Is there any way to rewire a Qanba Q4RAF so that the Start/Select buttons are up top like an Eightarc? If so, how?
Anything is possible, providing you take the time and effort for it.
Is there already extra buttons on the top of the Q4 that can be used for this purpose?
If yes, just find the traces, sever the existing connections, solder in the wires for the buttons you want to use.
If no, you can always either create your own buttons in the strip, or drill in new holes for smaller buttons (10mm/12mm ones).
