Hey guy’s, so I have been reading up on arcade sticks and have come across a lot of info. I have basically made my descision and have semi ordered a Official Street Fighter IV TE madcatz stick.
The main reason’s being that it has had awesome reviews, has japanese parts and it is the most easily available one to me here in Brazil.
Anyway, seeing as I main Ryu and Abel (for now) they use primarily quarter circle move sets, now, I have heard that the square gate can be difficult to use with these types of characters, I have played fairly small amounts in arcades and have not a lot of experience with gates and what not, and infact only started learnin about the different parts to an arcade stick about a month ago.
My question is, will having a square gate affect me much? I mean, I don’t know any better. Is it that hard to get a hadoken out with a square gate?? Should this deter me from getting this specific stick??
And one more question, I know that I can change/mod the gate, the problem for me is being able to buy a different shaped one here in Brazil, would there be a problem if I took the square one out and sanded it to a round shape? I am fairly good with my hands so it wouldn’t be hard to do, I just wanna know if it would effect anything internal in the stick??
Thanks for any and all replies!
