So I had originally intended this to be a thread for arcade sticks, but MarkMan I am not! Plus I thought it’d be more fun to broaden the theme and see what else is out there. So yeah, anything outside of your basic standard controllers…feel free to share here I’ll start!
I happened to catch the Pop’N Music controller when it had free shipping which made the difference for me.
And hey like I said this was originally gonna be an arcade stick thread Please feel free to share!
But really I just meant anything besides the standard gamepad that comes with the standard normal edition system. Could be an arcade stick, a wavebird, an SNES turbo controller (I loved my ascii model), or a cool special edition standard controller. I just wanna see some cool controllers
I have a stock green goblin Dreamcast stick and I’m actually fairly happy with the stick itself. Those stock buttons, however, are another story. You really have to push them dead center to ensure they properly register.
Pushing a button outside the center can cause it to not register your input on occasion as they have a substantial amount of “jiggle” to them and don’t travel straight down in uniform fashion like a good arcade quality part would.
Yeah, I recall the original buttons being kind of wonky now that you mention it. But honestly, once you switch over to using actual arcade parts, even the joystick will feel clumsy.
The nice thing with this controller is the layout is perfect, the spacing between joystick and buttons is very comfortable, and it’s a real easy one to mod (this was my first arcade stick that I modded myself, a dremel is basically all you need). Over the years I cleaned up the original (poor) wiring job that I did, internally it’s super clean now, with all quick release plugs for easy part replacement.
