Microswitched joystick

Hey all, does anyone know where to get a USB microswitched joystick in the States for use with WinUAE? It's just not the same without a proper clacky-clacky noise when playing.

Cheers Gordon. I can't stand having the buttons on the front of the stick though. Is there any that have the buttons on the right of the stick? I had one like that back in the day (can't remember the name of it now). I know we're heading into arcade stick territory now (big bucks).

I was looking at the stella USB converter and it was around $40.00. I have a sega 6 button controller, and two wico ergonomic controllers.

The wicos are excellent. Although, the metal joystick on one of them snapped. I had to go to a machine shop and get them to make a replacement. In the meantime, I use my logitech rumblepad 2. Once you mess with the deadzone and sensitivity settings, it works really well. I'm sort of off on a tangent, because it looks like Anna wants just a simple atari/usb joystick. Like this:

Thanks all, as I mentioned before, I don't like having the buttons in front of the joystick, I want them off to the right (like in an arcade). This is the joystick I had back in the day (http://www.richardlagendijk.nl/cip/j...hot_qs-128f/en). I actually picked up a used one at a car boot sale a few years ago, but couldn't figure out how to connect it to my PC. That adapter should do the trick! Thanks BigHyorgi!

No problemo. I checked out your link. Spectravideo had their own computers, as well.

A local computer game/video rental store had one for sale. This was in 1983. It had a slot for Colecovision cartridges, and had a built in joystick. I had an atari 400 at the time, so I wasn't interested.
