Okay here's the story, I have checked through a lot of threads on here and I think I have covered all the menu's etc.

I have a couple of spectravideo Quick SHot II Joysticks attached via a USB to RS232 cable.

I cannot for the life of me get it to work. The device manager says its in Com Port 5 (which it is) and still nothing.

I have tried numerous settings so can someone PLEASE tell me where I am going wrong !!!!

Thanks in advance DB 8)

It will not work with that adapter, simply because C64 joysticks are not RS232 devices.
You can build an interface yourself by soldering a few wires to a standard USB game controller.
How you can do this, is explained here.

Thanks for the heads up and reply K.C.

I guess I'll have to use the bulky Logitech GIANT joystick......although I do have 2 joysticks so may just have a crack at your idea.

Thanks again DB :mrgreen:

I've just checked your link again and I get it. Think I'll have a look on ebay for a cheap controller OR I could use one of the old PS2 controllers I have ? ?
