Hi guys, I was asked by a friend of mine what size were his buttons because he wants to order some sanwas for his stick. I told him to send me a pic of his stick and this is what he sent me:
Does anybody know what kind of stick this is or more importantly what size are the buttons for this thing? He told me that he bought it in Hong Kong some time ago and its dual mod. This is all of the info I have. I know its not much to go off of, but any help would be appreciated. Tnx guys ^^
Its ether an PS2/Game Cube Era Hori or a Knock off judging just by the case shape and design.
As Hori never had a SF IV license I am willing to say this is a Knock off. Buttons can be anywhere from 28mm to 33mm.
The size is not referring to the size of the out side rim but the size of the hole the button physically takes.
So for Sanwa Buttons I am willing to go on a limb and say 30mm. If the holes are too small/ snug some sanding can widen those holes.
24mm buttons will be too small.
I was also wondering, what does the tail end of that cable looks like, I wonder if is both a USB and and a PS2 end coming from the same cable?
I spoke to my friend and he said that the stick is not a hori. He said there was no brand name that he could see, so i think that its a knock-off. He told me that the tip has ps2/usb. Not sure how much more this info would help but that’s all I got for now.
well just don’t speak in absolutes I agree the OP’s Stick is a knock-off but don’t put out false info just to get your point across The thread is viewed by many false info is false info and can cause confusion You don’t have to know everything about all arcade sticks a google search works wonders to verify
I would fair as well as anyone if I don’t know something I don’t put it out as fact
Your friend would be better off to actually remove 1 button (if possible) and measure the hole.
This might not be possible because the buttons are likely soldered to the PCB and to remove one you have to desolder the PCB from all the buttons.
If the hole measures about 1 3/16 in then it is good for 30mm sanwa obsfs. If they are 1 1/8 then you might need to find some hori ex2 buttons and put sanwa switches in them or something.
You know what, what ever. Seriously this " false info is false" statements are annoying as I never try to intentionally mislead people (at least on SRK, 4 Chan on the other hand is fair game). I try to be flat out honest, even to the point it often comes out brutal or rude as I don’t like sugar coating anything. I tell it how it is, or at least how I perceive it to be.
I honestly didn’t know the HRAP SFIV existed at all, I know about the Tekken, Soul Calibur, Arcana Heart and a bunch of other theme sticks, but until the U MvC 3 Stick I had no idea Hori ever dabbled in a Capcom game’s stick ever.
So excuse me if I get upset because people assume I should know something and I don’t.
Not like there some master list I have magical access too
Let me Guess Sand paper
Sounds like something you, I or some other listed modder would do, but do you think the OP’s friend is up to the task?
I may be reading this wrong, so is why I am typing back.
But you do not have to excuse anything to me, because I did not type my Post to be against you.
I seriously thought you did not include the HRAP SFIV in your Thread.
Because you specifically said you disregard Limited and Game Licensed.
So if you did know about it, it wouldn’t be on the list, being that it is Game Licensed.
I’m replying because you Quoted me.
But I don’t know if your response to the Quote is directed to me.
Or if it is to anyone who reads this Thread and see you are upset.
Actually, as I am typing this end of my Post, I’m thinking the response to Quote is not to me.
I am thinking the Quote is to go along with your response is for outside readers.
For them to know that you did not know, not that you did not include in List.
Internet is so hard to read.
I think it is my Asian.
If you omitted the “So excuse me if,” from the sentence, I would not have typed this Post.
I’m just trying to figure this out, I’m too Asian to comprehend! :sad:
I’m not going to argue about it but you get “annoyed” I get annoyed when someone who does’t understand what I’m saying If you dont know what your talking about dont elaboration on it or dont try to use it to prove a point even if the guy is new to the world of arcade sticks
