Sorry to have to start a new topic. Is there a playable Tron emulator to be found???? I have a couple but they all require 3 hands!!! Does it exist?

It's true...you almost need to build your own controller to make TRON or Tempest worthwhile in emulation. Even if you used a mouse or mouse wheel as the spinner, it would be hard to hold that and a joystick/gamepad at the same time.

It's true, he does.
There are some games and systems that just don't emulate well. Tron is a perfect example. The arcade game had the controls and lighting that really don't allow for substitution.
Other examples: Vectrex, Virtual Boy, Tempest, Front Line.... anything else?

The closest I came to it was on the Xbox 360, using the thumbstick as a rotating control.
Wasn't bad, but still felt too sluggish.
Come to think of it, the use of it was a great idea, but an adjustment in touch-response (ror at least a user setting for it) would've made it work.
As it is, the original cabinet's spinner control with the mad dial power was tops.
