I see it's billed as Sega Mega Drive. Does it still work for Amiga-sticks?

Yes, the circuitry is similar enough to work.

I have one and use it for online KO2.

just bought one to test it. via amazon, it should arrive in 2 days, I let you know my feedback asap.
at home I use the PPJoy (parallel port) and a very good German USB (2 game ports) adaptor, that unluckily is not produced any more

tested:
this adaptor is perfect to play KO2 on PC, it has no input latency, it provides 2 players input using just one USB port.
it is well recognised by both KOOL and WinUAE , both the gameports of course. the price is very good. Using Amazon I received it in less than 2 days.
I made a further comparison with PPJoy, I can say that is is as fast as PPJoy: you can trash your parallel port then as we don't need a parallel port any more :D finally!

Thanks for the review. I ordered one as well. Although I am perfectly happy with my 30cm PC joystick, it's not exactly portable! This adapter is perfect for trips.
