Sega Mission Stick – Continued

While removing the throttle wheel from the stick unit I noticed two small plastic rings connected by a spring jumping away. It took me quite some time to figure out the correct position when assembling the stick. In case you encounter this problem too, this is how the rings have to sit on the throttle wheel:

Unlike the Twin-Stick the Mission Stick can be used with most of the games, especially when they are compatible with the 3D Control Pad or the Arcade Racer Joystick. Only very few games are able to detect the Mission Stick or make use of the throttle wheel though. A couple of compatibility lists can be found (e.g. this list at GameFAQs) but none of those seems to be complete. Here are a couple of compatible games:

1. Black Fire
The Mission Stick is not detected in the settings screen but the throttle wheel is supported to move the helicopter up and down.

2. CONGO The Movie – The Lost City of Zinj
The Mission Stick is not detected in the settings screen but the game plays very well with it.
