    Ragna wasn't in GGXX#R :p
    Sol and Baiken could do Dustloops in #R and Zappa had an infinite with the Dog Summon.
    Yeah, I'm an idiot. And I thought Baiken could only do like, 3 or 4 dusts or maybe 5 with a couple FRCs in there.

    And yeah, Zappa's j.HS/dog 5D infinite was badass as hell.

    First off, thanks a ton for this thread. I have it bookmarked and it's almost always open on a tab in my browser while I'm reading SRK. Seriously, it rocks. Just wanted to make a quick correction:
    GGPO: An emulator/netplay tool developed by Ponder, used by many players for classic games such as 3S and A2/3. http://www.ggpo.net/

    The link is broken. I think the 'www' shouldn't be there. I'm not sure if it's browser specific or not (I'm on Firefox) but http://ggpo.net/ works for me.

    Great thread! Thanks a lot...reading some of the slang on here is like learning a new language lol.

    I have a quick question though...does every character (in this case Super Street Fighter IV) have the ability to buffer. I saw that Akuma can c.MK and then use his Ultra to lower his hit-box and avoid a j.HK. I've been working with Juri and I wanted to know if she had capabilities like this.

    So, it's referring to a way of playing, rather than a specific move(s)?

    Thanks

    Yeah Shenanigans tend to be high risk-high reward type things that rely on your opponent not expecting it or just not knowing the matchup, and are easily punished if your opponent sees it coming.

    For example, level 3 focus in SF4 is a shenanigan. You see it land in matches because people are expecting a level 2 followed by mixup, and if they are already on the defensive they just wait for it and get hit. But, it's not a real tactic that you can use to start a combo - most of the time you try it, you'll just get punished really hard.

    What do people mean when they use the term Respect? I haven't seen it used too much, so I can't really figure out what they are referring to. I've tried searching the SRK Wiki Glossary, Eventhubs' Terminology, general search engines, and the SRK Forums--which have threads that don't relate to my search with thousands of replies, which I'm not sorting through, sorry.

    Thanks in advance.

    ^ There's no real secret, nothing exclusive to fighting games beyond the normal meaning of the word. They're just applying the term to fighting games.

    Outside of a match, usually it means that you acknowledge and appreciate another player as being smart/strong: they possess a level of skill sufficient enough that they are to be taken seriously or are worth taking seriously. Alternately, it can indicate that they have attained a body of knowledge and a depth of understanding such that their opinions on how the game "is meant to be played" (ie. what is most effective in high level competition) are worthy of consideration.

    Inside of a match, sometimes it's used in a less overarching or all-encompassing sense to indicate that a player has taken the threat/possibility of something specific an opponent has presented into account to such a degree that they are forming or changing their current course of action or whole gameplan around it. Most commonly this threat/possibility is the ability (assumed, just demonstrated, or already known) to effectively, properly use a particular option or set of options on reaction or at will or with a very high degree of consistency. Essentially you've decided that they've significantly tilted the risk/reward away from you for that thing, and you are adjusting accordingly. You could call it a... caution adaptation.
    "I'm not going to use [move, tactic] against him [excessively, very much, right now at this moment, for the entire duration of this situation, at all for the rest of the match] because I'm very sure that he will [stuff it, punish it, bait it, avoid it, etc.]."

    what does hit confirm mean?

  • SethSquallSethSquall Joined: Posts: 24
    Hit confirming


    Hit-confirming is the act of giving your mind enough time to react to a situation.

    Instead of going for an unsafe combo and hoping it'll connect, ideally you would leave "mental padding" in the form of quick normal attacks that can be linked together, which will give the mind the time to process whether your attacks are connecting or being blocked.

    If the attacks land, you can then go into a damaging combo, and if the attacks are blocked, you aren't forced to guess with a highly punishable maneuver.

    Hope that helps.

    Either I'm blind, or whiffing and stuffing didn't get mentioned at all in this thread. Seeing how this glossary is intended for new players, I can see why it should be included, considering how often it is being used, and how infrequently people use those words on a daily basis in general conversation.

    They do seem like words that can be deduced easily when using context clues, but I feel that I can see ambiguous responses from new player to new player too. Example: One might assume stuffing requires a specific situation, like Ken countering with a dp because of frame advantage.

    I would provide 'em, but I'm a new player myself, so my definition will probably be not be the best if it came from 'impression' and not 'fact'.

    infamy is right. Maybe Hakan's move was given the nickname DDT based upon the old wrestling move.

    I heard a phrase I hadn't heard in awhile but "magic series" is something most people might not know but is a very popular terms with older games. I'm not really sure how to define this, like I know what it is I just suck at explaining things.

    People have different notations for stuff, but those mean standing HK, crouching MK, and I assume close standing HP. Things start to get wonky with close/far standing, I think the standard is c for close, f for far, cr for crouching. You shouldn't have to say cst since there aren't any characters with close/far versions of their crouching attacks as far as I know.

  • onReloadonReload what's a combo Joined: Posts: 209
    Probably "close, standing". Sounds like a SF4 Ken combo.

    Still, when someone writes "c." for "close," they don't need to put anything for standing, as it's implied; attacks are assumed to be done standing unless "cr." is there, indicating a crouched attack..but like HBRD already said, some people have different notations.

    step 1
    get in front of a mirror

    step 2
    insert a spoon full of salt into your mouth

    step 3
    watch yourself get salty and notice the similarities to when you mess up something in a match

    In regards to 3S:

    Is it still a Link, if the hits don't add to a higher combo number? For example, Ryu's link: [Forward+HP] to [Shin Shoryuken.] The HP hit does 2 and the Super does 4. So sometimes I get the message "Super Art 6 Hits." Thats definitely a link. But what if it says 2 hit Combo first (from the forward HP), then almost immediately goes into Shin Shoryuken, but the numbers dont add to a 6 Hit Combo message?

    Basically is it still a Link, if the hit numbers don't add together?

  • onReloadonReload what's a combo Joined: Posts: 209
    then it didn't combo - if you have the other player block after getting hit by F+HP, they'll block the super. a link is a type of combo, so if they can break out of it, it's not a combo, or specifically, a link combo
