I bought a Mayflash “3 in 1” expecting a relatively sensitive and responsive arcade stick experience…
I was horribly, horribly wrong. The buttons! *THE BUTTONS!!! *
Dear god! Never have I sucked so much as Order-Sol in GGXX:AC! The buttons didn’t always respond and the presence of Eight buttons has caused me to miss the simplest of combos.
There is Hope…
The Good thing which redeems the stick is that it has a versatile PCB that solves two of my problems with one stone(PS2/PC)! Also, It’s not a half bad case.
It just requires some work on my part. I hate work. Yet, The best way to get things done is to do them yourself.
…but herein lies the problem. Buttons seem like a simple deal, Snap some sanwa’s…solder some wires… and BAM! Back to Order-Sol beasting!
Joystick seems more difficult, It seems a bit more… touchy than the buttons.
Unfortunately, the last time I soldered something was back in … I don’t even remember! I still have my soldering iron and stuff though…
This inexperience leaves me with a few questions:
From what I can see… 30mm sanwa snap-ins should fit the case “unmodded” but the LS-32-01 that is on it’s way looks like it might need some modification. Is there anyone with experience with these buttons/joystick and the Mayflash board that can give me any heads-up before taking on the task at hand?
I want a 6 button setup… but alas, I seem to have 8 slots! What do I use to plug in those spare holes?
Solderless is an option… but is it a good option?
Do Green and Blue clash too much?!
Sorry for all the questions, and yes I did search the forums before making this post. Also, Yes I do have a weird sense of humor.
