Joystick simulator dongle for hardware software ( Amiga )

Test dongle for Systest ( amiga ) from Keir Fraser ( download ).

 

Why ?

I’m repairing lots of Amiga machines, and my (original) joystick connectors where failing after they have been swapped between all those machines. So that’s why I designed this dongle ( and ofcourse i’m a bit lazy to handle the joystick each time 🙂 )

How does it works

This dongle simulates Up, Right, Down, Left, Button1, Button2, Button3.
There is an interval of approx. 1 second between the simulated actions of the “joystick”.
