Hello all, I need some help modding my MVC 3 TE stick, specifically the stick itself. A bit of background to explain what I am trying to accomplish… I grew up in arcades with (what I have recently learned to be) American style stick setups, ie. Bat top stick, and circle gate with a tight spring. When MVC 3 came out I made the decision to switch from pad to stick and started on modding the stick.
I have already modded my TE stick to have a circle gate and a bat top, but its still giving me some issues. The two major problems I have are that the bat top spins constantly while I am playing, which really throws off my execution. Is there any way to make it so the bat top doesn’t spin but just stays in place?
The other issue I am having is that the spring is way too loose for my liking. I found a tutorial on youtube on how to stretch out the spring to make it firmer, and that didn’t work, and I even went to Home Depot as I saw on old thread on Shoryken that they would have suitable replacement springs, but couldn’t find any. I know you can get replacement springs from Lizardlick (where I bought my gate and bat top), but don’t know which spring to order.
Anybody have any tips on these issues?
Thanks for your help.
