I play the PC version, with a PS2 dual-shock + adaptor. Square and triangle are LP and MP, X and O are LK and MK, left shoulder buttons are throw and FA, right shoulders are HP and HK.
I have had the game since my birthday November last year. Got 59:25 hrs play time, 807 BP and 874 max BP, 545 fights, 108 wins, 19.81% win rate and a win streak of 3.
I shame the name of Cammy with my poor skills. I main Cammy all the time, and I’m seeking to up my game and I’m looking for advice. I’m still in the “mastering controls” stage. I always use the dpad on the controller (the stick is too imprecise to do dashes consistently). I’ve finally gotten to the point where I can do hooligans 90% of the time, although occasionally I’ll go through a phase of forgetting how to execute. I’m also rather lamely having to look at the controller sometimes to make sure my fingers are in the right position. I assume it’s possible to master the pad. I don’t really know any combos yet although it’s fairly often I pull some off by sheer accident.
Here are some random questions… some of these may not be Cammy-exclusive questions, I’m not sure:
- Executing ultra by accident. I have a tendancy to button-mash to make sure my attack registers while in an animation, but if I’m trying to perform a spiral arrow or cannon spike oftentimes I pull off the ultra instead at an untimely moment. I need to get a feel for when the game will “remember” my button presses, and when it won’t (for instance, at the start of the fight before “FIGHT” appears, I can queue my first attack–but how early can I start queueing when I’m falling from the air or such?).
- Executing cannon spike by accident. When I mean to do spiral arrow but was moving forward previously. I’m guessing there’s no way to avoid this except to just stand there for a second until the game “forgets” your forward button-press.
- Fireballs are my bane. Once my opponent starts spamming fireballs I start to lose my edge. What I want to know is when spiral arrow can go under the fireballs? Sometimes she slides right under it, othertimes she goes straight into it.
- Does the backward-throw (that the right name for it?) serve any purpose that the regular throw does not? I.e. is doing a frankensteiner more appropriate than attempting a suplex in some contexts?
If anyone has some general advice they could pitch in as well I’d be appreciative.
