hey i been playing sf4 since it 1st came out, i mostly played ryu and ruffas.
now i moved on to cody for the moment. and im kinda confused with something
why is it that its hard to do a special move after already connecting 3 or 4 hits?
for example, cody’s trail #23 jump H kick, jaw crusher, crouch l.p, l.k, H ruffian kick, ex criminal upper.
I usually get to the l.k but then i do the motion for the ruffian kick but it never comes out so he does nothing after the low kick.
but i do a low kick cancel into a ruffian kick and it always comes out, so why cant it come out that easy in the combo im trying to do?
so im just trying to find a way to get the ruffian kick to come out in a combo like that. or in general, im trying to understand why special moves dont seem to come out so often in longish combos
