10/08/2013: I HAVE NOW LOVINGLY CONSTRUCTED 23 OF THESE CONTROLLERS AND I THINK NOW IS THE TIME TO TURN OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE. I WILL KEEP THIS PAGE UP HOWEVER FOR HISTORICAL PURPOSES, SINCE OVER TIME SOME WILL CHANGE HANDS AND NEW OWNERS MIGHT BE CURIOUS ABOUT THE ORIGIN. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, DROP ME A LINE!
A pic of the very last controller- C023, from an obviously happy customer (",)
is the list of all units sold
If any of these have been resold, drop us a line. It would be interesting to know where each one ends up :)

YOUR SEARCH FOR THE LEGENDARY T2K COMMANDER FOR THE ATARI JAGUAR STOPS HERE!
YOU HAVE ARRIVED HERE BECAUSE YOU LOVE TEMPEST 2000, AND YOU KNOW THE BEST WAY TO ENJOY THIS ATARI JAGUAR MASTERPIECE IS WITH A ROTARY CONTROLLER. NOT JUST ANY OLD CONTROLLER COBBLED TOGETHER WITH WORN OUT INDY 500 PADDLES. OH NO! THE DISCERNING JAGUAR OWNER DEMANDS A SMOOTH, DETENTLESS SPINNER. A HEAVY DUTY 36 PULSE PER REVOLUTION ENCODER. AND GOOD LOOKS!
THE T2K COMMANDER IS CRAFTED USING NOS (NEW OLD STOCK) ATARI JAGUAR CONTROLLERS, AND NEW 36 PPR ROTARY ENCODERS. NEW PARTS SUCH AS THE SPINNER AND ROCKER BUTTON ARE CAST IN RESIN, WITH A CHOICE OF COLOURS AVAILABLE.
YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING:
DARK KNIGHT. RED ALERT. HORNET
IF YOU WISH, YOU CAN ALSO MIX AND MATCH THESE COLOURS, FOR INSTANCE YOU COULD ORDER A BLACK SPINNER WITH RED ROCKER BUTTON AND BLANKING PLUG. MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE IS THE RED ALERT, SINCE IT HAS THAT ATARI JAGUAR RED AND BLACK THEME. OTHER FEATURES INCLUDE THE SPINNER ON THE RIGHT, AND A 3-IN-1 FIRE BUTTON ON THE LEFT. WHA? THAT'S RIGHT, THE 'A', 'B' AND 'C' BUTTONS THAT WERE ON THE RIGHT ARE NOW COMBINED INTO ONE BUTTON ON THE LEFT! PRESS DOWN FOR SUPERZAPPER, PRESS UP FOR JUMP AND PRESS THE CENTRE FOR FIRE.
A COUPLE OF SHORT CLIPS TO DEMONSTRATE THE ROCKER BUTTON AND THE SPINNER:
SO HOW MUCH WOULD YOU EXPECT TO PAY FOR THE ULTIMATE ROTARY CONTROLLER?
THAT'S RIGHT, ONLY 99 BUCKS FOR TEMPEST 2000 NIRVANA. BUT DON'T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. BEFORE YOU HAND OVER YOUR HARD EARNED CASH, A FEW REVIEWS:
they are saying:
"In conclusion, I really like the T2K Commander! This is simply the best rotary hack I've used. It's fantastic spinning with my right hand, like "God" intended. This has made me enjoy Tempest all over again!"
"Danny's T2K Commander rotary controller is really AWESOME Just had some friends over and they tried out the new control, its a blast! Thanks Danny"
"Well, I finally got to test out this controller and I have to say it is amazing! Feels smoother and the control seems easier. My scores went up using it, also. Gotta love it!
"Def jump on this for all you guys on the fence. Its worth it and the price of the regular old fashion rotary on ebay usually goes for way more than this.
worth every penny"
"Wow! , it is very nice to play T2K with it. I can say that using my right hand for the rotary seems very natural and enjoyable to play that way! I think since I am a righty(as most people are), it is less tedious(requires less mental concentration & physical effort) to more precisely control my ship around the top of the web. The controller is professionally hacked well & looks good. I love the custom made buttons, and molded picture of a T2K ship in the rotary dial."
is an amazing product from Oz ... this is the best
hack I've bought, far superior to what I cobbled together after 15
years of tinkering.
Cheers, thank you mate! This is a wonderful device and everyone who
feels even mildly about the Jag should buy a few to play on one of the
best games ever...before they're gone.
... T2K scores through the roof!
"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 the latter"
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT! SERIOUSLY THOUGH, $99 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 T2K 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 $99 FOR THE REST OF 2012. AFTER THAT I WILL ASSESS ANY RISES IN COSTS.
