Joystick Dragon 32


Recommended Posts

A few days ago a Dragon 32 arrived. It works correctly.
To enjoy your games, most of the time you need to play them with Joystick.
Where could I get some?
I know there are adapters to use Atari controllers (or other controllers) but the price, for now, I have found very high.
I'm new to the Dragon and I'm lost when it comes to peripherals.

Son fáciles de hacer. Tengo un kit a la venta... pero puedes convertir la mayoría de los joysticks analógicos para que funcionen en dragon/coco... no es difícil.

Okay Dave.
I am interested in the one you have for sale and also some web link to try to do it myself.

There were official Dragon-branded joysticks.


As Dragon Data shows, the "old style" joysticks came with only diagonal markings and colorful "fans" on the boxes.  The later ones came with all 8 directions printed on the joystick casing and game art on the boxes


Ian Hill showed some other Dragon-compatible sticks I'm unfamiliar with.


Another joystick meant specifically for the Dragon and sold in Britain was the Altai DR-2B.  At the moment it's available for £24.99 on eBay UK, item 133515862878.

But the Dragon and Color Computer had the same joystick port, so that you could use CoCo joysticks on the Dragon and vice versa.
