    We have all the component bits to make rotary controllers happen for Tempest 3000 for those who are interested. I wanted to hold off letting anyone know until we had tested the components so there isn't any vaporware.
    Eltoozero has a working prototype and is putting together a design that is a bit more flexible which should be done by the end of the year. If anyone's interested, we would like you to sit tight and be patient.
    We feel its a good idea to have people who might be interested in one to know the time frame.

    Will this require a sacred sacrifice of an existing controller (gulp!) or are these being made from scratch?

    They are being made from scratch using a fresh supply of Polyface chips which have been the biggest roadblock, the cords are utilizing firewire since they mate with the Nuon's controller ports.

    Awesome! If you are interested send me a PM with your email address so I can keep it on hand when we are ready to build them.

    So good to see my baby has grown up and soon will step out into the world as an adult. Thanks so much to Lee for taking all this off my hands and being able to make sense of everything I spent years pulling together.

    Can’t wait to finally play T3K with a rotary. I don’t care if it did take 5 years.

    I'll buy just the Polyface chips if necessary and mod Neo Geo X joysticks just to get to play this so if for any reason the casings don't happen just let me know!

    This is sorely needed. I dont like playing it with the Logitech controller. Im on the waiting list for one for sure.

    Hi - just wondering how far along this is, and if you have any idea about how much it'd cost. I'm interested, largely based on how difficult it seems to be to find any controller.
