Hey guys, been a member for a few weeks now, and I’ve been a SF player for many many years.
I’m having a bit of an issue making a transition from Dpad to arcade stick.
Like I said, I’ve been playing SF since as far back as I can remember, but , always with a Dpad.
I can do just about any move with the dpad, and adapt quickly to different fighters with it as well, but I’ve always sucked major ass in the arcade since I had no clue how to execute moves with a stick.
I’ve avoided arcades in an effort to maintain my credibility, since I felt if I lost at the arcade, people would think I sucked period, when in fact, I could always beat whoever beat me in the arcade with the dpad.
Anyway, I’ve been working with the TE stick on Ps3 (sf4 and SfhdR) for some time now, and I cannot, for the life of me, do input command supers (like Ryu’s fireball, Fei Longs Ultra, etc) on that thing.
I can ge tthem out 85 percent of the time from P2 side, but from P1 side, I cannot pull it off effectively, only about 5-10 percent of the time, which keeps costing me many matches.
I can play well with chargers on it, but I do tend to get “stuck” on P1 side when crouching.
Are there any people here who have transitioned 100 percent from a dpad to a stick, and would be willoing to give me a few pointers?
I’m thinking it might be my hand placement, or my general move inputs on the stick, not sure, but I know if I’m going to find someone who’s gone through this, it’d be here.
Thanks in advance, sorry for the wall-o-text.
