Dealing with Joystick Configurations

As part of our “How To” series, this page will discuss how to deal with joystick configuration issues when using your own games with TheC64Mini.

How do I use “Joystick Port 1” – as many games such as Ghostbusters requires a controller in Port 1?

  • It cannot be currently selected in the interface.
  • Rename your disk image file to include “_J1” at the end.  For example, “Ghostbusters.d64” should be renamed to “Ghostbusters_J1.d64”.
  • Get a “hacked” copy of the game that switches the ports (find some of these here)
  • Use a configuration “CJM” file to specify that Joystick 1 should be used (use our tool to create your .cjm files)
