There's this cool trick called "Rampant OCD" lol

In all seriousness though, I'm just really particular and spent a reasonable amount of time figuring out exactly where I wanted to route everything.

I got some cables laying around. Think you can come over and help?

Sure!

 

I'll need a plane ticket to Arizona (First Class is preferable but Business will suffice), a suite at the Phoenecian, a woman, and a pair of LCD3s.

 

My requests are modest....

LOL I used to say the same thing on airsoft forum when people were asking for help with their guns/gearboxes. "Sure I can help if you pay for transportation, lodging and food."

Actually, does a large Flat-Rate USPS box work? And something off the McDonalds Dollar Menu, plus a night at the local Days Inn. Does that work?

Well guys the old Rumble Pad 2 has finally packed it in.
Do any of you use a gamepad on the PC? Suggestions for a new one?

Not looking for a Fight Stick with $85 buttons that you have to order from Japan, just a good gamepad so I can finally beat Mortal Kombat with... I just can't kill Sho Kahn with suck azz Radien... biggrin.gif

Bluetooth controllers are a good bet as you can also pair them with Android devices and use them for mobile gaming.

However I really like the Xbox 360 controller. Comfortable for my smaller hands and after marathon gaming sessions with friends the muscle memory is just there.

The Xbox 360 controller just works so well with Windows. Almost every game I've used it with recognizes it immediately and the buttons are mapped perfectly. Even on-screen prompts show up as Xbox buttons as opposed to keyboard keys.

 

The other upside is that if you buy the Windows specific version with the included dongle, you can connect three (Why not four? What were you thinking Microsoft?) 360 controllers to your PC.

I tired a wired Xbox 360 and it well blew up in my face, still the Wii U with the right drivers and a few modified drivers functions as a Xboc 360 controller [as it's mapped pretty much the same way]

 

so I'm willing to put the time into getting it to work :3

 

also I just got rid of EVERY SINGLE non 320kmp3 I had :D yay me [I had a lot of old junky mp3's from back when I had a zune q.q]

I'm thinking the Windows XBox 360 Controller or the Logitech F710...

Decisions, Decisions....

Also works fine with Linux (just needed to plug it in and the kernel recognised it; a "dmesg | grep xpad" confirmed that; joy2key/xboxdrv allows you to map the buttons to keystrokes for those luddite games that don't natively support a gamepad). Granted Linux doesn't have the best gamepad support, but with SteamOS and Steambox coming perhaps that will change in a hurry.

I remember the early closed beta for Steam Linux..  I installed the package again today to check it out again, same bugs :(

Linux needs more love

So AMD came out with whole new MANTLE thing. Guess it's time to upgrade.
