Why are these things so fucking expensive now?

Last time I looked I could find one for 20 bucks, now the going rate is $50?

This thing is absolutely not worth that much. The only game that really benefits from it is Nights and that game will last you maybe a few hours at most. People say it's good for Lobotomy's FPS games and Burning Rangers but I fail to see how. You can't even move in a straight line reliably with the thing.

Would be great if an adapter existed that enable the use of the analog stick and triggers. At the end you're buying a Nights pad and that's that. Was serious disappointed I couldn't use it on my Dreamcast with my Saturn adapter that worked great but only with the digital controls.

Lobotomy FPS games allow for modern fps controls with it (analog to look, ABXY to move/strafe). Keep in mind this was in ~1997, so kind of a big deal.

Burning Rangers is mentioned because it's by Sonic Team and autists keep defending it, despite it being a mediocre game with poor controls and camera like every single one of their 3d titles.

Saturn 3D pad has a dial, there was no mention that the adapter only worked with digital inputs. Sega made a big mistake in not making the Saturn controllers backwards compatible with the DC.

There were closer to about 50 games. Also, the 3D Pad has a compatibility mode with the Saturn racing wheel and Mission Stick.

>> No.7052950

The first release is considered "buggy", but outside of a couple of small graphical glitches (like the a-pillars on cars disappearing sometimes behind the windshield during replays) I've never had any problems with it.

Sega Rally Championship Plus fixed those bugs and added 3D controller support. It was only released in Japan, but it's 100% English so you can import it.

Sega Rally Championship Plus Netlink Edition was released in the US later on, it's the Plus version with the addition of Netlink support. It's expensive as fuck though.

If you're buying physical games like a retard than get the Japanese Plus version. If you have a Pseudosaturn cart/mod chip/ODE than just download the Netlink Edition.

Amusingly enough, you can find/replace "Sega Rally" with "Daytona USA" in this post and it would still be mostly accurate.

Do you seriously want me to go get you a picture of my 3d pad, you faggot? It's the middle of the night.

You're the one who thought the switch essentially didn't do anything, given you thought a Saturn-DC adapter would let you use both the D-pad AND the analog stick at the same time.

Although, now I am kind of curious. why can't you use both? Does the analog implementation use the same bits as the D-pad or something? Wonder if anyone's done a write up on the controller spec.

Well played. 10/troll. You got me. No one could actually be this retarded, right?

Should have bought them before some youtuber made a video on it, bro. Much more comfortable than the standard pad and has analog support for when you'd want it (though the mission stick is generally more fun for that).

>> No.7054757

For whatever reason the analog only works as either an alternative to the D pad (bleh) or recognized as the steering wheel controller. Or if you have Twin Sticks, that.
I don't know if the Saturn Flight Stick would work on it.

>> No.7055082
File: 12 KB, 259x192, what have i done.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

It uses different bits. The bits for the dpad are present in the protocol used for analog devices. The 3D controller just doesn't fill them with the state the dpad is in.

No doubt that reason is Sega being retarded. The 3D controller always communicates with the console as an analog device. The switch only toggles between dpad and stick bits being populated.
AFAIK all "analog" devices use the same ID. I've seen clever/retarded ways of identifying custom controllers using other data though.
According some official documentation I've read the mission stick does insert the digital bits so would work as a dpad with any devices that uses the dpad bits in the analog protocol.

Pic related is the cunt at Sega who came up with this shit.

Ball dropper.

>> No.7059040

Which game is that? If you just plug a 3D controller into a Saturn and stick a logic analyzer on the the port you can see that the controller keeps the data lines high during the dpad slots when in analog mode. That game must have some way of telling the controller to do otherwise. I'd really like to take a look at how that's done. This would allow me to create an adapter for the ESL dialfag so he could use it with his DC.

>The platforming sections require the player to utilize the camera control in order to see around certain objects, and supports the Saturn analog gamepad. Though control is purely digital, players can use the analog controller to simultaneously control their character (using the D-pad) and the camera (using the analog knob).[2]

You zoomies and your reading comprehension. No where in there does it say you can use both the Dpad and analog simultaneously. And, in fact, you can't You have to use the switch to switch between them. Never underestimate the ability of sega to be retarded. Also, never underestimate the ability of ability of a zoomer whose only source of knowledge it wikipedia to be retarded.
