Absolute Question and Answer Thread (ASK YOUR QUESTIONS HERE!)

Madcatz Te is pretty easy… that link you have is for a rj-45 mod as well that isnt needed for TE dual mods… just use the links Toodles has on the first page of the thread I gave you and you should be good to go…

I told you in the other Thread where to go.
The Thread you want is in what I said you to look at.

noobie question: Can i play on the ps3 using my hori ex2 fightstick using this: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/xbox-360-to-ps3-usb-wired-controller-adapter-converter-100cm-cable-42000, for some reason i been have second doubts on getting it so what do u guys think?

Have guys. I am about to make an arcade stick and I would like to talk to an experienced stick creator on skype/aim before I do

Skype: Ethan.Pidcock
Aim:Shaggy1029
^ Old aim Name dont make fun of me^

I’d never trust a USB to USB converter. I’ve never heard much good about them. But, you can always read the most converter info at Converter Compatibility Thread

You will be better off performance wise going ether PS2 to USB (PS3 or Xbox 360) or Dual-Mod

Why skype or Aim? What has to be said there that can’t we asked here, unless your looking for real time help. There also a people who are not comfortable Aim or Skype. Or they lack an account with one of the 2.

Also you can PM people here in this forum.

Can you tell me why as there bad?

Lag and dropped inputs.

which is why precisely you dual mod so you can get rid of that terrible lag/dropped inputs.

However you said you were using an EX2. You’re not going to be dual modding using that accursed not common ground board.
At this point you’re going to be spending more than what you would for that cable but it will be worth it.

Also I had a friend of mine buy that before I could stop him. He said exactly what we are saying right now.

Hey guys I got a really dumb question: what type of screws are on the front of a MvC3 TE?

Should be 3mm Allen(hex) Screws.

Any cheap set should be able to open them, just turn it, don’t push down on them.

Ah, disappointing. I don’t believe I have an Allen wrench. My balltop and buttons are gonna have to wait. :[

EDIT: Found one, thanks ExtremeYoshiFan! :]

Sorry if this isn’t the correct thread, or if this has been answered before but, out of all the TE sticks, which is the easiest, or best, to mod the art on?

All the TE cases are the same… its just the Bezel on some that make the size of the artwork a little diffrent… but if you dont plan to use the Bezel then its no worries… Artwork on a TE the size just depends on what you want the final outcome to look like… either with the bezel or without.

Anyone else have trouble removing the A button on TE’s? The other 7 were easy, but this one won’t come off. T_T

Only trouble is the TE-S. If you want a regular sized artwork, you need to buy a Madcatz bezel to fit it in. But if you want the extended-style artwork that replaces the bezel, or full front panel artwork, then it’s as easy as any other TE. But all TEs are really easy to swap art on. You may want to visit tek-innovations.com to be able to order artwork and a plexi cover to go over it.

Ah, yes. The evil button that doesn’t want to let go. I’ve had those. Just do what you know best, try to be gentle and not break it, and use a small flathead screwdrive to really wedge it out.

I like to mention I always manage to break at least 1 snap-in every single time on TEs. I guess I have what Kyle dubs Happ hands.

Breaking 1 snap on is not an issue if you are replacing the push button any ways.

I did a forum search and couldn’t find a thread where this was asked so I figured this was the place to ask (and if its not, I am sincerely sorry for that).

I just got a Madcatz TE Stick today and I wanted to put new buttons in it. This went successfully, but when I was putting the allen bolts back into the top, one of them snagged and it wouldn’t go in or come out. I had turned it until I felt a small hitch and then stopped. I finally got it to come out and apparently the thread of the bolt was messed up and I didn’t notice because it came out perfectly fine. The nut that was attached to the bottom came off from where it was attached. Anybody got any tips on how to reattach it?

you can remove the bottom panel, and hold the nut in place as you screw in the hex screws or you can keep the nut in place with a small, and I do mean very small dab of super glue.

Thank you, Darsakul. Now I just need to find a replacement bolt as this one is going in the trash can. :slight_smile:
