This is a custom 8-way restrictor plate for an arcade joystick.


The joysticks I got for my arcade cabinet (http://www.arcadewinkel.nl/joysticks/balltop-arcadefighter-stick-rood) were fine, but I wasn't entirely happy with the restrictor plates that came with it. They worked fine in 4-way mode, but the 8-way mode was simply a square and that doesn't work nicely in most circumstances.

From what I can tell, the screws are placed differently on all joystick brands, so YMMV if you have a different one. I included the scad file if you want to play around with it (but it's not nicely parameterized).

There's not really much to instruct here:

  1. Stop playing on arcade cabinet
  2. Print restrictor plate(s)
  3. Remove existing restrictor plate(s)
  4. Place printed restrictor plate(s)

Thank you so much for this. Is there any chance you could make the same restrictor, but circular instead of octagonal? I have an ultrastik 360, and was curious about trying out a circular restrictor in it as it's an analog joystick.

Please join and add this thing to the group "pinball and arcade enthusiasts". Looks great!
