    Hey guys, it's been a long time since I've checked in. Everyone's sticks look great, and I can see that b15 is still breaking boundaries and changing the game haha.
    I finally finished my first build since last year, my third ever custom stick. This was the first time making the top panel myself (as opposed to using the steel panel from an old TE), and my first actual paint job. I'm still learning from all the mistakes I make haha.
    This one is X-23 themed for a friend. Poplar case, MDF and lexan top/bottom panels, Sanwa JLF, Rollie buttons, Paewang PCB.

    Yay for bad lighting! Here's the back.

    Here's the front in some better lighting

    Sloppy sloppy wiring. I really need to learn how to clean up my wires.

    And another custom painted balltop.

    Bkfst, that's a revision 3 but that one has a custom plexi and it threw off the mounting height. But yeah that's the nior layout. Which is how all tekken machines come now.

    You really should, at the very least, shorten the wire between the PCB and the Neutrik.
    1) USB is rated to function correctly only up until 15-16 feet, if I'm not mistaken; having that much from the Paewang (about 7-8 feet, I think?) coiled up inside is going to restrict your cable length outside the casing
    2) In my experience with the half-dozen Paewang boards that I've used, I found the stock USB plug made pretty poor internal connectors to a Neutrik: they were loose all the time and didn't keep connection well. But I guess your mileage may vary on it.

    Very nice job otherwise. The paintjob is very nice, both on the balltop and the casing itself.

    Um, what?

    He's saying his looks like the second picture, which is a Vewlix layout.

    I'd probably get kicked in the teeth for saying I prefer the Saulabi layout.

    That's a revision 3. It's got a nior layout. Not a vewlix.

    I know that. But the picture he posted looks like Vewlix to me.

    I may just be misunderstanding the posts, I don't know. But that picture definitely doesn't look like a Noir layout.

    Noir and Vewlix look alike, but Vewlix has the buttons closer to the lever

    Hah. Actually it kinda looks like a mixture between Astro City and Vewlix. 1p/1k are very close to vertical like in the Vewlix but 3p/3k are curved down from 2p/2k. UGH! SO MANY FREAKIN LAYOUTS!

    I have had quite a few enquiries about building something similar to RT's franken pads. So I came up with this as a prototype to see how feasible it would be.
    If theres enough interest I can make a load of blank cases so you can throw your own parts in. I am in the process of designing a D-pad which uses micro switches of some sort. This particular prototype uses a PS2 d-pad along with its hacked pcb (direction side only).

    This is a vewlix 8 button layout. I know its dick but I think for a pad player it would probably be useful to have those shortcuts. All buttons are 24mm except the 20mm (black/blue buttons). The 24mm button between these buttons is the back button. Top is start and bottom is guide.

    I cut down a datel/paewang pcb to fit. wiring could have been cleaner but I didnt have thinner wire.

    Bare in mind I have huge hands so it would be extremely comfortable for regular sized hands. It is designed to be played with the button are ontop of your right thigh so its secure and the left hand to secure the d-pad side. I was playing round with it earlier and it felt great.

    Sorry for the random coloured buttons, its all I had at hand.

    I support this! (emotionally, not financially.). Hope that you keep at it. I've taken this idea as far as I can go, Hope you can improve upon it.

    It may very well be the angle at which the picture was taken that threw me off.

    It had the VLX layout or something similar. I hate curved layouts as a staff, record label, and as a motherfucking crew.

    Just thought I would post this before the world ends tomorrow.

    Custom stick built based on the pulse rifle from the Aliens series (greatest sci-fi movie I might add).

    - Solid hardwood case with solid acrylic detailing + metal panel & plexi for top
    - Layered stainless steel panel with a melted look to expose the inside
    - Aluminium handle
    - Ammo counter which reacts to the number of buttons pressed on the main panel. Start button resets it back to zero. This custom pcb was built by Giorgos of www.pcbheaven .
    - Sanwa JLF stick and Seimitsu PS-14-KN all round
    - Start, select and home to look like the pusle rifle grenade
    - The inside has a false layer which can be lifted out to gain access to the wiring
    - PS360+ board with Toodles led controller
    - Neutrik CAT 6 set-up
    - Switch for LED discreetly located in the barrel of the gun.

    dang b15, you should have said that the Aliens stick would be the CAUSE of the end of the world.....looking at the ammo counter though, seems to only be double digits? if i had one of those on any of my sticks, it would have to register at least in the hundreds (if not thousands, lol). very nice work as usual

    Damn that is a Sexy stick. a Weyland Yutani logo, a ammo counter and a design I do not think I can get pass TSA, Awesome.

    Just FYI to all other SRK folk out there, the Weyland Yutani company also appeared in Firefly, Star Trek NTG, Red Dwarf, Dr Who and Torch wood and Angle the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Spin off. As if you go by the Tommy Westphall theory they are all part of the same Multiverse.

    New Topic, I just showing off the wiring here as the rest of the stick is stock.
    Here is some wring I did for a client and fellow SRK member

    Before you ask, the SNES pad was purchase as broken/ for-parts on eBay so I didn't gutted a SNES pad for nothing.
