Suggested parts for modding a fightstick?

#1 Posted by Driadon (2995 posts) -

I just recently snagged a Hori Fighting Stick 3, though I'm not much for the square gate on it. Can anyone suggest parts I would need to turn this stick into an octagonal one?

All you need is an Octoganal gate... Its the easiest thing to mod.

all you need is an octagonal restrictor plate, not much of a mod.

I wasn't sure what I would need, nearly all the areas I checked online told me that I'd need many many more parts where more then half don't make sense (Like a new top. Why the hell would that matter for octagonal movement :S). Thank you for clearing that up.

I guess I'm the only guy here you actually likes a square gate.  Then again, I play a charge character.

@JJOR64: Well, yeah, so do I, but every now and then I bust out Abel which is a bitch to use with a square gate.

I never had problems because of the square gate. Usually when I fuck up it's my own damn fault, or lag.

Square gate for life, it's awesome. I use fireballs, so there isn't a direct correlation between charge and square, although people who play charge characters are usually squares. Hmm.

I switched to an octoganal gate for a bit but then switched back to square and just got better with it. Octoganal gates are usually best for Shoto characters but honestly square is best all around IMO
