I do not think this one has been covered yet and it pretty trivial but:
What happens if a player's joystick breaks mid game?
I say that the player simply shouts "aaaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!!", presses the pause key and changes it.
Anyone disagree with this???????

Sheer luck perhaps. I dunno. I did takes shards of plastic out of it at the weekend but the lack of those hasn't hampered it's use. They were from the base, and seeing as the thing works without the base being there it'll be fine (hopefully) <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Well certainly inside anyway. It look likes a CompPro 5000 shaft but is definitly some kind of metal inside. It's had a hairline crack on the ouside for about 10 years and still it goes on and on. I'm buggered if it breaks tho., they were no way as popular as other sticks of the time <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

That reminds me of my jstick. It's like a small black box with a red button and a short stick, bringing in mind those old arcade sticks. All dressed in metal, it can't get more powerful than that!

OMG! Martin, did I get that right? QUICKSHOT??? Gee, that must be the worst jstick to use for KO2! Actually, I had smashed 3 of them in 2 years before I purchase the "pacman" jstick. The stick is too high, the buttons are placed in a very uncomfortable position, just a bad jstick in my opinion...

Hey I think the stick is cool apart from the fact it is easy to break. I like the design. I like the feeling of being in an F-16 taking out loads of Migs whilst avoiding Stinger missiles and anti aircraft fire...well errrrr thats how it feels going through JHB's defense!
