This is a really important question, it needs to be stickied in my opinion.
What is the correct damage setting for PS2 3S, 2 stars or 3 stars?
I have heard that the default damage setting on PS2 (2 Stars) for 3S is actually different to the arcade. I have suspected this for a long time myself as I have noticed some of my combos KO opponents in the arcade when they don’t on console. Anyway, is the correct damage setting for the PS2 3 stars, or is it some bad programming where actually the damage is somewhere between 2 and 3 stars, but neither is correct. I help run 3S competition on console and we had been running it on two star. If this is incorrect, it goes without saying that we want to change over straight away. I did a search for this topic already, but I would really like the definitive answer so I can be certain. Thanks.
