    I think that nearly no one have something to buy things where he live, so online shops are helping out. Especially in case of slider, you can buy main elements on aliexpress or other shops and order aditional components in JLCPCB, for example. because slider with PCBs nearly has no issues and really comfortable to use. So if you have this possibility - may be better to look at it. But in case of buttons, as I said, you only need some fighting board for PS4 (for example this, I do not really know, because do not have PS4) and connect all buttons as marked on the board :)

    There is other possibility in fighting boards is project Passinglink on github to make your own dualshock 4 using STM32 controller, but it has some nuances. Again, only if you want something special that other boards cannot offer.

    I cant get any fighting board beacause the shipping fee is so pricy( it is equal as the price of a product or even double to ship to my country) so i am looking for another way

    Then I think there is 2 more or less possible variants: is to use GIMX or to use Passinglink to make your controller work with PS4. GIMX as I know pretty easy to make, but it has one big nuance - it needs another PC (personal computer) to be as connecting link converter between your controller (for example, made on Arduino Pro Micro/Arduino Leonardo) and your PS4. And PassingLink, it's can be already completed controller that can be recognized by PS4 as DS4, but as I know to work fully as DS4 it needs encryption keys extracted from DS4 board version JDM-001, but if you have it you can build your controller pretty easy in case of hardware using STM32F103 Bluepill (that on aliexpress costs $1-2$ or something like that).

    This man will not let me lie :)

    Hi, I'm completely new to Project Diva and this community. My friend got me into it and I've only been playing since Jan 2021

    Even though I've only been playing for a short time, I've already made a custom controller. Just wanted to share

    It's a 3D printed case that I made myself

    Hope you guys like it!

    Not related, but Linus finally reviewed this:



    If it's cheaper and actually sensitive enough it might make a nice all-in-one diva controller. Just saying.

    I won't recommend this. It has no support for dedicated controller mode and arcade slider mode. Also due to its structure and firmware DRM it's difficult if not impossible for 3rd party to make custom firmware that implements those features.

    On the other hand Divaller has full support for CFW and there is already custom firmware for arcade slider mode.

    Also I don't think anyone is talking about this controller on Reddit. Where did you see that "everybody cries about latency and poor pcb"?

    Seems like the normal mode is hori normal mode while the "arcade mode" is everybody else's "normal mode". So you get what you paid for (that is if it's possible to get it for the $50 "MSRP").
