Standing 720 Still possible in SSF4

EDIT: STILL POSSIBLE. Disregard my earlier comments about not being possible in super.

A true unbuffered 720 is possible in the game, however it is nowhere near practical:

However, there is another option to do a practical method in pulling off a walking/standing 720:

The general idea is to buffer a 360 off of something (minimum input for a 360 is really just an old tiger knee motion :r::df::d::db::l::ub:), a jump, a whiffed/blocked/hit jab, take a step forward slightly, then do another old tiger knee motion (:r::df::d::db::l::ub:) and end with :lp::mp::hp:.

Buffer this into something: :r::df::d::db::l::ub: -> walk forward or backward 1 step -> :r::df::d::db::l::ub: :lp::mp::hp:

Visual on how it’s done:

what? who the f*ck can perform a standing ultra in a match? i’ve never seen such thing


#3

It’s not THAT hard. Some guys can even do it on pad. Now THAT is a feat.


#4

You mean while buffering, or just … out of the blue ? :-o


#5

Out of the blue. Walk up 720!


#6

i have seen it in videos but i have never ever heard of someone doing a standing 720 outside of blazblue and 3rd strike… i seen a video but people could have used a tool assisted controller to do but never a human doing in on the sf4’s engine.


#7

pasky since everybody doubts a standing ultra i’d propose that u go training mode and or give us a youtube link where u saw that


#8

I just did it and made a video, I’m converting it to upload it now. It’s tool assisted (I used a keyboard macro on PC SF4), but I can do it manually on an arcade stick but not nearly as consistent, maybe like 3/10 tries I get it. I can’t do it at all in SSF4.

I wouldn’t lie bro.

Gief has 6 pre-jump frames, if you can get it out before that, you get the standing 720.

It seems in SSF4, they made it so that if you did the directionals before 6 frames it won’t come out. Same thing with Akuma’s Demon Armageddon. If you double tap up really fast you won’t get it, there is a pre-determined amount of frames they have to be apart.


#9

yeah, uh, I still prefer to use a taunt + 720x3P for the hilarity it ensues. :slight_smile:


#10

LOL. I saw someone do that today, some scrub ken whiffed a Shinryuken. Gief taunted and 720. Love gief’s face on his taunt, haha.


#11

that’s why it’s useless.
it essentially means u are doing a 7-frames mp range throw.
will anyone be stupid enough to let u walk into mp 360 range, doing nothing and caught by ur 7- frame throw ?


#12

Converted, uploading now.


#13

Like I said, it wasn’t part of his game, but it was a great shenanigan, not useless, just not very practical. I’ve seen some pad gief player do a standing 720 a couple times in a real tourney.


#14

you again?
it ain’t useless, and doing a standing 720 as Gief is not the same as doing a throw with 7 frames of startup…


#15

Here you go folks:

Quality will improve over time, it’s just uploaded. I made it good quality so should look very nice when youtube is down processing.


#16

i have seen video’s of it but i haven’t seen a video of a person actually doing it. http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GLuU7_GTWw

i just seen this one … also i just looked it up but man how in the fuck do you pull something like this off


#17

u are joking, u need 6 more pre-jump frames to start 720.
so essentially means when u could pull a lp 360. u will need go futher and use 5 more frames (ideally) to start a throw
how come this is not an essential 7 frames throw?


#18

It’s really not that hard with an arcade stick. A little bit of practicing it and you can get it at least 25% of the time. Just gotta be quick and you don’t have to really do a 720, just a need to register (assuming from the left):

RIGHT
DOWN
LEFT
UP
RIGHT
DOWN
LEFT

So it’s more of a 540 than a 720. and you you only need to get the 2nd “circle” since you’re starting from the right.


#19

i still do concour with the other guy this is completely useless at high levels of play… shit even a noob level of play. your telling trying to input a 720 motion or a 540 motion( some guy said that on his youtube video thing) is possible in a real match … never. i have seen hundreds of sf4 zangief videos and not one ever ever ever showed a gief doing a standing ultra no buffer…useless plain and simple

edit:

SO BASICALLy you have to input one directional input per frame … i would love to see someone actually showing hand puts instead of using something that does it for it… it kind of defeats the purpose of it’s difficulty lol


#20

You could essentially use it anywhere you could walk up SPD. Is walk up SPD impractical for you too?
