4 Button Analog Joypad

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i want to Show you my 4 Button analog Joypad that i got today from a User of an german Forum.

 

He wrote a Little Tutorial for modding a a Neo Geo Mini Controller into an optimal Vectrex Joypad.

 

Here is the Picture of that Thing, because without any Picture, the Topic isn`t enjoyable :D

.) The Controller is cheap $ 20,- + Cables and Parts....

 

.) Looks good

 

.) Feels good

 

.) Is analog

 

.) has 4 Buttons insted of the Genesis/MegaDrive Controller

 

 

 

Is there any Interrest for the Tutorial?? 

 

Is it allowed to Post Links to other Webforums?

If so, i have to ask the User if it's OK to link the Tutorial.

That controller looks great.  I'd be interested in the tutorial as well.

Wonderful. Is this purchasable as a finished product or as a kit? I would love to find an affordable controller for the Vectrex as my only controller's joystick is oversensitive.

Thank you.

Here is the Tutoriallink:

It is in German, but i`m shure that you figure it out somehow if you really interrested.

 

 

The Controller is not a Commercial Product, you have to mod it yourself or find someone to do the work for you.

I built one, too, loosely from that tutorial/idea. In Contrast, I used spindle trimmers glued on the board, bent the outer legs of the pots upwards connected to there and I also drilled some holes (red circles in the image) to help route the cabling on the different sides of the pcb. Thus, I found it quite easy to assemble everything back into the case without cutting things from the case, and you can reach the spindle trimmers without removing the PCB from the case.

Nice Work.

 

How does it feel while Playing?

 

Since the Controllers of the Neo Geo Mini are Cheap and brand new to get, i think it is a very good 4 Button Analog Controller for the System.

Maybe the MegaDrive/Genesis Controller is also good, but it isn`t Analog and i think the Button Layout is a Little bit odd....

 

PS:

Greetings to @vectrexroli .

I would love to see that Controllermod in one of your Videos.

Maybe i can arrange something to get you a Controller like that. (Sadly i can`t swing the soldering iron myself, so i have to outsource....)

I have a Vecadapt and did play with some of my Genesis Controllers and yes, the Button Layout isn't optimal. On my first try with the NG-Controller I went further on my first live in Scamble than ever before.
