Stick project update


I got the first few parts for my stick in today - one pink bubbletop and 6 clear violet Seimitsu snap-in buttons. When an arcade stick features clear pink and purple, you know it's manly. In all seriousness, I have a PS2 extension cable, .110 quick disconnects and an MC Cthulhu on the way. The art is designed and ready to be printed and pasted onto the stick. I've decided to keep the casing white. With the colors of the art, black would make the stick seem too dark.

I need to go to Radio Shack to get a wire stripper/crimper, a soldering gun, solder and 30 AWG wire. I don't have any clue what AWG 30 wire is and that is somewhat intimidating. I'm really excited to actually build my own stick but also kind of terrified. Once everything is here, I'll begin in earnest and see how far I can take this thing. The only part I haven't figured out is whether I should make the stick PS2 only or run 2 cables out of the case so that it will work with PS3 and PS2.

About nilcamone of us since 9:53 AM on 01.31.2007

Old-school gamer. I started gaming with the Atari 2600. I became an addict with the arcade release of Street Fighter II at my college. The SNES release pushed me into buying that system and a lame arcade stick. I haven't looked back since then. I still consider the 16-bit to be the Golden Age of gaming. The current generation is keeping me pretty happy, especially with the fighting game renaissance that's happening lately. And, yes, I'm old.
