where i come from (Egypt) it’s impossible to find an arcade stick (not without sacrificing a limb for the price anyway) so i decided to build my own, i’ve already built a PC only “Hitbox” style arcade controller before and it came out pretty nice, and at a very…very low cost which is what i was aiming for.
now i am aiming for a higher quality build, i want to build an arcade stick box with proper joystick controller, and base it off of an xbox360 wired controller so it would work on my PC and my xbox…
the question i have now is this, i can only find this joystick (like in ALL Egypt!) and i don’t think it’s “fighting-ready”…it’s more like a pac-man joystick with 4-way controls mainly in mind:
one of the comments says that if i leave the constrictor plate at the bottom centered, i could use it as an 8-way controllers with usable diagonals, i am not sure about that and i would hate to buy it then find out it wont work (it’s actually a lot more expensive where i live than the one listed on that site).
also there is the height of the stick, i think it maybe too short, but then again the only arcade box i built was an all-button controller so i really wouldn’t know of the proper height.
i need advice building this poor man arcade stick, and thanks in advance .
