Ok, so I have a question to those of you that use fightsticks regularly. I have a project that I’m working on, and without giving anything away the case I’m using has a rather large cosmetic circle in the middle of it. I’m trying to figure determine if it would be better to:
A: offset the joystick and buttons to preserve the circle’s cosmetic design
B: pretend the circle wasn’t there and just place the buttons in a more natural position in the middle of the case.
- Cosmetics come first.
- Function comes first.
If I do B I could put the LK/A button right in the middle of the circle. I don’t think integrating the artwork into the button would be an option either, mainly due to a lighting scheme I’m wanting to implement.
If I do A on the other hand, the buttons will end up being pushed toward the back of the case. I checked and there will be enough room, but I am curious as to how you guys, as an example, would feel about a fight stick with the buttons and joystick more to the back of the controller.
I would say more about what I’m doing, but aside from making a fightstick, I’m wanting to keep the details a surprise for everyone. I am intending on documenting putting it together and uploading it to my youtube channel when I get done. From how things are looking, it’ll probably be mid to late March before I finish though, mainly due to acquiring the parts needed.
