I’m a huge SF fan like everyone here and wanted to share this video I made of my arcade stick. I made this last year when news first broke on SF4 and SSFIIHD Remix. I have a 360 and I couldn’t stand the controllers so I decided to build one from scratch. I know they have really cool sticks coming out now but back then it was essential for me to create one because I couldn’t afford one of those expensive sticks. I’ve seen tons of cool mods out there these days. I am actually building a few more because they work perfectly with MAME so I can get my SFIII on as well. Here was my cost breakdown.
Old coffee table: Free
Used 360 Controller: $25
Buttons and parts: $20
Total cost : 45
I’ll post some high res pics if any of you are interested. It was a fun project and I can’t stop playing street fighter these days.
Ok, on to the vid. Hope you guys like it.
Thanks for comments. Yeah it’s been a fun ride so far. I am curious where I can get competition grade buttons and joysticks? I was under the impression that X-Arcade parts were. Honestly I’ve had some problems with the buttons not responding sometimes and the joystick wearing out. I am very interested in fixing this problem.
Now that’s one hell of a stick. I wouldn’t mind playing on that, no sir! And the wiring job on that stick was astoundingly good! Out of curiosity, what’s up with your Play and Charge kit? Is it hooked up to a female USB type B slot and mounted onto the table or is the wire just free?
