Somebody please help ? need to buy Octo-gate stick, not sure if right one


#1

I am really terrible with a square-gate joystick. i can no way pull off Supers or Ultras. I need to replace the Mad Catz SE edition joystick. I found this one but im not sure if its an octogate.

JLF-TP-8YT-SK Ball Handle Joystick, 4 & 8-Way Adjustable

It says for the info…

“All JLF series sticks ship with a square gate set for 8-way operation”

This kinda threw me off. So its not adjustable to an octo-gate ? Thanks

You can replace the square gate with a GT-Y octogate. Honestly though, try to get a little more playtime with the square before you try to switch it up.

Octagon means eight sides.

All Sanwa JLF comes default with Square.
Square can be both 4-Way and 8-Way.

4-Way = UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT.
8-Way = UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, UP-LEFT, UP-RIGHT, DOWN-LEFT, DOWN-RIGHT.

The Square of a JLF can be turned 8-Way to 4-Way.

No, the default Sanwa GT-8F cannot turn into an Octagon.
How turn a four-side shape into eight-side shape?

Octagonal Restrictor Gate for JLF, it is Sanwa GT-Y.
