Memes aside does this look it's worth $60?
Not really because if you actually find out you enjoy fighting games enough to care your going to want to spend the money upgrading it with better parts when you could just get a decent stick for an extra 40-80$
Never watched wrestling, but Triple H had the coolest song though. But what exactly makes a good fightstick so I can avoid making these shit threads every day. Or do you just kinda know from experience what would feel good and what wouldn't
You talking about a dualshock controller son? I've got them both but fightsticks just feel really good to me, and I love they sound they make
The only resale site that I know of in nz only has used shit tier sticks and overpriced trash
I remember you from the thread yesterday.
If you really cant find anything else at a reasonable price I guess you could go for this one.
This used to be the budget stick for everybody back then.
People bought it, threw away the buttons and sticks and got some proper ones, as modding it seems easy.
Dunno how good the stock buttons on this one are.
Are there any places that sell stick parts in NZ?
Hitboxes are one huge meme.
Exactly how? You don't even move your hand with it, just tap buttons. Dashes, IADs, dp, hcf is much faster and precise with it. Plus you don't spend nearly as much time getting used to it as you do with stick.
Not OP, but was looking at getting into SF and getting a fightstick soon, is $100 for a Hori VX SA a good deal?
OP, no BS, what makes a fightstick good or not depends mostly on the stick and buttons themselves.
By this I mean any stick with authentic Sanwa or Seimitsu parts is a quality stick that will last basically forever.
The one you posted in the OP has shit Madcatz parts. Madcatz sticks ARE great, but only if you're buying the Tournament Edition sticks, because like I said above, they use Sanwa sticks and buttons, Madcatz just makes the PCBs and the case.
Your best option is to either get one of those, or get the one you posted and swap the buttons and stick out yourself with either Sanwa or Seimitsu parts you can buy online.
So I should probably just stick with my chinese fightstick for now until I can get some quality shit yeah? Pic related is my current one, and the diagonal inputs are super awkward
As a MK player, I always wanted one.
It's perfect for that game, but I also play everything else on the side, and I don't think I would like it for SF or Tekken, or even anime.
I have this one. It's okay. I bought it for WWE All Stars and I don't play Street Fighter or anything. But I imagine those guys would say this is a lower-tier stick. You should probably get a better one. Though that one is okay if you use it for emulation.
Pretty much maybe look into modding your current stick if you want buttons + stick should only cost 50 (in the US not sure about NZ) and you can always use them in another stick down the road
If it's your first stick and you don't plan on playing games on PS4, it's a good choice if you plan to mod it. Out of the box mine came with 2 busted buttons. I put seimetsu buttons and a sanwa joystick in it. Pic related.
I never played fighting games or played on a stick before getting AE on PC took me 40~ hours of casual play not to suck at DP's my fingers were too retarded to do FADC shit consistently for months
Sick i'll check that out
Is that blazblue, looks cash
Can't believe I actuall didn't think of this, how hard is it to change gates on these? I've always wanted to see how other gates felt, I've currently got square gate
Square gate is best gate tbqh. Unless you're playing Tekken, I think those weird fuckers use circle gates or some shit (the few who don't play on pad anyway).
Honestly though you should work on not hitting the gate at all. Since it's a digital input, smaller movements = less travel time = faster and more precise inputs in general.
Now that I'm looking at the stick and wires it's pretty intimidating, It's not that hard to put it all together right?
Not Japanese ones. Squares yo.
Well in the words of the ever-wise Gootecks, pretend you're a tiny Asian boy playing Street Fighter at 3 in the morning on a school night, and if you're too noisy with the stick you're gonna wake up your Mom and she's gonna beat that ass.
No it doesn't look that good desu.
If you're on a budget or don't want to spend a lot of money on a fightstick, then get this one once it comes out
If you're serious about fightan and don't care about the price and want the ability to change parts out later if you want, then get this one
These can also be used on PC.
It's literally plug and play in the case of buttons. Stick is just a swap and a plug as well. The only "hard" modding comes when you want to switch PCB's which just requires super basic soldering.
All those wires are already installed in your stick Anon. Just unplug them, and then make sure you don't mix up the colors when you're reversing the process. And most sticks these days use quick disconnects anyway, so it's literally just sliding them on and off of the tabs on the buttons / stick.
It's super easy.
I have had one for at least three years now, and all I've had to do to it was replace the buttons for about twenty bucks. You might want to replace the stick too, but I haven't. It didn't go bad on me and it's not shit. The buttons are really the weakest point.
Is this a good choice? I am on the fence of getting it. I want a stick with good parts in it and it needs to work on PC. However I also have a ps4 so it needs to work on both.
I bought an HRAP 4 the other day for $100, it's a pretty "standard" high end stick but that also means that it's pretty damn good. It uses different buttons/sticks than Madcatz TE's, and the buttons are actually highly sensitive. I prefer the stick though and buttons are only $2-3 a pop to change. Very much worth it. It's also roomy as fuck.
Anyone here use silent buttons? Was thinking of picking some up.
I use the kai, it's fine. People were complaining about kuro buttons but I don't think they are that bad, just feel kinda weird.
The writing say "Futuresky Joystick-MH-6" then some gook shit but there's a website too and a listing on trademe if you just search arcade stick
The website is "www.Yaogan.com"
Ive been thinking of getting an arcade stick ever since i got into skullgirls. i use a DS3 right now but still have trouble with DP's.
was looking at this one
it says it uses sanwa buttons and stick. what do you think /v/? im a little bummed that it wont work on ps4, but im planning to be playing SFV on PC anyway.
If you plan to play SFV at local tourneys, you should really get a PS4 stick. If you are tech savvy, you can make one yourself for pretty cheap now. If you don't want a PS4 stick, that one works fine, but 130 is too expensive. You can easily buy a good condition used on ebay these days because people are switching to PS4
>keep trying to make the best decal for stick
>replace art like 4 times
>say fuxk it and paint thr face black and your 4 pink buttons (lp mp hp lk) and pink balltop look slick
Better than expected
Unused stick art you say? I know that feel quite well.
Eventually I settled on this cause ultimate was coming out and I was running out of time and ideas. It's not bad imo but it's kind of plain.
It looks a bit too chaotic with all the characters, the plain Virgil one was the best you've posted so far senpai. Are you planning on reskinning any time soon or are you gonna stick with that?
I've been thinking about changing it for SFV. But I dread re-entering stick art hell. The only thing I'm really leaning toward though is maybe a Karin theme?
Got no ideas though.
Yeah. It's either going to be Karin or Mika, I'm leaning toward Karin more though. But who knows maybe the DLC will come out and I switch to motherfucking Alex.
That's the pitfall with themeing your stick around one character I guess.
I use photoshop since that's what I learned to use in highschool. I've always wanted to try out gimp though so I don't have to go through the hassle of
piratingPS. Is it good? I'm not exactly professional level, but I do need a full-featured program. Paint with some extra bells and whistles ain't gonna cut it. (Not saying that's what Gimp is, since I haven't really looked at it. Just in general.)
I live in New Zealand, where you aren't allowed to have a hobby that won't benefit the community. Which is the entire reason I made the thread. fun fact, triple A games here cost $120-140 on release
Both. You don't want shit buttons sticking or not registering your inputs or wearing out on you.
Also different buttons have different travel and clickiness and some people prefer some over others.
its most of the time cheaper to buy a cheap stick and mod them later with good parts. That gives a base and pcb to work with, and you can get good sanwa parts of the colour you like.
I had a cheap mayflash and did exactly what I described above. First I played till the "normal" buttons broke down after a few months and changed them with sanwa parts. These I have for years now and still work just as new.
Thats not even going into the whole customize and art shit. (I dont care I just left mine default except the red button instead of black)
A fightstick's quality is less about the unit and more about what brand parts they use. If the stick uses genuine sanwa denshi or seimitsu parts then it's fine. If not, then don't waste your money.
I use Gimp and it's fine, but it's missing some professional features. Then again I only got gimp a month ago.
I used Trademe and the base price was $50, you can't choose an option to send it as a gift
I guess I'll just stick with the buttons I have now, they feel/sound pretty good and they don't have much input lag
If you can handle some light woodwork and some soldering you could probably build your own for cheaper honestly. Parts aren't that expensive and here's a guide on the anatomy of a stick/building one
Strange it was working fine just a few minutes ago. Check back later I guess! That works regardless best of luck with it my dude. Hope the page can provide some help when it comes back up.
If you never used a stick it would be retarded to buy a 250$ stick and you may not even like it. It maybe not as good as the other but its cheap and you can try if you even like stick to begin with. If you does then you can start with more money if you want
so how casual did they make sf5, i got sf4 ae and dicked around in the training thingy for maybe 40 hours but still didn't feel like i was nearly ready for online, am i too late to the party?
