Hello! I’m looking to build my first fightstick (case, at least + artwork). I’m not entirely a beginner when it comes to fighting games as my favourite was mk but I decided to move to a “real man’s game”. I do have a fightstick (Hori Mini 4, kinda small and can’t rest my hand on it when I grip the joystick) but I’ve decided to move on from it, it has a problem registering forward-backward movement.
Of course the transition from pad to controller was hard and I started playing fighters again (took a break) and I’m dropping inputs with my current stick and doing better with an XB1 controller (playing PC, steady 60 fps).
That’s the whole build, want to know if it’s compatible. I just found out about joystick throws and that they’re not the same. I’m not sure if I should spend $36 more to buy a Sanwa JLF or use the Seimitsu in my list. I get that it’s to personal preference, but I’m looking to do intermediate-advanced combos more (can do most of the beginner combos). Bought a $12 PCB cause I’m looking to get a Cronus Max later.
Regarding the joysticks it’s really hard for me to do double qcb’s/qcf’s with my current Hori Mini 4 joystick. Akuma player mostly and looking to get an octagonal restrictor/gate.
I’ve got many colours cause I want my artwork to be like Wario-Waluigi-Yoshi and the orange button is for L2, might be playing MK sooner or later. (Don’t need L1 cause pressing X+A on stick is much easier.)
