Question Best USB Joypad for WinUAE

Need a new joypad/joystick to use with WinuAE, since the replacement motherboard of my PC doesn't come with a game port, I have been in a bit of a dilemma. Do I get another sound card which has one 'n' use my original joypad or do I use USB and will it work sufficiently through USB or will there be too much lag

If anyone has any suggestions to the best joypad/joystick to use and the best setup would be greatly appreciated

I have a Gamepad to USB adapter.

Should be able to get it cheaper than this seller though.

Since you used a joypad before, I would say you should go for a Logitech Rumblepad 2 or something similar. It is quite cheap and last quite long (mine is over three years old now ). Don't worry about lags via USB (only my beloved Competition Pro USB has them because of poor microswitches ).

No probs. Hope it does the job (I also have a PS2 to USB cable and PS2 pad - they are the best IMO).

Cheers DH It's a nice joypad for emulation in general. When you got it, tell me how you like it
