Not so much actual sticks. It's just stick art for future sticks that I might want to get and mod. These are only for TE Full Sticks:

Necro-ing because valid questions apart from a little showcase.

I've been thinking of modding my stick to dual-mod (Tekken 6 wireless), but there was also this option of buying an eightarc or qanba Q4 at close to the same price. I've calculated that grabbing a PS360+ PCB, $4~ clear buttons (Senwa v Seimitsu question incoming), new microswitches, and a Sanwa JLF, it would almost be the same price as buying a full stick. However, I can "trickle" my mod parts, upgrading the stick slowly until it's complete. I can't do that with buying a replacement stick.

Now that we have that overview, QUESTION TIME:
1) Mod vs the two options. Does anyone have any experience with at least the Qanba Q4? It's the cheapest one on offer that has dual-mod. I've read somewhere that they're prone to breaking down easier than many other sticks at its price range.

2) Senwa vs Seimitsu buttons. I tend to graze over buttons when I play, and when I input, it's not a snappy push, it's me throwing down the gauntlet (or at least a giant finger) onto the button. Which one of these is snappier and less sensitive to light accidental inputs?

3) On both of these buttons for the clear/translucent ones, what's the inner diameter of the plunger where you can put art inserts? I've seen unconfirmed numbers thrown in like 22mm for the 30mm buttons, or approximations like a dime for the 24mm and a nickel for the 30mm, but I need hard numbers because everything will be sent to a print shop for higher-quality printing.



On that note, I've been working on some art for this stick. Just a note, there's a reason I have #iDOLSPORTS on my forum title. It's a little group a bunch of FGC friends made about a year ago, maybe two now, playing iDOLM@STER 2. Because most of us were big fans of iDOLM@STER (and now Love Live! and Aikatsu, too), during a stream we had been jokingly (maybe half-jokingly for some) going about how iM@S was going to be an eSports title because LOLWECANDREAM, and we effectively coined the twitter hashtag that actually trended during that long stream on Twitch. The person who streamed, @ChunandRice, even went as far as putting up an #iDOLSPORTS panel I believe back in Fanime in San Jose.

So behold! My Neo Maximum Love Live School Idol Fighting Stick Project!
The numbers in the circle indicate PC input according to the Game Controller Settings > Properties window (Buttons 1-10). Select/Back is 7, and Start is 8. Also, the buttons and the various holes are guides, and will not be in the actual printout.





Here's the proof-of-concept. Used an alternate button art option, but really this was meant to check for sizes and fits. Looks like I'll have to scale down the buttons.

1. Qanba Q4 is an alright stick, just take good care of it and it'll take good care of you.

2. Seimitsu sounds like the prime choice you'd want.

I dunno about 3.

Also you should be smacked for having that kind of artwork slapped on a stick.

Yeah I have a HRAP1 (Version B) and a HRAP2, great sticks. I'm not a fan of the new HRAP "V3", so little wrist room.

nice, I still need a 1B among others that I really want like the 2SA. I don't really mind the V3 and I think the angled palm area is actually comfortable for my hands, but the likeness of the Astro panel and general class of the first gen HRAPs are what make them for me. Timeless design. The ones without hex bolts are a straight bitch to mod, though.

Decided to make the switch to stick, whipped up some stick art I had in mind.

I figure I'll make my stick so sick, I'll find it impossible to quit and go back to pad.

New art (somewhat new) and new dust washers for my arcade sticks:

Kyo stick art:

I will post actual sticks when I'm finished later.

Edit: Oh crap... The kyo stick art has an error. Oh well. I'll deal with it for now.
