Although this is not always necessary, custom mapping of your controls is now easier than ever by downloading the button mapping software and customizing your mapped layout in seconds. This is a keyboard encoded device and is pre-configured to the popular arcade software MAME. There are on/off switches for the illuminated menu LED button lights. The control board graphic is protected by a die-cut sheet of scratch resistant plexiglass. The NON LED Game-Play Action Buttons come in black only, however they can easily be modded yourself if any customization or color is desired. The LED Menu Buttons are only available in white.

NOTE: We are no longer supporting LED action buttons as most LED buttons have proven to experience delayed responsiveness and can be very stiff during game-play. Although some gamers may like the visual aesthetic of LED action buttons, a large majority of our customers prefer quality responsiveness with their game-play therefore justifying this layout. You certainly can upgrade to all LED buttons yourself as there is an active VCC current you have the option connect to in a custom Mod.

Optional Custom Modding

(For Advanced Users Only)

Although it is not at all necessary, the board is designed to be very easy to access for mods and personal customizations. The buttons and sticks are actually extremely easy to mod. We do use and include official Suzo Happ Arcade joysticks and route out a 1/2" pocket for mounting to the 3/4" board. With the 1/8" plexiglass, the sticks mount with a comparable standard height off the platform as popular competition sticks.

Adding all LED action buttons is fully supported as there is an active 12v VCC current powered by USB.

5 of 5 YES YES YES January 30, 2020
Reviewer: Joe from Bethlehem PA  
For anyone even considering an arcade or simply a controller I can say without question your search should stop here.  Purchased almost 3 years ago now as part of an arcade cabinet and couldn't be any happier.  Rec Room Masters upgraded the firmware to allow input switching.   Now every game is 100% compatible including Steam games which were a pain to configure previously.  Just amazing.  Has stood the test of time from both myself and the kids.  Highest recommendation possible.  (Custom graphics also highly recommended - great experience in setting them up and is exactly what we wanted.)

5 of 5 Best arcade stick September 24, 2018
Reviewer: BHazard from NY  
Best feeling/looking arcade stick out there. By default, it is a huge pain to configure in emulators outside of MAME. Flash the miniipac inside to the dual gamepad enabled firmware to allow much easier key binding. The default config as a keyboard only is a nightmare outside of MAME.

Reviewer: Gary Lutz from PORTLAND, OR United States  
This is the perfect finish to the cabinet.  Very high quality construction and the controls feel professional.  The custom design is perfect for my machine - and the colors work perfectly with the colored controls I chose.
