    Awesome! *favourites topic.

    I came in here thinking I could get some links to videos to send to some friends whom I'm trying to open there eyes and get them more into the game.

    Yet, even better, there is stuff in here that I needed to look more into myself.

    Mucho Kudos for this topic TBird (and thanks to the other video contributors).

    Video on buffering was really helpful. I didn't realize the extent of buffering. I didn't realize you could buffer so many different things. It's nice to know how much easier it'll be for my EX SSB > FADC > U2 with Dudley now that I can buffer QCF before FADC. Thanks!

    Thanks for these beginner video's. I've been playing fighters for fun for the past several years but have never really gotten into them too deep. Having just purchased SSFIV and a TE arcade stick I was looking for a good and clear tutorial to help me along :)

    Thanks a bunch :)

    I'll join the many that have said thanks for the videos. Before SFIV last year, the last fighting game I played was Soul Caliber on the dreamcast in 1999, and the last 2D fighters I played were Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat II for the SNES, so yeah it's been a while. These videos are gonna help for sure.

    Hi, and thnx for those amazing vids they do help!!!

    btw after i saw onehandedterror video explaining the frame data i thought i would make something simular so if u you guys want it here is a spreadsheet :)
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service (it doesn't look too pretty tho but hey it gets the job done!)

    and if u want to know which moves can be punished by an ultra or super just do what it says under the black thing and try it if it works :)
    ps: there are 2 sheets because one sheet wasn't able to cut it with the punishement listed next to the characters!

    Thank you for taking the time to make these tutorials. I've been playing Super since it launched back in April and have found myself in between a rock and a hard place as of late. Your videos helped me see basic tactics I wasn't aware I could use. These tactics would have decided more than a few matches in my favor.(I feel dumb, but at least I realize some of the things I was doing wrong now).Thank you again TBird.

    Highly recommend any new players take a look at these, whether or not you believe you're "good". I know I learned at least 3 things out of these.

    Very nice! Thanks. Ive played street fighter since it was originally in arcades. Played up till SF2 series went bye bye. Never played all the alpha stuff etc. Never learned all that combo stuff either. Never owned another game system either up until a month ago! Yay ps3! Man the game has changed and these tutorials really helped me understand what changes have been made and what I need to do to be competitive. Thanks Tbird... On to the training room. :wgrin:

    Started watching these, and I have to say I'm learning stuff from each one so far. For instance, in the 3rd video covering Gauge Management, I never thought about how unnecessarily using Supers and Ultras to finish off an opponent in a non match-deciding round gives them free Super Meter energy in the next fight. Made me think about how going overkill can be a bad thing if you're not careful.
    There's only so much you can learn playing against the computer.

    its fun to overkill but i dont like to contribute to someone else's EX bars. especially since i play cammy, ive learned that 9 times out of 10, better things can be done with those EX bars rather than use them for a Super. By the way, the frame data videos are very informative. i recommend it to anyone that has been playing street fighter iv.

    It's a really good guide, I hope new players like I, see this.
    And for some reason when I attempt to use EX Tiger Uppercut to FADC, it cancels into Tiger Genocide.
    I use D-Pad and RT for Focus Attack if that helps anyone answer my question.

    First of all, huge thanks goes out to TBird and everybody else who contributed to the guides in this thread. This helps out so much as relatively new players such as I are trying to figure out where to start in our game and how to step it up. I think working to expand and improve the population of SF players is a wonderful thing and helps put fighting games on the map moreso than it already is. Great work.

    Hey guys,

    I created an SSFIV Yang Video. It's a compilation of all his movelist and combos that were taken from my own cap and also taken from direct footages. Find the video here.
