Best Ultimate Tech Talk Hang Out Loud Edition Season V


Well, I finished re-wiring my HRAP EX-SE. I previously had a JLF-TM-8 installed in it and decided to put the LS-32 back into it since I just finished buying a Madcatz MvC TE. Now I have a Seimitsu stick for Shmups and a Sanwa stick for fighting games.

I bought the spools of 18 gauge wire, terminal strip, .187 quick disconnects and zip ties at a local Radio Shack shop for less than 15 bucks. If I would’ve ordered them online at like Lizard Lick or it would’ve been a bit more expensive PLUS I would’ve had to wait for it in the mail. Local Radio Shack shop FTW!

I also took off the plastic film that was on top of the HRAP EX-SE control panel and now its a matte black finish, it gets dirty easily though. My next investment will be a black or mirror plexi for my HRAP with SNK 4 button layout. If Nareg ever gets Black on Black Seimitsu PS-15-GNC buttons I’ll be getting 4 of those for my plexi along with a black meshball too.


And I was about to recommend going for blue since there was already someone who did yellow.



I have used the VDigi Wii -> VGA cable on a few different monitors without issues… just throwin’ that out there. It’s the only one I’ve used though.


the JLF ultimate mod is stupid… there i said it.

i must be the only person in this earth who thinks it’s dumb to put tape on the acutator and insert paper into your microswitches.


I used something similar with no luck. the one I used didn’t have dipswitches on it though, so that very well might work. I went ahead and ordered a High-box though, since Luckyday recommended it and I can use my PS2 with it as well. Thanks for the recommendation, though.


Nah man you aren;t the only one, I agree with you. The JLF is perfect in every way. Modding the JLF with extra springs, paper in microswitches, andputting tape on the actuator is stupid and just ruins the perfection of it all.

Only mod(s) I will do to a JLF is…

Put an LS-40 shaft cover on it, stretch out the stock JLF spring (this actually makes it feel a bit stiffer and good at the same time, NO HOMO! :lol:) and I’ll use an octo-gate. Thats about all I’d mod on a JLF.


Meh, all stock JLF is perfect for fighters.


Stock JLF is the Best JLF.

Although I just use a regular HORI Fighting Stick EX2.
So Hori Joystick and Hori Buttons!


I’ve got the money to buy a new JLF and buttons for my new TvC FightStick, but I’m going to wait a week for when I get my income tax return to place a large order for all the parts I’ll need for this and the two sticks I need to finish for my kids.

I tried using the stock stick, but it’s just not doing it for me.

No, you’re not the only one.


I’ve had two good soldering iron burns. My last one hurt for days. I’m much more aware of the iron now.

I think I made the right choice. Yellow looks very nice for 2P.

You’re not. Putting tape on the actuator is silly.


Going out stick hunting this afternoon.


You are only repeating what I said.


You implied stretching the stock spring and putting an octogonal restrictor on it, that’s not the definition of all stock.


I’ll assume you’re from Manila area correct? Do sticks just pop up in Japanese ‘surplus’ stores? I’m trying my luck here in Cebu and they never have sticks…The coolest thing I saw was a Kendo set with a shinai!

EDIT: Also, interesting to see Sanwa is selling white-rimmed OSBF-30’s now.


Looking at the other Seimitsu sticks on the market, what is the difference between a LS-40-01 and a LS-56-01.

How do they compare to the LS-32-01?

Firmer, softer, etc.


Round ls32 subguide? I’ve only seen the round main guides. Is this new or have I never just seen it?


My friend down in Japan found an snk SCB-U4 cabinet in japan. He said it was selling for somewhere 100-200 USD (i dunno how many yen) with the monitor and the original cp. he sent me pictures of the cabinet, and I was pretty impressed by it. but the original control panel disgusts me, and it also disgusts m h9omeboy. so i jus need to know what 2P control panels are compatible with the SCB-U4.


You just never saw it before now.
Not new.


nah man. i did some research, i do realize that this cab is old as fuck. but, we are getting the cabinet in good condition. i just need to find out what control panels are suitable for this cab. we be using it for an mvs cab anyways because we got fuck loads of mvs games.
