Just played against a pro... one of my friends from Florida. This guy is the real deal. I was hoping for practice but ... I still have yet to build the stick. I will not get serious until I build it, to hell with using the regular controller. I refuse to build up skill with a shitty controller just to switch to the stick later. But I playing against my friend makes me realize how far off I am.

 

Shoma... if I see him and you both on at the same time, I'll attempt to get an endless battle going. You deserve to play against someone who is actually good. Just... I hope you take loosing gracefully. When I kept kicking you in the face with Sagat you got pissy. My friend is the real deal. Expect a beatdown if and when this day comes.

 

As for that movie... meh. Great cameras! Their choreography was poor among other things, but the cameras were good.

 

Verestic... multiplatforming? From 0 to 2 systems in such a short time... heh. Well Im game.

 

 

So is a stick going to make you an ultimate player??

 

I hope you have at least some experience with a stick (Sanwa or Happ?) before you make a statement like that. A couple of the best players in the world do so on pad, so its not as shitty as you think

Really? Maybe cuz I was hosting, it was pretty laggy for me lol. Yeah sorry, Finland.

Yeah, it was smooth as silk for me. I can host next, so we'll see if that makes a difference.

ACTUALLY ... The 360 controller is crap. Thats what I'm talking about. I've always been a pad player but this joystick is a pet project. Do I have experience playing on a stick? No. But that does not matter. I could have bought a 3rd party pad but whatever.

 

The joy is a Sanwa JLF with an octagon gate and some seimetsu buttons. I bought "silent" microswitches for the joy and replaced them. I know being proficient on a joy is gonna be tedious. Most of my experience is on a pad so it's a new ballgame.

 

I just wanted the best joy possible. I really dont want to play on such a bad controller.

Not sure what your total costs were for your project but you should have just gotten a sf4 tournament stick. Basically the best you can get on the market unless your going custom. I'm used to american happ sticks and recently bought a sf4 tourney stick which is all japanese parts and its killing me. The simple transition between bat top and ball top isnt going as smoothly as I though it would but I have a friend who motivates me to keeping on using it.

 

First thing I would do in your place is figure out how you are comfortable holding the stick.

 

 

Above is a good video for starters

 

Once from there its all practice, good luck.

Hit up Lizardlick.com and get yourself a Bat top and adapter. total cost will be around 10 bucks. Also if you are used to Happ and are now on a square gate that can be murder as well. an Octagonal gate will feel more like the 360 gate on a happ.

 

My TE is modded with an octogan gate, bat top and 2 hole plugs on the lower arched buttons. so I have an amarican straight 6 button layout.

Yeah, timezones are a bitch. Makes it really difficult to coordinate matches and such with a very specific group of people

Thanks have been planning that but never got around to ordering new parts. I been forcing myself to learn this way but usually I end up frustrated and the controller in the closet.

 

I play well enough on pad when I'm focused that people usually think I'm on a stick but I would love to take it to that next level

The main reason Im building a custom is the button layout on most/all joys.

The two offset buttons are still something im working on. 6 buttons is enough but a game like Soul Caliber would benefit me if I were to place a thumb button.

 

With a layout similar to this, My hand can lay naturally. Cost of materials was around ~ $110, but that includes the wood I used and its expensive. This custom stick will be great... Ill have no excuses once its built. I'll need to practice a ton to get used to it im sure.

Good luck with the build, I've seen enough of them to know that anything is possible with the right amount of motivation.
