: there was an article printed in june '83 in 99er that has the schematics for a joystick rs232 connection (output only) for printing from that port...no PEB needed! Anybody out there ever build it? I'm looking to have it possibly act as a full rs232 - that would take altering the hardware/software...the hardware is where i need most help.
I built and used JoyTalk for a long time, it worked quite well.
However, you'd be hard pressed to make it work both ways, it was
output only, but it used several inputs to detect paper out and
the like - it was really only useful as a printer port, I'm afraid.
(It was also limited by needing the MiniMem, at least in original form.)
