Rare, wonderful and expensive controllers called Twin Stick have a rich history and it's mysteries. Sega introduced it to the world back in the 90's. The twin stick controller was attached to all Sega manufactured Virtual-On arcade cabinets Virtual-On (aka OMG) 1995, Oratorio Tangram 1998 and Force 4 in 2001. Sega also released or licensed the Twin Stick for home console and PC use along with/and the specific ports of their games. But only in Japan.
Since 1997, if you wanted to use these gems, that make playing Virtual-On games feel as your actually piloting the Virtuaroid as opposed to operating a Virtuaroid by remote control using the game pad, you had to import a twin stick.
If you have been the "lucky one" (in the West) out of all your friends to shell out mucho dinero to own a twin stick, most instructional literature for twin sti...
In it's forth year ofZAPCON.com event/party operations, VO-MC affords the time to not only attend but becomes a ZAPCON partner contributor! This VO-MC opportunity was a can't miss! Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram to rock the house?!
Many students were new to Virtual-On and then there were old fellas present who said, "I used to play". Now each have fresh and exciting VO memories! Man, turn the lights-on and open the doors there I was training pilots from the get-go! To some was a refresher course others a completely new experience.
The yatter was awesome coming from everybody,"is that Virtual-On? Check out those twin sticks!" "Wow, what kinda controller is that? I only played with a game pad." Well during these two days, seems that all became very familiar in operating the twin stick controller. And I could not be any happier!
