Don't ever think about connecting amiga joystick/mouse to RS-232 port!

Good site:

Think about this one:

Schematics about what?
Amiga joy/mouse connector fits in RS-232 port on pc side.
"Joe User" might just try to check if it works ... without any schematics.

Hey mangemani,

Not too sure as I don't have a Competetion Pro Joystick myself...

You may need to install drivers for it to be recognised by Windows XP... Hopefully it will be plug and play, if not then installing drivers isn't too difficult really. Once this is recognised by Windows XP, WinUAE will automatically see the joystick

Competition Pro USB does not need any extra drivers.

ok,i got the stick now,but im a bit confused here,i dont know if there is something wrong with the stick or my computer,but when i play SWOS for example and i steer left with the stick,it will take up to ½-1 sec before the player goes left,i i press the button the player will shoot ½-1 sec after i pressed the button...perhaps i just imagine this.

That sounds pretty strange about the lag in response, have you tried it with other games in WinUAE? I've been using a Playstation controller with a USB converter on the end in my PC for a couple of years and it works fine, no lag at all in any emulators.

I use Xbox controllers via a USB adapter also. No issues what-so-ever

The micro switches in the new Competition Pro are not the best. I exchanged them with the ones from my old amiga Competition Pro and the stick works perfect for me.

Happy

hi guys,

i've been playing swos97 for quite some time now with a speed link comp. pro-usb joystick. having wanted to go back to the good, old days i've just bought a couple of wico's lovely red ball-joysticks together with a usb-converter.

as it turns out winaue can't recognize these wonders when having them plugged in + having installed the converter.

i can choose the usb converter in "game & i/o ports" under "serial port" (com7) but i can't find it - or the joystick - (as i'm used to finding the comp. pro usb) under "mouse/joystick ports".

i've been trying different versions of winuae - latest version 1.4.2a.

not even the best wank in the word can compeed with a game of swos with a working red ball connected, so please help me out here, guys. it'd be most highly appreciated. THANK YOU!
