I just built my second stick and I decided to use Seimitsu LS-32 stick this time. Last build I used all Happ parts as that was what I was used from years of arcade gaming in the U.S. I really want to transition over to Japanese sticks and I might construct a Sanwa as well just to see how it feels in comparison.
What I basically want to ask people is for any advice on making the switch. Is there any particular way people hold Japanese sticks to get the most effective movements out of them? Any particular way to do specific motions (i.e. quarter circles, half circles, 360’s)?
I notice that I get stuck in the corners a lot which seems fairly common for people making the switch. I am able to do DP motions just fine after a bit of practice, its just the circular motions that are giving me trouble. Should I make a more conscious effort to not get stuck in the corners when doing these kinds of motions?
Any input would be appreciated.
