Amiga arcade style controller - with CD32 interface

Been having a lot of fun with this new controller, using Mounty's interface board, combined with proper arcade buttons, even in my ramshackle enclosure it really does work well!

Detailed to some extent in this blog post right here:

Thanks Higgy!

Couple of weird things I noticed:

Robocod AGA (WHDload) doesn't work at all with this controller! At least no fire button input is detected to start the game, I'm sure it worked with the pad.

AmiMasterGear, could never get the second button input to work, either with the CD32 pad or the sega pads, no matter what options were used.

With the joystick this now works perfectly, not sure if it has something to do with microswitches making a better contact than the carbon pads of a joypad.
