||USB adapter for input devices: Tom and Tom+|
On ebay the British shop electronika4you-uk offers adapters which can connect USB input devices (mouse, joystick or keyboard) to the joystick port of a Commodore or Atari computer. It is not required any additional drivers on PC.
The adapter can emulate all seven buttons of the CD32 joypad. Up to ten buttons or keys of a connected USB device can be configured to your needs - e.g. with a auto-fire function for button 1 or 2 of an Atari joystick. Several USB devices can be simultaneously connected in order to switch between mouse and joystick without removing the devices.
Two different versions of the adapter are offered: Tom occupies one joystick port and provides one USB port, while Tom+ additionally loops through the original joystick port and thus makes it possible to use the Atari joystick and an USB mouse simultaneously.
In our German comment area an user has shared his experiences with these adapters. (cg) (Translation: dr)
