I cant remember seeing those Wico joysticks in England, i had the TAC 2
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TAC-2. Your Wico looks pretty good, and comfy too

I also went through heaps of joysticks, the ones with the plastic shafts and microswitches always broke off, useless crap. They were only good for FA 18 Interceptor flight sim becasue of the freedom of movement you get.

Smile Amiga forever

Yes, BEST computer ever release, for it's time.

My A500 was still alive until 2007, modified onto a PC case, but working, SCSI 125MBy HDD included (5.25 Micropolis one)... PS blow, then let it go....

I had to get a PC in 1994 for work reasons, but me and my son always went back to Amiga, it was so much the 'Computer'.



Still have my WorkBench and Fish disk collection, cannot bear to get rid of those, so many good memories.

I was tempted to get one of these GP2X Wiz MAME/Amiga/Console Emulator
I'm pretty sure i still have my A500 kicking about somewhere.
I have a GP2X Wiz and had a bit of fun playing some old Amiga and MAME classics on it before i lost the power chord.
Has been sitting in front of my pc monitor ever since.
The media capabilities were not too bad as well.

I have a GP2X, the emulation isn't bad, I prefer it on PC.

I still have all but my very first Amiga - traded my trusty A2000HD in for an A1200 which I still have (though I regret the trade). My A4000 still works and I have a CD32 and an A1000 gathering dust in the garage - both working, and I have a busted A2000 which I obtained as a freebie from the Sydney Amiga Users Group (yes, they're still alive) which is in nowhere the condition that my original A2000 was.

The TAC2 and Epyx joysticks were the best and most response joysticks IMO, but the TAC2's fire buttons kept getting stuck and the Epyx was epic... until my little brother threw it on the ground one too many times in disgust every time he lost a game. Super glue can only do so much.
