At the mo I only have two Greek sticks, one not working properly and one not working at all! :( In my room in my dad's house I might still have a couple of ancient sticks to go with my Amstrad CPC 6128 - something like a Konix Speedking and a treasured Gravis stick which back then cost a fortune (30 quid) and had to be imported from Canada! Looks just like this one offered on ebay.de:

Plenty of them, but only three are in working condition.

The best is the ACS stick (made in 1985, still going strong, full metal construction, built like a tank)

Two Tomahawk sticks (greek sticks, the case is made from heavy plastic, the stick is metallic). - one is broken

Two Starfighter sticks, almost like the TomaHawk, overall it is less rugged (one broken, one needs some soldering because the wire has been cut off)

The old PacMan - like the two above but stronger in internal construction (broken - it must be one of the few in existence that actually got broken!)

One Amiga CMS stick (the "greek stick as you call it") and one PC CMS stick. Certainly worse than the rest (plastic construction), but still perfectly good for KO.

I used to have more (like the two-button Pacman stick Nikos swears by) but I have no lost them.

I will accompany this post with pictures for Beckite's pleasure :)

We are only talking about D-Type joysticks! If you want your console controllers to count in, can I please put every single key from my old computers as well :lol: ! BTW, I have a Taiwanese console with cool pong type controllers 8) !

Sorry. I should probably edit my post and delete the sidewinder part, and include something about the stick I let women play with...

The sidewinder was only mentioned because it was the first controller I bought for my pc, just to play car-games. Kick Off 2002 didn't exist at that time. And I didn't think it was possible to get an arcade stick for pc's. I believed the only sticks for pc was like the Wingman. Which S_U_C_K_S!!!!!

If consoles will count, keys will count because I used them to control the sprites in computer games! BTW, no way you'll get my taiwanese console! You also forgot the tools you bought for a tenner!

Calling the random collection of pixels that moved on the screen of your 8088 old laptop "sprites" is an overstatement!

I know about the tools (9 euros for two sets)

Where did you find that console?

What do I have to do with a 8088 laptop! I speak about my C64, the ZX81 etc. BTW, the laptop is 80X86! 8) :lol:

The console was given to me by a guy in my work. He says he has the woody 2600 somewhere and is looking for it...
