Pinball Dreams / Fantasies Joypad support

Hi dear, EAB Community


I wanted to ask, if there are Versions/Hacks for Pinball Dreams & Pinball Fantasies to use the Joypad/Joystick.


You see, i have an old friend who always wanted to try those games,
but he can´t use the keyboard controls, because he had an accident years ago at his workplace and is since then not as "mobile" as he was before


It hurt´s my heart, honesty, because he always loved to play real pinball so much; and now he cant even stand up right for a few minutes


It would be so nice if he would be able to play those old classics, he would love it.


Thank you so much guys and please take; health is the most valuable gift.

Pinball Fantasies CD32 version uses joypad since 1992 or such.

I'll be considering adding joypad support to Pinball Dreams Galahad install as well (just checked, yay! Galahad provided the source and I have it)

Of course with an emulator, it is possible to configure any key to a joypad too.

My Amiga is 16-Bit and my old Buddy is not a computer guy at all, so WinUAE is out of the question.
Anyway, every help is much appriciated.
Thank you very much.

There are still some issues, I fixed some, but not released yet. I've zoned the beta .slave with fix for black screen lockup.

Works pretty well on real hw.
Things I noticed:
- left flipper gets stuck very rarely (twice in ~20 mins)
- the game paused once randomly without any button press or button release
- music cannot be turned off/on

already 98% playable, the pad layout is fine so thank you

It only works with a CD32 Joypad

Would be awesome if it would work with a 2 button joypad.

(Dpad = Left Flipper, Fire1= Luch Ball, Fire2= Right Flipper, DPad Up=Nudge/Tilt)

We have only a Sega Mega Drive Pad, you know.
Still, much thanks for the effort JOTD.
