Yes, the joysticks (analog ports) work just as the 'standard' joysticks work.  If you write a simple BASIC program using the JOYSTK variables, it all works.  Returns a 0-63 value.

If it takes modification for RSDOS games as well, then the OS9 driver would also have to be modified (which should not be too big of a task).

MShell has been tested on the CocoFPGA at 25mhz and was reported to work fine. I hope to (maybe) get a CocoFPGA soon, and when I do, I will be glad to help get the drivers and all straightened out.
