I dunno man, did you ever try the original Wii classic controller? Not the classic controller pro, but the SNES shaped one. That was... a weird d-pad.

Yes, I have one. Switch pro controller is worse.

Still the shittiest dpad Nintendo has ever made, but it will be like 98% functional after this mod.

xbox one got it right, but it doesn't have the silicon feel

its not my current favorite, but the X1 controller is a surprising improvment on the 360's. I've been making a game this weekend and switching between the two controllers and its honestly night and day, wowee. It's still not the ~type~ of dpad I like (i'm a fan of Sega style) but its actually usable now which is already an improvement over the 360

GBA has similar tubing, I think part of the feel is how tall the silicon dome things are hmmmn...

Edit: Say Topher, ever pretty up your arcade sticks?

if they don't fix this by the time i get around to getting a pro controller, i may refer back here to get some assistance from you on the hardware. Why oh why is the dpad such an underestimated piece of a controller these days?




See that tube in the middle of the Switch's rubber membrane? Cut that out of there so there's just a hole, like the SNES one.

I think its cause its quite fidgety ? no idea, like if you actually try and go in to fix it up you'll find yourself going through multiple variations of methods and there will always be a little bit of something that will feel off. I've yet to find the real math behind it. However I did manage to make the og GBA have the xbox one dpad feel, messy solder job though, should've exposed some other contact points I guess.

The center stem is too short and the membrane has a tube in the middle of it to keep it in place. So pressing left or right will register as "up" about 30% of the time.

Mine did this, so I sent it in for a replacement. New one did it too. So I opened it up to see wtf was happening and that's what I found. Cutting the tube out of the middle of the membrane solves the issue completely, and now I can even play Tetris with it. Before I couldn't even navigate menus without getting incorrect inputs.

I told some people I know at Ninty about it and asked them to send it up the ladder, hopefully they'll revise something. Looking forward to seeing if the new Splatoon pro controller is any different.

If there is any manga that will get me a gym membership it's this

I do like them ink splotches on the splatoon controller.

I think switch will be the first time I'll ever consider getting a second one of and then selling main unit to keep the other extras.
