Ti-99 Super Stik


Recommended Posts

It is actually a quite stable TI joystick. They were built to take the punishment of long use. I just bought a set from eBay because I didn't have a boxed set of them. I've used one of the sets I have now for something like 20 years. . .

Thanks! I wanted to make sure I'm buying a good joystick, mainly because there are very few alternatives. But now that I think about it, pretty much any joystick is better then the first-party Ti-99 joysticks!

Well I got my Super Stiks in the mail today. and let just say I am very disappointed.

 

They don't work! Or atleast 1/2 of each one does not.

 

1 will fire while the other will not.

1 will move left and right and not up and down.

1 will move up and down but not left or right.

 

So needless to say i'm not happy.

I got mines this morning. I tested them with all the games in my TI-99 collection. (Which is only 4 games not counting the TI-basic games I have stored on cassette.)

For some reason they don't work right on Car wars, but they work just fine on Munch man, TI invaders, and hunt the wumpus.

So far, they seem to work.....Key word "seem".

i contacted the seller and they said they would take them back. They never tested any of them just assumed they were new since they were in the box. I think they were, but with their age and depending how they were stored could have caused components to fail.

 

So I will be building me a couple of arcade style joysticks with:

and

I have a couple of ATARI extension cables I don't use I can re-purpose. Just need to decide which enclosure to use.
