I can't seem to lay my hands on a decent electrical description of the Commodore joystick port. Need to confirm that pins 1,2,3,4,& 6 (l/r/u/d/fire) are pulled from high to low when the switch is closed to pin 8 (Ground)
Could someone confirm this?

Spyhunter could have used an extra button. So could Gianna Sisters, Ghostbusters, and even games like Ultima. In fact, if you put your mind to it, most games could have made use of the extra button, but some games really needed it.
Naw, kids are spoiled today. The old Commodores and Ataris only needed one FIRE button! I can't believe all the buttons and joysticks they have on the PS2/3 and Xbox. Man, you ONLY need Left, Right, Up, Down, and FIRE!!
