    MAME Cabs etc..

    Carrying on from the deal about the NES in a cab, does anybody know any good suppliers for parts. Buttons, Microswitch joysticks etc? Thinking of making an arcade controller out of a busted xbox controller I have here but not quite sure where to get the bits from. Yeah I am that bored lol.

    Preferably in this country. I've found a German supplier but postage will probably be a killer.

    Cheers for that. I found a few more (Gremlin etc) and have them bookmarked for future ref. Had a word with the wife this morning about it and she said her dad may have a load of arcade machine bits 'in storage' (ie chucked at the back of the shed lol) from when he used to sell them

    That's pretty much the plan. Take the board from some nacked controllers and wire them to arcade buttons etc. Just trying to work out if I can convert the analog sticks to digital with a crafty bit of resistor wiring as that would give me an extra 8 'buttons' (not including the triggers):thinking:

    You can, Google controller hacking or similar. I remember seeing some tutorials on it involving Dreamcast pads, but the principal should be the same for Xbox.
