Question about X-Arcade Sticks


#1

I’m planning on entering EVO for the first time this year, but I play with an X-Arcade joystick using a dreamcast adaptor. Will I be allowed to use this in the tournament? Sorry if this is a newbie question, I just kinda need to know if I have to budget another controller to compete with. X_x

you will need to purchase a ps2 adapter or a ps2 stick if you plan on entering anything other than mvc2

off the top of my head. tekken, cvs2, third strike, super turbo are all run on ps2


#3

Yeah those are all on PS2, so if I get ahold of a PS2 adaptor there won’t be anything against me using it?


#4

No reason you wouldn’t be able to use it. Send me a PM sometime before Evo and as long as I’m still in a giving mood I may have an extra stick you can borrow and use for the tournament.

Thanks for the input guys. Just wanted to make sure I wouldn’t have to switch to the normal controller again. X_x


#6

Are you allowed to use normal controllers? My arcade stick isn’t going to arrive in time.

tetsuya: might i give you advice and ditch those x-arcades? seriously, you’ll thank me later =)


#8

I plan on bringing my own shit if it’s allowed.

HAPP competition sticks, US style HAPP buttons, Cherry horizontal switches, and BOY PCB w/ PS2 adapter.

(I’ve only used PS2 for DVD playback)

Yeah…I got the chance to play on some Hori sticks at Devastation.

I can see what you were talking about now.

Oh well. Any suggestions on new sticks I should invest in?
