First time Stick modder, need encouragement and tips

hello everyone!!!
first time i been here and ever since SF4 i went Stick crazy and now i would like to
make the jump.

modding time!

unfortunatly got no exsperience, but im gonna have some help!

just wanted to know,

the Sanwa JLW-TM-8, is this a good stick to mod with?

i got a Hori fighting stick 3 and a Ghetto Mayflash Ps3/Ps2/PC and i wondering
if the stick will fit inside?

info can be found here

i got all the tools i need, and i got the will, but i dont have the skill or EXP.

Srry if i violated forum rules, im a n00b, be gentle (or not).

Check out and the I love my custom stick thread link:, tons of info.

It’s so easy a caveman can do it.

Good luck with your stick, man.

The Happ stick I have in my prototype box fits with plenty of room in a 2 1/2 inch box. The buttons actually bottom out before the stick does. So, I can’t imagine needing much more space than 2 1/2 inches for anything; since these happ buttons are so deep for no apparent reason…

I believe in you! :woot:

We believe in you! :woot: :woot: :woot:

thx guys, im practicing my soldering as i type!

but the joystick im gonna order, it should fit the hori stick right? (with some modding of corse)

You can do it!

Don’t believe in yourself! Believe in me, who believes in you!

Trying is just the first step towards failing…

The goal is to fail fast so that you can learn from it. Then move on to new failures. Just keep at it!

quotes from tengen toppa gurren lagann always gets me pumped!

alright! i got my game plan!!!

  1. collect and earn the money for this week

  2. Talk to the electrician here at my trade school about wiring (just to be sure!)

  3. wait of lizard lick availabillity, then order my parts and wait,

  4. begin modification!

  5. profit!

im really on a budget here so im doing some things to save me some money while
having the good quality
ok heres what i mean

im going to use the stock buttons from the hori FS3 and install them in the Mayflash stick BUT im gonna order some Sanwa switches (the ones inside the OBSF-30) and stick them inside the Hori stock parts and thus saving me some bucks! sounds like it could work? i think i read somwhere that you can replace the Hori Stock switches with the sanwa ones

oh an could i use the Hori joystick micro switches with the Sanwa Jwl? or does that kinda defeat the poupose?

i gotta make the Marvel Vs Capcom 2 deadline!!! lol
