Hi all,

Anyone know if there is a suitable modern replacement for the rotary joysticks found on games like Midnight Resistance and Heavy Barrel?

Got myself a Midnight Resistance board and can't find the rotary joysticks for love or money.

Cheers!

Yeah, Happy sells some black ones. Just look for Happ Rotary.

Be aware that there is digital and optical rotary, so based on the game you need the correct type.

MR is an awesome game, so good luck with getting it. I played on Genesis, one of the few games I can 1CC while completely shit-faced...

EDIT: It looks like I may be getting old, Happ may not sell them any more, but it looks like the Happ one is still way cheaper than the SNK LS-30s on the secondary market. Here's a thread breaking down what game uses what type.

you could use a microcontroller to hook between a different optical stick or even a spinner and the game if there is no better solution.
