We had both at the last gathering when we had a Karnovs Revenge tourney. Dont waste your money on the Brook adapter. I love brook but the Undamned db15 is so much easier to use and way more versatile since you can use it on superguns and what not.

We were playing Karnovs so if you want a standard 2 x 2 setup you have to do all this weird stuff to get it configured. Undamned just hold the 3 punch buttons when plugging it in, hold until light flashes then hit the buttons you want to config.
For example
Karnovs/Neo Game you would hit in this order what buttons you want to be A, B, C, D

for a capcom fighter you will hit the buttons in this order LP,MP,HP,LK,MK,HK


Both dont hold your setting when you unplug, so anytime somebody wanted to use their stick with the brook took forever to configure. Then we just picked the stick everyone could agree to and made that the stick that is used on player 2 side with brook adapter. It was a headache. I luckily I had brought my undamned, ordered another one so that will never happen again

Damn, that sounds way easier. I remember sitting there for a half-hour punching in weird button combos on two sticks just to play Last Blade with a decent config. And it would default the settings after a reset!

Exactly, using undamned and a new player/stick average time to config is 5 seconds lol

Finally finished a personal mod ive been holding off on due to life. Did a custom ls40 install on this bad boy. I had to mod the ls40 shaft and a jlf extender to get proper mounting height. Also had to drill original mounting plate and secure stick with longs screws. That was the hardest part of this mod. The second being that there isnt much space inside these sticks to work with.
For those that may not know, Sanwa JLF is the only stick that mounts up correctly in this case, it was made for the jlf. Ive installed a LS56 for Razo and now a LS40 for myself.

Sega Virtua Stick High Grade
-LS40 joystick
-Custom shaft/extender MOD
-LS38 spring
-Kori Smoke Balltop
-PS14G / PS14DNK buttons
-Dyed top buttons
-Brooks UFB/MC Chuthlu Boards
-Neutrik Jacks

I have the special Edition Madcatz Street Fighter x Tekken developed by Daigo one. I think Razer makes good sticks. I feel right now it's all about Qanba. I do like the Hori Vewlix, amazing amazing. Still I am a pad player. I am glad that pad players are not frowned upon these days.

I finally got around to installing the new buttons, blanks and balltop I’ve had sat here into my HRAP4 Kai... This is my main stick I use for PS3, Supergun and Neo•Geo via a Brook adapter.

just a dreamcast joystick and a logic3 arcade stick for psx.
buttons nowhere near as smooth as the dc tombstone joystick. :D
plus an old 3button w/rapid buttons saitek for megadrive/amiga/atariST.

This has been my #1 lately, before getting the Neo Geo:

Not looking to win EVO, I just prefer the American style.

Since the Neo Geo is so new to me, I've just been sticking to the stock AES stick, I have to say I like it a lot.

Haven't seen a MAS for a long time - and I haven't used a bat-top arcade stick in aeons; would be nice to try though, I might mod one up in the near future.

I just rebuilt / re-wired this thing with some Sanwa OBSF24's - horrible wiring job though, will use quick-disconnects next time.

Can't post a pic but I recently built a rotary stick out of a Sigma TB9000. I raised the whole enclosure up about 2 1/4" to clear the large rotary sensor on the bottom. Made the raised enclosure panels out of 1/8" thick aluminum, added a male DB-15 for the rotary kick harness. Used stainless steel M3 button hex head bolts all around. Turned out really nice wish I could post some pics of it, goddamn photobucket p.o.s.

MAS stick is awesome! I had one...almost 20 years ago. Should have hung on to it, they are the closest you can get to playing on actual arcade cabinet. Just don't drop it on your foot.

Nice, they look like Seimitsu buttons. How are the OBSF24's?

just a bunch of old style sticks. Never use the control pad anymore. Not since the early 2000s.

Beckett - I tried Seimitsu's but they seemed to only press when you got them dead-center and were a bit fudgy if you caught the edge, so I sent em back. No problem with the OBSF24's - they're nice and responsive. I added the GOTW octogate from Jamma Nation X on one stick to try it out... I think I have to get used to it though... I'm so used to square-gates after all these years, feels very odd.

What I like best about Seimitsus is that you can hover over them and not activate them. I like to rest my index finger on A, middle on B, ring on C ,and thumb on D.

Also square gate 4 lyfe

Does anyone have any experience with either a Hitbox or Mixbox controller? I’m thinking I’d probably get on better with the Mixbox... thoughts please.
