Yes, I am using a stick. It’s the first time I’ve ever seriously tried to learn stick after spending the last 20 years of my life playing on a pad, so even though I’ve had it for a month or so it still feels unnatural sometimes. It’s a problem I’m aware of and am working to fix.
Lag is generally not terrible, but not ideal. 90% of my matches are 3-bar matches or less. Granted, some of the 1-bar matches are actually still fairly responsive, but it really depends. My PS3 is wireless right now so that may be contributing to the problem; I just moved into a new apartment, and our router location is too far from the PS3 to use the same ethernet cable I was using before. I’ll probably go to Best Buy and just buy a really long ethernet cable sometime soon.
I have tried to avoid posting some of the laggier matches I’ve recorded.
One last troubleshooting issue – if anyone has any experience with the Dazzle Digital Video Recorder, I am noticing that once in a while my videos move in slow motion while the audio continues at regular speed. On videos where this gets bad the slow-mo can last almost the entire match and then sort of play catch-up in the last 15 seconds where everything ultra-speeds to the end of the match.
Anyone know what causes that issue? I am guessing that it’s lag but I don’t really know for sure.
Oh. Forgot something.
The early execution on the EX SBK is sometimes intentional. I have gotten into the bad habit of executing moves occasionally too early (or on anticipation) because of the lag that I get while playing online. In a lot of matches I can execute the EX SBK right when I see myself about to get hit, but it won’t come out because of the lag and I end up getting hit.
My logic in that regard sort of goes, as long as he didn’t hit me and I took off some of his life, it’s all good.
