Hello Techtalk. Apologies in advance if this isn’t the correct thread or my questions have already been answered. I’m a scrub lurker that comes here rarely and I finally decided I want to try a Stickless Arcade controller. After consulting some of the links around here and googling like mad I ordered some parts from Focus Attack, but I want to be sure I got everything I need, as I have some questions I need to ask about modding and such. Bear in mind I’m an idiot with this stuff so I’ll need to have things explained to me like I’m 5.
Everything I got:
PS360+ (I heard this has built in SOCD cleaning?)
4pc PCB mount (although I will later consider a custom case with PCB mounting built in)
USB for PCB to Neutrik
USB for Neutrik to console
18 x .110 Quick Disconnect Wire (two of which are for backup purposes)
1 x 10 connection Daisy Chain GND wire
3 x 3 connection Daisy Chain GND wire (one of which is for backup purposes)
1 x 30 mm Sanwa OSBF Button
15 x 24 mm Sanwa OSBF Buttons (one extra for reason explained below)
That is everything I need, right? All came to under 140 USD which seems alright. I am not getting a case atm b/c I am not entirely sure I wish to go with the conventional “Hitbox” layout yet. Also this way if I decide I don’t like the stickless route after all I can then just buy a joystick and complete a conventional arcade stick.
One thing I’d like to make sure of, the PS360+ supports wireless headsets on 360 (namely the official M$ Bluetooth/XBL hybrid), yes? I found one thread on the subject that seemed to imply so, but it doesn’t hurt to make sure I don’t need to buy the extra physical headset port for the PS360.
Now the more important thing, I saw a tut for building custom sticks on YT and it seems all you have to do is connect GND wires to a prong on each of the buttons (then to PS360) and then have the other wiring connected to the other prong (and to PS360). However in addition I wish to have an extra button I can place somewhere else on the stick, that will do the same function as one of the 8 main buttons (I will prolly bind to PPP or KKK). How would I go about doing this? A poster above seems to touch on this and mentions “splitting wire” but I hope it isn’t too hard or anything…
