I don't like the Dualshock too...
The shape, the analog sticks, some buttons...

I like the N64 and GC a lot! And the 360 too!

I don't know the Xbox controller...

And, hey! What about the Saturn controller! :angry:
it don't have a rumble feature, right...but it's pretty good!

and, lol...what about the Dreamcast? It's not my favorite, but it's cool... XD

Hey! That's a great collection of controllers!

I'm from the 64DD.net too... ^^'

but I think that forum isn't working anymore... i don't know... =)

you can get nice tape rips from merchandising there! from the N64, Sat and PS days... ^^



But, hmm... why you guys here have all this hype about the "hori" pads?

before I join here, the only Hori pad I've seen was for GameCube... o.O

I mean, I think Interact is much more famous than hori (I don't know the brand)...

Maybe I'm wrong...

It's my favorite.

The Saturn is ok. I have a lot of Saturn controllers, but the N64 one is way better for me.
I don't like the PS controller...

It's my favorite generation of games too. =)

Yeah... u.u

It's not against you and your questions topics... XD

Dagoss and dataDyne said all.

But if this is not a joke, looks like it's a topic just to create one...

I can't tell exactly, of course... I don't know your thoughts.

I just realized here that maybe you don't know how tight is a brand new controller. You can be new to the N64 world... who knows...

But it was a fun topic! ^^'

* On the other side, you can't tell if some of us really use astrology to know...

Lubricate means less friction...

less friction involving plastic is a good thing... less wear on the material...

that's pretty easy to understand, no?

Ya, for some reason I thought lubricating it would make the joystick tighter :-8
Datadyne, the controller that I lubricated had a really loose joystick.  I have 2 other controllers with firm joysticks though, so I'll lubricate them.  I'm kinda against taking them apart, but I guess it's worth it.  Thanks for all the advice :)

Oh I see. =)

Well, the wear really happens with the friction.

To make it tighter, people use to melt plastic of a broken controller and try to repair another one.

It's like a rebuild of the weared part.

You'll have to see which part is more damaged, the two black axles or the white stick.

I think the axles are easier to wear, sometimes you can even see the depression on the plastic, where the stick rubs.

* I'm not sure if the white(grey) stick even gets damaged. I'm including it on the theory because the powder is white, but actually I'm pretty sure the white powder comes from the black axles. They lose their coloring when powdered. Even metal does.

* Sorry about the engRish, I think I used some bad-fitted words. ^^'

But don't clean these pieces and play with them. The friction will be high with fast movements and raw plastic.
Almost every moving parts need lubricating. I mean, little parts. Windows don't need lubrication... or drawers...
