Some of my favorite 2 joystick games for the 2600 include Stargate, Spy Hunter, Solaris, and Radar Lock. Over the course of time I've tried various joysticks out on these games to see if I could get superior control one way or the other. Really the best option happens to be putting a table in front of me with a pair of suction cups joysticks attached, but hauling out a table for that purpose is kinda a hassle. There are trays for the 2600 CX-40 joysticks to be placed in for 2 joystick gaming, but I've never managed to add one of these to my collection... So, I have a new idea to share here, and it h has to do with using an 8bitdo Retro Receiver for the Genesis along with a wireless pair of Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons. Check out what I've managed to accomplish:
Hey Everyone -- So I've been playing a lot of Defender II (Stargate), and like some other people, I just can't get 100% comfy with the 2-joystick controls. I know I could buy a foot controller or something, but I really feel like it would be just about perfect if the 2nd controller utilized the Video Touch Pad or Keyboard/Kids Controller instead of the joystick. I've looked and seen a number of other people asking something similar. But no definitive answers. I don't think a hack like this already exists or I would probably have found it around here somewhere. So I guess it's more of a matter of "Is it POSSIBLE, from a programming standpoint, to hack Stargate/Defender II to use the Video Touch Pad as the second controller?" I suppose that a "yes" eventually would lead to "Has anyone worked on it?"/"Can someone do it?"/"What would it take?" questions in my mind. It's easier to hunt something if you know it exists. But if it's a moot point anyway... I'm just wondering if I should bother holding out hope that one day I'll have my optimal version of one of my favorite 2600 games. Anyone?
