. It's slightly better than the Amiga one as it has autofire and the firebuttons each register as a different button, good for games that can use multiple firebuttons. The standard Competition Pro has four fire buttons but they all count as firebutton 1.

I can't recommend it. The well known USB lag is too annoying. Try if you can still order an adapter from this project.

The great folks at RetroZone sells an adapter. I've got two and they both work fine.
For Amiga or C64 emulation, I prefer using my old TAC-2 or Wico Command control, or Wico Ergostick, to any new stick.

If have basic soldering skills you can make an amiga <> usb adapter easily using a cheap USB gamepad off ebay.

Just solder the connections from the 9pin amiga controller to the corrosponding spots on the gamepad PCB. Put it in a project box and voila!
