Is there a chance that the Atari 2600 paddles get support?

Driving controllers can be converted, but they're not that great apparently. Paddles only go so far then stop so they're not suitable for conversion afaik. Doesn't mean someone else might not be able to hack them for st/falcon or support them, but the things I was talking about are the same kind you can use with T2K on Jaguar and making use of the continuous turning.

similar but not the same! :)

I guess the trackball would have a better response as that has the 'rolling' / continuos input?

thanks for the heads up on that ! :)

Trackballs are a direct replacement for mice so they're supported for free if the game supports mice (I use a trackball with my falcon to save desk space, 'TBT')

I think GGN has been thinking about games that use rotation to control the player but simply using keys or left/right on a stick (I could be wrong, I don't always pay attention :P). There's a few games I can think of that would play more naturally and possibly more fun with a spinner and the game he's patched today lives up to that. hopefully a release will come soon through the usual channels :-)
