it could use a tiny camera to sense the direction and avoid mecanical contact of the electrodes (they were subject to quick deteriorizing), but it should retain that "analogic directions" feeling. (sanwa solutions uses microswitches, so it's more akin to competition pro).
only the buttons should be a bit softer than the original ones... try play Xenon 2 without autofire with an original Tac-2 on amiga...
and lo! > perfect joystick!
