    Still alive everyone... I swear. Things have been super hectic with a number of projects I have been working on amidst turning over as well as prepping to move to Japan. Packing up your life (again) and having to decide what is coming with you and what is going into storage stinks. An entire room has been devoted to boxed arcade sticks that are going to storage :)

    Is the move to Japan "permanent"? I use quotes because I believe that no move is really ever truly permanent in itself; so I guess my question is if, as of this moment, there are a foreseeable move back to this side of the Pacific in the near future?

    Almost have the office cleaned up; and I'm about to tear down my PC to prep for the temp move to my mom's place while our new house is being worked on. If I knew it wouldn't take a couple of hours and my connection wasn't ass right now, I'd buy DBFZ without thinking and practice while I'm on limited internet.

    I’ll be there for at least 3 years. More if the opportunity allows and I’m not ready to come back.

    Nice. When is the actual move happening? And to what city/general area?
    Mainly asking because there's a possibility of me dropping in for a very short visit to Tokyo possibly in the May/June timeframe; the chance eluded me of meeting up with you in San Fran when we were both there in October, I'll definitely try to arrange meeting up for you for at least a drink if we're in the same general area halfway across the world. :D

    I grew up in Yokosuka. I'd love an opportunity to go back to Yokosuka.
    Top three places to be on Yokosuka Naval Base:
    1. Fleet Gym
    2. Benny Decker Theater
    3. Bowling Alley Cafeteria

    Man the 6 button pad that comes with the PC Engine Duo RX Sucks.
    I can hardly do Quarter circle motions on the pad, and the Start button isn't too responsive

    Yeah. The Hori Fighting CommanderPC and Avenue Pad 6 might not look as pretty, but their d-pads are definitely better. The d-pad shouldn’t be that terrible though. Have you disassembled and cleaned?

    I got another white Saturn pad from Japan last month which looked great on the outside, but the inside of the D-pad area was vomit-inducing

    Not yet, I just got the thing and I decide to test it out on Castlevania and Street Fighter II

    Hello all

    I have a quick question about diodes if you don't mind. I am currently modding a hori mini wired gaming pad and all is going well. Ps4 works just fine but in xbox mode it isn't recognized and all buttons are held so from what I have already gathered I am gonna need diodes.

    I currently have my setup wired as such

    Buttons wired to front of ps4 pad then on the back side of the ps4 pad i have wires going to the xbox one pad

    Can I simply wire the diodes in like this

    Buttons to diode then diode to front of the ps4 pad and then back of the ps4 pad wired to xbox one pad

    Or do I have to wire them as I am currently assuming which is having the ps4 pad last so

    Buttons to front of xbox pad and from back of the xbox wire to diodes to ps4 pad.

    Hopefully this makes sense. Thanks for any help.

    EDIT: found my answer

    So, in the time since my last post; I was offered two jobs. One locally working collections for a small agency; and the other is the government contract (preliminary background check came back clean), I took the government contract one because it pays more as a base; and I get government benefits on top of it. However; I don't start until the 26th and I'm working days 7am - 4pm during training (night shift training was until 2am; starting at 5pm but my wife works until 8pm Mon-Thurs and 6pm Fridays). Gonna get bodied every day by getting up at 4:30am and going to bed at 6pm. Whether or not I get the job permanently is gonna depend on the results on the e-QIP check the govt has to do to clear me in order to do my job. So, for the next 30 days at least starting the 26th; I do have a job.

    I also have an appointment on Tuesday to look at a potential residence to move into.

    Took the pad apart and gave it a thorough cleaning, Star button works better and everything more responsive. But the D-pad is still god awful, not Xbox 360 d-pad awful but its not good for quarter circles.

    work stuff is getting real. I went and did my drug test today; and next week I go to have my PIV made to start on the 26th. I have decided for now to commute from my mom's house to work until the e-QIP comes back and I get cleared or turned down based on stuff. Once/If it clears; I'll move closer to work; but for now I'm gonna do my thing and have fun with this job while I have it.

    I was disappointed that street fighter 30th anniversary was not being released on ps3, not like it's a hardware intensive game.
    Having to buy a next gen console for 20 year old games is taking the piss.

    But after upgrading my ps3 hdd to 1TB and downloading everything in my download list, I notice that I have PSOne Classic versions of SFA 1, 2, and 3. As well as PSOne Classic versions of SF 2, SF 2 CE and SF 2 HF.
    So together with the PSN HD remix and 3rd Strike on my PS3 I have already got majority of the collection.

    I'm just missing SF1, SSF2, the first two SF3 iterations and online function in Alpha and Hyper Fighting.

    Looks like im still not going next gen.

    I'm gonna start the process of upgrading my tech toolkit probably in the next month or so after the stuff clears. I've been using two separate USB thumbdrives for Windows and important programs and all that. Looks like a trip into Dallas to Micro Center is in my future; because each of those thumbdrives is 16gb; and I was thinking of getting either a 128gb drive or going for broke and getting either a 256gb or 512gb thumbdrive and loading stuff like DBAN, a universal Windows install image (with updated drivers and copies of Arcade Edition/Tekken 7 already installed), and the programs/games.

    Crud.

    So back in 2011 when I started building Japanese-style sticks (with my Sylvia- and Neptune-sticks), I went to a local plastics factory and bought a large sheet (4' x 8') of 1/16" plexiglass.
    I finally ran out of that sheet a few months ago, so yesterday, I went out to the same plastics factory to buy some more, and got another sheet of the same size.

    Unfortunately, I realized today after starting to work on it that the previous sheet I got in 2011 was polycarbonate/Lexan, while the sheet I got yesterday was acrylic (I simply asked for "plexiglass" both times).
    I got used to the flexibility of polycarbonate, and still trying to figure out how to do the same work in acrylic, since their physical properties are obviously very different...

    Nice...

    Online play is the biggest draw for me, honestly. I still have my copy of SFA:A, which I love (and is one reason I'm still thinking about getting a BC PS3 for cheap one day). Would probably rather of had a HD version of an Alpha game, but the collection works fine.
    And we build BALLER SHIT! (c) Matskat
