While this mod has a better dpad than the regular joycon; it's still not as good as it could be. It lacks a proper pivot center and Street Fighter motion moves; do not come out as good as other controllers with dpad or even the analog stick of the joycon. Its good for plat formers that do not require many diagonal movements.
Why do you need this everyone complains about the lack of a dpad is not an issue unless it is retro style games which 8bitdo makes controllers for so this is pointless except for portable mode that i have no argument for and if you have the money to pull apart your 70 dollar controllers without a looming fear of breaking them then thats you blablabla
I lost this argument when i only have Mario kart mario odyssey and botw
I love my switch but I hate switching (ahem) between my Switch pro controller and my Xbox one controller, I hate that the buttons are in different positions so it takes me a while to adjust between the two.
I'd like a mod that swaps the buttons so that the pro controllers buttons are in the same place as the Xbox one controllers buttons.
My guess on why no D pad on swicth. Is because Nintendo wanted to make both joycons equal (1 joy stick, 4 buttons, +/- button, home and camera button, shoulder buttons, the 2 smaller buttons on the side of joycons, and sync button) so when it came down to 2 player game play both were equal.
I was looking into getting something JUST like this. In white tho but what kind of screwdriver would be needed exactly & from 1-10 is it worth this? I'd mainly be playing portable for the most part & not via the TV (i will sometimes but not always) Great video btw.
just did this to mine with the ice blue. looks fantastic, and i totally love the dpad, also i think it looks good with the colored buttons
imo the dpad is okay when using the joycon on its own, like he said
also fyi the dpad version comes with replacement SL/SR buttons that match the shell
not too difficult to do, except for the ZL/ZR buttons and the ribbon cables, just make sure you have some tweezers and a plastic pry tool to help, also ofc the right screwdrivers
These things always feel like a mess. Either the buttons are off, either set of shoulder buttons feel strange or the rumble is messed up. Whoever cuts the plastic on these is doing so below average at best, but you sure can ignore all those flaws when your 2D games feel significantly better with that d-pad, the only part of these controllers that feels premium.
Once Nintendo has a set of d-pad Joy-Cons, though, you better believe everyone will sell these. I just don't see people keeping them since the plastic being unevenly cut most of the time results in strange functionality.
I switched one of my left joycons (grey) to one of these d-pad joycons (went with white) just a couple weeks ago and I love it! It works and feels like a great d-pad and can't wait to try more 2D platformers with it (like Super Meat Boy). I have plenty of extra controllers for the living room so I don't mind giving up one joy-con to have a d-pad while playing portable (which is when I use the switch most of the time anyways).
