Re: Virtual-On Twin-Stick Mapping Guide

Hi, welcome to the forums. IIRC some of this can be found on the forums. I wrote guides for wiring arcade Twin Sticks to Dreamcast and Xbox 360. I'll do some digging. I have most Twin Sticks variations so I can get measurements if I can't dig them up here.

Re: Seimitsu LS-56 to fix TwinStick ?

I think the SS TS shafts are a different diameter that the ones from the DC TS so the LS-56 spring catches won't work. I don't know if the LS-32 spring catches would work, either.

Re: Seimitsu LS-56 to fix TwinStick ?

Can you explain what "this method" is? :) I'm not sure if Fredo will reply. He followed the guide posted above and replaced the spring catch with a washer or half of a metal bobbin. This does work but has two main downsides. First, wear and tear is increased on other parts (metal versus plastic), s...

Re: Saturn to Xbox 360 adapter (Saturn Twin Stick on Xbox)?

What's the order of disassembly? Do I take the grips apart while the base of the stick is still together? I'm guessing that in order to lube the spring catch, I need to remove the e-clips (c-clips?) and the actuator, and then pull the shaft out? You don't need to disassemble anything to apply lube,...

Re: Saturn to Xbox 360 adapter (Saturn Twin Stick on Xbox)?

Do I need to disassemble the grips (I'd rather not, lol, but if you feel they should be lubed I will totally do it), or is the spring catch part of the stick assembly below, like where the square gates are? (below the switches, near the actuators? or is it the Start button?) The spring catch is in ...

Re: Saturn to Xbox 360 adapter (Saturn Twin Stick on Xbox)?

It is pretty straightforward. Look for any plastic that rubs against other plastic and lube both. On the DC TS the weakest link is the spring catch (it's yellow or green, depending on the TS revision, and hard to miss). I would imagine it is similar for the SS TS. The grease can be applied liberally...

Re: Using Twin Sticks on the Xbox One

Nice first post and guide! I wish Microsoft would just support the TSEX on the Xbox One.

Weird, thanks for the heads up. There must be a compatibility issue with that plugin. I've disabled it for now.

Here's an official VGA Box, model HKT-8100, in original box. The current bid is ¥5,500. Unfortunately it is listed as "junk" (untested / as-is).

10 year anniversary!

Hey everyone, I created this forum on December 13, 2008, exactly 10 years ago today!! I started the first thread two days later: Welcome VO fans . The timing was fortuitous, with Xbox 360 VOOT being announced the following February, triggering an influx of activity here. Several Virtual-On ports hav...

Re: Virtual-On in VR with real stereo 3D

Welcome back! Thanks for the details, it sounds promising. Do you have a Rift or Vive to try it out in VR?

I upgraded the forum software and extensions. Unfortunately the style was not compatible with the new version, so I'll have to find a new style to use. (suggestions welcome)

Re: PS4 ports announced!

I wish they would release a PC port. In any case, the announcement says it is download-only, and I would guess Japan-only. How do we buy this in the US?
