    I'd like to sign up. I'm in the west end of Toronto, Rexdale specifically. I'm a modder and stick builder. Haven't built a stick in a while though. heres what i can do:

    controller hacking, if there's a slagcoin.com diagram, i can hack it.

    Button, joystick and art swapping no problem.

    Small repair and soldering jobs.

    Never attempted a dual mod, but i'm pretty sure i can handle it.

    as for pricing, i work pretty cheap when it's on my own time or when i'm free.

    Wow, great idea for a thread. I'll toss my hat in:

    I'm based out of Austin, TX, and I'll do work local to the area (not accepting mail order jobs for the time being). I also travel to tourneys, and do around 1-2 tournaments a month (esp majors).

    Services offered:
    Dual mods, RJ45, RJ45 cables, case assembly, button/stick replacement, wiring, case mods, troubleshooting, etc etc etc etc. I likely do it, or can figure out how really damn quickly. :p

    I would like to add my name to the list. I'm located in Columbia, SC.

    Been a long time since I built a stick, but I can still padhack.

    Services offered: dual modding (worked with chImps, TEasys, and Dual Strikes), padhacking, button/stick swapping.

    If it's a job I don't know how to do, I can easily learn.

    I decided that I should be added to the list. I only like to work locally, I don't like shipping out stuff, and I'm not always available, sometimes not in the mood, but doesn't hurt to PM me.

    I can do: Dual Mods, RJ-45 mods. Project Box sticks, and experimental stuff like FrankenFightPads.

    I also have some ability to do some wood work like drilling and routing, but don't have the time to make cases or full customs.

    I've made about 20-30 sticks, wrote some tutorials for the community in the read first sticky.

    I'm in the San Jose Bay Area, CA, Mountain View more specifically.

    Here is an album of all the stuff I've made.

    Okay. I'll add myself. I was informed I'm okay. I have half-year in age according to SRK rules. I was worried I had to wait until the day I had half-year of age.

    Location: Statesboro, GA, at Georgia Southern University.

    I do pretty much any conventional stick mod or build (But if you want a stick that has vibrating fart noises, you should really see Gummowned). That includes LEDs, Dual Mods, MC Cthulhu + RJ-45, RJ-45 system cables, etc.

    I'll wire custom builds, but I cannot make a case.

    I do project box stuff as well. Those are cool.

    I'll help diagnose any stick problems or mods that you may have, if you have something wacky wrong with your stick.

    I'll do mods over mail through request. Shipping is somewhat of a hassle.

    I'll also tutor soldering, the technical aspects of arcade stick, or mathematics if you prefer to learn.

    I think I'll add myself to the list. I can do artwork swap, basic or advanced padhacks (including dual mods, MC Cthulhus with detachables RJ45 cables with/without Neutrik or DIN connectors), LED mods. I used to make wooden cases (real wood, not MDF) but I won't do it anymore (I still have a few different oak prototypes if you're interested).
    Living in Lyon/France and would love to help the VS fighting scene this way. Contact me if you're interested.

    Name: gahrling

    Main website: NeoEmpire.com

    I've been modding and repairing sticks now for the last 5 years. The services I can offer are:
    • Electronics - single/dual/tri+ modding
    • Upgrades to modular support (RJ-45 jacks & cables, DIN's, USB jacks)
    • Sale and installation of Sanwa and Seimitsu parts (joysticks, buttons, accessories)
    • Sale and installation of various PCB's (Cthulhu, Multi Console Cthulhu, Dual Strike, Datel ArcadePro/Paewang, IMP, 360 Fightpad, PSX, Dreamcast)
    • Plexiglass panels for Mad Catz TE sticks
    • Sale of ready made modified arcade sticks - Agetec, SE, TE, FS3, HRAP3, Namco, Sammy, Hori PS2 (small)

    Things I don't currently do are LED mods, custom artwork designing & printing, building stick shells from scratch (though I am currently restoring a small selection of ready made, natural wood custom shells). Though other modders found via the NeoEmpire forums can do this.

    I have an extensive list of positive feedback - to view this you will need to register with NeoEmpire.com so you can access the Selling & Wanted section and Modding Workshop areas. Direct links:

    Just search for my user name or contact me directly via PM or email.

    Prefer meeting up in person rather than posting sticks out for a few reasons, mainly that it's much easier to fix any problems, there's no postage charge, and sending a stick through the post can cause problems if dropped/knocked around. Central London is ideal.

    Reliable modders in US, UK and abroad: Client referrals from focusattack.com

    Hey all,

    I'm Jaleel from focusattack.com - a store dedicated to the fighting game scene with joystick parts, merch and apparel. :) Check it out at focuattack.com sometime.

    I would like to create a list of reputable mod services around the US and Europe for customers on my site. The list would contain links to SRK profiles and/or merchant reputation listings, separated by location and services offered.

    What I would like is your permission to include you on the list. Modders on the list would potentially receive additional clients from my store. I'm also working on a possible bulk discount towards product restocks. For example, if I'm ordering new PCBs, I can offer a discount for modders on the list that want to purchase several of them. This is a work in progress, however.

    I'll look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

    I do not mind being listed on your site. You can link them to my post or profile. I highly prefer local mods over mail. If it's local, I can set up an appointment time, work on their stick and get it back same day, in most cases. If it is over mail, you would usually get the stick when you do, and that means having to get to filling the order ASAP to keep the customer from waiting too long, because there is a whole return trip involved, too. I'll do over mail if requested. But, that's all I'd like to have known.

    I have been coming to this site since 2007 or so I believe, I use to provide modded Xbox 360 controllers and PSX controllers. I can solder just about any controller with wires for HAPP or Sanwa connectors. I have done dual mods for Chimp and Chutulhu with an RJ-45 adapter for extra console's such as gamecube or PS2. I can make any kind of cable, wether it's USB or out of Cat-5.

    I live in Kaneohe, HI. I can assist with any modding needed, I don't do photoshop but if you have the art you want, I can cut it for you and attach it to your stick. I can do just about any soldering service. I don't have set prices but can take "gifts" or "tips".
