I just wanted to share my mod of the NubyTech 15th Anniversary Street Fighter Stick. The thumbs link to bigger versions.
After gutting the original PCB, the XBox/PS2 connector and the XBox memory card jack I got to work.
I picked up a bag of Tie Mounts - 3/4" nylon self-adhesive zip tie mounts. I wanted to go this way because I didn’t want to drill extra holes into the chassis.
I used a body reamer (it’s used to create holes in RC car bodies for mounting) because I didn’t have a drill bit small enough.
I reamed holes into the tie mounts
Here’s the hardware that I used. The black screw came from the Anniversary Stick - it was used to mount the XBox memory card jack. The silver screw came from extra steering servos - they screw the servo arm to the servo horn. It was the only screw that I could find that would fit into the upper left and lower right mount holes in the SIXAXIS PCB. The brass sleeve is also from spare servo hardware.
Here is the PCB attached to the nylon tie mount. The lower right is right next to the right analog control. The upper right one gave me a little scare. The flange on the screw used for the upper left mount hole made contact with one of the capacitors and pushed it aside. I used the brass sleeves to prevent further contact.
Because I can’t see the PCB when the bottom cover is attached, I decided to use an old optical cable to run a fiberoptic power indicator. If you look carefully, you can see the red light at the end of the fiberoptic cable. I hot glued the fiberoptics to the PCB, but in the end I only routed one of the lines out of the chassis because the light from the LED that is on bleeds over to the second fiberoptic cable.
The last three pics are the PCB and AXISdapter mounted and then wired. The buttons and controller are the stock Bao-Lian parts and I’m still waiting for their HAPP replacements. Once those come in, I’ll be able to properly bind the wiring.
Any questions or comments are welcome.
