Hey all,

I've got a Hori Neo Fighting Stick that works perfectly most of the time. Once in a while it'll stop recognizing down inputs. As it doesn't happen all the time, I'm not sure how to approach it.

Any advice?

Thanks

Could be the microswitch going bad. You should swap the stick for a JLF.

Replacing the microswitch is a quick fix...but ultimately I agree with Xian...swap the stick.

In a Hori you need to cut some plastic and then drill 4 holes for the mounting plate.

Underneath the metal plate is plastic...use flat head screws to mount the stick to the plastic otherwise the metal top won't sit flush. Don't drill through the top of the stick it will look ugly :-)
