I finally have a working steering wheel for the CV. YES! Can you tell I'm excited?

I wasted $25 with shipping on a non tested non working one a couple years ago, and longed to play Turbo and Dukes of Hazzard. I decided that I would not waste that large a sum again on an untested one. Lo and behold, I sniped an ebay auction and got one for $10 plus $5 shipping and it works like a charm. I am pumped.

Can anyone provide a complete list of CV games that use EM2?

Destructor is the only other game I know about.

Back then they did not support add-ons like they do now. Sad

Congratulations sloan! I know how it feels to finally get that one add-on! I just got a LightPen for my Vectrex! I have only one game on cart but the multicart has most of the games for the LightPen. I'm only missing one that I'll need to find as a separate cart - AnimAction.

Thanks guys. I can't wait to get Destructor and Pit Stop. i already have turbo and Dukes of Hazzard.

Makes me wonder why Atari did not release a steering wheel controller for 5200 or 7800 systems. Pole Position on 5200 or Pole Position II on 7800 would sure have been great with a steering wheel. Also, what about Sega with Master System? Outrun with a racing wheel would have been as close to arcade as it got.

That was indeed a peculiar choice from them. Even if they had done "driving controllers" like for the 2600 (modified paddle controllers), that would have been nice.

Yeah "driving controllers" would have been nice. I forgot all about Pit Stop. That was a fun game. I only played the computer version.

And, you know the iron of it is that Atari kept on releasing driving games for the 7800. A driving controller would have been fantastic! Playing a race car game with a joystick just isn't as much fun.

There's Pole Position II, Fatal Run, and Motor Psycho. The latter one is a motorcycle racing game.

Fatal Run is more than just a racing game as you can shoot other vehicles on the road but a steering control of some kind would make it even more fun. Motor Psycho plays along the same principles as Pole Position even though it is a motorcylce game. It would work very will with the same type of controller.

Very much enjoyed the Road Rash and Paperboy games so I understand your point.

It would have been nice to have had a steering wheel for the early Sega systems.

Bump'n'Jump is a fun game with a joystick. It must be even better with a driving controller. Smile

Thanks for the tip. I have Bump n' Jump for CV and have not tried it yet with the driving module. You know, for as forward thinking a company as Coleco was, it is truly shameful that they died. Think of what Colecovision (and maybe a successor system) could have given to the gaming community if not for 'the crash'.

Never played the Coleco version. It is a fun game on the Intellivision and Nes. Wonder about Up 'n Down on the Colecovision?
