The Serial Port Joystick Interface allows one or two standard digital joysticks to be used with an Archimedes or A3000 computer (It probably also works with later models). The hardware is a small interface box which plugs into the Archimedes' printer port, a printer can be plugged into the back of the interface. The software consists of a relocatable module to control the joystick interface and a set of RISC OS applications to control the module's behaviour.
The Joystick interface can be used with any digital joystick conforming to the Atari/Commodore standard. Joysticks of this type contain 5 switches, 4 for the directions and one for the fire button.
