Shumps(happ vs swana/)


#1

jap style sticks are preferred right for shrumps?

or whats your guys take on this.

how would a happ with a heavy spring work?


#2

I think most SHMUP players prefer Seimitsus.


#3

IMO, Japanese sticks are definitely preferred because they have less resistance. So, the questions isn’t, “Happ or Sanwa” its, “Seimitsu or Sanwa”.

Seimitsu sticks are supposesdly quicker because they have a smaller dead zone.

you need short throw joystick >6,5mm
Magnetick joystick
Joystick (4-8 Ways) Spring Action (t-stick)
Suzo universal STC
Suzo Universal Inductive
JLW-TM-8 (but only jap ver. Akihabra or RS2006)
LS40 or LS32 (but it is medium throw, LS40 has faster engage:) but softer spring:( )

forget about Happ stick, do not buy them!

personaly I use Universal Inductive best stick for shmups ever. All electronic joystick they are better for shmups


#5

thanks, ima check into that.


#6

This shmup player uses LS-40 and LS-32


#7

What’s the difference between those two? Next to Streetfighter/KOF I play Touhou games so I’m very interested.


#8

IMO the LS-40 seems tighter and less rugged compared to the LS-32. LS-32 would be my first choice but if I did not have it around at the time, I would be perfectly fine with a LS-40.
