Problems with two sticks

There are two sticks I’m having trouble with right now.

  1. First is my tekken stick, for some reaosn, I have to press certain buttons extra hard at times for the stick to register them. So if I’m in the middle of a heated match and I get unlucky and forget to press a button hard enough, nothing happens. Should I just mod the buttons? (I was going to do that anyways, but got lazy)

  2. Second is my MAS stick, the wire has to be positioned in a certain way for the stick to register. It’s odd. So if the wire isn’t positioned in that way, the PS2 doesn’t sense another controller in there. I’m guessing the only way to fix it is to send it to MAS Systems. (Last time I did this, it took like 5 weeks or something). Any ideas?

the tekken stick u should swap out the buttons and the stick
i had 2 of the t5 sticks that use to get mvc2 play regularaly and that same thing happened

the mas stick if its ps2 only just have someone on here wire u up a ps1 ds board with quick disconects
and if u use it for dc as well just scoop an adapter
