    Idk where they got this random idea for. Look at Demon Dash's thread on the SAN DIEGO COMICCON BUILD. The ABC scheme has always been in use. This is actually the first time I have heard the buttons being referred to as LMH

    It's been A/B/C/ since they start.
    TvC's in game stated A/B/C and P (partner, logical since there was only one assist possibility), I don't see why we should suddenly changed that.

    On topic: Good thread, this should help newcomers and give the vets a heads up what's changed :tup:

    Nice general thread. The only thing I don't understand is why you would use X to mean plus instead of +. Especially considering X is usually used to denote cancel and there is already a pretty universal symbol for +.

    Because...it looks cooler. And it doesn't space out the motion from the button as much

    QCFxA
    QCF+A

    It blends better IMO

    I think it's about time to go 'if you wanna change the key, make your own damn beginners guide, no wait you didn't'.

    Let's focus on improving the info not on wrangling over minor stupid crap.

    True words.

    So I think I'm going to hold off on the Resets, Mixup, and situational stuff until we are more familiar with the engine (which will probably be release) Good idea?

    I was trying to think of things to add that are more unique to vs to add, should probalby link to the srkwiki page for mvc2 or at least look at it, there's some good info there that we can reuse.

    I was thinking as worth adding:

    OTG/Groundbounce
    General description of trap/keepaway vs rushdown
    wavedashing
    trijumps and instant overheads.

    Those are all things that are pretty steady and we know a ton about.

    And the game never titled the X-Factor Cancel.

    No, it's not officially X-Factor Cancel, just like it's not officially Focus Attack Dash Cancel. But you are taking an official term (X-Factor and Focus Attack) and appending what you're naturally doing (canceling or dash canceling) to make a pretty intuitive term. Regardless, KFC is not or will never be the official name; it's simply what the community calls it. THAT's the argument.
    Somethings wrong with the link.

    Hmm, weird. But here's another.

    E3: MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3 MOVE?LIST - iPLAYWINNER - FIGHTING GAME NEWS STRATEGY & MEDIA

    In the first pic, you can see Light Attack, Medium Attack, and Heavy Attack.

    Also, on the official site for TvC:

    TATSUNOKO VS. CAPCOM ULTIMATE ALL-STARS

    ...it's referred to as Light Attack, Medium Attack, and Strong Attack.

    Over at eventhubs:

    Basic gameplay details for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom : EventHubs.com

    ...the guide uses the buttons L, M, and H.

    Over at iplaywinner:

    TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM GAMEPLAY SYSTEM - FIGHTING GAME NEWS STRATEGY & MEDIA

    ...their guide uses Light Attack, Medium Attack, and Hard Attack.

    I don't want to sound like I'm the L,M,H champion here, since, again, I'm learning a new convention either way. But the community alone came up with the A,B,C convention, for both TvC and MvC3. Again, the inconsistency is the same: What the community has accepted vs what the game itself calls it.

    I was just saying it never had an official name. That's why people called it what it was called. And to keep it 100% that was the first time I have seen that pic. But I have heard Seth use ABC, and the boards have been using ABC since June. So my main argument was WTF why are people bitching about it now outta nowhere. Today was the first time ever I heard people call them LMH.

    With that said, shit isn't changing and convo is over. That just made me sound like an asswad but tbh that whole argument wasted 2 pages that could've been used to help improve this shit. And nothing was accomplished in the process.

    For my character thread I think I'm just going to use

    Q - Quick attack
    S - Strong Attack
    F - Fierce Attack
    X - eXchange
    P - Primary partner tag team special
    A - Auxiliary partner tag team special

    And type out "Canceling the active and recovery frames of your hyper combos by activating X-Factor" longhand every time.


    imo

    I guarantee you your topic will be locked and someone else with common sense will make the official one.





    ANYWAY... why cant we use the numerical system since MvC3 uses ABCE A1 A2?

    j.A, B, B, C, 236B xx 236AB xx KFC, 236AB xx DHC 214AB

    over

    j.A, B, B, C, QCF+B xx QCF+AB xx KFC, QCF+AB xx DHC QCB+AB


    I think the plus sign really adds lengthiness to the notation and the original notation is all letters which is hard to read in chunks.


    Blazblue notation for MvC3.

    So you are assuming everyone new here would be braindead and can't associate ABC with LMH even though I stated it in the
    legend and many other games also use the ABC notation? You're underestimating them IMO. You should also understand if people are already familiar with Vs titles then they don't even need to be here. MvC3 doesn't even use punches or kicks anymore so idk how it will even be familiar to SF players. Especially since there seems to be no problem with people using Jab, Strong, Fierce, Short, Forward, and Roundhouse. No complaints on that end. Dude the convo has been over and nothing was solved.

    And numerics are for the Japanese lol. If I'm not playing GG/BB I don't wanna see #s

    That must have been meant for the other guy.

    I could care less about L/M/H/E vs A/B/C/E

    I have a problem with the notation being all upper case letters. QCF vs 236 is easier on the eyes.

    since when?

    for mvc2 long combos didnt look silly. look at iron mans infinite for example

    Standard Unfly infinite: [lk, U+HP xx FLY, f.lk, f.U+hp xx unfly, U+hp, aduf]

    if we use mvc3 controls it could easily be something like

    Standard Unfly infinite: [A, u+C xx FLY, f.A, f.U+C xx unfly, U+C, aduf]

    no silly at all IMO. someone did a writeup of dantes 100% using letters and it wasnt silly.

    saying simpy u., d., cr., or qcf beats 2 or 8 or 5 or 7 or whatever the hell the number pad is supposed to be

    Thats because you have lower case in MvC2 controls. MvC3 is ABCE so all the notation would be upper case its scientific fact that all cap blocks of text are more difficult to process.

    lol wut..who said we HAVE to put cr or d or u in upper case?

    the fact remains if youre making a beginners thread on iron man, and you tell a noob up+A, they will get that easier then telling them 6A or whatever up is in the number system.

    and how do you tell someone to super jump in TvC notation? 28? lol gtfo. sj.A makes more sense and is easier to comprehend

    Because I believe MvC2 used traditional letter notation. And L, M, H for the attack strengths, only difference being that there are no P and K letter now to differentiate between punch and ick.

    That and this is SRK where we can use "smileys" like :qcf: and :hcb:.
    For me, SF4 got fighting games backward - combos are supposed to be easy and reversals are supposed to be hard.

    Look at your keyboard.

    789
    456
    123

    5 is neutral. 6 is forward. 8 is up. So 236 would be the fireball motion.

    x rather than + is just being obtuse IMO.

    Also while I prefer number notation, there is no reason to argue about it when arrows are just better than everything. Use arrows.

    Directional smilies work only for written language. How are you going to say it without sounding long-winded and redundant in speech?

    If numpad notation was dumb it wouldn't be used by multiple scenes in multiple games. And also, you wouldn't see Japanese players use it even for Capcom games.

    Honestly, it doesn't matter what notation the game uses. Anyone can learn to be proficient at any notation, as long as it's effective and efficient. Personally, I think use ABCE is better since everyone has more experience with it than LMH. Using LMH because it's official seems silly to me, since our American scene has never been like that. If we did, we would of never used jab strong fierce. Japan doesn't.

    Wait what? We're talking about notations for the forum right? Why would we have to 'say' it?

    And at any rate all you'd have to say is 'quarter circle forward A' or 'QCF A' or 'DP C' for :qcf::snka: and :dp::snkc:.

    The only other option would be to say 'two, three, six A' which is pretty difficult to understand without a number-pad at hand. Substituting ABC for LMH wouldn't make it any easier to 'say'. You'd say smiley the same way you'd say anything that isn't number pad notations.
