    Actually, what he did was:
    3P Throw (They air recover) (Activate) > Slide > Fierce Scrape > RH > Jab Scrape, etc.

    People are always gonna look scruffy against Dhalsim anyway, because you have to fight to get in. His execution's usually a lot cleaner though and he usually hits all his VC's. If you watch some of Chikyuu's matches from 2003, his stuff was pretty "scruffy" as you'd call it at times as well.

    In those matches against V-Sak then V-Akuma that was the only VC he did right. He messed up everything else or did guard crushes, which again on another day, would cost him the game. Although he did rape the Sak player hard :tup:.

    The same thing happened when he played Shinya too and against Dark, more missed VC's. Had Dark not paniced a little during the actvations he coulda won.

    Against sim, the good opening he had won him the first round, he let him back in after the assault at the beginning. lucky to win that last round.

    Yeah, I don't know why you guys are cheesing over that Sodom player. His game was good, no doubt, but we've all seen better.

    Like whom? VER was a beast, but Krasher is doing stuff I've never seen them do.. bah, to each his own. All I know is that Krasher is making Sodom look top tier lol

    everyone looks "scruffy" when they play tough opponents or match ups.
    @Slide
    Some interesting info, I'll try some of these soon. It isn't a prob to find jump crazy CHuns on and offline, same for Ken players ...^^ Oh and the c.FK beating Chuns c.RK, thats true but can anyone explain why it sometimes knocks down and sometimes doesn't regardless of CH or not?

    I think it's probably a smaller hit frames on the knockdown hit. I dunno.
    I wish it cancellable like it was in the other Alpha games. He really needs a ranged cancellable low. It's be amazing if he couldve comboed the level 3 kick with that.

    Hmm.. Interesting views.
    Gief, Birdie and I think Mika can all splash, then the range of VC 360's allows you to grab easily and continue to combo.

    OMG, Karin and Juni also crossup into 360 ->juggle. <3

    ^right you are

    I'm not buying that.

    He always plays the same crazy rash style. dude is full of confidence, even against the best players/characters. I think it's just his style to throw people off.

    Ok thx for the repley and yes in Alpha 2 to it was quite nice to cancel it into the kick super or qcb+K.^^

    Guy's chains dont come out if you're holding in any direction.

    scratch this part. I've confirmed that holding back, up, or up/back, you can still FFchain. But holding those directions are pointless as far as any progression is concerned, atleast in my opinion.

    The strong - fierce chain comes out when holding any direction but down, down/back, and offensive crouch.

    Directions you can hold:

    FF chain: :l:, :u:, :ub: back, up, up/back

    strong - fierce: :l:, :r:, :u:, :ub:, :uf: back, forward, up, up/back, up/foward

    Directions you can't:

    For both FF chain and strong - fierce: :d:, :df:, :db: down is the universal no chain direction for Guy.

    Too bad, cause that limits the buffer zone alot I think. *note that it's still very lenient though, you can still end up holding the "bad" directions if you time it properly.
    This is why IMO it's better to go neutral whenever you chain, that way there's no risk of screwing up the chain and you aren't making your motions longer(by using back making more inputs) comboing into his level 3 kick.

    Does anyone know exactly what codec and bitrate were used to compress the acho_uz6_* videos? Meaning, the Zero Direction vids posted at a-cho.

  • KyokujiKyokuji Needlessly Perverted Joined: Posts: 2,926
    Yeah, I have to say, those videos are pretty good quality given their size.

    video codec is wmv9

    A-cho updated.

    NG13- go to a-cho.com, click "arcade," and hover your cursor until you see something called mov.html in your status bar at the bottom of your internet browser window.

    It's the icon in the frame on the left-hand side, right under the text, and right above the VF5 icon. The last red one before the blog one at the bottom.

    Thanks, man. I was looking around in those 2 links posted on the previous page.

    Seems you can't download them..

    Can anyone please give at least one source of A3 vids, besides a-cho and youtube? I love this game and thats not enough :sweat:

    I doubt it. I don't think Daigo even plays A3 anymore.

    Could anyone help with the Karin cc infinite? I've looked through threads here with the search option and didn't find anything that adequately explains it for me.

    Edit: Nevermind, got it. Wasn't cc-ing right.

    Wow. So you're still around, eh? Nothing much. Only V-Akuma has moved from top to mid-tier status, and V-rose is now in the top 3. Ask TS.

    Yeah. I wanted to do a huge site on a3 but ended up scrapping it after I started moving around and couldn't balance my time out.

    It's been a while, but since anthologies has come out and I've taken a year off from school (starting now) I've decided to get back into it as a hobby. I've forgotten a lot of things sadly, however I'm gonna try to catch up again.
