I’ve tried getting it down on a regular 360 controller, but it seems I have to switch the buttons around so X is mp and Y is lp to get it to work, and that would take A LOT of time to adjust to … plus it’s still not 100% accurate when I do it that way (sometimes get EX, for instance). As of now I need to use stick to nail mpxxhands consistently, but I’m worse at combos in general and movement on stick. Figure a 6-button layout fightpad would be my best bet. Any tips on good ones? Used to own the Madcatz SFIV one, but the d-pad was pretty bad and it broke after a month.
Also, not that it belongs to this discussion, but I might as well ask for how many frames you have to nail st m mp>hp and lp>hp. First one isn’t so troublesome, but I sometimes miss the second. Figure it’s probably a 2-frame link, but it could be 1-frame as well. I usually do cr lk x2>cr or st lp>tcxxGekiro if that makes any difference for the second combo (figuring you might get more frames to link the hp if you’ve done several lights before it, making your last lp hit on a later fram and thus giving you a better frame advantage).
