Hi! I know, maybe speaking of having problems with paddles in a mailing list where you, CBM gurus, speak about hacks that a normal person couldn't ever imagine, can be considered OT, but I prefer to ask here than on comp.sys.cbm :-) The problem is: some times ago I bought a couple of paddles for my VIC 20 computer for playing with those games (like Super Smash) that require them. I tried them with my "FrankenVIC" (the VIC 20 for my hacks) with no success: the object controlled by the paddle was too fast! It rans from left to right and vice-versa and it was impossible to make it moves slower! So, I bought another couple of paddles (they are the C= brown ones, lime the others) and... same problem. I was quite disappointed, so I tried these new paddles on my first VIC 20, my very first computer. Here, the paddles were controllable! But only a couple of the two ones and the bar, on the screen, was trembling quite a bit... What is the problem? Are my two VIC 20s unable to correctly operate with these devices or are the potentiometer inside the paddles of poor quality and, with the age, they doesn't work as they have to do? I hope you can help me. ____ / ___|____ Daniele Gratteri, Italian Commodore and Amiga user / / | | |___/ E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org / / | |___|___\ URL: http://utenti.tripod.it/danielegratteri \ \/ / \____| IRC: FIAT1100D - ICQ: 53943994 \/\/ Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
