@portarinos

9pin game port on the Amiga is parallel bus, the 9 pin serial port (com port) is not.
Looks the same but is not the same.

I would want an adapter USB to Amiga. Being able to use a Logitech stick would be great. I know what your thinking, it works now. NO, not really it will move, however there is no way to "center the stick"! With no trim on a USB stick your plane is always going to pull one way or the other. Solve that and your golden.

For those who bought the new black version of the USB joystick adapter (Vador), I've made a new programming software that permits to change the current controller without unplugging it. It's called Mr.Switcher and can be downloaded from our download section at https://www.retronicdesign.com/en/download
