I started off making custom sticks with Happ and Sanwa parts. I prefer Happ as I grew up with it but I think I will order some octagon gates to help change my mind. Anyways… I picked up a Blaze Twin Shock Arcade stick recently I always wanted a twin stick since the early gaming days but couldn’t afford it. Now I got my chance (even though the stick is not that expensive…Just RARE!!)
I saw some members do some crazy stuff here and some were quite amazing. I just wated to make it more lively but do as little work as possible. I did not want to fabricate any add ons etc. Just stock with sanwa parts and new art. So here we go…let me know what you guys think! Oh sorry for the poor quality…dam iphone!
Here is the bone stock stick all gutted and shown with Sanwa OBSF-24 buttons.
Now the same case with new art!
Not too shaby! Art was done with 2 11x17 printouts and some glue and a exacto knife
Now lamenated BLAZBLUE art
All wired up…buttons, stick and PCB **had to bend the quick connects as it will not clear the shallow case
Bottom view **Note had to cut 2 holes for JLF to clear the bottom. Added feet as it works like a charm on a flat surface. hehe easier to change the ball tops.
That my friends was my version of a “Blaze Blue” Blazblue-themed twin shock joystick.
2 x JLF-TP-8Y (no mounting plate used as it will NOT clear bottom of case)
16 x Sanwa OBSF-30 Pushbutton
10 x Sanwa OBSF-24 Pushbutton
Now for some of my other custom sticks
