I think it already is. The "What Stick Should I Buy" Thread is linked to this one.
For me, SF4 got fighting games backward - combos are supposed to be easy and reversals are supposed to be hard.-Mike_Z

The soda comment is an analogy for the different brands of arcade parts out there. If Sanwa is Coke, and Seimitsu is Pepsi, Crown would be RC Cola, that makes Happ Deer Park Spring Water. IL would be Evian or maybe Fiji Spring Water, LOL.

I'm probably the only person insane enough to go get another Hori VLX even though I'd be better off with a Qanba Q4 due to it being multiplatform compatible. Unfortunately I had to sell my first one but there is something about it I couldn't find in any other fightstick. After I installed my 8-way gate into it it became the best stick ever to me. All I needed was that ps360 pcb and I was good to go. I'll get one again in the near future and I'll be working on my Metal Gear theme on it too.

No Need to wait for the PS360, there always the Kitty. The VLX version of the kitty is very easy to install, and it gives you all the systems the MC Cthulhu does.
It plugs into the existing PCB and connections, and the VLX Kitty is fully reversible.

I am also a pad warrior and I was wondering if there's any cross platform (360/PS3) pads that exist, or at least any tutorials in how to mod one to be cross platform. Google has failed me.

Phreakazoid187 did it first. He even did it with a Cthulhu and Imp.
But it is a lot easier with Dualstrike SMD. I could do it!

Alright. I'll just ask here, even though I probably won't like the answer. I really want a TE(non-s, I like the original look better), but as things stand I am fairly tight for cash. Should I wait it out and buy the TE I want, or should I put my skills to the test and build a custom stick? (Which I may find to like more)
Fact is, I play on Sanwa buttons quite frequently, and I want to get a stick to use on the go(I play on a mame cabinet running various console emu's for the arcade feel). If anyone knows of a place where I can find a modable stick for a fairly cheap price(goodwill?) let me know. I am not afraid to do some soldering, so I can easily hack a xbox pad. Heck, I even have a PS3 controller with dead analog sticks, so I could go either way. A sanwa button and joystick set is $53(8 button, and a JLF) and then the pad to hack is another $25 for xbox. The TE can be found for around $120, and I get a lot of extra features with it(turbo and such), so which one is the smarter choice for a semi-beginner?

I've done literally zero research into this, but is it possible that SE stands for Seimitsu and SA stands for Sanwa, instead of Special Edition and Special Addition? I could see a case of Engrish in this situation, but this makes more sense to me.

No, the SA stands for Special Addition, which has SAnwa parts.
No, the SE stands for Special Edition, which has SEimitsu parts.
There is a play on letters there.
But SA does not stand for SAnwa, it means Special Addition.
But SE does not stand for SEimitsu, it means Special Edition.

You can make sure what the SA and SE stands for, on the Hori website itself:
SA Example: http://www.hori.jp/products/ps3/controller/realarc_pro3_sa/
SE Example: http://www.hori.jp/products/ps3/controller/realarc_pro3_se/

I would add it in later. I left alot out since this is a epically huge field of information, and when i can't find info I go with out. Oh yes I am purposely leaving out huge numbers of sticks still, mainly because they are for a too niche of a market, overly specialized, a true collectors item or not worth of notice.
And I do not recommend anyone getting that Meh of a stick any ways.
Moment hitboxes are made for retail is when I would consider add them to the guide. Everything here is a production model retail stick, mods are only mentions as a factor for choosing a stick, same factors would include price, quality and what system(s) that stick is made for ect. Hitboxes right now fall under customs which is outside the reach of this guide.

I'm used to just buying multiple pads when I need to, and not making a car-like investment on a stick to mod it. But if someone found an easy way to dual mod the PDP pad even I may be interested lol

Thanks for the feedback were trying to get these things in retail ASAP. As soon as that happens il be back with more solid info.
Great thread btw, really diverts the stick newbies to educating themselves

Oh I did not know you were going into actual production, I though everything was going to be to order.
\Most of my guide is based off other peoples work logs, mod guides and customer reviews. So soon as I get some independent data, I would start a entry for your sticks Controllers.
