Amiga to PC joystick adapter needed

I need one of those adapters to connect my old Amiga/C64 joysticks to PC game-port.

I would be gratefull if somebody here could direct me to a web-site where those can be bought. A quite while ago, I saw on some www-pages people selling them, but I lost the links and all those I find on Google now have only guide how to make this adapter.


And I also wonder, all you people who happend to have this adapter, does it really work? Can I use it in both Amiga/C64 emulation AND real PC-games? What about buttons?
On 8/16-bit computers, both buttons have ONE function, while on PC every button has its own function. How does the joystick actually act when connected to PC?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know where to buy an adapter.
But I built this adapter on my own two times, and it's great:

Adapter

It can me used for ALL games/emulators: c64, amiga, pc etc. I think it costs 6-7 EUR.

That's not true. E.g. remember the blue silver competition pro. It has 2x2=4 buttons with two functions. Search in the forum, there're amiga games with 2 button support...

The thing is, most 2 button Amiga/C64 joysticks were wired for only ONE function (all 2 buttons were the same).
The aforementioned silver+blue competition Pro has 4 buttons, 1 for autofire, 1 for slowmotion, and the other two do the same.

if you want multibutton action, get yourself a Sega Genesis/Megadrive 6-button Joypad, and a suitable adapter. This will work treats (andwith this adapter you can use your old Amiga joysticks too)

You can also connect an Amiga Joy on the LPT Port, it´s much easier to build this one

But this is only suitable for ONE Joystick ..... if you want to connect two, just refer to the Adapter mentioned above

What's the compatibility like on this? ie, emulators only, or all games?

Should be usable in every Windows App/Game you have

Go to this site for a Driver -> http://www.geocities.com/deonvdw/PPJoy.htm
