I’m trying to learn Ryu’s Shoryuken -> FADC -> Ultra, and I’ve gotten it down successfully a few times in near succession. Of course, I’d like to get it down consistently, so I’ve continued practicing this. While I’m glad to have finally done something that seemed near impossible at first, I’ve run into a problem. When I try to do a shoryuken to start everything off, it just will not come out. I turned on input display to see why it wouldn’t come out, and it turns out I’m hitting the punch button much too early. I can do shoryukens very consistently no problem, but as soon as I enter FADC Ultra mode, they just can’t come out, and I end up FADC’ing a punch animation instead. If I try to slow down for my shoryukens, then I’m not in a “fast” enough mindset to FADC the shoryuken before it’s too late. This is more frustrating than when I first started out and just couldn’t get the Ultra out fast enough.
Any advice on how to “slow down” for combo-ing in a situation like this?
