    Re: Good substitute for the Xbox 360's d-pad?

    I understand your pain, I have this problem every-time I play MK9 at my friend's house, the 360 D-Pad just isn't that responsive.
    Solution: PS3...

    Re: Good substitute for the Xbox 360's d-pad?

    Solution=PS3=LOL,because he already owns a 360

    Solution=a fight stick,ANY fight stick will do.I just got a brand new wireless hori fightstick,WITH Tekken 6 for $40.00 (was a amazon gold deal) but you can find one w\o T6 for around the same price

    but since you dont want a fight stick (not really sure why..?) I would suggest the fighters pad by PDP,but you dont want that either (boy you are picky! xD) get the new silver 360 pad.or a ps2 to 360 converter and a ps2 pad.thats prolly the only available option left!

    Not all fighting enthusiasts need to use a fight stick or fight pad.

    I only use a fight pad for Street Fighter games.

    Get the new silver, pop-out D-pad controller for 360. It works great, and looks great.

    Re: Good substitute for the Xbox 360's d-pad?

    I have the silver 360 controller and I still find it hard to use the D pad. You have to press almost near the middle of the D pad when sliding for an down fordward move for example and lots of times if you press a little off it either doesn't respond or you end up jumping. The joystick is amazing but terrible for FF BB moves. One guy on here commented her alternates between the two but I find that to be a lil slow, maybe takes some getting use to. Do the fight pads feel like a joystick for dashing?

    Lol I know I am. To the others, I may end up getting a silver controller. I had just read some reviews where it doesnt help.

    I was just at gamestop and I ALWAYS get this same cashier lol and he is an honest guy. He'll tell you if something is crappy or not. I asked about the silver controller and he said it depends on the person if it feels better or not

    Re: Official MK9 Xbox 360 D-Pad Solution Thread

    Id suggest getting the new 360 controller with the transforming d-pad, i think it works great. Iv never had any problems playing this game that i could blame on the controller.

    Its easily the best 1st party controller on the market.

    hori or rapid fire or whatever it's called, the silver one is good but it's to stiff. that's what i use and it makes dashing a lot harder, i miss a lot of combos with it.

    Re: evil d-pad

    I have a ps3 , so no problems. I would only do street fighter for xbox. Based on its controls. Mk is more directional than sf's circular controls.

    Re: Official MK9 Xbox 360 D-Pad Solution Thread

    Try this:

    http://www.chinagreenelvis.com/brain...the-d-pad.html

    I requires a half inch washer with the middle hole about 3/16's.

    Someone tried it on the gamespot forum after i posted it and apparently it worked perfectly.

    I have not officially tried it yet but id love to hear what others who try it say.

    You must have a toddlers thumb.

    Most of my losses are due to me not being able to pull off any moves and most of the time pressing back, but instead I jump.

    I'm going to order that evil dpad if I ever figure out how to do so...

    What do you guys think of the SF4 fight pad for MK?
    I've read in some forums it works pretty well.

    I never use the D-pad anyway lol. The joystick is so much more comfortable for me. Only time the D-pad comes in is for back, back and forward, forward movements.

    But yeah I hear the new Silver controller has a great d-pad, so I'd get that if you don't want to pay all that money for one of those arcade sticks.

    I have the silver one and it does work better, but having separate buttons for directional is hell of a lot easier. Even with the silver one I would press forward and some how do a down forward move...

    Only complaint about evil is that I ordered 2 and they sent me one and a empty box and when called about it they said they would call me back in 10 minutes...well after leaving a message and several calls they finally responded about 4 hours later saying I will get one on Monday, no apology.

    I don't mean to single you out here Grew-Wolf, but i see a lot of people mentioning this controller.
    I bought the controller a while back (7-8 months or so) and the d-pad broke on me last month.
    The little plastic 'bar' that connects from the actual d-pad piece to the controller had snapped (while i wasn't playing on it, to make things worse ). I'm not sure if this is common with these controllers, but i think playing a fighting game with it might be too much for it after a while.
    Just putting in my 2 cents.
    If you'd like to try it out (was great while it lasted!) i'd recommend getting a warranty on it.

    Thanks for the sig Chood1994!
