Okay. I need to know what the issue is, is it inherent or because I’m using a stock SE stick?
With a round AND octogonal gate, diagonal/down blocking, and doing QCB motions just DONT work. No hurricane kick in any game, even SSFIV. Marvel/A1/A2 recovery rolls are also impossible. TKAHVB’s, Mags, ect, PERFECT.
I see that the problem is that with the gates, both microswitches aren’t getting touched/clicked at diagonal. You have to move the stick slightly, then you hear the click, and your guy can now block. This problem is non existent with the stock gate.
I’ve heard this complained about before, AND my buddy also tried the same thing with the same results.
I even tried wrapping part of the stick where it touches the switches in tape, so it would be fatter, and touch both switches sooner, but it doesn’t work. If you wrap too much, the MS’s stay engaged, and there seems to be no middle ground on that. It’s either too much, or not enough.
I customized my sticks look, so I don’t wanna sell it, but it’s sure as hell useless to me. It HAS to be round for me to even consider it.
If a different stick wont solve this problem, then it’s for sale. I’d like to know this issue BEFORE I buy a Sanwa/Seimitsu stick, for it to be exactly the same. What can I expect for this:
Hate to see it go, but also tired of looking at it, collecting dust.
