Ah. Thanks. A tad expensive though; I was thinking about getting me 4 such adapters. Not happening for that price... What would be the search-string for eBeay? I didn't find anything...

This trinket is unique, that's why it's expensive. I am unaware of anything else that lets you plug an Amiga joystick into a USB port. Panayotis bought it and it works perfectly. The Sensible Soccer boys are selling Amiga joystick adapters but you need a parallel port for them, just mentioning it in case you have an old PC lying around.

What Alkis said.

If I had the time, I'd get into producing these things myself. There's a definite gap in the market.

Still, for now, grab one of these's beauties for 19 dolla. It love you long time.

21 U.S. dollars = nearly £13

€18 on that site too, and $20

I guess it's down to postage.. $14 from retroUSB USA, or £2 from amigakit.co.uk.

A clear winner surely!!

Great find Alkis! :D

I'm probably going to a buy a load ;)
