For those of you specifically searching for how to Modify the Xbox Hori Tekken 6 Wireless Fightstick
Here is my first modified stick. My goal was to have a wireless, power controlled switchable 4 to 8 way directional fight stick, so I used an Xbox Hori Tekken 6 Wireless Fightstick as my base. Got all my parts from ebay, focus attack and Ultimarc and then I had to figure out how to modify the case to get everything to fit properly. The final product came out exactly as I had hoped. This joystick is perfect for switching between my favorite games like Donkey Kong and Street Fighter. Anyhow, Hope you guys enjoy. Please give me some feedback.
Here’s a list of the parts I used
- Ultimarc ServoStik - Powered 4 to 8 Way Switching (Sanwa JLW)
- Sanwa OBSC-30 Translucent 30mm and 24mm Buttons
- L298N Dual H Bridge DC Stepper Motor Controller
- Three-Way Toggle Switch
- Two-Way Toggle Switch
- 9V Battery
I Attached the JLW stick by removing the base plate that came with the joystick, and simply mounting it directly to the Hori Joystick Metal Base Plate
Here’s the innards, The inside of the stick is very crowded with little to no extra room. The added Stepper Motor, Servo, and 9V Battery take up a lot of space, so I had to improvise and try out a few different configurations. Here is the final result. I had to put the stepper motor on a piece of cardboard that flips up as this was the only configuration that would fit inside the controller. I used 3M tape to mount the cardboard to the case and screwed the Stepper Motor into the cardboard.

Here is a side shot of the toggle switches I have installed to control the servo. You simply flip the switch up for 8 way direction or down for 4 way direction. Push the button to activate the servo.
Also a very great modification was to add some rubber feet to prevent the controller from slipping. So I bought these stick-on rubber pads from Lowes
