    PS3 MVC2 TE. Decided to replace the PS3 PCB w/ a PS1 pad. I have an inPin and Xtokki waiting to be used. Just need some new artwork and fix up the PCB/wiring.

    Just got this today!! I'm very excited to use this later tonight!!! Pictures (Especially from crappy cell cameras) don't do it justice. It's a lot cooler (or dick) in person.

    This is probably a repost, but I'm still stoked. Looks even better in person. Please ignore my little brother's hand, a shipping mixup resulted in it being shipped to my parents' house rather than my on base address.

    Don't know when I'll have this 100% modded to my specs, so I figured I might as well post it up right now anyways.

    - Casing: Mad Catz Wii Tatsunoko vs Capcom case
    - Joystick: JLF with Link shaft, LS-55 spring, Octogonal-gate, Tek-Innovations black arrow dustwasher, black bat-top
    - Main buttons: 8x Seimitsu PS-14-KN 30mm clear screw-ins, with re-drawn SF-style punch and kick icons
    - Secondary buttons: 2x Seimitsu PS-14-DKN 24mm clear screw-ins, with an addition plastic sheet to cover up the gaps
    - Turbo panel: stock buttons, with the stock PCB removed, and installed tactile microswitches behind the Turbo and Home buttons
    - PCB: Paewang Revolution
    - Connector: Silver Neutrik USB A-B with black rubber boot
    - LED: one single ArcEye2 (currently set to red) on a light-up-on-press on my blue punch button
    joystick6_SE.jpg
    joystick6_SE_top.jpg
    joystick6_SE_buttons.jpg

    Inside: Not too shabby of wiring, I don't think. The stock PCB has been removed (no sense in wasting a perfectly usable PCB just for the Home/Turbo contacts), rigged up some perf-board with some tactile microswitches for those two buttons. The two smaller daughter-boards serve specific purposes: one is connected to any of the main perf-board contacts, the other is the hex inverter for the light-up-on-press for the ArcEye2 LED.
    joystick6_SE_innards.jpg

    Still to come for this stick:
    - Custom top panel from blklighting (hopefully he'll get around to my order soon)
    - New art (dependant on the new top panel)
    - Slide-switches in the Lock and LS/DP/RS slots for some specific functions I have in mind (need to find the proper sizes of switches)
    - Remove the Paewang, and put in an ImpV2/MCCthulhu/4716 setup, and replace the Neutrik USB A-B with a Switchcraft RJ-45 (eventually)
    - Replace JLF PCB with Toodles' Spark (maybe... though after that, there will be very little of the stick that's actually stock JLF)
    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

    Looking for:
    CPS2 (green or blue): Hyper SF2
    Naomi GD-ROM: SF Zero3 Upper, Puyo Puyo Fever, Triggerheart Excelica, Ikaruga

    Here's a brawlstick I decided to tart up as I didn't have a 360 stick of my own. I like to keep my sticks simple so I used matt white enamel spray paint on the faceplate and finished it with Sanwa clears (smoke and white) and a Seimitsu smoke bubble top. Very happy with the result!

    I could understand modding a TE Rd 1 or 2, but not a more rare MadCatz stick like the MvC 2-3, FF, and CC sticks. That Gambit stick is nice.

    Found this guy tonight. The buttons look to be 24mm but I haven't measured. As it says in bright colors, it's called the "PsychoPad K.O.", and is "HYPER Programmable 10 in 1" and works with the SNES, Saturn, and PSX, but mine only came with the PSX cable. The only information I can seem to find about this thing is the magazine ad scans above from defunctgames.com and a couple ebay listings. If anyone has extra information about this thing, I'd love to learn more.

    Made this stick about half a year ago. 3rd stick i ever made, but still proud of it.
    Made everything myself (well, except of the artwork, it`s by tsuji santa and snyp), including the case. the photos are a llittle old, i did some minor tweaks by now, like properly mounting the pcb to the case and stuff, but you get the idea ^^

    It's been a while since I added a stick to this thread. This is a HRAP3 with the top from an Amazon.co.jp exclusive HRAP2.

    Just added a felt bottom so it won't slide. Got the idea from EightArc sticks.

    Here are some photos of my stick project that I just finished. Case was an old one from B15 and he was nice enough to supply the artwork. Had a friend do most of the technical details here. Sorry no pictures of inside.

    Stick is very small. Gonna take some getting used to since I'm used to playing on the VLX sized ones lol..

    Thx dude ^^

    Here`s one I made for a friend. He loves Beyond good and evil, just as much as he loves tekken. so he wanted this sketch of polarityplus (http://polarityplus.deviantart.com/art/Beyond-WIP-193991235) as an artwork on his stick (I just want to credit the artist, please dont hate me for the link). I just did the coloring and the whole background. Again the case, wiring, etc is all done by myself.

    That's the only imperfection that I couldn't fix no matter how hard I try. I'm just going to live with it for now because my fighting is getting rusty. But yeah. there's it is.

    Why did you plug the last two holes and not just make 6 holes since this is a custom?

    ^I'm guessing it was a last minute decision made when the plexi was already cut.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    I like how your stick turned out, no matter what they said in the other template thread. After all, at the end of the day it's YOUR stick and it shouldn't matter as long as YOU are happy.

    I don't mind the constructive critisism to be honest, but the way that guy went about telling me was douchy to say the least. There's a diffrrence between "this is how you can improve" and "you're making my eyes bleed".

    Keep going! If you are doing this with the right spirit, you will notice your mistakes, learn and be eager to make another one without the eventual flaws that may bother you now. The fun is to try to make it better than the last time! :D

    As for the plugs, at least you were able to match their color with your paint job, which is much better than using, say, black ones. :D Personally, I guess I'd prefer to put some "dummy" buttons rather than plugs, but it's just a matter of taste. :)

    Thanks for all the support guys. This is my second stick, and a lot went wrong with it to say the least, but I'll know now for next time. The actual functionality of the stick is solid (aside from the start button which has a short circuit). It'll probably be a while as I'm in the process of moving to another city and such, so I have to leave all my tools behind at my parents house. Rebuying everything is going to suck, but I'm going to have to to feed my addiction. I have to get back into the groove of fighting though, I'm getting sloppy because I haven't played in so long.

    I'll top you one day B15. Or just buy one from you. Who knows.

    No way, Innovate better! Don't imitate by buying.

    422e2.jpg

    Planned to use an acrylic panel for the top (had leftover sheets), but screwed up while cutting it; while removing the art I scratched the metal panel, so I repainted it, but it is a completely, absolutely, totally horrible job (and I have no intention to sand it down for the 4th time); I planned to make the wiring neater, but I can't solder worth a damn, and this thing is cramped as hell...
    I'll have some art printed to cover it up (someday, maybe), but right now I'm just happy to be finished with it. Oh, and at least it works, so as first tries go it could have been worse :)

    A quick question: while using a clear washer, am I not supposed to use the shaft cover? I've tried it with it still on, and it locked the stick in place...
