Looking for the perfect Joystick for fighting games


#1

First off I want say this is a great forum for info for us DIY gamers. I’ve looked over some reviews and found this joystick which has been posted here also. I’m hearing so much about UltraStik 360 Joystick and was wondering is there anything out there that beats this joystick when it comes to features etc? I really like it because it can be programed and I can set it between 4way to 8way as well as other maps. Great for classic games.

Right now I have the control panel and push buttons of choice but still deciding on the right joystick. I would like to have my joystick as real as the arcade comes at home but also want something that has great control for motions like 360s and fireball motions with smoothness. I would like to hear anyone suggestions of choice. My main reason for a joystick is to use for fighters and second for classic games like Pac Man etc. Thanks for any help here.

First, quit with the all boldface, it hurts the eyes.

Second most people here use either Sanwa JLF, Seimitsu LS-32 or Happs Competition since these are the exact same sticks used in the arcade cabinets (Sanwa or Seimitsu for Japanese style balltop with gate, Happs for US style bat top and no gate).

you need to get a stock mayflash stick, those are the best sticks that all the pro-gamers use. but there are a lot of Chinese bootleg ones at online sites so the only way to get a real one would be to buy a 1 way ticket to northern Africa and travel about 8000 miles east through the Sahara on camel back then down the Nile river on a raft made by the prince of Zamunda 20 years ago while he was in control of that area there.

After that you will have to sneak and make your way through Afghanistan cause they don’t like Americans there and if your cover gets blown at any time you will need to make it to the train station there IMMEDIATELY or the Afghanistan tiger snake assassination squad will be on your ass and you don’t want to fuck with those niggaz cause they will cut your balls off on national television then make you eat it then cut your head off after you swallow it then hold your head up and have everyone see your balls come out of your throat while your head is cut off.

Anyways, should you make it through Afghanistan your next stop would be to journey through the slums of Shaolin where you would meet a young fellow by the name of Ting Tang Kick. You will need to give him your sneakers cause hes always trying to break dance by spinning on his head and in his country they don’t have shoe laces so when he does the break dance move, he does it with so much strength that the sandals he wears goes flying in the air and that’s the last they see of them. He has been looking for some real sneakers from America since he has heard about niketalk and how good sneakers here can be really valuable and cost like up to 800 dollars a pair for some Jordans. In return for giving him your sneakers he will grant you 3 wishes after he performs his moves at the annual battle of the cool moe dee concert that they have there.

Now here is where you have to listen and follow through with my directions. the 1st wish will be for him to arrange for you a trip to Japan by boat ride from Shaolin. 2nd wish will be for you to have a chance to safely obtain a true Mayflash arcade stick for free. and 3rd wish will be for a safe trip from Japan to you house. Once in Japan you will go to Kuroda’s porno shop and you will need to fight him in a set of Street Fighter 3:3rd Strike while using Ibuki. This is the most important part because you have to beat him so that he will then cry and get distracted from losing to a scrub THEN you will sneak past him and unplug his Mayflash USB Stick and run away. You will then take a taxi to the airport IMMEDIATELY.

When you arrive to the airport, proceed to the gate where American airlines flight 284 is boarding at 9:24 PM there will be a Mexican midget that looks like el fuerte there holding a sign with your last name on it. Talk to him and say “Yo estoy caggando ariba de los mexicanos” and he will then hand you the flight’s boarding pass and tickets and then you will be able to return home safely with your Mayflash USB Stick.

Hard to read for me in black letters using SRK Black Forum Skin.

A lot of others have two, four and eight way settings even though with an extra / other restrictor plate.
What would you use the programmable feature for?


#6

I would just like to be able to switch between 4way and 8way with ease. Without have to open cabinet.


#7

can’t read your post so can’t reply.


#8

How do you use the black theme lol…


#9

as far as i know, doing that without opening the cabinet is not possible, not even on the happ perfect 360.

edit: as far as joysticks that can switch between 4 and 8-way restriction, pretty much everything you see here can be adjusted between the two. the only ones that can’t are the happ/iL competitions/euro, and the seimitsu LS-56. also please read this and the page that comes directly after it.

premium members get access to a few extra skin color themes.

It seems you still need to open it up if you want to change restrictors on the Ultimarc UltraStik 360.
