Hello, I would really like a mod that incorporates the Xbox elite dpad (or something infringement free) mod instead of an analog stick. Maybe an printed backing I can glue and stick? Need specs for cyborg analog stick backing.

Don't know if this is of use to you, but if you have a 3D printer (or access to one through friends, library, etc) you can have this file printed:

It is a collar you clamp around the thumbstich that limits your movement to 8 directions, allowing for tactile feedback about where your stick is going.

I like that, however the problem I’m having is not with finding up its the way my hand naturally grips the peripheral. My hands are pretty chewed up and I have had multiple wrist fractures so I am predisposed to strife instead of run forward.

If I understood the sentence correctly, then the fix to it is changing the angle on the thumbstick. You can set your ''up / forward'' (and other directions) even by pressing the thumbstick backwards, should you need to in the software.

I just bought a cyborg and while I love the way I can reach all the buttons now that I have adjusted everything to my hand, I just can't get warm with the analog stick in MMOs either. I'd rather have a 4-way d-pad that allows me to press two inputs at once. I've tried the octagon-ring and it just doesn't feel good either.

Would it be possible for you guys to come up with an alternative thumb-tower that just contains a good d-pad which allows inputs like "W+D", etc? Something you could sell in you shop?

Alternatively, does someone know a good and compact d-pad module that's compatible with the electronics of the Cyborg? I just found oversized, square pcbs with four buttons when I looked for it. If so, I could give it a spin.

Is your stick calibrated at all ?
Or is it calibrated for the use with the restrictor ring, if you use one ?
It should let you move WD or WA for example
