So pretty much the consensus on this board is good=$, but i’m on an extremely tight budget and will only be using this stick for SF4. I have a PS3 and the most affordable stick would be the Hori FS3 which they have in stock at my local Fry’s. However there seems to be many bad reviews on it. So upon a little more research i’ve come to the conclusion that making my own stick would be the most cost efficient option without sacrificing quality.
I’ve sourced some parts from lizard lick:
1 iL Eurojoystick
6 Happ competition buttons
2 Sanwa 24 bottons
Total came out to be $32 after shipping
Board i will be using will hopefully be a PSone DS if its still working, but i also have a PSX controller for backup. I got tons of spare wood around so dont need to make any extra purchases there. And various extra and paint should make the grand total around $48 for the whole project.
I’ll start documenting my project when the parts arrive, but do you guys see any issues that these parts may cause or reliability issues? I’m hoping to make a decent stick on a very small budget.
