Xbox 360 Digipad Mod - Video inside


#1

Hi,

over here in Germany we received another delay-date for all the MadCatz gear recently and all other fightsticks are out-of-stock or in a ridiculous price range, so I decided to look if I can find an easy way to mod the original controller so I don’t have to spend tons of money or wait another lifetime for a fightstick that stops working after a few minutes.

And here it is: My idea of a digipad mod - please watch and leave comments what u think :wink:

Woah… haha thats actually pretty cool man! Unique to say the least… good work!


#3

wow, intresting idea

but damn, you must be desperate, sucks that y’all have to wait even longer to get the stuff.


#4

desperate is the right word :wink:

First date for the gear was March 1st, then it was March 20th, now it’s April 20th and we’re waiting to receive the next delay anyway - some shops list may or june already…

And because of this freakin worldwide financial crisis I had to find a solution that won’t cost me any money --> Yeah, free nuts, screws and superglue at my working place ftw :smokin:


#5

I did this a long time ago with a NES controller lol

I would try screwing the post directly into the dpad though as the glue prob wont hold up to all that abuse for long


#6

I tested the strength of this glue before I applied it on the dpad and had to use a good amount of musclepower to get it off again :wink:
Also did a bunch of 720s with it and it’s still in place so no worries here.

Thought about screwing it directly into the dpad but this time had a few doubts that I might ruin the screw thread by heavy abuse so I went with the good old nut :wink:

PS: Who’s that girl on yout avatar? She’s hot! :wink:

Nice. She could play with my stick too …errrrr… :smiley:

BTT

this video made me nervous as hell when you was using that glue near your finger tips , was expecting the pad to stick to your hand:rofl::rofl::rofl:

just for others its not advisable to use Super Glue type products without some form of gloves or using an application tool of some kind:tup:


#10

lol - hadn’t realized that hazard before you mentioned it :smiley: gotta add a note to that video :wink:

But I have to say I glued my fingers together several times before - but warm water helps a lot :smiley:


#11

I usually jus bite the glue off after it dries lol


#12

that looks really hard and uncomfortable to use… good effort though.


#13

^^ commented on that under the video

for filming purpose it was uncomfortable cuz I had to hold my hands in front of the camera, but in a normal gaming situation it’s really comfortable for me.

only might have a lil problem to reach LB or LT if your fingers are too short but I have no probs with that :wink: In that case you could use a shorter screw


#14

Good shit, man. Awesome idea.


#15

thank you - feels rly good to get some positive reactions on it

my wife laughed at me when she first saw it :smiley:


#16

it is alil funky lookin… cant blame her lol


#17

That my friend is an INCREDIBLY ghetto joystick. It reminds me of that keyboard “joystick” which has a small joystick pressing down on arrow keys. Bravo!


#18

Lets call it “Hillbilly-Fightstick” :smiley:

Photoshop gave me this:

Best post in a long time. I’d like to try that with a shorter shaft.
