I’ve been insanely happy playing SF4 with my Sanwa’d-out Madcatz SE Fightstick, but I need another stick for my friends to play on, and lord knows it’s impossible to find one right now.
I just searched my mother’s basement and found one of my old Dreamcast Agetec sticks, and it seems like the stick and buttons are in pretty good shape still. Is it worth it to pull the guts out of the thing and put in a Xbox 360 PCB? My Dreamcast is long gone, and I’m anticipating MvC2 being released on Xbox eventually, so I don’t think I’ll have any use for the thing, except selling it on eBay.
Also, is this going to be a really difficult mod for a beginner? I haven’t done anything more complicated than swapping the stick and the buttons on my SE–I’m looking for a fun little project, not something that’s gonna require ten different tools and pulling my hair out. Is it just a matter of cracking open a cheap controller for a PCB and soldering it to the stick?
