How could I not actually ever post the way my sticks turned out?!

Alberto did frickin' brilliant work and I feel bad for not showing them off here: https://imgur.com/a/MiimwOm

I never did the Twin Stick setup but mostly because I broke down and bought a VCD-18-C.

OHH Where did you get the 100 Yen sticker in the center?

I too picked up a couple Tanita VCD-18-C's, fantastic Twinsticks!. Working with Alberto on the VO panel to mount on a Blast City CP. planning to use the same Tanita Sticks with a heavier spring.

1. I made an SVG, printed it out on my laser printer, put an adhesive lamination sheet on it, and cut the corners with a rounded corner cutter. It's mostly there to hide all the turbo switches from the original HSS-0136. In a better world I'd put a PS4 Touchpad on it and wire it up to the Brook controller, though I don't think the UFB supports touchpads. Or if I was SUPER adventrous, I'd daisy chain TWO touchpads (or just make a custom LED strip) into an Arduino board and map it to the same analog stick outputs the NWS-230 (Project Diva controller) uses.

2. TWO VCD-18-C's? Truly a man and/or woman of culture.

It was in looking for the SVG that I realized I've basically lost my entire old Windows profile folder, which included a TON of WIP arcade stick art. Just saddened the mess outta me, I shoulda made backups -_-.

HOWEVER, for the love of the game, and because I know Inkscape, I literally just pulled the 100Yen image out of a wiki here - https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Sega_Astro_City

And traced it as an SVG that's 1 inch tall and 8.5 inches wide, so you can cut it as needed - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wKEubk_9E7dlStsJVCzQ17JSz9xH3Kk4/view?usp=sharing

If that link fails you can save this raw text as an SVG file and that should also work. - https://pasteall.org/Zx2n/raw

Also that's a gorgeous family portrait.

BTW, on somewhat of a side note: Is the VCD-18-C casing identical to the old Boardmaster Supergun? I swear it looks the same as the photos but in matte black and without the switch cutouts.

Hi, I am new here. I was wondering if I would be able to request 2 - 6 button control panels for a Sega Blast City?
