    Default Control panel questions

    Alright, I'm looking to design my own control panel for a arcade cabinet. I'd like this to be compatible for as many games as possible. This leads me to two questions.

    1) What games allow two simultaneous players that both need two sticks?

    2) Do any trackball games actually need more than one button?

    REALLY need to go over to www.arcadecontrols.com and ask this

    TONS of trackball games require more than one button, but you don't need dedicated buttons for the trackball, it's easy to use player one's buttons.
    Missile command alone uses three trackball buttons.

    Smash TV uses 2 player's with 2 joysticks each.

    Or at least our own Arcade forum!

    Smash TV
    Karate Champ
    Vindicators I/II

    There are probably some other 2 player tank-type games that I'm not coming up with.
