Plinking technique question

guile

#1

I’ve read the main thread and understand how (theoretically) this works, as well as many other threads with plinking troubles, but I still can’t seem to get it right. My consistency without plinking is %40 at best in training mode, but when I bring it to a match it goes down significantly.

If I understand correctly, when plinking c.lp, c.mp, I’m supposed to press c.lp, (c.mp ~ c.lp), which should look like this in training mode:

:mp: :lp:
:mp:
:lp:

But instead it always (90% of the time) looks like this:
:mp::lp:
:lp:

or this:
:lp:
:mp:
:lp:

The former meaning my inputs are too close together, and the latter meaning that they’re too far apart. For some reason, I can only rarely find middle ground for my inputs to be correct, so I’m wondering how my fingers should be positioned. It seems that if I even piano the inputs just slightly apart it’s too slow, but if I try speeding it up the c.mp only registers once.

I really want to be able to do c.lp to c.mp consistently but am trying to no avail, if somebody could give me some pointers it would be greatly appreciated. :wgrin:

You’re supposed to get:
:mp::lp:
:mp:

When you plink :mp:. When you get c.lp ~ c.mp, you need to press c.lp, then plink the mp. Which means you’re pressing the :mp::lp: together at the same time and not slightly off of one another.

You need to press :mp: THEN :lp: (quickly) to get it to plink.

Did you really have to start a new thread for this…

u start off with 40% success rate, and it’ll become 90% without you even realizing it.


#4

I suggest you practice only plinking first, i.e., c.mp ~ c.lp only. Practice it so that you can consistently do it, then add c.lp before the plink.


#5

I already understand the fact that I have to press them slightly apart, but if you looked at my inputs, I’m either pressing them too close together (simultaneously) or too far apart, resulting in those two inputs I posted. I’m just saying that I can’t get it in between, which is odd because most people seem to have no trouble with it.

Ah why didn’t I think of that? Will definitely try that out…


#6

just for the record, the lp is in front of the mp in the example pics because thats the way it shows in the input display in ssf4.


#7

every idle thought requires a new thread, silly.


#8

Can someone link me to where the explanation is of the actually art of plinking with guile? I’ve taken a look at combo threads etc but i want to really take a look at some in depth explanations if possible. I’m sorry if this is an inconvenience but if someone can find that for me it would be greatly appreciated =)

NVM. Somehow after searching found it right after posting. Here it is for all who don’t know.
