  1. The white label ones is a later release. At some point EA updated their branding with the Genesis releases. And apparently changed production factories.
  2. I was envisioning variable speed control like a throttle. Would be fun to have the keypad select the game speed on the fly. 0=normal 1-9=incrementally faster, up to 9=hyper fast Would be a Super System exclusive and pretty rad to offer another game mode where the keypad alters just the speed of Pac Man while all other game parameters remain normal.
  3. There are a few. It's been years since I've played any though so can't recall specifics. Thunder & Lightning (aka Family Block) might be the best one, or at least I remember it as my favorite. Nazo no Kabe: Block Kuzushi is on the Famicom Disk System, and was later released on PAL NES as Crackout, it requires a mod to play on NTSC NES. Flying Hero (Famicom) is a hybrid ball & paddle example. You bounce a firefighter up to windows on a burning building to extinguish the flames or rescue a person about to jump. An excellent fun game, and the sequel to Megumi Rescue from the Japanese Master System.
  4. There are a few Korean Mega Drive carts that are compilations of Master System games.
  5. Skiing would be really cool. Not sure how the twin stick suggestion would work though? like what would that allow for control? Horse Racing is an interesting suggestion. Sea Battle is an old classic that'd be nice on 5200.
  6. Just a warning for everyone to keep their expectations in check. Notice how the proposed adapters are not shown in any way. They also advertised Game Gear and Master System adapters for the MegaSG, these were to be released in 2019. So far they have never shown nor demonstrated that such compatibility or adapters even exist in prototype form. Anyone hoping to play Lynx games on the Analogue Pocket shouldnt hold their breath.

    I want one

    He said these were for sale, right. Where do I buy one?
  8. Is that what this is about now? I don't make controllers, dood. All I'm doing is trying to clarify reality. Does the project work or does it not? That bothers you? For a lot of the fans here and on youtube, all they seem to need is for a prominent youtuber to make a "fun" video and they're all begging for that youtuber to take their money, despite the project never being shown to function fully. Brilliant.
  9. 1) Eat a dick. I sure felt relaxed when I typed my previous posts. I'm not now. What are you talking about "product advertisement"? What does that have to do with anything? The video alludes to the controller as being analog, but then it is just forgotten and never mentioned again. Oh, is that "fun"? It's just a fun video that has feverish 5200 fans clamoring for something that might not be real, or at least fully functional. Oh! That's fun! Misinformation or straight bullshit on the internet is always lots of fun. That's exactly what the infamous 5200 needs. 2) I asked a straight forward question. i.e.: "Has Ben Heck commented on the analog functionality?" Apparently the answer is "No". Nobody is asking you to speak for him, though it appears you'd like to. But now as you've shared your experience you confirm just what we'd expect: your analog conversion was jittery, which isn't exactly playable, and sure isn't a "better" controller. I want to read and see that this project worked, but at this point it's beyond suspect that no analog games were shown. Do you really want to excuse them by suggesting that's the only games they had? They can order parts for the controller but can't order a $5 Star Raiders cart to test their project with?
  10. Has Ben Heck answered anywhere whether his project actually functions as an analog controller? It's quite an incredible oversight to not test and validate the analog capabilities, and I find it odd that hardly anyone seemed to pick up on the fact that analog compatibility hasn't been established.
  11. Why doesn't he show it working? It seems very odd to go through the effort and then not show it doing what it is meant to do. I mean they chose a 4-way digital control game (Pac Man), and then a 2-way control game (Mario Bros) to showcase the new analog controller. WTF?
  12. He built a new analog controller but then played Pac Man to show it off?
  13. Thanks for posting that. I'd never played the Lynx version so it was my first time hearing those renditions. I enjoyed listening along to the whole recording there.
  14. This needs to be bumped so to provide a current warning to potential shoppers. I'm presently dealing with some fraudulent BS with gameofjapan. Placed an order for a PS1 game I've been looking for, and to make the most of shipping charges I shopped for some other items. Shortly after my order was placed I received an email saying the items are out of stock and a refund will be issued. ...why wasn't the refund issued right then and there?? The next day I get an email asking for my email address so they can issue the refund. Huh? they have the paypal info already! I respond with my paypal email ...the same one they are already contacting me with. Two days pass and I get an email saying my refund has been made. Strange there is no email from Paypal, so I check Paypal. ..no refund. I email gameofjapan asking for my refund.. No response. two days after that I file a complaint with Paypal. still nothing from gameofjapan. Still no refund.
