Actually, @double_draggin,. I have a few mental conditions, significant be enough to be on disabilty. And my issue us pretty much lifelong.
The reason that i talk my way through it is because it’s cheaper to fix it in the idea phase than when finidhed anf kncomplete.
When one makes <$10k a year, you can’t afford to throw good money after bad at it. One has more time than money, so part of that time I throw ideas and see if they.
As for your idea, that only works if you can disassemble and reassemble joysticks easily. I tried using qyick connects before, but the caps fell and the wires got confusing as the tags fell.
I’n using my previous exoeriences, along with my previous exoerience to make one joystick last a long lifetime.
When one sees a serious lack of right handed fight sticks, and when Nintendo makes you feel like a criminal for using your own joystick, even back in the SNES days, even though no one makes a rightie stick, even though they had plenty of “lefiy” solutuons for the pre-crash sticks, and no one talks about it, one seems like an outcast.
Nintendo, in the NES days made a hands-free joystick. Microsoft makes both button remapping part of the IS as well as makes an adaptive controller. And what percentage ofboeople woulf this help. A tentj, avhunfredth?
Sporting goods stores sell left and righted baseball mitts, golf clubs, and hockey sticks. And you got different size choices for all those pieces of equipment.
The only sport that has rules against lefties is Polo, because be head in challenges of opposite-handed people make horses run head on. But that’s for the common good.
The next toughest sport against the opposite hand (which was only declared the off hand by the arcade industry to pump more quarters in machines.) Is video gaming.
Other than corporate greed, what is the reason why all sticks after the crash are left-sticked?
And why left sticked. The Atari 2600 assumed most people play with right handed sticks, and “forced” right sticks in the market.
In the pre-crash era, Mattel. Coleco, and Emerson made anbi sticjs as tgeir default sticks. Many companurs made Astrocade sttle trigger fibgers and a sungle mirroref buttin in bith sides for 2600 sticks. And some Atari 800 software had as a menu option L for left-handing player 1, (and Shift L for left handing player 2) then rotate a standard stick 90 degrees clockwise.
People spoke up in the 80s, and even Atari listened by making their 5200 stick, and both 2600 and 5200 trackball ambis. And the 7800 had 2 buttons. They weren’t mirrored, unless they were the same. Like all 2600 stuff on the 7800.
Speak to then, and some company makes a joystucj fir you. Soeak now bc abd oeople tell you to DYI, and if you can’t, hure someone.
Have you heard if anyone getting a custom stick in the Genesis/SNES days? Serously. Any SRKers get a custom Genesis/SNES stick to when they were the latest systens? Or did you only get SNES/Genesis sticks in retrosprctive?
Thrre was no shoryuken com in those days. And Nintendo was tryibg ti cinvibce ne tgat wasn’t important. Ar least Sega tried to solve the problem and gave me the nane of KY Enterprises. And their stick broke down in two weeks and had poor customer service.
But I made the most of those 2 weeks. Not only did I dominate my friends, but be they doninated a future fanous gamet among my friends. To read the true story sakes pitch, visit http://56ok.org/Ambidextrous/index.htm
The question is when many people complained in the 80s, the market listened. Complain in the 90s or later, the market shuts you out. World Trade Federation ?!? And Why?
