Here is run down:
-Originally Installed with Sanwa OBSN30 Snap ins with large G1 micro switches for 6 face buttons
-Originally Installed with crappy generic odd mm size buttons but they have Sanwa micro switches for start\select\home.
-Lever has always been same, Korean Myoungshin Fanta
-Original PCB PS360+
I am lazy and decide to have a guy at NEC do the wiring originally. Get the stick back, no apparent problems until I get home and start trying to break the stick in in training mode. Practicing TTT2 in training mode randomly I notice 1+2 ( Square + Triangle) was not activating. It just would give me 1 then 2. Chalked it up to just missed inputs but upon turning on input history and constantly pressing 1+2 it became obvious the stick was dropping about every 15 to 20th input. For a control I plugged in my old stick TTT2 Madcatz PS3 stick and it was 100 for 100.
So first thing I do is switch the 1 and 2 buttons to two regular OBSN30 Snap ins. No change. Changed the cord that connects the PCB to the console, nothing. Changed the wires to the two buttons, nothing. Changed the firmware of the PS360+ 3 times nothing. I come to the conclusion that the PCB must be bad.
Months pass. I go and grab a Hori FC4 to padhack into the stick. I do that myself. Brand new wiring, same buttons & stick though. To my shock the problem STILL exists with the stick. I go out and buy all brand new buttons Sanwa OBSN30 screw ins and nothing changed. To prove to myself I’m not crazy I plug in my TTT2 Madcatz Stick and straight up do 400 1+2 inputs in a row, no misses.
So what the fuck?
Anybody got any ideas or is this stick cursed?
