This is saddening news. I had a MAS stick in early 2000 to go along with my supergun. It was superbly built with quality workmanship. They will be missed.

damn. sad news. absolutely wanted a MAS back in the day.
I'm getting more and more concerned for house fires with so many lithium batteries tucked away in closets. I know someone in the RC hobby lost their house that way.

Had a pair of their neo mvs cab themed sticks for my kpj component modded aes waaaay back in the day, on a 32” sony trinitron. Was a slick setup. Really loved those sticks, something lovely about nicely broken in american controls. Really fucked for anyone to pass like that. RIP.

I stick with 90s battery tech for this reason in my RC cars. Also, no real cars with Lithium batteries in my garage ever ever ever. Once you’ve seen an electric car burst into flames and burn for a day your understanding of “eco” levels up.

Damn, i never got around to getting one of their sticks. I'll have to see if i can grab one second hand though now there will be more demand for them. May they rest in peace. I too will donate to their gofundme.

never miss a chance to capitalize on a death, friends or otherwise
You guys never miss a chance to twist my words. This has nothing to do with the sticks, although id like one. I dont like to hear about good people dying in that manner, its extremely heartbreaking.

Whatever though, you guys always make your own narrative for your shits and giggles.

it's not twisting your word. unlike, maybe, some other people i don't think you intend things to be taken the way they are. but i do think you lack the ability to sense when certain talking points should not be made based on the context of a conversation. the mentioning about how the secondhand market for MAS products were going to go up did not have to be and should not have been made. i hope you are able to see how avoiding these unnecessary comments would save you a whole lot of heartache here.

Well the stuff has been around for 25+ years and only when they die and the “demand” (from other ghouls like you) increases do you want one. If you don’t want people to comment on that you should maybe think twice before you...do anything.

You're all right. I stuck my foot in my mouth and for that im sorry. Im not a horrible person, and i dont want to detract from how sad and upsetting that these two very good and kind individuals died. I need to watch how i say things, but my intention was not to minimize their deaths.

Sorry man, i'm a very pacific type person. Fighting unless absolutely nescessary is not my thing.
What do you mean? People from the Pacific are usually very aggressive, especially when they drink. Ever got on the cans with a Samoan?

Wow - what an incredibly sad piece of news. Thao was a one and only original pioneer in the arcade world of "makers". His engineering and inventiveness was something I really respect.

Everyone here will mention his arcade sticks (the best of their time by far), but I rank his most impressive achievement to be the first person in the world to convert MVS carts. I spoke with him many times in the early years, and always looked forward to what their next project would bring.

Condolences to their loved ones.

That's tragic. If only you held onto it, you could have made a profit now that there is more of a demand for them 😔

Pretty shitty time to make a joke. I don't like selling my shit anymore unless I have extras or I need to clear space. Back when I had the stick I was fresh out of college and I was moving a lot.

When did you start becoming a dick head?
