Hacking Commodore 64 jotstick

December 29th, 2006

I bought one of these Commodore 64 (DTV C64 - Direct TV Commodore 64) joysticks on QVC (search for C64 on their site) a few weeks ago, and it’s pretty cool. It has a bunch of classic C64 games programmed in, but it also has a bunch of ‘Easter eggs’ programmed in too. When you first start it up, it shows the C64 startup routine, and if you wiggle the joystick back and forth, you get into C64 basic mode and can type keys on a keyboard using the joystick. There have also been a number of people who have been able to add keyboards and other peripherals on to the joystick.
