Any rough time frame for orders/pre-orders? 

I'm shooting for sometime in October (late maybe). I plan on contacting everyone on my list once I have these ready to go.

Looking at my list I see I have you listed for possibly two units. Is this still correct?

 

Once I contact everyone on my list I will then put them up for regular sale.

Many of the people on the list didn't purchase the first time around and I want to make sure they get a chance to buy one.

 

So for everyone else, if you want to be on the list just let me know and I will add you to the list.

Apologies, but due to my Jeep frying its ECM I'm going to have to back out.  Any budget for tech toys has evaporated through the end of the year.

You are on the list (and the last one for this list).

 

***************************************

For those on the list I will be contacting you via PM in about a week to finalize details with your orders.

 

At this point I can not put any more orders on the list as I don't have the materials to make any more at this time.

Once this current run of orders is completed I will start a new list.

Not sure if the Cyclone II is still available, but if so please contact me at [email protected]  Thanks!

I have you on the want list for one Cyclone III (the Cyclone II is no longer made).

 

-----------------------------------------------------

 

For all those on the want list (which totals 18 units currently). I will be contacting you via personal message here on AtariAge in about a week with details. We are getting really close... More to come. Sorry for the delay. This year has been crazy!

What's the Cyclone III got that the others ain't got? :)

Functionally it's exactly the same as the II. Because of all the craziness this year, my parts cost jumped. I didn't want to up the price on the spinner, so I had to redesign it to use less costly parts. It's now a unibody design and mainly 3d printed and it's still has the same bolt pattern as well. Here's a couple pics of my test spinner:

I'm sure pboland is sick of seeing my (face/avatar/words/etc) in his threads being a fanboy but I will tell you that this - seriously - is a great product. The ability to add arcade buttons to my enclosure (Cyclone II + III) and USB plug n play (all) are fabulous.

 

My original is on my arcade cabinet and I use the buttons on my cabinet to fire. The II is in its own box with arcade buttons on it and that gets ported around with my emulation laptop.

I recently got my Cyclone III, and while unfortunately it won't work on my PS2 as I had hoped, I decided to still build the controller as I intended to, only now for PC/MAME use:

Nothing too flashy...simply the necessary controls required for Tempest, and enough real estate for the artwork, and comfortable long-term play ergonomics.  Built into a Hammond 14" x 8.25" aluminum enclosure (reinforced & weighted), with the Cyclone III, (2) Sanwa OBSF-30 silent (black) push-buttons, and the control panel artwork is a scaled-down copy of the Tempest cabaret cabinet's CPO.  I even added a cord cleat to the rear of the housing to wrap up the USB cable when not in use.  I still suck at Tempest...but it's a lot more enjoyable to play now!
