With the modern gaming on retro controls epiphany still searing in my mind I set about designing a second version of the layout. I tried to consider the needs of the most complex game I was playing at the time, control-wise. Guild Wars 2 became the template for number of and positing of additional controls.
Here is the end result. The console surface is now 1200mm x 450mm and the Eye of Judgment integration has been discarded. I have decided that I can make a separate board for EoJ later on.
