    Custom art for my TE. Just had to go for my favorite movie of all time! Will add green leds to the buttons and stick at some point. Still makes me smile everytime i use it :)

    Amazing. That is one of my favorite films ever, and the art looks great on a TE. I'd love to see it again once you have the LEDs installed.

    Yeah it would be.

    It occurs to me that, while I showed you those sick pictures of J&J Modding Services' work on my fightstick's innards, I never really showed you guys the face.


    Keep in mind my camera is old and cheap:

    Cut a new 50% opaque bronze lexan top for my stickless stick, this time using 6 button layout. Also added a single LED for effect. Pic added to original post.

    That came out great.
    The details are excellent, like the small rounded wood for the middle threaded inserts.

    They don't just look good, they feel great to play on. blklightning really puts out a fine product.

    Not the proper thread to ask for advice...looks like you have too much solder. Solder balled up like that have a tendency to pop off and take part of your pcb with it

    Too much solder my friend. Also the wires should be relatively parallel to the PCB. You seem to have put the wires more perpendicular to the PCB so the wire is like a cherry on top of a solder icecream.

    This would pretty much be my 6th custom stick.
    Was gonna post this up when I had all 4 currently-WIP custom sticks done, but at this point, god knows when my order from LizardLick will be shipped...

    Appropriately named the "Neptune-stick".

    Outside:
    - Artwork from "Choujigen Game Neptune" ("Hyperdimension Neptunia")
    - Top panel is 14"x8.5" (legal-size paper in landscape view), casing is 15.5"x10"
    - Wooden case, painted with a hammered-metal-texture gloss white
    - All Seimitsu screw-in buttons; color-swapped parts for the most commonly used buttons
    - JLF with GT-C circular restrictor and Qanba white dustwasher & shaft cover (I had one of Phreakazoid's "The Link" shafts in there at the time of these photos; it has since been moved to another stick)
    - Layout is NOT Vewlix; I play with the Straight-6 buttons, so this is a hybrid of the Capcom-US layout and the Vewlix (ie, take the Vewlix layout, align the stick to the middle of the button rows; shift the bottom row of buttons 7mm to the right to align it with the top row). I also prefer all my buttons on the face of the stick.
    joystick3_neptune.jpg

    Topside:
    - Switchcraft RJ-45 pass-through with Neutrik rubber boot on the stick-side
    - Unused 24mm hole covered by a blank Neutrik plate with rubber boot on the button side, both for visual symmetry and future expansion of connectors
    - 1/4" rubber feet
    - Exactly 2" tall (not counting the rubber feet)
    joystick3_neptune_top.jpg

    Inside:
    - PCBs: Imp V2, MC Cthulhu, MadCatz 4716 controller
    - All PCBs are mounted on an ABS plastic "mounting panel"
    - Extra mounting panel available for addition PCBs
    - Threaded inserts for all top and bottom panel screws
    - My cleanest wiring job yet!

    Current at-home stick: Hori VLX Kuro (LS-40-01 + PS-14-K)
    Current portable stick: Mad Catz TvC (LS-40-01 + PS-14-KN)
    Current guest-sticks: custom ABS Modular stick (JLF + OBSN-30), custom Saint-stick (Happ/IL Competition)
    Cabinet: custom "Resistor" cabinet (32" LCD, X360, P1=LS-32-01 + PS-14-KN, P2=JLF + OBSC-30)
    Previous sticks: custom Happ CvS2 Double-sticks, custom Happ Hitomi-stick & Xenosaga-stick, custom Sanwa/Seimitsu Neptune-stick and Sylvia-stick, modded Mad Catz TvC, modded Mad Catz Brawlstick, modded Hori FSVX, modded Exar Exaprize

    Wiring could have been better of course, but that is not a serious issue as long as it works.

    How is 6 buttons cooler than 8? at least with an 8 button layout you have also got the neogeo layout covered. (well really 7 buttons would do for that but still..) this dick thing sounds a bit childish to me.

    It's just because 6 button is classic arcade style. Plus, 6 buttons gives you more room for artwork. And I'm pretty sure it's all in good fun, nobody actually looks down on anyone for using 8 buttons.

    it makes its a bit heavier and more bounce. i use 55 springs on both my JLF's so it offsets it a bit. oh and forgot to show the bottom of the namco. 2011-12-13_18-12-24_909.jpg
    spray adhesive>hot glue in this case. learned the hard way.

    Yea for bigger things like that, that you might need to readjust once applied spray adhesive really is the way to go. I remember reading or seeing somewhere that the best is to clean and spray the surface, spray some on the thing you are applying, and a little on your finger tips and that way you can move it around once it's in place without it catching hold or sticking to your fingers. I used this method and it worked wonders for me when I putting artwork on my Standard Edition.
