    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.

    Nice, like the button key idea too.
    Agree with the six button layout...fighters aren't meant to be played seriously with macros...
    especially at a competitive level...theres a reason it takes 3 buttons to do an ultra...theres
    a reason why some moves are more difficult to pull off than others...

    I like 8 button layouts because they give me flexability. I play street fighter and most 6 button games with a typical 6 button layout. but I like using just the top or bottom row for Blaz Blue or an old SNK fighter. I don't want to comment further because it's off topic. and that two player layout up there is awesome and original.... Way to rebel against a streaight arcade copy layout, while still giving the feel of one.

    Only.. that's not how the layout is in any arcade game, it's never been 4 straight.

    You're just mashing 3p/3k, don't lie.

    The seventh and eight buttons are at times needed for the console ports, though. I know in BlazBlue, if you want to look beyond the first pages of results for a Quick Match online, you have to use LT and RT (which aren't on my stick). And anybody who didn't wire the bumpers in a 360 stick is boned trying to navigate KOFXII's menus.

    I really like how the VSHG did it - six main buttons, and the remaining buttons as small and out-of-the-way yet still accessible.

    Are those parts vacuformed?

    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.

    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 Fallback, We gotta talk sticks. :D

    Raeli's right. Try going to a real sfiv arcade and see if they have the 3p and 3k buttons and use those.. :lame:

    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...
  • networkingyuppynetworkingyuppy RandoMadness. Joined: Posts: 2,322 mod
    Yes. 8 buttons is definitely acceptable on a Sixaxis Controller or 360 Controller. It's extremely difficult getting the timing right on an ultra when the buttons are positioned in different areas within the controller.

    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.

    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.

    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.
