I’ve recently been playing SSFIV (i’ve had it for a while but only started to really play now). I tried the trials (forgot what they are called) - when you practice doing combos and it shows you what attacks the computer wants you to do vs Dan. (and if you hit select, it shows you the keys to press).
I was trying I think, 8 or 9, where it has crouch light kick, crouch jab, then stand and fierce punch. AFter many tries, I’ve got it, but when i try again, same issue. I takes many tries and it kinda happens.
What I noticed, if I hit the buttons fast, ie. light kick and then jab, the jab doesn’t occur; maybe I’m hitting the buttons too fast? It’s not like, StarCraft 2 for example, where if you click mouse around the map many times fast, it registers each click.
Thus, my questions are:
could this be a problem with my stick (real arcade pro 3)? should i buy the madcatz tournament edition stick since I hear the quality is the best?
when doing proper combos, do i need to hit the buttons at very specific times (ie. right when first attack makes contact, or first attack finishes and the animations starts to go back to normal, etc)? Maybe my timing is way off, hence the issues I’m having.
I haven’t really tried the plinking thing yet; need time for me to understand the normal stuff before I even bother with that
Thanks for any help.
PS: I use Akuma but I assume the combo questions are generic
