There isn’t really an easier method with pad over stick. Personally, I find it way easier on stick regardless of it being on an octagonal(instead of square gate) like some have said but then again, it is “preference” How you do it on pad? I learned it with the default button layouts. The only part that has a sort of strict timing in the actual execution of Fk- FADC- U2 is the dash…period. Anyone can Flash kick, Focus attack, and Dash. The trick in landing this is to get the dashing and buffering in combination on lock. For scrubs starting this out(No offense) you don’t even need to do the flash kick to get this part down. You can stat by getting in the lab and holding back. Start with the forward dash ultra for the sake of just learning. Once you have that charge, press and hold the focus attack, input the Forward dash(–>, -->) This is the important part while guile is dashing forward, you do NOT wait for him to finish dashing before inputting the rest of the ultra. You have to have to HAVE TO buffer the rest of the ultra AS he is dashing. Meaning while guile is in that dash animation you are inputting the remaining buttons to the Ultra sequence(<–, --> 3p) as he is finishing the dash. Sf4 is pretty lenient on inputs so you don’t have to bust too much of a mission to land it and it doesn’t have to be perfect, so long as you get the buffering technique down. Surprisingly, it doesn’t have to be done quick as fk either. Think about it, once you have dashed out of the flash kick, all you have to do is back, towards+3ps. The next important thing to learn is how long you have to delay the Focus, this part kinda sucks. If your too close, you cross under and Ultra the complete opposite way from the air borne opponent and this st SUCKS in real time fights when that juggle was all it friggin took to win so it PAYS to learn this timing. It mostly has to do with range and strength of flash kick used at times but eventually from doing it so damn much you get an eye for it. All I can say about that when first learning it is don’t let go of the focus attack until you you see that your opponent will be IN FRONT OF YOU after you dash, it isn’t like Ryu’s SRK-FADC U1 where you can immediately dash and ultra. The timing will get easier and it’s just awesome. Hope it made sense. =) I almost forgot to mention that once you get the dash ultra part down and you start adding the flash kick into the equation, you have to do the flashkick from a downback charge to an upback charge so that when you dash you have never lost “charge” for the ultra input. So to sum up once you have charged down back for your flashkick, you do upback+kick to start flashkick hold focus attack on contact and input forward, forward, back, forward+3p, NEVER LET GO OF BACK AND GO INTO NUETRAL WHEN YOUR DOING THE DASH. The moment you stall you WILL lose charge. Go directly from that upback charge to forward forward and if you have to delay the timing a bit, you hold that up back until it is time to dash.
