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 (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 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.
You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.-Mike_ZIf there's anything we do best, it's breaking games and then making everyone suffer with all the cheapness.-PersiaXOIf you're waiting for a fair & balanced game you're wasting your time.

That's not the only Macross-themed joystick that I own. There is another but it's NOT a Sega-branded joystick.

Finally got my HSS wired up and working with my MC Cthulu Boards.
Yet another reason this stick is awesome...... both DB 25 breakout boards fit in with no modding needed. LOVE IT.

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!
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.
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.

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?

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.
