I know there are a lot of threads about this, but i need to ask about very specific things.
BTW i have always played with a dpad and im very good with it (im around #250-300 in sf2 hd turbo remixs scoreboard). So please dont call me a scrub and read on because i need advice from great stick players.
I just got madcatz ps3 fightstick regular version and obviously i suck using it so i need to know a few things:
- How many fingers should i use, i mean what would be my neutral finger position on the stick and how many fingers should be used to press the face buttons.
For instance, there are 4 face buttons L, M, H, 3 for both punches and kicks, should i maybe use all four fingers except my thumb or maybe just index, middle and ring fingers and move those three fingers around?
Should i use the 3P / 3K button or press all 3 punch or kick buttons?
Where should i put the controller, i mean i usually place it on my lap but i cant assume a variety of comfortable positions i used to be able to assume using my gamepad. Should i maybe get a counter to place it on top of? Is it better?
Ive noticed that there are two very different levels of force i need to apply in order to move the stick forward or backwards. I mean, its very different for me to pull of a SRK facing forward where i basically have to push on the stick than trying to pull it off facing left where i would be pulling on it. (its a LOT easier for me to pull off everything when im pulling than when im pushing).
So i was wondering if maybe theres a hand position on the stick that would make this difference less pronounced?.
Should i be cupping the ball on top with my palm and hand semi open, maybe i should close my hand all the way cupping the ball or maybe i shouldnt cup the ball at all and just sort of push with my palm on the tip of the stick. Which would you recommend? Im asking because since im going to get used to this i want to get used to the method that works the best from the get go.
how the fffff can i pull off giefs ULTRA ??? I cant for the life of me pull it off on my stick. Which motion would you recommend to make it easier?
Should my arm be getting tired when i play? i mean, i used to use only my thumb and the change to using my arm means i get tired more easily, at least for the moment.
Thanks a lot.
