3dPrintservice is back again with a new DIY item.
We all know this feeling from playing a nice game and the damned joystick breaks down.
Now you can make your own Competition Pro styled joystick with this base. All that is required then is to buy some arcade buttons, stick and wire it to a DB9 connection, and there you have it a new working joystick.
Ok, it's all good then. It's pretty obvious that all clones of specific design will end up looking more or less similar
Also, the information is rather... minimal...
I have tons of arcade components lying around, and after printing the one case I found, I noticed that none of them would really fit.
For anyone who might be interested in building a stick, it would be helpful if you: 1)Linked to compatible parts and/or: 2)Provided necessary dimensions (screw hole positions for the stick component, button length) etc.
You can probably get clone components, that are way better than any old stick from ali express for a few dollars. There are also megadrive pad extension cables, that can be used for such a project.
