This is my first post on the Shoryuken forums and I am fed up with my Xbox360 controller after 2 weeks of playing (I got fed up with the d-pad about 2 minutes after I touched it so I’ve been using the thumbstick… anyone else use that?).
I signed up to the forums and all and I KNOW I should be using the search function but its telling me that I have to wait 2147483647 seconds before I can search… which is about 68 years so ANYWAYS…
Can I get a couple helpful links to some guides on building your own arcade stick? I can work with wood and do anything physical but I’m a software guy when it comes to computers and as such, I know very little about circuit boards. I plan on ordering my parts from Sanwa, but I’d like to start reading up on this stuff so I can be ready by spring break to make my own stick.
And again, I know there are probably plenty of threads like this but the search function seems to be malfunctioning and I am tired of weird analog trigger buttons and mini joystick
And also, if anyone is willing to answer a few basic questions for me, that would be awesome.
1.) Is basically what I’m doing remapping the thumbstick and buttons off a 360 controller circuit board to the joystick and buttons that I will be ordering? (in a casing)
2.) Soldering is not a problem, but is there any other tools that I should plan on having? (not counting those needed to shape the casing, which I have)
Thanks in advance.
