does anyone know if the interior of the Umvc3 stick is like the v3 and vx sa? pcb not soldered on to the buttons like other licensed sticks?

Is there anyway to remove the artwork without destroying it?

Finally finished modifying my V3 SA to a stickless the other weekend but haven't had a chance to post pics unitl now. I decided to leave the stainless steel top panel showing.
Kept it simple with a couple of stickers and artwork only in the buttons.
Music theme, all stickers and artwork is either Record label logos or artist logos and probably says a lot about my musical taste.
Direction buttons are all variations of the Modeselektor Monkey Logo.
P1 = Aphex Twin
P2 = Sqaurepusher
P3 = Autechre
P4 = Plaid
K1 = Ramp Recordings
K2 = Planet Mu Records
K3 = Brainfeeder Records
K4 = Hyperdub Records
Start = Warp Records
Stickers = Made to Play and Surrender Sounds
Sanwa Attack buttons, Sanwa start button, Smitsu direction buttons with the 24mm Buttons having the semitsu microswitches swapped out for Sanwa's. Internals are all stock with modification to wiring loom that served the stick to work with QD's for the direction buttons. At some point I'll wire parallel connections to a Dsub hidden in the cable compartment to use with project boxes for other console's. But that'll be a while off yet

That's a P2 Astro right? Where'd you get that from?

I've recently bought this stick and it doesn't seem to sync to my xbox 360 AT ALL.
It works fine if I plug it into my PC, all buttons, directions, etc work right away, but if I connect it to my xbox 360 the green lights will just keep flashing/rotating.
Am I missing something about all this or what?
The stick is new.

can this fit on a madcatz TE bag? someone's selling one to me and if it'll fit i'll go ahead and buy it

Is it possible to rearrange the buttons to look more like the TE layout? Does the wire length come into play here?

I'm thinking about dropping a ls 40 or ls 56 into my v3. Do I need to buy anything besides the stick to install it?

can anyone tell me if the button layout on the v3 sa is exactly the same as the vlx? i need a cheaper smaller backup stick.

Yes, You'll need the flat mounting plate. Its been years since i installed my LS-56 but if i remember correctly it comes with a small square plate. You'll need the more rectangular one.
LS-56 should come with the "VF' plate, youll want the 'MS' variety.
(Off note, the LS-58 offered @ focus attack would fit nicely without needing a different plate. Supposedly based off the ls-56 but softer spring. Havent tried it myself but i love the ls-56.)

Yea I can't even find anywhere online that is actually selling LS 40 01. I did see the LS 58 though. My whole thing is I'm looking for a stick with a tighter/smaller engage than the JLF (less movement of the stick until it engages). Is the LS 58 a short engage?
EDIT: Yes LS 58 is short engage like LS 56

I wonder if anyone else thought of making the Vewlix sides(wings as some people call it) for the V3 SA? I currently contacting b15sdmdesigns to make one for me.

I'm probably going to be picking this up soon. It's only $125 on Amazon with free shipping.
How easy is it to switch out the buttons?

Awesome! I was reading the earlier posts and seems like replacing the stick with a seimitsu isn't as easy... I guess I'll just stick with Sanwa for now.
hibachifinal, post: 7273964, member: 69842 wrote:
nope, it's fairly easy to get seimitsu's in. just get the right mounting plate.

Nice, thanks for the heads up. I'll probably rock it normally then slowly switch out parts.

HRAP V3 SA Kai does not toggle Select and Start on and off.
The Select/Start Configuration Switch swaps Select and Start.
Yes, you can mod your HRAP V3 SA to have Select and Start switch.
You will have to cut Traces or if you want, wires, then reroute.
Or just install your own Tournament Mode Switch for Start.
Easier to do, if you do not mind cutting into the Case.

Thanks so much for the prompt response! Is there a tutorial available for either of these? I'd rather not cut into the case unless I'm 100% certain of what I'm doing. Also, I'm not familiar with "cutting Traces." What is that, exactly? Is any soldering required for swapping the two buttons or any other supplies/materials I would need to have on-hand? Just trying to get an idea of what a project like this is going to require (I'm a first-timer as far as DIY modifications go).

If you don't want to add a "tournament mode" switch, you could always just mount a cover for the start button to the case, like a concave acrylic dome with a hinge. Pretty simple.
