So I’ve been practicing on my Arcade stick on SFIV. I have the TE SFIV one. I have standard setup, top 3 white buttons, LP,MP, HP and Lower ones the Kicks. However I set the top Black Button to Focus attack. It’s really the only way I can focus cancel my moves on the stick.
So my main thought was am I gimping myself by setting it up so that a button will Focus Attack for me? Specially since arcades (unless I’m wrong, which might be) only have 6 buttons for the Punches and Kicks? Should I take the time to learn it the Natural command way, by hitting MP+MK then dashing? Or does it not matter?
Also on a side not, should I practice my combos on a dummy or go online and actually play live opponents? I’d go to an arcade but I know of none around here, sides maybe downtown (Chicago).
