Custom Arcade Stick Questions!


#1

I have previously owned a Xbox360 super Hori EX arcade stick in the past month. I sold all my xbox360 games and accessories to buy a PS3 and have decided to make my own arcade stick for my PS3/360 . I was wondering if some experienced arcade stick owners could give me some recommendations. My previous arcade stick had modded seimetsu buttons and joystick so I am leaning towards those buttons.

Here is what I would like information on please:

What do I have to do to make it compatible with Xbox360 and PS3.

Where could I find a pre-made box with the 4 button layout.

How do people put graphics on their box that look so good (without painting).

What is the cheapest website to buy seimetsu buttons and accessories.

Thanks to anyone/everyone who responds or helps.

Easiest solution is to buy a paewang revolution. etokki.com has the stick or just the pcb.

***Where could I find a pre-made box with the 4 button layout.


4 button like Neo Geo?
I’m assuming a 8 button. Mod the Paewang with crown buttons

If you want Japanese get a TE, or custom box off the trading outlet here.
