Time Soldiers & Rotary Joystick
« on: October 08, 2017, 02:36:12 pm »
A local person is selling a Time Soldier's arcade, it has a "Rotary joystick", I have never run into those, and am not sure if they still have 4 way controls + twisting action, or what exactly they are.
My intention would be to swap out Time Soldier's with a 60 in 1. Would this be possible?

The LS-30 is an 8-way stick with a 12-position rotary switch.

In rotary joysick games, the 8-way part works like any other 8-way stick and the 12-position rotary switch is used to aim by turning the stick. (shown at 0:30 in the video)

This allows you to move in one direction while firing in another.

To use the rotary function with MAME, you'll need a rotary encoder.

That is a terrible donor cabinet for a 60 in 1, you would be replacing almost everything other than the cabinet wood, power supply and some of the wiring.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.
