I picked up MvC3 a little after it came out and played with the PS3 gamepad.
A couple months ago I picked up SSF4(+AE) and my friend let me borrow his fight stick (which, after getting used to it, is awesome).
Because I started MvC3 with a controller, my execution is really bad with a stick so I had a few questions:
I use R2 to air dash but from what I’ve heard from videos and stuff you never used to be able to dash with just one button (in MvC2 I think?). When I see people doing ROM loops and stuff like that are they actually double pressing in a direction or do they use the button? I’m so used to using a button to dash that when I use a stick I have to use the button for dashing or else I dash too slow.
Is there a preferred layout for the buttons? I know it’s all person preference but I wanted to see what other people use. The default button layout is a little weird.
I actually do enjoy playing MvC3 with a gamepad but if I play for a long time my thumb gets calloused, plus the stick is fun to use.
