Rebuilding our knowledge base

Due to the change in the forum software, all of the links in Kyle’s old thread don’t work anymore.

Now seeing as there were a helluva lot of threads listed there and that a) some of those might be obsolete and b) the sheer number of is hard for just one man to find in the new forum. I propose we all pitch in, finding the links to all the relevant threads, both old ones as well as news ones that you believe should be included. Once this is complete, I’ll update Kyle’s post.

Stuff will be categorized under the ff.

It’d be nice if you guys would like to chip in. Otherwise I’ll sort it out once the search field is working.

Got most everything I could find up to the 3rd page. Still can’t find my own thread though.

I be willing to help later on. As I going to work in a half hour.
Also since it be 8 days from when I get my answer from Otakon of my panel is approved or not, it would help to reference from.
I will credit any source I ended up using.

I went back to tthis thread where I made quite a few links, unfortutetly the links were all dead

Same here. I’m about to leave for work.

i will start looking for the following links.

Ultimate Guide To Holding Japanese Balltop Joysticks!
Universal PCB (eventually) thread
The Stick template/Layout thread
Hori Fighting Stick 3 on PC
Official Sanwa mod thread
The IL FAQ/Information thread
Saulabi thread
MadCatz T.E. FightStick Differences.

Note, all the links to arcade stick sites work except for the gremlin one

Thanks for doing this guys! The Gremlin site is coming up fine on my end.

Here are a bunch I’m coming across. I started at page 6. Much <3 to tech talk from the newbie forum.

I went through 50 pages of threads so I don’t think i’ve missed much. I’m having trouble posting the hyperlinks for some reason. Kyle, if you want the word doc with all the links PM me your email. Still couldn’t find the ball top holding thread…like anyone doesn’t know how to hold balls :stuck_out_tongue:

Slow down boys! And would you chaps mind checking each other posts (as well as the OP) so that you don’t put in stuff that’s already been posted.

Okay, thread can’t grow any bigger (1000 character limit) time to either start weeding things out or add a second post with the rest of the links. Anyone care to help compile since I’ll be logging out soon?

lol, maybe you should have spelled out the rules before we started hunting. Starcade RIP and I were very eager to help that we kinda forgot ourselves.

Didn’t know about the limit until now.

Also, I didn’t expect you guys to do that much, that quickly.

That said, I still have to figure out how to make this all fit.
