SSFIV - Arcade Sticks Question


#1

Hi Guys,

I bought a Mad Catz “Street Fighter IV TE Round 2” Arcade Stick a couple of days ago online before realising that the S-Type TE Stick was now available.

I was kinda dissapointed as I felt that I had ordered an inferior stick to the S-Type. Was just wondering if my stick is actually worse than the S-Type and if I should order an S-Type.

Thanks :smile:

Yea it’s def subpar to the S-type, if you wanna get rid of it i’ll glady take it off your hands. If not i’d just throw it out.


#3

yeah, those original TE-style sticks sure are inferior. totally.


#4

it has the exact same components except it comes in a newer box

its only inferior because its not a hori


#5

Straight answer, its not inferior, its simply thicker. Keep it, its an arcade stick. They do not become obsolete.


#6

It is just looks.
There is no difference.

Okay, so the TE S also locks Start Back/Select when Guide/Home Lock.
TE before TE S not do that.

Okay, so the TE S has solder point for Guide move one pin over on the PCB.
TE before TE S did not do that.
