I posted in the Electric Trouble section of this forum subject before regarding my joystick.
Anyway, the joystick broke down, and now I am unable to get it fixed. I have had help from an awesome guy. Unfortunately though, he was unable to fix it. I do really appreciate his efforts.
I write this thinking two things, I either have to buy a new joystick and play SF4 with that or just quit the game altogether. I am an unemployed student whom have spent about $160 on the broken stick. The person who made it is now unable to help due to having circumstances (I understand). Another gentleman was about to help me out but due to school, he is too busy to do so.
So my question is: Is there anyone in the Bay Area willing to look at and fix my arcade stick? I am willing to pay up to $60 for doing so. I really can’t afford anymore than that.
Ed at arcade the box contacted me regarding helping, but he is currently slammed plus, with the shipping and repair, I’m not sure I can manage the repair costs considering he is in AZ.
The issue with the stick is that it does not move right. The medium kick button sometimes does not work. I have replacement sanwa buttons if it turns out to be the button, but I’m thinking it’s the wiring cause I already tried replacing it myself.
I’m just sad cause I spent all this money only to be frustrated playing the game I really love to play. I have a pad now, but it’s not working as well for me as the stick did.
So… if there is no response to this post in the next two weeks, I guess maybe it’s time I hang up the game. I guess I’m at that point with it if anything due to the controller and such.
If anyone is willing to help, please let me know. I’m not crying out looking for attention, but rather, I’m just a frustrated gamer who wants to enjoy a game and get value out of something he spent his hard earn money on. Thanks for listening!
