I’m dying to play Super Pac Man and the others and other 4 way Mame games. Is the only true way to get proper control buying a x arcade or some other pre made arcade stick and then modding it out with a true 4 way stick. It sure seems that way. I’ve been wanting to properly play for over decade yet every where I look I can’t find a pre made stick that will do it justice. I get why most are for fighting games and need 8 way stick. But jesus seems crazy to me that at least there would be one option for true 4 way and 2 way play. You got x arcade charging up to $200 for a controller and their slogan is “Xgaming doesn’t settle and neither should you.” yea right up to where you want to sell me stuff with knock off parts. Seriously $200 and you can’t put in cherry switches you cheap …Anyway do you have any thoughts on this and a solution. Paradise Arcade Shop has cherry switches for $1.40. Ultrimarc sells tracballs and spinners(for like tempest or Tron proper controls). But no one place offers a true experience from what I can tell.
Also last few days I been looking around. I see it’s bascially a DIY hobby it seems like. Every single person damn near anyway says they replace this or that from x arcade they buy. Then I came across this place and see loads of knowledge about such things. I’m 45 I remember the glory days of old and wanting to throw something out the window because controls suck wasn’t part of that glory.
I sent out two PM’s on building or modding an xarcade or something and I see or read I think you have a sale section where maybe just maybe someone modded something for true 4 way and I could just buy that. I mean really I’d buy something just for pac man types games alone , I don’t care about being able to play fighting games. Not that big a deal I’ll use xbox controller plugged into pc for that stuff. But don’t torture me with utter crap pac man controls. You’re killing my childhood x arcade.
