Interest Check: JOYTRON EXChanger dual-console arcade sticks
« on: February 06, 2012, 01:23:28 PM »
Hey peeps,

I have a mate who has gotten in contact with the Korean wholesalers of the JOYTRON EXChanger arcades sticks, so I want to throw an interest check out here to see what people think and/or if anyone would interested in getting one.

The PCBs for PS3/PC/360, with a 'clam-shell' case design for access to the inside hardware - similar to the Razer stick.

Official product info on the company's website (page is in Korean): http://www.joytron.co.kr/product_view.php3?kind=1&skind=1&f_num=557
Also a page on SRK: http://shoryuken.com/2011/12/04/joy-tron-announces-exchanger-dual-console-arcade-stick-with-sanwa-or-korean-parts/








NOTE: it was developed with Poongko so you KNOW it works lol.

Looks like a nice stick.

I have a theory that ball tops are better for motion characters, and bat tops are better for charge characters, but that's just personal opinion.

I have no idea how you would play an airdash game on a bat top though. But they work really well for 3D games.

My experience with the Korean style bat top sticks, the gate is extremely round, with a shorter throw than Sanwa JLF's. I was not as comfortable with charge characters, sorry to disagree with you Kyle. The lack of corners would suit motion characters more, IMO.

But I definitely agree with you regarding 3D games - the Fanta sticks are extremely popular in Tekken cabs.

Also, compared to regular Sanwa buttons, the Crown buttons are slightly smaller in diameter c, and flat - like Seimitsu's.

These may be manufactured by Crown - which look like a competitor of the Fanta sticks made by Myoungshin or Taeyoung judging from this page:

your theory depends on what type of bat top stick your talking about. ive got an IL(old school american HAPP) stick and i can do guiles super(in super turbo) on reaction. i also generally feel more comfortable with bat-tops in versus games, as airdashing and doing ahvb/tiger-knee motions are so easy.

They are dual-modded.

Regarding the ball-top and fanta discussion. Straight up, the ball-top sticks are for 2D fighters and Fanta sticks work best for 3D.
