Why 14 buttons?
08/17/11 10:33 PM


New user and doing some reseach so I'll probably start several threads before plugging in the saw and drill. I'm sure most of these have been asked before so please bear with me.

The question for this thread is why 14 buttons with most of the joystick/button bundles on eBay?

I know that I can set them up in any configuration I like, but since most of the packages had 14 buttons there must be some standard configuration they're geared for.

Something like six buttons with each joystick plus two player start buttons seems reasonable until you consider there's no coin buttons or any control buttons for pause, enter, or exit.

Four buttons per stick plus two sets of coin/play leaves two for control. I just haven't seen a lot of panels with only 4 buttons per player.

So is there a 'standard' configuration?

Thanks!
