Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

AGF Protocol Game Controller Interface

This joystick adaptor for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum allows the user to customise which keys on the keyboard the joystick maps to. Key mappings were determiend by placing small plastic pegs in the appropriate holes of the pegboard. The pegboard can then be flipped up and clipped in place - the pegs activated a small membrane keyboard hidden under the key code legend.

The red pushbutton acts as a reset button (the ZX Spectrum did not have one as standard), and the toggle switch changes between full joystick mapping and just the cursor keys.
