Project Magenta 2017


#304

You can solder or use what is known as a Dupont connector for the power. Paradise ships Magenta with a JST connector but you can remove the plastic JST housing and slide the pins over the male Dupont connector in the Razer. (Search back to your last post in this thread.)

I have one custom extra long Panthera connector available for sale to anyone who needs it.

Finally, the problem comes from the magenta stick.
I am waiting for their news to regularize the situation


#306

Since there were no issues with the Siren installs at CEO, I am releasing the very last spare units I was holding in reserve. If anyone wants one of the remote/external mode switches for the Magenta send me a private message. When these last few are gone they are gone!

Is anything like this available for american parts? Optical pcbs for existing P360s would be a dream come true.


#308

Nope, and doubt there ever will be. The market is tiny for American parts unfortunately


#309

So are there any step by step guides for a Panthera installation? Wanna know I wont fuck it yup before dropping $100.


#310

To this day, MvC2 doesn’t feel right on anything besides a Happ Comp or P360. iL makes a great Competition stick.

I had to migrate over tho. With practice my FF UF combos and pressure got worlds better. Japanese levers take more finesse but they’re a lot faster and more accurate IMO.


#311

I posted a photo up above. It’s not hard.


#312

Theres already wires in that spot on the pcb, safe to take those out?


#313

@Pablo_the_Mex - American style is replacing the ball top on the JLF with a bat top right???

@butteroj - American fighstick parts are a secret fetish in Japan!

@Penguin93

Sounds like you are not comfortable modifying a fighstick so your best bet is to contact a local moder to help you with the installation.

If you still want to try it yourself, I suggest posting pictures of what you have and explain how you want it connected. Include any special requirements like “I can’t solder”, etc. You’re bound to get more help from the community that way than posting the same comments every couple of weeks.


#315

You need to take a photo as there shouldn’t be any wires going there. That is a secondary on the PCB. The prongs you are looking for should be to the right of the wires that are connected.


#316

I see the 5 prongs on the right but the usb wires are running through the other side compared to the above photo, feels like a bit of a risk to be soldering that close to them. Is it possible to use the 5 pins on the left?


#317

Those wires should not be going through those prongs touching like that. Try to pull them out and move them to the left so those wires are free from the prongs (if you see any exposed wire wrap some electric tape around it). Solder free option: Take the JST Connector that came with the magenta to power it and disassemble the two heads from their case. You can then use those two heads to slide onto the prongs, but use something like a coffee straw to put over the wires just in case the prongs moves in transport (mine held pretty firm after I got them on their right), because if they touch another prong it could short out your stick.

Thanks for the help


#319

I had access to the Panthera briefly this afternoon but did not have a meter to check power. I did snag some photos and there are a number of headers on there that may do exactly the same thing. Sooner or later the planets will align and I will have everything needed to better document the Panthera pcb even if it is on the show floor at EVO!


#320

What’s the size of the screw and washer? I need to get a replacement


#321

You need to hit up arcade paradise for that. Pretty sure you have to get a new one from them. I know they have more magnets (that’s the washer), but not sure about the screw.


#322

If you are attending EVO in Las Vegas this weekend, Paradise will have spare parts in their booth on the convention floor. Otherwise, contact Paradise Arcade support and they can arrange to send out replacements but do it quickly because they will be closed while attending EVO.


#323

Thanks. I made a ticket on their site, hopefully they can get to it before EVO.
