In the little research into building a Arcade Stick I've done I have seen this forums name come up a ton; so I thought I'd come get some help from y'all. I'm basically looking to build a Arcade Stick for the PS4 port of a rhythm game called Hatsune Miku Future Tone. Ideally I want it to look as close as the actual arcade game controller as possible while being able to comfortably fit in my lap. I'd like it to be able to navigate the PS4 dashboard too.
Actual arcade cabinet controller:
The multicolored bar at the top is a touchpad for drag notes on the arcade version of the game. In the PS4 port you can remap buttons, so I'm thinking having L1 and R1 buttons above the buttom buttons (triangle, x etc). The L1 and R2 buttons need to be easy to hit though, but also smaller than the buttom buttons.
Most of these come closer to the DS4 layout rather than the arcade layout I'd like though.
Here's some gameplay too:
I need to be able to reach the buttons pretty quickly.
I have no clue how I'm going to go about doing this so I'd really appreciate any help you guys can give me.
Thanks in advance.
