Fightpad Move Compensation?

I read something here at

it says:

"SFIV accepts shortcuts for some of these motions:

  • DP - can be performed as DF,D,DF; in other words tap the stick into the lower corner twice. Also DF,D,DB,D,DF,D,DB; in other words wiggle the stick from one lower corner to the other and back.

Useful when you are guarding low, or when you are being crossed up.

  • 360 - can be performed as F,DF,D,DB,B,UB or B,DB,D,DF,F,UF. In other words, a 225 degree rotation ending in up and back or up and forward. Reduces the chance of jumping."

Can anyone confirm this if you have SF4 + fightpad?

Wouldn’t this be how you do it anyway? That’s not really a shortcut.

not news

umm, isnt this called buffering.

How is this related to tech?
