I bought a Brawl Stick ( updated electronics compared to madcatz SE ) that already has modded sanwa stick + sanwa buttons inside, right here on SRK for the same price as sanwa parts by themselves. Very happy with my purchase.
Now for the noob question. There's sort of a sticky substance on top of 2 buttons + on part of the usb cord. It's not a big deal, button is still ultra-responsive and works fine. Just wondering if it's safe to use a wet tissue to scrub off the sticky stuff on the buttons without removing them. Or do I really need to open the case, remove the buttons and clean them outside? I'm not going to bother cleaning the cord since I don't need to touch that part anyway.

Haha I’m sort of a germophobe but I don’t think the sticky substance is biological.
Nice, thanks for the thorough tips. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it and I’m glad that it’s a safe and easy wipe, no disassembly required.

Why aren' t arcade sticks dual compatible with both PS3 and Xbox? Am I going to have to buy a whole nother stick just to play at certain tournaments just because I don' t have both consoles?

Thanks.Ill check those out.
And Im not living hand to mouth lol, I just meant I dont have loot to be dropping 100+ bucks on a controller, especially when Im fairly new to them you know? Like I said I used the Tekken 6 one from I think Hori for a while and it seemed pretty good... Dont take offense when I say this, I just cant think of a better way to word it at the moment, but are you speaking as like, a stick snob or is anything less than $150 really garbage? Id be stoked to get even a year or 2 out of it just to get myself re aquianted with arcade style playing. Again, sorry if that sounded dickish, I just know alot of guys say anything less than the best is a waste, which is fine and I respect that, but it cant really be true... Theres gotta be a practical jumping off point, right?

Uhhh...you're not really playing competitively if you're not gonna go as far as you can go at some point. Well, whatever. The two topics above basically cover what you want to know, and it's really down to your preferences. Unfortunately, it doesn't go into much detail about Korean products on the first page of those topics. The easiest option (probably the most affordable too) is the Omni, but since you're a Tekken player at heart, I don't know if I should recommend Japanese or Korean parts. Apparently, Korean sticks are generally not as loose as Japanese ones are and the buttons require a bit more pressure (as in if you feather buttons, the risk of accidental presses goes down.) Korean sticks generally don't use square gates either afaik. This can be nice for non-fighter use, especially shmups (personally, I can't stand the default TE parts with Mushihime-sama Futari on 360.)
More of an issue with that though is that the Omni is basically fucking awesome compared to buying two TEs and modding them yourself, and I don't see it in stock anywhere.

Famous last words from anyone who's ever touched toxic substances. lol
Cleaning a stick is a pretty simple process. Now if your buttons feel sticky and unresponsive, THEN you might want to consider opening your case, taking apart your buttons, cleaning it, and possily adding dialectric grease. Also an easy proceed, but it's not necessary, then don't bother. Keep it simple.

I have a question, when you move your character from back, forward, dash , jump , crouch block, qcf, hcb, 360 etc
do you move the stick all the way to the left then all the way to the right etc etc, as if you are moving the stick in the air... or do you just follow the edges of the gate throughout your motions ??
I feel it is very hard to to move the stick without touching the edges...
What do top players do ?

I know this may be a stupid question and may be off topic but I didn't want to start a new thread just to ask one question. If at a tournament they say the game I want to play is on xbox 360 and I have an xbox pad already I wouldn't need a converter of any sorts will I?

I don't believe it will. Check the SE modding guide in the tech talk stickies.

Ok so I already read at the start that the Tekken 6 stick is terrible, however I've been using it for over a year and I prefer it by far compared to a controller. However what my actual question is, am I probably going to have to relearn stick if I end up getting a good one?
I have a question about button sensitivity - I understand american buttons are less sensitive, while japanese parts are more sensitive. What I don't understand, is what sticks have japanese parts and what american ones. For example, Madcatz Soul calibur TE stick what kind of parts has ? in the item description it says sanwa parts - that means japanese or american ? (sounds japanese, but...).
I'm interested in a stick with more sensitive buttons - right now I have a tekken 6 wireless stick (yeah, cheap one, but it's ok), and I wonder how are the buttons compared to a Soul calibur TE stick. Thanks.Japanese & Korean parts are mainly what you will come across in the higher end sticks.The PDP Mortal Kombat stick has custom Happ parts which are American, but other than those and IL, there aren't many high quality, if any, American parts companies still around.
i got a question about this arcade sticks why is so hard to do the shoryuken command with them? and also should i buy this stick used for 75 bucks at a local game shop?http://www.gamestop.com/ps3/accessories/official-street-fighter-iv-fightstick-tournament-edition-for-sony-ps3/73046 i''m think about buy sadly i'm only an online player and i never go to local places for personal reasons.
