    At least UAE's inputdevice.c says
    "supports parallel port joystick adapter"

    Papi go to prefs/usb/devices and setup your joysticks as described here. Remember that one joystick should be "Merged with USB" at port 0 (leaving all the other ports as "Don't touch") and the other "Merge with USB"at port 1 (leaving all other ports 0,2,3 as "Don't touch").

    Then go to .uaerc conf file and edit:
    joyport0=joy0
    joyport1=joy1

    Now, both joysticks should be operational.

    On the other hand, our e-uae unfortunately doesn't support more than 2 joyports :( Therefore games like Beach Volley, Kick Off 2, DynaBlaster, Tip Off, Skidmarks and more (the list you posted is incomplete) which support up to 4 players simultaneously are out of the picture.

    Which is very sad given we have dual mirroring screens and the setup could be optimal for Amiga parties gaming sessions :/

    edit: if 2 joysticks control same player while ingame, it means you have setup the ports on prefs/usb/devices/settings of both joysticks on the same port!

    Indeed, you can try a patched lowlevel.library
    ll4player
    However E-UAE is missing parallel port emulation :-(
