I'll see if I can give it a go.

Actually it might give me an excuse to set the dam thing up on my pc, sinse it would be rather nice to at least try some games on it.


I can't make any promises for doing it properly though, so if it fails to work it's as likely to be me missing something in config as a problem with Mota's joystick support.

Beware the grue!

Hi Dark,

Could you do me a favor? Could you set your X-Arcade stick up on your
PC and test it out with MOTA beta 18. The reason I'm asking is over
the course of beta 17 and beta 18 I spent a lot of time and effort on
getting USB joystick support working, adding a custom profiler and
everything, and have recieved 0%  feedback on it. Besides a few people
like Ron who like myself seems to be interested in joysticks I'm
almost willing to szay joystick support in accessible games is a
complete waist of time.

Cheers!

Hi Ron.

i strongly advise you to look at the x arcade stick. Ten and 15 buttons
models are available and ones with one or two sticks.

The point of the stick is to have something much like the arcade machines of
the 80's and 90's, a stick you can really hammer around, thus apparently
it's bullit proof (certainly I've had mine for a number of years and it's
been great).

Other models also come with track balls for mouse control, and I believe
there is a specifically flight orientated model, though I myself have the
more classic arcade affair.

It is usb compatible and comes with a life time guarantee (which isn't a
joke sinse I had mine repared in 2008 sinse the wire connector to the stick had got disturbed while moving house, though certainly this wasn't caused by me playing games on it at all), pluss if you want to plug it into your game
console you just buy and adapter and screw it onto the end of the lead.

I actually have one for my gamecube which i play games like soul calibur on, and should I ever get another console I'll certainly buy an adapter for it.

Weerdly enough the only thing I don't! use it for is pc, though really the only reason for this is me being too lazy to go through the config, and too happy with using the keyboard on most games anyway, though should analogue
jumps or fighting game motions be required I well might change my mind on
this.

In the Uk, I bought mine from a mail order shop called gremlin support who were wonderful with tech support and even put me through to the states and had someone talk me through the connection process, complete with money back guarantee. not sure where else you'd get one, but the company's own site can
be found at http://www.x-arcade.com/ complete with a resellers list I
believe.

the only thing I'm disappointed about is that they don't do adapters for the Snes, the oldest console they've got is the ps1, though as my capcom fighter stick is stil in full working order despite being about 16 years old, this
isn't currently a problem.

I'd strongly advise looking at X arcade joystick wise.

Hth.
