Better Late than Never,

I like this one. Simple and accurate. Can't get much better than that.

Updated the OP with what should be the latest teams from the thread.

I also made some minor rules changes/clarifications regarding team order and character switching.

Awesome. If we get two more teams we can have a full eight team bracket.

Also Xomero and I have a name finally :)

nice , planning on modding my hori rap-v3-sa at some point , just not sure on what to use for the deisgn , (mabye next decent sf game will give me an idea if there ever is one again :/)

is there a reason your stick hole (dunno the technical term for it) looks like its a bti bigger and off center than it needs to be ? or is it a loose stick and angled a bit in the photo ?

reason i ask is i have basicly the same buttons and stick as you and im worried about causing it to go loose etc eheh , or is that not even a bad thing (i know the gates are much further than that stick is tilted)

The dustwasher I'm using right now is sized to allow a shaft padding thingy which I have opted not to use (though I have two incase I ever want to). Since the dustwasher's hole is larger than it needs to be it may give the illusion that the stick itself is off center, but it has nothing to do with the restrictor gate which is inside the stick itself.

I remember hearing modding RAPs is a pain in the ass so good luck >_<

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
  • Aigis

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 :)

@gravitypenguin: Question: Can we change who goes first in a team from match to match or is it a constant?

For now I'm going to say static order for the whole tournament so choose wisely. My reasoning is order switching could cause confusion if the players aren't in irc or voice chat since they'd need to pass to facilitate the switch.

I'll team with anyone as it comes to it, but my priority targets are aznjon, xomero, and grim-2 in no particular order :)
