Hello everyone. I have a quick question.
I haven’t had SF4 for long, just a few months, actually. I really love the game though, probably too much! I play it when I’m done with college and work just about every day. I have one huge problem though. I started playing on the keyboard, using my left hand to control attacks, and my right hand to control movement. I’ve actually gotten pretty decent with this. I can pull off ryu’s FADC --> DP or Ultra, Focus --> Dash --Ultra with ken, and I can even juggle into Chun-Li’s ex-bird fairly well. (I can even use Gief’s ultra!!! It’s kind of a pain though.)
But! I want to get serious about the game, serious enough to join tournaments someday. So I went and got a fairly cheap Hori FS3, and I’ve been practicing like crazy with it. It seems like to matter what I do, I just can’t get used to the double quarter circle motion to the right. I’ve only had it for about a week, but I’ve practiced with it a ton already and it’s starting to get frustrating.
So, what’s your recommendation? Should I keep using keyboard if I want to be serious? Or is that just unrealistic, since I can’t really use a keyboard in a tournament?
Is there some thread I can talk about controlling a stick?
(Sorry for the whole mess of questions. I thank you for your help!)
