So I just bought a used SF4 Round 2 Tourney FightStick (original stick and buttons). I like it a lot, but would buying the IL Stick and IL buttons at LizardLick make anything even better, like response time? I would rather use the bat top then the ball top, but that's more cosmetic.
Last stick i had was the Sega Virtual Stick on Saturn and threw it away after half an hour
This time i will try to master the controls with a stick, if i like it and decide to keep the stick i will order the IL stick and competition buttons.
Then i will see what suits me best, or swap the buttons or just replace the switches wich come with the comp buttons.
Hey guys. Just looking for some general info before I order my parts from lizardlick. What is the benefit of cherry micro-switches over the E-switches that come with the Happ competition buttons? I know the actuating force is different but what are the actual benefits in laymans terms. Also does the IL bat top stick come with the micro-switches? If so are they cherrys or E-switches? I'd check myself but my phone doesn't run their website. Any other tips and advice on this swap is also welcome. Thanks in advance.
I've been working on a tutorial video (nothing fancy) to help people out with their mod. It's a mix of videos and his res stills with text. The audio kind of sucked, so there will be text for you to follow an understand what is going on. Pretty basic and easy to follow.
A lot of these questions have been answered already, but at that ktownbralwlers link, I kept updating the info as people kept leaving comments asking similar/same questions. Stop by to check it out.
I have also re-modified my stick once my parts came in from lizardlick. An iL euro joystick that came w/cherry microswitches and comp pushbuttons (all orange to match the stick)
Answers to a few questions asked:
1) You can reuse the stock joystick hub (base) as its Happ, and just install the iL euro top w/the cherry microswitches and while you're doing that, you may want to install a heavy spring (if you want a stiffer joystick)
2) The difference between the switches (e-switch vs cherry) other than the grams of pressure and spring/lever used... is preference really. Not much of a difference that you can actually feel other than one is 'lighter' while the other is 'heavier' in terms of force when hitting the buttons. Some people prefer the softer/lighter feel for 'quicker' response. I prefer Cherry over the E-switch because it's what I've been use to for over 20 years, lol.
3) You can still order Cherry microswitches via ebay. Last I checked, lizardlick was still out of stock, but you can order from them too.
4) Competition pushbuttons ordered from Happs are iL, but with E-switch in them. Not many people use/order competition pushbuttons, so a lot of their stock are from pre-merge in 2006.
In stock now: http://www.lizardlick.com/Happ-Cherr...als_p_617.html
Received my fightstick today
Switches are Zippy ?!
Are those on the same level as Cherry switches, or E-switches as well ?
Quit strange they use different switches on the same product, maybe some old stock ?
Stick came from Canada btw

A little off-topic, but since I'm not crazy into Fighting Games (Mortal Kombat is it), I'm wondering if any of these fight sticks will do the trick (PS3) or if anyone has any other reccomendations in the same price range ($60 or cheaper after shipping).
Tekken 6 + Fight Stick ($81)
PS3 Mini Fight Stick
WWE All Stars Fight Stick (a little out of my range, but it is MadCatz)
Last night i put an iL competition stick and real competition buttons into my PDP TE stick, so now it no longer feels like my hands are being sodomized when I use it. However, I'm picking up some lumber this week so I can start making a completely new control panel for the stick with a more ergonomic and versatile button layout, as well as the ability to use Japanese parts (yes, after many years of Happ / iL loyalty, I'm selling out and getting a Sanwa JLF and Seimitsu buttons). I'll probably make up more of these custom control panels to sell them to members of the kommunity, however I don't know what price range I should be looking at yet. How much do you guys think that that a kustom kontrol panel for the PDP TE stick would be worth?
So for my Sf4 round 2 TE stick, I really didn't like the feel of the joystick. My problems were the looseness, the square gate, and the ball top. I recently bought a Seimitsu LS-56-01, an octagonal gate, an extra spring, and a bat top. I already have the LS-56-01 and the bat top, and the gate and spring will arrive tomorrow. Can't wait to put it in and test it out.
HI everyone I just bought an SF4 TE stick used and i was wondering if this harness for the joystick is really worth it? (http://www.lizardlick.com/JLF-TE-Har...cks_p_615.html) since alot of you seem to be more experience with fight sticks. I was also wondering if lizardLick is the best place to get Sanwa buttons? Thanks in advance.
