Ive been playing kick off 2 in emulation for a while now and its getting to me the lack of dexterity a pad allows in kick off.Ill have my amiga in the coming week thank god and have found a few sources for comp pro sticks,i can hardly wait.Are there any other poor players out there suffering the horror of joypad kick off?

I used to Beta Test UKO/KO2002 with one and it was horrible <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif"> Since then I got my Joystick Interface built so the gamepad is never used now, unless I get anyone round for a 2 player game.

I'm planning to make a gameport adapter to support 2 "proper" joysticks on a PC.

Here's one I found on ebay. (I'm not bidding though, gonna build my own !)

Or it looks like you can buy directly from the website for 33 EUR :

Hey that looks good !! May be worth our less techie members having a look to save making their own. I'd have bought one at that price possibly <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

I'm planning on making myself something like this for using on both PC and Amiga ;

You can get 'proper' Arcade parts & stuff from http://www.happcontrols.com as well <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

they seem quite expensive... but the idea of making your own stick is interesting...

Taking into account the parts needed it is expensive.

well you need a pc sidewinder gamepad, a stick from happ controls, one or more buttons from happ controls, some materials to make a base for the stick.

and it takes a whole lot of time... no doubt it's fun most of it... certainly the thought of a self made joystíck is nice....

I'm getting myMS Sidewinder today from a Second HandShop. Yeah it's 12quid but if you want the best you gotta pay <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> That's the first thing i've bought for the project. I'm currently waiting for a UK Cataligue for HappControls, then i'll order the Stick and buttons <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">
