I don't have an objection as long as there is not a save/pause feature.

What about controllers?  I can get a much higher score in many 2600 games with my competition pro over a cx40.  I feel genesis pads are almost cheating.  Ever watch a speedrun video of someone playing say dragster with a genesis pad where they arent even holding the controller?  Not a gripe just curious.

I assume it wouldn't matter, as long as it doesn't change the actual gameplay, people who use emulation can use a keyboard, so I don't see why you couldn't

agree, no problem!  use any controller as long as you're not activating controller advantages like slow/turbo/autofire etc.


some people prefer genesis controllers but I personally seem to do better using the CX-40.


btw, I never saw that but I have seen videos of people killing it at Dragster and other games using a CX-40

It's what Darbian used to get his 5.57.
