There is no (not to my knowledge anyways) a off-brand JLF or LS-32 shaft extender.
After Market longer shafts include:
Focus Attack as a extended hollow JLF shaft for $14.95 and
Paradise Arcade Shop has the LONG JLF STAINLESS STEEL HOLLOW JOYSTICK SHAFT (JLF-S9F) for $15.00

It will change the dynamics of the stick by increasing its throw. Longer handle = Longer throw.

@throwyouoverthere
double check and make sure nothing is shorting out your O button or K2 button.
All it takes is a single blob of solder or a single strand of wire.

A question really for the UK people.

Where can I get my artwork printed glossy style with the stickyback stuff on it. I think most people on here call it “lamilabel” or something? I’ve googled a few places and one price I’ve found locally is £18 (inc VAT/tax). I just wanted to know if there was some place someone has used regular (online maybe) that is affordable and reliable.

I’m based around the North West/Manchester area if that helps.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance to whoever helps.

Hey everyone,
there’s probably another question similar to this, but I did take the time to search and didn’t find anything.
Okay, so I want a SSF4 TE-S stick (preferably white, but I’d take black) for the Xbox 360. However, I can’t find anywhere online that has it without a ridiculous pricing. If anyone can link me to one, I’d appreciate it. Also, I noticed the SFxT Pro line stick is on sale for 100 dollars, is it the same size as the TS-S?

The SCV TE is like a TE-S and so is the TTT2 TE. The only difference is the layout. The only way to get a TE-S is ebay or TO. SFxT is lighter and much more compact compared the regular TEs.

I already have a SCV TE and I really want another stick. Also, I sorta regret it because I don’t like the Namco layout too much. I’m not really a fan of the standard-sized sticks either and the SSF4 stick is something I think I’d like. I’m open to more suggestions besides that one though as long as it’s about the size of the TE-S and it has a viewlix layout.

I think the only readily available Vewlix layout TE style stick is the MLG one from Madcatz now?

The Madcatz VS stick is a nice size with Vewlix. You could wait for a sale maybe?

Or you could go Hori with say HRAP VA SA Kai maybe? If you want white you could go for the older VX SA. Similar dimensions as a TE but less palm room depending on how you like your stick.

The Qanba Q4RAF is roughly the same dimensions as the TE’s. You can get it in white too.

edit:
One last note, there’s a great thread on stick selection here.

I really like the “shrinked” size of sticks like the TE-S (and the SCV stick even though I’m not a fan of the layout), so the regular sized TE’s and the HRAPs are not the kind i’m looking for. If I can just be directed to a place where I can purchase a TE-S at a fair price, that’ll be great.

I said the TO and EBAY. What you can do is order a replacement plexi from ART Tek innovations to get a vewlix layout if needed.

Ah I misunderstood what you meant about not liking the standard size. The PRO is smaller somewhat lighter, that’s probably your cheapest bet then.

Either that or wait for the MLG stick to be in stock again and buy the TE-S replacement panels to replace the sides to make the stick into TE-S size.

And use the stick with just the plexi as the top cover? :o The usual plexi’s aren’t rigid enough to serve as a top panel so he’s still going to need an underplate that uses a vewlix layout that goes under the plexi.

@DarkSakul

Looking now…

Thanks Darksakul!

Art sells replacement panel plexis. They are used to replace the metal panels. I’ve bought a few for my HRAPS and have one for one of my TEs

Sorry guys, double posted…

Okay, 1 more thing. can I take the panels off the Round 1 TE and put Te-S panels on it? otherwise I think I’ll just get the Fightstick Pro

@DarkSakul

I don’t see any solder or wire fragments, I’ll have to look closer…

Final Burn Alpha says “Waiting for Joy-1 Button 3 to be released,” when I try to assign the buttons…

When I was soldering, the wire was connected to the Cthulhu. Could the heat have traveled up the wire and damaged the Cthulhu?

That’s the 1st time I tried to solder and did not do it right. The iron was on the wire for a while…I’m sure it got hot but not enough to melt the solder…

Don’t know what I’m doing and will never do that again!

Thanks Darksakul!

Oh right forgot he sells the full thickness plexi’s too. That would solve FearTheFuhajin’s problems then.
Get the SCV stick + get Art’s full replacement plexi as per BartStation’s suggestion.

The TE-S side panels will indeed fit on a Rnd 1 TE, I installed one in my friends Rnd 1 TE. Granted depending on how your Rnd 1 TE fits together you may have a bit of a gap where the sides join together (in other words a slight gap).

:slight_smile:

A threaded standoff could do the job, but you need one in an M6 thread (I think). Something like this could server, if you can deal with the hexagonal profile.

Okay, so where can I buy a round 1/2 stick?

hey i’m from the uK. There isn’t much alternatives in the UK. have a look for Gremlin olutions (i think it’s called arcadeworld now). They have a specialist printing to print on a sticker.

If you modding a SE stick, the best alternative and much cheaper is to laminate your art work, cut out your art work and then use a spray adhesive (it’s called spray mount, basically a can of glue in spray paint form). That will make your artwork stick.
