YOUR SEARCH FOR THE LEGENDARY RF COMMANDER STOPS HERE!
ARRIVED HERE BECAUSE YOU WANT TO LOVE RAIDEN, ZERO 5 AND
TREVOR MCFUR ON THE ATARI JAGUAR BUT CARPAL TUNNEL IS TELLING
YOU IT'S NOT POSSIBLE! WELL, FINALLY HERE IS A RAPID FIRE
CONTROLLER THAT SHOWS YOU THE LOVE!
RF COMMANDER IS CRAFTED USING NOS (NEW OLD STOCK) ATARI JAGUAR
CONTROLLERS, AND A NEW TURBO CIRCUIT BOARD ESPECIALLY DESIGNED
FOR OUR BELOVED JAGUAR CONTROLLERS.
EXTERNALLY, THERE ISN'T MUCH TO TELL YOU THAT IT'S ANYTHING OTHER THAN A REGULAR ATARI JAGUAR CONTROLLER. THERE'S A SWITCH ON THE BACK TO TURN RAPID FIRE (TURBO)ON AND OFF,AN INSET ADJUSTER TO FINE TUNE THE FIRING RATE AND THERE'S AN OPTIONAL LED ON THE FRONT TO TELL YOU WHEN IT'S ACTIVATED. THE MAGIC LIES WITHIN OF COURSE. FLIP THE SWITCH TO RAPID FIRE, AND NOW WHEN YOU PRESS THE 'B' BUTTON, A VERITABLE HAIL OF FIRE ENSUES!
THE BEAST IN ACTION:
SO HOW MUCH WOULD YOU EXPECT TO PAY FOR THE ULTIMATE RAPID FIRE CONTROLLER?
THAT'S RIGHT, ONLY 65 BUCKS FOR ATARI JAGUAR SHMUP NIRVANA ($70 WITH OPTIONAL LED) BUT DON'T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. BEFORE YOU HAND OVER YOUR HARD EARNED CASH, A FEW REVIEWS:
What they are saying:
"I tested RF on my PAL/NTSC consoles and it works absolutely great. I used Raiden, McFur, Zero 5 and Mad Bodies for tests. Oh yes, you can add MadBodies to the list of RF compatible games, it's much easier to play now! It's difficult to say if rapid fire itself is faster on NTSC, because all NTSC games are naturally faster than PAL ones. For example Raiden. It's remarkable faster on NTSC machine in all aspects so fire is faster too.Nevertheless. Thanks a lot for such great piece of HW!!!"
"Anybody looking for a
rapid fire controller I highly recommend the RF Commander.
Works great and very professionally built."
the workmanship. The mod is very professionally executed, right down to having an individual serial number sticker affixed to the rear of the pad to give each and every one their own individuality. I was lucky enough to have received the 'RF001'...
I'm just glad that Danny had his ear to the ground and was listening to the Jaguars niche requirement for a dedicated Rapid Fire controller Commander. I'm really grateful to him for making something I had craved for, for years a reality - and made so well too. Even you've even had the slight inclination toward wanting such a controller, look no further, as this is a great bit of kit!"
haven't toyed with the potentiometer (is that what it is?)
yet there on the back to adjust the rate of fire, but just
going off where you had it set, the game that had the
biggest improvement was Trevor McFur. The RF Commander
pretty much turned me into a rapid-fire god with that game!
I hadn't played that game in years, but I clearly remember
how difficult it is. I first kept the rapid-fire switched
off and I hardly lasted 15 seconds before I died for the
first time. I switched on the rapid-fire and it was an
incredible improvement with just holding down the B button
to fire. It allowed the rest of my fingers to concentrate on
dodging the enemies and aiming. It was quite the experience
-- I doubt I'll ever play the game without the RF Commander
Raiden was also a pleasure to play with it, since it was tuned for it out of the box. The firing was steady and just like Trevor McFur, I lasted much longer not having played the game in a long time. Raiden is one of my favorites and the RF Commander definitely helps make it an even better and more fun game!
Phase Zero also gave it a
more steady stream of firing and did improve my game. Again,
not having adjusted anything, there could be more
improvements in there that I have not encountered.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to test this thing out. I've always wanted a rapid-fire controller and the RF Commander is well-built and delivers on its promise. The LED above the B button is great for determining whether the rapid fire is switched on or not. I'll test the adjustments on the back out a bit and get back to you on how that has changed the game play on various shooters, but I imagine it will give me just the right amount of flexibility that I want to customize the controller to the game I happen to be playing.
"Got my RF commander today... I agree with ViMaster's review of the rapid fire, and with games like Raiden unless you are genius it definitely makes you a better player. I also tried it on Cannon Fodder and that gives much more fire power too. Jools and Jops would be proud. The mod looks professional and does not require batteries which is great...Great work Danny"
"Danny was a smart
kid, but was always easily distracted. I see nothing much
has changed, except maybe less of the former, and more of

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT! SERIOUSLY THOUGH, $65 PLUS $20 ($23 to Europe)REGISTERED MAIL IS NOT A HUGE MARKUP (AND I ACTUALLY LOSE A DOLLAR OR TWO ON THE MAIL!). AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, IT TAKES A BIT OF WORK TO MAKE ONE OF THESE. I AM DOING IT MORE FOR THE LOVE THAN THE MONEY. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RESERVE ONE, EMAIL ME AT
I DON'T NORMALLY MAKE MORE THAN ONE OR TWO AT A TIME, SO WAITING TIME WILL VARY. IF I HAVE SOME ATARI JAGUAR CONTROLLERS IN STOCK, I CAN NORMALLY SEND OUT A RF COMMANDER WITHIN A FEW DAYS. IF I'M BETWEEN STOCK ORDERS, IT COULD BE A FEW MORE WEEKS. BUT I NEVER ASK FOR PAYMENT UNTIL THE FINISHED PRODUCT IS READY TO SHIP. THE PRICE WILL REMAIN $65 FOR THE REST OF 2012. AFTER THAT I WILL ASSESS ANY RISES IN COSTS.
