Madcatz Street Fighter V Fightstick Alpha


#166

now im wondering if the joystick mount will only support JLF’s?


#167

Idk man… with SF5 needing all 6 buttons to taunt, you might want that dedicated button. Or no?

Im gonna taunt people all day, and when they try to taunt back they will mess up and activate v-skill/trigger or something.


#168

that might be the case but at the end no matter if you use them or not its a aditional
option people can use when they want. a eight button layout doesnt hinders you to
use just 6.

more “options” = more people to attract your product too.


#169

Weird.
Amazon.ca has a listing for this stick, but at $130…


#170

MarkMan said “It still fits standard Sanwa/Seimitsu parts”, so let’s hope there’s space in there for Seimitsu levers.


#171

Looks like the Alpha fits Sanwa parts just as poorly as any other shallow depth case.
Look at the length of the shaft:/


#172

I’m surprised Madcatz isn’t squeezing more life out their SE shell molds- that was a nice case.


#173

Listed at $80 for pre-order price.

I have a lot of updating on the first post to do.


#174

im actually excited about this stick, i hope this weighs more than other sticks this size. my biggest issue with the hori mini wasnt really the miniatured parts, but how light it was, doing a hadouken can end up with you lifting the whole thing.

specifically why i asked about seimitsu mounting, ls32/40 might solve the shaft height issue for some

could have meant just buttons :frowning:

On most capcom games the PS3 and Xbox 360 Taunt is on Select last I checked. Plus who taunt’s in a match?
No one needs 3X Punch or 3X Kick.

Six buttons still stands

Taunt has uses in some games. 3S being one. Plus side there is that Taunt is HP+HK so…


#178

dude. dont even go there. the FS3 & EX2 mods ive done in the past were nightmares. the PCBs were soldered onto the buttons. and lots of dremeling & modding to get a standard JLF to fit. @MarkMan will the alpha be able to fit a full sized JLF?


#179

A friend of mine likes these smaller case sticks and is in a need of next gen stick, but he plays on xbone… @MarkMan any chance of an xbone version?


#180

I wish i knew how long this stick was, i’m thinking of getting this stick. Parts can always be modded out for something better.


#181

Also, I thought it might be like a transitional peripheral from controller to stick, and might also be easier for smaller hands, i.e. younger players who may find a regular size stick too heavy & may not want to/or not have money to purchase a TE-sized stick.

gives aou a better clue about the size when you know the te´s size.


#183

Swapping in sanwa buttons and jlf was pretty straight forward. No case modifications needed.


#184

@Gummo , you referring to the Alpha or Markmans question about the mini hori? If the alpha, any soldering/desoldering needed or QDs?


#185

Would it be possible to remove the parts from this case and add them to a different one? I’m looking into getting a fightstick that’s reasonably priced but the weight and size looks to be discouraging. Sorry for the total noob question.
