How does that black/red/yellow/red/black plexi sandwich look the way it does from certain angles???
I want to see a shot looking straight down at the sandwich while the LEDs are on.
The sandwich doesn’t light up all that much when the led’s are on. They’re visible to me while on my lap, its difficult to take a pic with my phone showing all its depth. I got one with the lights on you can kinda see stripes. It’s a mind F*ck lol Some angles looks like its totally black but in the picture you can see the edges are clear. It’s awesome!
That’s bad ass. It really is the little details that makes those sticks so special. Congrats on owning it. It’s a thing of beauty.
Here is the latest Foe Hammer stick I just got done wiring. Foe Hammer will finish it off by adding the bottom plexi, feet, and touch ups.
It has a PS360+, Remora, Arc Eyes, Speaker/sound board, custom plexi pcb to control the joystick balltop LED & the sound board, and green LED inside lighting.
Speaker/sound board and plexi pcb
Start, Back, Home all light up from the super bright green LEDs inside. It also gives a cool glow.
Here is a vid showing off the speaker/sound board. It’s says “OFF WITH THEIR HEADS,” when the start button is held down. Tapping the start button doesn’t activate the sound board only holding the button in. This way it won’t get annoying for the owner.
Looks really nice.
Got a good eBay deal earlier in the week. Just showed up today!
You can never have too many Virtua Stick High Grades!
Should have used Phreak’s the Link so you can take it out and put it back in again.

Srsly… how much for the Alice in Wonderland stick, like omg want. LOL

If you combine different layers of tinted acrylic the colour can only be clearly seen if viewed from a perpendicular angle. If you look at it from an angle the colours tend to bleed together as they act like colour filters. For this build I fused tinted red and yellow layers together and used a particular glue which gives the end result of molten lava or similar. I was told that AfterFX liked Zangief, Evil Ryu and Yang hence why I went with a black red and yellow colour scheme as those colours can be shared between his fav characters. So anytime he gets bored with Gief artwork he can switch it out for Evil Ryu or Yang.
The lightup of the sandwiched layers wasnt as much as I would have liked due to the non reflective properties of the black sides. Even after using 6 leds inside it still wasnt enough to light them up. The only way to have them light up fully was to drill the layered areas from the inside and insert leds that way but it would have been clearly visible which I didnt want to do.As it is, the room has to be pretty dark for it to show up to be honest.
I’m not sure what Foe Hammer charges for this stick. You would have to talk to Foe Hammer about ordering one or one just like it.
The way it’s done, is that I get a call from Foe Hammer saying they have a stick that needs wiring and the direction they want to go with it. I then wire it up for them and charge them my wiring fee.
That black USB cable is an eye sore. Remove the jack on the PS board and solder directly to the PS board since you already have it plugged into a neutrik. You don’t need it to disconnect from two places. While doing that you can throw some sleeve over it. Also consider rotating the JLF 90-180* so that you can shorten up the wiring. Sometimes a little goes a long way. Keep up the nice work!
I thought that was Goldenboy art for a sec, then I realized it wasn’t
I must admit…I had my doubts. I really like it though! Now you need a disco balltop.
Thanks man. Once I started putting the last bits together after getting my art and plexi order in i knew i picked the right parts for it. Now to actually play some fighters with it. too tired to bother tonight besides my quick button test to make sure i wired them properly again.
