PS2 Mayflash Programmer, SF Anniversary PS2 stick, and right-handedness

I was thinking of using a Street Fighter Anniversary stick for everything from the 2600 to the One and Switch. It has a PS2 mode, and there are many adapters from PS2 to other standards. But here's the interesting twist: I was going to buy a Mayflash 2047, aka a Playstation programmer, for one main purpose, to invert the joystick 180 degrees and swap east and west, north and south, and punches and kicks. This is so I have a right handed joystick. The arrangement on the street fighter stick is right-hand friendly. I would buy a more custom model, but I'll wait until I get more money to buy one. I want a right handed set-up with no rapid fire, combos, macros or any other cheats.

Would a Mayflash 2047 do I what I want with it? Would a Mayflash 2047 be considered tournament-illegal just because it's able to have macros and combos and rapid fire on it? Would Mayflash make a tournament legal version with only button/joystick remappings, or one with an indicator light to show when it's tournament legal.

How much ping does that Playstation reprogrammer add?

Also would the PS2-> other system adapters work, like the ones from tototek for classics, or brook to the Xbox One? What would one do for Intellivision, Colecovision, (both classic and super action, as a few games only work with one and a couple only the other only.) 5200, 7800, Astrocade, and Jaguar? Also, is there a 3DO version with the daisy chain connector? Is there any significant ping of more than 1 ms?

    The cheapest thing would be to just leave everything as is, just rotate the whole thing 180 and just rewire the buttons and joystick. 10 minute job.

    Only two downsides would be that the artwork would be upside down when your using the stick, and the start and select would be below your right palm, and easy to hit (easy fix would be to drill 2 small holes in the side for start and select)

    And because the stick will look stock, people will think your trolling them using the stick upside down.

    PS the stick has like 3 different pc b varients, and I think 2 are terrible with converters and one is half decent

    Anzhar, 1) I don't know how to do that exactly, and 2) it would ruin its collectability .) x 1/2

    If you leave start and select as they are it would look no different, and is completeley reversible

    I'll do a mock up pic to show what I mean when I'm at my computer

    ok so here goes (btw i hope im not coming across as condescending)

    so if you place the stick in your lap as standard it will look like this

    if you turn the stick around whlst in your lap it will look like this

    so what you need to do is rewire it so that it looks like this

    the process is fully reversible because all your doing is swapping the quickdisconnects from one button to another and from one direction switch to another

    like i said the only downside is that start and select will be in your way, you can always drill 2 small holes in the side and move them there and plug the current holes..............but then you got holes in the side when you revert back to normal

    if you do want to go ahead and do the rewiring and leave it completely reversible like in the pic and leave the start select where it is then its simple all you have to do is remove the back first

    then you just rearrange the wiring to suit your button layout. the following picture is from Arcade Stick Monk's tutorial and all credit goes to him

    The anniversary stick doesn't have good quick disconnects. In the one I have they were on extremely tight with heat shrink tubing around them. If you can't get them off without damaging them try unscrewing the microswitches and switching them that way if there's enough wire.

    For buttons you don't have to move around them if you don't want to. Just reconfigure controls in game.
    Time lost can never be retrieved.

    The 2 that I modded a few years back had qd's

    And yes he does not have to rewire the buttons and do it in game button config, but rewiring will save time in long run
