Anyone out there know what kind of joystick to get/use with an iMac?

Thanks,

WWII was fought against fascism, communism, and socialism - so what happened? "Sorry" to vets just does not cover it.

There is a retro style joystick that looks exactly like the classic "Competition Pro" joystick known from the C64 7 Amiga, but with USB connector! It should work just fine with R'n'D, regardless of PC or Mac! :-)

Thanks - do you know the name of it so I can try to Google it and get one?

C64 and AMIGA are right up my alley - my compu-roots! And I finally feel I have the power of my AMIGA back with OSX Tiger.

Yes, it has the same name as the old classic: "Competition Pro" joystick

To buy one, look here, for example:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Speedlink-SL-66 ... B00097CQY2

(Should be available in various other electronics stores, too.)

Just make sure that it has "USB" on it, so that you don't buy a *real* classic one by accident. ;-)
