    Loving the Pongko vids and how aggressive he is. It's like watching a KOF match.

    Great site! I am saddened that one of my favorite characters (Vega/Claw) though has precious few vids of him actually winning D:

    Are you running the site? If possible - can you also add dates? Or sort them in order of newest to oldest?

    The game is still relatively new and people are figuring out things all the time - would be cool to know i'm watching a recent match and not some 6 month old match.

    Site is great though - good job.

    Thanks!

    Yes, it's my site.
    It started as a spreadsheet of collected links to help me study gameplay from, then I figured I should put it online so others could benefit from it too.

    I totally hear you on the date stamp thing.
    I will go ahead and mark each new vid posted with a date. (most likely the date it was posted or footage was taken)
    I will go and modify already posted vids as time permits.

    Right now vids are ranked in this order:
    1) top player vs. top player
    2) top player vs. other player
    3) other player vs. other player
    4) unknown player vs. unknown player

    I was thinking about tagging each of these groups with a different mark (colored medals, colored stars, etc.), but nothing has looked right yet.

    It would be helpful to list how many videos are available by the character name link, so we don't click on a 2nd character to find out there are no videos available for that match up.

    Yeah, there was an event, Bar fight or whatever that happened in so-cal a few weeks ago with many top players, might wanna check that out.

    What are those match-up ratios based off?

    And here are two Sakura vids found on niconico: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm6591739

    I'd tell you who they are, but I don't speak nor read Japanese. The player is very good though.

    I also found this site a while ago: Top SF4 players~ Don't know how accurate that is but I was able to find a few matches from said players on YT so you might wanna check that out as well.

    It would be helpful to list how many videos are available by the character name link, so we don't click on a 2nd character to find out there are no videos available for that match up.

    Great idea!

    Nobody likes clicking blindly and getting nothing, then dreading what other links will also be empty.

    I don't want to put the # vids notation for a few reasons:
    1) I want to keep the selection interface as clean as possible
    2) it would be a nightmare to update (I do all edits by hand)

    However, what I have done is to put "NO VIDEOS" over the selection choices that do not have any match vids.
    This way players will know there is nothing for that matchup, but still be able to click it if they want to see the "top player" or "matchup difficulty".

    Thanks!

    Any idea how to embed the videos from that site with the Sakura vids you linked?
    Also, anyone have any idea what the source of the material is?

    I plan to add console character pages once I have enough top player match vids to fill out a page.
    Until then, I will be adding console character matchups against characters that already have pages. (under the pages of those characters; ex. Seth has a match vid under Ryu)

    I would love to refine/add to my "top player" lists for each character.
    Currently I am following a VERY conservative method to selecting top videos and top player names to add.
    I plan to add names from the PSN and XBLA at some point. (I want to give it some time after their player matchup patch hits)
    I plan to add US/Other names after EVO.

    That "Top SF4 players" link you sent was actually my thread. :)
    I put that up with the hope of posting what I had researched as top players and then using the community resources to edit the list.
    SRK actually ending up closing the thread. :/

    this is just personal preference but I dont like that you have the match results beside the video, I like to be surprised.

    this is just personal preference but I dont like that you have the match results beside the video, I like to be surprised.

    PBalla also expressed a preference for this.

    I'd like to have different data configurations toggleable for each user.
    But my HTML isn't good enough to do that yet. (my Excel is good enough, but that's a different story)

    For now you can do the trick of shrinking the window so that the match text is cut off.

    I've also thought about setting it up so players can view videos by tournament or by player, or search/sort by other criteria. (but again I don't have the HTML chops yet)
    Or maybe just writing which tournament they are from next to the actual video window.

    I also am looking to add more types of player tools.
    For instance, right now I am tinkering with a color chart in Excel to show the tiering. (test: http://streetfighterdojo.com/sf4/data/charactermatchup.html)
    Which I can break down by console, arcade, metagame, etc.

    hey guys because i know registering for things is a pain i thought i post them as links for easier access.

    match 1
    match 2

    there flv that i just nabbed off the site. same one that Golden_Gunman posted. great vids. you can play them in an flv player or vlc that is unless someone knows how to embed these.

    And its a shame your thread had to close down :P I was actually thinking of creating a similar thread~

    And about the match results. You could make the font color of the results the same as the background color. So that if someone want's to see the results he/she needs to highlight the text.

    Just an idea though :P.

    I made the page with the idea of giving players a resource to improve their game.
    You get beatdown by a raving Balrog? Head to the page and check out how top players handle your shoes: how do they start the round, what spacing do they work to maintain, are they aggressive or do they turtle, how do they set-up and deliver damage, what moves do they use as counters to opponent attack set-ups, etc.
    So I made the match results show up on the page to make it easier for players to scan the matches for ones in which they can be assured their character wins/loses/trades, depending on what they want

    But I also understand and appreciate that many players are looking to these videos as an enjoyment of the game.
    And getting to experience the videos without spoilers is HUGE.

    Changing the match text color and changing the background color will also reomove info like "top players" and title of the video.
    I can make separate pages and manually delete those sections to make it work.
    Or perhaps there is a way to add html code that allows that info to be hidden and players click on it to expand?
    My HTML is still very limited, but I am hoping to grow it in line with the site.

    I DO want to offer the videos without match spoilers as an option.
    But I don't see it getting fixed in the short term.
    For now, you gotta resort to shrinking the window so that text is cut off from view. :/

    But I appreciate the input, and definitely put a higher priority on issues like this that are a VERY common want among players.

    Thanks!

    I for one would. Some characters you might never get to that point, so might as well show what you have.

    Makes sense.
    And I DO need to get those character pages done anyway.

    I will start work on those character pages and put them up.

    Also, if ANYONE has an image on Fei Long on his select screen (like the ones I have where you choose character/oppoenent), please send if to me. (link it or email)
    Otherwise I'm gonna have to try to create one in MSPaint/PS.

    This is the example.

    Looks tight!

    I looked at the html source trying to figure out the code.
    Looks like I'll have to play around with it.
    Also, manually adding it to each match in each page will be rough.
    So I gotta figure out some way to add such things across multiple pages/vids without doing each by hand.

    HUGE thanks for that info though.

    Outdating makes sense, especially on such a new game.

    I will be time stamping new vids as I post them. (ex. http://streetfighterdojo.com/sf4/matchups/ken_vs_gouken.html)
    And I will be going back over older vids and time stamping them time permitting.

    I would also like to continue develop player viewing options so they can sort the vids by date, player, etc.

    Due to time spent getting pages/vids/features up and my low (but growing) html skills, I plan to be growing these pages to include all these great ideas over time.

    But I TOTALLY agree that obsolete play is A STEP BACK in my goal of providing top video content for players to pull from.

    That's a small start.

    I will add more as they show up.

    If you're just interested in the vids to see SF play, then I hear ya.

    But if you are looking to use them as a player aid, then I HIGHLY recommend using them as a resource over and over.

    I compiled the M. Bison data on the ST side of this site as a tool to learn/develop M. Bison for ST and the (then) upcoming release of HD Remix.
    At the start, my ST M. Bison was very noobish.
    But I used the vids (and other data like combos I found and saved the links to) to develop my understanding of what to do in each matchup:
    1) how to start the round
    2) do I rushdown, hardcore turtle, contain, pressure/poke? (whose corner do they end the round in? if it's the opponent's, then your character is probably aggressive)
    3) how do I set-up and deliver damage to this character
    4) how does my opponent set-up and deliver damage
    5) what is my opponents ideal range and how do I avoid being in it
    etc.

    So I would play GGPO ST, lose to a particular character, and then load up my vids and use my emotion from the loss to scour the vids for ways to tighten up my game.
    And now my HD Remix M. Bison is very solid, and I'm Ranked 15th with him on XBLA.
    Good times.

    One reason I think Japanese players do so well is that they have an AMAZING peer playgroup to play against.
    They can just walk up to other top players in a match and watch them perform, and they can learn from that.
    In many ways, these vids are like a virtual arcade, where you can walk from one match to the next and learn from top players that you just don't have real access too.

    now i remember who you are! yeah man, we played a few times on hd remix and you always gave me the beatdowns with that bison of yours... thats how i remember your name.



    anyways i just wanted to say that your site is AWESOME, exactly what ive been waiting for... i'm sure the japs have sites like yours... prob is of course, that they're in japanese. also, i watch these vids the same way that you watch the bison vids... as a learning tool... maybe you could make up some that you would think might serve to help players to better understand certain fundamentals, like i learned ALOT about when to throw tigershots and when not to/ spacing them etc. by watching this vid of RF's sagat:











    one thing to notice here is that RF is playing against people arent up to his skill level, but are definitely good players. i've found that players of this type usually jump FORWARD over every fireball that they can... but the problem is that, in the highest level jap vids top players jump STRAIGHT UP over fireballs most of the time. so i could figure out how to play aginst those types of players theoretically, but not how to play against the aggressive jumpers... which this video does PERFECTLY. RF rarely does fireball then another immediate fireball, which he does do against top players... that one insight taught me alot. and seeing RF's fireball cadence against these weaker people i think will help out other people who have never mained a fireball character.
