Question - 6 button madcatz se


#1

I’ve been browsing around collecting ideas for when I start modding my stick and Ive seen a few se’s with 6 buttons instead of the standard 8. How is this typically done? Do you guys just not cut the holes for the 7 and 8 buttons or is there something more advanced?

Thanks.

Button plugs are your friend.


#3

Button holes.

Also, you could just cut 6 holes :S


#4

I know about button holes but they look like ass and the ones I saw didnt have them. I guess the answer is to just cut the 6 holes.


#5

This.

If you just slap the art on and only cut 6 holes, and you don’t plug it up with a button plug You’ll probably end up poking a hole in it, in which case you’ll end up putting in a button plug. Which means you should probably just do it now instead of down the road.

This is all providing that you don’t have a plexi on your SE. Which I don’t think I’ve really seen too much of, TBH.

Best of luck either way, though.

Thats exactly why I made this thread…Now this leads me to my next question. Is there any way to fill them besides the plugs or plexi?


#7

I have an SE with only 6 buttons. I was afraid of this happening, but the lamination I got from Kinkos for my artwork is surprisingly sturdy and holds up well. Been using it for a few months now and no dents or anything yet.

I’ve seen someone around here that sells some kind of bamboo tops for these with the correct 6 button layout. Tying to find it again…

I agree with Dave, these would probably work better.
