Was there any attempt to make controllers with more than 1 fire button ? I mean as separate control input.
First you would need a way to use it on Atari. I think it would be possible to use paddle hardware for detection (and it would actually allow for 3 separate fire buttons).
The you need software which supports it, but modifying existing games (where it makes sense) would be simple. I'm actually working on a game where 2 buttons would be nice.
And then you would need the joystick. But at least here in Europe we mostly build new ones or make a major repairs on old ones, it's not a big deal either. The cable with enough lines can be a problem, but with those cheap Chinese extension cords, it's doable.
I want to know if you heard about anyone trying it, doing it, if there are games supporting something like that, old or new, and what do you think about the idea in general.
