    I first discovered emulation in the early 2000s. I picked up MAME and a few ROMs. It was fun to discover. Since then the emulation world has exploded. Some good, some not so good. I liked them because it gave me an opportunity to explore games I couldn't find or never heard of. It also allowed the exploration of games other regions received that never made it to other parts of the world. But emulation is used so much that, in my opinion, has become overkill. Arcade systems made with MAME are awesome but the smaller things like AtGames stuff have below par emulation. One emulation will never do is replace customs developed hardware. Jaguar has never been emulated properly, Atari computer and 5200 emulation still have color issues, and Genesis sound has never been as good as the real thing. On XBOX arcade Wolfenstein 3D the sound and music plays back at a much lower pitch, making it sound like a tape dragging. I use emulation just to try before I buy games. Other than that, for me, emulation will never take the place of real hardware. The real thing will always be top dog.

    Wanted to give some more thoughts on these controllers... I haven't tested both of my controllers...just the one I've actually take out of the box. I mentioned before about the keypad buttons sticking down? Thankfully that really hasn't been an issue in actual game play and I've found that those buttons are quite sensitive and do not require that hard a press to engage them. But one thing was bugging me at first and I'm glad a fix of sorts has been found. The issue was that I was playing Wolf3D (Jag version is my favorite version btw), and I was noticing that frequently when trying to turn left on the d-pad that I would actually move up and left. I found I had to press down on the bottom edge of the left d-pad side to make sure I only moved left and didn't move diagonally up/left. Well other buyers of the controller reported the same issue. Turns out the problem is that there is only a single center mount screw that holds the PCB in place. Because of this there is some play in the PCB allowing it to rotate up and down a tiny bit. If you have the d-pad side down too low, then it is easy to actually be hitting both the up and left contact pads on the pcb at the same time, hence the movement issues. The fix is to basically loose the center screw holding down the PCB, rotate the PCB just a few mils up on the d-pad side, wedge something between the PCB and the plastic that frames it, and then tighten the screw back down. It was mentioned to use a post-it-note folded up into a small square. I chose to use about 2cm from a cable tie I clipped off and fold that in half to wedge in there. It did indeed fix the issue. They could have avoided this by doing two things: - design the PCB with guide holes in it and plastic pegs molded into the top shell to align the pcb properly. You know like Nintendo and most other controller companies have been doing to ever now? - Make the contact pads on the pcb a bit smaller so that there is less risk of it happening in the first place. Still I've been enjoying the heck out of this controller as once I got that issue resolved it easily is the best controller I've used for playing games on my Jag.
