Can someone MOD my Hori EX2 Arcade Stick (Xbox 360)


#1

Hey guys,

I’ve been reading alot on this forum and some have you have made some amazing Mods for your sticks!!

I really really want to Mod my Hori EX2 for Street Fighter4 by adding new butons and a better stick, But i wouldnt be able to do it in a million years, Its too hard for me and i dont really have the time!

Its the fact is that i dont know anything about electronics like connecting all the parts up and Soldering!

Do any of you know people who i could send my stick to and get it modded for a price? does a service like this even exist??

Or is there a Total Noobs guide anywhere, All the guides seem to be for people who have done some sort of eletronics before?

Or is it that easy that i could do it myself?

I’m sorry if this didnt require its own thread, i did try searching

Unfortunately, the EX2 requires basic soldering, which honestly isn’t that difficult.

(last one seems to be down)

That’s all I can help you with. The services you’re looking for are a bit rare.

It should be easy enough to do yourself, you just need to take it slowly and carefully.

There’s a whole thread about the ex2 I think, and theres definitely one about the fs3, which has the same innards plus 2 buttons.

The guides all have pictures too, so it should be pretty simple for you, if a bit confusing at first.

Ive had a look and its still too hard to do if you have never done anything like this before…

Ill just have to stick to not modding it

Hey there’s a couple peeps on the Trading forums who does modding service…One guy is Airthrow, i think he charges $30 to mod an EX…

The thing is do you really want to mod your EX2? In the end it will cost you just as much as a TE stick…

$30 mod service
$20 shipping back n forth
$20 Sanwa buttons
$25 Sanwa/Semitsu stick
$10 Artwork

$105 just to mod it…Seems a bit expensive…

Here’s a better option you can do:

*Look in the trading forum, sometimes you can find a modded EX2 for less then $100…

*Got to the region section & see if you can find someone locally to do your mod…

*Sell your EX2 stick buy SFIV SE or HRAPEX & mod it yourself…
