Great, now I know anything in angled brackets doesn't appear. In
steps 3 and 4 the key the hotrod uses for SELECT is LEFT Ctrl.

Or better still, goto http://www.computersworth.com
<p>

They still(?) have HotRodSE joysticks for US$99 instead of US$199 and
the shipping cost to New Zealand was only US$68 instead of Hanaho's
US$99 price - and what's more it was here in 6 days!!!! :))

<p>

Ok, so converted to NZ$ it came to a whopping $371 which is rather a
lot for a joystick but absolutely worth every penny.

<p>

Would I recommend it... absolutely. The first night I had it I tried
a test game of Xevious. I'd been struggling sometimes to get close
to 100,000 points on this game. The first game with the HotRodSE I
got 178,000 points on my first life and 382,000 on my first game -
which ended rather too soon because it was so long since I'd been
that far into Xevious I couldn't remember what was coming next..

<p>

BeeJay.

Update: My friend liked my HotRod so much he decided to order one
for himself from ComputersWorth.com and his arrived in 8 days as well
so it looks like they're the bees knees when it comes to fast
delivery.

Damn, I ordered a Hot Rod SE from http://www.computersworth.com on a Tuesday
and received it on Thursday!! I certainly don't think that you have
to worry about them....

Unfortunately it looks like they have now sold out of the last of
their shipments of US$99 HotRods.

<p>

They were plainly visible on the main page and have now been removed
so it looks like anyone who was thinking of getting at that price has
now missed out.

<p>

Cheers,

Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY IT FROM:
http://www.arcadejoystick.co.uk/

<p>

These guys have actually cheated a lot of people of their money, by
claiming to sell the joystick, and just take the money - but never
ship anything.

<p>

BE VERY MUCH AWARE!!!!!

Here is an official statement from Hanaho, concerning the company on
http://www.arcadejoystick.co.uk/:

<p>

Søren,

<p>

We are aware of them screwing people. We are also trying to contact
that
company to get them to stop. We will also try to post something on
our site
about the fraud activity of that company. I'm very sorry that you
were taken
advantage of by them. What can I do to try to help you?

<p>

Sincerely,

<p>

Conway Ho
HanaHo Games

Did you order via credit card?
<p>

If so, simply tell your bank or credit card company that they did not
ship the product, tell them you expect a refund and let the credit
card company sort them out for you. I'm not sure what the legal
standings are in your country, but here in NZ if you did not receive
the goods the credit card company is obliged to give you your money
back and the problem is then their's to extract the money back from
the company that diddled your order.

<p>

They will very quickly remove this companies secure authorisation
rights and take the appropriate legal steps against them to recover
their money.

<p>

If you used mail order or cheque.... well you're unfortunately
probably screwed in which case you have my sympathies.

<p>

I ordered my Hotrod SE on the first of June from the web site... We
are the 5th and it was already delivered (in Paris - France) this
morning by UPS !

<p>

The hotrod I ordered was the USB version but in fact, this is the
standard version bundled with a handy keyboard to USB converter....

<p>

I plugged it on my laptop under W2K, and the USB converter was
recognised... really plug & play ! I then switched on my video
projector (2.4m x 1.8m wide screen), started mame, changed default
keyboard layout to HotRod SE ... and guess what:

<p>

A lot better than a real arcade ! Waow that's real fun to play these
old games on a huge screen at home with arcade quality controls... My
first test was WonderBoy... and I did my best score !

Greetings, <p>
I'm sure this thread is long out of date, but I was wondering... Is
there another arcade stick out on the market that is similar in
function and feel to the HotRod, or does Hanaho have the market
cornered? (Please don't mention the one from ACT). Please send
responses to my e-mail address as I will probably loose the URL to
this thread.

<p>

Thanks!
