Bunker Party 2007-09-21: The part where Pottse sprays blood all over the place

So I’m chillin playing Ricochet Robots, or Turbo Taxi, or something, and Pottse comes limping in with his feet wrapped in toilet paper. Somehow, he managed to slice one of his feeties open on one of the Cobalt Fluxi. (Could this be revenge for me talking so much trash about it lately?)

Unfortunately, like all my crappy pictures, it didn’t come out quite like it did in real life, which was… like, totally gross, thick, and weirdly fluorescent…WTF?

Pottse's Blood... so... flourescent?

Anyway, we took 15 and whipped out the Oxi Clean(which really does work, btw.)

Cobalt Flux 360… Success!

2 pads in the light

I’ve done it, two Cobalt Flux pads with 360 control boxes. It wasn’t cheap, but I’m a sucker for HD output (and Xbox Live Achievements, even though I totally suck at DDR).

In the end, all you really need is a soldering iron and solder, a screwdriver, a short length of Cat5 networking cable, a Male 9-pin D-sub connector (276-1537 at Radio Shack), and a MadCatz Beat Pad.

Here’s how it’s done:

Take out all of the external screws on the white plastic shell, and open it up. Try to disturb as little as possible as you do this.

DDR 360! Unsuck the Flux

Look closely, there’s a pad in the darkness!

I’ve already complained about how Cobalt Flux has hozed the DDR action two Bunker Parties in a row.

But, I’ve decided that I am not going to be a victim! I am going to take my life back!

Since the control box on one of my CF pads is shot, I am going to replace it by hacking together a 360 Control Box.

Unfortunately, this means sacrificing an existing 360 dance pad. In this case, it will be a MadCatz Beat Pad.
