Geez, do it right. If you want to play Pong, buy one of the old upright arcade machines. Get one that takes quarters...

Kneel, bow, pray to the dumbest game that started it all:

Ponnng...
I was skimming through all my rom's on MAME and just came across some real cool blockbuster or "breakout" type games. So many odd Japanese ones too. My pc joystick is sloppy at best. The whole idea of using a joystick analog or even a independent d-pad just is too sensitive for the emulator pc experience. IMHO.

I had the Atari 800, lots of installed games there, preferring star raiders.

Sort of followed along to Space wars, then Asteroids, Wing Commander, Flight Simulator, Falcon...

the history of flight, lol.

Paddle games? Bah...
Yea i got all them roms too. Currently looking into PC flight sticks for them also.

My first foray past pure Atari consoles was the TI99/4A. I mostly used it to teach myself BASIC and play Hunt The Wumpus. I had the speech synthesizer and tape drive... It might actually still be in storage somewhere.

For what it's worth, I'd go for the Stelladaptor. After looking into it a bit more it seems like a solid product just rare. I can't believe there's one available right now.

I guess I did come across a real rarity today. Hmm? Going to give this some thought. Now back to TURBO 30. (new JP album). Peace and Thanks for the input.

Not pong, but probably the best advert from that generation ever. Can't see many advertising agencies okaying this these days


Someone should definitely bring back the paddle, the closest you could get is with a racing wheel I would think

Kinda off topic, and so is this.




Turbo 30 kinda reminded me of this old gaming, album cover (joystick) and the songs.

I'm wondering if I was doing it wrong all those years... Did ya'll hold the controller like Stevie in that picture? I always held it with the button on the upper left side.

Right away i was turned off at the whole $45 dollars for it. Then the first comment about it?


Cute but Total waste of money Ive had this thing in the past and its just a never winning battle due to poor software. My current gripe is that it wont let my machine or the screen go to sleep. I like to leave my machine on and after 45 mins it will go into sleep mode. Now with MacOS 10.12.xx with the powermate software running, my machine wont sleep nor will my screens turn off. This is very annoying and expensive. Pryor to this issue, there were the issues with the software not working at all after a few hour, zero compatibility with my win 8 or 10, etc. This company make beautiful hardware, but really lacks when it comes to software updates. This particular one hasnt been updated in 3 years. They keep coming out with different hardware, but dont seem to think its necessary to update their drivers.


Thanks, but not in anyway interested in this.

Dam you are a hard person to please arent you?

For a start its $45 because it is exceptionally well built as i explained earlier.

These are examples to show you that there are many options out there that might work for you, its up to you to find one that might suite you.
