Joysticks

Thanks for the reply ...

Yup, saw that. But I have actually phoned them already and they have none left and don't know where to get any more. They even commented that it was a good seller and they would like more.

Just worried that the set I have know will break. Which has been known when playing Sensi ...

What Joysticks do everybody else use ????

It just seems that they are in finite supply at the moment - and slowly drying up.

I use the Python ones too, but they tend to break after some time...

I'll try and find another source, but I wish more Amiga games supported keyboard controls, like the Spectrum!

hello.

well browsing around the web-shops i saw this at Epic:

Epic - Quikshot

It looks like the QuikShot Python ..

I use the classic black (with yellow buttons) Competition Pro joysticks, have worked for years....

Thanks Kris,

Got in touch and they only have a couple of pre-owned ones.

Might take them if I can't find any new ones.

Thanks again

Definitely...

I'd recommend the one with the yellow buttons (ZipStik?) like the Competition Pro.

They have real solid steel shaft which were nearly impossible to break with bare hands even if you put all your might into it.

They last for years and years and years

That is a hell of a joystick... I bought 2 of them about 10/12 years ago and they're still in perfect working order after 8 years of Sensi

I have located 15 joysticks in Germany.

But ... my quest continues ....

If anybody knows where I can find any Python Quickshot 1m joysticks please let me know.

Thanks for the feedback.
