    For sale are kits for building a two button joystick adapter for the Commodore 64 and 128 machines. You can use it with my KTRL CD32+ gamepad or any other two button joystick / gamepad that supports the C64.

    How it works
    Several games on the C64 have a second action mapped to the spacebar on the keyboard. In most of these games, you can also press the button on a joystick in port 1 for the same action. This adapter maps button 2 of a joystick/gamepad in port 2 to button 1 of port 1 resulting in two button support for those games. The adapter has a switch so you can disable the two button feature and get normal 1 button controls without the need to disconnect and reconnect the adapter and joysticks.

    Full kit (no cover/sticker): 9
    Full kit including cover and sticker: 12

    Shipping and payment
    Airmail shipping (no tracking) to Europe is 2.40 for one kit, 3.40 for two kits.
    Airmail shipping (no tracking) to rest of the world is 3.60 for one kit and 7.20 for two kits.
    If you buy a kit for the KTRL CD32+ I can ship this adapter for no extra cost.

    Note: Payment via PayPal as family/friend or add 4% to the total cost.

    Am I understanding how this works correctly?
    a- With a two button (or more) joystick plugged into port 2, I can play with that joystick and use button 1 and 2?
    b- With a one button joystick in port 2, and a one button joystick plugged into port 1, I can play with the joystick plugged into port 2, use its button as the regular fire button and the button on the joystick plugged into port 1 as the secondary button?
    c- Can this be daisy chained with a joystick switcher such as http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php...tick-Switchers ?
    Thanks.

    a- Yes, in most games that otherwise has a secondary action button set to SPACE on the keyboard.
    b- Yes if you want, but you don't need the adapter for that scenario. The fire2 of the joystick in port two is wired to port1/fire1 and port1/fire1 to nothing if the switch is in one position, in the other position the connections are straight through.
    c- It might, it should, at least to some extent, with the switch in one position the connections are straight through.

    This is exactly what I am looking for! Great!
    I'm interested in a full kit with cover and stickers.
    Also looked at your controller and it looks very nice, too. If possible I would add this to my order.

    I will sent a PM immediately.
