Gameboy color buttons = goodness

Unread post by majorjim » Mon Oct 22, 2018 3:41 am

I just swapped out the original buttons for gameboy color ones and the difference is massive! I had to cut down the legs a little but as the buttons themselves are shorter than the I think too long original ones the button feel is so much nicer now! Better than an original gameboy!
I highly recommend you swap them out.

I can absolutely confirm that. I also had to sand down the legs a bit. The feel is perfect. 8-)

That's how it looks:

Depending on where you bought them from, and also how lazy you are, the pegs are very soft plastic and you can just squeeze them a bit with pliers.

No sanding req.
