I had two.. they both broke in one week and I used them normally.. they're very bad quality.

I got an adapter on eBay later on allowing me to use real Amiga joysticks.. much better.

We have three here. :P

One works, one's stuck on autofire (so anybody who tries to... say... play Rick Dangerous is screwed), and one can't go right.

I should probably look into getting a new one or something. :P

I've got two. As I'm left-handed I can't use one of them because the fire button I would use is very unreliable, so anyone else who wants to use it can. The other one works perfectly though.

My XJ500 is amazing.

@laffer

Yeah where'd you find that? Rather, how'd you find that? I'm intrigued, as I currently do not have my Catweasel hooked up with my computer.

Me neither. I don't understand why so many people rave about them. I bought one of the new USB ones and sold it within the same week. There's virtually no give in the stick. Are you supposed lube them up with KY Jelly or something?

In yonder olden days I played with a Quickshot Python, a few Cruisers, and a transparent Crystal something-or-other. They were all far superior IMO. I wish someone would make a USB version of one of these. You can't buy basic joysticks anymore - your choices are either one with 50 buttons and a dozen throttles and modifiers or a joypad.

Question: Is there a BBOAH equivalent for Amiga Joysticks?

You can use it with Amiga 4-player parallel port adapter (5,90 Euro at Vesalia). Just search for ppjoy here on eab, you'll find a few threads about it.

Aye Quickshot joysticks made some of my favourites QS-138F was probably my fave which I still use to this day on the miggy. I remember buying a clear cased comp pro in 1993 and didn't use it after a few goes, my arm felt like dropping off with an hours use!

Same with the Zipsticks too - those were like tugging on a piece of over well done steak!

I had a zipstick. It was ok but there were no "clicky" microswitches, then the switches just gave up and it was useless. I thought it was crap, my fave was my pink and green cruiser! they took some RIGHT hammer. best joystick in my eyes
