Bought these (retro) hardware today

Postby Kreshna Aryaguna Nurzaman » 2007-12-18 @ 18:10

Just wonder; do we need a separate "recent acquisition thread" for hardware? I just feel not right to post hardware purchases on this thread.

Nonetheless, I just won these. Heee-haw! :)

I remember blowing about $300.00US on a similar Thrustmaster setup in 1998 or so. I loved the size and stiffness of the F-22 Pro joystick, but it only lasted about a month of regular use in fight sims and X-Wing Collector's Edition. The problem was that, as you moved the handle, there are a couple of cylindrical bars (made of graphite perhaps) that rub against each other in the base, and they simply wore down over that month of use. As a result, there was severe hysteresis around the detent position, and there was no way to fix it other than replacing the cylindrical bars.

I have yet to see a mechanical design that was worth a darn as far as joysticks go.

Thrustmaster had an awesome design when it came to joysticks back then. But maybe it is because I liked the ingenuity of the joysticks back then. Before everything almost became joy/game pads. But even those had some serious cool designs :) Or maybe I am just not seeing many joysticks now a days compared to joy/game pads.

The only difference between what KAN has and my setup is that I had Thrustmaster Rudder Control System instead of the Elite pedals, and from an ergonomic standpoint, it (the system as a whole) was as close to perfection as I can imagine. But if it wears out in such a short span of time it's useless.

Never underestimate your competitor. Ever.

EDIT: why the hell is my ebay id displayed as a***a instead of kreshna_iceheart?

I'm an insane man with insane obsession.

(Actually, there is a pair of obsessions, and here is the other one).

I'm still waiting for the invoice and the S/H costs, though.

Er, the Voodoos haven't even arrived and I've never tried such thing before; any reasons they won't work?

Wait, Voodoo5 5500 Macs have DVI-D Dual Link connector (the fourth connector from above; see the pic below), so it is supposed to be okay, isn't it?

jpd8364. I think you might've outbid me on ONE, at least. :wink:


Er, but your name is not here, and it is not here either.

Wait, is your Voodoo5 5500 PCI a Mac version? You know, the one with DVI connector. If you plan to sell it, just let me know.

Just won a Yamaha SW60XG for US $70. I guess retro games 100 is right; good ISA cards are quite expensive these days.
