Where possible it would be nice to play the matches on Supercade / 2DFighter.com since GGPO SF2HF is very 'buggy' and 'desyncy', and whatismore with 2DF the replays are saved so ill capture and put the best ones up on youtube!

While your there, also download the Okai recorder (this allows you to record matches).
*To use the Oaki recorder you also need to have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package instaled:

When you connect to an online game check the 'record matches' box:
before U check the 'ready' box. When U finish the set, the tiny compressed '.krec' replay files appear in the 'records' folder.

THE EMULATION SPEED ISSUE.
There has been alot of debate about the running speed of HF under emulation. For those who don't know, HF runs faster than the origonal arcade board under emulation (within Mame & Winkawaks) this is because the speed of the game in HF was linked to the CPU speed of the board (or something like that). I have repeatedly timed the full round 'time out' matches of the tourney vids I'm posting, and the correct emulation using the fantastic old Callus Emulator. I've concluded that a round (going by when the clock starts & finishes) is around:
In both Mame and WinKawaks under normal settings a round will last approx
clearly a significant speed inrease, and 'very' noticable when played side by side. Thankfully there is an emulator (besides the fantastic but defunct 'Callus') that runs the game at the correct speed, 'nFBA'. For more info see ONLINE PLAY section at the top of the page for more info:
