If you are looking for a video teaching how to replace the ball top of a Mad Catz Street Fighter IV FightStick Tournament Edition look no further. You’ll need a Sanwa LB-30-N Joystick Bat Top and Sanwa Joystick Adapter. I bought my parts from Lizard Lick.
To replace the ball top for a bat top, you will need to remove all the hex screws and open the top of your FightStick. On the bottom of the joystick, put a knife or a flat screwdriver and loose the ball top.
Watch the video around 4m10s to see what’s the procedure looks like.
I recently bought the Street Fighter IV FightStick Tournament Edition for the PS3. My friend asked if I tried to use in the PC because he can use his PS3 controller on the PC. I tried and the FightStick works on the PC.
Here is the official page on MadCatz FAQ that says the PC is not officially supported but won’t work on a computer that has an NVidia chipset.
Update: Does my Mad Catz Tournament Edition Arcade Stick for PS3 works on PC / PS4 / Street Fighter 5?
I bought Street Fighter IV and when you start the game it asks for you to create or use an existing profile.
Any Game for Windows Live will enable you to create a profile that have all your games and you can show to other people what you have been playing. For example, see Microsoft Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry Hryb gamertag Major Nelson.
You enter your an email address and the password and it will download your profile to your computer but in my case it said “Can’t connect to Live – Error 0x80151911”
I read that the culprit was the MTU parameter set on your network. It can be set in any part of your network like your router or your Windows computer.
You need to set the MTU size to at least 1400 to make it download the profile. See your router documentation on how to change this parameter.
On a Windows computer you need to open regedit.exe and then search for the entries called MTU in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/Tcpip/Interfaces and select each interface (a random string of numbers). Right click the parameter MTU and choose decimal then type 1492 or 1500. Now you should be able to download your profile.
