I modded my TE stick to make it a lefty stick. Originally, I bought a panel with the buttons on the left and stick on the right from Art’s Hobbies, and it worked great, but I raged and broke it. I played the stick upside down for months, and then I was able to get another panel custom made.
After I got the stick set up for lefty again, a strange thing started to happen: when playing UMvC3, I would get X-factors at random. At first, I thought I was just hitting ABCS and not realizing it, after it happened about 5 times I realized something was wrong. The problem is intermittent–I cannot duplicate it at will. I have noticed that it happens when I am doing something that involves two attack buttons–I always use A and X for wavedashing, supers and such. I tried changing out those buttons with the wires, but the problem persists.
It seemed like it was only happening online, but after playing for a LONG time in training mode I finally got it to happen–twice. The first time I checked the input display and it showed LMHS, even though I know I only hit the A and X buttons. The letters LMHS weren’t stacked like they normally are when I activate X-factor in training mode, they were one after the other. The second time it only showed HL (stacked) in the input display.
I examined the PCB that all the button wires are connected to, as well as the other (main?) PCB, and as far as I could tell, there weren’t any crossed contacts or anything. I am out of ideas, and this is driving me absolutely nuts. Does anybody have any idea what could be the problem?
