X-Arcade TankStick dimensions?

Recommended Posts

I have a Tank Stick. I didn't build a full cabinet, but I built a pedestal for it. The main reason I did it this way was because I needed a functional solution quickly, and that's exactly what I got. My full MAME cabinet took me about 25x longer to build than this thing, at probably double the cost.

I have the DualStick, had it for years not one complaint. Need the TankStick for a new project. That & the Playstation 2 adapter will be the costliest part of my project. Im getting an empty Arabian cabinet to install it on.

 

Yeah Soul, I found the dimensions there. Thx!

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

 

My order has shipped & expected this Friday! I ordered Monday- that is, put the 2 needed items in my cart but didnt complete it. Got an email the next day prompting me to complete my order, with 10% off as an incentive! That paid for most of the shipping!post-1754-0-79386000-1507163806_thumb.png

Yeah, the shipping for mine was very quick, and great customer service. The website is very detailed and had files and walkthroughs I needed to get my stick running in MAME.

 

The extra buttons and twin joysticks are great, but the trackball is worth the extra money. It's just amazing!

Do I have to damn the towel myself or have a priest do it?

 

:) :) :)

 

 

BTW the TankStick is in town!!!

Heh. That's what I get for trying to type out a quick reply on my phone at work. :)

 

If you already have the earlier model of the X-Arcade TankStick then you know how to get it running and all that. The only other difference with the trackball model is the pinball buttons on the sides. You also use those by default to insert credits and go back to the main menu of MAME if your not using a front end.

This TankStick is a thing of beauty! I misjudged its size so I'll need a plan B.

 

Soul I must've got an updated manual, there's a whole page dedicated to cleaning the trackball, including careful removal.

 

Although earlier in my manual, they refer to the Wii as the Revolution.

Yeah, I bought mine back in Feb. Good to know they provide instructions. Like I said, the support and help files the company offers is really great.

Well here's the latest, the trackball was fine out of the box but stopped working for me after a few plays. Then I find out it was finicky with a Playstation 2 even in the testing phase. Wish I'd have known that before my purchase.

Pardon my ignorance, but what would one do with a trackball on a PS2?

Atari Anthology has 4 games that use the ball- Centipede, Millipede, Crystal Castles, Liberator.

 

Any PS2 game that has mouse support can use the ball. I know Myst III & Half Life have mouse support
