    Wow, I didn't expect this [thread] as a response.
    I was expecting a infraction or a "Hey F$#k off Dark Sakul" or somethign to that remark.

    I did think you all felt this strongly over 2 less buttons

    ....

    Can we just agree to disagree Watch this Video, and bring about world peace?

    <3 6 button layouts. I have three Namcos, four Agetecs, and have modded most of my sticks to be 6 button.

    Couple pics of my massive six button stick. 3" tall, 9" deep, and 28" wide.
    made from a single piece of .074" cold rolled steel. Sadly, I haven't made a bottom for it yet.
    Powder coated to be textured.

    I always figured the 1P layout was to keep the elbow in, or rather, to work better as a layout when your elbow is forced in (because of the 2P person right next to you). The 2P layout seems more ergonomic.

    So it's confusing why the 1P layout is often chosen for single-player panels. Maybe people got used to the 1P side, or they just didn't think about it and figured 1P was the dominant design rather than the compromised one. Anyone know for sure?

    lol it is butt-ish but the layout is better than it appears the select button is a hori low profile so its not really in the way. The button used to record matches in TT but it could have been in a better spot

    I also want to know about that mega drive I have been searching google and I'm getting nothing
