I can’t believe this… I got a bit of a static shock when I jumped up quickly and hit the Start button to pause. When I got back none of the buttons worked except for the home. I restarted my PS3 and now all the buttons work, but the joystick isn’t responding (in any mode).
At this point I’m pissed, but figure I might have some how touched the metal shaft on the joystick and fried the JLF’s PCB… okay, that sucks, but I can fix that with a few mods. So I quickly swap out the cable and connect it to the stock MadCatz stick PCB and it still isn’t working. The goddamn main PS3 PCB is fried at the joystick connection!
Fortunately I had a spare SE from a screw up at BN.com, but now I’ve got to take that off auction if I want to play any SFIV.
Seriously though, WTF? Are we supposed to use grounding wrist-straps to play with this Mad Catz shit?
