    Does anyone make buttons like these anymore? They seem more lightweight and responsive.
    What you could do is just swap out the microswitches of the stock Namco buttons with Sanwa SW-68 switches
    Take apart and clean the old buttons in some warm soapy water, dry them, place the new Sanwa switches in there and rewire the buttons.

    Just for the record I think replacing the buttons on this stick defeats the entire purpose of owning it. I was just asking if anyone makes buttons like this that I could use in my other sticks.

    After a day of playing though, the joystick definitely leaves something to be desired.

    Picked up a Namco stick last week, been wanting one for awhile. I really like the buttons, PS14GN>Namco Button>PS14G imo. I swapped in sanwa and seimitsu microswitches, the sanwa felt slightly better so i went with those. The stick def needed to go, i wanted to keep the stick appearance as stock as possible, so no LS32. Most ppl put in JLF's im not a fan of JLF in general so i decided to give the hayabusa a try. Installing it was just like a JLF basically. Had to cut out a bigger section of plastic to fit the haya. Obviously in stock form the haya is too big, the case wont close. Im going to have the stock haya shaft shortened by 8mm so it will sit at 24mm when mounted with no spacers. This is being done at my job, and they are backed up so i have no idea when i will be getting it back.
    For the meantime I tried installing the Namco shaft and actuator as a temporary thing. The Namco actuator is too wide and binds up when inputting diagonals. So i modified the haya actuator and cut it down to the namco actuator length. I sanded it down afew times until it fit properly. It was alittle too long after my first trim(pic). It was still binding up alittle so i swapped out the pressure spring base with the namco stick just to try it. Ended up making a difference. When it was all said and done the stick was mounted at correct height.It feels very stiff and short, ive done shaft swap mods on other sticks with the jlf/ls56, and the haya with this mod feels alittle off. I tested it out on ST and I was able to do all my stuff, its def good enough as a place holder until my short shaft is done.
    Thought id share the install incase anybody was curious in doing it.


    This is the stock haya mounted in the namco



    Looks like When you move your stick the screws show?

    you might catch a glimpse of a corner of a screw during execution. Not a big deal to me since i dont look at my hands when i play. I used to original dustwasher, not sure if the standard sanwa washer is alittle bigger and would cover more.

    Still, it is rather well done to keep the stick looking mostly stock while installing a Sanwa JLF or in this case a Hori hayabusa

    Anyone use this stick stock on a PS4 ? I see the Brook PS2 - PS3/4 adapters, and was curious if that would work, or if I would be better off replacing the PCB to use this on my PS3 and PS4. Thanks guys !

    Yes if it's your only one I say keep it stock, the xtokki and Brooks adapters will take care of your console and pc needs. I have a second namco and that one is completely modified.

    Hey man what a coincidence, just a few days ago I finally got one as well! This stick has been eluding me for years but it was well worth the wait. I will change the stick to a JLF but I'm not drilling the metal CP, instead I'm attaching the stick like I did the Tekken 6 wireless stick mod. Those T6 sticks are holding rather well, no complaints.

    @electricgrave the issue with using the Jlf in stock configuration is that the namco case isnt very deep and the jlf will not fit once it is mounted at proper height. You wither have to use some of the stock namco stick parts like i did for the hayabusa, have a custom shaft made that is shorter or have the jlf shaft sit higher than the standard 23 -24 mm.

    I opted to use washers with longer screws when I dremeled in a Hayabusa. Future project could possibly be to make the bottom plate hinged and sit on rubber thumb screws for fast access and have some grip if used on arcade top.

    Thanks for the heads up. Come to think of it; The shafts on the Tekken 6 wireless and the EX sticks fit in the sanwa casing pretty good IIRC, I could try that.

    how far does the shaft stick out? Looks higher than the standard 23-24mm

    The sticks are the same, I think 24mm. What happens is that with the bat put is higher than with the ball.
