faceplate
« on: February 04, 2019, 07:42 PM »
anyone try to swap the faceplace from a real 6 button genesis to get it's d-pad. the d-pad on the joyzz is fine but the sharper edges get to me after extended use. the up, down left right part of it is a tad wider with sharper edge as well. i tried to change the faceplate, and it seemed to almost fit perfectly but it was tad too tight. i'm thinking some sandpaper to get the PCB a bit more room would fix this, the only other issue would be that the hole for the usb on the top would be bigger as it had to fit a cord in there. any ideas on how to fill that space without it looking like crap?

nevermind, after searching a long time and sifting through all these comments about not being able to remove a dpad, i found a video that shows it only takes a darn spoon lol. i'd much rather keep the krikzz shell and just replace the dpad. again, nothing really wrong with the joyzz dpad (it is properly aligned) i just like the softer curved edges of the original 6 button dpad, and replacing it would make it perfect in my book.

got an original dpad on it, works really good, careful not to use the wrong base piece if you do this, i got them mixed up and one of them wasn't tight enough when i clipped the dpad back on it.
