IJK-egoist new joystick interface by [raxiss]

This is the right place to discuss on how to implement hardware vsync, adding a VIA or AY chipset, puting multiple roms, or how to design a new flash expansion card.

Hello all!
Let me quickly introduce you the new IJK-joystick compatible interface: IJK-egoist :D

The name was chosen because it accepts only one joystick, but it allows to select left or right one.
The design follows the principle no more "mess o' wires".
Everything is tested and works just fine!

I've already all the components in quantities enough for all mankind.
The PCB's in red and white color are ready and shipped from far-east.

I selected the fastest shipping but instead of 3-5 days they will come in 7-9 days, so I hope next weekend to be able to show you the real thing in action (and fill properly the first blank post) :).

Nice dev iss, it seems to be an interface we should have to play (of course, alone as my son prefers its phone and pc)

Oh god... now we have quite a few IJK interfaces to choose from!

One question... can anybody test if the IJK detection and joystick managing routines in Blake's 7 work? I could only test them with emulators...

Definitely, I'll check it asap! But looking in sources there should be no problem, even more - the code for right joystick is commented out - cool! :D

About the multiple choices: there will be more... ;) and this is no competition but just pushing Oric to the future :)

Very tiny...and nice builded. ;)
If a GAL chip is used, it's incredible to find the necessary energy from the VIA outputs... :shock: 8)

Games often use only one joysticks, if you add the IJK code for all games, this interface will be a revolution in the Oric world! :shock: 8)

Thanks, @kenneth! Your words are like nice spoiler for my software surprise: all games adapted by Micropuce for PASE interface (i.e. JOYSTICK ADAPTER I & II are under surgery and so far Hopper is IJK ready ;). Also you guessed correctly in other forum:
The printer connector is soldered...first. :)
Here are some pictures of the real thing IJK-egoist serial number #0000 :) :

And ... It works! Next I'll post some videos in the pauses between soldering.

It's a good idea from a usability point of view :)
