Well, a little background first.
I’ve never played on an arcade stick except at my friend’s place. About 99% of my fighting game experience was on the keyboard where the direction is on the right side (via arrow keys) and the four buttons I used were on the left side.
As you would know, in arcade sticks and controllers, the direction is on the left and buttons on the right.
I did some research, watched some videos.
My friend is offering to sell me a SFIV TE stick for a very competitive price.
What I want to do is this.
I want to open it up, flip the top panel along the vertical axis so the buttons are on the left side, the stick is on the right side, then reinstall all of the insides in this reversed manner.
So, I WILL buy the SFIV from my friend, but before that I would like to know if what I want to do is possible before I open it up and end up breaking it and crying.
If this isn’t possible, is there a stick that makes this possible? A HRAP3 SA?
Thanks for your time and responses.
