Is it possible to make an arcade stick using a PS1/PS2 analogue stick? I've searched around and can't seem to find any information on this. I'm thinking about stripping a ps2/ps1 pad, mapping the buttons to one of my old stick and adding some height to the analog stick to make it look like a reguar arcade stick, has anyone done this before?
I ask because whenever I occasionally use the analogue stick when playing Super Turbo or Alpha 2 it seems far more responsive than a pad or regular micro-switch arcade stick, I can pull off really complex movements more consistently. The only issue is the reaction speed when using the anologue with my thumb because the throw from neutral to any direction is too wide, that's the only disadvantage.
