I have a Tandy 1000hx coming in the mail in a few days, so I've been looking into what I can do with it (play with it...)
Actual tandy joysticks are few and expensive on ebay.
So I looked up the pinouts on the Tandy joystick port, and it does seem possible to adapt a normal (old) PC joystick. I found one tutorial, which required a wire soldered in the joystick, which I'd rather avoid.
So that got me wondering... could I interface a Commodore 1350/1351 mouse to the tandy joystick ports? I'm assuming a serial or PS/2 mouse couldn't be interfaced?
Could I adapt a PC joystick port Midi cable to the Tandy joystick port(s), and thus communicate with, say, an MT-32?
Does anyone have any experience interfacing the Tandy joystick ports?
Thanks for any info anyone cares to share.
