Hey everyone,

I am just getting started in SF4 and so far it is a blast. I am the type of person who is big into muscle memory and I only want to have the most efficient combos in my muscle memory.

With that in mind, I was in training mode with Ryu and was attempting to perform c.hp -> shoryuken. I acciendentaly stumbled upon something interesting. I could only press HP once and perform both moves! I would press hp during my shoryuken motion and it would perform both the c.hp AND the SRK. I have been looking around the internet for someone who describes this phenomenon but cant find anything.

Here’s my exact input. I did [ f , df , d , df + hp , f ].

I’d like to know exactly what this is and exactly how I can replicate it so I can avoid pressing unnecessary buttons from the get go. Thanks!
