I wasn’t to sure where to put this thread, but “Fighting Game Discussion” seems to be ok.
I’m a 29 year old software engineer, I game religiously, I don’t even have cable. I’m not sure how my wife puts up with it.
When I was younger I used to play SFII until the sun came up, I thought I was good back then, but of course I was probably just mediocre at best. This was all console gaming unfortunately.
I just took the plunge and got a Hori RAP Ex for my 360. It seems to have excellent build quality and I will look forward to modding the heck out of it (I work on hardware as well as software, so mods are right up my alley). FIRST order of business is for me to fix the insane button layout that it came with (unless someone can make a VERY good case for me to leave it be).
Here is the crux of my dilemma: Technique. I did a little searching and came up dry. I’m trying to figure out best hand placement to learn this stick with…what do you people do? A different finger for each button? Do you primarily use certain fingers more than others?
I’m basically trying to build some real skill with arcade controls and I don’t want to start off on the wrong foot…I want to try and learn an optimal technique from the start.
Any help, guids, links, videos, tips…would all be very much appreciated.
CLIFFS: New to arcade controls, with respect to SF or SC style games…what hand placement/finger placement styles should I learn with???
