I got mine for £9.99 from: http://www.core-digital.co.uk/product_i ... cts_id=618

Slight word of warning - I've had to send mine back because they've packed up twice!! Maybe that was just bad luck ? But don't seem as robust as the originals...

Gaz, is postage free?
Any hassles from the co in getting exchanges?
1 year warranty?

nuts...your best bet Sid is to buy a USB Competition Pro. Man, you'r so close to getting online!

I just played Alkis..and it cost me nothing in Air Fair (I'l let Alkis post about his experiences though before we play)

Other than...he had a poor Ping. About 80 it was, yet...

The game never stopped for LAG
The game never froze
It was a perfect FPS of 50FPS (which is 100% perfect - you cant get any better)

SIIIIIIIIIIIIDD!!

I think your Laptop has a parrallel port! After checking a Vaio website it says it does.

Could you do me a favour and take a picture of the back of your computer?

Postage free :)
Exchange no problem :) (although they said I'd used excessive force last time - who me!?)
2 yr manufacturers guarantee, I believe! :)

I don't know what connections the Vaio has, or what they look like, hence why I provided the link :oops:

There are not many players in the chat yet, join it to meet friends in first priority. Online-gaming is only a cool addition... So: no Fear! ;) Hope to see you soon...

I can't!

Error says:
"Unable to connect: java.lang.NullPointerException "

p.s. I don't have any printer/parrelel ports on my laptop.

Only the monitor one (VGA?), USB, ethernet, and Sony memory card reader. There seems to be a blank thin slot too, with a flap (maybe for expansion or something else?) and its hollow.

USB joystick it is I think!
