So... Buttons on my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro are slowly but steadily dying.  Yes, I did review the YouTube video on how to repair it and no, I am not one for that amount of tinkering.  Much like I don't like tinkering with the Superiority crud in this game.  I like to take things apart and see how they work but only to a certain extent.  When the dude in the video started having itty bitty pieces fall off that require reassembly, I said "no way in heck will I do that." 

 

Anyway, last time this happened, I bought a new one.  I figure one every 1.5 to 2 years is about right.  

 

This time around, I am just not willing to do it.  I have resorted to using the keyboard + joystick and that sucks.  But in the current iteration of the game, I just cannot bring myself to spring for the money.  Even though the $ don't go to WG by any means, it's the fact that I, like many others, just refuse to sink more money into this game until they do what the community has asked for time and time again.  The only game I use a joystick for is this and I just like it so much more than keyboard+mouse.  But if I have to resort to that, so be it.  

 

/soapbox

 

Anyway, quite some time ago, some of you had given up on this particular joystick and were willing to part with it.  I will pay for shipping, but that's about it.  On principal, I won't pay for the unit itself cause enuf is enuf ya know?

Would this work for other equipment? Maybe a vid card? I need a new vidcard, but with the current state of the game, I just don't want to spend money. On principle, ya know?

I'm on my 4th one , this last one has lasted for more than 2 years. I could send it to you if you would like. I don't use it anymore.

Milk, milk, lemonade

round the corner fudge is made!

Push the button, pull the chain

Out comes a chocolate choo-choo train
