Pole Position II reacts very well with Video 61's Atari 7800-compatible Trak-Ball controller. It does not work at all in the menu, but the car is pretty controllable in Trak-Ball mode. Of course, both buttons work quite well with the Pole Position II scheme of acceleration and braking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking!

Can you shift up and down between Hi and Lo gears?

How well does it work with Ken Siders' [RIP] "TB" hack of Centipede?


Supernatural, perhaps...baloney, perhaps not.

this is a further experiment by Video 61 and Atari Sales showing interaction between the V61 Atari 7800-compatible Trak-Ball controller and the game "Pole Position II." i was asked if you could shift the speed, and you can. it works well. also i used a older version of pole position II, the one that has a spring loaded dust cover, and you can pick your track also on that version. the older version is two rom chips on the board, the newer version has one chip on a 32k board. there might have been some alterations to the code for when it was ported over to the single rom 32k board

 

 

 

 

thanks for watching,
