Hi everyone. My friend has expressed a disinterest in using his Xbox controllers D-pad anymore for Blazblue. He practices on his xbox but when playing with us, he uses a PS3 controller. So it messes with his inputs somewhat with the switching and how bad he hates the Xbox d-pad.
So, we are looking to help him get a better pad for use with both systems. Price is a factor and is probably the main reason he isn’t getting a stick. I did fail to mention to him about the standard edition stick that is available. I know it isn’t very good but I figure it will last till later on, when he wants to replace the buttons and gate stick.
But if he doesn’t want a stick, what options do you think I can recommend to him? The fightpad is possible but the reviews on newegg are not very good and I have searched and read opinions on it. But they are cheap and I believe we can dual mod it.
I also read about the new hori controller but that seems to be very hard to dual mod. Making it not an ideal project since I will likely be the one doing the mechanical stuff (I am just better at it).
Are there computer controllers that can be dual modded? I believe I have heard some of them are quite nice.
He also wondered if there was a converter for a PS2 controller to PS3/Xbox. I think he said he found one but it was from an unknown third party and didn’t want to spend on uncertain quality.
For those that aren’t aware, Blazblue only uses 4 buttons, so a 6 button controller on the faceplate isn’t necessary.
Quality, price and ease of dual modding are the most important for him. He can’t access a computer recently (it broke ) so I am making this for him and I do want to help him out.
So I highly appreciate any help you can give me in helping my friend. Sticks aren’t out of the question necessarily but I know they can quickly get out of his price range. I don’t mind doing some manual labor to get it all running if it is something a normal person can do.
