This might sound a little stupid to some of the more hardcore VF players out there, but here it goes: What I was wondering was: is there a proper way to use an arcade stick? Is there any technique you're supposed to use? I suppose it's really a matter of preference, and somewhat hard to explain, but any input at all on this matter would be appreciated. I'm not new to arcade fighting games by any measure, but then I've never gotten to serious about any one game either. I want to truly master (or at least come as close as I can to mastering) VF4. (BTW: I'm interested in getting as much input on this as I can. Maybe the things one person suggests won't work, but I'm sure with a few sources to draw on, it'll help a lot. So if you feel you have anything to contribute, please do.) Thanks.
