    Very nice... what did you finish it with?

    thanks all...
    i used Rustoleoum brand stain, Cabernet color, and glossy Poly coat. sanded the wood down to 600 grade (120, 220, 660) and did the stain for 3 days, and another 3 for the poly. One of the things i messed up with is that i had a few spots of glue residue which didn't sand down very well, so the stain didn't hold very much and have white splotches. again, part of the learning process i guess. and thanks for the tips.

    as for the cord hole, yeah, i need to get a usb/rj45 mount in there (switchcraft i hear is the ones to go for wood mounts), i just needed to install a pcb for the meantime so its usable. i'll get to that eventually when i have more budget.

    same goes for the plexi panel, there's no real way to lock it down, partly for convenience (since its not really done) and im still brainstorming on good ideas on what to use. (camlocks maybe?)

    Project boxes for different PCBs: I have a PS360+ and a TvC-PCB wired already, I have extra boxes for a ChImp (for PSN-PS2 games) and soon an XBO controller (for KI). The project boxes fit inside the casing after you rip off the top panels.
    Is there any recent information about project boxes? All the threads I find after a search on srk are a few years old

    Easiest solution that would please almost everyone -> a decent port. That is, the DC version of ST running on a PS4/XBOX.
    Difficult part -> get capcom involved. Whoever achieves that gets the golden egg and solves the problem for once and for all. Period ;)

    sweet, but if 6 button is doge, 8 is dick, does that mean 7 button is doge dick?
    The 7th button in actually a 2nd select button. Dude wanted it for plinking or option select, I forget

    Took a Tekken Hybrid stick, made it even blacker. PAS aluminum bat top, shaft cover, washer and button caps. Jinxz' feet. Art's plexi top and bottom.

    Getting the feet on with plexi bottom was tricky but adds to the mod being extremely subtle. The plungers being so black kind of gives the reverse of that dark hai look in the right light.

    Ballin. Black Plexi makes the case look hai. How do those aluminum button caps feel @cheap_scrub ? The only thing I would have done differently is making it Noir.

    Oh-hoho. That is beautiful, where'd you get the bolts for the top? Those are fucking tough looking. I was considering taking out the turbo panel, but sometimes use the home button. Silenced my buttons as well and purchased a Rollie Flash I'm considering installing.

    I was considering going noir as well, but still wanted to have the feel of the metal panel underneath and the mounting holes would have kind of got in the way to the look I think. So I may just pick up a metal SCV panel if one pops up, I've seen those floating around.

    The caps feel okay. They're similar, but a bit bigger because they're flat. So without the convex, they're about as tall, the edges of the button just take up more space. Two don't fit super snugly onto their plungers though, so it ruins the stealthiness just so slightly. I don't know if the inconsistency is with the plunger, the cap, or just a bad combination of the two. I'll figure it out later.

    Might I suggest by starting with you documenting your arcade stick collection and then having other people write up descriptions of the various sticks (parts, special features, converter compatibility, availability, etc.; some sort of template?). Same thing for converters though this section should be easy as if this site is looking at "Tech Talk" approved then the converter section would, I believe, consist of descriptions of exactly four converters (2x PS2 -> PS3 & 2x PS2 -> 360).

    Documenting my arcade stick collection will be tough. But yeah, I'm working on a general template for each stick entry and converter entry. I think I'm going to do gamepads too.

    I love how many people picked up two copies of SCV, I bet gamestop is so confused at all these namco used games being traded in.

    Also, I'M SUPER SALTY AT ALL YOU MOTHER FUCKERS WHO PICKED UP TTT2 ON PS3 IN THAT BUNDLE WHEN YOU ALREADY HAD TTT2.
    ;-; I wish I had a TT2, but I'll live, because namco 3D fighters isn't my jam anyways, you can hold that shit. 2D for life.

    Hibachi (mmmm delicious, did you know the zoo can ban you for life if they catch you cooking up penguin meat?) what number is your hybrid?

    Just be careful, MarkMan. We've seen pictures of inside your house. If we don't hear from you for a few days, we're calling 911 to your home just to make sure you didn't die in an arcade stick avalanche.

    Although I'm sure that may be one of the ways you'd be happiest going out, we're not letting you go that easily.

    i got those on ebay from some rc car parts sellers. just googled (or rather asked on here) about bolt sizes and bam. aluminum finishing washers (cast, not stamped) and titanium countersunk hex screws. they came in a pack of 10 for less than 10 bucks i think. if i can find the link i'll post later. if only they had em in black...

    Same question. That shaft seems really long. Personal preference?

    IMHO....

    The Suzo is just too beastly to be used with a balltop mounted at the standard JP height. The throw feels bigger this way, and is more optimized for fighting games. For me, this is more like the stock Suzo, but feels a little more familiar.

    Hmmm, I guess I could try it at the traditional height with a softer spring, but somehow I don't think that will feel right. Worth a shot though.

    At any rate, it doesn't feel at all strange because I've played on Happ sticks quite a bit.
    I can't believe I'm Magnetro.
