More like a PSP "D-Pad" than a real one that way :( ;)

Plus you lose all the L/R functionality.

I'm still waiting for someone to implement controls in a vertical shooter where you can turn the GP2X sideways and use the buttons and start/select to play :D

well, it could be done with games that dont require much buttons, and the push button on the joystick could work as one needed to do stuff...

yeah, ABYX doesn't rocker like a proper would. still, nice to have options.

what i'd love is something like a laptop nipple for the joystiq. even daveC's cap isn't prime.

You guys know you can do this with GP2XEngine, right? You use the volume buttons as I and II.
I've been playing it like this for a while and it is very comfortable, a bit top-heavy with the batteries in though.

I assume you are being sarcastic, but if not, MAME lets you do just that...
*EDIT* Sorry, didn't read through all the way. MAME lets you use the stick and volume buttons*EDIT*
