Happ Convex Buttons in Mad Catz SF4 SE FightStick?


#1

Anybody have Happ buttons in their SF4 Standard Edition FightStick? Was thinking about getting them, but wondering if they would fit… Also, can anybody suggest a vendor to buy from?

I know people will suggest Sanwa and Seimitsu, but I really want Happ because I love the clicky-ness of them.

Thanks for the help!

Happ buttons wont fit because its too tall…Do you like to use a 6 or 8 button setup?

There is upchuck who put Happ Buttons into his Mad Catz Street Fighter IV Arcade FightStick?.

Thanks for the response guys :slight_smile:

@azianmixx I use 6 buttons, but the Mad Catz Fightstick is 8 buttons.


#5

Oh yes, forgot about this.


#6

are iL buttons clicky?


#7

iL and HAPP are pretty much the same thing, so probably!


#8

okie dokie thanks :slight_smile:

That’s from upchuck. He filled me in on how he did his mod. I hope this helps everybody. I tried the mod myself, and it’s not the prettiest thing ever, but it gets the job done.


#10

So will a iL/Happ stick fit in a TE?


#11

Thank you for the update on how upchuck did his thing xix6xix.
Guess the cool way is to do what kowal said.


#12

I think ShinJN covered that in his TE [media=youtube]WJx92C65vBk&feature=related"[/media]. iL/Happ sticks WILL NOT fit unless you do some heavy modding (I think he starts going over that at the 3:20 mark).


#13

Kinda stupid that S-kill lied about American parts fitting in the TE without any mods. That’s the reason I bought mine…


#14

I would get some mdf and extend the base. Basically take the bottom plate and trace it over the mdf and also the plate screw holes. then cut out a square hole in the center of the mdf to accomodate the buttons and paint it black.

If you wanted a IL Comp in there then I would replace the top plate with art hongs plexi and driil to that.


#15

Yeah, it would definitely look better in my opinion, but upchuck’s way got the job done, and it feels fine.


#16

would it help cutting the buttons down? I mean do you need that much thread on that small panel.


#17

Hey, guys. Sorry about not responding to other people’s questions. I wasn’t aware anyone was interested until I got a PM from xix6xix.

xix6xix already posted my advice so I’ll just say this: Putting Happs into your SE is actually pretty painless. A little snip here, a little crimping there… pop those suckers in! Your stick will be left looking a little janky, but I’d prefer comfort(love those concaves) over aesthetics any day.


#18

S-Kill never said anything about that…


#19

When did Seth say that?


#20

If Im not wrong the pushbuttons in the photo are concave, theyre shorter so it fits… The convex are taller.
