Making a custom PAD


#1

I am not talking about a custom stick but a custom made pad especially for fighting games.
Anyone here with experience in that? Any advice would be appreciated.

Custom pad ? - like molding plastic and programming a pcb ? - i don’t think anyone’s gone that route yet.

If you wanted a dual modded pad, that is possible (I’ve not experienced it, but its offered by another user named Gummowned.

look up ben heck, he has done some custom pad.

and other crazy system modding.

I was toying with that idea some time ago, I would have done the case with wood, crafting a large case (relative to a pad anyway) not unlike the TI-92 calculator (for those who remember).
As for the directions, there’s this:

As I’m not a pad player myself, I’ll let others complete the project :slight_smile:

Where did you find that d pad?

I want my DualShock 3 to work on the 360. Is that possible?

@crhustle: search on starcab.net or arcadeshop.de

Someone posted a thread asking about this a while ago anddidn’t really get anywhere. It would be very, very hard to do, you need to mold plastic (assuming you want a comfortable shape) and build/program a pcb. Even Ben Heck, who probably has more exp than most in these things, makes a prototype first, pushing the cost up. Big companies can spend the money on prototypes knowing they’re going to make millions of pads, but for one pad…

Thanks I may consider looking into making one of these also.
