Wow, I had no idea iether. I still have ps2 and gamecube controllers lieing around somewhere.

I actually have a pc controller, but never have got it to work. I love the idea of the retractible USB cable, so I think I'll just go snatch one of these suckers up and carry it with me and my netbook so I can play RR on the fly.

If only I had known there were converters like this around. Thanks so much
for the advice. Just for clarification, how do these things actually work?
Are they another small device that you just plug the controller into and it
can then be connected to a USB port or so? This would be the very coolest
option! :-)

You know, you could always use an actual ps2 controller. I got this
converter from ebay a while back for around $3 that allows me to do this. so
now I play killer instinct on snes emulaters using my ps2 controller. pretty
cool actually.

Hi,wow, this sounds just cool! Looks like this controller would be
perfectly usable with a Play STation console emulator on the PC, as it has
all the necesary buttons and even in similar shapes and places, and 4 more
in addition. I would definitely buy it but maybe would prefer to have a
look at it first, but well, this doesn't seem to be a possibility... You
know, controlling the games in the emulator just with the keyboard is a
pain in the budd. The games were not designed for such controls and it's
too slow and awkward.

   Hi To all, from Ron and Boz.
I finally got a chance to pick up the Phillips hand held game controller
model sgc2909.
The controller looks like this.
With the unit facing you. You have the cable plugged into your usb
connecter
and it is on the top of the unit. There are two flat buttons to the left
of
the cable one button to
the back and there is one directly under that button. Then across the top
of
the controller to the right of the cable on the right hand edge of the
unit
are two more buttons and they're located just like the two buttons on the
left side of the connection cable. One button above another button. Maybe
DJC AKA Don can tell us what these four buttons are and what their
functions
are.
Now looking at the face of the unit. The best way to describe the unit is
that we have a left column of buttons, a center column of buttons and a
last
column of buttons on the far right hand side.
Lets take the far left buttons first.
These four buttons are your basic four directional buttons. They're
triangle
shaped buttons. You have your up arrow, which is at the top. Diagonally
from
this button about three o'clock is the right arrow button, then at the
six
o'clock is the down arrow button, then at the nine o'clock is the left
arrow
button.
Now we come to the center. You'll feel a slight bubble, this is the
visual
display. Just to the left is the escape key and to the right of the
display
is the enter key.
Now if you find the display bubble as your center,Just below the display
is
a group of four buttons in a diamond like shape. The top button is just
under the display . This button is the digital analog mode button. I
don't
think we'll want to play with this button to much. I could be wrong on
this
since I'm still learning the unit myself. But if you keep coming down
from
that button you'll see nothing then if you go down a little further,
you'll
run into another button. This button is the game mouse button. If you get
back in between these two buttons, you'll see a button to your left and a
button to your right. This makes up the diamond shape of these four
buttons.
Maybe DJC could refresh my memory on these buttons once again.
This takes care of the center column of buttons.
Now we come to the far right hand side of the unit. We run  into another
diamond shape of four buttons once again. But these buttons are round in
shape.
Now I don't know what these buttons are either.
But for an example for puppy one. I have the three o'clock button as  my
view button and my nine o'clock button as my fire button.
This was the only thing I had to do so that Puppy one would work
with the flight controller.
The one main thing I have to remember is that the two round knobs at the
bottom are your joysticks and they are very very touchy. They don't take
much to go in the direction that you want to fly in.
So for Puppy one, it is real easily to fly past the enemy planes and then
you get shot down. GRIN.
I did manage to shoot down 67 enemy planes down on the experience level
though.
So I do have one game under my belt thus far.
I now have to work with out back, blast chamber, troopanum, hunter and
the
new three d velocity flying game.
I'll keep everyone up to date on my opinion on this hand controller.
But so far I kind of like it.
But so far with just puppy one. I like it.
So this is my opinion of the flight controller for now.
Ron who finally broke away from the keyboard. GRIN.
Matt & Ron Kolesar & there great Dogs!
