I cannot stress how much of a difference the octagonal gates make on my MK cabinet. Thank you for the quick shipping and excellent service.
The 5 star review is specifically for the service and the quality of the product itself. It came exactly as described and did exactly what it is supposed to do.
However, after trying square and octagonal gates, ive learned that there's nothing an octagonal gate can do that a square gate can't do. But naturally, I wanted to try an octagonal gate so I can see for myself. One thing I wasn't aware of, if you put this octagonal gate on a genuine sanwa joystick, once it's on, it's impossible (for me) to take it off. I've been able to take these off of a sanwa clone, but for some reason, it won't come off a genuine sanwa joystick. Diy retro arcade posted a video about this specifically, so the info was there, I just didn't see it until after I put on the octagonal gate and didn't like it. I didn't like it because diagonals are much harder to hit with the octagonal gate. I would try to jump forward and backward, and it wouldn't work very often. I noticed the same thing while trying to block down, the block would'nt register pretty often. Because of all this, it makes charge characters very hard to play, so I just decided to stick with the vastly superior square gates.
I feel that square gates are just better, but if you have a cab with sanwa clones installed, I reccomend trying on those because its pretty easy to take them off if you don't like them. Plus, these are super cheap. JUST DON'T PUT THEM ON A GENUINE SANWA STICK UNLESS YOU ARE COMMITTING TO IT.
FIGHTING GAMES, MOVED FROM THE 4 GATE TO THIS OCTOGAN. CLICKS IN AND NOW I HIT THOSE MOVES MORE REGUALRLY
This fits the Arcade1up for MK but DOES NOT FIT ARCADE1UP STREET FIGHTER. Since such a large number of people want them for this it should be listed in the description.
