    Hello - for anyone that owns the TE2 and needs replacement button rings:

    te2-ringpack-front-coil-8pak__88849.1483828711.1280.1280.jpg?c=2

    https://www.focusattack.com/t-e-2-spacer-for-sanwa-30mm-obs-series-pushbuttons-8-pak/

    Also sold in single rings if you only need one.

    Some have asked about logo keychains. I made a few here:

    mini-keychain-w-keyring__79582.1483829182.1280.1280.jpg?c=2

    They're just 75 cents. Also have a few additional designs as well for just 20 cents more.

    https://www.focusattack.com/1x1-inch-mini-logo-keychain/

    Though some might be interested. Sorry I haven't been active much lately - working on a new addition to the store that I hope you'll find worthwhile.

    Forgot to add:

    I get many requests to print artwork or cut plexi for non-commercial joysticks, or custom builds. While cutting plexi is not possible as I usually don't have the hardware to confirm, and it takes a lot of time, I can offer custom prints with the cutlines available for you to cut with exacto. 11x17 posters are also possible. A few people have taken advantage of that already.

    I'm finishing one project this month, then plan to roll out additional Fightsticks starting February. I have a lot of the older ones on hand: HRAP 3 for PS3, Hori Edge, SCV from MadCatz, MadCatz VS, Hori RAP V import model, Venom, MAKEStick, and so forth. I'll also see about whether the Qanba Crystal, Obsidian, Dragon, and Razer Panthera can receive art.

    Glad to be of service! I know that consistent supply restocks are still an issue for us. In May this year, I have an initiative to significantly reduce some of the out of stock issues that appeared during a good portion of 2016 into this quarter.

    Just to verify. A .187 to 5 pin conversion harness would work for putting a HAPP/IL lever into a joystick made from the internal parts of a HRAP2 right?

    I believe that the harness can connect an IL or Happ lever to a 5-pin connector. However, I'm not sure if the HRAP 2 has enough clearance to accomodate that large a joystick lever.

    Hello Focus Attack,

    I am looking for an Actuator for my HORI RAP 4 KAI. I want to reduce the "dead zone" on my Hayabusa stick. What should I buy ?

    And if there is no easily available solution which stick should I buy. Looking for something that will easily fit into the Hori and has a Octagonal Gate.

    It sounds like you'll do well with the @kowal 1mm oversize actuator for Sanwa JLF, which is compatible with the Hayabusa joystick lever:

    https://www.focusattack.com/kowal-1mm-oversize-actuator-for-sanwa-jlf-series-joystick/

    Additionally, you can get the Kowal Octopus to get octagonal control on your existing lever:

    Hello!

    Just wanted to post a few updates for anyone interested:

    Qanba Obsidian and Dragon pre-orders will arrive next week. It takes a few days to ship from California to PA by LTL. Once they arrive, staff will begin shipping the units out. I'll have a few extra Obsidian and Dragon units on hand. There is one Dragon unit at the warehouse now - an order that was bounced back from the post office.

    Second, restocks of Sanwa and Seimitsu are coming early next week. As mentioned prior, I'm working to significantly reduce out of stock issues starting in May by getting us to several months worth of stock across most products at the store, and then topping off each month. While customer runs of a single product are inevitable, my hope is to have most of the items you want in stock at any time.

    Third, I was lucky enough to team up with Udon Entertainment to release the first issue of Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers comic with an exclusive X-Men vs Street Fighter homage cover!

    sfvsds-banner__35413.jpg?t=1485394886

    Also giving away a MadCatz TE2+ customized with the main illustration as drawn by Jeffrey "Chamba" Cruz, plus full size poster!

    If you're interested, drop by here for details on ordering and entering:

    Ah I see. Understood - I believe that the conversion harness will work. The wiring lengths weren't designed for the larger Happ or IL models, but with some adjustment, should work.

    BTW I have been looking for something similar to a "Screen protector" for the HORI RAP 4. The HORIs face-plate is like a magnet for finger and palm prints. I was hoping I could find something that would protect it from scratches and stuff.

    Unfortunately I don't know of anything that could serve as a protective film specifically for that purpose. If anyone else here has applied a product to their Fightstick to protect against scratches and smudges, I'd like to know.

    I'm afraid not anytime soon - the costs per unit when purchased in bulk is still pretty high and the MOQ was substantial, which is why I'd strayed from them. I can ask for pricing to see if it's changed for the better.

    Entries are one per order. If you order more than once, you'll receive another entry. I'm considering ways to create bonus entries that also tie into your order ID.

    Afraid that I don't yet. I'm looking into Red White and Blue RAP v4s as my distributor got them a few weeks ago, but I don't know of Hori officially releasing the buttons in those colors outside of matte black. I know they are being sold by themselves, but I don't know if these are swapped out from the existing RAP4s for other buttons or something else. I'm working to get the black matte buttons in next restock.

    Can you please mention your order ID so I can check when this order was placed, so I cross-check with our most recent restock of those screws? This is the first I'm hearing about this from anyone, and @Jenni did not change the product item when she restocked last time, so it is possible that if there are some kind of lettering on the screws, they were recently updated to have it, or the company sent them by mistake.

    Yes - I do see that in the second photo. Personally I didn't notice the markings and as I've sold them for about two years now, never heard anyone have an issue about the markings. My photographer at the time potentially took the first photo with the markings not shown - highly coincidental, but definitely wasn't intended to fool anyone.

    @P. Gorath if you want I can refund you the screws cost. I'll simply make note that the silver screws have markings on one side.

    I'll pick up what's available to me. It's likely only 30mm that I can get a hand in. My supplier said last night that we're potentially looking 3-4 weeks from now.
    geni wrote: »

    As of now, I won't have access to color ones. Unless players are okay to engage in a swap initiative - swapping the color RAP v4 for Sanwa or Seimitsu buttons and I can part them out, or Hori decides to allow sale of their color buttons and my supplier can get them, I'm afraid my options are limited.

    Question about scanline generator's /S/ switch. This thing activates v-sync, right? Should I turn vsync through videocard/game settings off first before activating it on the generator?

    Can you let me know what you planned to connect SCAN.DL to? Are the resolutions you intend to play anything other than 640x480 @ 60Hz or 1024x768 @ 60Hz.

    Switching either setting won't take much effort, so I would suggest that any vsync settings aren't activated on the videocard. Instead start with recognizing the resolution you plan to play your games on. If they aren't the two resolutions that were mentioned prior, turn vsync on the SCAN.DL and see if the scanlines appear.

    I'm afraid not - that device was not programmed or designed to function with the TE in any way. It would essentially replace the existing motherboard. If you have questions about your order's functionality and need direct assistance, emailing support@focusattack.com, or posting a message to @jpenguin77 - our tech support contact - can offer assistance.

    You would need to solder to the turbo panel. There are a couple tutorials on accessing the TE panel in SRK for the UFB that applies for the buttons you need. You would need to solder a wire power (VCC 5v) and one for ground and solder those directly to the small Brook board. Then take the wires from the button harness that comes with the PS3/PS4 and solder to the points shown in the post linked below: boardforums.shoryuken.com/discussion/comment/10574104/#Comment_10574104 Like @jmanDMC said, hmu if you have anymore questions for me on the support page.

You would need to solder a wire power (VCC 5v) and one for ground and solder those directly to the small Brook board. Then take the wires from the button harness that comes with the PS3/PS4 and solder to the points shown in the post linked below: boardforums.shoryuken.com/discussion/comment/10574104/#Comment_10574104 Like @jmanDMC said, hmu if you have anymore questions for me on the support page.

    but if it was a PS3 TE then it would be plug n play? The Brook board now has pins soldered onto the places where I would need wire, so wouldn't I need to basically build a new harness?

    Sorry for a delayed response from @jpenguin77 - he is attending graduation this week and is out of town. He'll follow up soon.

    Sorry, yes am on my way to Orlando for commencement but you would just need to solder directly on top of the main Brook board to get vcc and ground. The home and touch (or share or whatever) wires can just have the qd's removed and soldered on the solder points on the panel.

    Ha...I didn't take into account that it would be impossible to install your usb cable into a TE shell. Now I'm faced with either drilling the plastic out or de-soldering your board's usb socket and soldering in the old usb cable's four wires somewhere.

    Also it would be extremely helpful if there was any kind of documentation of the pinouts for the breakout board. It's complete guesswork without it.

    What you do is actually disassemble the TE case then there shouldn't be a need to dremmel. When I mentioned soldering I advised the smaller Brook board points which there is a guide on.

    Let me know if you need anyone assistance at support.focusattack.com

    Nope, the TE case does not disassemble in a way that would prevent the need to drill.

    I can't solder directly to the smaller brook board because those points are already taken up by pins from the breakout board. I had to desolder some of the breakout board pins just to attempt to solder the usb wires to them, but of course the solder pads came off in the process so I'm back to having to go buy some drill bits (and not having to solder was the entire point of springing for the pre-soldered kit in the first place).
