Beginner’s question about meaties here. Situation: I’m trying to learn Nash’s meaty pressure setups using this tutorial video. Assuming that frame data hasn’t changed since the video, I don’t seem to fully understand either “frame perfect” and/or “manual” meaties.
I initially thought that frame perfect means I can’t afford to have any idle frames in the sequence, or I’ll be too late. In other words I have to input everything seamlessly. But I can easily do this supposedly frame perfect sequence (video time 3:30) way too fast, so that my cr.MP whiffs and I get hit by the wakeup reversal move (Zangief’s lariat). It works if I slow down a bit. So I have to manually delay the normal… = manual meaty? Can anyone explain what might be happening or what I’m misunderstanding?
Any help is appreciated!
PS. If I use a jab as the wakeup move, it doesn’t say “Reversal” on the opponent’s side, even though while recording it does. I can also hit them without it being a counterhit, which led me to think the game is somehow leaving an idle frame before launching the jab. I gave up for now and switched the wakeup move to lariat.
