Thanks, Pear, for your fast and accurate drawings.

Also this topic deserved a new thread. Entermice can't be put at the side with this basic interface.

You can theoretically plug up to six one-button joysticks to the Enterprise directly, only adapting the ports. You donĀ“t need Entermice to do that.

Of course you only can plug switch type ones(digital) without autofire or other electronic circuits. Only straight switches, because the commons are +5v and the directions and fire leads are 0V, opposite than standard.

This is still valid for this adapter.

... and in this splitter autofire doesn't work.
In EnterMice is supported autofire.
If you see a need to connect more than two joysticks at the same time (game?), then you can think about interface with autofire support for all joysticks.
