Saturn stick by ascii have optical stick?


I’ve heard that the SNK and Capcom and a few other ascii sticks had optical sticks in them, anyone know if the saturn one has it also?

alright, thanks final_cut


I had that stick, and it was terrible. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t optical.


I had that stick and it was absolutely UN-USEABLE for either Streetfighter Alpha 2 or Virtua Fighter. If it has an optical stick it’s the world’s worst ever.


That stick looks like it uses the same insides as a game pad. Basically rubber pads with some black conductive material. I have a similar cheesy universal Pelican stick that doesn’t use any microswitches.


That stick has the rubber buttons to circuit board setup but the stick itself is microswitch. I didn’t find it too bad at all for SF.


Back in the day we didn’t need sticks. Sega Saturn pad FTW.

Sticks are definitely better tho.
