Gave the Amibian build a try, I now have it booting straight into C64 emulator, with 320x240 tft screen working. Internally it's all running at 640x480 so that the HDMI will still work, the screen has been resized to 720x540 so that it srhinks down to <snip>

Not directly, I left a grumble in the comments section but nothing more. There's a new version in the works, maybe that'll fix the issues.
It's based on this (https://gunkrist79.wixsite.com/amibian) which according to one of the comments also <snip>

Been trying that for a few days now

Basically this (https://cmaiolino.wordpress.com/) build boots up to vice c64 in a few seconds (excellent!). However, I can not get wifi to work, which is apparently added in the latest build. best I can get is Eth<snip>

Building a Touchable Keyboard

Back on the c64 emulation side I seem to be stuck. I found 2 distros that boot straight into a c64 emulator. One simply will not show up on my network, the other refuses to actually run the emulator as well as network not working also.
It's a shame I<snip>

It think that'd be part of the reason that keyboard controls were a bit odd, like z/X for left/right and p/l for up/down maybe specifically choosing keys that wouldn't clash...?

OK, after reversing the circuit - pulling each pin low with an external resistor and applying +3v and reading that way, I get a slightly different outcome, I can press the same direction on both joysticks at the same time, but can't press more than one<snip>

I can't think of anything that would work for everything other than getting the same reading from both sticks. I have to be missing something ☚ī¸

OK, I'm half done. It seems there is a minor glitch though. It's detecting both joystick correctly, with each one sending the correct key presses. However, if both joysticks are pressing the same direction/button then it releases both. Can anyone s<snip>

This is the plan, I've just this second built a C64 joystick, I have a master system controller, created 2 joystick ports and I'm about to wire them up.

Modern Amiga Emulation

I kept the old Amiga forever that came with Retro Gamer that time, I think it was limited to basic A500, but that's probably enough for most games to work wouldn't it?

I think I'll give this https://pilizard.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-pi-lizards-64-images.html?m=1 a try, if it really boots straight into vice quick then it might work well. Hopefully I can add an LCD screen to the startup sequence 👍

OK, latest test has the screen working (touch screen hasn't arrived (yet?)) and a joystick being mapped as numpad keys 2,4,6,8,5. Works well. The only thing is, I'm running out of digital pins. I was thinking I would need to use some sort of resist<snip>

Looking at how the screen looks now, I think larger would be better. Each 'button' is about 5mm accross.

One of the screens has arrived. It's a little smaller than I imagined so I think stuffing this contraption inside a DSlite case might be out of the question, not to worry though, the first round will be mostly a test to see if it's something I can <snip>

Rather than checking actual direction over distance, just checked if x/y was different and not 0. seems a little better than my older 'is it fast' method.
