Does anyone have any experience playing 4-way games on an octagonal gate? I have a HRAP3 that I’ve been using exclusively for Tetris on my computer. Naturally, the first thing I did when I got it was changed the gate for 4-way operation.
I recently started to get back into fighting games after playing SFIV on a friends XBox, and now that it’s available for PC, I’m going to buy it and want to be able to use my stick. Of course, opening it up and changing the gate every time is completely impractical, but I really don’t want to spend another $100+ to get something I already have.
If I were to swap out the square gate for an octagonal one, would it work well enough for both? I know most people like square, but in 8-way mode the square gate is useless for Tetris. I feel like I could manage on an octagonal without giving up too much, and then it would be usable for SFIV as well. Has anybody else tried something like this? Am I crazy?
