    First custom stick, was a 6-button. To this day, I refuse to own anything with more.
    Feels good to re-post an old image.

    My Qanba 3-in1 6-button ice blue with SSF4 AE 3D art. Sanwa x6 30mm OBSC clear blue buttons plus one seimitsu 24mm PS-14-DNK clear blue for start button. Also my eightarc fusion ebony changed the plexi and panel with Qanba six button convertion panel and plexi sense eigtharc does not make a conversion kit at the moment, I added the MINSK! Germen art that came with my ice blue originally and the buttons are sanwa OBSC x6 30mm.6278977123_a3c49c94e3.jpg6279496176_bbf78115bf.jpg6282952589_24fc3df10c.jpg6283475262_5a83221fa3.jpg

    How the hell did I miss this thread!?
    This is the best thread on SRK, bar none.

    My recent stick:

    Another few to be added soon. :D

    You know after looking at yours I think I am going to have to add some black to the inserts of my buttons to make them look darker like yours and less white.

    Yeah I like how it looks too.
    It happend that way by chance; the artwork is mostly black except for guts, so 5 of the 6 buttons have inserts that are completely black. A good thing, since I screwed up a couple of the cutouts (I cut them too small so you could still see some white in the plunger).

    If you're referring to the bottom right panel that's not excess paint, thx for looking though.

    Yep it's from not sanding, not excess paint =] If you look closely I even left the arrow sticker on near the down-right of the joystick.

    Don't worry I seen worst wiring jobs than this. At least this isn't a rats nest.

    Sorry for the poor image quality, but it's difficult hobbling around on crutches trying to find out where my camera is, so I had to take this with my iPhone. What you see here, if it wasn't so blurry and fuzzy, is the first joystick that I have ever built. Completed after having to abandon my arcade cabinet build after finishing up the two player control panel for it and coming to the harsh reality that there would be no way I could fit a cabinet inside my house. Not wanting parts to go to waste, I took what was just collecting dust and put them into the stick you see here. Just picked up a USB A/B connector and a Chtulu from LizardLick so that I could use the stick on my PS3 and my PC. Started the stick up way back in February/March, but it still isn't 100% finished. Have some issues with some intermittent response on some buttons, and while laid out with the broken ankle I'm using my multimeter to try and find out where the issue is. I'm thinking that the braided wire used to make the connections is not really making a solid connection to the Chtulu and the screw terminals it uses. (The wires have been soldered to the microswitches hooked up to the buttons/joystick and are good solder joints). I have some spade terminals lying around, and I may try soldering the free ends of the wires to the spade terminals, then inserting the spade terminals into the screw spots on the Chtulu and screwing it down tightly, thus ensuring a solid connection. I also need to get the PS Home button to function properly.

    Anyway, I am a fan of the 6 button arrangement, as well as the straight across carpal-tunnel inducer and bat-top joystick as it reminds me of the SF cabinets I spent hours of my life on when I was growing up. :)

    You forget one important thing. Early versions of those had Sanwa JLWs, later versions had unnumbered Seimitsu sticks.
    How did you confirm that JLW presence was based on mfr date? Is it somewhere on the body?

    This HRAP2 was originally an 8-button stick:
    http://i376.photobucket.com/albums/oo202/CustomHapp/ArcanaHeart2.jpg

    When i ordered a new custom steel panel, lexan, and artwork---- 6 Button all the way!

    I also changed the layout from HRAP1 to the modern HRAP3, which i believe to be better.

Also my eightarc fusion ebony changed the plexi and panel with Qanba six button convertion panel and plexi sense eigtharc does not make a conversion kit at the moment, I added the MINSK! Germen art that came with my ice blue originally and the buttons are sanwa OBSC x6 30mm.


    Is that 3D art as in Lenticular? If so, I must ask where you acquired such a thing as I've been looking for someone to do a lenticular cover for me for ages :<

    As pzlate stated it is a stock art from the pc only q4raf ice blue, I also have a spare from when I ordered the six button conversin kit from canadianjoysticks.com as a bonus they were giving the ssf4 ae 3d art with the first batch of six button conversion kits, the one you see on the ice blue was underneath the minsk art guess I got lucky on this one.

    you know whats reaaaally fucking dumb

    the VSHG is perhaps the best case out there. It's debatable of course but the placement of all the elements on the top plate resembles an arcade panel very closely. Then there are people who build their own VSHG replicas because it's obviously one of the best cases ever produced.

    AND THEN THEY FUCKING MOVE THE STICK AND BUTTONS WAY UP HIGH THAT IN NO WAY RESEMBLES A JAPANESE CANDY CAB WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!

    ^ This, specially if you have big hands and having bigger hands than an average japanese isn't that hard.

    No, I don't have any VSHG-like case/stick, be it in it's original or alternative placement.

    It's all preference.

    One man's gold may be another's tin.
    As an example, in my humble opinion, the namco and agetec dreamcast cases are two of the best. The VSHG is nice, but the control panel is cluttered.

    I just said that, from a custom perspective, makes sense to relocated the whole layout if it makes more comfortable to the user. That simple.

    I'm not talking about customs. I'm talking about sticks put on the market either in small or big runs. not personalized sticks. (the funny thing is most custom stick makers who set up shop dont have an option for button placement, just config).

    im plenty relaxed though, this is just a major pet peeve. thats all.
