My last thread seemed to run a little dry. Please can I ask the question:

"What is the best option for using TWO joysticks with CCS64?"

(Win 2000, CCS64 3.0 Beta 1.5)

Thanks.

That's a vague question! The best option for 2 joysticks is using 2 joysticks. I prefer old Atari-type digital joysticks, but PC gamepads work well for many types of games too. Analog joysticks don't really work well, except for a few genres, like flight sims.

I've read that two USBs don't work well together. I once read about a parallel 2-joystick adapter but I can't find it anymore and I don't know whether it would work with CCS64.
I've only got one PC joystick port (on my sound card) and I don't think analog joysticks really have the right 'feel' for digital joystick gaming anyway.

So I wondered what setup someone who is enjoying 2-joystick C64 gaming with CCS64 might have.

(OS = W2K, CCS64 = v3)

I use a parallel Y adapter for C64 digital joysticks. Look up PPJoy and check what they recommend for 2 digital joysticks (Amiga 4 Player works for 2 C64 joysticks). The very simple schematics are incuded there. PPJoy is a good driver that works well with CCS64.
