Okay I know there are a ton of threads on how to hold your joystick. I’ve looked and I can’t seem to find the answer to my questions, so I thought I’d make another thread.
This question is related to placing your fingers on the buttons and which buttons requires which finger to be pressed.
Lets use three examples.
For the street fighter set-up I use index to push both light buttons, Middle to push both Mediums and Ring finger to push the Hard buttons.
I’m assuming most players use these fingers the same way as well.
I believe the most common way to pushing buttons for Virtua Fighter is the Thumb on the Guard button and your index finger on Punch and Middle finger on Kick. However I’ve seen some players map it so that they use their index finger on Guard, Middle finger for Punch and Ring for Kick.
I like using Thumb on (G), Index on § and Middle on (K)
Guilty Gear XX
Thumb on §, Index (K), Middle (MS), Ring (HS) and (D)
Guilty Gear is my main concern because out of the three layouts I’ve been having a lot of problems with using my Thumb on Punch. My preference is not to use the Thumb and only use my Index fingers for Both Punch and Kick. I find if I use my Thumb, it gets pretty ackword and I tend to mess up on combos. But if I just use my Index I find that sometimes I don’t react quick enough and I’m too slow to connect combos.
What do you guys use to input your commands? Do you use your Thumbs or do you use your Index exclusively for that row of buttons?
