    I gutted & rewired an old ps3 mad catz SFIV stick to work with my CMVS/supergun. The schematics for it are easy to find. Finding a decent case for cheap is probably the hardest part - your best bet is probably just modding an old stick. You'll still probably need a dremel to make some customization to fit in and mount the right DB15 port. If you're not into soldering, you could even use a db15 connector with screw terminals.

    Will it go anywhere? I dunno!
    I'm apparently getting somewhere with this.

    As someone mentioned, the NGX controllers can be modded to work with NG. I've seen a number of pre-modded ones on eBay, although I don't know what the quality difference may be between NGX and original NG controllers.

    The answer to your question... it's garbage. The quality is garbage. You pretty much have to gut the entire stick out of the buttons and the micro switches in the joystick to even make it serviceable so you're probably looking at another $25 in parts. It's much more cost effective to just find an old PS3 or Xbox 360 arcade stick with quality parts in it already and rewire it with a Neo plug. I have modded and rewired a few NGX sticks out of curiosity and just a hobby project. I can tell you that you can probably find an authentic AES stick for the same price you would be putting into parts you need to replace in the NGX stick to make it work.

    $40-$45 for the NGX stick
    Around $15 for replacement buttons and switches
    $10 for the Neo DB15 cable.
    And that is not including shipping for these materials, and the cost if you do not already have the solder equipment on hand.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I suspected, with the low price point of the X system, that they probably cut some corners (or a lot of corners).

    There are no corners. It's a circle of shame.
