Kuztom arcade stick makers in Europe?

Post by LEGENOARYNINLIA » October 5th, 2018, 7:10 pm

I have an itch for two identical custom arcade sticks for the N64 with classic MK3 layouts. Any idea who would be willing to make these in Europe? Other suggestions are also welcome, like where to get cheap "fight sticks" that can be stripped down and just use the cases, what parts to use, etc.

Two neat and identical cases with classic MK3 button layouts. They needs to be able to fit sticks with round gates. I'm thinking about going for Korean parts, but I'm not entirely sure which ones and how deep those stick mechs are. So I need to be 101% sure everything works out, before paying for two cases and the parts.

For example, it looks like I could gut a Hori Fighting Stick 3 and have a custom control panel made for it, but I've no idea if the parts I want will fit in the case.

I really want to play N64 MK Trilogy properly. :(

Probably because of shipping I won't be able to help you, but check mah arcade stikz here:
I'm in Chile, and a guy from USA bought a case from me a few months ago. He asked for only the case, and he finished the build himself. LMK if interested

I make control panels, and arcade stick housings.

Here is a thread of what I currently make, but if something bespoke is wanted, then I can easily accommodate

Impressive stuff! I could see a Sega panel with a MK layout on one of those cases working in theory, but ideally I want two separate arcade stick controllers that can be placed on the lap. But, I'll... konsider your services. :whoopsie:

Making 2 separate smaller enclosures would be no problem. Instead of using a separate control panel on top, the hole layout could be cut directly into the top of the enclosures

I make custom enclosures.

The thread I linked to further up has disappeared, but here is my thread on UKVAC. The the first one would be ideal as it could just plug in via USB to the RasPi
