Sorry in advance in case this was covered earlier, but when I searched I only picked up on washer problems and I’m sure it’s not that.
The stick doesn’t hold in any directions from like a messed up washer or anything so it’s not the stick itself holding the direction, but my character will still be walking forward/backwards/crouching even when the stick is in neutral. It’s not to long that my guy is doing it (like 1/3 a second extra), but it’s enough to throw me off and make vertical jumps turn into backward/forward jumps. Would cleaning out my microswitches solve the problem, and if so what’s the best way of going about doing that (with a solvent like lighter fluid after I open it up?)? It’s a Sanwa stick just in case that helps.
