Street Fighter IV Round 2 FightStick Tournament Edition failure?


#1

Hi I have a joystick for fighting games, specifically Street Fighter 4 Round 2 MADCATZ Tournament Edition … I’ve noticed that with a few months of use the lever has a little slack … if you leave it in the center position and move it slightly moves ligerament … this is normal in the Tournament Edition joystick?

thanks

That is how Sanwa JLF Joystick is.

Common wear and tear. It depends how aggressively you move the joystick around. The harder you are on your joystick, the faster it will wear down. But this dead-zone is completely normal, and as long as it’s not excessive, it shouldn’t be a problem. If it is a problem for you, you can always just replace individual components inside the stick assembly, or purchase a new Sanwa JLF assembly.
