Default The Arcade Stick Model 2 - 12-17-2011, 12:23 PM

Yesterday, as of this post, I decided to add a third button to the arcade box. If you look at the above picture, it would have formed a triangle shape.

After that, I tried to play Metal Slug X with it. There were a number issues I had with it!
  • The box was too tall, so my arms cramped trying to play the game.
  • The buttons formed a triangle shape. My fingers don't work like that!
  • The box tape was coming off, and the joystick appeared to be ripping out of the box!

While I was cloning my HDD, a process that took about 5-6 hours, I decided to redesign the arcade stick! It was hard work, but I think it was worth the effort!

New Features/Why this one is better
  • The box is thinner, smaller, and its cardboard is stronger!
  • The three buttons have been reorganized into a semi-ergonomic layout.
  • The joystick is hot-glued in place. It's not going anywhere!
  • There is a fifth button on the side, used as a "Coin Insert" button in MAME.
  • I used a pencil, instead of a green Sharpie, to make marks on the box, so it looks better.

I have tested this thing with a number of games
  • Gradius III Arcade: Made it to stage 2 without dying. That has never happened before!
  • Cosmic Cop (or Armed Police Unit Gallop): Worked quite well!
  • Metal Slug X: Got through Stage 1 without dying. That never happened often either! The narrator even said "You're great!"

Anyway, I think it's pretty awesome! Let me know what you think!
(I don't think the picture does it justice, though)

I'm deeply sorry, but Sky Warrior will have to be delayed for a while. A number of other projects have shown up that require my attention
