FAQ

Q: How and where to buy the joystick?
A: Currently the joystick prototypes are in final testing stages. Sign up to our newsletter and join the upcoming Kickstarter campaign.

Q: Where can I actually test your joystick?
A: At Jarek’s place. Seriously. If you happen to be within short travel distance from Holy Cross Mountains in Poland, just drop by our inconspicuous retro corner. The exact whereabouts can be found in the Contact section. We can also meet during upcoming events – sign up to the newsletter to be up to date with our tour.

Q: What’s inside?
A: The best heavy duty components combined with experience and genuine enthusiasm. Speaking more technically – microswitches designed to withstand one million cycles and a forged metal head.

Q: Does the joystick feature autofire?
A: We’re working on something more advanced than just autofire you’re used to.

Q: Will your joystick for retro computers and consoles work with emulators as well?
A: Absolutely – just hook it up using an adapter available on the market. Still, we’re working on our own concept that will let you fully utilize the advantages of such a solution.

Q: I’d prefer the joystick to work differently – I like it when the control is more delicate / rigid.
A: The Assembler version will be customizable, allowing you to choose mechanism sensitivity that matches your gaming style preferences. This will include the choice of microswitches, springs, lever characteristics, fire button step distance and even finishing touches of the joystick case.

Q: Why no suction cups?
A: Tests have revealed the cups’ performance to be somewhat disappointing – they tended to gain and lose traction in the worst possible moments, spoiling the gaming experience. Additionally, they require very smooth surfaces to work and degrade over time. To eliminate these downsides, we’ve decided to take advantage of the joystick’s mass and use highly adhesive quality pads, often found in top-tier laptops. They do a great job indeed. Nonetheless… suction cups are planned as a customization option.
