So I broke my SE Fightstick


#1

Just thought I’d say goodbye to all considering I will probably never touch another SF game again. Gonna go sell my copy of SFIV and whatnot. Trying to get the restrictor plate off and I busted the chip underneath. So stupid. Anyway goodbye all thanks for all the help, strategies, and everything. Cheers!


#2

Knipping, what chip did you bust? The one with the 4 microswitches on the joystick or the one secured to the case?


#3

The 4 microswitches. Sorry for how vague my post was but ya - it was one of the microswitches.


#4

Oh, that stock joystick is a pain in the ass to work with dude. Just pick up a JLF or LS32 and replace the entire thing - you’ll be glad you did.

If you don’t want to do that you can have my old stock mad catz joystick PCB, just give me cost of shipping. I have no use for it - just sitting in a bag of other stock parts from previous mods. New joystick would be best though.


#5

So if I buy one of the Sanwa joysticks (such as on lizardlick) I should be good to go? That’s actually not to bad considering I hate the square gate anyway…


#6

Ya, did you already buy the octagonal restrictor gate? If you dislike the square gate and didn’t already get one buy it with the JLF as it comes stock with a square gate like the stock mad catz one did.


#7

uhh yeah, get the gt-y


#8

^^ Not the JLF-TP-8YT-SK?


#9

JLF-TP-8YT-SK is:

Joystick with a black shaft cover. Comes with square gate.

GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Plate

Is the gate you want to order along with the joystick.


#10

Never mind I get what you’re saying.


#11

get the jlf suited for the se, but get the gt-y gate too if you dislike square gates.


#12

Thanks for all the help guys I thought for sure I was screwed.


#13

By the way, if you’re ordering a new joystick - go ahead and order some buttons as well since you’ll have the stick opened up anyway.


#14

hrmm juss wonderin why dont u like the square? do u play with QCF type chars?


#15

@Kazijuro - I plan to order buttons also, yes

@SIKWIDIT510 - Yep, usually main Rufus but I throw some Gouken in there to mix things up.


#16

Cool to see you sticking with it, you’ll be glad you did :tup:


#17

^^ I never planned on leaving before my stick broke. I love the game a ton but I was not gonna spend another 100 bucks on a new stick. Luckily, now I don’t have to! Will have to wait awhile for parts though. Is lizardlick the fastest as far as getting your parts?


#18

Lizard Lick is all I’ve bought from but you’ll wait a good 2-3 weeks, others have said modchipman and gamingnow ship out fairly quickly in comparison.


#19

Gamingnow is beastly with shipping, took an average of three days for my orders. Good thing about the madcatz sticks is should anything break, its easy to replace.


#20

Ah damn I ordered from lizardlick. Hopefully it won’t take too long, I wanna get back to kickin’ ass with Rufus. Again, thanks a lot for all the help guys.
