Look up DIY Vewlix.
First Korean styled lever I've used and it's a pretty big learning curve after using just a stock Hayabusa for a while. The tension and diagonals are the biggest things to adjust to. But it's a lot of fun to use so far.
I keep linking this one because it's just a great price:
The real answer is "it depends." For me it was pretty easy, but I grew up in arcades (albeit on American style Happ perfect 360s and such) and also have spent a lot of time learning different control schemes for all manner of weird games. Even with that, it took a lot of practice to get consistent with certain motions on a Japanese stick with a square gate, and I'm still pretty bad at SPDs. You will probably be bad at first and might not like it, but if you stick to it and practice it can be a really enjoyable and rewarding process. I wouldn't say it's hard, but it probably takes a fair bit of dedication.
It will take some time, but I wouldn't say hard. But you have to keep at it. No going back to pad when you get frustrated.
I started using a stick a year and a half a go. It took a few months to get used to it and then a few more months to be able to walk into a local tournament and not look like an idiot. I can't go back now and I like it a lot. The first year was learning and this year has been making, modifying and designing custom sticks to dial into what I like.
It's not hard, but depending on your prior experience using sticks, it will take time and practice to re-learn muscle memory. It might take a few weeks of regular use before it clicks with you. The important thing is you use the stick exclusively.
That RAP is tempting but I've only ever used Sanwa sticks and buttons.I keep linking this one because it's just a great price:
I noticed amazon warehouse had some razer evos in stock:
TBH, they're fairly close. They're somewhere in the middle between Sanwa and Seimitsu, IMO, leaning a lot more towards the Sanwa feel. It's usually not hard to get used to different levers and buttons, but if not, you could eventually swap them.
I have Mayflash Saturn-to-PC/PS3 adapter and everything-to-Switch adapter and they both work fine. I haven't felt any noticeable input lag caused by either adapter.Any recommendations for a cheap adapter solution to use older generation sticks (PS3/360/PS2) on the Xbox one? I can't buy any more new sticks because I've got too many!
I've seen a couple of Brook solutions but leaning towards the Mayflash Ultimate because it seems more versatile.
Also seen some $20 PS2 to Xbone adapters on Aliexpress but no idea if they're any good.
Appreciate the recommendation. I think this Mayflash is out of print so that takes it off the table.
Yes.So does this one have good quality? I have never purchased an arcade stick for a home console, but I am comfortable with whatever would have been in the arcades in the 90's on a SF or MK machine. I don't even play soul caliber. $104
Thanks. The location of the DS4 d-pad is killing me, I am always fumbling into he stick and then I try to use that and that sucks cause I fumble into the PS button. If you don't mind a follow up question, if you have any idea, is this going to feel large enough for a guy with big hands? I know this is really general or vague but maybe you have some insight.
I think you should be fine. There's a good distance between the lever and buttons, and the body is fairly spacious unlike say, the RAP 4/V.Thanks.

of course it is, I just bought one last week T_T

If you can deal with it being wired only, a UFB would fit that bill at least. You have to hold down specific buttons while plugging it in for Switch though, unless that has changed with recent firmware.Oh baby, wireless (and wired) Brook board for PS3/PS4/Switch (and hopefully/presumably other platforms like PC/Mac/iOS/Android through PS4 controller support?):
Only reason I'd hold off on this for my next stick would be wanting 360 support for the shmups I have on there.
I ordered one. Seems like a great deal!

Yeah I already have the UFB for my sticks, the ideal is basically like a wireless UFB...which this is so very close to. Are there PS3/4 to 360 adapters? When I looked it seemed like everything was for the other way around.
Probably two Brooks converters. Their universal fighting board would be easier in practice (changing the board in the stick), but costs a bit more.
TBH, by the time you buy two $35-$40 adapters, the Brook board is only another $15 or so and it would be native, at that point. I love my adapters for other controllers but I put a UFB into my stick because it served a higher purpose.
I have my own scenario I"m struggling with regarding this. I'm building an arcade cabinet with a PC/XB1/PS4 in it, and using my existing TE2+ PS4 sticks. I'm getting a USB switch to flip controls between each device, but I still need to figure out the compatibility issue.
