Non fighting system changes I would like:
Rematch option for endless lobbies with only 2 players
If only two people are playing, give us a rematch option like in offline mode. If one player wants to switch characters, they can choose to go back to the character select screen
Restart option from the pause menu
During an offline match, there should be a “Restart” option available from the Pause menu. Currently the only way to restart a match is to finish the current one or to go back to the char select screen
Button config on char select screen for offline play
There should be an option to change your controls from the character select screen instead of having to go into a match, change it, and then restart.
Increase battle log to 150 replays
Option to hide player names from replays (either P1/P2 or both)
On Xbox the names appear as PLAYER1/PLAYER2 if you watch replays offline. I’d prefer an option to remove them completely.
Select BGM (P1/P2/Stage/Random) by pressing back/select at stage select
When selecting a stage, you should be able to specify whether you want stage music, player 1/2 character BGM, or random (any one of the three).
Random character select doesn’t seem very random
It is very possibly broken because of the problems detailed here:
Option to eliminate certain stages from Random Stage select
Random stage select is cool, but there are some stages I just don’t ever want to see offline (Volcanic Rim, Training Mode). Add this under the options menu.
Fix Gouken and Akuma’s BGMs
They have their own BGMs, so let us hear them during matches.
Option to set health in training mode: Regular/Infinite/Zero/Fixed amount
This is for testing combo damage without life scaling. Currently you have to wait for the dummy’s health to regenerate to do this
Option to set dummy to not block on wake up even though autoguard is on
Sometimes you want to test jump-in combos, but this is not currently possibly with autoguard because they will always block the first attack soon after wakeup
Dummy wakeup option: Special, normal, throw, (high/low) block, jump, backdash, custom, random
This will make it MUCH easier to test safe jumps and option selects. To make it even simpler, just let us choose which option we want the dummy to perform on wakeup.
Option to switch P1 and P2 chars (and Ultras) in training mode without going to char select screen
Extend dummy recording time (I think SFxT is unlimited?)
This is a must-have. Sometimes you want to test post Ultra setups but the Ultras take so long that you don’t have enough time to record full setups.
Online training mode
Ability to switch training stage
Ability to pick old versions of chars like in HSFII AE
Yes, we want to know if Vanilla Sagat is stronger than AE Yun. However, give us an option to disable old characters in online lobbies
Lower the amount of time allowed to select character/stage online
It really doesn’t need to be that long.
Allow a player to “opt-out” of their next turn online
Useful for when a host creates but doesn’t want to participate (eg. SRKLive, PJS). Add an option so that X missed turns = kick, unless you’re the host to prevent people from clogging up endless lobbies.
X-platform online play?
Specifically, Sagat’s SFII stage, Cammy’s ST stage. In fact all the SFII stages plzkthnx.
Also like the idea of meter gain display in training mode, and of course hit-boxes.
Just remembered I’d also like a battle diagram that shows you how well you perform against the rest of the cast. Arcade Vanilla had this feature in the setup menu IIRC.
