My girlfriend got me a copy of SF4 when it came out. I haven’t played in a long long time, but when I started it up I got right back into it. Unfortunately, playing with the controller is hell, I can’t stand it. I started looking into buying an arcade stick; I was pretty disappointed with the prices and availability. I’m sure both are being effected by the SF4 release, but nevertheless I found this site and building my own sounds fun. I want to build two arcade sticks, and from what I’ve read here it doesn’t sound like too difficult a process. That being said, I’d love any advice or tips anyone might have. I’m looking at getting the following parts:
I already bought 2 Cthulhu board’s. (Thanks Toodles these sound awesome for all us PS3 people.)
22 Sanwa OBSN-30 Pushbutton with Vertical Microswitch
2 Sanwa JLF-TP-8T Ball Handle Joystick, 4 & 8-Way Adjustable
If anyone has any critiques of those parts please let me know.
One thing I don’t know is if I’ll need to buy the wire separately or not, but I don’t imagine that to be a big deal one way or the other.
Do I need to buy any kind of grease for the joystick, or should it come ready to go?
I haven’t made any real decisions on the case yet, but there’s a ton of examples out there that I’m still browsing through.
Anything I left out?
