Okay, I was playing KOF 98 the last few days in my Candy cab, and I was NOT able to pull moves off very well, which pisses me off since I play fighters all the time. So, I bought a round actuator, hoping that would help. It didn’t.
Before I continue, all my other fighters aren’t this picky. MOTW, Last Blade… they all work great.
So, finally, I said the hell with it, and took the actuators out all together. The feel is a little looser, and not as strict (obviously), but if I wasn’t pulling moves off faster and at 100% of the time. It was that stupid actuator that was prohibiting my moves from coming out.
My question is this: Do I even NEED the actuators in there? They don’t hold the joystick in or anything, they just restrict movement. Will I harm the stick to use it just as is? I can pull moves off all day long now, but I don’t want to damage my Sanwa ball tops in the proecess. (can’t see how I would/could, but I thought I’d ask)
