Competition pro is a holy fine piece of junk me say. I have one in my collection,
my god how could it be possible to play with ...this... ?
@Retro-nerd : I kill lionheart in every mode with Gamepad only. The 2nd button is not useful here.
I agree with Ironclaw, those who want to achieve precision gameplay want everything but NOT a comp pro.
There are many japanese gamepads with small sticks and using coin-op style switches for very accurate play to sell. The old joysticks are plain bad. Many old games had crappy playability, hence a good pad is needed to bear it.
Best players use the best pads
