Ok I am giving my take on this, you might need an ipac board https://www.arcadeworlduk.com/categories/Arcade-Parts/Printed-Circuit-Boards/Interface-Boards/

You can then buy buttons and cables and then run it as you would a keyboard.

This is a UK shop, but depending upon which Country you are in, you will find shops like this in your local Country.

The other cheaper option is using a keyboard but that would not look the same.

Here is a video for doing something simpler

This is just a hack and probably not for the faint hearted.

A keyboard encoder is still cheap enough rather than say an ipac board.

I had already posted a link to their website, see above ;)

I said this was a UK shop, but would have such shops in different Countries ;)
