GBA SP project help

I'm a student engineering and I have an assignment to make an object which involves movement. I've chosen to make a gameboy advance SP, but I'm having some issues. I was wondering if you would be able to help me with certain aspects.


I'm having a lot of issues with constraining the Dpad. (You have to be able to press up/down + left/right at the same time,  but without rotating around the axis). I made a sphere under the Dpad and removed a sphere in my base part. I added 2 angular constraints so now it kinda does what i want but not entirely. For the angles I have to constrain 176-180 with resting position at 178. I can't figure out how i can constrain 178-182° with 180 at resting position.

I also have no clue on how to stop it from rotating.


I've added my project as an attachment.
