So I never had this issue playing in arcades way back in the day, mostly cuz of the straight button layout I think. hadnt played fighting games seriously in like 10 years except casual games with friends on playstation and such on pad.
Been playing about half a year now again on my ps3 in SSF4 and MvC3 mainly on a TE stick and noticed I’ve developed a “thumb” problem. I always seem to hit my short button with my thumb as it just seems to naturally rest over that button on the stick.(Whether I use the first six or last six buttons on the stick)
In Marvel it’s okay but in SF instead of moving my three fingers from the top three to the bottom three I’m using my thumb and first two fingers on the bottom three buttons, and it totally throws off my combos and timings, specially switching between the two games.
Besides just sitting in training mode and practicing are there any other tips I may not be thinking of to break my thumb habit? Just curious
