Left side vs right side


#1

Which are the differences when tournament players decide choosing the left side or the right one?

Advanced techniques? Glitches?


#2

motion comfort mostly

there does exist certain side specific nuances

this comes to mind: [media=youtube]sKVjpAGnMTQ[/media]

but i think the glitches work on both sides, it’s more about which way you’re facing, i.e. whether you’re facing away from your own corner, or towards.

In cvs2 there’s a corner crossup thing about advantage being on side 2 or 1. but I don’t play that game.

Good reply Khiem,

The basic idea for sides is the way the game engine recognizes which side a player is on. This is the reason why some moves/glitches/combos only work on 1 side. This is a conjecture but I believe it has to do with the fact that the game engine uses a number line (lets say -1 to 1), where zero “0” represents the middle. If this is true then the game engine cannot “register” the 0 mark (i.e. the character cannot exist on both sides simoultaneously) so the game engine Programmer probably (IMO this is true, but if someone can prove me wrong/show me otherwise I would like that very much) made 1 side of the screen 1 pixel longer (YES 1 pixel matters BIG TIME; watch the vids Khiem supplied and look to this post I did about N.ken’s ground cross using his HCF+K http://forums.shoryuken.com/showpost.php?p=4624750&postcount=102).

Hopefully that will answer your question with a technical touch.
