What are my Joystick options for stock QL?

Postby SinclairSociety » Sun Mar 17, 2019 5:22 am

I own many Atari or Atari compatible. I see the QL ports for joysticks are unique. Will I need some adapter to make a joystick work with my future QL?

Hi TJ,

QL to Atari Joystick (DB9) can be purchased on ebay.

I have the parts to make some adapters, whiut I have been a little busy at present.

I will see if I can get the adapters made.


Regards,

Derek

Can you provide a link ?
I have never seen any for sale on ebay - only serial to DB9 adaptors. And the BT connector is different, so it would not work for joystick port.
