Hi all

This came plugged into a ZX81 that came with a couple of Spectrums:-

Should it have been plugged into a Spectrum?

Iss 3 with ZXVid, another in nearly perfect box

It's a Kempston compatible Joystick interface using minimal address decoding (only A5 and /IORQ), so will work okay on both 16k/48k Spectrum and ZX81 computers. Not that many ZX81 games support Kempston Joystick interfaces mind (search the forum for more info).
