I’ve just recently started getting back into fighting games, since a long hiatus (stopped playing around MK3 / Tekken 3 time). I’ve been practicing a bit with SSFIV:AE, but no matter what I do I can not land the full circle back motions with any sort of ease in training, let alone in battle.
Take for example Zangief’s Final Atomic Buster, I have not been able to land that once in training. Occasionally I can do the spinning pile driver, which is 1 motion. Most of the time I end up jumping.
I have a Hori EX2 that I picked up on the cheap (figured I’d invest in a TE stick if I keep my interest long enough), with the stock square gate. Any thoughts or suggestions how to make this move easier to hit? When I look at the input display it looks like the arrows are going around properly, it just doesn’t execute.
Just for clarification, I’m referring to the motion below, specifically the 2x part of that for ultra / supers. Any help would be appreciated.
