Old MAME Controllers - Spinner & Joystick Panel

Spinner Controller

The final version of this panel came out a bit different the what was planned. Originally, I was going to have dual trigger sticks, with a spinner in the middle, so that I would be covered for both dual-stick trigger games, and single-stick trigger games with a spinner. I opted out of having dual trigger sticks, due to not being that many games that required it that were must play games. This also let me make the panel smaller. Unfortunately, I also did not yet have a trigger stick when I started the project, so for the time being, I put in a normal joystick, with a plan later to add a Xenophobe-style stick later (trigger stick with two buttons in the front). Alas, I never was able to get that stick and replace it before letting everything go later on down the road. At least I had a nice spinner panel for that time being. The spinner also works really well with driving games that use a digital arcade wheel.
