I siwtch back and forth on occasion so I can stay up on both. I put off from using my stick since the last time I made this thread. I just started using it again last week and i’m getting pretty good at it, but for some reason my stick just after a week of playing, seems like it’s gotten flimsy. I’m talking about the actual joystick here.
my real problem is trying to do cancels with Viper. It was very easy for me to do them on a pad with the exception of HTK cancel, but with the arcade’s button layout, it feels awkward to do.
I’m not really sure how I should set the button config actually. I have square set for lp, triangle for mp, r1 for all punches l1 for heavy punch x for lk o for mk r2 for hk and l2 for heavy kick.
The reason I have it set up like that is because I find it easier to cancel MTK with all punches being right beside it to cancel it out, but with this it makes LTK harder to cancel and I have to do a weird spread with my index and ring finger to cancel it, majority of the time I get an EX-TK to come out. The timing for that is strict. Having all three punches on l1 would be disastrous as I would have to spread my fingers immensely with it. The only benefit I’m seeing here is finally being able to do HTK cancel as I couldn’t do it on my Dualshock 3 as L2 was set for HP while L1 was all punches and it made it awkward to do.
I also got a Juri fightpad. It seems a little worse than the Dualshock 3 to me. Doing SJC BK’s isn’t as flowing with it and the controller is uncomfortably small, I expected it to be big to go along with my hands.
