I had heard how horrible the CX-24 was and could tell there was issues with the joystick without even playing with it. I knew I had to come up with a fix since I am a right handed joystick gamer and didn't want to use the Euro game pad controller especially for Arcade games like Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Dig Dug, Pac-Man and so on.
I removed the stock joystick top, shortened the shaft, threaded it and installed a ball. This is very much like the controller mod I do on the ColecoVision. I got one finished last night and am posting 2 pictures to show what it looks like. Feels great, but I have to wait until tonight to test it at my friends. My first 7800 is on it's way FedEx.
I will offer this mod as a service. Send me the controllers and I will install the ball mod
1 controller for $12.50 or 2 controllers for $22.00 + return shipping.
