    Please read the "Atari Joystick Modification" thread. The video above does not use the modification.

    Easy accept on this!

    Ill be very interested in seeing how the running events go with the modified joystick.

    Folks, how do we know he didn't use a modified joystick? It's crazy, if someone is honest we think the gamer is up to shenanigans. How many people actually show the controller? I don't know where we are headed with this. Greg isn't trying to get away with anything, but on this topic how do we move forward as a community ya know?

    This is funny, but even don, doesn't show and he's got a camera on his ass. Where do we draw the line? If greg said nothing it'd be fine. But he was honest. It's should be does it provide advantage. I think a modified orig console controller does.

    but if Greg wasn't honest we'd never know.

    I don't know how to move forward. There's only been a few people that were dishonest since I've been here. Tysons punch out NES and Galaga, MAME. Those two submissions and everyone freaked out and it almost ruined it. Most people Do want to achieve that record. And then we went back to normal after the discussion. I feel like crap that galaga sub passed. I'm accepting this sub because I believe it. Continue modded atari joy elsewhere.

    Hi guys!

    Greg was honest saying about not using the modification in the joystick. Fine!

    Anyway, as a general rule, I'd say that all this kind of games, games with focus on speed pressing, smashing buttons etc (ie Decathlon, Track & Field... also Dance Dance Revolution, Duck Hunt etc) should show the controls in action, in the recording. I don't know what is your idea, guys, about this.
