Hi guys! I and my friend decided to bring something new to you. The joystick. But we need some feedback before it. Description: We decided to find out a way how to make new Atari Joysticks and similar joysticks with 3D printer. We try to have as similar as possible construction for the same impression of playing games like the original old joysticks. But we have one thing in our construction different. Our Stick will be exchangeable and modulable. We will have more types of sticks and you can choose what type you want. Sticks will have different shape, size etc. Our questions are: 1) Is this idea interesting for you? 2) Are you looking for some new joystick because your old was damaged? 3) What types of sticks do you prefer? What joysticks do you like? What was your favourite joystick in 80/90's? ( CX40, QuickShot etc. ) 4) Would you like exchangeable stick at your joystick ( when you will get tired of the old type of stick you can simply change it for another one ) or you'd rather buy another new joystick when you want to exchange the stick? 5) Is the autofire function important for you? 6) How long stick movement do you prefer? ( short movement is like pressing a small button, long movement is like pressing a key on your keyboard ) 7) Do you like an idea that you can buy only the 3D data for your 3D printer and make it for your own? 8) Do you have some tips why this idea doesn't make sense? For example you can buy really new QuickShot on Ebay etc. Progress: Thank you for your time, sharing and answers! Best regards, EnJoyStick Team
What's up with Nintendo hardware shortages lately? You'd think as a major multi national corporation they could figure our how to make enough of their product so that it is widely available. Below is the scene at my local best buy today, Not a Switch, Wii U, NES Classic, 3DS, or 2DS to be found......lol I get that it's launch time and the Switches are flying off shelves, but i've generally noticed low or now stock just about everywhere these days. With all their liquid capital you'd think they could make it happen. Makes me wonder if it's a marketing/sales tactic, manufactured scarcity as it were.. Whats your take?
The homebrew community enjoys robust support, with new PCBs being produced for new games and repros. But eventually, the hardware will fail and disappear. Is there a cost-effective way to produce new, but technologically authentic pre-crash consoles?
