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.
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.
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.
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.
Just checking the malls that are known for having electronics (V-Mall, Shopsville). As of late, lots of stores are now carrying HRAP3s (plain and T6 variant), whereas a year ago, the only sticks you could find were crappy budget sticks.
As for my “hunt” didn’t buy anything though. Was looking for a stick for the Wii but couldn’t find any. Right now I’m thinking of getting a HRAP 2 instead (since I’ve always wanted to do a mini Versus City type deal) and using converters for PS3 and Wii.
Almost forgot, I was surprised that the arcade in V-Mall had 2 giant Capcom cabs that I didn’t recognize (running Soul Cal 3 and NGBC). Turned out they were CAV 2 00B 60s. I was genuinely surprised since I had assumed that Megalo 50s and Super Megalo 2s were the only large arcade cabs in the country.
Just because you can’t doesn’t mean other people can’t. I can do anything on either set of buttons(without scraping my fingers off), but I just find seimitsu to be a lot more comfortable for me personally. I’ve got big, heavy hands though, so I personally like the extra resistance.
“Seimitsu is only for manly men who have too much power in their button presses. Men who use Seimitsu tend to be the men that open jars for the girlie Sanwa men. Real men like us also like to crack open pistachios that have no crack in them with only two fingers.”
