The website is online again! The Competitor interfaces are also available to shipping.

to order one go to the web-site:

http://www.competitor.de/

I have one and it's pretty amazing!
Perfet for kick-off and kaillera on WinUAE but also with all the MAME games and for all the other emulators that needs old-style digital joystick!
a must-have for retrogamers! 8)

That's for a PC Gameport which are becoming rarer unfortunatley. How about this ;

I'd still recommend (cause of the steep price of the Competitor) the simple Amiga 4-Player Adapter (all credit goes to Camber for the tip), here the cheapest offer (in the uk, though): http://www.computer-cables.com/cgi/show ... pl?MCL-254

Or these auctions here:

http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... 3087951581

All of these will be connected to the parallel port of the PC, the drivers for them to work here: http://www.geocities.com/deonvdw/PPJoy.htm

:?: AFAIK The 4 Player adapter doesn't work with the PC and Winuae!

The Stelladaptor 2600 to USB Interface is pretty expensive and only for 1 joy sadly :( , I recommend competitor + usb PC-game adapter if u don't have game port and want to play with a friend on PC.
I use it since last year and it works perfectly! 8)

Install PPJoy drivers and your golden! In WinUae in input find the amiga 4 player stick and it works. You have to lett PP JOy install a HID compliant controller, it does it that itself.

Great news, Pete! Glad it did work as smoothly as I had claimed.

@ Filippo: As Pete already said, the setup routine of the PPJoy drivers is so thorough that you don't really need to configure anything. In the control panel you'll find a new entry "Parallel Port Joysticks", but they also show up as proper game controllers and within WinUAE. The sticks work both in WinUAE and outside, too (in KO 2002 the 2nd stick doesn't work under winXP, but that is a problem of the game, as we know - two real PC sticks on a Y-splitter and the gameport won't work either).

If only you looked back up the thread a bit... :)

You could simply go to google.com and search for PPJoy, but I have done that for you and here is the site (again :)):
