    Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    Hi, I'm new to the forums but not to MK lol.

    My question is, since the stick seems to be mod friendly, where is the best place to order parts?

    Like I know it's made by suzo-happ parts, and all I want to do is MAYBE swap out the buttons to give it some color or something like the MK3 arcade machine colors.

    If you could, a link would be appreciated as I've never had a stick before. It seems relatively easy to do though

    Then again, do I really want to risk ruining this beautiful creation...

    Haha your signature is actually what reminded me of MK3 and inspired me to make this thread. I love the buttons.

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    Order from here it's much better

    http://www.lizardlick.com/IL_c_149.html

    I supplied the link to the IL euro sticks. Since they are the true stick used in the original arcades. Several years back Happ dropped the IL made sticks from their line up when they merged with suzo. to make a long story short. Basically, Happ makes a cheaper and not so good version of the IL stick that comes from China instead of out of the UK.

    Edit: as far as buttons go I use these

    http://groovygamegear.com/webstore/i...roducts_id=359

    they have a closer feel and response to the sanwa buttons using the GroovyMicro™ Premium Soft-Touch switch

    Awesome, and which are the correct pushbuttons to order?

    I'm thinking orange buttons <_< I made a rough photoshop and it looks pretty decent.

    Lizardlick is the best place for parts. If you order new parts get IL stick and buttons. They are better than the stock parts.

    these are the buttons i ordered... they will fit in the mk fight stick. im so psyched
    definitely get the il eurostick... its was remodeled to be exactly what was in the original arcades

    **** make sure to get happ buttons, they are a little smaller than what people usually mod madcatz sticks with. snap-in buttons will be too big for the mk te stick. the happ concave buttons are what was in the original arcades... and they come standard in the mk te stick, so make sure you look at the sizes if you choose not to get happ buttons as the holes will be certain sizes on the stick panel

    Alright, thank you.

    What makes the IL stick better? More smooth or ?

    Can't wait, got to decide on some colors now.

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    I use to use Happ buttons but to be honest after getting use to the response of the Japanese made buttons it's hard to go back to Happ. Like I stated before these buttons are amazing and they are the same diameter of the Happ buttons

    http://groovygamegear.com/webstore/i...roducts_id=359

    If you have any questions about them you can usually reach Randy on his web site or on http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/ under the user name RandyT

    plus being interested in Mortal Kombat you might find the forums useful since most of us work on/restore arcades so we know are stuff.

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    Thank you, this is going to be my first stick by the way. I've always preferred American parts though, like the original Arcade cabinents.

    Trying to figure out a matching color scheme is hard haha.

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    the only two differences with the happ and il sticks is that the il has a nylon actuator(which is more responsive on the switches) and it uses cherry switches, which are what were used on the original american panels. plus it has a tighter feel, which i love having with fighting games, makes you feel alot more in control

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    How easy is it to mod these things? I've played plenty of Mortal Kombat games (and just fighting games in general), but it's always just been in arcades or with a controller. I'll be purchasing the TE for the PS3 and am really intrigued by the thought of modding the stick/buttons, but if it's a hassle I'll just stick with the stock parts.

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    I don't know the technical terms, but I assume that these things just have the little metal claws that slide onto the metal bar to go in?

    What I'm saying, is swapping the parts is pretty idiot proof, right? I mean, no soldering or having to wiggle parts into place? I remember when I worked at an arcade buttons were really easy to swap in and out, they just had a plastic nut on the underside that screwed in and held them on....but I don't think I ever had to swap out a stick.

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    right, there's no soldering with this setup. the only thing is once disassembled, you have to make sure you put the connections back in the right spot, or else you'll be in for a s load of trial and error. just make sure to label each wire before disconnecting, thats the easiest way not to f up

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    Soldering is what I was worried about. I definitely think I'll wind up modding my TE stick now though since it sounds like it's pretty much just plug and play.

    Re: Tournament Edition Fight Stick

    I'm only worried that because it's made of wood, and you take out a screw, then put it back in, that it won't be as tight as it came, it will be loose that plastic casing.
