I was advised to check out this site. My title is somewhat misleading. I really enjoy Marvel Vs Capcom 2. I played it in the arcade, and when it came out for the Dreamcast, I played it there as well. I used the official Sega DC 6 button arcade stick, and as far as I am concerned, it is an amazing thing.
I am new here so I can soak up technical knowledge in regard to Neo Geo 4 button configurations. I am in the process of either ordering a fully “consoleized” MVS or doing the work myself. What is missing is an affordable arcade style sticks. Short of me buying a defunct arcade standup and cannibalizing the parts I want, I will be limited to DIY.
I have no issue with woodworking, and no issue with wiring. but since the MVS is a 4 button (+ start & coin) I have technical questions. I will be lurking until I find my info or can’t and suck it up and ask the experts.
I am torn to IF I want to make a 6 button universal or stay specific to the 4 button neo geo.
I am off to a slow start. I am totally out of useful lumber at the house, and will need to buy some more. I have 2 potential routes for the display top of the controller. One involves 3d images on lexan, and the other would be inlayed wood veneers in the MVS arcade style of red and white stripes with a black border. Expect photos once I get rolling.
Thanks all for being here. I know the info I am looking for exists, but I also know from a brief overview that MVS/Neo-Geo systems are not exactly the most popular thing.
