Hey.
I recently obtained this joystick with an MSX lot.
Does anyone care to guess what the extra box is for?

When I set those 2 switches up, the LED's start working.
I haven't figured out the logic of it all yet, but maybe someone here knows this mod?

Thanks.
Kris.

Nah, the LED activity seems to be related to movement.
And I think the round controls are for setting a delay, but I'm not sure I will test it later.

Can you open it and take some photos? Autofire would be my guess, selectable for both buttons - original joystick button and the smaller one added (modded) later.

Looks more like a selfmade Arkanoid controller;
