Speedster II Review - I don't even remember writing this

Recommended Posts

Oh, that's cool.  A custom controller for the game. It probably was the only one.  I wonder what it looked like.  Did he ever send you any pictures, @eightbit?

No, IIRC he wanted somewhere around $600 or so for it and at the time I just didn't have that kind of disposable cash. I was living with my girlfriend at the time (now my wife) and she was pretty livid that I spent over $300 for a game cartridge to begin with ;)

 

I didn't want to bother him for pictures for something I knew I was not going to buy. I haven't spoken to him since then...almost 20 years ago. I wonder how he is and if he still has that stuff.

Well, now I know why I couldn't play Skycopter!  Who's making a dual holder for the Jaguar controllers?!  😄  By the way, here's the label for Skycopter that I found online several years back.

A dual stick is being made by @grips03

Not sure it would work with this game.  I'm making a Twin Stick for Total Carnage.  Twin Stick will have rapid fire for games like Raiden too.

Mario Perdue has (or had) a custom controller for Skycopter II. After I acquired the Speedster II prototype in 2001 he found and reached out to me to let me know that he had a copy of Skycopter II and the custom controller for it and offered both to me for purchase. I was considering it but I recall the prices being way out of what I could afford at the time and I declined.

Okay, is Skycopter II different from Skycopter?

There is no Skycopter...only Skycopter II as far as I am aware.
