Finished my first custom arcade stick


#1

I just finished my first arcade stick. There were too many button layouts to choose from. I had a hard time choosing since I play a lot of different genres of games, so since I had some extra parts laying around I decided to use them all, why not right?

The wiring is a mess inside though. Not all buttons are functioning at the same time, various button layouts are activated by switches located at the back (5 different layout choices total); luckily the hacked PCB was able to handle it. Let me know what you think.

How many games that?


#3

So, do you have 3 sticks for analog sticks? How’d you manage to do that? Also, there’s a sticky at the top for this, you may want to post this there…


#4

So this the final design of your Case?
I remember you make Post showing which design for us to choose.


#5

Yeah, I recall this design, but I don’t think a case with that many holes will catch on.


#6

Yes, here is Thread.

does the pink button blow the stick up?

just askin’ <.<…


#8

Yeah, how’d you manage to actually fit three Happ sticks in that case? It must be a hellua big in there. Which is interesting, to say the least.


#9

What PCB is handle this?


#10

Maybe it’s just a special function button that he didn’t wanna forget.


#11

^
maybe it really blows the stick up.

o_o… can you imagine playing a fighting game and pressing it by accident. that would definately throw the opponent off his game.


#12

Maybe this was his plan all along. Or maybe to get them laughing senseless at how wacky it is.


#13

If you move the sticks and buttons in a certain sequences you can end the earth.

So if you play multiple games instead of creating a crazy design just why not make a slide out panel? Or just make seperate sticks cause that looks… eh, I can’t even describe that looks like a bomb.


#14

I smell 3d render. It is not physically possible to mount some of those components, knowing the internal dimensions. Happ Ultimates never came in pink.


#15

Copy and Paste Buttons.
Laugh.


#16

Finally, a joystick for multi-limbed beings.


#17

Ha, funny how someone figures out its a fake by knowing what colors Happ has. But ya, I was having fun with rendering and figured I may as well go out with one of them just for kicks. Thought some of you would have a laugh at it as well.

So ya, it’s not real, its a 3d rendering. That’s also why I didn’t want to post it on the sticky.


#18

I didn’t want you to answer my questions anyway.
They were not meant to be real.
Laugh.

But I do want to see a real one of this.
Even if had to modify a lot of the parts to make fit.


#19

I was totally fooled at first, You sneaky bastard slipped one by me.

But seriously is someone going to deactivate the bomb o_o?


#20

I cannot describe my initial reaction to seeing this

Bafflement perhaps.
