Quick joystick question
« on: March 01, 2005, 08:39:16 PM »
Hi,

Can I use a regular DB9 serial port y-splitter as an Amiga mouse/joystick splitter?  Or is the wiring different somehow?

Hmm, bummer.  I guess I'll have to hack apart some Genesis extension cables or something.

Yeah, I've seen several online, but I'm in the US, and it's not really worthwhile for me to order from Europe for something like that.  Thanks for the link, though.
