    I have a question, what if you bought an arcade stick with all sanwa parts and you buy a Seimitsu balltop like this one for modding http://www.ebay.com/itm/Seimitsu-LB-39-Pink-Bubble-Top-/130777846572?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e72f7932c Will it screw in? I ask this because I have a JLF not a Seimitsu stick. Thanks in advance.

    Yes the ball top screws on.
    And yes both joystick brands uses the same size and thread for their ball tops. Sanwa and Seintsu tops are interchangeable. Only the Sanwa bat tops and 45mm (Freaking huge) ball tops need a bat top adapter to fit.
    Only the Sanwa JLW-UM-8 Joystick can't accept normal ball tops, it can take the bat tops and 45 mm ball tops without the adapter.

    Art Hobbies at http://www.tek-innovations.com can make custom dust washers. Transparent Pink isn't an option (yet).
    Mad Catz at their online store http://store.gameshark.com sells various color dust washer and shaft sets but their pink is not transparent
    Focus Attack sells Sanwa brand Transparent dust washers and shafts but they do not carry pink.
    Ok, so I've been playing fighting games for a while now, but I've never been great.  I'm a southpaw, and I usually play cross-handed out of necesity.  It's not comfortable, and I am pretty certain it affects my gameplay.  Now, I have acquired a TvC stick, and a Soul Calibur V fight stick.  I'd like to try modding at least one (if not both) so that the stick is on the right.  Pretty much,  when I have brought this up people are like "oh, get used to it.", or "just flip it around."  Turning the stick around means I'm pulling down to jump.  That just makes things harder.  And, since I've been playing cross-handed for almost 15 years, and it's still not working,  "getting used to it" isn't exactly an option.  With all that being said, I'm wondering how easy it would be for either of these sticks to be swapped over.  I'd like to know before I start opening cases and seeing wires are too short and such.  I hope this is the place to find out.  Google has almost nothing in the way of southpaw mods.
    So you want to do a southpaw mod, it is completely possible. What you need is ether a custom replacement top panel or a custom stick case with the top panel that allows for the joystick to be on the right.
    The wiring for a southpaw mods are identical to the more traditional layouts. Depending on the stick you might have to extend or replace wiring to be longer, which should not he too hard, just cut and splice your wiring, you can use but crimp connectors or cut and solder and cover the expose wiring with electric tape or better yet shrink wrap. If you got crimpers, redoing the wires for buttons are not hard at all, and some part stores offer pre-done wiring with disconnects on one end of the wire.

    Yes this mod is completely possible. Other than the legnth, the wiring is the same for a south paw as it would be for the regular style layout. What you will need is a replacement top panel. The TvC stick would be out for this kind of mod since no one does Mad Catz SE/Brawl/TvC panels. So you have to go with your Soul Calibur stick. You can order a custom acrylic panel from Art's Hobbies http://www.tek-innovations.com

    I looked and looked, and even those who do customs do not make a transparent Pink Dust Washer and Shaft Cover, at least no one I know in the US.
    Mad Catz on their online store  http://store.gameshark.com sells a opaque pink dust washer and shaft set.

    Yes all ball tops that Sanwa and Seimtsu make are screw on.
    Sanwa and Seimtsu use the same size and thread for their 30mm ball tops. Both brands can use tops from each other, so your Sanwa JLF can use a Seimtsu pink Bubble top.
    The exceptions are Sanwa Bat Tops and Sanwa 45mm ball tops that need a bat top adapter and the Sanwa JLW-UM-8 joystick, which because of it's thicker shaft only accepts the larger sized bat tops and 45 mm ball tops.

    South Paw mods are completely possible. For a Southpaw mod you basically need a custom made top panel. You be hard pressed to find a custom top panel for the TVC stick, unless you know someone who can do sheet metal work and do it well.
    The Soul Calibur V stick would be your best bet. If its the Mad Catz Soul Calibur stick you have to cut out a middle layer so the joystick can fit on the right side, You not have the same issue with the Hori version of the stick.

    Art Hobbies at http://www.tek-innovations.com does acrylic replacement panels for the Mad Catz TE and the older Hori Hrap sticks (Hrap 1,2,3 and EX).
    Blk Lighting does customs for various stick with metal panels. But he does his orders in batches. So you have to wait till he ready to take orders again and there is a wait for panels.

    Yes all 30mm ball tops that both Sanwa and Seimtsu makes are screw on.
    Sanwa JLF series and the Sanwa JWL-TM-8 joysticks as well as almost all the Seimtsu joysticks accept the same ball tops.
    Some of the eceptions exceptions are Sanwa's bat tops and Sanwa larger 45mm Ball tops as they require the bat top adapter to fit and Sanwa's JLW-UM-8 which only accepts bat tops and the 45 mm ball tops.

    Unusual joysticks such as the Sanwa JLJ (flight stick), the Seimtsu LSX-57/ LSX-57-01 (flight sticks) and Seimtsu's LSX-31 (top button) to not take ball tops at all.

    Quick question........
    What size are the Wire with Quick Disconnects that is found in almost all of those Mad Catz and Hori sticks nowadays?
    Or the ones that pretty much everyone uses and is the most common. The size that fits the typical Sanwa OBSC/etc.. buttons.
    Is it .110 or .187?

    I've been trying to get my Xbox fightstick (Madcatz TE S) to work on my laptop, but the thing refuses to work.
    I've downloaded the drivers needed to use it, but for some reason it still doesn't connect. My guide button lights up for half a second before turning off again.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    So, I wanted to thank everyone for the replies to my question. The last question I have is, and this is more for clarification than anything else, can I not just unscrew the plexi off my SCIV stick, and flip both the plexi AND the metal plate? I know I wouldn't have any artwork on it, but I just want to know before I start looking online for parts. Thanks again.

    I'm pretty sure there's a mounting bracket welded to the metal plate that would be on the wrong side.

    Wait, shenanigans here. The answer you are looking for is 0.110" for Japanese buttons. (Sticks that require QDs and Happ buttons are, to the best of my knowledge, 0.187".) However note that 0.110" * (25.4 mm/inch) = 2.79 mm; 0.187" * (25.4 mm/inch) = 4.75 mm

    So we have quick-disconnects, pre-made PCB's for 25 bucks shipped, easy access to quality Japanese parts, and we still don't have a way to make a case without routing tools, metal working tools, and lots of labour?
    I think it's hilarious I can't find a case for under 80 bucks, meanwhile I could just buy some cheap stick off ebay for 25 bucks and get a case with parts and PCB already in it.

    There HAS to be a better way right? Any easy tricks for mounting these parts? Alternative CP options? Can't I just make an MDF bottom and plexi top? I just want to make a 3 button Virtua Fighter stick.

    Alright. Thank you for the reply. I really have never done anything like this before. since you are saying there is something welded in place, does that mean I would have to get someone to fabricate something? Or, could I swap the mounting bracket as well? I also apreciate all the help, and patience everyone has had with me.

    Quick question, do they even make 24mm silent sanwas? If no, is there a mod I can do that won't affect the performance?
    ?! break it.

    Can anyone recommend some type of mounting solution for a ps360+ pcb? I was thinking of maybe ordering some adhesive pcb standoffs or spacers, but I'm curious to find out what other people are using or have had success with. I'm using a case that does not have holes already in it, and I cannot drill (metal case) so I'm trying to find something low profile that won't permanently alter or damage the case. Thanks!

    I was recommended zip tie mounts with adhesive bases and I used it for my install of the PS360+.
    (I know, ugly crooked install lol)
    Just mount a couple and use zip ties to secure the pcb.

    They're cheap, found at any local hardware store. Something like this:

    Yeah the task of actually constructing cases requires a set of tools that you would only have if you are already working in a certain trade.  Good tools aren't cheap either.

    That is what I ended up using in some cases as well.  They work fine, and cleaner than gobs of hot glue.

    Sure, you can just get a cardboard box, and then use a bread knife to cut the layout.

    You should probably open up the stick and look if you're serious about this sort of thing.  I have no experience with a handedness switch, but yeah, there's probably some fabrication that has to be done.

    P.S. I guess posting is the new preview, and I just [b]love[/b] how the bbcode tags work

    What's up SRK....I want to do a LED mod on my hitbox but the Uila that I have are too big...I know it can be done but my experience is only with Uilas from my previous builds...any ideas on who make a smaller LED for the 24mm seimitsu?

    I bought a Mayflash arcade stick recently and decided that i want to mod in a better stick. The online guides show people modding in a sanwa jlf stick and doing things like cutting off plastic tabs, scratching off connections to a "pcb" and soldering wires together. Is there a good joystick out there that is less complicated to install into a Mayflash?
  • Pablo_the_MexPablo_the_Mex HARDBody Joined: Posts: 7,399 ✭✭✭
    There is no straight forward way to upgrade that case, it takes a good amount of work.

    Yeah, the Mayflash case is horrible to mod. 

    Not as bad as an EX2, but still..

    I can confirm that the PDP Afterflow controller (PS3/Wired) works on the PC. Just make sure it installs properly when plugging it in.

    This has doubtless been asked before, but post-upgrade I'm damned if I can figure out how to search the forums... I recently opened up my new SCV TE to change and move the buttons (and what a nightmare that was - can't see me getting them off again whole when I sort new art out. And as for the Start and Select... :( Anyway, one of the bolts in the top panel appears to have threaded (is that the right word?). It's just spinning and not tightening. It was covered in the red glue when it came out, but cleaning that off doesn't seem to have helped. What can I do (apart from regret ever buying a TE)? Cheers!

    So one of the bolts can't be secured in then? Is it possible to dab hot glue in place? It'll hold what you want it to hold, and it'll come apart with some force so it's not a permanent fix.



    I haven't made a stick in 2 years and as such lots of stuff have changed, such as Lizardlick going out which used to be my primary source of acquiring parts. Do places no longer offer assembled Sanwa JLF sticks anymore? I used to simply pay $25 for a joystick with the mounting plate, PCB and all the other shit already put together in a box. If that's no longer in, then what are all the parts needed to construct one?

    Ball Top, Shaft, Mounting Plate, Mounting Screws, PCB (do they come with micro switches already?), harness, that clip thing, a spring, restrictor gate..... and something else...?

    Also, is the JLF-TP-8YT-W the only one left on the market? I used to avoid this specific part number because of some compatibility issue IIRC.

    Yeah since the demise of lizardlick, and ponyboy moving on to other kinds of projects, Focusattack seems to be one of the best shops.  Paradise Arcade also has some good stuff.  I agree though most sellers fail to provide the balltop, mounting plate, or harness which is annoying as fuck.  That was never the case before, and I am not sure why they started doing that.  If anyone has an answer I would like to know as well.

    Haven't modded in a long time and the new site format doesn't let me search specifically in the tech forum.  When installing a ChimpSMD into a Madcatz 360 SFxT Pro stick, is there anything new to be aware of or just straight forward install like the older Chimp into TE?  Thanks!

    Yeah, I think I might just do that - once I've decided on a plexi/ artwork solution...

    What are my options from plexi's? Art doesn't respond to my emails and after Lightning Label Customs took my money and I didn't get anything (been a year now) I'm hesitant to pull the trigger with Art.
