As you can see, Interactive Dreams is taking care of english versions of the repair sections, for those who don't speak french.

The CD-i "joystick" port is a generic serial port; it does not *have* pins for up, down, etc. Information about the pins and protocol can be found on the ICDIA site here; look under "Technical Info Pointing Devices".

Someone has built a mouse "adapter" that you might be able to modify for joysticks; information about this is here.
