Similar question related to focus attacks.
Is it possible to keep your charge after a hit focus attack (dashing in after hit) and when do the inputs need to be?
For example, as guile i land a lvl2 fa. Naturally here i want to do as much damage as possible. If i have ultra and im on the ball i can land it fully even as they’re about to hit the ground. Often times, however, i don’t have enough charge for a cr.mp xx FK or the FK whiffs due to the reset after a late cr.mp. I’ve ended up following most fa’s with b.HK, cr.lp xx SB though that’s a tricky link as well.
Is this issue just lazy timing or is there a way to keep your db charge while charging a focus attack after you dash forward?
So as an intermediate SF4 player i get most of the basics of frame data of moves and such. However, when it comes to focus attacks i’m unsure. I’ll get to the point.
This is assuming the attacker has dashed in after the attack.
Who has frame advantage on blocked lvl1, hit lvl1, and blocked lvl2?
Does it vary depending on the character’s dash speed or even the FA speed?
Also (definite Newbie Saikyo question) what is the use of a non-FA backdash?
