TE S+ SFV PS3/PS4 Thread


#1

Editing the name, because it isn’t really about the button placement anymore.

Original post:
The mockups are actually different from the real thing. The mockups cover the bolt at the top with the huge panel. In reality they lower the panel and the buttons/stick as a result - meaning less wrist space.

Mockup on product page

Reality

Probably amounts to about a half an inch, but wrist space is wrist space.


#2

it is pointless to debate or speculate until someone ether compares the new TE-S Plus to the older TE-S or someone breaks out a ruler and take measurements.


#3

I’m not speculating, I’m basing it off my TES+

No ruler available, but I can measure at some point. It is about a half an inch.

I hate this stick. The placement of the turbo panel is just bad.


#5

Damn thats dissapoinring.
Any chance of giving us a peek on the inside? Maybe someone will produce a replacement cp at some point witch rearanges things slightly.


#6

That turbo panel is HUGE! Way too big. Should have been 60% of that size and in the corner.


#7

There also no reason to include the L3 and R3 buttons


#8

Isn’t used for ‘push to talk’ chat options on PC?


#9

Who cares about the PC version? The PC version can assign chat options to the keyboard.
This a arcade controller intended for the PS4.
Do you need it for chat on the PS4?


#10

Quick question, without making my own thread. How easy is it to change the artwork on this stick? Does it have a clear plexi layer like the TE2 has?


#11

It does not.


#12

That said, its not hard


#13

Agreed. The layout is just… off-putting. Glad I went for a 2+.


#14

Honestly, playing on it is totally fine. I’m just annoyed the art - which is still up on the MadCatz store and Amazon doesn’t match the real product.


#15

I havent heard anyone complain about accidentally hitting the panel.

Hows the wrist space? I really like the TE2+ but I hear this one is much more sturdier and doesnt creak.


#16

Wrist space is fine to me. It is much more sturdy than my original TE2


#17

Is there a non slip material in the bottom? I’m trying to upgrade my hrap 4 because that thing slides right down my lap.


#18

making a plexi for this might be a annoying if you’re gonna use 1/32 thickness, that whole area where the upper middle bolt is can be an area where it bows a lot. or be a weak spot (cracking) if you’re not careful on thicker plexi (1/16"). to be safe maybe a thicker plexi, but that would make it protrude a lot, so probably a full-size no bezel plexi would work better. my 2c.


#19

Yep there is.
You can always just buy adhesive foam for the bottom of your stick, something like:

Mine also has white buttons for start and select on the back, instead of the dark grey ones it has on the pictures.

I wonder to anyone who also has this stick, on mine the LP button (=square) is a little harder to press than the others and also makes a different, more dampend sound.
I wonder if this is normal or is just on my stick?
