Super edition is the Same as regular except it doesn't have to white bezel thing on the sides.Thinks it's a bit skinnier as well.

Is it the TE your having problems with..If its loose it sounds like a spring.

What do you mean by mounting. The mounting plate on TE is welded to bottom of lid?

i have a hrap2.
i dont know what the problem is, the mounting is not lose [its not like the stick wiggles] but the stick is not accurate, its too OILY , if that makes sense.
You can feel hitting the 4 edges like you wont in a TE, with the clicking noise.
[its not an octo gate] but it might aswell be

Hi!

I ordered the replacement LS part for my stick. Plugged it in, it doesn't work. Am i to assume that it's a pcb failure? All other functions on the stick work, buttons and home, start and select etc.

Have you tried flipping the connector around?

Hi Kiki,

yeh i tried that, i tested the LS on another stick and it works fine. Does that mean it's either the connector or the soldering on the pcb or the pcb itself?

If the stick itself is fine, then it is either the connector (at either the PCB end, or the stick end) being loose/faulty; OR the PCB's directions have died.

I'm guessing it's probably just the former.
Try re-seating your connectors on the TE PCB.

Its not a TE its a custom stick. It uses a standard xbox controller pcb that has been soldered. I have both a spare connector and spare pcb but i've never soldered before and don't want to wreck the stick cus it really is pretty.

Any ideas? Could i snip the old connector to test the new 1 or do i have to solder?

Cheers for all the help tho Kiki! i'd be lost otherwise

I've read through this thread and didnt see anyone ask something like this.
Basically I want to get an arcade stick because the xbox controller just doesnt feel right. I plan to use it playing SFIV and MvC3 when it comes out. I presume something like a mad catz stick will work with both? Any suggestions on which one to go look at for a beginner?

Yup, it'll work with both.

Id suggest a madcatz standard edition (SE) if money is an issue and if not a tournament edition (TE).

SE's are fine but you'll wear the parts out if you play in any way regularly, so if you're sure you'll keep the stick, might as well go for the TE.

The following is a personal opinion:

The Hori Ex 2, is to me a better option for a cheap stick than the SE, Which I have a personal dislike of.
The Ex 2 is usually cheaper. It's hard to mod, but if your looking for an entry stick, and don't want to go all out for a TE I'd recommend it.

IMO harder to mod is important for a noob.

I'm awful at modding, but when the buttons went on my SE as a noob I managed to replace them with semitsus.
