Hello all, first post
I played SF2 when I was a kid, but didn’t touch fighting games since. I stumbled on Sirlin’s play to win guide and decided to try them out again. I downloaded SF4 vanilla about three weeks ago and just loved it so I decided to jump right in. I did some research here and read reviews and decided to grab the MC TE stick, the box says “Round 2” and “20th Anniversary edition”, as well as a ‘letter of authenticity’ noting that it was built with Sanwa Denshi parts. I’ve had it for a week and already the gate on the stick is wearing. I was practicing my specials with vega and noticed that while I could easily do 10-20 ST’s in a row facing left, I couldn’t apply the same timing when facing right. At first I thought it was just me but after some serious frustration I did a test. The gate clicks immediately when pressed left, when pressed right it has just a hair more play before it registers the right command, which is enough to throw me off immensely! Anyone else had this happen? Did I buy a melon? Should I send it back? Are there decent replacement parts that aren’t going to destroy my wallet? I’ve already dropped more than my monthly gaming budget on this thing.
All responses are much appreciated.
