Building Cabinet Questions

Recommended Posts

I am working on building a full size cabinet and trying to make a decision on what buttons and joysticks to use. For button I don't care about LED lights but want the concave buttons. Happ is the type that I am used to. Is Happ the way to go or is there somebody else that makes a button like them. Joysticks also I like the older american type the bat type. I was looking at the Mag-Stick Plus which lets you change from 4 way to 8 way by pulling the stick up and turning it. Any help or guidance would be great.


Also if anybody needs a questions answered be my guest and ask you questions here also.

If I had to do it all over again I'd buy the joysticks that you could switch from 4 to 8 way that's my only real regret.

I use Ultrasticks from Ultimarc.  They are USB and mappable, so that when you start a game, they instantly switch from 4 to 8 way, 2 way, analog, even diagonal for Q-Bert.  They have a slightly soft feel, so if you are a fighting game only guy you may not like them, but otherwise they are amazing.


If you are going all out arcade, I recommend the TurboTwist 2 spinner from Groovy Game Gear... they even have a really nice weighted steering small steering wheel you can put on the spinner for pole position type games.


I'm using the original trackball from my X-Arcade which is fine, but those places sell trackballs too if you want one.
