    Trying out the PS-14gs. Only like them for MvC2 right now, but prefer Sanwas for anything else. Going to give it more time before I completely write them off.
    I started putting PS-14G on everything after using a Namco and then EX SE. I prefer them to Sanwas and PS-14GN (though I wish they were screw rather than snap-in.) I seem to manage to break off the damned snap-in tabs every time I remove them from a case.

    I was looking up a PCB diagram on Slagcoin yesterday and ended up mirroring the site. If anyone has time to look it over for missing content, broken images, etc. I would appreciate it. I didn't see any when I was skimming it over.

    i also fell in love with PS-14-G's. Kyle, do you have any of Art's Plexi with PS-14-G's mounted? i'm contemplating whether to order some Plexi from Art but don't want to switch to another button (since the plexi adds extra thickness to the CP).

    Hmmmm.... Where can I get the clear nuts from the PS-14-KN without buying the whole button?

    I want to use the nuts on the OBSN 30 buttons I have, and don't want to use big orange nuts (oo-er!!).

    Clicky sticks FTW. I can never feel comfortable playing on a stick that doesn't click.

    yeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss i still find it a bit oddly disconcerting that i cant ear a click... sometimes it makes me feel like i havnt pressed the button...

    My dad got a 50" Grand Wega for his home theatre. I loved playing games on it since it brought back memories of playing at the arcades in the late 90's when Megalo 50 cabs were pretty common here.

    :wow:50 inch CRT?!??! I bet that weighs 500+. He got that in the Philippines??!? All I know is that if I bought one from Manilla, it wouldn't make the trip down here to Bias City.

    I have a plexi from Art on my TE but that one has PS-14-GN. Unfortunately there's not an all white PS-14G. You have to get a black rim on it which looked weird with a Vewlix red/white color scheme.

    What's worse is that I've done it plenty of times and I always manage to break at least one in a set. I press them very gently and they still give. Maybe it's my manly Happ hands. The tabs on my SE stick all but disintegrated. I would highly recommend against removing those buttons unless you're swapping them out.

    And good god at the 50'' CRT. I have a 27'' CRT on my desk that weights at least 100 lbs.

    I'm pretty sure Grand WEGAs are rear-projection, so that makes them a bit lighter.

    :lol:

    Our 36'' CRT takes two people. I keep a 27'' on my desk that hurts my back to rotate between horizontal and vertical. I have to really want to play a game to change it. It's stuck in the vertical position about 90% of the time for shmups.

    I'm getting to the point where I want to try something new. I have a dozen or so sticks and I don't want to feel like I'm actually collecting the things. So far I've tried (excluding knock-offs and cheap sticks):

    iL (Happ) Competition/Super
    JLF
    ASCII Optical
    LS-32
    LS-40 coming today
    LS-56

    I want to get an older Wico P360 but I haven't managed to snag one. I also wanted to try a Suzo stick but no one makes cases that fit them. I'd also take a PS2 Saulabi stick if I could find one at a decent price.

    I was just on a conf call at work (outage) and ignoring my 2-year-old behind me. I turned around to find him dunking a red PS-14-K into a bowl of thick sugary milk left over from Fruit Loops. He'd also spooned some onto my TvC stick.

    So I have an electrical problem with my SE. I recently tossed a PS1 analog pcb in it and the SE's freaked out. When I press two buttons (say, jab and strong) and a diagonal, start and select activate and the diagonal deactivates. Then, when I press three (same two, but hitting short as my third) plus a diagonal, fierce activates with it. Any more and everything activates. I looked through all of my wiring and found nothing different that I've done on my first two dual-mods. I figured that I was fucked.

    So I continue fucking with the inputs and watching the lights activate for no reason and I try the PS2 side of it with a PS3 converter. Everything works just the way it should and I go to try the SE part of it. This time, it works the way it should. I take the converter off and hit up FBA to playtest it before using it for anything else. The same problem as before. I rethink it and notice the only difference is the converter, so I put it back on and try again. Problem solved.

    I'm just leaving this here for anyone that experiences the same issue. I found a fix and I'm content with that.

    At the very least my dad's is. That said, it takes two people to move it slightly (including the matching base table) whenever we have to access stuff in the back.

    No luck in the SF anniversary thread, so I figured I'd repost my question here. I just modded my stick with happ parts, and one of my buttons makes a really loud echoing sound whenever it is pressed during gameplay. The other 7 buttons make a similar sound if you listen closely for it, but this one is super loud. Is this common with new happ buttons and will it go away over time, or is the button maybe defective? So far it seems to work ok.

    so my order from akihabara shop came today. i ordered some ps-14g buttons to replace the ps-14gn buttons i sold, some seimitsu pearl buttons, one ls-32 round gate, ls-33, ls-55-01, ls-56 shaft and an ls-55 spring, seimitsu octagonal gate, and some other stuff.

    first up, the ls-32 with the round gate is awesome. i <3 non square gates.

    as for my the seimitsu pearl, i'll say they're mid tier. it feels ultra smooth, like a cross between a sanwa obsf/obsn and a seimitsu ps-14. my main gripe is that the buttons are noticeably smaller than the sanwa obsf/n. even though they're 30mm buttons, the plunger takes up quite a lot of room.

    next is the ls-55 with an octagonal gate. its a pretty solid stick. it feels like a cross between the jlf with octagonal gate and an ls-32. it has the large throw from the jlf octagonal and the stiffness of the ls-32. it feels pretty sturdy.

    las but not least is the ls-33. from what i read at slagcoin.com, the ls-56 shaft is compatible with the ls-33 as the stock shaft is too low to be mounted on most arcade sticks. however, i was having problems putting the ls-56 shaft on the ls-33 as it grinds the metal washer. it turns out that you need to put on the shaft cover in order for the shaft to work correctly in the ls-33, which akihabarashop forgot. having no other choice, i took the shaft cover from my used ls-56 and put in on the new ls-56 shaft and then start to put the ls-33 together. it worked like a charm. i was doing vipers fff on my first try which normally takes me 2 to 3 tries to get. the spring was loose but not as bad as people made it out to be. imo, sanwa springs tend to be looser. nevertheless, i replaced the ls-33 spring with an ls-55 spring and it works perfect. definitely my second favorite stick at the moment.

    I've got to get used to Seimitsu or Sanwa buttons and sticks at some point. My latest work in progress is using a JLW with happ buttons (I'm used to the tension of a competition and I haven't been able to convince myself I don't need the clicky, tactile fee of a cherry switch under the buttons yet). I wonder if it's worth getting a TE or SE and tossing a JLW inside for practice. At least changing the art woud be a snap. I don't think I want to put custom money behind something I may or may not like. But who knows...

    Well if you had a PSP Go, you could padhack a Sixaxis and use it with that.

    Actually, has anyone very tried to "padhack" a PSP and put it inside a stick case?

    I hate to post advice on stuff I haven't tried yet, but you might be interested in these:

    OBS-30A.jpg
    Sanwa OBS-30A

    OBS-30B.jpg
    Sanwa OBS-30B

    I was planning on picking up some in my next akihabarashop order just for kicks, to try them out and post some impressions. You can get the OBS-M-1 switch separately if you already have OBSN- or OBSF-30s, as they appear to be identical button housings with a different type of switch attached. It also looks like you can swap in Cherry switches if the Omrons it comes with feel too stiff. I recall a post from Per some years back saying he really liked them stock, though.

    You can find them at akihabarashop.jp under Arcade > Buttons > Special.

    Just based on looking at these, I think they'd be pretty nice for a Cherry-style microswitch button. The plunger is relatively short and appears to be centered directly over the switch actuator (unlike Happs), so it should have a pretty direct feel. No way for me to tell how stiff the spring in there is, or if there even is one besides whatever is in the Omron switch. Maybe someone else here has tried these.

    [Note for TEs: I doubt these can fit without cutting up the center plate inside the TE housing.]

    I don't know, but the time I have is short. I have several options.

    1) Mod my Xbox stick to be PS3/PS2 compatible, which I can't do myself and requires about as much money as another stick, and can require time if I buy the parts, wait for them to come, send my stick out to get modded, wait for it to come back, etc.

    2) Buy a PS3 stick, and later down the road mod them both.

    3) Do something with my Tekken 6 stick

    Final Round only uses Playstations, which I think is a terrible decision for folks like me lol

    I really like the spring stiffness of the LS-32 on my JLF. A little stiffer than the JLF spring but moving it doesn't take much energy either.

    I'm currently debating whether I should use my modded actuator that reduces throw or stick with the stick JLF actuator. Sometimes I feel like the reduced throw gets in the way of doing motions, but other times I feel like the reduced throw will force me to not ride the gate more, and it makes dashing and such easier.

    Anyone own a cab? I have a serious urge to get one despite being in small-as-hell-town TX.

    There's a local vendor who has 20 or so cabs in various (mostly poor) conditions. The one I'm after is a 4 slot Neo-Geo MVS. He has to get a new chassis for the monitor but overall it's in good shape. He wants $300 for it. That works for me since it isn't gutted and has the original Metal Slug. I would honestly rather have a Candy Cab. It seems like a decent compromise though for a wooden cabinet.

    I wonder what is wrong with me. When SF4 and the T.E. sticks were announced I decided I was going to skip the whole thing because I did not want to spend $360+ for one game (2 sticks and the game itself). I know have about 9 different joysticks, 3 of which I built, and I have another I want to build. A couple of days ago I put in an pre-order for Hori premium stick and when the guy called me to confirm if it was for PS3 or 360 I canceled my order because I could not decide if I wanted to sell my Hrap 3VSA, the VSHG, or the namco stick, or my 2 anniversary sticks.

    I have an extra ls32, about 12 balltops, and about 30 buttons and 2 cthulhu boards.

    What happened to me? I blame SRK.

    the SAME thing happened to me. before sf4 came out, i was pretty happy with my mas, red octane and the arcade stick i built from scratch. just last year, i bought like 6 additional sticks. the madcatz te were sold out so i got an SE stick for $100(!). after evo, i was spoiled by the TE sticks, bought one and dual modded it. 2 weeks later i bought 3 te sticks since it was on sale for $100 with tax and everything at frys. i sold my original te stick and another new one to a friend. now i have 2 te sticks which i heavily modded. i bought an ascii optical stick for $100 from an srk member here since i heard it was nearly identical to the sanwa flash. i bought another one a few months later for $70 on ebay (couldn't resist the deal). i also wanted to try out the seimitsu ls-32, ls-33, ls-55, and ls-56 so i bought a hrap se stick when it was on sale just so i could try the ls-32 and replace the t5 stick i destroyed a while back.

    my collection

    now i sorta want to get a namco stick despite the fact i hate square gates. hopefully, i can trade one of the ascii sticks for one of those.

    i have an extra ls-56, an ascii optical with all sanwa parts, a sanwa jlf, a sanwa jlw, a stock hori stick, 12 stock ascii buttons, countless hori knockoff buttons, numerous happ concave buttons and a like 6 ball tops.

    wtf is wrong with me? i blame srk too.

    SRK TechTalk needs a stick collectors anonymous support section. Only here will you find people that have sticks for systems they don't even own.
    Is it bad that half the reason a finally bought a PS2 again is that I had to test out my padhacks and T5 stick?
    One day I'm gonna need a Saturn stick, you'll see!
    All this space inside an HRAP seems like such a waste, I should put some PCBs in there!

    It's comforting to know that I'm not alone in my stick harvesting. Every time I build one I tell myself 'that's it! I'm never doing this again' then two weeks later I'm ordering new parts.

    I've also been straying into collecting more and more. I just don't know what it is about sticks, I don't even use all of them! I blame SRK too, having all of these cool sticks on display just spurs me on.
