Gravis PC GamePad

This interface could support up to four paddles or two joysticks. I have never seen a paddle controller built for a PC. This interface was known for its finicky nature, so the joystick makers used trimmers to adjust the range in which the potentiometers are moved.

There are two of these, one for each axis. When a value is written to the interface, that triggers the interface to convert the resistive load as given from the joystick to a digital pulse that will remain active proportionally to the resistive value.

The length of time measured reflects the position of the joystick. The button state can also be read at this time.

Warranty & Support

The first generation of joysticks are generally these boxy things that have a stick that require a thumb and finger or two to manipulate. There are two buttons, one for the thumb and one for the forefinger. Kraft is the best known brand of this type.

The differences are both cosmetic and functional. The Deluxe Joystick is a physical clone of the Kraft stick.

It uses a 6-pin DIN connector and early models may not have the trimmer adjustments. The computers also have two distinct ports.

IBM standard joysticks can be used in Tandy if you can make a pin adapter and connect the unused third terminal of each potentiometer to ground which also connects the buttons. The non-Deluxe Advanced Gravis GRAVIS SERIAL GAMEPAD for the CoCo, a black box with one button, does work in these ports but is reported to be quite horrible to use.

Tandy also released a pistol grip joystick for the flight simulator crowd. The resistive signal is fed into a comparator against a a voltage source which charges at a constant time.

The method is sufficiently different from IBM joysticks that some games may not work with Tandy joysticks. Buttons are handled in the same way as IBM joysticks.

Amstrad Joystick Amstad PC clones, the and Advanced Gravis GRAVIS SERIAL GAMEPAD unique in that it supported a digital joystick. The interface used keyboard scancodes, making joysticks function as if the user was using the numberpad. Some games specifically support this method and more should have had these machines not been from the U.

The Amstrad could support more traditional PC joysticks through an add-on card. Hand-Grip Joysticks By the late 80s, the boxy Kraft-style of joysticks were falling out of style. Flight Simulators, such as the series from Microsoft, were becoming increasingly popular. Joysticks increasingly looked like airplane flight sticks. These joysticks required the whole hand to manipulate and usually had a trigger button for the crook of the index finger and a second button for the thumb.

They functioned in the same way as the Kraft-style joysticks, Advanced Gravis GRAVIS SERIAL GAMEPAD some began to incorporate rapid fire switches for the buttons.
