I have seen schematics to plug 9pin joysticks into the PC joystick port. Can't remember the URLs, but I mentioned them in another thread awhile ago...

A German seller on Ebay has been regularly selling C64-Amiga-PC joystick adapters:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....category=26791

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....tem=2747581268


He has 100% feedback and all the buyers seem to be happy with their purchases. Surprisingly, the price of the adapter seems to be reasonable too.

@Mozzy
I hadn't look at the site, but everyone was talking about schematics and making a joystick adapter (as opposed to buying one).

I gather that the German guy on Ebay runs that site then?!
If so, it's far cheaper buying the adapter on Ebay (35 EUR on that web site vs 11 EUR using the buy it now option on Ebay).

its great just spend 10 mins (if that) soldering it together, download the ppjoy drivers and your away with 2 8 bit joystick ports that you can use in any emu/game you choose.

Even the proper amiga 2 player adaptor will work guys the one's built for games that supported the extra players!
