Replacement for the Pac-Man Partycade joystick. Factory joystick started going bad in less than 30 days so we bought this replacement with the wiring harness included. Perfect fit and simple to install. We swapped out the Sanwa mounting plate for the factory mounting plate and everything was a direct fit. We bought the 2 lb spring and the 4 lb spring. Personally for the Pac-Man game I like the 2 lb spring, the 4 lb did not seem nearly as responsive.
Item arrived in good time, and I guess it’s my fault for assuming, but when your site is selling these with the specific label of “for Arcade1up” I guess I would have expected not to have to still drill holes into my SF2 control deck to make this fit... this is basically just the same Sanwa stick I could have bought anywhere else for ~$5 cheaper...
Its listed for the Arcade1Up as we include a plug and play harness for the joystick. If you buy one off another site be prepared to cut and splice wires and figure out what wire does what. At the end of the day I guess it all depends on what you value your time at.
It's no secret that as cool as Arcade1up cabinets are, they are built with cost savings in mind. That's why button and joystick mods are musts if you plan on putting a good number of hours on your cabinet. With the Sanwa's, not only do they feel much better and offer a superior gaming experience over the stock sticks, but I also don't worry as much about my 9 year old son and his friends being rough on them. These are high quality, durable joysticks that will provide years of reliable fun!
The wave 1 joystick is garbage, this Sanwa was pretty easy to install; definitely worth the money.
Great company to deal with.highly recommended
