Hori Real Arcade Pro EX-SE internals - soldering or not?


#1

I tried searching the Tech Talk threads for this, but I think the information is buried too far. Are the parts in the EX-SE stick easily changeable like the MadCatz TE stick or does the EX-SE have soldered parts? Sorry for the bother as I’m sure it’s been discussed before somewhere. -_-

All HRAPs use quick disconnects, so yes. Also, search better next time.


#3

Thank MiniFoo. I’ll try searching with more keywords next time before I post.


#4

The joystick is soldered in and the buttons have quick disconnects,

Thanks. I found the HRAP EX-SE thread via Google (!).

I’ll go read for information there. Thanks for the help!

I’m sure I’ve modded at least HRAP version before that had the buttons directly soldered to a PCB. I know this because I kept the buttons, and they are blatantly HORI by design… aside from that, I have no other evidence.

Not all HRAP have Quick Disconnect.

The Game Licensed ones are known to have Buttons soldered to PCB.
There are a few that have Quick Disconnect though.

PlayStation 2 with Game License and soldered Buttons
HRAP Soulcalibur III
HRAP Tekken 5
HRAP Arcana Heart
HRAP Suggoi! Arcana Heart 2
HRAP Fate/unlimited codes

PlayStation 3 with Game License and soldered Buttons
HRAP Street Fighter IV
HRAP BlazBlue

But all other HRAP have Quick Disconnect.

PlayStation 2 with Game License and Quick Disconnect
HRAP Capcom Fighting Jam

PlayStation 3 with Game License and Quick Disconnect
HRAP Tekken 6

Xbox 360 with Game License and Quick Disconnect
HRAP Deathsmiles
HRAP Mushihimesama Futari

Hyper Stick PRO Otomedius Gorgeous Ver.

Yes, that means all the non-Game License HRAP have Quick Disconnect.
Do I have to list those too?
