Are you like me where you curse
every time you have to swap joystick ports on your C64?
Hilariously, a few weeks ago I was watching a stream on Twitch where the gamer had to do the swap from port 2 to port 1 and sarcastically said under his breath, "Ah, the sign of a truly great game - a port 1 game."
How many times over the past 35+ years have you had to swap joystick ports just to play a game? I lost count when I was in my teens, so that's saying something. Poor ports.
Well, Evie Salomon at Backbit has invented what she calls the TwoBit.
The TwoBit plugs into both joystick ports. You then plug your joystick into it.
It has 3 settings: 1, 2 and B. "B" stands for "Both", which means you can leave the switch set to B and it will automagically use both ports at the same time so you never have to even think about it. This works for most games. If, however, it doesn't seem to work, you can flip the switch to 1 or 2 to dedicate the joystick to the port the game is seeking.
Never pull your joystick out and swap ports again! Reduce that wear and tear, yo.
Works with the Commodore 64/64C, Commodore 128/128D, and VIC 20/VC20!
All for the criminally low price of only $25! You can get yours here

Not for use with paddles, mice, light pens, 2nd button of joysticks;
