    Lots of interesting observations - (spinner jumper!) xinput makes it into 2 xbox360 controllers in windows. Should be remappable within FX3 from there, but i dont know what that would mean to FX3 if two buttons were on one controller and the other 2 were on another.
    Thanks Narc. I will check out the review.

    Great to hear, enjoy!

    Updated the original post. Added a separate script for those who just want nudging.

    It's interesting to see your layout, it's very different from mine. I've swapped the physical positions of the trackball mouse buttons with the programmable ones so that the programmable ones are the furthest back and I use them for one set of flippers. I have another set of flipper buttons on top next to other buttons for nudging, plus the controls you need to play TPA. For Zen tables, I changed the Zen in-game mappings to match TPA's, so everything is consistent for me.
    I've also been playing around with other brands of arcade buttons and switches. X-Arcade's stuff is ok, but there are better choices out there. GroovyGameGear has some especially nice buttons in several styles, my favourites being their CLASSX buttons which have a MUCH better feel over the stock X-Arcade ones. The CLASSX buttons work with regular microswitches of various activation weights or two types of leaf switches. Good stuff.

    It's good to find another pinhead using a Tankstick. You play with it on your lap, right? Like a reeeaal man?
    Hey dmil, what type of CLASS X buttons do you recommend using with the Tankstick? The Groovy Soft Touch, the Micro-Leaf or the True-Leaf Pro. I want to order a couple to test out as side flipper buttons to see if I like them better than the stock X-Arcade ones.
