LED Joysticks and buttons



  • Any links for buying LED joysticks and buttons of reliable hardware would be appreciated. I'd like 4 way capable of 8 way and the easiest plug and play as possible for my pi3.



  • @normanmsu96 Paradise Arcade, GroovyGameGear, and Ultimarc are the top three choices right now IMHO. Each has some unique products that are best in class.

    I recommend forum.arcadecontrols.com as the best resource for questions like these. It's a forum dedicated to building cabinets and control panels.



  • Oh... for easiest plug and play from a Pi, you probably want a controller board that identifies as a keyboard, or as a 360 controller. There are many of these on the market. Watch out for some gotchas with ones marketed as Xin-Mo, there are actually several makes being sold under that name and they aren't all the same (Paradise Arcade in particular carries ones labeled Xin-Mo that may require a fresh kernel compilation).
