    should have read up a bit before purchase... seems the version I got requires an old ps/2 keyboard to work... of course I threw out an old ps/2 keyboard last month... grabbing one off a mate tomorrow but annoying to have it sitting here in front of me and not be able to use it :(

    I want to hadoken

    I hear ya mate, lucky I had an old one laying around. It's much more convenient to sit back from the LCD and have the keyboard right there too. :)

    My arcade even uses a ps2 loopback for a keyboard, don't need the keyboard though for my setup.

    you can buy usb connectors from the site... not sure if you need to change anything else tho, as on the actual company page I read something along the lines of changing the pcb if you want usb...

    here it is

    "NOTE: We have discontinued the USB Adapter, you will instead receive our new USB PCB plus USB Cable. You will be required to replace your old PCB"

    looks simple enough...just think it's a bit strange the usb one isn't the standard... new PCB adds an extra $30 US plus $10 US for the cable

    now I'm confused. They don't send you a connector to enable you to connect it to a usb keyboard/pc? Surely for $220 the thing plugs straight in to whatever setup you have?

    I also read you can't plug the dual/tankstick in and have it work for two players in SF4. Is there no way around this?

    personally... I'd advise against this purchase...if you have vista64 there is no way round the 2 player problem at this time, and I find the joystick no good for SF4 (excellent for sf2 tho go figure)

    ozstick have changed the desktop controllers they were selling - these new ones seem much sexier than the old ones -- but they're still colour-configurable.

    [​IMG]

    They're about $100 AUD and would be coming from Melbourne.

    I have nothing but praise for ozstick - Chris the guy who runs it is a regular at aussiearcade.com.au and always helpful. I bought heaps of the gear from there for my MAME cabinet.

    Reviving the SF4 thread.

    I've had it a little while now. workin through pc issues. I hope you guys are still playin around.

    Invite please for steam group.

    Gamer Tag should be TOG F1r3br4nd. I couldn't remember my old password and now Firebrand is "in use" Doh!

    I've gone and got an Xbox-controller for my pc. Worst choice efah! Instant sound distortion with xp because it doesn't know how to handle the it's audio drivers. The Xcontroller has some sort of usb sudio drivers in for the headsets and win7( & vista I assaume) can silence it. if anyone knows how that would be helpful. just askin.

    I might just fork out for a ps3 control instead. I never got the hang of the sticks.

    Plus I want my alpha combos back.

    firebrand forget about getting game controllers that clone/mimic consoles, you can get dedicated pc game controllers that are built for adult hands and work much better.
    Just have a look around harvey normans or a similer shop.

    if there is a steam group, I wouldn't mind being invited in as I could do with playing against some people as slow as me: plebc (this is my everything tag).

    had my first run of the game tonight and after solving some of my graphics issues (running at 10 frames a second; my machine crashing whenever AA was turned on), I seem to have it running at an acceptable pace, and am enjoying it loads. it looks amazing, for sure.

    now I just need to practice and re-read those parts of this thread that discussed arcade controllers. I have a ps2-like gamepad controller that I quite like (with fans in the handles so my hands don't get so sweaty), but was thinking about a proper arcade stick.

    any final comments about the x-arcades? do they work with two people yet? if not, what is best for two-players on one machine? can i just plug in two gamepads?
