ONGOING LIST/ WHAT CONDITION DID YOUR SFIV TE STICK ARRIVE IN? (Owners only)


#1

Alright I was trying to see if anyone else with more clout on SRK would do this but I want to know and I don’t care if I get an infraction, banned or whatever so here we go…
Only owners of the TE sticks need post here and you have to actually have taken receipt of your stick. Items to be listed are below:

Username: benjiedude
Platform ordered: PS3 or XBOX 360
Date ordered and from where: ie. 1/16/09 from VGC
Date received and how: mailed or pick up from store
Cosmetic dissatisfaction: scratched acrylic, cover not flush, stripped screws, side panel coming apart, buttons scratched, scuffing of any kind, grease on buttons or screws, etc. BASICALLY ANYTHING YOU DON"T LIKE VISUALLY.
Major problems: directional stick not working in any given direction, sticking, any buttons are dead, buttons might not be Sanwa (already reported that this could not be the case). ANYTHING THAT CAUSES THE PRODUCT TO NOT WORK AS IT SHOULD OR ADVERTISED THIS INCLUDES THINGS YOU THINK YOU COULD FIX YOURSELF BUT WOULD HAVE TO VOID THE WARRANTY TO FIX.

This should help a lot of the retarded arguments and anxiety going on the other stick thread. Again, ban me or close this thread but I think it’s needed. This is a template for how you should post, not my own actual post since I have not received my stick as of 2/11.
Of course if you haven’t had any problems with your stick just put “None” under dissatisfaction and Major problems. Not looking to badmouth Madcatz here. As a matter of fact I’ll say right here and now that only the facts are needed. Markman and Seth should be commended for pushing the design of such an awesome stick.

*Just noticed somebody finally started a thread for condition/defects for SE Sticks. Go there to report on those. Again, TE’s only here. http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=176026

Date received and how: 2/11/09 from UPS.
Cosmetic dissatisfaction: minor scratch and scuff marks all over, not visible from playing distance but from close inspection, they are every where. Looks like a refurbished or previously played unit. Screws used to hold the bottom panel to the case are ALL STRIPPED. It seem like either it has been opened with the wrong size philips screwdriver or some one used too much force on them. All STRIPPED screws do not mount flush (ie. all of them stick out so if you run your hands over them, you will get cut by all the protruding screw heads. WTF, it seemed that the bottom panel has been put together by someone with zero clue on how to use a screwdriver.
Major problems: None So far.

Hit the limit of characters in a post guys. The list continues on over on page 7…


#2

Hook us up with some pics/vids man.


#3

Can I suggest that you add platform (PS3/360) to the list? They probably aren’t rolling off the same lines or handled by the same workers so it’d be interesting to track that trend as well.


#4

Fixed to show platform.


#5

Sorry if I confused you man. I didn’t actually get my stick yet. It’s just an example for posting format.


#6

Good thread if used properly! I’ll be posting my info as soon as mine arrives.


#7

Got a feeling this thread might get shut down since the stick has been so hyped by the SRK staff. Just a hunch.

#10

Let’s try to just post the info needed so it’s more organized and less posts to sift through when we look over the stats. Thanks.


#11

i think its unfair to madcatz to just post defects as it gives a bad sample of how many ppl have problems with their product. this can turn alot of ppl away… when there are some of us who got perfect sticks. I think ppl should see an equal view rather than just a bash/dissatisfaction thread.

Mine just doesn’t work on the PC


#13

Can you please use the format like I listed. It gives everyone looking here good info that could help identify if a particular vendor starts to ship bad sticks or perhaps more PS3 TE sticks are bad as opposed to 360 sticks, etc. These are just a couple examples but it helps if you use the format. Thanks.

#18

I’m not going to put it in that format…but I can tell you, this stick has some weird issues.

I got mine today out of the box with one button messed up, not working (R2).

I opened it up, everything was connected. Apparently the ground and the lead were switched, but they should still work, so I switched that. Here is where it gets interesting…

I use a stick with INPIN, then I switched to this stick. Nothing works. I can only press the HOME key and go to normal functions, but am unable to use the buttons/stick when I switched to the ANniversary Stick.

Another game I started with the Anniversary Stick, and when I played online before my first match of STHD, it would not move at all. I can’t even play the game basically with the stick because it’s going nuts.

Another time, I had to move the Control Stick Switch to the right just so I could play Tekken DR because nothing was working, but I am not sure if Tekken only uses digital…

Regardless, the stick is going nuts for some reason…it’s one thing for mystery buttons to not work, but it’s another for it to just stop working completely.

Another gripe I have…I understand the need to put Select Start OFF the face area of the stick because people “accidentally” press the buttons supposedly, but why would you put them on the top base of the stick? I lean the stick AGAINST something so it has more of a base and force in the front, but now I can’t do that because it will randomly press START while I am playing…at the very least they should have been placed on the bottom area far off to the right or something…that’s a huge gripe for me…

I’m going to do some more testing, but if you are in a tournament, and you switch from stick to stick, and the AE stick won’t even work if you have someone else wanting to use that stick after a match, and you have to reset the PS3 each time, that’s a major problem…

Man, I got my 360 TE last night. I still haven’t opened it yet. Now I am afraid after reading all these defect reports. Gonna open it tonight and give it a good test drive… I will report back my results tomorrow.
