I’ve swapped out buttons/artwork and tightened the spring on my twoTEs a few times in the past, so when the Crown 303-FK was available I thought I’d try swapping out Joysticks for the first time.
Installing the Crown 303-FK seemed to go well enough. I only had two issues: One of the washers was broken when I unscrewed my JLS from the plate, and I had trouble actually fitting the crown back into the stick case (which seems to be the case when swapping a Crown into a TE)
But once I actually started playing on it I was having issues with right direction inputs. I had a hard time getting the stick to input down-right (I couldn’t do hadokens when facing right unless I went very slowly). I investigated a bit and realized that the stick just wasn’t returning to neutral from right the way it should.
I messed around a bit and couldn’t figure out a way to fix the issue, and since EVO is coming up (why did I think to swap joysticks a week before EVO, anyway?) I figured I’d just go back to my JLS and mess with it later.
So I reinstalled my JLS, but the action on my spring is now totally out of whack; there’s a “neutral” position, but the stick doesn’t really want to return to it. Moving the stick around feels jagged. I tried a couple of different springs and checked against my other JLS to make sure that I have all of the pieces back in the right order, everything seems to be in the right place but I’m still having trouble. I can’t figure out what I’m missing here.
The only thing I can think of, maybe the missing washer is throwing things off? That seems like a stretch, but I have no idea what I’m doing wrong here. Really hoping I can fix this before I fly out, any help or advice is very much appreciated.
