I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions on how to reduce the activation length of an arcade stick. Basically I’m happy with my stick’s spring tension and fast return to neutral but unhappy with the distance it takes the stick to touch the microswitch lever and activate it.
I find this causes issues when hitting diagonals, as I really have to force the input, is there anyway I can reduce the distance it touches the microswitch lever.
It is the standard cherry microswitches with 2 screws to hold it in position.
Possible ideas I had in mind are as follows:
Put some kind of rubber washer around the mechanism which touches the microswitch levers, so reducing the distance
Tape around the mechanism to make it bigger, same as above idea
Use 1 screw and position the microswitch closer to the lever and put some kind of clip to hold it in place
Custom build a new mechanism with plastic injection moulding ahahah thats a far out idea
I’m sure some of you guys have more smarter ideas than me
