Have you tried this joypad (preferably for the CPC)?

Crap? Good?

Never seen that one before. Are the fire buttons independant?

Never seen that one either. The "tested on a amiga computer" makes me a bit worried about if its compatible with the cpc. Not that i know the technical differences but i do recall that switch on the Competition Pro that switches between cpc and amiga mode. That this joypad only has one-ish firebutton is a good sign though. Still hard to guess.

Just read. There is only 1 fire button. The second is a turbo.
Now, you may hack it to use both... But, it's expensive and not look good quality, on the picture.
