Does E.Ryu have 2 frame links?

I understand that Double Tapping is very effective when it comes to 2-frame links, so I was just wondering which links in particular are 2-frame for E. Ryu? Thanks!


#2

The only ones really worth doing off the top of my head are:

  1. MK Axe Kick to cr.LP
  2. cr.LP to cr.MP

Obviously this doesn’t include links off counter hit.


#3

Thanks a lot. So for 2 frame links, I should utilize double-tapping specifically correct? I don’t quite understand the technical reasons why it doesn’t work for 1 frame links.


#4

what exactly are 2 frame links or links in general?


#5

Yes, double-tapping is specifically correct. It doesn’t work for 1-frame links because the game engine doesn’t allow mashing of the same button to register one frame apart. It was made that way so you couldn’t mash out combos.


#6

Let’s take the link cr.LP to cr.MP for example.

cr.LP on hit has 5 frames of hit stun.
cr.MP has 4 frames of start up.
The fourth frame of cr.MP is active.
Therefore 5-4+1= 2. It’s a two frame link.

Don’t worry about it then.
