yeah I made one myself it was a fun project.See my comment above regarding joysticks. I think it would be a fun / rewarding project to make an arcade (microswitched) controller, if you're so inclined.
Yeah I ran into this same issue. I ended up hacking a panel mount connector and using glue to hold it together, but it ended up being a bit loose and kept on slipping out of the Amiga. I suggest buying db9 joystick extender cable and cutting it, there is a brand out there advertising it for the Mega drive/ Genesis.I had previously thought about that making one, but all the db9 connectors i can find have panel mount holes, which make them too wide to plug in my c64, so i advice the Amiga too. Though i did find some extension leads, but they havea squarer shape than my c64 ports. They fit, but it'sa bit tight.
