Review: Sanwa Denshi Silent JLF Joystick Lever, 2014 Model

The JLF lever is one of Sanwa Denshi's crowning jewels in arcade stick parts. Introduced in the early 1990s, the JLF stood the test of time for its solid performance for fighters and other arcade games. The lineage can now be found on most retail arcade sticks in the market. In recent years, Sanwa reintroduced the JLF in a new iteration with the Silent variant. Instead of the tried and true clicky microswitches found in normal models, the Silent JLF reduces the noise with new switches allowing for near quiet volumes without compromising on performance. While proven to work very well on both ends of the spectrum, Sanwa didn't stop on improving as it created a new version of the Silent JLF (JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK).

Decapre Hitbox Issues in USF4 by NerdJosh

Josh "NerdJosh" Jodoin has made a new video talking about what he thinks may be differences in Decapre's hitbox in Ultra Street Fighter IV depending on what side (1p/2p) of the screen the character is located. In the video, Josh shows a combo that almost always works on standing player 1 Decapre, but never works on crouching or player 2 Decapre in either standing or crouching position.

Jodoin is not sure whether this is indeed proof of side differences, but put up the video so that other players could investigate and figure out exactly what is happening with Decapre's hitbox. Hit the jump for the video.
