Hey all, new here.
Here’s what I’m looking to do and want some suggestions:
I need a blank iL compatible 2-Player, 6+1 or 6+2 button (linear US SF2 plus an SNK lower left “A” Button OR upper right “D” button) control panel preferably on the heavier side (might weight it down afterward) to prevent lifting when playing with my more “expressive” fighting game friends.
For the life of me I can’t find a place that just sells good layout blank panels. I’m going to throw in iL competition parts (convex buttons) to make a good US-feel stick. Finish doesn’t really matter. Plexi top would be nice but not necessary.
I’d build it myself if I had the facilities and the faculties, but I am quite short on both. I’d appreciate any advice/direction out there.
Also, side question:
Anyone have any experience/success with the Xin Mo adapters? I haven’t quite decided what board I’m dropping in yet. I want something MAME ready using Windows Joystick/Gamepad functionality (i.e. not Keyboard emulation) to prevent ghosting in and make it compatible with SSF4: AE (PS3 compatibility wouldn’t hurt either).
This is the layout I’m thinking of, I’d appreciate your thoughts. The Buttons labels are based off 2 of the Chuthlu boards as suggested here.
EDIT EDIT: I’m already thinking about making it wider overall for more palm room on either side.
EDIT EDIT EDIT: Updated the diagram, more palm room.
