As some of you know I've been stockpiling the parts needed to mod my $25 WWE Brawl stick. The last pieces fell into place on Friday and today I spent way too much time getting it all together.
Results (forgive the flash):
What's in it?
- Sanwa JLF stick
- Sanwa transparent buttons
- Seimitsu clear bubble top
Everything went quite well except for me cutting the holes/edges on the art so there's a bit of roughness there. It's still a million times better than random CG wrestling mens though. Well I guess one other thing went wrong. Initially I hooked up the stick cable upside down which had me wondering why only down was working for a good half an hour.
While I'm happy with the results the actual modding process for the SE type madcatz sticks is still a bit much. Now that I've done it I don't think it's worth the money saved over starting with the more mod friendly TE line. On the other hand the smaller form factor is somewhat rare so if that's what you want there are worse places to start.
Well now that I've gone to all the effort I should give playing on stick another go I guess :)
