I now have two working old school Slik Stik joysticks which I want to attach to TheC64 Maxi. I see some premade interfaces, and also the zero delay boards that are offered everywhere. However, I am beginning to believe that simply buying a Mini to acquire a 2nd joystick, then modding both TheC64 sticks to accommodate a db9 connector might be the simplest, and least expensive way forward, especially I then re-sell the MINI. I had hoped to simply buy a broken MINI joystick for cheap, but haven’t been able to find one. Any thoughts on why I would not want to go this route?
PS: I am in the US. Also, I am fully capable of handling any technical challenges.
