    Yeah, I noticed this too. You need those in SFIV to go through the different icons/titles. I don't know if there's any other way to scroll through them but I couldn't find one last time I tried.

    It sucks, but I gotta go with Raeli and some of the others here- 8 button layout is not how it is in the arcade, and by extension not how the games were originally designed to be played. Obsiously it's not like it doesn't work, but I just like it as true to the arcade experience as possible. Acceptable maybe if you're forced to play on pad, but on an arcade stick I think using button macros is just lame...

    Personally I much prefer the cleaner look of six buttons, but I chose to put 8 on the face of my stick because I wanted to cover all of the buttons on the sixaxis so that I'd be prepared for any game that I chose to use it with. I just ignore the extra 2 when I play sf.

    Wireless dual system stick with sixaxis PCB and common ground Xbox 360 pcb switched using a DB-25 switch mounted in back cable port for system select.

    Finally got the art switched out. I did the actual mod (adding the PCB's and switch) like 4 months ago but have been using button plugs over the outer two buttons with the original art. Eight buttons on a stick never feels right to me

    I went for a "button key" on the bottom left of the art instead of listing what button is what by each button since it always seemed to mess with the cleanness of the design. This stick is for ps3 and 360 so its good to have a quick reference of what button does what for each system. Don't think I have seen anyone do it this way. Design by me. Art cut and plexi by Arthong.

    The system select dial / switch on the left. Dual USB Ports mounted inside the TE's USB cable holder on the right side. The black port is for the Playstation 3, the Silver port is for the xbox 360 connected to the pcb via play and charge kit.

    nice stick! i'm halfway through my dual wireless mod also. got pics of the guts? quite interested in how you got it working. mines will be running on 1 usb cable for charging and ps3 sync and a sync button for xbox side w/ a switch to choose which system to run. i should be done soon i'm just slacking cause i'm focused on comestics ... lol

    I took pics while I was doing the mod but that was like 4 months ago lol. I cant find that memory card right now but I will look again.

    Essentially what I did was dremel the shit out of the case inside to fit in the db-25 switch. The ps3 pcb and axis adapter is on the bottom right under the bottom panel. The 360 pcb is on the top (main area in the stick) under and to the left of the joystick, I used 2 barrier strips... one large one and a smaller second one for the second ps3 grounds. I put the barrier strips in the same spot where the madcatz one was located. My sync button is the turbo button. The home button is also the guide.

    Six buttons just feels the right way to me. All that P+P+P and K+K+K button crap just doesn't seem right or fair. Also I have been playing with six button for so long that the extra two buttons annoy me. Im old school for sure. lol

    Look for a dual wireless mod thread here in tech talk. Gummowned did one of these mods. I think hes working on PCB to help with it.

    I was just thinking of this... I don't see why people don't put the triggers/missing 2 buttons somewhere else on the stick, say on one of the sides or the back with the start/select/home buttons. I might make a stick showing that just as a concept.

    I personally really like the original artwork on the SE stick, but wanted my stick to look a bit more unique, so I gave it a paintjob:

    The way I did my dual wireless is completely different than Fallback's method. I did a common ground mod on the sixaxis controller where as Fallback used a DB-25 switch to switch between all of the button signals and common gnd/lines of the two controllers. Pretty clever.

    lol, obviously YOU care since you respoded to the same comment twice, and left another useless "dbbl post" comment... get it all out yet?

    SFIV console menu uses 8 buttons I guess... but no, actual game play doesn't use 8 buttons, hence the 6 buttons on the arcade cabinet. The console version just allows you to use 8 buttons, in case you have a pad or you can't figure out how to hit 3 buttons at once like everyone who plays it in the arcade is able to do...

    P.S.- you only need to quote and reply to this once. :shake:

    Now that is something you don't see. I know that poplar can have some figure in it but not a tiger stripe like that piece. Nice find and well done case.

    the max I'd probably pay is roughly

    150: good quality mass produced domestically
    250: top quality mass produced if it had to be imported
    300+: something custom and unique depending on build/part quality

    I think it is very reasonable once you start talking about exotic woods, leds, dual system mods, imp boards, etc to pass the $300 - $350 mark, not only for parts but the giant amount of time that goes into something that custom.

    Before I clicked that link I knew exactly which one you were talking about. I'm not a fan of that style (the panel hanging over the near side of the base like that), but that thing was kick ass.

    My friend gave me an SE case cause it went to shit and the PCB was fubar.

    After a couple weeks, some bad vinyl sticker from .99c Store, bad color matching, a PS1 DS pcb that refuses to work properly on a Pelican converter, but works fine on a Mayflash converter, I have finally finished it.

    Sanwa JLF with shaft cover.
    2x Seimitsu (hardcore switch version) buttons.
    6x Sanwa OBSN-30s

    If I can somehow fit in a little box for the cords, I plan on dual modding it (maybe). Also planning on changing the panel and coloring those blue buttons yellow. :D

    Another couple of lovely sticks, Steve. The dovetail joints really add to them. I don't know my arse from my elbow when it comes to woodworking, though, so making anything like that is way above me.
    Did you make that chamfered cube in the background too?

    Yeah,that was my original plan,but every time I make a stick it never makes it that far lol,seems like I have them finished for a few hours before someone buys it.

    But thanks for the advice,I'll most likely be taking it soon :)

    guess i'll make a contribution here while i'm at it, i finally finished my first stick over the weekend. i really like how it came out, but i'll probably be recycling the parts to make something better somewhere along the line. sorry, but it's just a backgammon case mod and the picture is off of a camera phone:

    i reinforced the top and bottom with panels of poplar, and it all came out to be pretty sturdy, no complaints so far. a few imperfections, the layout got really screwed up - HK & MK are practically touching each other - but it's nothing that's hindered my playing so far. practice still makes perfect, right? the short USB cable poking out of a notch is coming from a Cthulhu to connect a 15' USB extension cable that i have (currently packed inside of the case).

    JLF, OBSN-24 and 30, PS3 Cthulhu, yadda yadda. thinking about rubber feet but can't tell if it's really necessary.
