That's my old age my friend. I thought of Fantasies, not Dreams. Sorry about that!

Right... now that you mention it, I might have used an emulator + a remapping application to do that... I remapped the joystick to use for the spring launcher as well, to get the right feeling when releasing the ball.

Probably the connector is too big ... they couldnt find standard joystick connectors without the screws at sides...

If that adapter really works then I wonder why Amigakit does not give the option to add one of those...instead of letting people think it does not work = loosing sales

It looks like an oversized TAC-2. Why not just make it the same size as the TAC-2? It was an exceptional stick back then.

Moulded Connectors (with cable) are very hard to get hold of these days.
Don't know where we could get hold of those extension cables, maybe they are old stock as they are pre moulded.

After feedback from some customers we have added two product options on
Arcade Evolution Amiga/C64 Joystick:

- Joystick shaft on left hand side and fire buttons on right
- Joystick shaft on right hand side and fire buttons on left

Oh, it's a shame this doesn't work on A600s. Which is quite a popular machine nowadays.
You should try to find a solution for this.

Something like this would probably work:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-Joys...item51b7f0e1db
(Not an endorsement, just a quick search on e-bay for "joystick extension cable")

I'm guessing that the problem is that they don't appear to be available new in quantity for Amigakit to be able to offer it as an option.
(Reading above, the one Fitsteve found on ebay-UK looks better)
