    The button layout on the HSS-0136 is the most intriguing button layout I've ever seen. The way it's aligned is perfect for 4-button games too (SNK-games, TvC, VF, etc...)!

    Past mods I've done with this model (well, cheap knock-offs but happened to bear the SEGA letters underneath the art):

    I love my Agetec.

    @Scabby: That's fucking great. Your "sleeper" agetec stick. That's actually exactly what i want to do to mine. I need to get a dremel first though. (around xmas i'd assume, as a gift from the Wife®). Keep that thing original looking, but beef up the innards.
    About how long did that take?
    Ragequitting; consider it the real-life snap back. Kickin' your arse so hard, you're knocked off line.

    Without further ado, my three Sega joysticks...

    First up, the Mission Stick...

    DCP_0744R.jpg

    Originally released around the time of WingArms on the Sega Saturn, this joystick was also compatible with all three Panzer Dragoon releases on the Saturn. It also had undocumented compatibility with the Saturn port of MechWarrior 2. I ended up playing with it on MW2 more than anything else. Roll response felt "heavy" on WingArms; the Japanese digital pad was better and actually helped you feel the difference of the prop fighters whereas they all felt the same on the Mission Stick. I guess it was okay on the PD games but the regular digital pad still felt better.

    There was a rumor going around that at one time Sega considered releasing an add-on joystick so the Mission Stick would be useful with Virtual-On. The MS joystick could be detached and mounted on either side of the central base for left- or right-handed play. I kept mine default (right-handed) because it felt more comfortable that way in spite of my left-handedness.

    Here's a pic of the Mission Stick's bottom showing the bolts and detachable stick cord that would enable side-swapping and the possibility of an add-on stick...

    DCP_0745R.jpg

    The famous Saturn Twin Stick for Virtual-On...

    DCP_0746R.jpg

    Way better looking than the Dreamcast Version and miles ahead of the XBox 360 edition even if the 360 stick has better Sanwa parts. The Saturn version's decals put it ahead of the other two IMHO. It LOOKS like an arcade stick!

    Never bothered getting the DC Twin Stick. There were adaptors available to use Saturn controllers on the DC at any rate.

    Finally, my modded Agetec. I spray-painted the body white with Dupli-Color for Fabric and Vinyl, replaced the original joystick with an LS-32-01, and swapped out the original 30mm buttons for Sanwa plug-ins. I also added 20mm button holes for Start, Select, Home, and an RJ-45 pass-through jack. All I need to get are another 20mm button (preferably black), an RJ-45 jack, and the MC Cthulu.

    I glued my VMU slot holder to the back to distinguish the case and get use out of what would have otherwise been extra (discardable) plastic.

    The VMU window DOES light up but I have to get an internal mirror to direct and intensify the red LED light. I kept the yellow Start button and its switch to activate the LED.


    And those are my Sega sticks... I may get another Agetec for a mod project in the future. Really like that case!

    There was more than one Skull-One VF-1S in the Macross feature film, "Do You Remember Love?"

    The VF-1S Valkyrie fighter (original Skull-One) everyone remembers is Roy Fokker's. After he was killed in the movie, a new Skull-One (VF-1S) was commissioned and Maximillian Jenius (aka Max Sterling in the rest of the world) was assigned it. His VF-1S had blue trim as opposed to the previous fighter's yellow trim.

    Max didn't remain in command of VF-1 Skull Squadron for too long as he was taken prisoner by the Meltrandi in the movie after a furious dogfight with Miriya.

    Hikaru Ichijo (aka Rick Hunter) was assigned to a third VF-1S (done up with red trim) when he succeeded Max as squadron leader of VF-1 Skull Squadron in the movie.


    It goes without saying that if I DO get another Agetec in the next year that it WILL be done up as a squadron mate/successor to Roy's VF-1S. I've had the artwork for it done for months.

    The artwork for this first Agetec stick was all sourced from the Internet. The next stick I have planned consists of artwork (with the exception of the squadron badge) that was sourced from scans. I have several Macross/Robotech artbooks including the storyboard book/visual continuity script to Macross:DYRL.



    NOTICE: The Japanese confusingly use VF-1 as both a squadron designation and a mecha design in Macross.

    In US Navy terminology usage, "VF" always stands for "naval fighter squadron." Ironically, there are no VF's in service since the F-14 Tomcat was retired in 2006 and replaced by the F/A-18E and F Super Hornets. All VF's have been redesignated "VFA" which stands for "Naval Strike Fighter Squadron." This designates squadrons that have aircraft that are designed for at least dual roles -- air combat and surface attack.

    There was a VF-1 in US Navy service. It was called Wolfpack and featured Tomcats with visually attractive wolf markings. These markings were originally red stripes and a wolf's head on both the forward areas of the F-14 fuselage and the vertical tail fins.. Later Navy reduced visibility rules saw the red replaced with grey coloring.

    VF-1 was the designation for Roy Fokker's Skull Squadron in Macross (and Robotech) as well as the designation for the series' main aerial combat mecha. Fokker's Skull-1 VF-1S stood out with its bright pirate striping as well as the unique robot head in transformed mode. No other VF-1 Valkyries in the original Macross TV series had robot heads with 4-laser cannon turrets... It was apparently a very uncommon model in mainline Macross continuity. Other Valkryie models were the mainstay tan VF-1A with single turret heads in robot form and the twin-turreted (robot head) VF-1J which was the model originally flown by Hikaru Ichijo through the halfway mark of the series; Max and Miriya were assigned their own VF-1J's painted in their distinctive colors (blue and red with white striping; negatives of Hikaru's VF-1J) as of episode 27 onwards. Miriya's red VF-1J made an appearance in an episode of Macross 7 (TV series) where it was destroyed.

    Okay... It's a white HRAP 3 (Japan-only, Amazon-exclusive) with online art.

    Did it up late last year. Fan of the white case, not such a big fan of the JLF-only mount!

    DCP_0754R.jpg

    Besides installing an extra JLF spring and discarding the Hori stock buttons (24mm and 30mm) for Sanwa plug-ins, I removed the carriage bolts and installed cap socket screws. Much easier maintenance from top! HRAP's are very frustrating to service through the baseplate because of all the screws, bolts, hex nuts, and washers you have to remove. 6 versus 26-28 parts isn't an even contest!

    It also has an Art Hong plexi on top of the art. The plexi has some scratches but they really don't show well unless you look for them.

    DCP_0757R.jpg

    Next mod for this stick might be a Flash PCB mod from Toodles when he perfects his unit. It's just practical to mod this stick base for Seimitsu and it's one of those units I really would care to keep near stock condition in case I decide to sell (which is unlikely). I really do like this HRAP -- my favorite one by far.

    The Flash PCB is the major reason I'm keeping JLF's in some joysticks otherwise my favorite most used sticks are getting Seimitsu joysticks... The next JLF swap might be with an LS-40-01.

    I got mine HSS-0130 with og box & all papers. Now I'm moding it but trying to keep all as virgin as i can.

    I received Seimitsu buttons (og colors) & circular restrictors from akihabarashop not long ago.

    Here is unmoded 1st player side:

    I used DB-25 Breakout boards for mine. I took the entire stock panel out, the hole is big enough for it to fit thank god..... I then placed one end of the DB-25 cable (2 total, one for each side) inside the case.... that worked for me and I didn't have to drill anything.


    Also, try monoprice.com for your cables.

    I'm out of town for the holidays but when I get back I'll take pictures of everything. I'm going to buy a better box for my boards as right now they are in a crappy little Michaels box.

    I'd definitely recommend project boxing it. I haven't wanted to use any other stick since I've finished this project.....

    We are long overdue!

    Good luck with that!

    Sega didn't even manufacture enough Saturn-style pads for the PS2, let alone make any major hardware accessories other than a limited run of Virtua Sticks for the PS3!

    As far as I'm concerned, Sega has been blowing it since the end of the Dreamcast.

    It's not so much a lack of respect for their fanbase as being TOTALLY CLUELESS on what to do next!

    I have a lot of respect for much of Sega's hardware and software product before the Dreamcast was killed off but frankly they've been operating like a chicken with its head cut off ever since IMHO.

    They're MUCH better for games other than Nights. As creative as Nights is, the control is wonky and I never felt I had full control over the character. Still have that game (two copies in fact!) plus the Nights: Christmas special that came bundled with an issue of NEXT Gen Magazine.

    The only reason I have two copies of Nights was because in the last store I saw the Sega analog controller in, Meijer, it was much cheaper to buy the controller with the game than separately. I told an employee this didn't make sense and she agreed with me but that's the way the store handled pricing on the game!

    If I were to get another 3D pad, I'd probably get a Japanese version. I always wanted those white pads that emulated the White Saturn digital pad. I always felt that the pads that came with the White Saturn were mimicking the different colored buttons the N64 controller had, too!

    The funnest games I played with the 3D pad were Manx TT Extreme Bike (best way to play that game!) plus the Saturn's classic FPS games -- PowerSlave, Quake, and Duke Nukem. Those last three games were developed by one of the few companies (aside from Tecmo with the Saturn port of Dead or Alive 1) that came to grips with the Saturn's wonky 3-D graphics chips = Lobotomy. Sadly, Lobotomy went the way of the dodo when their best software engineers left the company including the guy who designed the excellent graphics engine that was used for PowerSlave and the other two great FPS games released on the Saturn.

    The Saturn never really had a chance in the US... Negative early word of mouth, disgust with console's initial price ($400 US!), and the comparisons of early Saturn games versus PS1 first-gen games worked against the system even though in general I liked the Sega games (VF series, Daytona, Sega Rally, VF kids, Panzer Dragoon) much better than their PS1 counterparts (I couldn't stand either Ridge Racer or the first Tekken game...). Sega games just generally played better IMHO and rewarded you with long hours of enjoyment. I got bored quickly with PS1 games in general. Those of us that stayed with the Saturn and imported games for it found it a much better platform for 2D in general and especially Capcom and SNK fighting games ported to the system AFTER Capcom and SNK released their proprietary RAM expansion cartridges (4MB and 1MB respectively).

    I was never fully happy with the PS1 and to this day I prefer the Saturn for its greater versatility and much better control pads. I got over my Sony bias when I bought a slimline PS2 (figured it'd be much more reliable than the "fat" design and I was proven right!) and found that everything that I hated about the PS1 was fixed in the PS2 including the controllers. DS2's and DS3's are much more precise than the DS1's and 2D games are also better on the PS2 because of the expanded RAM over the PS1's inadequate system RAM. For that matter, the Saturn was also short on RAM but handled 2-D much better because it had 2-D hardware built into unlike the PS1!

    Dudes... quick question:

    Who makes the stock parts on the Agetec Dreamcast stick? Is it someone specific, i.e. Seimitsu, etc. or is it just generic Agetec parts?

    Updated the HSS.

    After a couple of buddies and I got down on some Vampire Savior for Saturn, a couple of the QD's came loose....it bugged me so I rewired the entire stick with better quality Wire and QD's......

    Before:

    download.jpg

    Only thing I changed Visually were the 2 Start Buttons.... I don't know why but the yellow has always looked out of place here....I changed them to White 245mm Seimitsu screw in's and to me it looks much cleaner.....

    On to the Guts....

    The stick is set up for Project Boxes so I can use it for any system / Game at any time.....
    IMG_20110312_163818.jpg

    Used 18 Gauge wire with Soldered and Crimped QD's. Tried to keep it a bit more clean this time around rather than just stuffing it into the case.

    IMG_20110312_165244.jpg

    Nice big spaces to run and manage your wires.

    So here is how everything is wired up.....

    DSCN1223.jpg

    Wired everything to 2 DB-25 Breakout Boards. Run a DB-25 cable to a connector that has leads matching the Pinout number and then the other ends attach to your PCB (in this case a MC Cthulhu ).
    Everything fits inside the back case, with no modification at all....This is the reason this is the greatest stick of all time.....

    Awesome job!
    Where did you get that db25 breakout?

    Nice job on the MK stick too. That came out great.
    If you find the MVC3 movelist I can print it out for you.
