For 20+ years, our loyal arcade customers have begged us to produce a commercial-grade spinner to express our Pittsburgh, PA, steel city and coal-mine roots: built to last with an unbreakable, indestructible design. We don’t build plastic, throwaway products. Xgaming means: Durable, Beautiful, Usable. We stand by these words, and we’re still here after 20+ years, while our competitors and barbie-doll-plastic-arcade products fill the landfills of the world. X-Arcade is still going. And going. And going.
So, our customers have been raving about Glen’s Retro Show and their passionate support of the arcade community, so we’ve thrown away our design plans and are now proudly building a limited quantity of this amazing spinner to ship in March. Why? Because THOU IST damn good. How good? Damn good. So good we said it twice. And Glen is passionate, and the Thunderstick Studio team handling the production has sincerely impressed us with their attention to detail and imagination.
We sound like a White House Press Secretary spinning and spinning. So what’s the catch? While your lips may be moist with excitement, stock is limited, so you’ll need to pre-order now and we’ll be shipping these in March. You’ll need to decide which button you want to take out and replace with the spinner, we include all the hardware to make this a super easy, non-technical install.
The Glen’s Retro Show Push & Pull Arcade Spinner oozes creative utility and performance with a high-quality aluminum structure, a premium hall effects sensor (what is Hall Effect and why is that cool?) that offers buttery smooth movements and lag-free response. While this is certainly an arcade spinner, think of it as an incredibly swift utility knife on your arcade project. ANY GAME that use mouse functionality can be controlled with this single hand/finger spinner. That means left/right OR up/down. The switchable X and Y axis mouse directions also offer you extra freedom to play in a way that suits your style. The only limits of its use are your imagination.
Enjoy Tron™, Tempest™, Arkanoid™, Blasteroids ™, Wolf Pack™, Mad Planets™, 720 Degrees™, Aztarac™, Forgotten Worlds™, Kozmik Kroozr™, Crater Raider™, Wheel Of Fortune™, Victory™, Two Tigers™and more.
Compatible with anything which can use a USB Mouse for input/control. It features a USB 2.0 interface and automatic software calibration . Wondering if this will work with your game or setup? Any game, console or system which can use a USB mouse can work. You can test by plugging whatever USB mouse you have sitting nearby and trying to configure your gameplay to use THAT existing USB Mouse. If it works, this spinner would be setup the same way. It’s a USB mouse, no fancy software or drivers, this simple design ensures maximum compatibility. If you can configure your Mister™ to use USB mouse for game, it will work! Does not work with the illegal and unlicensed Pandora's box systems unless you can configure gameplay to use a USB mouse
Everything’s a mess right now, chaos seems to be the flavor. So, we’re thinking some control would be helpful. With this spinner, you can definitely control the left or right movements of the mouse in your game. And if you push and pull on the spinner, your computer will think you pressed the left or right button on the mouse. We imagine this simple feedback will be good for your brain and entertain you, hopefully bringing some respite from the maddening hell and chaos which is our existence in 2022. Ok, it’s just a spinner. Our marketing department must justify its existence.
How hard is this to install? You’ll need open up your X-Arcade Machine or Joystick, it might take 10 or so minutes, then pick which button you’d like to replace with the spinner. We’ll include some helpful videos and ideas, plus all the hardware you need! Keep in mind when you PRESS DOWN ON THE SPINNER, it will function just like a M1 button, and PULL, it will function as M2. The only weird catch is you’ll have 3 USB cables coming out of the X-Arcade, so it’s messy, but super high functioning! It will also work with any USB computer or device that can play a game with a USB mouse, THE SPINNER WILL NOT FUNCTION ON A CONSOLE, IT WILL FUNCTION AS A USB MOUSE TURNING LEFT/RIGHT OR you can setup to move UP/DOWN. One or the other
