Re: Has Anyone Tried It With An Arcade Stick Yet?

I just tried it with my fight pad (basically has the same configuration as a fight stick, but just on a smaller pad), and there's one huge problem I'm having with mine: L2 and R2 buttons aren't functional.

 

They don't work. At all. And I know it's not a problem with the controller, because I tried playing it with other games and those 2 buttons worked just fine. But only in PSASBR does this happen.

 

Anyone else have similar problems with a stick?

This really isn't the type of fighter you use an arcade stick with. This game, like Smash Brothers, was made for the systems home controller. (or gamecube controller when talking smash brothers)

They may have done this purpose in order to avoid unbalanced playing fields like in MK9. This way any player has the potential to win based on practice, knowledge, and natural skill. It allows people to rely less on material things like that to win.

I'm a little confused by that. I mean I literally cannot use the R2/L2, which means I can't use supers when I use the fight pad.

Sure I could just map them to other buttons, but no matter what I do I still won't have a complete moveset because 2 buttons aren't functional.

 

I doubt this was intentional; why would SuperBot deactivate the most important button in the game for stick players?

My friend tried it during the Beta, I believe. He said that this game was like MK9 to him: Really fun but a game you should play with controller.

Though I stand by my statement that Heihachi should be played with an arcade stick to be played 100% correctly.

I just played through Heihachi's character & combo tutorials to learn his moves, and I couldn't agree more. He plays fine on a controller, but it was much easier pulling his moves off with a fight pad (or fight stick; basically anything with a 6 button layout).

I'm sorry but i have no idea what your pad looks like or how it works. are you going in to the options and changing your control scheme at the character select? this may not fix the lack of r2 but if you are really insistent on that pad you could always sacrifice something else, like change super to r1. now you cant pick up but atleast you can use supers. i think you can also change taunts to select so theres that aswell.

I couldn't get about half of his combos done because some (mainly the ones where you have to hit square within 1/10 of a second of hitting circle) are just too complex for me to do a controller.  Kudos to SuperBot for making him really accurate to his game, though.
