My button mod made my Key 5 a little odd but then I found out I was whacking the very frong of the key, doing nothing. However, I think I messed up the slipmat mod in my turntable. It seems like I put the items in backwards. I recall it should go blue tray - slipmat - plastic donut - the other slipmat - the other plastic donut - turntable top and then you screw it all back together. I think I did blue tray - plastic donut - slipmat - the other plastic donut - the other slipmat - turntable top. Will this make a difference or should I turn it back around? I'm scared to try play IIDX now that I think I did it wrong dry.gif

You should just open it up if it's not an ASC. I put in an extra sheet so it's sheet-plastic-sheet-plastic-sheet-plastic-sheet; yes the ASC has 3 plastic rings and not 2 (as well as 2 skinnier rings on the outer edge) but it's just extra slippery (I don't want to open it up again, there's so many screws) but it works fine.

This isn't actually a mod but, it semi is so, I post here anyway.

Well after playing IIDX for some time my buttons had scratches on them. They kinda looked ugly, so I decided to write on it. After playing with writing on it, the ink from the marker began to run, so I used some nail polish remover to take off the ink. Not only did the ink come off, but so did a layer of the buttons came off. Instead of looking all shiny, my buttons now look like wood. Even weirder is that combined with the cardboard mod, my buttons don't stick at all anymore.

You could be onto something there. Use nail polish to remove the paint from your keys. Because without paint, maybe they won't stick as much? Or maybe the key won't 'hold' onto dirt? It isn't quite reverseable, but it is reverseable in a way.

I don't think the keys are painted... I think they have plastic on them.

Wait, plastic *on* them? I thought the keys in the KOC were solid, molded, pieces of plastic? So you're saying that they're not painted, and that the plastic is always that color?

When I said layer I meant the shiny top of the key. It seemed to come off when I rubbed it with the nail polish remover, so now it's just smooth and . . . not shiny. Feels more like wood now. I'll see if I can take a pic.

What's the magnet mod? I've seen some people talking about it around here but no one ever explains what it is.

Magnet... no. That sounds like it could be nothing but trouble.

It's the same as the cardboard circles mod, but with a refridgerator magnet. tongue.gif

on the song select screen, simply rotate the turntable clockwise or counter-clockwise directly past innocent walls.

Take both hands off the controller. Hold my arms out straight infront of me (zombie style). Extend middle fingers.
For best experience, keep middle fingers parallel and turned upright.

Oh and in othernews, there's no guarantee of the ASC not sticking. I'm going to have to perform an operation on it sometime before I play again.

I posted this on the Cobalt Flux forums so I'll just copy and paste it in here:

A few weeks ago I cleaned the keys and stuff, put new cardboard in etc., and after like 2 weeks key 4 starts sticking. I opened it up, cleaned it out and put everthing back together again, and it was all fine and dandy. A week passes and the 5 key (the key my thumb hits) starts feeling weird... it doesn't start sticking but it becomes stiffer and jackhammers become difficult. I clean out just that key and everything is fine. That was yesterday. Now key 4 stuck on me twice whille playing Charlotte another, but it hasn't done it again so I'm kind of puzzled. How long does the controller work for you guys before you have to clean it out and "unstick" the keys again? My friend said that he's only had to do it three times over the course of one year and he plays stuff like Photongenic Another and One or Eight 7K, so I'm pretty sure I'm not slamming it too hard. Yeah I play like 3 hours a day but still it shouldn't happen this quickly.

Also, I really hate opening up my controller and I suck with anything electronic, my hands are really shaky so I easily screw stuff up. I hate sticky keys with a passion though, and I'm thinking about shaving the keys. If done correctly does it really eliminate sticky keys for good? If so I'll be so happy, 'cause if my controller keeps doing this I'd be willing to buy a Desktop ASC or Ransai if that puts an end to sticky keys.

I don't think shaving your controller helps much, if at all. My KOC before it turned into an ASC was fully modded with the cardboard and was shaved badly, but to no avail. It would stick everyday no matter how much I cleaned it.

however, for me, befor my controller circuit board broke, I shaved my keys and they never stuck again. Granted, I had to reshave them a few times to get them all away from sticking to the black plastic border, but I went for about half a year straight without a single key sticking before I wore the sensor out.

honestly?
I slam the keys like a madman =(
broke two KOC's =/ which is why I'm making my own controller now heh. I can't afford to keep breaking these little plastic pieces of crap =/
I play IIDX like I used to play DDR
on DDR I picked up a habit of slamming my feet down on the arrows; It really helped with my timing.
Same for IIDX. Especially learning to use my right thumb better (I started out playing thumbless, so now my thumb is kinda weak compared to my other fingers), if I'm playing something like e-motion 2003 (non-random), then the only way I can hit the notes ACCURATELY is if I put some muscle into it, so I can feel like I'm emphasizing every single 16th note. Plus, it builds muscle strength so I can pass stupid stuff later on that's on 10th and 11th style as they come out. AND it's more fun than being a sissy and pressing the keys lightly.
=D
