I saw in several places that the joystick competition pro is compatible with TheC64 mini... so, I ordered one and after connecting it it's impossible to make it work properly...
The problem is with the buttons assignement... there is any button that works as a "fire" button, so I'm unable to select a game, enter the menus, etc...
I'm using the latest firmware version... any idea about this problem?
*** IGNORE THIS, APPARENTLY I WAS WRONG *** I am afraid the Competition Pro only works once you are inside a Game. To get through the menus you still need the included joystick because especially the Main Menu button is not mapped to any button on the Competition Pro at all. Sorry.

sh#*#t ;-) Ok, so i have to modify the gamecontrollerdb Here is the entry: 030000000b0400003365000000010000,Speed-Link Competition Pro,a:b1,b:b5,back:b3,lefttrigger:b0,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,righttrigger:b4,start:b2,x:b6,y:b7,platform:Linux,
but I don't understand all of the (underlined) entrys, since the joystick only has 4 buttons and 4 directions.These are 10 entrys
edit: this configuration is only for the old CP USB.
The configuration for the new CP extra 20th anniversary looks like this:
03000000790000001c18000011010000,SPEEDLINK COMPETITION PRO Game Controller for Android,a:b0,back:b1,lefttrigger:b3,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,start:b4,platform:Linux,
I tried to put start on b3 and lefttrigger on b4, but then the menu pops up when you press fire. Not funny
with try and error i managed to disable the menu button completely (after some unsuccessful tries like above to enable the menu on another button).
button mapping is now like this: a:b0,back:b1,lefttrigger:b3,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,start:b2,

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

eBUG: Hmm how about the C64 makers include some Pascal software and other creative software in addition to games in the carousel ? :-D

Head Over Heals: Hi Peeps. I am a 45 year old Australian C64 Mini addict, and I have been using/modding the mini for the last four weeks. I have transferred this awesome little computer to a custom made, hard wood box and fitted a USB - UART adapter & dual DP9 joy ports.
