After going through 80-100 hours of fighting games (MvC2, SSF2, and now SFIV), my Saitek P2500 d-pad broke off in the middle of a fight. I am now on the fence on whether I should make a stick or buy a saitek P880 (or do both…?).
If I do buy a stick, my friend told me that I could salvage the old PCB on the gamepad and use it for the stick, which is good, so I would only have to buy whatever is I have to buy to make it. I’ve been eyeballing the Sanwa JLF and Sanwa OBSF-30 buttons.
Anyone has any insight as to what I should do? I’m leaning towards buying a gamepad and using it for the next month or so while I get my act together to make the stick (right now I’m on finals, don’t have time because I need to study). Also if anyone can offer any help on what parts I need to buy and maybe a guide on how to proceed, that’d be great. (I ask for this, because I’m a complete noob and I can’t find a guide that states which parts I need).
What has me confused the most is which of these I should get?
Sanwa JLF-TP-8T Ball Handle Joystick, 4 & 8-Way Adjustable
Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK Ball Handle Joystick, 4 & 8-Way Adjustable
Sanwa OBSF-30 Pushbutton
Sanwa OBSN-30 Pushbutton
Thanks in advance for any help.
