Hello!

I just bought a Canon V20 MSX and the joystick port for player one is missing...
So i can't play any games with a joystick.
Well, i only tried it out on Phantasm Soldier...thats the reason i bought a msx again...so i could play that game.

My question is: how can i fix it?
Can i configure something so it thinks that port 2 is port 1?
A more dangerous approach and try to solder port 2 onto port 1?
Or can i forget about playing with a joystick and look for a other MSX?

Thanks!

You could buy another joystick port (DSUB-9 male connectors) and solder it onto the pcb where there used to be one.
