I got this stick a few months ago (never used sticks before). And everyone has told me that I’ll get the hang of it. I mostly have but there are a few things that I just can’t do and it feels like I won’t ever learn even after trying to practice them over and over and over. It just feels wrong, so I’m thinking maybe it’s the stick setup.
I’m using the wine glass grip with my 3 fingers on the back of the ball and the thumb on the other, with the pinky below and I rest my wrist on the panel.
The issue is that I can not do super moves (playing mostly 3s), QCFx2 motions. It’s especially worse on the player 1 side and in the air even more so (playin gouki). [it feels awkward trying to PUSH the motions out as opposed to PULLING them out] Luckily my game has already been built about no relying on hit-confirming supers so it’s only slightly detrimental. and doing demons aren’t really a problem (even though I still can’t TKD after years of practice >.< and I can easily on SF4 after a few minutes LOL)
The other issues I’ve noticed is that sometimes my inputs seem to not read, which after testing I realize that the directions that click immediately in the proximity of the U, D, L, R do not register anything but those 4 directions respectively. So If I wan’t to diagnol jump I have to basically click into the corner of the square gate every time. I don’t know if this is how it is supposed to be or not but it feels wrong because the stick is directed towards and up the opponent and I just get a jump straight up.
I was thinking both of these issues may be solved by switching to an octo gate?
Furthermore, I think the spring is too loose? Sometimes when I input commands I get the reverse direction (from a slight rebound of the stick). I’ll be trying to input a hadouken or a srk and get a red fireball or backwards jump or something odd like that.
Another issue is that I can’t get moves to come out with great consistency like I use to on my dpad (well besides when it started fucking up). Many times I’ll get srk instead of hadou, a plain punch when trying to hadou, srk when trying to super, plain kick when trying to demon flip, etc.
Do you think I need a tighter spring? I’m thinking maybe twice as tight as it is now (stock spring ofc) would be enough.
TL;DR having issues with doing moves and specials and general movement control all around. Should I get an octo gate and a tighter spring?
What’s that lizard site? What kind of spring should I get? Are there any other cheaper sites? I don’t care how long things take to ship if it’s cheaper.
PS- I play on PC, mostly GGPO and win live when I play sf4. But even in cps3 emu/training mode I still have issues.
PPS- Offtopic, Why are there no arcades in Orange County? I want to play 3s Live. So sick of GGPO ugh
