    Looks cool! I always sucked at Tempest, and never put in enough time to change that fact.

    Are you spinning the 5200 knob to move around the web? Those damn things never work

    nope, basically keeping the joystick all the way to the side and moving it in kind of a circle motion. the smaller you make the circle motion the slower it goes. It is kind of hard to explain. It controls good though once you get used to it.

    Works with a trackball, too, though I don't own one. Stick controls seem pretty solid and take advantage of being analog. I thought it was just moving left and right? That seemed to work for me. I was kind of hoping for a circular motion, but that might be too much movement and be hard on the sticks..

    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it.

    Check out my original rock/blues/folk/country at www.zeyerband.com or myspace.com/zeyerband.

    I hooked it back up and tried it again and you are right, it is just back and forth side to side movement of the joystick. the farther you move the joystick to the side the faster it goes. I was spinning it around in a circular motion thinking that was what you were suppose to do

    They have the sounds extremely close to the arcade original.
