    What is this about PS4 Pro's having joysticks randomly disconnect or drop inputs because it doesn't hold a steady 5v on the usb line?

    Use a external powered USB hub

    that seems like a really stupid thing to have to do with the more expensive version of a new state of the art system.

    it Bypass the issue of the USB ports on the PS4 Pro not holding a Steady 5v.

    Its a common problem with all consoles with USB ports not just the PS4 Pro.
    The regular PS4, Xbox One, Xbox One S, and all models of the PS3 and Xbox 360 has in some form or another similar issues.

    it usually comes from someone who mod/dual-mod their stick and added a crap ton of LEDs.

    You think it's stupid but bypassing the issue all together is the easier solution.
    Using a powered USB Hub is also smart to use at tournaments, spare the console from unnecessary wear and tear from multiple people just yanking out USB cords without a care

    There been tournaments where people made USB extenders just to avoid wear and tear on consoles.

    I'm actually surprised that hubs/extensions aren't used more often at tournaments. USB type A ports aren't bulletproof, and repairing them once damaged on a main board can be risky business. All it takes is one salty crybaby yanking out their stick and POW.

    I remember there was discussion that tournaments should at least use small USB extensions taped down to the table for players to plug their arcade sticks into.

    I'm considering just putting a powered USB extension on the setup but if you're doing like the a stream you can always have a stage manager for them to plug the stick in for you.

    Random question:
    What's the deal with Sanwa's yellow bat-top? They made them back in the day, but stopped? Or was it limited edition to begin with?
    I have custom builds in mind that would look awesome with a yellow color-scheme (for the parts), but I'm a bat-top user, and not having a great selection of standard bat-top colors available really throws a wrench in the plans...

    So @FreedomGundam , firstly, as far as I know the yellow colored bat top was not in any way ever planned as a limited edition. Now, I've heard two reasons given for why the yellow bat top was discontinued. The first is that it was deemed to be a poor (and it is) color match to other yellow colored Sanwa parts and they just binned it. The other reason I've heard is that there was found to be some toxic chemical in the process of making it that weren't used in the other colors and they couldn't do that color any other way and binned it. Either of these sound semi-plausible. The second perhaps a bit less so as while something like cadmium can be used for yellow (and red) pigments it's not the only way to get a yellow color AND if your goal is to not expose people making your stuff to toxic shit you're probably going to avoid cadmium from the jump. If I really had to guess I would say it's a little of column 'a' (poor match), a little from column 'b' (something wrong with the process) and a general lack of demand. I would also say that if you're looking for one of these 'Good luck'. They're really rare and, just for reference, the one I had and sold on the trading outlet went for, if memory serves me correctly, $40. You're probably going to have an easier time getting creative with a white bat top and some vinyl dye. 3D printing might also be something to look into.

    @Nobus3r1 ver. 2.0
    Awesome, thanks for the background.
    I guess if it really didn't match the other Sanwa parts, it makes sense. Though I vaguely remember reading that none of the Sanwa or Seimitsu yellow ball-tops nor buttons really match each other perfectly either.

    Found an old post from 7 1/2 years ago from @rtdzign saying that he couldn't vinyl dye a bat-top (here), so that option might be out the window. Maybe down the line, I might try my luck with fabric dye with a white bat-top, for the sake of experimentation.

    I've already re-planned my projects to use standard available colors, so I guess that's that.

    I actually have pics of my attempt to vinyl dye a bat top (see below). At least I think I used vinyl dye. Might have been fabric dye (whichever it was is currently sitting on a shelf in my old roommates garage). Key point was to apply acrylic lacquer on top (this is why my bat top is super shiny). I did experience a little flaking but I attribute this more to the fact that my palms secrete Xenomorph level acid instead of sweat than there actually being an issue with either the dye or the lacquer. Your mileage may vary.
