So I just built a new stick from scratch this past weekend.
I built it to have a hit-box style layout where i have Up/Down/Left/Right as buttons. Also, I added a Sanwa JLF on the left hand side because I sometimes like to use stick vs hitbox style. The directionals are individually grounded to the PCB and not daisy chained either. I also soldered off the circuit board that comes with the JLF stick and directly wired each microswith to the grounds/signals to the PCB.
I go into Street fighter x tekken training mode to test it out. Every thing works fine. All the buttons engage/disengage like they are supposed to and the joystick/button directionals work fine.
The only issue I have is if I try to input a Half circle back motion or Half circle forward motion on the hitbox button directionals the game only registers the forward, down-forward, back-forward, back inputs (This being for half circle back) and on the other side only back,down-back,down-forward,forward for the half circle forward. The game completely skips the down input. Its not because I am doing it very fast as I have been playing on hitbox for about six months now. I tried it very slowly and it still wont register down.
Here is the kicker - I tried to do the same motion on the JLF stick and everything registers fine. The down registers every single time but not on the hitbox button side.
I checked my soldering points and they are good. I am playing on PS3 btw if that matters.
Anyone with the paewang experience this issue or know how to deal with it? The only thing I can narrow it down to would be that the buttons are bad since I know my pcb is good because the JLF stick is picking up the inputs.
If you need any other details about the stick, please ask.
Thanks for the help guys.
