I don't play with my stock CD32 controller any more, I'm generally OK with the layout and feel but the build quality isn't very good. The clips under the pad were broken when I received it and I had to MacGyver together a fix using a paperclip. Also for some reason most of the time it's stuck in "two button mode", and I find my Honeybee and my PS2 controller (using the PSX to DB9 adapter) more comfortable anyway.
Never had it stuck in two button mode before. I do however miss the rubber pad that doesn't come with every CD32 pad. Make the plastic d-pad soft to touch.
