every single sf2 & sf3 cab i have ever used was happ concave. like ketchy said about the wico 360, there is this smash to the buttons too. makes playing so intense, tiring... BUT intense
It's awful, I know. Living here in Northern Virginia really doesn't give me much access to any arcades locally.
It's strange actually, the one person who I would've expected to have experimented on optical joysticks like a maniac would be kowal, but I didn't see a trace of either the Sanwa FLASH 1 or the ASCII Answer on his site. The only optical joystick I saw on his site was a WICO Perfect 360, and that was some really whack model I've never seen before

now good FLASH equivalent is U360, I use original base from jap ver JLW, Ultimarc sell U360 with base from J-stick (JLW ver for Euro/US seller)
theoretically base from JLW is better than from JLF (harder spring) but dynamics still sux, why? because U360 use pivot bearing.

all(6?) P360 ver:
1. WICO Perfect 360 optical hub kit for all leaf switch base joystick
2. WICO Perfect 360 spring action WICO leaf switch (soft spring:))
3. WICO Perfect 360 Ultimate Joystick (with special hub) (I see only diagram on HAPP, I think optical hub fit too on CoinControl Joystick - Casino Stick)
4. WICO Perfect 360 Super Joystick (with special hub) (for me is best ver P360 base from Super is ideal)
5. WICO Perfect 360 hub integrated look how normal HAPP P360 (hard spring)
6. HAPP Perfect 360 hub integrated

hey i just wanted to post that my search for a sanwa flash has ended! i actually got two! one is a new one off of ebay sold by srk member and one from fujifilm who sold me his steve tren stick that comes with a flash. big thanks to ibeatu for the heads up on the stick fujifilm was selling! i def had a lot of support from you guys along the way, thanks so much everyone
i also jsut wanted to add, i dunno what i did meus, but whatever it was, i'm sorry. we had done business before and it went smoothly, at least i thought we did, we both gave positive feedback and such, so i dunno what i did wrong but whatever it was, i'm sorry man.
anyway, thanks again! i will be enjoying sanwa optical goodness soon

The problem isn't the board (and the problem is not the sensors either, no matter what Sanwa may want to say. Paired IR LED and photosensors are easy to find). The problem is that I can't cheaply design and manufacture the housing needed to go on the board. PCB fabrication is popular and mature enough that getting boards professionally made is pretty damn easy and cheap. Injection molding can be cheap, but requires a hefty upfront cost for the milling of the mold. That's the problem I currently have, and where it's been stuck at for 2+ years. Protoypes for testing a design could easily run $200 each, and would have to be done before laying out, oh, $3,000 or so for an injection mold, and another $3000 for a run of 1,000. Injection molding is cheap, as long as you're looking at 100,000+ units in a batch.

thanks ikagi chan did you end up finding any differences between the ascii and the sanwa?
XMetal, post: 3841759 wrote:
actually yes i did. could that account for the difference? does the shorter shaft change the depth of the shaft below the control panel or only the height above it?
edit: i'm looking at the ascii shaft i have here and it looks exactly the same as the jlf. i dunno if other models came with different shafts though. the ones i have come from the dreamcast models

i see. thanks for your input ikagi, i been wanting to hear it. if you can get your hands on one, try to get a round gate made out of a two way gate so the throw is small. on the ascii basic fireballs just don't come out often. my statement was based on feel so while i feel pretty sure about what i found, i'd be very curious to see if i'm wrong. i'll be waiting on your exact measurements

Hi, i've been looking into trying out new sticks, and am definitely interested in trying out optical. I came across this stick http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/414F886PHYL.jpg . I see it is called the ASCII FT2 but haven't had any luck in finding information on it. When I search that name, it brings up a fightpad.
Is this an optical stick? Has anyone had any experience with it? What is a general value on it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
