About a week ago I wanted to buy a Hori EX2 arcade stick for my Xbox 360 but realized it wasn’t fully what I wanted. So I decided to google around and I found this forum. I have gone through every page of the “Custom Stick Gallery” and realized, I think I can just make my own. I just want to make a small American Street Fighter style stick. I am serious about making my first stick and if it ends well, I would like to make more. I have never done any woodwork but my dad has all of the tools I would need so that isn’t a problem. It seems like a fun experience but before I waste my money on the wrong things I wanted to check with you guys first.
Stuff to buy:
3x Black Happ Competition Pushbutton with Horizontal Microswitch
5x Red Happ Competition Pushbutton with Horizontal Microswitch
1x White Happ Competition Pushbutton with Horizontal Microswitch
1x Black Happ 8-Way Competition Joystick
?x .187 Crimp On Quick Connects
1x Barrier Strip
(All from Lizardlick)
1x Wired Xbox 360 Controller
This isn’t including the wires… I don’t know what type of wires I need to get.
I have seen the diagrams and I have a basic idea of what is going on. I got different colored buttons to change the outside ring alternating black/red for the attack buttons, a white button for the guide, and two red buttons for Back and Start.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I can’t wait to get started on this and thank you for your time.
