Re: Or, more simply.....

I remember the big push in the 80s (and mid-90s in car stereo) to go to buttons. I hated 'em, even the better-made products. Dials and sticks made more sense to me, and I just won't play games without them.

The only exception in my experience was the Game Time watch - but the movement was always some version of side to side, so buttons were just fine. The Arcade Time watch had a mini joystick, which for the kinds of games it had was crucial (and way cool).


Want to mention that analog handling in current MAME seems to be....slightly weird. That is, at least with my Ultrastik 360, I 'get stuck' more often (say like in DK from ladder to platform) than in older MAME. The latter seems more forgiving.


Consider it high comedy....sincere tragedy....whatever...don't take it personally.
