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 a really hard one to emulate due to the spinner.

Exactly! You'd think left/right shoulder buttons could take care of that.

Just venting on my frustration for not being able to play my favorite arcade game of all time.

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?

I do like Tempest on the Jaguar though.  Gyruss would be on that list too.

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.
