I'm so fucking pissed /v/. It's largely my fault for not doing any research but fuck, I didn't think they were going to be this stupid

I had this imported. I was so fucking excited. It's such a gorgeous controller and there's nothing else out there like it and was ecstatic they they were getting an official rerelease. Been waiting all month for it and it finally showed up to day

It's got a decent weight to it. The buttons feel good. The plastic is nicely textured. Feels good in the hands. It's everything I hoped it can be and then

Wait. What? Are you fucking kidding me? The stick isn't fucking microswitched. There's no click. No sense of direction. It's just an awkwardly loose analog stick. What the fuck? Why on earth did they remove the most defining feature about the controller? Who's idea was this?

Should have waited a while until some other guy ended up being a poor sucker. Usually nostalgia bait products are a no no.

It does look quite nice.

Care to open it up and compare it with a regular old NEO GEO CD pad?

You'll depress him

The reason I opened this thread is I thought for a second OP was the one who was going to buy the PS3 version and I am curious about that one

Try google translating the Japanese reviews of the PS3 version

Here. I was pissed enough to do it

I don't know what the heck is going on here

Those brown things should be potentiometers. Analog stick instead of micro switches.
life lesson: brown is bad.

>>5043518
Haha what the fuck I genuinely believe the Chinese could clone the NEO GEO CD controller and make a USB version of it better than this.

>buying from chiNk
You only have yourself to blame, they are not the same company, remember that SNK was a hardware and software company, the hardware part is no more
>>
>>5043518
What are those blocks in the corner are they there to add weight or something?
>>
I got a real neo geo cd controller and this thing doesn't click either checked inside everything looks fine no idea what the hell the previous owner did.
>>
>>5043538
Yes, they're just metal plates there to add weight
>>
Woah you mean some piece of hardware sold by neogeo in the last 5 years is absolute trash? Color me fucked

Is the mini geo not out yet?

I was psyched for those white Neo CD pads, and their better button layout. I planned to mod a couple to use on the AES, but they had to fuck it up. The stick on the NeoGeo Mini itself is analog, too.

Neogeo sticks (both square and kidney) and pad have clicky microswitches for stick/dpad.
Square stick also has nonclicky switches for buttons.
Kidney and pad have rubber dome buttons.
>>
>>5044236
Don't forget NGPC, clicky d-pad and non-mechanical buttons.

Never owned a non-color NGP, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't also clicky d-pad and non-mechanical buttons.

If you want to dip your toes in the water, the PDP Versus Fightpad also has a "clicky" microswitched digital stick. It's much shittier but it does give you the experience before it breaks and it's only $15 brand new.

Why did this gamepad go for a sort of lopsided diamond layout for face buttons like this?
>>
>>5043518
bahaha

>>5043462
This isn't /v/, cunt.
>>
>>5044943
The shitty chink switches can be replaced with Omron D2F-01 microswitches. The real problem with the PDP pad is the rubberized bottom half of the controller that turns into disintegrating sticky goo.
>>
>>5045468
the original layout of neocd pad
CD
AB
is the best for neogeo games, too bad they changed it
>>
>>5046484
Maybe disassemble and plastidip? Link to a project page for swapping microswitches?

This, just get a 1 slot MVS PCB, a decent super gun and a NEO GEO CD pad, most of the good MVS games are still under 100 dollars or even under 50, so you might as well.

The switches are your standard mouse button switches, with three thru pcb leads. If you can desolder/solder, they shouldn't be hard to replace. There's 6 for the face buttons, and 4 on the underside of the joystick pcb.
>>
>>5046918
You're a mouse modder, right? Any way to get the level of resistance as >>5043493? I looked up Omron D2F-01 and while I believe you that they're the Cadillac of that type of microswitch I can't imagine they give a true "ptang"

>and a NEO GEO CD pad
just make a stick. the pads are getting old and are getting worn out very easily now. you can wire the buttons directly to a db15 cable. its easy as hell to make your own stick for neo geo. pic related. the top i made myself and the bottom one was a used TE that I got off ebay for $70 shipped and modded for Neo Geo.

i know now. still if I can avoid a converter i will.

Does ANY modern controller have microswitches? Regardless of whether it's an original or a reproduction of something else?
Other than maybe some high end arcade sticks, I can't think of any. Shouldn't you expect them NOT to be there by this point, unless you're buying something specifically advertising that it has them?
>>
>>5047323
>introducing usb interface lag into your retro hardware
...may as well start emulating too
>>
>>5047742
The controller for the retron 5 does. Its light and the buttons are clicky as fuck too. Only works over bluetooth. Shit console, shit controller. But if you want clicky, pick up a controller. I think theyre aroind $40
>>
>>5047742
see
>>5044943
>>
>>5047742
The Edge joysticks for the NES and Super NES Classics both use microswitches in spite of being copies of designs that didn't have them. Unfortunately, they tend to have really shitty soldering out of the box.
>>
>>5043462
you're a dumb motherfucker who should've done his research.EVERYONE was saying the pad was analog.
>>
>>5044245
Is that yours? If so, post more pics of those Honda Monkeys pls.

was this considered to be an "official" controller by the company that owns SNK? Because I've heard that the NeoGeo X and the NeoGeo Mini arcade cabinet have been massive disappointments and were clearly a system on a chip.
