    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?

    It should be the same as the V3-SA. Only difference I'm away of is the case color (slate gray vs black) & artwork.
    Is there anyway to remove the artwork without destroying it?

    Not that I'm aware of since it looks like a PITA to remove in the 1st place:

    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.

    7094508001_ecf21e72de.jpg

    Music theme, all stickers and artwork is either Record label logos or artist logos and probably says a lot about my musical taste.

    7094492057_79f5355dc9_z.jpg

    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 :D

    Got one recently from ebay only paid 46$ since the seller thought it was broken due to the corner of the box being mooshed (wich also caused a small line of discoloration on the right corner of the stick) but the stick itsself works just fine

    It's not technically an astro p2 but it would be the closest approximate standard layout. It's actually a customised version of the 'hitbox' layout.

    I had the panel fabricated in stainless steel for me as a prototype (I have one spare). I also had 2 plates fabricated with another layout where the jump button was tighter to the kick buttons. Both are shown earlier in the thread if your interested in how they compare.

    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.

    If you have access to another 360 try it there, and obtain a RMA/Replacement quickly (if necessary) as shipping can take forever unless you pay a buttload.

    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 :D
    No. I ordered a TE bag and when it came the other day I tried with the UMVC3 stick and it doesn't even come close.

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

    Yes. Wire length does not matter. But opening the stick will void your warranty.

    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.

    (Edit)
    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.)

    "layout"? I would have to say yes, since they are both a viewlix layout.
    If you mean spacing (ie, distance between buttons and joystick) i cant confirm with 100%, but i would think so. Im not lucky enough to own a vlx.

    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 havent had the chance to use an ls-58 (i plan on picking one up soon, especially since right now it seems like its easier to acquire than an ls-56) but from talk in another thread the answer seems to be YES.
    Should be short throw like an 56, but softer spring.

    Hi all,

    Noob to modding here and hopefully this hasn't been answered (couldn't find anything in the thread or on the forum). I have RAP V3 SA coming in the mail and want to have everything ready to mod it.

    I want to go with custom art and acrylic cover but I am wondering if I need to use adhesive spray if I am doing a cover? If so what is the best way to apply spray? Directly to the art or to the RAP base?

    Also how should I do the print if I am doing acrylic? Laminate or no, gloosy print? Just wondering what the best option for printing it out is if I am using a cover.

    Thanks guys.

    I've had the VX-SA for roughly 9 months and I've had so many problems with it. :( I think I may have gotten one that was made poorly.

    Anyways, I've had problems with the quick disconnects coming off easily and I found out that the female crimps were tightened too much. When they put on that plastic casing for the crimp and then tried to jam it onto the terminal, it forced the crimp backwards, breaking the plastic casing. Thus, it kept coming off whenever I push the buttons too hard. I've had to take off the casing then loosen the crimps (which isn't easy. Is there even a tool for that?) then tighten them correctly.

    Another problem which was asked earlier in this thread was about the turbo settings. When I toggle on the turbo settings for 6 of the 8 buttons then toggle it to off, the buttons continue to be on turbo mode. It's as if the PCB's memory never gets cleared, or maybe faulty wiring in the turbo circuit board. Only way I can get it to reset is to disconnect and reconnect the controller from the console.

    Has anyone else had problems like this? I feel like I can't really trust Hori for their craftsmanship after so many problems with this. :s

    Where did you get the stainless steel top panel?
    Apologies haven't been round these parts for a while. I had the panel custom made for me. I think I mentioned it back up in the thread. I had two slightly different layouts prototyped. I have the spares knocking around somewhere it's great as it won't ever get damaged by finger acid even if the top plate gets scratched :)

    I've had my V3 for a while now and I love it. My one complaint is the location of the Start button. The buttons are so sensitive that an accidental brush is enough to pause the game (would have cost my buddy the round at EVO this year when he borrowed it, but fortunately his opponent was cool about it). The new Hori V3 Kai sticks have the option to toggle the Start and Select buttons on and off, but I'm not really keen on dropping another $130 for a new stick after having this one for only a few months, but I really want to fix this Start button problem.

    Is it easy/possible to crack open my stick and mess with the wiring so pressing the Select button reads as pressing the Start button and vice-versa? I feel like that's probably the best solution available (if it can be done without too many headaches) short of buying a new stick or custom panel. Anyone else have any experience with a simple (I think???) modification like the one I'm describing?

    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 places.
    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).

    So quick question to all the owners with a game edition HRAP V series, how's the stock factory holding up? I would imagine anyone with an Arcana Heart 3 or Blazblue Continuum Shift would start to see problems with the graphic under heavy play(typical adhesive bubbling up or graphic rubbing/scratching off).

    I'm currently questioning whether I should pick up an Arcana Heart edition over the Continuum Shift as a collector's item(being that AC3's HRAP is the earliest game-limited edition stick)...by Collector's item, I mean never really playing on it since everyone I know with a HRAP V series has developed some nasty surface wear and or bubbling. I wouldn't know, my graphics are changed right away on my past three HRAP V3s...

    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.

    Hey guys, I'm pretty much a first time modder, I have a question about the secondary PCB in the V3 and how those should be wired to a Sixaxis board to get the controller indicator LEDs to function. I've removed the harness for the LEDs on the sub-PCB and rewired them, but I'm not clear on where to wire it to the Sixaxis PCB. Any help would be appreciated.

    If it helps anyone, I'm using an older version of the Sixaxis, it has a tab jutting up in between the analog sticks,and it will be wired to a Leo v2.
    Thanks in advance!
