The controllers I made and sold have 36 detents per spin, as I believe do the ones made by Jonathan Ascough, while the ones made by Chaos Reigns used smooth ones with no tactile feedback between steps. I may however be wrong about that as I don't own any of those guys controllers myself.

If you intend to maintain a post with growing information you can request that it be made editable to you. Simple report the post and in the report state you are requesting that it be made editable followed by an explanation of why that would be beneficial to the thread.

That's interesting. Back when I was making them, the only other ones anyone had were JediJeff optical controllers which were incredibly hyper-sensitive, and hacked 2600 controllers, which were the other way. I had the choice between detented and smooth, and went with detents because it made the menus and bonus stages easier to navigate (I didn't know about the second pad trick for bonus stages at that point).

You would have to do more than just remove spokes, you'd have to widen the others to compensate, and widen the space between the sensors too, otherwise the 4 steps in each cycle would be different sizes and you'd get a very odd output with some pulses longer than others even when spun at a constant speed.

So an adjustable encoder (either mechanical or optical) isn't possible then. It was an interesting question to ask at least.

An interesting Wii arcade stick to Jaguar rotary hack, here's a video:
The sticks can be had on eBay UK for £6 delivered, I've grabbed a few, I like the look of this.

The vast majority of controllers, be them pads, arcades sticks or whatever, are set out that way, but some people just can't spin with their left hands.

That's why I make my controllers right handed (",)
