new to this forum, never created an account for this site, but I thought it’d be a perfect forum to ask.
First, I’ve played more than 50,000 matches in Tekken 6 and Tekken Tag 2, used Madcatz TE1 Round 1, Soul Calibur TE stick, and now just upgraded to the Madcatz TE2+. I’ve done thousands and thousands of combos, it’s in my muscle memory so much that I can do it in my sleep. My main character is Bryan for example and I use his taunt dash extensively in my game. Prior to this TE2+, I’ve had absolutely ZERO problems with the input, but ever since I switched to this new stick, the TE2+, I’ve keep getting input errors. For those who don’t know, bryan’s taunt is Square, X, and O, or in Tekken input terms, it’s 1+3+4 pressed all together a the same time, and to do his taunt dash, it’s forward, forward, 1+3+4, Forward, 1+3+4, F, 1+3+4, and so on. I can do that in my sleep, it’s very much automatic for me, and rarely make a mistake, but ever since I got this stick, it’ would sometimes come out as a 3+4, which is a another move by bryan. I’ve been trying to find out what is wrong with this stick, even tried putting a new sanwa buttons, STILL the problem persists. Also, I’ve been having trouble with 2 button inputs, for example, Devil Jin’s bound input is DF 1+2, sometimes it would come out as a DF 2 which i would NEVER EVER do even in my sleep. Is there an input lag when you play PS3 games on the TE2+? does anyone have any issues with this regarding multiple button inputs? 30% it would come out as a single button input even though I am pressing 2 buttons as the SAME time. I’ve made a review on Amazon, which is where i bought this stick, and somebody replied to my review saying the same problem, saying his Dragunov’s FF 1+2 grab is coming out as F 1,2 as if he pressed 1,2 in a sequences instead of at the same time. Also I would get commands like a sequence even though I’m pressing 2 buttons together, it would come out as 1,2 instead of 1+2. This has been extremely annoying since for example I’m going for a 2+4 grab, it would either come out as a 2, or 2,4.
I would very appreciate if you guys can tell me what the issue is, and let me know if you are ALSO experiencing this issue when it comes to multiple button inputs, whether it’s a 2 buttons together, or 3, or even 4 buttons at the same time, it’s not coming out.
BTW, I’m no foreigner to sticks and modding sticks, the rest of the stick works perfectly fine, joystick works fine, the buttons work perfectly fine when pressed individually, it checks out in the Madcatz’s driver joy.cpl, all the buttons show they are functional, the wiring is perfectly fine and connected, AND if i touch the two disconnect wires together, they work. So it issue could be “in-game”
Thanks in advance, I hope some tekken tag 2 players with TE2+ can shine some light on this.
ON a sidenote, my stick set up is Sanwa JLF, 2 lb spring, Octagonal gate, Bat top
