If it’s down to him, I shall, trying to find some local 416/905’ers at the moment to see if they can shave/modify the 360 PCB into a PS controller somehow first
It’s been a recurring problem playing SSFIV with my friend and either:
A) The converter is wonky so random inputs come out or the home menu pops up
B) The R1 trigger frequently gets stick under the case
There should really be a sticky for modders and stick availability in one thread here for Canadians.
Yup, luckily at Heroes World, there’s enough gear to try out. He’s tried the Fightpad, EX2 Pro pad and FC3. The problem is that he’s very accustomed to the Dual Shock pad so all other pads aren’t to his liking(mine too if I were still playing pad). Also the FC3 is the closest thing but for 40 or so dollars, dual modding would be pricey so why not just get a stick?
Maybe when he starts to learn MvC3, my Q3 RAF will be the loaner and he’ll start to like using a stick enough to buy his own.
Dude, I’m just trying to find someone to sell me a custom wooden arcade stick to me. I’m in Ontario and people either won’t ship here or they want $200+. I already have all the parts I just want to use the stuff I bought. I have a friend with a workshop for woodworking that was going to help me make one but he’s since been going through some stuff with his wife and I don’t want to bother him with it now. I even gave him parts to make his own in return. So I’m willing to just leave it and buy from someone else for now and make another one for a 2nd player later on. :s
I don’t just want to buy a fightstick, I want something with an IL stick, concave Happ buttons and cherry switches (I have all those).
It’s alot easier now to buy a stick than it was 8/9 years ago.
Canada has it easy compared to Europe, at least with Canada people from the US and Japan are willing to ship to you.
And if you are not in Western Europe (UK, France, Germany, Ect) the factor increases exponentially.
Its even worst in you live in places like Brazil, where there like a 300% import tax owned on all imports, and why ether Japanese companies license off to local companies to make cheap knock offs or just refuse to do business there.
There gamers from countries that wish they have it as good as Canada. Paying $200 on what is in the US a $150 stick isn’t that bad when you factor someone in Greece, Brazil or South Africa looking at $300/$400 for the same stick. Canada even has it better than Australia, and Australia is geographically closer to Japan.
