New 3rd party N64 Joysticks

Post by Hifeno » Sat Mar 26, 2011 10:08 am

I am sure someone here has seen these. Question is are they legit and do they work like newer analog sticks.

They are legit and I'm 90% sure one of these was used in the Grape64.

Yes these are legit and as far as a know they are third party sticks that are compatible with original n64 controllers, its just a matter of opening the controller and unplugging the analog stick to swap them out and these ones don't break within the first week of use.

buy that, havent tested it personally but pic should explain.
not reviewed highly on smashboards, people have experienced large deadzones, stuck diagonals, and octagonal gate wear down.

The question is could you buy one of these and replace the stick inside with one from a gamecube controller to fix all the dead zone problems and such that some people have had?

i believe so yes, but it would be cheaper to buy a pre-programmed microchip.
and i've read those sticks need to be broken open.

Ya I have two of those but you have to mod the controller for it to work and I am not that great at plastic mod

No. These replace first-party sticks, and as such, you can't use GC analogs. Only some 3rd party controllers are compatible.

If you look inside the housing there is a small, long chip. Wire up the gamecube analog to the chip and the chip to the 1st party controller and I bet you it'd work.

Yes sir. You are correct. I experienced no problems whatsoever with this joystick. You plug it in and you're good to go.

These are made in taiwan so QC might be a little hit or miss. There was a vendor at MGC that was selling controllers with swapped joysticks for 20$, you can buy the sticks alone 2 for like 20$ on ebay iirc.
