Anyone going without a select button?


#1

Just wondering if anyone has a stick without a select button…due to some unfortunate stuff happening it seems like for now the cheapest thing to do is make it so that my stick only has start + home.

Do any games require or make use of select? >_>;;


#2

Hard to say since every game is different, I believe Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4 uses select for something in training/practice mode. In general most Arcade fighters rarely uses Select. Is the the same SE you talked about tin the other thread?


#3

It’s a Hori EX2 with a PS360 PCB inside. Debating whether I should try to cobble together a daughterboard fix or just give up on a select button.


#4

One of my sticks I have SELECT mapped to :d:
Comes in handy when I need to update MC fw.


#5

That’s kind of odd…doesn’t that mean the stick is hitting select every time you move your joystick downwards?


#6

Arcsys games use select for training mode and character selection so its kind of need. I don’t think i ever use the home button and none of my customs have a home button.


#7

I have Blazblue but I don’t remember needing select for character selection…

I think a home button would be useful for tourneys and changing controller number, wouldn’t it? I play with lots of other people and we’re always hotswapping stuff.

that would be cool to make home + start = select

MvC2/3 uses select to Taunt. Which i use. Any time i drop an opponent character or catch someone in a Tron lunch rush. I make her laugh.

Select = necessity (for me anyway :p)

just make start+select = home. Otherwise youll have the guide come up everytime you want to hit select. Also sf4 uses it online to save replays.


#11

I use Guide instead of Back on 360. On older systems I use Select. It’s often necessary for ‘insert coin’ etc.


#12

I have Select on mine since it’s what I use to control the LEDs.


#13

Then it should be pretty trivial to wire start, select/back, and a home/guide to the matching buttons on the top of the stick. Ditto for the other two play buttons (RB LB I think?)

The problem is the four little buttons up top are like pad buttons - they push down with rubber on the daughterboard pcbs underneath them. On one side, this daughterboard is damaged and I can’t seem to solder wires leading to the PS360. Therefore, I only have 2 out of 4 functioning buttons on the top.

Unless I can get a new daughterboard and wire it up to the PS360, I’m stuck with a 8 button stick. (Six face buttons, two up top.)

I didnt have an LB for the longest till MvC3 needed it for reserver teams.
On my agetec dreamcast stick I just soldered 2 wires and have em dangling in front of the vmu screen. just touch em together…
