hi all having MAJOR problems with my akuma play on sf3, at first I thought it was cause my skills still had something to be desired ( aka sucked majorly) but after a while I noticed my inputs are very sluggish.

I am using a madcat sf4 controller for sf3, and thought that would suffice but it just does not seem to respond the way I want it too and more often or not I keep doing the same reliable moves to compensate ( i.e. low kick to hope I connect then TRY to low tatsu into HP then into w/e meaty move I want…) I was thinking arcade stick but that would take me A LONG time to adjust too ( never used arcade stick) .

the madcat controller is VERY good for sf4, but it doesnt seem to hold up well on sf3 ( i.e. on default settting when I want to input shun goku satsu the HP at the end is VERY hard to connect ( can;t do the roundhouse into sgs trial cause I’m too slow)

are there any controllers I should use that uses a d-pad for this game or … should I consider going back to the drawing board and start getting used to a arcade stick?

Get a stick. I love my Madcatz SF4 TE Round 2. Use the stickies before making a new thread.

What ever you’re most comfortable with is the best controller.

madcat controller is quite sluggish was gonna get the tekken 6 one but it’s wireless which means delay apparently…


#7

is the street fighter 4 one the only workable option? price range would be £33-£60 I guess… anything cheaper and reliable would be awesome

My bad I thought this post was in Newbie Saikyo Dojo. Head over to that forum and check out those stickies, you will get the most help there.

I’m using the 360’s rotating d-pad controller.

Also, you don’t need a stick at all.
