ran into a small problem need help...
« on: December 04, 2005, 12:18:56 pm »
See I.lm building 4 player cab but before buying mag-silk plus joysticks and buttons I needed to choose what color I wanted and I thought that since I'm big fan of the simpsons arcade (and tv of course.) I wanted same color order just like simpson cab, red, blue, green, and orange.

But the problem is they do have orange button on happs but no orange joystick for mag-silk plus.

What can I do about this? Any opitions?

Orange marker... Spray paint... Dang, that is a hard one.   ???

The Happ Competition 8way joystick comes in Orange. 

Do you need all 4 joysticks to be 4/8 way switchable?  Or can you just use joystick 1 and two as 4/8 way, then make player 3 and 4 as normal 8 way sticks?

oh damn

i was thinking about just using yellow one instead of orange but they dont' have yellow one as well.

well might as well forget simpson thing since i wanted ball top joystick and they don't have yellow one.

i checked happ and i don't see any ball top joystick that comes in colors.

if you know any maf that makes yellow (or maybe orange as well) ball top joystick that will fit into mag silk joystick. let me know ASAP!

I don't know if the magstick balltops are threaded, but if they are, you can probably find a way to mount one of these LB-30 balltops from Sanwa:

I'm sure they'll fit on the Ultimarc's J-Stick 'cos that's a rebranded Sanwa.

I was looking at the joystick options from Slikstik.  I was pretty sure the 8way stick was a happs.  But, they do sell it in orange, whatever it is.

Still, that wouldn't be a switchable option for you.  But they are nice sticks.  I don't really play too many 4 way games with my slikstik.
