Ok so in vanilla, i used the madcatz fightpad the entire time and it was pretty good, but shortly before super came out, the jab button got really sticky and the jab button is HUGE part of Guiles game so i had to buy a new one.
Got one, it was alright for the first few days but then it started randomly jumping, so i sent it back and got a new one. This one was even worse because it’d randomly freeze you, randomly throw out pokes, randomly move forward and randomly jump…HORRIBLE! So i sent that one back and in the meantime i tried the regular ps3 pad, it actually hurts but the buttons seem durable, really easy to pull off the cr lp crmp link online, but the fierce buttons are in a weird place, takes some adaptation that i’d be willing to go through, worse case scenario.
Then ofcourse there’s the stick. I used to play on them all the time 10 years ago or more when arcades were really popular, but this stick seems MUCH harder and i’m not sure why. I go to practice and even with a character like ryu throwing a hadoken consistantly is like pulling a tooth, did i just get a bad stick? I’m quite sure i’d have no problem if i went to the arcades, I haven’t had a problem since i was 10 years old or younger
So, what do other Guile users suggest? Are their other pads out there besides madcatz with a good configuration and nice durability? Or do i have to learn to use that awkward variation of an arcade stick and…cya in 6 months?
