Hi can you or anyone please send or post a link to the drivers for the .50ae green pistol? I cannot seem to find the drivers anywhere online. You have a great collection by the way! Thanks in advance!

I assume you are trying to use this on PC? As far as I know the .50ae pistol is a PS1/PS2 only gun... I have heard there is a version for Dreamcast as well. But never heard of it working on PC or a PC version of it, so I don't think there would be any drivers available for it unless they were custom made ones... But I don't think you could even make a driver using a PS2 Gun as it has that yellow Video Cable that needs to be plugged in.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

There are actually not many guns that work on PC.

That's just... dumb. Interesting to go with the rest of the collection. But for actual use and so you can be gangster back then in the ps1 days? Dumb.

Hi Sharkey. Impressive collection. I was thinking about getting a Belkin Nostromo. What are your thoughts on this device?

Just to jump in here, I have a Nostromo N52 that's basically new in box I haven't added to my sale thread yet. That's the one with the extra orange and side button next to your thumb. It worked well for me I just don't really have room to keep it on my desk and was too lazy to juggle it and my keyboard when playing games since my desk is always cluttered. If other opinions make it sound appealing to you, maybe we can work out a trade. :)

I agree with you guys. The Wu-Tang is crap. I would say the only person to buy it is a collector. And these usually sell for a small fortune too! Quite ridiculous actually. I was lucky, I picked this up for a pretty cheap price.

When I first got it, I thought that it was an interesting shape, very unique, but when I tried to use it with the Wu-Tang game that's when it showed its true colors. I kept losing; I think most rounds lasted only 1min at the most. I would kick or punch, then try to do a more complex move, but by the time I had started to press the correct buttons, my opponent would beat the crap out of me. Not good for playing this game, I don't think it would be good for any game. I'll try play Wu-Tang with it again sometime, but I'm thinking I'll probably end up using one of my arcade sticks to play that game. Oh, and the Wu-Tang is extremely uncomfortable to hold. I can't actually work out the proper way to hold it. I don't think the creators were thinking straight when they made this controller... Either that or they had really freaky alien hands! :D LOL

Thanks!

The Nostromo N52 is pretty good for a keyboard replacement. Fits your hand nicely and has macros and D-pad as well as a convenient button that acts as the Space Bar. It works as its intended and does a decent job of it. If you like gaming in the dark, like a lot of gamers do, you may have trouble seeing the keys (Not that you look at the keys that much when you're in the middle of a battle with guns blaring and bullets flying). The new Nostromo N52te fixes the playing in the dark issue by adding a glow to it, but the new one is ridiculously expensive in comparison to the older, but still good Nostromo N52.

If you can buy it for a decent price, go for it! Its one of the better keyboard replacements out there. It will take a little time to get used to though. You're generally used to using a normal keyboard, so when you use the Nostromo or any keyboard replacement you will have to adjust to using it. They have a different feel to them.

Hope this helps!

I have been desperately searching the net for years for the Thrustmaster Tacticalboard which I use extensively in an online flight sim for flaps, trim, gear, WEP, map, etc. Are any of these for sale or trade? I have quite a few old joysticks and wheels for trade value. If not any recommendations on where to buy one?

Cheers
