Only grab one if you have a use for it with something else as there is every chance it won't work with the mini.
My own Atari style 9pin to USB adapter didn't work with the mini, it's just a simple plug'n play for Windows XP or above and requires no additional software to make it work. Windows own controller calibration software sees it just fine but again, it does not work with the mini...

Works together with a the64 Joystick connected to Port 1 and the Adapter connected to Port 2 (tested a Quickshot II Turbo on left DB9) Since you have only on Button, you definetely need a the64 joystick connected to jump between the Games and Carousel.

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

eBUG: Hmm how about the C64 makers include some Pascal software and other creative software in addition to games in the carousel ? :-D
