    That, will it work on Snes, Mame, and Neo Geo emulators(Speaking of that do games like King of fighters 2003, Mark of wolves, Metal Slugs, etc... work yet?) I am guessing most Mame games work(Pacman, and other classics)

    I hope it does.... :-/

    Well...it says "Classic Controller compatible". So I guess it is really a classic controller that is shaped a bit different than normal.
    I know Tantric's emulators support the classic controller. But to be sure, I'd check out the status on sdlmame and neogeo emulators (I guess the neogeo and arcade VC already support it...but that's not saying much about the emulators).

    I know its a different stick but the Tatsunoko Vs Capcom (madkatz version) works perfectly fine with the emualtors I've tried (Mame, Wiiengine etc).

    Well it should but I'm sure you can find a cheaper one in case it doesn't?

    It is much better than the hori stick! The 6 button layout works perfect for SF2 on mame. [​IMG]

    ..and yeah it is strange that madkatz actualy produce decent sticks now! lol I've got the TE SSFIV stick on my 360 and its an amazing peice of kit.

    I have this stick and it does *not* work with Wii emulators. There is, apparently, a bug in the libwiigui or devkitpro (iirc) and pads that aren't explicitly the classic controller do not work. It's annoying, but it is what it is [​IMG]

    I've got two TvC sticks (seeing as they are such a bargain right now) and they both work great on 0.5 and 0.6 of wii mame (just configure the buttons within the emulator to get the 6 buttons working). The only buttons on the stick that don't seem to work for that emu are start and select but these work fine on the wiimote which is attached to the sticks anyway.

    Also don't forget on the TvC stick there is a button to toggle between analogue and digital.. maybe this is an option you haven't tried to get it to work?

    If I had to guess, it's the toggle between analog and digital that allows the TvC stick to work w/o (most) issues--the Hori, sadly, has no such switch.

    Hi,
    I recompiled latest versions of Snes9x, FCE Ultra GX, Frodo and GenGX with my testing routine for the Hori Fight Arcade Stick. (modified libogc)
    The main problem was, that the stick has an analog range from -89 to 0 and it has the same ID as the Classic controller. It sends min 0, cal 32, and max 64.
    This is more perfect than any classic Cal-data could be. (i hope so) Now, in every cycle the routine is testing for this values. If they are true THEN Hori stick and if they are false THEN Classic Controller + Standard calibration routine.
    After a sleepless night with coffee and DevKit, it is working now.
