    No problem, just focus on "proper technique" and u'll eventually get it.
    And another thing is to practice both sides evenly. Cause if practice one side exclusively, its going to be awhile to learn the other side, which would also affect how you play if u can only do CC's on one side. Just be patient and u'll eventually see results.

    I have a few questions about RCing that I'd like some help with. First, I read the post on it that Buktooth linked in the first post of this topic so I generally know what needs to be done, I just need clarification.

    First of all, what does it mean to negative edge something?

    Second, I'm having some issues RCing my funky kicks with Ken and would like to know how I'm supposed to RC something but use lk as the finisher for the move, as is the case with the Funky Kick. Do I just tap the lk really fast after hitting the roll or is there an easier way?

    Hi all, i am quite new to all these fighting terms, and read some faq of this thread.
    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Fighting_game_terms

    This one is also well done i think.

    Just one question, what do you call a meaty hit?

    I call a meaty hit where as a person wakes up, you stick a move with long attack/hit frames inside where the person will wake up, making reversals harder to do. Thats my interpetation of it...

    It also gives you a lot more frame advantage and makes things like sagat meaty c.fierce > c.fierce possible

    I'm having trouble RCing certain moves. I got the charge back + F attacks RCed (Bison's Psycho Crusher, Blanka's Ball.) But im having trouble RCing QCB and other stuff (Tatsu, and other stuff.) Any advice? Are some moves NOT RC-able?
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    It's just about timing, qcf/b, hcf/b, charge b-f, ppp, kkk are all RC-able
  • Capn SpankyCapn Spanky Bullet Billpocalypse Joined: Posts: 1,795
    And basically, it just comes out as fast as a kara cancel in 3s? Like, I input the motion that fast?
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    I never played 3s but, its the same as doing a kara cancel.

    Hi everyone!

    Sorry for disturbing...

    I'm new in cvs2 and I have a question related with the different versions.
    I have the PS2 PAL version. And when I see some videos, it seems that my game is really slower. Is it because the PAL version only supports 50Hrz? If it is the case, is the NTSC version faster? Thanks in advance for your answers.
  • tetsuye00tetsuye00 I've got an AKA Joined: Posts: 589
    Having worked in the game industry and tested games, standard PAL tv's output 50hz and NTSC tv's are standard at 60hz. That doesn't actually change the play speed of the game though.

    What version of CVS2 do you have. normal or EO?

    Hi Tetsuye. Thanks for your answer.

    I have the normal version of cvs2. The reason why I asked this question is because, in Gulty Gear XX#, you can chose the option you want (50Hrz or 60Hrz)(in the PAL version). And the fact is that the 50Hrz "version" is slower than the other.
  • tetsuye00tetsuye00 I've got an AKA Joined: Posts: 589
    Really, PAL-50 shouldn't run any slower than PAL-60. It should just drop frames. I could be wrong, but that has been my experience. wierd.

    Okay, I read the first page about RCing, but when exactly do you press LK+LP? Is it after you enter in the command for the special move, or is it sometime during it?

    Add the roll about halfway through the move motion. Usually on the down or df/db before the move finishes.

    Is there a post that breaks down common team abbreviations (for instance: CBS, Are, etc.)?

    checked the first post, are DC and PS2 speeds identical?

    i've read a ton of different opinions on this but it honestly seems to me and everyone i play with that there is a speed difference. We usually have two TVs set up, one with PS2 CvS2 and one with DC MvC2, but sometimes more people want CvS2 so we set it up on both TVs. When switching between PS2 and DC there is a crystal clear difference in speed, IMO. I have to slow down my PTF and Shosho motions to get them to come out correctly on the DC version.

    CBS is Cammy Blanka Sagat and the only common team abbreviation I've ever heard. Never heard of Are or have any ideas what it might stand for. It might be some Japanese player I know a lot of times you hear stuff like team Mago or team Bas which are two well known Japanese players that use a specific team. Your best bet if you can't figure it out is to just ask in the thread you see it in or in the "Ask Me Something" thread if the one you see it in is in one of the dead character forums.

    ARE is a term for the best possible combination in a groove. A-ARE was A/Sak-Bison-Blanka, but i think Vega replaced Sak. P-Are is P-Kyo/??(Sagat IMO)/Cammy.

    Just started learning this game and wanted to know what to practice first, I find the combo system hard to get use to with those strict timings and hit confirming are nothing like 3rd strikes.
    Any tips would be helpful
  • Atb_555Atb_555 www.neoempire.com Joined: Posts: 1,538
    Depends on your characters but you'll find that you can do some combos slower than you think eg: shoto: short, short xx super.

    I would learn some safe block strings first but what team and groove have you got?

    Also know what far reaching normal you can use to punish whiffs that cancels into supers this is quite important.

    My team is cammy ken and sagat I like both K and C groove
  • UtsusemiUtsusemi S.O.N.S Joined: Posts: 200
    Go through the move list and see what each special and super does, Look up some bnb combos for your characters like Ken's is Cr.lk Cr. lk St.lk xx Hcf lk for example. Check out your characters lv. 2 cancels for C-groove and JDing should just come naturally from playing more, that team is a good team for both C and K groove.

    Search YouTube for "Combofiend" and "John Choi." I don't see any reason to play that team in K or C differently from either of them.

    Oh, and as far as comparisons to 3s go, there aren't as many hit confirms in CVS, and rarely are they one hit, confirm, super. Most of them are confirming off of multiple hits, which are easier in CVS than in 3s.
