I had one of these probably 9 years ago and let a friend borrow it, and of course, never saw it again. I didn't even think twice to order another one at this price. If only SlikStik were still in business, though.

Would be better if some Sanwa/Seimitsu square-gate joysticks dropped to this price.. and I prefer convex buttons =\

Killer price though for dual joystick setup!!!!!!

Awesome price. Have the tankstick in my MAME cab. Can't beat the deal, but I couldn't deal without the trackball.

buy the buttons you like and install them. You can mod the controller however you want without voiding the warranty.

Does anyone know if this will work with the slew of android PC sticks running JB or ICS. I know alot of them can run the games and even use usb sticks but any insight on the drivers required or usage on android system?

Please note, if you're building an actual mame arcade, for the love of god don't just plop one of these on top and call it an arcade. Thanks!

Beautiful. I'm having a growing inkling to build one for my basement. Did you use plans from a website? Or have a step by step? Seems to be a daunting task, and if I were to do it I'd want to do it the right way.

I'd bet money that this will work with the OUYA or someone will create a patch/mod to make it work. Plug this in, install whatever patch necessary, and you've got a pretty cheap option for playing games via MAME.

Looks like it already works with Android pretty much out of the box. Why wait for OUYA when you could just use raspberry pi or Android PC sticks now Smilie Also cool the trackball version, trackball would work as mouse input.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Raspberry Pi isn't going to have the horsepower to play a lot of MAME titles well. Regardless, my OUYA is on the way in March so it could make an awesome input device for it Smilie

I have this - and it's an amazing deal for $60, but I have a lot of regret over not buying the version with the trackball. Marble Madness, Centipede, Golf games - just can't play them without the trackball.

I'd expect it to play titles up to the early 90s smoothly, at least.

(Never mind, I misread and thought you were talking about the Ouya)

I learned my lesson too. I can't tell you how many things were stolen from me over the years from "friends" ... DVDs, games, software, a $200 set of drafting circles, 2 AeroBeds, etc.

"Can I borrow..." ... "NO!"

Or maybe I should start charging a deposit. I got one of those PayPal credit card swipers. Hehe...

This stick reminds me how I built myself an arcade joystick back on the Dreamcast using repair parts from Happs controls [suzohapp.com], some wood, and a cheap 3rd party DC controller I ripped apart and rewired to the stick I built. I see now there are some tutorials out there [arcadecontrols.com]. I need to find that old stick and replace its guts with an XBox 360 or PC board. The build cost me about $200, but that's because I had to buy a bunch of tools (power drill, bits, wood boring bits, saw, sanding stuff, soldering iron, etc). I imagine it could be done a whole lot cheaper if you have them already.
