Of course you can use usb controllers, you can even use classic controllers with adapter like this.
But not through DB9 connector on the back, it's only for capturing serial logs. Regarding usb joypads/sticks. You need to go to Amigainput preferences and make
sure it's been recognized. It should be plug'n'play, however sometimes it's not a case.

I learned that AmigaInput is not "Plug and Play" as you may know it from other platforms.

I had to start AmigaInput, THEN plug the device in to get it recognized, THEN set it up in AmigaInput and only THEN was i able to use it.

@marley

I have a Speed-Link Competition Pro connected to the AmigaOne X5000 and it works flawlessly

I have a Logitech F310. The buttons work OK, but the sticks do nothing. How do I configure the sticks to act as joysticks?
