I have a Hori stick than I'm now planning to mod, but I'm wondering how hard is it to do so.
I can buy from Harbor Freight tools a Soldering pen, knock off Dremel grinder, and chip soldering pen holder all for less then $5 as I have coupons. I lost my modding tools when I moved over 8 years ago. Is there any other tools I would need?
I saw some videos on youtube and some either don't give enough info or are confusing as hell. I do know how to mod as I have modded my PS1 and Dreamcast with chips to play japanese games, but I never modded an arcade stick. Will it be much harder?
I used this guide to do mine: http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=179535
I highly recommend grabbing a desoldering iron from radio shack, it removes solder like a dream. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062731&CAWELAID=107592455
it's not to hard, make sure the wires for the buttons are long enough and they'll be easier to attach. I used a tuperware lid under the bottom of the buttons to shield the metal bottom. --- Today is the Tomorrow you were promised Yesterday
