I just received a parcel with some retrogaming stuff from Finland.
The parcel contains a very strange joystick interface, which I had never seen before.
All the stuff in the parcel comes from a Finnish collector. The lot was a computer with peripherals, and everything is 1984-1985.
This particular joystick interface does not look homebrew. The casing appears professionally made, also the printings on it are actual factory-made prints, not stickers.
I have no joystick to test it so don't really know how it works
But I can speculate that you connect the interface to 2 female computer joystick ports (for example on the C64 joy ports 1 and 2), and then one joystick to the centre plug (male).
Then with the switch, you choose whether you want the joystick to be connected to port 1 or 2.
The labels read 'KB' and 'ANKB' - I really have no idea what language it is, maybe Finnish? What would this mean?
Anyone has any clue what is the interface, who made it, etc.?
