@torta , My joystick installer is Stanley T Escolano of Salinas California. He built my fight stick according to my specs back in the Street Fighter IV 360 days. When you miscommunicate, either one or both of you are at fault. I wanted it compatible with all my joystick. Thankfully he didn’t do it according to my specification, because I learned a few things about multi sticks by my experience. Like it’s easier to fiddle with one bulk connection than to disconnect and reconnect individual connections. I had to disconnect quick connects to change from left handed to right handed, and the labels kept falling off, and I didn’t know whether it was dangerous to misinstall if the voltage or ground was in the wrong hole, so I lived without. They are called quick connects, not often connects.
Then I did many years of asking questions. All of you shoryukenners helped me a lot. I had very little money and lots of time, so I spent more of the second and less of the first. I got a deal with stan where I pay him $50/month, ad n the course of 3 months he set the foundation to my ultimate stick. Another 2 or 3 months will go beyond what’s known. doing twork to make all buttons swappable, and making with work with Paleo systems, like Colecovision, Intellivision, 5200, Astrocade, Intellivision, 7800, SMS, and making it versatile enough where it fairly close to swiss-army-knife-like.
He not exactly the most knowlegable expert. But if I show something to him, he can see how to do it and figure it out. He’s built other sticks. He shows them off. I don’t know his youtube or website. I’ll ask when I talk to him at 6PM ET today. I’ll let you meet him.
And @PAS.Timothy I know there’s an official thread, but may it should be an official “folder” with many sub-threads for more specific issues. This is not deep in the weeds. I was just wondering what Stan meant by getting the PS3 wired up. I assumed it was as easy as hooking up a USB B->A. You guys verified that.
I thought the general rule was the shorter and more specific the forum topic is, the better. Maybe @PAS.Timothy can have a linkup page where specific questions are answered.
