Has anyone bought bought a Competition Pro Retro joystick from ICOMP ?
The joystick seems advertised as msx compatible
but it lacks the second button (button B).
It has two couples of buttons (one upper and one lower on the basis) and a switch (4 buttons + 1 switch total). Sadly, all buttons insist on the same A line and the switch can only activate or deactivate the upper couple of buttons.
Is there someone who modified it to support the msx second button?

I suppose it depends on if all wires exist in the cable and in the connector. Once you open it up, you should be able to see if there are some spare wires lurking in the cable. Without them, you would need to replace the cable to make it fully MSX compatible.

I have one. The build quality is decent enough, but I find the switches to be way too clicky, to the point where it is distracting to use it.

I agree about the noise, but it is also the sole new joystick for msx I have found. Disappointing that it is not fully msx compatible
