As the title suggest, I just invested in a Madcatz TE Arcade Stick, and I’m having a hard time to mimic everything I was able to do on my sega saturn pc style gamepad.
First of all, the feel is somewhat akward. My desk sits rather high(I have the PC verson of the game), and the arcade stick feels too elevated. I tried to use it on my lap, but it feels uncomfortable like that. I found a nice medium using my laundry basket though…lol, but I need a more reliable solution.
Secondly, my main is Ryu, and I’m honestly struggling just to consistently throw out fireballs, let alone trying anything like FADC Ultras. I did notice though, unlike my gamepad, using charge characters has become somewhat easier. I’m able to do stuff with characters like Rog that I was unable to do with my gamepad.
I guess my question is, is the learning curve that steep? It’s been literally like 10 years since I’ve had any arcade experience, and I’ve been using gamepads since. I really wanna get better with the arcade stick…should I just change mains, or gut it out? Just wondering what kind of timeframe I can expect to invest to feel comfortable with my stick.
