HDR speeds (USA)


#1

The game seems slower than SSF2T dreamcast or arcade when HDR is on the default speed 3. Speed 4 seems like a closer match in terms of speed. What will Evo or other tournaments use as the basis for the speed?


#2

Speed 3 in HDR is slower than US Speed 2, I don’t think there is any equivalent to US or Japanese arcade speeds with Remix mode, I guess we need a video to confirm if Classic mode speeds are similar to the Dreamcast version.

Also consider that Dreamcast/HDR don’t have random speeds depending on stage like the arcade version.

It doesn’t really matter to me that the new default speed 3 is different from whatever other speeds exist in various versions of ST. This is essentially a new game, so getting used to a different speed shouldn’t be a big deal.

However, what I don’t get is why the speed seems *way *different between online and offline at the same setting. Offline speed 3 feels way slower than online speed 3. I only noticed this in the past few weeks after going to a couple of HDR tournaments, because I spend 99% of my time playing online.

Has this been known for a while? Did anyone post a bug to Capcom about it? It’d be fantastic if this was fixed in the patch. I don’t care which speed is used, I’d just like it to be consistent.


#4

Online speed is random, depends on the connection just like how sometimes games on GGPO feel slower even at speed 3.


#5

But that’s what seems odd to me. If it was like GGPO, where it slowed down during a really laggy match I could understand it being due to the netcode trying to catch up. But in HDR online always seems faster, regardless of what the ping is.


#6

Yep, I had the same impression when Remix first dropped. Online speed 3 is roughly the same as offline speed 4, but way faster than offline speed 3. Don’t know what’s up with that, but should be the other way around.


#7

When comparing game footage, HDR Speed 3 appears to match Japanese Arcade Speed 3 pretty much perfectly. If anything, it’s the console ports of ST that are too fast.

As for online; the rollback/smoothing probably just makes it seem faster.
