I thought I’d test out that Competition Pro joystick I picked up last week <see previous blog post https://stiggyblog.wordpress.com/2012/09/15/sun-sea-sand-and-swords/ and see if it works before spending any more time on it. If it doesn’t, I’ll spray it gold and we’ll use it as a booby prize for the next RCM gaming competition. Remember the golden joystick award in Gamesmaster TV show?
The Competition Pro (5000), along with Powerplay Cruiser and the original Atari 2600 are my most favourite old school sticks and are my weapon of choice for blowing pixels to bits. I’ll always try to rescue one if I see around. If i had a choice though it would be the original leaf switch Comp Pro model as opposed the clicky microswitch version.
