Re: Why were you changing anything?....

Brutal. Sad.

Sounds like you were inspired by Frostillicus' rotating cab, as he did that. I made a cab that combined the yoke (that kind is yoke), with flight stick on right, and GGG up-down spinner on left (for Discs of Tron - alas they no longer make the spinner, though are thinking about it).

My first panel had T-sticks, and while I liked the MiNImal throw, actuation was a little difficult. So, combining the above controls would allow dedicated 4way and 8way panels - hell, might as well do dual 4way and 8way.

What monitor were you using?


By the way, TnF is possible with micros. Years ago I saw a vid of a dude using the two-handed four-finger technique (sounds dirty!) smashing scores. I have regular cherrys, and use a little metal ruler balanced on a rubber grommet, and I've beaten the default scores I think on all events, getting high scores on things like long-jump.

Of course, there's the GGG micro-leafs, which are pretty nice. I have two in my main panel, fire and jump, and haven't gotten round to replacing the others, as I don't much use them. I rarely play TnF. Hell, these days I mostly play Joust.

I'm rebuilding it.

Scifi frauds. SF illuminates.
