depends, how much are you willing to do to fix it? like, is it enough where you'd want to actually mess around w/ the internals of the stick, or possibly flat-out soldering a new one in?Is there anything that can be done for controllers whose control sticks are crapping out, such as getting to loose and wiggly, or not registering all inputs properly?
http://smashboards.com/threads/the-new-guide-to-spray-painting-your-gamecube-controller.265922/I recently bought Smash Bros. Melee, an indego GameCube, and a GameCube controller with a clear bottom all for 30$ bucks off some Hispanic guy in some ghetto store, it was a steal. Now I just need to know how to hook up led lights, anyone want to enlighten me on that?
The easiest way to do that is to replace the whole stick, which is actually very easy to do. You just need to open up the controller, you know take off the front plate, and pull the control stick off. It's not attached to anything, it just slides on and off.I have 8 GC controllers with torn control stick rubber. Is it easy to replace it?
Thanks!The easiest way to do that is to replace the whole stick, which is actually very easy to do. You just need to open up the controller, you know take off the front plate, and pull the control stick off. It's not attached to anything, it just slides on and off.
Only problem is you need a source of extra control sticks haha
my 'troller is pearl top, clear bottom, and lights up with red LEDs when it rumbles (rumble pack does not function). it also has a tag by the port section hanging off that has a pic of Strong Bad and my name on it. it's pretty sick.
the guts are also frankensteined from like 3 controllers over the 5 years I've been playing. i have a backup that's very similar, as well.
further modification will probably be replacing the currently white cord with a pearl cord and putting a Strong Bad-related sticker on the top of it.
oh my god.Broke my R-trigger a long while back, since it's the only trigger I use, and I switched the positions of the C-stick and control stick. The C-stick is a lot shorter than the control stick, and a lot more comfortable to move around in my opinion.
I believe they only ban mods that have turbo or auto short-hop/wavedash type things.Speaking of which, though, is it true that most tournaments ban the use of modded controllers? To what extent does this ban apply? I've read posts by many others who have removed the spring from under their R buttons; would this technically be banned? And how about the 360 stick? It seems to me that using a different analog stick doesn't affect the functionality of the controller at all, although an R button spring removal does.
Well i haven't come across a generic controller where it fits perfectly, but a lot of the times all it takes is sand paper and very hot metal and you've got yourself some spare parts, they are never perfect but they are always close enough to modifyI would like to know too. If i can find a generic controller that I can put real parts in I'll be set for life.
Mine glows in the dark, I just used glow in the dark spray paint. But I suggestion you do not use gltd paint on a bright colored controller because it makes it look icky in the light.Interesting. I'm trying to find a way to make a glow in the dark gamecube controller, so maybe this will help. Thanks!
