    Would it be possible for someone to mod a Joystick (Like a old Amiga Joystick) or even better, a Control Pad like the SNES Pad so we could play Snes with all the buttons :D It would be an Excellent mod in my opinion :D

    I think someone over in general talk is modding an xbox pad. Seems rthe contol code for the snes pad is too damn complicated. + what they may not realise is that as the xbox controller is a standard sindwinder controller with a modified case and usb connector, sindwinder pads will work to.

    Well, this is just an idea, but from looking at the chatboard, it looks like if some emulators supported it, you could use that as a control pad... WASD for cursor keys, and then you've got masses of buttons... like emulation on PC... what do you think?

    Is a PS-Pad easier to do than a SNES-Pad?
    Cause I play with the PS-Pad on my PC, pretty good (also for the SNES stuff :))

    2 possible ones, but most ones only have one button.
    Some games (like Turrican, Turrican 2, e.g.) use the second button, most don't.
