Classic Game Room reviews the X-ARCADE TANKSTICK from X-Arcade powered by Xgaming. This massive dual arcade joystick with a trak-ball can be used on PCs with USB inputs and on Sega Dreamcast, PS2 (and PS1), GameCube, PS3 and Xbox 360 with the appropriate adapters. Complex, expensive and difficult to program, the X-arcade Tankstick won't be for those who aren't serious about their gaming with some time, money and patience on their site. Awesome arcade-style gameplay is delivered when all is said and done though. For this review the Xarcade Tankstick was tested with PC games before and after programming, Mame emulators, PS2 and Sega Dreamcast. CGR recommends the Dreamstick from Dream Arcade for Xbox 360 because it is a 360 controller disassembled and built into an arcade stick to prevent lag. The Tankstick works well with PC, Dreamcast and PS2 (all tested for this review using adapters) but don't expect to not do repair work on it. Build quality is questionable given the price but it's nothing a butter knife and a few hours can't fix, which is irritating. The Tankstick can be purchased as a massive controller as shown or bought with an X-Arcade stand up arcade machine. Versatility and style may be the X-Arcade Tankstick's biggest assets, but those really interested in a house-sized joystick may also want to consider a custom job for the same price. In any event, it is impressive and replaces the Dreamcast controller which needs replacing for many games like Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

X Arcade Machine Cabinet overview

A brief overview of the X-Arcade Machine Cabinet I have had in my basement for a few months now. (http:shop.xgaming.comcollectionsarcade-machinesproductsx-arcade-machine-cabinet-with-250-arcade-classics) I love the arcade. It's very well put together and comes loaded with 250+ games, including classics such as Galaga, Joust, Dig-Dug, and Dragon's Lair, to name a few.In the future, I plan to install a newer version of MAME and add some additional ROMs. I likely will also add a custom marquee and some side art.Let me know if you have any questions about the arcade. I'm a big fan.

game | How To Build A Pro Arcade Stick Easy Way

How To Build A Pro Arcade Stick Easy Way

I built a new arcade stick and this time I was aiming to make it as easy as possible. I made a wood case and used authentic arcade parts (Myoungshin Fanta lever and Sanwa buttons). I had no access to a workshop, I completed it on our balcony in couple of days work and the only power tool I used was an electric drill. This tutorial video shows how I did it. Remember I am no woodworking expert at all and I am no electric expert, this can be done by anybody.Tools include an electric drill, hole saws, hand saw, hand plane, wood rasps, sandpaper (hard and soft), clamps. First plan the desired layout. I used the Namco Noir. Plan how to cut the wood. If you are no expert don't cut it yourself. Go to the store, give them the plan and let them cut it for you. Tell them to be very accurate. You might still need to adjust the panels a bit. Use the hand plane and sandpaper. After the dimensions are right glue pieces of the frame together. I used wood glue to join the elements. Wood glue these days make a bond that is stronger than the wood itself. I used the top panel to position the support blocks. Beware not to glue the top panel yet. I marked the lines to round the edges. Round edges are not necessary BTW. I cut the edges roughly with the hand plane. It can be tricky without a fixed table but doable. I used the rasp to round the edges further. Finished with sandpaper. For the USB cable I drilled a hole first. I cut the rest with the hand saw. And used a rasp and sandpaper to soften the edges. I taped the layout on the top panel. Marked the holes with a wood screw. The pilot holes must be drilled very accurately. Sanwa buttons require 30mm holes. The Korean stick requires a 35mm hole. While drilling the wood might burn a bit so take it slow and interrupt a few times. I sanded the holes. I tested the holes with the buttons and the stick. Positioning the lever and the holes must be done very accurately. Widen the holes in multiple steps. I used threaded inserts for the M4 screws. The hole depth must be very accurately drilled or the top panel will break through. It was a bit messy but the threaded inserts are inserted and stable. One hole went through the top panel and the others got humps too so I was not accurate enough. I used wood glue and saw dust to cover the hole and sanded it. I used acrylic for the bottom panel but it is not necessary. Actually plywood would be more stable. Hole must be drilled in the acrylic before inserting the screws or it will break. I glued the top panel and the case was ready for the varnish. To sand the surfaces between layers I used a P240 grit sandpaper. You can stop here and the case is finished but I wanted a darker and shinier surface and that needs multiple layers. Sand, dust off, apply varnish, wait 24 hours and repeat a couple of times. For the last finish I wet sanded with a P2000 and P2500 grit sandpaper. Not really the result I expected so I added one last thin layer. Professionals can get a beautiful mirror surface but I think this the best I can do. The case was finished so I inserted the lever and the buttons. These are 30mm Sanwa snap in buttons but they don't need to snap. Just push into the 30mm hole and they will stay. I bought a cheap PCB (USB encoder) with prepared wires for the Korean levers (Crown or Myoungshin Fanta) and Sanwa buttons. It does not require soldering. If you have no access to a PCB like that you can always extract the PCB from a controller and solder wires to it. Check my video about the PCB soldering. Cable ties are useful to organize the cables. I used small wood screws to fix the PCB and a hook screw to tie the cord. It is important to fix the cord to something solid so you don't rip it off the PCB accidentally. I secured the bottom panel with felt pads and the case is assembled. Tested the stick and all the buttons and it is ready to use. :)Music: - Way Out West, Spaceman - Belladonna, Meltin' GuitarCheck this link if you are interested how I built my old custom ardcade stick: http:youtu.beMVH2Q8oFzoY

Classic Game Room MAD CATZ XBOX 360 ARCADE JOYSTICK review

Classic Game Room HD reviews the MAD CATZ Xbox 360 arcade joystick. This jack-of-all-trades joystick controller is meant to appeal to those who want arcade style action and performance with modern next gen functionality. This review of the Mad Catz controller shows where Mad Catz went right, and where they went dreadfully wrong. It is a USB controller which is good for keeping costs down, but not a terribly arcade style retro controller by any means. If you are downloading arcade classic video games from XBLA Xbox Live Arcade on the Xbox 360 like Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, Xevious or Streets of Rage 2 is this the joystick controller that you should buy? Did MadCatz make the best controller for action gameplay or did MadCatz make merely an acceptable controller for you to spend money on? Watch this and other Xbox 360 and PS3 accessory reviews here on Classic Game Room! Even thought this is a review of a USB controller it won't work with the PS3 or Wii game consoles, or PC. Strictly a USB controller for the Xbox 360 video game console.

Classic Game Room PELICAN ACCESSORIES Playstation Joystick review

Classic Game Room reviews the PELICAN ACCESSORIES Playstation 1 and 2 Joystick for use with PS2 and PS1 fighting games and other videogames where an "arcade style" joystick is preferred. This cheap, palstic fighting stick for the PS2 and PS1 can be used to play Playstation fighters like Tekken 2 and 3 or Virtua Fighter 4 (among many others). It has the standard Playstation buttons and L1, R1, L2 and R2. A joystick with arcade style ball top is acceptable, as long as you don't pay much for this odd-looking controller. Rubber pads with "nubbins" seem to be the standout feature on the Pelican Accessories PS2 fighting joystick. This CGR video review of Playstation 2 and PS1 hardware reviews a Pelican Accessories fighting style arcade joystick for PS2.
