Kriyasurferchapel: yeah, but why don't we see it in the market right now?

daved*sigh* we are offtopic, and you are wrong, so let's just drop it :)
chapelbecause no one could create innovative games for it
im not wrong, only in your mind daved :P
zorglu_i hope the headset with screen + camera will do a comeback :)
jstewofftopic in IRC? never.... :)
zorglu_the motion joystick aready existed in the 80's :)

chapeli will agree, that the wii does allow some innovation, because there are games and uses for the controller that havent been thought up of yet that are to come
jstewzorglu_: the power glove?
bushwoelieis there a way to convert multi-byte unicode strings to normal strings?
zorglu_jstew: im remember a joystick on amstrad with some mercury in it, you handle motion
sampbari asked this a bit earlier but all the ones they suggested you had to pay for so im gonna ask again (seems like lots of new people online)... anybody got a good starter project with tutorial step by step free?
zorglu_jstew: very good to play the olympic game :)
chapelgoogle sampbar
jstewyeah. The amstrad was in europe correct?
zorglu_jstew: you get the wire in hand and do wide circle with the joystick :))))))))))
sampbarchapel: i couldnt find any step by step guides they all seemed to be starter guides showing how to setup ror and basic commands
chapelsampbar: not saying that to be mean, just that there are tons of tutorials and guides out there atm that are free, just have to find them
zorglu_jstew: it was for sure in europe, i dunno it was limited to europe
