I can't figure this out


#1

I’m a person who is playing street fighter for the first time seriously with four and I can’t seem to get my mind around the zig-zag motion required for moves like Shoryuken. Does anyone know of a video of somebody doing this so I can see what I’m doing wrong?


#2

On a pad or keyboard you can think of it as “forward, down, forward, punch” instead. On stick too I guess, but the real input is easier to do with that.


#3

look at the arrows of this site’s logo at the top, that’s what the motions are.

:dp::p:

You are either:

a) trolling
b) lost
c) don’t know how to read previous threads
d) not using the shortcuts:

Can you do a fireball? Just hold forward and right after do a fireball and you’ll get a shoryuken.


#5

Couldn’t you have just said that instead of the stupid shit you said mentioned before it?


#6

Thank you I figured it out


#7

This guy seems like a legitimate noob, and not trolling. A shoryuken is done by doing :dp: :lp:. In SFIV you can also do :df::df: with the shortcuts they have.

EDIT: well, since you’ve already figured it out now you’ll soon be complaining how the shortcut interferes with other moves like the rest!


#8

No he couldn’t.


#9

In fairness, if SF IV has the same diagrams as previous versions then it is kind of confusing.

It looks like a Z in the diagram which would lead you to believe you have to use down-back, but as we all know that’s not the case.

Granted, a decent search may have found the answers too.

I do :r: :qcf: :p: because it’s easier on pads, thumbsticks, and keyboards.

I remember the original snes move list had it like :qcf::d::df::p:

I was like the only one who could do dragon punches (on purpose) for the longest time on the snes pad by mashing out :qcf:X2 :p:

If all else fails: :df::df: + :hp:
Use the shortcut.
