FRANKENTROLLER: NGPC + GRAVIS GP PRO

20131122_023805

Here’s a really great retro-fit project that uses Bluefruit from arfink via chipmusic.org:

I have here a Neo Geo Pocket Color (AKA NGPC) and an old Gravis Gamepad Pro. The Gravis has excellent button placement and feels great in the hand, but the d-pads on them always sucked because back in the day Nintendo still had a patent on the good kind. Well, as it turns out, there was one directional input which was still better than a cross-shaped d-pad, and that’s the clicky thumbstick on the NGPC. It’s amazing, and is the only thumb-control I’ve ever liked for shmups or fighting games, because you can actually pull off a dragon-punch move without breaking your thumbs. IMO, the thumb stick of the NGPC was the very best part of the whole system.

So I’m transplanting the thumb stick into the Gravis, and converting the whole thing to bluetooth.
