Update Here's the link to my new trading post VOLTECH Arcade Sticks

Good work guys :D

Hello SRK please take a minute to read through my post. My name's VOLTECH,
I've been lurking and eventually posting here for some time now and I have to say I love this community :lovin: especially the Tech Talk and Good Games threads!

Anyway I'm building myself and a couple of friends a new custom fight stick. While I've built a few custom sticks before (see pics below*) this time around I'd like to document my progress and get some helpful input and advice from the SRK community before I begin.

My Goal is to make a hybrid stick that can mount both American and Japanese (Happ, sanwa\seimitsu and Fanta) layouts. I?m going for the best of both worlds in a standardized box with a clean and low profile design. (Low as possible Happ willing)

I've been doing my homework on this project so I have a pretty good idea of what I want and how I'll go about doing it but there are a few areas that still allude me. I'll be keeping a build log here to document my work and progress so feel free to follow along and leave comments. I'm open to constructive criticism and advice, that's kind of the point of me making this public.

Bill of materials (BOM) for my prototype

1. Frame: 1"x3" 4? Poplar (basically 1 foot board per box ) - because it's the cheapest of the hardwoods and can be stained or painted easily (I plan to user other hardwoods later for the final build)

2. Panel mount: 3/4" MDF - Seems to be the standard and is easy to work and shape.

3. Joystick Mounting Plate: 4"x4" .080 2024 Aluminum plate ? I?m working on a universal mounting plate that will fit both Happ, sanwa\seimitsu and Fanta* sticks.
Shown here with the Sanwa stick mounted
3399535482_e467a01972_m.jpg


4. Top Sheet: .1/8" Plexiglass - For it resistance to scratches and it?s fairly inexpensive and easy to work with.

5. Artwork: 12?x8? photo paper - I?d like to put together a template so art can easily and quickly be made using photoshop. (I could use some help putting this together and could provide all the measurements including hole placement)

6.Button Hole patterns: 8 buttons Japanese\American Hybrid - I want to use one pattern to please them all so I?m thinking of doing something like this

Full size pic found here
Universal

*Vewlix

*Blast City

7. Base material: (?) Here is one of my dilemmas. I could just use another piece of Plexiglass with 4 rubber screw down feet just like everyone else. (This seems to be the standard but is a little expensive) Or I could use a piece of hard board with a piece of closed cell rubber glued to it for a super comfy and sticky grip for lap and tabletop play. (This option is a little cheaper and feels nice when playing on your lap) the down side is that you don?t get to see the inside of the box and all its glorious wiring.

8. Feet: (?) Either 4 rubber feet or a closed cell rubber covering the entire bottom???

9. Glue: Titebond - This stuff is awesome!

10. Dowels: Fluted Dowel Pins - these little guys will do the job

11. Hardware: screws nuts and bolts - I haven't worked out the sizes just yet

did I miss anything?

Q&A

Q. - Where are you from?
A. - I live in Huntington Beach CA

Q - Will you be selling these sticks?
A - No I hadn't planned to but If I get enough interest and the demand is high...yes!!!

Q. - Can you make me a custom stick?
A. - Maybe down the road, for now I want to work on getting a solid box design then I'll take it from there. So keep an eye on this thread ;)

Q. - Hey I make sticks too ie pad hacks and wiring and or custom art, wanna work together?
A. - Maybe PM me lets talk

Q. - Will you make turn key sticks or just the bare bones kits?
A. - If the demand is there I'll do it ;) But in the beginning I want to focus on just getting a good box out there and then build on that.

Q - Where do you plan to build these sticks?
A - My dad has a wood shop at his house and I have access to it ;)

Q. - Got any pics of your progress so far?
A. - Just a few models so far (see below) let me know what you think.

Q - What program are you using to make your models?
A - Google sketchup download it here http://sketchup.google.com/ it's free!

Q - Can I see the other sticks you've built?
A - Sure see below* :D

VOLTECH type 1 frame - My friends suggested I make one like this for them I changed up some of the angles and so far it's the most popular. What do you guys think?
3416356837_14c8c1d60a_o.png


So here's what I may go with since it's the most versatile. Extra button can be used as a Sync button or a dedicated Dual switch mode button ie Toodles new Imp or just as a hole to mount what ever you want even a headphone jack or just a button plug ;).
3448068076_d40214d556.jpg3448068966_1df386c6a0.jpg
I'll save the headphone jack mod for the pros and since I use wireless I didn't think about it sorry maybe next time.

Jack not included just the hole ;)

Here's a sneak peek of the slim 2" and mid 2 1/2" models I'm working on. Both are just concept at this point and would be made of High end Hardwoods or Lacquered with piano black, white or died\stained finishes.
3549557865_397e6a8f80_b.jpg
The mid size is in a new shape I can do in any size and may vary with a rounded edge as well.
I do not plan to take orders for these but I'll just make a few of each and who ever wants it can buy it. I will be making some price adjustments once my list of the original 20 is complete.

    Excellent prelim info. Looks like you are getting closer in building the ultimate Jap/American Hybrid Case. Congrats on your progress. I am sure many of us will be looking forward for the final product.

    Yet another SRK innovation coming soon. I love this community for all its technical know how and helpfulness to others.

    Go for it!!! Definitely looking good; hopefully you make a few with the original Vewlix measurements, since it sort of is a Japanese/American hybrid layout.

    Wow, thankfully those MadCatz patents are pending because that shit is TIGHT.

    Excellent work, my friend. Can't wait to see what other corporate designs you improve on!

    Just so there's no confusion I made the Vewlix tribute model for a friend. I have no plans to try and take Vewlix or Madcatz designs and make them my own.

    I may go forward with this build since it would be a fun project plus my buddies already fallen in love with the shape. To be honest I was afraid that I would get my self in trouble trying to make Vewlix knock offs and as a designer I would like to think I could come up with something original. So I changed up the cuts, shape and dimensions so it wouldn't be an exact copy . What are your thoughts on this?

    P.S. I will put up some of the other styles I've been tossing around and maybe do a vote for the most popular. With the materials I have I can probably make about 3 or 4 sticks so I'll try and make them all different but with the same basic dimensions just to keep things simple for now.

    I'm really hoping to make this a community effort so please let me know how you feel about this good or bad I wanna hear it. - Voltech

    I've always wondered how you wire up the actual stick after you built the nice case and inserted the pretty seethrough buttons and sanwa joystick..

    Do you just open a 360/PS3 joypad, take out the main PCB and solder directly on the points for the buttons and d-pad? Where do you get the schematics for the PCB so you know where to solder?

    And how do you make it work for several consoles? Put the different joypad boards inside the stick? How does it know which system you're currently playing on? Lotsa questions, but arcade sticks is such a rare thing to see in northern europe you have to build them yourself (or order from overpriced online stores). And these days, all the hori and madcatz sticks are sold out from all providers due to release of SF4.

    I would not worry about it. If you are only making a few of them, there should not be a problem. I think Madcatz, who's made a few thousand and counting, should maybe be worrying if they never consulted with Taito though.

    Taito and Capcom are pretty much a unit now. I am pretty sure that Capcom's licensing of the product is a good sign that proper measures were taken :tup:.

    Wow thanks for the support and a very special thanks for your site, it's been a huge help to me and I'm sure many other people!
    I can only hope this project can help a fraction of the people you have with the stick building process. Any input you have would be greatly appreciated your help and advice means a lot to me. :pray:

    Thanks I really appreciate your intrest !

    For the most part this is true (though SF4 uses all 8 ie change the face in the match screen or map all 3 buttons to one for easy ultras or easy throws) I'm trying to cater to both styles of play and use 1 universal design also as an added benefit even the NeoGeo guys get their 4 button layout! Lets say I have a friend that only wants 6 buttons I can always put button plugs in the empty holes or just not cut the holes in the plexi and problem solved. The hole pattern will still be in the main frame so down the road if he changes his mind it's an easy upgrade.

    Westminster that's right around the corner from me :D
    wow this the shit man!

    btw: you main chun on sf4? i have yet to see a chun

    Thanks!

    Yes I do although she plays completely different than I'm used to, I'm gonna stick it out cause I can that see she still has potential.
    would be very interested to see how yours turn out. make a sample and if everyone likes what the see.. u might just HAVE to start selling these! lol

    Yes me too lol
    Well if things work out and I do decide to sell these sticks I'll be sure to make a post in the correct thread found here http://forums.shoryuken.com/forumdisplay.php?f=224

    Hey VOLTECH, since it looks like you're using my LS-32 model, if you break the group you should be able to remove the S-shaped mounting plate (looks like it's still on there). I'll add a copy of the model without it when I get a chance.

    Yeah I was playing around with that a little but didn't want to break your model. Either way the holes match up and that's what I was hoping for since I'm making it universal. I may include a couple of wooden blocks for mounting to an s shaped mounting plate. But that would be cool to have a blank one that I can switch out parts on so thanks.

    looks awesome especially with the hybrid capability. i'm not sure if this was mentioned already, but what pcb are u gonna use? good stuff.

    This project is all about the box design but for me personally I'll be using a a dual system setup. 1 Gamestop Madcatz wired 360 PCB combined with 1 Toodles Cthulhu PC/PS3 PCB. I used this diagram as my guide http://forums.shoryuken.com/showpost.php?p=6258153&postcount=448 I have this setup currently in my Chun Stick. The one difference I may add is a slider switch mounted to the top sheet for easy access. I'm currently using a toggle switch mounted to the side of the project box inside my case.

    BTW I've taken into accounted the size of the project box I used and will add it to the model to show how it fits

    Since I'm going for a universal hybrid I want to try and include the Koren sticks too.
    I've never tried a Korean made stick (although I've heard good things)
    Can anyone let me know what the best or most popular brand is and I'll see if I can make it fit.

    Can you identify this stick?

    I found this pic and I liked it better than some of the others I've seen cause it reminds me of the Happ IL sticks. (I'm not a big fan of the lever switches)

    Isn't the vewlix button layout a bit slanted? You have the button columns lined up vertically, while that isn't the case for vewlix.

    WOW!!

    I never knew you were this talented!!:pray:

    I really like the viewlix style stick.:tup::tup:

    If youre afraid that you'll get in trouble replicating the viewlix style, how about design one that replicate older candy cabs like the astro city or a capcom impress.

    How heavy would the stick be?

    Isn't the vewlix button layout a bit slanted? You have the button columns lined up vertically, while that isn't the case for vewlix.

    I think that is the American part of the Hybrid?
    American Layout is lined up right?

    Japanese part would be the two Offset Buttons.


    shinshoryuken, I see the Spoon Crane as your Avatar. :tup:
    Do you have a Type R too?
    Maybe even an NSX-R?

    This is not supposed to be an exact copy of a vewlix cab (although I could make an exact replica) the dressing in the first couple of models I made just happens to be similar but that can change at any time. I'm currently playing with some new shapes and I'll post them soon.

    Ok I'm off to do a little shopping at a few of the usual places ie Lows, Home Depot and a local hardwood shop. I'll try and take pics and get pricing for the materials I plan to use.

    I'm definitely interested in one of these.

    long as it's priced within reason, and quality is high, you have one sold for sure.

    let me know!

    Wow nice! I'm definitely interested and loving the hybrid! I remember seeing the customized chun stick at vid 94 and it was really cool. Great Work, keep it up!


    I definitely want to see more Chun. I rarely get to play against her xd.

    Since I'm going for a universal hybrid I want to try and include the Koren sticks too.
    I've never tried a Korean made stick (although I've heard good things)
    Can anyone let me know what the best or most popular brand is and I'll see if I can make it fit.


    I found this pic and I liked it better than some of the others I've seen cause it reminds me of the Happ IL sticks. (I'm not a big fan of the lever switches)

    I just got some Fanta's in the mail.

    Despite what I thought I read about Happ and Korean joysticks being interchangeable, it doesn't seem that way. The Fanta joysticks I got (Myoungshin) all have holes that are in a square of dimension 5cm x7.25cm. The Happ P360 I'm looking at has a dimension of 6.5 by 7.5.

    If you know a way to get these 2 designs + the JLF-P1 (used for Sanwa sticks) and the Seimitsu SS plate (used for the Seimitsu sticks, fitting close to the Sanwa), I'd be very interested to see the hole/mounting design.

    I've posted in other threads asking for mounting area dimensions (holes and depth for mounting plate, also depth for the stick from the top plate), but there aren't any replies.

    I've used fanta at my local arcade and they are pretty solid. Circle gate and bat top but not stiff at all.
