Hey guys, I just found this site and had a quick question. I’ve been playing SF since 1991 and I am used to the arcade “bat” style controller. I have been looking into buying a controller and I noticed that this Sanwa “ball” controller is what most people are recommending. I’ve never played on it and was just wondering if most of you guys are using that for your custom controllers and if there is any real advantage to this stick over the “bat” controller.
Also, I never played on an arcade game that had that slanted button stlye that most sticks have. What is the reason for this? It seems like it would be awkward to play on that opposed to the normal straight button layout.
Thanks for any help.
