It's available with or without casing. Has anybody heard or used this product?

I use this adapter, as does my brother and some others I know. It works perfectly.

I know this company and I think this will work well.

Personally I use this one for swos: monsterjoysticks.com/retro-gaming-joysti...-retro-joystick-kits

Advantage is that you can convert the kit for righ-handed play. (Most other Arcade Joysticks are for left-handed)

Some good looking sticks there for sure. Cheers!

I am left-handed. :-) Looking to hook up a Powerplay Cruiser joystick as I'm finding a PS1 controller impossible for diving headers. :-)

Then this Adapter should work for you. Looks a little bit like the Competition Pro with crazy colours. Never saw this one back in the 80s in Germany. These sticks are playable left- and right handed.

As far as I understand, it would work with normal USB mouse on Amiga not gamepad.

This adapter is the only one I know which will probably do what you want.

Though I have not tested it.

Thanks mate, I've finally bought this one: retro.7-bit.pl/?lang=en&go=projekty&name=RYSMKII at this shop www.amedia-computer.com/en/joystickjoypa...usb-db9-adapter.html
I think it is the third version of the model and it will work. anyway, readint instruction manual, I've read that it needs to be the amiga computer off when connect it, and turn it on later. Humm, maybe it is a problem in sensidays, not sure. Maybe your option was better, humm, argh.

I will tell you when I test it on MIST, no amiga computer available
Thanks!

Hey Gatifun, this adapter looks pretty similar to the ebay one. Maybe the same with another branding.

If you have to shutdown Amiga when connecting this adapter (couldn't find out if that's needed for both adapters) it will be a show stopper for Sensi Days.

I'm looking forward to hear from your experiences. Good luck.

List updated.

I've done some researches: The adapter i mentioned 2 posts before seems to be outdated and is no longer available. It was named Tom. Now Jerry seems to be the actual one. Here you can connect Mouse or Joystick. (Mouse has to support PS/2 mode).

www.ebay.com/itm/231881879216?hash=item3...0:g:7H0AAOSwDOlhJg0M

There are also some YT Videos bout these adapters out there. IMHO Plug and Play is only for the devices but not for the adapter itself.
