I'm thinking about buying a Nubytech Street Fighter Controller. Is it true that the D-Pad is analog? If it is, that's a deal killer, since I plan on playing Neo Geo Battle Coliseum.

If I am holding the fighstick cross-handed do you think I'll feel more comfortable while playing it or do you think it won't matter?
and there's no L3/R3 buttons.
It's wireless (thought it was wired) so there's noticeable input lag and the stick constantly disconnects

I've read the first post but I don't think this has been asked/stated yet. Im thinking of buying a new stick since I play fighters so much and all on an analog on a pad which isn't a 100% viable for me with the chars I play.
What stick do most tourny players that I watch on stream use? I THINK its the TE round 2 stick for either mvc3 or sf4. Is that true? If so what type of ball/stick do most players i see use? The yipes, justins whatnot.

Has anyone used the pdp rock candy or afterglow ax.1? I find the stock xbox 360 d pad to be terrible for fighters and am looking to purchase one or the other.

I think I want to stay with a pad as opposed to trying stick. Can anyone recommend a good PS3 fightpad (I assume none are both PS3 and PC) around $50-60 primarily with an exceptional movement pad? Currently using a sfxt pad and while I like the button placement the movement pad is total ass.

Just a quick question,
Are Eightarc/Quanba sticks still the only mass produced dual modded sticks?

Thanks. I saw that part in the guide but didn't know it had a lot of current stuff because there's a lot of really oldschool controllers on it. I will search for what all those look like.

I'm thinking of getting a proper 360 stick that uses the Namco Noir layout, and I've narrowed my selection down to two basic models;
1> Madcatz SCV/TTT2 fightstick, or
2> Hori SCV/TTT2 stick
The factors that matter most to me are PC compatibility, ease of modding/repairing, and how comfortable it is to use on my lap.
Are there any serious issues that would make one more suitable than the other?

I suggest the Hori SCV/TTT2 Stick. Has a very nice weight for lap gaming, yep PC compatibility checked, and when I play on it, It has good space for hands to be relaxed for long hours of playing. As for modding, I'm not that good at it yet but I've swapped buttons and the stick and it was pretty easy. The TTT2 has a badass artwork too. Only downside, the cable compartment which breaks off most the time but u can put it back.

If you want to dual mod it then the easiest would be the MadCatz Soul Edition or TTT2.

Hi all. I've read the first page and am still a little lost on what i should get. Total noob to arcade sticks. Been a d-pad user for far too long. Want to take my game to the next level and find it hard to do on a d-pad. I play mostly just blazblue and guilty gear games on ps3.
I wanted to just get that blazblue stick but good lord it's too damn much. From what little research I've done I think I want to try a madcatz TE or TE-S. But the only one I can find that's not soul-destroyingly expensive is this one: snip.... .

Ok so I finally have the money to buy a stick, and im finally ready to move from my xbox analog stick to a real fighting stick to hopefully improve my game as a whole.
Im planning on ordering a madcatz round 2 TE MVC3 or SF4 stick. These are good right? I know it says on the first post they are but just checking. The MVC3 one should be about the same as well from what I read. I just dont wanna make the wrong decision and be stuck with it xD

So first of all I've read the first page , so I know about the current models in general.
I search a XBOX only arcade stick. As far as I know, all current arcade sticks from hori or madcatz are sufficient and if I can find a good deal, I can choose any of the current models. (The current good models are:)
hori real arcade pro vx sa
Madcatz arcade fightstick PRO series (like the EVO 2012 or SFxTekken)
Madcatz fightstick Soul Edition
These are the models I can find easily on amazon or ebay in germany. What I dislike about the sticks is the artwork about a specific game (I dont plan to mod the stick, I already have a selfmade multi console full sanwa stick, I just search a stock xbox360 stick without modding it).
Are there "neutral" Arcade sticks of the brands hori and madcatz without such artworks? And with actual pcb and other electronic versions?
I planned to buy the HORI Real Arcade Pro 3 for xbox360, because it looks neutral with the black top, but it has "only" Hori buttons and is more expensive then the SFxtekken madcatz stick (which goes for 101€ new, but I dont play sfxtekken, so I dont want to have the artwork on my stick).
Ah and another important point, how about the dimensions of the stick? I search a stick which fits easily in comon backpacks.
thx so far

There no difference between the Mad Catz MvC 3 TE or SF IV TE sticks other than art and color scheme.
The Neutral or No-game art theme TE include the "Asian" white TE and the limited edition Gold Evo TE. I Left the Gold Evo stick out of the guide because of it's rarity.
There is also a Blue Evo Pro Stick by Mad Catz.
and the Hori stick you mention is not game themed.
But there no commercial stick out there with absolutely no panel art.You migth want to bite the bullet get a decent stick with (what you feel) is less than stellar art and later swap out the art work.
Yeah the HORI Real Arcade Pro 3 is kinda huge, but its a PS3 stick. The Xbox 360 version is called the Hori Real Arcade Pro - EX.
Not all the older Hrap sticks use Hori knock offs, Hrap's models ending in SA are all Sanwa while Hori ending in SE is Seimitsu
If you want to go to a smaller stick there the non-pro version of the VX and V3, it has Hori buttons but with some effort the stick can be easily modded to take Seimitsu or Sanwa buttons. All the Premium sticks from Mad Catz, Hori, and Qanba/Eightarc are quite large.
Exar's Sanwa edition stick is small but it is a PS3 stick.
I don't have exact dimensions at the moment, I need to find my measuring tape to measure out my TE and Hrap EX.

Ah ok, so there are no "pro" sticks with smaller measurements, thats a pain :( !
With the "non-pro version of the vx and v3" you mean the Hori Fighting stick Ex2? I hear that's hard to mod, and I dont plan to mod the stick, I would prefer it to have it stock with sanwa parts. Thx so far. At the moment I think I will go with the new madcatz tekken tag tournament 2 stick, it has a kind of neutral artwork, but I dont like the broken glass look :(. Or I might go with the Hori tekken tag tournament 2 stick, also top of the line, and kind of dark, so you cant really see the artwork from a distant.
I very much like the noir layout, the bottom row is more shifted to the right (compared to astro city), which is much better for me, because I dont play with my thumb.

Was thinking about picking up a Qanba Q2, the one with left/right hand. I don't really need that feature, but there's a good deal on it at eightarc.com. -20 flat rate, and -20 with coupon XMAS2012. Anyone have any experience with it? I never had a stick, and I was thinking about picking that up. I figure for that price, it'd be worth not having dual mod.

The funny thing is that any of the Qanba sticks (RAF series, Q2, Q3 & Q4) has a mode button that inverts the stick levers controls for left hand use. Either way, Qanba sticks are quality equipment from what I had in the past(Q3 & RAF4 S3).

It may have been talked about before and I read the little snippet about it but does anyone here actually use the Hori EX2 pad or have any additional information on it?

You mean the Fighting Stick EX2?
It has a nice layout, but it's a lot of work to mod.
Or are you talking about the Horipad EX2 Turbo?

Do Hori's TTT2 and SCV sticks not have the ability to map the stick inputs to left or right analog? All I see are useless button swapping switches. I don't want to be stuck with just a POV hat in Windows.
