I’m new here obviously and I’m getting ready to put together my first arcade stick. Now I already have the knowledge and tools for all the cutting, drilling and wood working aspects. I just need confirmation that the parts I’m going to order are all going to function well together.
Okay so here’s my list of items, if you can just tell me if I have all the parts I’m going to need or which parts I need to order. I would also like to hear any personal experience with the Happ pushbuttons, I’ve heard some good and bad but most of what I’ve heard is rumor or “I heard from a guy who heard from a guy” type of stuff.
I’m going to be ordering all my stick parts from Lizardlick so here are my choices thus far, this stick is going to be used for SSFIV on PS3.
Sanwa JLF-TP-8T Joystick
Cthulhu PC/PS3 PCB, Complete
Sanwa 35mm Ball Top
Sanwa GT-Y(eight way restrictor gate)
As for push buttons, like I said I’m leaning towards Happ, I figure I need nine pushbuttons? Will that be enough or no? Three for L/M/H punch, Three for L/M/H kick and three for Start/Select and home, do I need more than that?
As for wiring, I’m going to buy the solderless quick disconnects from lizard lick, but for the wires I figured this stuff would do the job Hobby Engineering: Hookup Wire: 22 Gauge Solid Category
I hear solid wire is easier to work with so I would rather go with that.
So if you can just give me your opinions on the parts I’ve selected, if I’m good to go or not, what else I may or may not need etc. I would really appreciate it.
