seriously...this is it? just hit A? alright, fine, but do i have to do it?

anyone out there know of any mods or anything that will keep this button getting tapped, but not my human hands? i've got a variety of lego technics and k'nex, so maybe i can construct some or of mini tamping machine to hit this A button.

if that doesn't work, maybe i can "pull a homer" and get one of these...

If you had some kind of k'nex lego motor, you probably could construct one. However, in the time it takes for you to make one, you probably could be done with all the spinnerbox shenanigans.

Something like this could work. If it saves you from Perfect Dark, it should be good for Pub Games.

You know you can just buy a turbo controller and rubberband the A and B buttons. You'll need to hit B every now and then when your star rating increases and when you unlock concept art and such.

I have seen fotage of a guy who made a jumping rig out of lego for oblivion looked easy enough to build and you can use it for other games to that require tedious amounts of single button pressing like C&C

yeah. i thought about that while clearing out spinner box and the card game.

i'd like to make some gear that ratios about 25:1 for A button to B button hits.

i also noticed that when i hit both buttons together it still spun, but the only issue with having a machine that hits both at the same time comes with the borrow screen. because it the B button is recognized first, then it won't take more money to bid. on a device with a ratio of A to B hits, even if the borrow screen came up, the A button would bid, bring up and screen and borrow the money in the next 2-4 hits.

yeah...i'll try to figure it one night i stumble home inebriated. i've made catapults and i just fashioned a butterfly knife that has gear "cutting spurs" on it, so i'm sure i could work something out, if i can get a motor.

like they say "with legos, anything goes"

...

...wait...that's playdoh.

Are these hard to program to make it auto press A millions of times? Also is there a specific one thats best to get?

I want to know because I think it would be easier/cheaper than a lego rig

And here I thought my Lego Robotics button pusher was original. Who knew that everyone else had the same idea.

just use this and place something on the A and B button with the A set to the highest setting and the B set to the middle.

Works like a charm for alot of games

got links to where i can get one for a good price?


i hope the developers of this game are getting word on stuff like this. you know your game must suck when people want to create robots to play the game for them.

Best. Purchase. Well, not ever, but it does rule.

i'll look into it.

i'd seriously like to get some sort of mod where i can basically tell the computer what buttons to hit. especially for that fortunes tower exploit and just have it collect whatever the first line deals out. something like:

A+RB, A, B, A, A...(repeat) deal, high bid, speed deal, collect,speed deal out the rest of the deck, continue, and repeat.

hahahahaha

I have that HORI turbo pad. Does work a treat - personally I keep the A button held down with a pile of coins blue-tak'ed together. I got mine from Play-Asia for $45/25GBP + $10/5GBP postage (yeah then Royal Mail charged me another 8 GBP as customs - 1.25 from customs, 6.75 as a Royal Mail 'processing' fee).

It's got a great D-pad, though the analog sticks are a bit too loose for some games, like FPS or driving games.

Got one of them, it's great. Bought it for Blue Dragon but helps in plenty of games, plus it's cheaper than an official controller.

Get a redheaded step child whos never played video games, give him 5 bucks and tell him to only press the A button. Problem solved with minimal money loss and finger soreness... For u anyway.

But that loud tapping drowns out the soulful melodies and generic pub background noise...
