Anybody got a link on where to find new joysticks or joypads for the Atari ST ?
I have found for instance https://www.amiga-shop.net/Amiga-Hardwa ... ::694.html
but I am rather interested by joypads, as the games I play at the moment (for ex. Silmarils Targhan) require quite exact diagonal selection.
Also, as far as I remember it should be possible to use a Megadrive Joypad on the ST ?
Diagonals is why I prefer joystics!
Mega drive pads won't work on the ST, but making the necessary changes should be simple. Master system pads work out of the box. You could also use playstation 2 pads with an easy to make adapter (I've made one with Arduino).
Also take a look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zWYLBDjP3c&t=35s
Anyway, the Atari style joystick is the simplest possible control device you could make.
There is a company that makes Arcade style joystics that would work with an Atari, but they seem a bit on the expensive side. That's not the main problem though (for me at least), they have the stick on the left side! https://monsterjoysticks.com/plywood-ba ... cherry-red
You can also find Atari joystick clones on Aliexpress.
