Joystick are very expensive! i found the solution!
« on: May 05, 2020, 08:28:51 PM »
When a quarantine started a month and a half ago here, I decided to generate some projects.
Among them, it was turning an old steering wheel into a lever joystick for my future combat game.

Since the shops were closed, he had to do it Mc giver type, with what he found ...

After making several designs on paper, and putting together many pieces, I managed to build this Machiavellian device.

A difficult objective was not to have axis deviation, which solved with 2 wires.

So, without no more introducction, i present to you, my new joystick



the design, very far of reality



i change the links, maybe google photos is not good for share links

Images not visible/loading (only a gray stop sign).

Such projects are interesting - nice to see people being able to tinker about such stuff.

Nice work - the concept artwork is something else on its own ;)

steampunk is this kinda weird strike that - intriguing fashion thing - they have one of their biggest annual events apparently in a city 20 miles north of me in Lincoln. Folk wear timepieces , pipes with a kinda dystopian feel to it all, its really quite fascinating stuff.
