Connecting joystick to a computer.
Check the Computer Engineering area of the Hila Projects Page for more information.
Connect the wire from the aluminum sheet to pin 1 on the gameport.
Each of the other wires (4) connect through resistors to pin 3 on the gameport.
Suggested resistor values:
R1 - 1K to 5K
R2 - 20K to 40K
R3 - 50K to 70K
R4 - 80K to 100K
