DavidD Posted November 10, 2020 Share Posted November 10, 2020 I have Atari Flashback on my Switch... playing paddle-based games can be annoying, as the joystick is just awkward for that kind of control. However, the game does have an option for an absolute positioning mode -- in Breakout, for example, the on-screen paddle stays in the center of the screen, and moves to the left or right as you press the joystick in either direction. In other words, the game appears to be using the analog pots of the analog joystick in much the same way as the analog pots of the original 2600 paddle controllers. Are there existing "spinner" controllers that act as analog joysticks, instead of as mice? It seems like it would be relatively easy to create those, as you'd just be simulating the existing joystick setup, but only across a single axis. I had the impression that most/all recent attempts at spinner/paddle controllers essentially acted as mice. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
