    I couldnt find any in the GC so I got a SC2 stick from 60 dollars AUS for the stick and 40 AUS for shipping, but it was worth it, even if i havn't really been using it that much for VF /versus/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I can do magnetos rom infinite (if you know what that is) on a SC2 stick in MVC2, but they dont really feel like a 2D arcade stick. Once you get the hang of them there fine, but I still have trouble doing double QCF's on them, but if you want a stick to play both 2D and 3D games, then theres nothing wrong with using a SC2 stick.

    hey guys, is there anywhere one can get a stick made with those authentic sanwa parts here, or anywhere? ive been looking for a stick just for VF.. my x-arcade is okay, but i want something a lot more sensitive and sanwa sounds like the way to go.. cheers..

    You guys might like to try ringing around your local videogame stores and asking if they have any arcade sticks, that's what I did and I got a very nice Namco PSX Arcade Stick (The one with yellow buttons.) for $20 AUD.

    Namco Stick:


    Also check out they have Sanwa parts and I think they would be able to build a custom stick for you guys.

    To make a long story short, i couldnt get the SC2 stick and I found the Namco Arcade Stick on eBay. I got that one for $102 plus shipping... /versus/images/graemlins/mad.gif Dude your lucky getting it for 20 bucks..

    Damn $120, I knew the Namco stick was rare but I had no idea it was that rare.

    I'm never ever going to sell my Namco stick. /versus/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Anyway Congrats on your purchase.
