DeltaShadow: 8-Button-Kempston-Compatible Joystick

Postby cha05e90 » Thu Jan 07, 2021 7:35 am

Howdy!

I suppose I'm not the only one who purchased this excellent game. In the first rush I tried to play it with a usual Atari/Kempston-compatible "5-Button-Joystick" (a modded Sinclair SJS-2 to be more precise...) - but learned that this it's more or less impossible with this device.

The ominous joystick mentioned in the title seems to be the one needed. I never heard of such a device! Can someone give me a hint where to look for something like that? Even the new ZX Next ProPads from Active Consult only show up to "6 Buttons"...

Thanks!

I use a 8bitDo genesis style wireless gamepad, I set it as MD pad 1 on Zx Next Option.
So I can play with 3 different buttons (A, B, C).

Whilst the BT version is reported as working, it is also reported to have significantly increased lag. Get the 2.4GHz non-BT version. You can still find it on EBay (seems Amazon no longer carries it in the UK).
