Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.

  • Re: The Official Qanba Fightstick Thread (New products Coming)

    Ah, then I can't guarantee whether it'll work or not. Whether or not Sanwa and Seimitsu are swappable depends entirely on what kind of mount you have in the Qanba. While universal is becoming fairly standard, I've got no personal experience with this stick.

    I greatly prefer the LS-32. Shorter throw, slightly less pronounced dead spot in the neutral, the levers have a nice "bounce" to them to let you feel engagement before it clicks. It's the stick of choice for many old school Capcom heads and people who are into shmups. So far I'm enjoying it more than the JLF.

    While the JLF is popular, general consensus is that it's sort of the "all-arounder" stick that does nothing well and nothing bad. But the build quality is nice as well on both sticks.

    A worn out Sanwa JLF will feel better than a worn out LS-32 imo, but in either case, a general cleaning + relubing will get things feeling new. For me, Seimitsu LS-32 has so far been my favorite (and the most popular Seimitsu stick) and Sanwa JLW is my favorite Sanwa stick.
  • Re: What is a frame trap?

    Can someone answer this question? I hear it everywhere, but I have no idea where it is. I've searched around, but couldn't find an answer, just a list of them for each character.

    Please and thanks :O

    It's a way of leaving a brief gap in your offensive to catch people who are pressing buttons during your blockstring. This is done by changing the timing of your attacks, and/or using a move with certain frame properties to land a counterhit combo on someone.

    It's a pretty important tool in anyone's offense in order to land big damage.

    There was some discussion earlier in this thread about new firmware to accommodate ps4 sticks, just wondering if/when it might be available?

    Afaik, still in the works. But on the vast majority of PS4 sticks that I've encountered, they all work on Undamned systems if set to PS3 mode and do the button config as per usual.

    The only exception to this is, of course, the PS4 pad, since it doesn't have a selector switch. I hope this changes, as it means Nuckle Du can join our tournaments ^_^

    Even the Madcatz PS4 pad works on Undamned since it has a selector switch.
  • Re: Are people losing interest in this game?

    The community has largely dwindled due to a vast majority switching over to more modern fighting games (especially SF4), or they're playing ST primarily in tournaments, or they simply don't hold anymore events.

    ST is still being played pretty competitively, especially within the past two years, but there seems to be little interest from both players and TOs in organizing offline HDR events.

    If I wanted to run a local tournament for this game, what would be the best way to set it up? I can't afford a Super Gun, would an emulator on a laptop work?

    Yup. Shmupmame or Groovymame with an ST emulator can run pretty close to arcade-perfect with the right speed settings. I highly recommend it for local gatherings.
