    USB joystick on a real amiga 500

    Hi guys!
    Is there any way to connect a USB joystick with an Amiga?
    I tryed a really weird way, which was to connect my usb joystick to an usb-->PS2 adapter and then connect that adapter to a PS2-->9pin.
    Guess what? Didnīt work

    The only way would be to use an actual USB expansion like Subway, which adds USB ports to the Amiga. These would however only work on Workbench and not in directly booted games, so not that useful.

    You are better off continuing to use native Amiga joysticks plugged into the Amiga's joystick ports. And you can still buy new classic competition Pro joysticks, so not a problem.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
