Good morning everyone! Wanted to throw launch the shop into the Tech Talk Community because why not... every other vendor has. I'll migrate over my SALES threads to here and ask the mods to close them out once I get everything moved over.

** About me and the Shop **

Some of you may know me, some of you may not... I am Jasen and I am a DIY-Aholic. I build Fight Sticks, SuperGuns, Print and Cut Custom Graphics, and Sell buttons, sticks, and tech to fuel my addiction. What started out as a minor hobby as a kid (pulling things apart to see how they worked and getting rocked at Street Fighter II and Samurai Showdown) turned into an obsession. Many things I make such as the Panzer Fight Sticks, SuperGun Cases, and graphics started out as something I needed for a project I was working on. Over the past two years it evolved into a "business", a term I use loosely because I'm not trying to make money... just trying to save it for my random projects and passing it along the best I can to the community. By night I may be an arcade/gaming enthusiast but by day I am a LCDR in the US Navy and drive Submarines for a living. Because of my day job I have been able to learn a lot of crazy stuff that has influenced my designs and projects. Thanks Navy for training me and testing me as a Nuclear Engineer!

I run this by myself so I know the quality of parts, prints, and builds... in my house. America was built from the home, I'm going to try and keep it that way. Plus it saves me money :-D

** Announcement Section / New Projects **

Panzer 2.0 Pre Orders are open again. All white options are available during this time!

Working on the HRAP 4 EZ MOD and the TE2 EZ MOD. I think the HRAP4 variant will be very pricey retail and based on the cost of the stick might not be worth doing. Open to thoughts!

    I was wondering why you didn't have a thread here.

    I thought Tech Talk was for that... Tech Talk, not selling stuff... that's why I kept it in the Market Place. It's ok though, we all learn :-D

    I have some really neat custom projects coming out soon. I'm cutting some SuperGun cords to make some folks really want one of their own not to mention changing a few cords too. Let's just say that the MK30 MOD 1 and MK30 MOD 2 are going to be some amazing cases ready for some killer tech!

    I actually agree with this though. I would keep this thread for tech discussion of products you sell and tech support for customers who need it. I would keep the other thread for sales info and issues related to that.

    It's good to have a thread for your custom stuff, that way you can talk about the tech aspects of it, such as the gauge of the metal used in Panzer sticks, mounting options, and so on.

    It's a format I think everyone should move to.

    Well I'll bite. One of your past superguns had an enclosure similar to panzer fight stick. Able to fit in a power supply and all that inside it. I've been meaning to redo my supergun and an enclosure like that would be perfect. However its not on your site, do you know where I may order one?
  • Jasen HicksJasen Hicks JasensCustoms.com Joined: Posts: 2,293
    @ShinjiGohan - I think you were referring to the Fight Stick with the Intel NUC inside. That was a custom case I did for a customer in Singapore. I could definitely do another one if you were interested. As for a complete SuperGun inside a stick, I have drawings for one that I did a while ago but never put it into production because of what I thought was limited appeal. It was 2P and had everything setup for a SuperGun to be built inside.

    Not taking Pre-Orders on the PFS:KE. They will be available in July. They will all be made with Black GamerFingers so they are ready off of the shelf. Standardization makes it easier and less costly for the end user. There will be 10 of these for sale, hence the limited edition, and there will be battops and balltops available.

    that looks smaller than the original ones, is it smaller?

    im still considering a smaller panzer stick, but i gotta get my money priorities straight, after modding my TE, i have barely used it lol
  • Jasen HicksJasen Hicks JasensCustoms.com Joined: Posts: 2,293
    The Korean stick is just a bit taller and only slightly narrower (width wise). Still made from 14 gage steel though so its a tough beast.

    PS: The Link is on clearance at the site, only $19.95 plus shipping. Good for now until they sell out!

    I'm just curious, any reason why you are going to only make 10 of the korean sticks? If you run out of the sticks would it still be possible to order a panzer fight stick that is capable of mount a fanta stick ?

    The only thing I would've done differently on the 탱크 would be to make Crown button holes (28mm).

    But YES, another REAL Korean option is AWESOME! (Being able to mount the Japanese style Korean stick doesn't count, I much prefer the collar)

    I hope this doesn't stay limited and you see batch production happen for them.

    Thanks for the comments. I used the Crowin (Crown) buttons in Korea and wasn't that impressed with them. They have these weird pin connections that don't fit normal QCDs and didn't meet the intent of the stick... to use the best/impressive. That's the rationale behind using the GamerFingers in the final builds. Because they are impressive and very nice. Why make a high end stick without all high end parts?

    I chose to make these limited edition because of the cost with the digital printing on the case. Depending on how well these sell and how much interest there is in a case only option I may do a pre-order setup for cases only without the digital printing. The digital printing process is actually a bit pricey.

    One more update to the Stick: Looking to upgrade the Micros to D2RVs with the actuating levers during the build. This will allow for the normal Fanta feel with the sound of silence!

    Uroboros - Coming Soon.

    Yes, I am working on a new project for the community. It's going to be pretty slick if I do say so myself. Details will be released slowly as my partner and I get things moving forward. Alpha testing is underway, Beta Testing will start soon. Needless to say, its something completely new for JasensCustoms.com and I hope everyone likes it!

    Thanks! It seems people like it and want to build a stick around it, probably why so many people take existing sticks and replace the panels to get the layout. I haven't sold too many with that layout but enough that I keep it available. Its interesting... I bought an actual HITBOX from them to add to my collection and never really got used to it, but that's the great thing about the community... everyone has their tastes and likes.

    One day the person who asked for a WASD layout will finally place his custom case order... then we will see some craziness and have some very interesting discussions on alt layouts.

    I must admit Jasen, I learned of your site last (after Paradise/Focus/heck even overseas sites) but what I saw was impressive. I think your the only vender who sells the bottom control boards from the Xbone controllers. Thats impressive stuff.

    Keep up the good work, I know I'll be ordering from you at some point. (Im Canadian I kind of have to pick and choose)

    Thanks Sith... You don't have to be first to the party to make an impact :-D I'll keep doing what I do and hopefully, people will see the quality and want to join the Jasen's Customs Family.

    I'd like to agree that I am the only vendor with bare XBONE pads but my buddies over at www.paradisearcadeshop.com have them as well.

    These are beautiful, and the commercial operations could learn a thing or two from your slick "jet black" powder coating. The graphics on most sticks look cartoony and childish.

    Seems you have a pretty flexible operation w/r/t to customization, so here's a question: What is the possibility of including a cable storage compartment with a little hinged door like the plastic commercial sticks? Is that even feasible engineering- and price-wise?

    Thanks for the kind words! The Jet Black is a nice and smooth powder coat and is is very nice. I haven't held an Omni stick, but knowing what Laugh puts out, I'm sure its quality. The Hitbox finish is nice as well, just a sandtex feel. (I think Omni is the same).

    I try to keep the stick simple. Having the compartment with a hinged door is doable, but it would cost so much money to implement the costs don't out weigh the benefits. I have stuck to the removable cord setup because its much cheaper and easier to disconnect and store in your Fight Stick bag than implementing a costly mod to the stick making it unaffordable.

    Thanks for the comments. Having a Hitbox in hand to compare to the Panzer, the finishes are nearly the same. The Panzer's Sandtex finish (in white, graphite, black, carmine red, or gentian blue) is about the same feel as the Hitbox to my gruffed up hands.

    It's a pretty standard finish, but we get our cases from guys who make cabinets for slot machines and stuff. Good heavy duty built to last Vegas metal. Only difference is our metal isn't designed to steal your money.

    The guy that asked for that layout emailed me and said I could make the 4 button version available to folks as a standard layout. He paid the additional shop setup fees associated with making it and was happy to do it so the community could have it available if they needed it. I thought it was mighty fine of him!

    I think he's making a comment about Vegas. The Geo stick is definitely drool worthy. With all I'm spending lately, it'll have to wait, but I will revisit that layout at a later date.

    Ha! Totally right... clearly, I get dumb at night. I need to quit working much earlier! It makes so much more sense now :-P

    Thanks for the comments on the NG stick. As I mentioned before I'm not an artist... just an engineer that can make things work. When a PFS comes out as nice as this the customer gets all of the credit for provding the art!

    PS. Are you coming over tomorrow night still? I should be home after 5 for sure. I get to pick up my laptop from the Apple Store at 4PM so its a forcing function to leave the Pentagon early :-D

    I figured if anyone wants to do the panzer stick but not utilize the ("neutrik") EH Panel Mount.

    http://www.amazon.com/Switchcraft-Blank-Cover-Panel-Screws/dp/B00BYE2O0K

    Its the Switchcraft ECP Blank Cover for EH Panel Mount with 4-40 Screws

    There also this for those who want to mount a DPDT switch in the EH Panel Mount.

    Just finished this bad boy up tonight. The MK30 is a great case/starting point for your SuperGun project. While it looks complicated, building these is like using electrical legos :-D

    Jason, agree to disagree on the crown buttons, I've been a fan for a while, but they're not for everybody.

    I tried Laugh's personal Omni at EVO last year. It was a Fanta with Crown buttons. The buttons actually felt nice and unique, kind of clicky. I would definitely give them a try if I wasn't already invested in other buttons.

    Does anyone have one of the Panzers who can testify to how it plays? Thanks!

    Just put an order in for one (ok, well my gf did for my birthday) this weekend. Once, I get it and put all the pieces together (so basically, 30 minutes after I get it) I can let you know.

    ..but....what do you mean by how it plays? It's an arcade stick, it will play like an....arcade stick. The main draw for me was the fact this is a metal design that is powder coated. So it will be tough, heavy and have a durable finish to it. If you look at the design, all pieces should fit together well and it should be quite sturdy.

    I picked up a wide body last week. It solid, heavy, a real piece of equipment, unlike the madcatz TE2, which feels light and brittle and toy-like in comparison. In terms of how it plays...that's dependent on the parts you put inside.

    Opinions:

    -They look and feel nice even without artwork.

    -I'm sure it varies from person to person, but I like the weight on my lap. It's heavy enough to stay put even if you're a violent player, but not so heavy as to bother you...unless you have like..pudding legs or something? However, you will get tired carrying it up a mountain(Puerto Rico) or long stairs if you're in as bad a shape as I am.

    -A little noisy as you tap the buttons because metal but people have posted solutions here in the SRK. Though I don't mind the noise and haven't gotten any complaints.

    -They are tough. It would probably put someone in a coma if you hit them with a Panzer, so please manage your salt responsibly.

    Bad phone camera, so I won't be including any photos. To conclude, I love my panzer and I hope it works out for you future owners too.

    Thanks for all of the positive comments and insights everyone! Its humbling to hear great comments like those above.

    Please don't hit your friends with your Panzer. I'm quite sure that getting hit with one in a fit of rage will do more harm that concussion from an old NFL injury!

    I'm slowly working on a silencing kit for the case. I have it in my mind on how to do it... just need to actually implement.

    I used some 1/2 in acoustic foam around the edges of the top panel and it turned "dong dong" into a solid "thump thump". It took surprisingly little of the foam to almost completely take the ring out.

    Brothers in Arms. These fraternal twin Panzer Fight Sticks are headed out west to live with their MK48 cousin. The White/Red Stick has a custom etched aluminum dust washer courtesy of www.paradisearcadeshop.com.

    Both of these sticks are wired up so they may be used on a NEO-GEO, SuperGun, and modern consoles courtesy of the DB-15 and USB Jack (via PS360+).

    I will follow this ^

    Big potential for some of my personal projects.

    Congrats for the development Jasen!

    Thanks! The mass compatibility and the flexibility is huge with these boards. Just the fact the RX board can be turned into a PS3 wired solution is a huge plus!

    I have to thank the community and those who support JasensCustoms.com with purchases and sharing of my products etc. The word of mount advertising and sales of Panzer Fight Sticks, Control Panels, Graphics, and now Buttons, Joysticks, and such all play a huge roll in developing and investing back in the community. As I have mentioned in the past, every penny is reinvested in new things for the shop, basically the more stuff that gets sold the more cool things I can invest in, help develop and bring to market. Sometimes these are simple additions like off-the shelf items such as GamerFinger buttons, but more often than not they are new Control Panels, Additional Fight Sticks, and new PCBs.

    Thanks Pres!

    All,

    Here is the Wireless Stress Test I did using the Morpheus setup and some beta firmware that supports PS3. The results are pretty nice! Please note that as I clacked away at buttons RYU starts doing some moves so the button inputs were meaningless since he was in the middle of a grab or something. Watch the left part of the screen and you will see that inputs are still incoming :-D

    That's really cool. Would this be able to be used in a tournament? Does it pair and stay paired?

    What technology is it using, IR, Bluetooth, something else?
