Ok apparently the USB Comp Pros are rubbish, however if you can get either a USB adaptor or a parrallel port adaptor (which I got made by a greek) then all you need is a free ppjoy driver (just install it under Windows 98/xp and configure...dead simple even I did it without hassle)

And you can use any amiga stick if you have one.

Alternatively post in the bench asking if anyone has a PC Greek Stick to sell, they are pretty good and work on the pc. I have one but its the only one I have otherwise I would send it.

Where are you based?

I wish I still had my bug stick, does anybody remember that one?
It was small black and looked like a bug sat in your hand, small stick on the top and two fire buttons on the front like eyes.
I could do some really good shots with that stick.

Thanks for everybodys help, will have to try and sort out a stick when i come back. Off to Norway for 2 weeks.

For me the best joystick is the konix speedking. The ergonomy is amazing, you can play really fast without loosing your ball-controls or pass and make some easy big looping shoots. I don"t know how you can play ko2 without one. I should go to the next world ko2 cup to show you ;)

It´s definately the good old comp pro that offers the best feeling and control for the gameplay of PM.

Thanks, found 3m extension leads, great.
Just relaised, problem with Player Manager or KO2 is when you want to make substitutions you need to be near the Keyboard!

Is there a wireless RF contracption to use with the Amiga tho??

well you can keep your amiga close and connect to the monitor/TV with a Wireless Video/TV Link:
