my wonderful new controller
i haven’t owned a controller for my pc since way back when i got a cheap knockoff mad catz version of the gravis gamepad which was in a snes controller shell. ah those were the days. i used to use that thing to play nesticle all the time. anyway, i wanted a controller, but a decent one costs like $40. even the cheapest logitech pads i could find were like $30 and they looks like crap. so then i found out about xbox controllers just being usb and you can hack them up. so i found a cheap used knockoff mad catz version of the xbox controller s for $10, took a usb cable lying around my house, and started cutting. but then i couldn’t find any electrical tape and i realized i had no soldering iron. so 5 mins of twisting and duct tape later i have a controller that works anwyay. it’s not too bad, except that i really don’t like the xbox controller all that much, but it works better than my keyboard. my favorite part of it is how half the wire is black, then there’d duct tape, and the other half is white. that’s a quality job right there!
