It's amazing how long ago analogue crept in. I still use the digital pad in defiance when ever possible. Don't like change me
I love Tempest2000 as much as the next man. I actually was pretty ambivalent about it, but I put the time in and came up with an addiction
Are these rotary controllers worth the effort of T2K alone? (i bet they are
The best score I ever got on T2K with digital pad is about 500,000 to 600,000. With a rotary I now break a million. The control is much more precise and absolutely no more over-shooting when stopping or reversing.
But there's no need to hack a rare Pro-controller for rotary, all rotary games are simple arcade and none are programmed to take advantage of it. You can change the Web positioning with the extra buttons as most of the keypad is divided in vertical rows for switching web/camera position. But that's it and not worth a pro-controller since most people choose a web view at the beginning and stick with it.
Plus, positioning of the rotary sucks on that pro. On my controller it's to the left of the keypad about an inch below the d-pad and still close enough to the keypad not to get in the way when using the D-pad for menues and bonus levels. I was gong to upload a pic, but it's 840k and only 256k allowed here. I just refurbished my PC and don't have any graphics software installed yet to convert the file. I'll post it later.
