“Seimitsu is only for manly men who have too much power in their button presses. Men who use Seimitsu tend to be the men that open jars for the girlie Sanwa men. Real men like us also like to crack open pistachios that have no crack in them with only two fingers.”
Happ buttons aren’t manly, they are for cheap bastards, what do you expect from microswitched buttons. The whole debate between Sanwa’s sensitive SW-68 switch versus Seimitsu’s switches is retarded. TBH, I love both and I would prefer them any day over microswitched buttons. Momentary contact buttons ftw.
Oh man jdm714, that’s awful! I recommend you try getting yourself a bottle of Goo Gone to get rid of any grime you might need to remove. One 8 fluid ounce bottle lasts a LONG time, I’m telling ya! I’ve used that stuff to remove even the toughest adhesives. Once, i used it to remove super glue I accidentally spilled on one of my Sanwa buttons!
So my gaming PC has been out of service for some time, due to a bad motherboard. Well, I finally upgraded, but when it came in it was bad too.
So I had a bunch of parts all over my table, testing out different configurations to troubleshoot. For giggles I hooked up the board that wasn’t working. While looking up the beep code to see if it was complaining about the same thing that the “new” bad board did (power issues) I found a section in the manual that mentioned 3-pin and 4-pin CPU fan configurations, and noticed the jumper was set to 4-pin. I figured what the hell, and switched it to 3-pin. Computer booted up with no problems.
… so yeah, my busted computer actually works – I just had one jumped pin in the wrong place. Go figure.
(and yes, I’m returning the new board, as it really is broken)
Hey now. Some people like the tactile ‘clicky’ feel of a mircoswitched happ button. One of the main reasons I didn’t bother with getting a stick before is that there weren’t many good options for a happ based stick. Considering the cost of making the stick, I wouldn’t exactly call myself a cheap bastard. To each his own though.
I have toyed with the idea of using a JLW and some OBS-30B buttons for the closest thing I could get to a happ stick using all sanwa parts. But I’m not even sure the total outlay would be worth it (or what colors I could work out). I need to see what the depth of those buttons are to see what case they could fit.
As for lights, I don’t see how they degrade performance at all. It’s just more a ‘wow, look what I can do’ thing more than anything. I’m wiring up a switch to cut the lights of if I chose.
Strangest thing, though… I’d never have thought that’s what it was in a million years, especially since it did work at one time. I just turned it off one day and it stopped working. Two years later, it suddenly does. Oh well.
The amount of money I’ve wee’d down the drain fixing issues like this with my pc’s over the years, is shocking. Partly the reason that I don’t game on the PC any more.
Re Buttons: I find myself flicking between sanwa’s and Seimitsu clears. Sometimes I want that sanwa feel and sometimes I want the reassuring and solid ‘SNAP’ of hitting a seimitsu. I don’t think I would cook my beans in either camp indefinately.
I picked up the 2 slot Neo-Geo cab I’ve been trying to get for the last few weeks. The monitor was out so I ended up ghettofying it with a humble 21 inch SDTV. It makes it easier for console use since my broke ass can’t afford a $300 replacement monitor.
