    I recently purchased an original arcade control panel and I have it all fully working now, however I'm finding the buttons to be quite hard to press (due to health issues I get a lot of pain in my fingers) and I just wondered if there are any softer springs available (I heard the stock ones are 200g) that would be a drop in replacement for the genuine buttons?

    I just recently received my springs with the help of correllroy linking the site and using white rabbit to order them(a little expensive but worth it). As long as you know how to take the controller and the 100m buttons apart it should be a simple drop in replacement. They make the buttons spring back really nicely and easy to push.

    Hey been lurking on the site for a while and was wondering if anyone could help me. I just got the divaller with the sanwa buttons and switches and wanted to change the springs to 200g springs but, i can't figure out how separate the button from the switch. Google isn't helping and i really don't want to break it.

    If it's just standard buttons like me, you just have to turn it on the left, like a key, and it go off, then on the right to insert it.

    I'm still not sure how to do my slider, but things changed and I need to do it for November event...

    The principe seems simple enough...
    One pcb for detection of the sensors made of copper, wired to the pcb entries, then one pcb to use code on it that will translate the inputs to a correct output though USB...

    But I feel like I missing something related to resistors, and things like that...
    Can someone show me all the needed things actually ?
    I'm trying to do a controller working on PC (AFT/PPD) and PS4 with arcade mode (for switch, as I use hacked switch, I'll just translate the controller to Switch using my own build syscon module)

    Thanks.

    Its not standard buttons. Its the sanwa obsa-100umq buttons and obsa-lhsxf switches with the built in led. I tried twisting it but it doesn't move and the video I found shows them just pushing it straight in till it clicks but no turning.

    You don't twist it. When disassembling you only remove from Switch>Bulb> then when get to pushbutton press and hold and remove the spring and to remove the button from the back Holder. A video assemble to follow backwards

    So I e-mailed GAMO2 and they confirmed that you do twist the switches to the left to remove them. The akishop video was using different switches that you don't twist and it got me confused. Anyway, I got my new springs put in and it feels great. I also made some noise dampeners out of some thin packing foam i had. Its not "silent" but it is noticeably quieter. Thank you all for your help.

    Added Sanwa OBS M 1 micro switches to my Hori Mini Controller. and switched the buttons around to match the DX version.

    put sanwa optical switch + 200g springs
    never played the arcade so i don't know if this actually feels like the real thing

    The aftermarket sanwa led looks actually white unlike the OEM ones that has blue hue

    The buttons look identical to the Sanwa ones so the feel compared to the original arcade should be identical.

    Ah, I thought Hori had made a good replica, in that case then what you have is exactly as in the arcades and will perform the same.
