Just got the Konami Scramble that's been released on Steam - I'm not well up on gaming gadgets though which is why I as here now ….. about joysticks. Can someone name the better style "basic" joysticks. I've got a Cyborg game pad USB that plays the game but the stick is very sensitive and I keep crashing.
Sounds like you need one of those arcade joysticks that they use for fighting games. I'm not sure which ones are the good ones but I do know that they can get fairly expensive.
I modified a controller years ago by gluing an extension onto the top of the stick so that I could steer better in racing games. All I used was the body of a Bic pen and some hot glue, I thought it worked pretty darn well for 5 minutes worth of work.
