advice on controllers
« on: 19 March 2019, 20:47:32 »

Good evening to all, I apologize for my bad English
I haven't played swos since more than 25 years, so I can't do well in dribling and doing tricks. but I have to tell you that I am not with my current controller, joypad for xbox one.
so I decided to change.
I have the possibility to take an arcade stick (dead or alive) for 40 €, but I am not so convinced ... I also managed to find a Gravis PC Gamepad from the United States for 45 € ..... what do you think ? I felt this last in many discussions, is it so?
I await yours. thank you in advance.

Gravis Gamepad is great! So are Arcade sticks...  Just get the same controller you used to have back in the day, to make yourself feel comfortable!

Adapters needed? Check this:

do you think that compared to the xbox one joypad I take a step forward? I found various versions of gravis. some made in canada and others made in china ... are there differences between the two?
Also what do you think about this: ARCADE STICK DOA for xbox 360? ... better gravis? .... I don't remember my arcade sticks of the past ... I have total darkness. >:( >:(

The xbox controller or any other modern controller has 1000 buttons and 3 sticks...

SWOS needs 8 directions and 1 button! Nuff said? ;D

yes that's for sure. ;D ;D ;D ;D
but what I ask you: compared to the xbox one controller, will I find improvements in the game? with xbox one controller I don't have great mastery and aim.
thanks for the answers.

Gravis PC Gamepad goes with 15pin. Go for this one:

(Depending on shipping costs, both work fine!)

Tac2 is a great joystick.

But nobody will be able to tell you, if YOU can play well with it. It's all a matter of personal taste, and just that!!
