Madcatz se help!


#1

okay guys, I’ve searched and searched and I just made an account just so I can get help. Cuz from what I have searched through everyones been helped out

so here is the story. I bought the madcatz se fightstick for 40 bucks[yeah 40] instead of the tournament edition. I bought the sanwa jlf joystick and sanwa buttons off lizard lick.

so I swapped the parts and everything worked great. no problems what so ever. then I painted my case.
after I put all my parts back in everything works except the joystick

now i know for sure the stick works because I had a new pcb sent to me and even checked on a friends and sure enough that is working properly. The harness is this

and I know for sure that is not the problem. so my question is what do i do to fix this mess?! all i wanted was a fight stick because of the third strike announcement a while back =[

mmmmm what else to tell you guys…Oh i check the parts and there is no paint or anything on them.
the pin input on the pcb part is not bent or anything and the soldering on it is in tack…

#9

oh you should have seen my face when I read jdm714’s comment…I ran to my fight stick and shouted so loud and then proceeded to rushing to my computer to tell everyone on aim and skype how stupid I am. xD


#10

awesome. this happened to me when i used a fightpad PCB for a custom stick. it was set at RS for some reason by default and i had no idea wat was wrong. glad to know this happens to other people in this fine community


#11

There was a guy who made a Thread eight hours ago.
He said that suddenly, his Directionals lag.
He was on LS instead of DP.
Laugh.


#12

yeah i don’t think that was as bad as what I did. lol

I mean I had parts ordered in and all that…xD
Im laughing really hard now but an hr ago and the past few days were sooo stressful =P

I remember when I modded my TE Stick and then the joystick didn’t work and I opened it up then finally asked on Tech Talk and then…
