so here's a new project, called the 248 way switch.
This hardware will help you through pacman and donkey kong style 4 ways game on mame cabs. Everybody who has played such game with 8 way stick knows this problem:
- Mario hangs on the ladder
- Eating Pacman stucks at the wall
This problem is really degusting playing such games. Here's the solution. This hardware filters the 8 movement with an intelligent filtering algorithm to 4 ways. Playing is much enhanced in my opinion. However, testers are needed. Here're the test prototypes. Cyberbob and Edgearing from arcadezentrum will test this hardware. Report will follow.
