I ordered an arcade controller, and it is pretty lackluster. I guess it would have to do with the fact that it is rather cheap. I was hoping for an edge since when I play on an original machine it does feel different. While the controller I have is fun to use, I'll stick to using it with NRA: Neon where I am playing for fun and not for record breaking.


In the meantime, I feel a need to take a break from sunset riders. I think I uncovered most things that need to be uncovered in order to beat the game. I did make it half way into the second round, but beating Patrick Wheeler's record will be a massive challenge.

    The majority of the time what you need to do is replace the stick and buttons with actual arcade parts.

    Sounds like the case here. They aren't as expensive as most think either. Of course expensive is a relative term.

    The controller you have, might just be an easy swap that someone has done before too.


    Do a google search for the name of it along with 'mods', 'modded' or 'arcade parts'


    Then if you want US/Japan or Korean parts.


    If you can't solder, no problem. Tons of encoders you can buy for system of choice (system also meaning PCs) with solderless terminals.


    So a cheap arcade controller esentially you look at it as buying it for the chassis.


    :) Only way it will feel like the arcade is with real arcade hardware. Hope this helps!

    This is the thing that I ordered. Like I said, it was a rather big disappointment and it is something for me to try to have an arcade stick controller at home. It really is a poor facisimile to a real arcade cabinet controller. When I play on a real arcade machine, the control is almost always superior to a keyboard, but this one... sadly isn't as good.
