  • My Microsoft Sidewinder joystick.
    • My “Gravis PC GamePad”.
      • The handles are easy to break by rather low users´s force, by construction, but this is a wanted effect, because else the GRAVIS Gamepad itself would be damaged.
      • In the early 2000ths, if You lived in Europe and if Your gray handles of Your GRAVIS Gamepads were broken, you could ask for free replacement :-).
        • Call a free GRAVIS service hotlines. The hotline for Germany was +49-(0)130 810654 :-).
        • Or You just sent a FAX to +31-(0)343 563225 with Your name and address, and that you need gray handles, and the number of wanted handles.
    • My Joystick “Gravis Firebird 1” ( not “Gravis Firebird 2” ).
      • In the early 2000ths, there was a hardware upgrade from Firebird 1 to Firebird 2, but it was not yet available in Europe when I asked for it, and it was quiet expensive, $19.95. So I did not upgrade.
