My Dai-Fukkatsu stick. Now BLACK LABEL Edition.
« on: February 21, 2010, 07:35:57 AM »
My Dai-Fukkatsu stick.

UPDATE: Scroll down to see the BLACK LABEL Edition.

Modded Madcatz TE with modded Suzo 500 joystick. (Extremely responsive, got better in Futari just by switching to this stick  =D )
Art done in photoshop and then laminated and glued.

Thanks to Emphatic and RetroSteff for helping with the custom shaft.
Thanks to MegaElixir for the cave combat picture.













UPDATE: Scroll down to see the BLACK LABEL Edition.

Good job! I thought it was legit. ha ha.

How much time did you invest into that?

Because if you made more, people would buy.

Wow, say...two months waiting for parts.  :P
Building it I would say 2-3 days.

wow, that shaft looks extremely long/high. Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is it longer than usual?

I've looked that over a few times today.  I loved it when I first saw it, and it's still growing on me!   :righton:

Yeah, it's like a mile long. Looks pretty uncomfortable when you're used to LS-32's shaft! :righton:

It looks longer on the pics but yes, it is a bit longer than a LS-32.
Im planning to lower it in the future, an hours work and it should be done.  :)

I have quite big hands so for me it feels quite comfortable right now.

Lovely!
How did you build the art? I mean is a new panel or you had to mod the original?
Damn, now my SFIV TE seems so ugly!

Art was done in photoshop from 28 different pictures...so it was alot of hunting CAVE DFK high res art.
The element daughter shadows are the character art from the DFK homepage.
Then I printed the pic on glossy paper, laminated it and put some very thin doublesided adhesive tape to fit it on the TE metal plate. Then just cut the holes with a knife.

That is one of the best stick mods I've ever seen - both parts and aesthetics look the business. Hats off, sir.

WOW, SUPA COOOL, when they port Daifukatsu you can send this to HORI so that they can clone it for a similar version.

Fantastic!The leds thingy is pure sex!
I'm sure you can do more by including a jingle when you put a direction  =D

The new dustwasher and led buttons are fantastic but the direction leds are ruining the perfection, in my opinion.

Yeah, from my perspective the directive leds was the perfection cos the stick got so lonely when the buttons got all the bling.  :)

^^This. I just love my SUZO 500, and even more now that I got some better switches (OMRON ones from Akihabarashop). I just put some electrical tape on mine as a spacer, so now my 500 is better calibrated than before. :D

Definitely the best custom shmup stick I have seen. Good work. I'd love to try one of those Suzo 500's after you guys hype it up so much.  :)

What would you charge to hook one of these up?
