I purchased a Tatsunoko Fight stick. Its very decent. I have no complaints, it gets the job done well.
But I do have a question.
Sometimes when doing a quarter circle forward movement on the stick, if i go in a straight line from down to forward, it does not always register the down forward or down back portion of the movement.
if you specifically push deeper into the corners as you pass, it registers fine.
has anyone ever tried to increase the sensitivity of the down forward and down back positions on a joystick? as ghetto as it sounds, I bet if you could add a slight thickness to either the bottom of the stick or the directional register buttons, so that they trigger 10-15 percent easier. I wouldnt have to push as deep into corners to register DF and DB.
Anyone ever tried anything like this? I had two ideas that revovle around slicing the aluminum from an old soda can. I bet one or two layers of aluminum would provide just the right spacing distance.
mounting the aluminum onto the button face or stick base would probably be a little easier than it sounds. build a tiny cap for the buttons, or wrap one layer around the stick base.
Ghetto as it sounds, I might try it X_x
Ill probably just buy a sanwa stick when I can.
any other ideas on how to decrease the throw needed on the stick (by like 10 - 15 percent) needed to reach DF DB ?
