I really want to get moving on DC and PS2 stuff. Just trying to work off these 360 orders I have right now. Like I’ve said a hundred times it seems :).
The hard thing for me with the older systems if finding a constant supply of good controllers to use. For the 360, I get common ground madcatz pads at will from greatestsale.com and they always seem to have 1000 or so in stock.
I just orderd a bulk of 14 original psx pads to use. I build a PSX stick for a customer that one worked great with the P360. Though I’m not sure if the convertors you guys use will take a psx pad instead of a ps2 pad???
As for IL or Happ. It depends. The IL sticks cost me about 3-4 dollars more per stick. I always keep them on hand to use in case the happ ones get crappy again. I test each one very closely before it ships out, and it something seems weird with the joystick, I’ll know before it goes up. I’m hoping happ will stay consistant now.
The biggest problem with happ is, the last order was all black sticks, which could be from a new run. But if I order 10 blue ones, will they be the old crappy ones or the new ones? You never know, which is why I keep IL around just in case.
When the happs ones are good, they feel identical to me and the parts are even interchangeable between the two brands.
