Just wondering what most people would prefer to see in a MAME steering control. This would be a basic, arcade quality, heavy duty wheel without buttons, electronics or paddle shifters and hooked up in the MAME cabinet to a U-HID control board as optical or 5k pot (FFB is a separate add-on at this point). Each mode is independent of the other, ie., no 270 degree spring RTC with force feedback, etc.
1- Just a 360 degree spinning wheel, to play games like Pole Position, Sprint, Super Off Road, etc. (These are readily available today)
2- Just a 270 degree spring loaded (Return to center) wheel to play games like Outrun or Cruisin' USA. (These are readily available today)
3- Just a force feedback steering wheel for PC or more modern driving games. (These are readily available today)
4- A combination of 360 degree spinner and 270 degree spring loaded (Return to center) that plays most arcade games, selectable on-demand.
5- A combination 360 spinner, 270 spring and DIY force feedback (you add your own stepper motor, direct drive or belted, to the wheel and configure yourself), each mode selectable on-demand.
6- A combination 360 spinner, 270 spring and pre-configured direct drive force feedback, each mode selectable on-demand. This would be the most expensive option, obviously.
