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:

Eugene Jarvis - Atari - Podcast Interview - Creator of Defender, Robotron & Stargate This is probably my favourite interview to date as I have a long and in-depth chat with arcade, Atari and Williams legend Eugene Jarvis. Eugene shares some great stories of working at Atari, what it was like working with Nolan Bushnell, creating Defender and Stargate. He also talks what inspired him to make Robotron: 2084, Smash T.V. and loads more. He also looks at his current work at Raw Thrills where he keeping arcades alive with amazing innovations. He also talks about his views on the Jeff Minter's Defender 2000 on the Jaguar. The 1 hour 30 mins chat with Arcade Attack is honest, funny and really insightful. I would be so honoured if you checked it out and shared your feedback.

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?
