Just wanted to chime in about a new upgrade board being offered for the entire Tank Stick line of controllers. This new board provides backward compatibility plus new USB device modes, XINPUT & Directinput. I just ordered and upgraded my Tank Stick and the new modes work great to anything that recognizes XINPUT & Directinput controllers.

While I don't have one this is great for users who do. Thanks for posting. For anyone unsure when using it with the Replay I believe you will want Xinput mode. This is what a lot of controllers use most notably the Xbox line of controllers.

Direct Input is used my Sony controllers as well as Android devices if I am not mistaken. Sony controllers tend to have issues when used with computers in general, and they need to be used with a Xinput wrapper like DS4Windows or DS4Tool

I do remember this, reading one of my emails. New logic boards will be offered to previous customers at a discounted price and will be in their new line up. Also will have zero delay.

Looks like I might be getting a tank stick soon!

(Soon = after tax refunds are in!)

Very well worth it.
Or you can buy the kit to build your own for $80.

Makes those arcade games even better!

Has anyone tried to use the Tank Stick ,on the Dreamcade, with the update? I am trying to decide whether it is worth purchasing the Tank Stick update.

Good question!

(And sorry to get your hopes up that this reply would be someone who HAS actually tried the Tank Stick on the newly upgraded Replay and can confirm it works!)

I'd like to know too! :)

I was talking about the board update for the actual Tank Stick itself. I wanted to see if anyone has been able to use the the Tank Stick on the Dreamcade after installing the new board. I didn’t want to shell out the money for the update, if it is still not going to work on the Dreamcade.

I’m sorry for the confusion. I should have been clearer in my explanation.
