So I am just over a week old into SSF4. I am losing the 4th level of arcade mode on medium(frustrated), and I just got my Qanba Q3 arcade stick in the mail yesterday…
Stick question first… - I was playing with the controller layout on my 8 button Qanba Q3. I have already learned within 20 minutes that it is more effective to play with 6 buttons and use the 2x focus attacks. I know nothing of how great players play and I know it all comes down to personal preference… However, I know there are certain layouts that are widely used and I am wondering which I should be using… I just went into options and noticed there is an Arcade Stick layout… Should I be using this?? What are your thoughts and what can you offer in terms of help/layouts.
Mentor help… - I was also wondering if someone could take some time on Xbox Live to introduce me to what is the fighter genre and tips / basic combos / training to get me going. I am not some complete scrub who is ignorant to learning and will take everything you have to offer with a good mindset. I grew up a competitive gamer mostly in the FPS genre… I got extremely good because I had tips to offer and never let my attitude hinder me from hearing and learning techniques/ideas from other people… Everyone has something to offer.
When I got online in SSF4, I was told to play with Ryu or Ken to get a general understanding for the game… I have been playing with Ryu, and have had little success.
I am hoping someone with a great deal of knowledge can help me… I am more than willing to learn!
Thanks a lot… Gamertag is “yo im garbage” Please add or post GT here if you’re willing to help… I will have to use my controller when we practice because for some stupid reason, the Qanba’s mic ports echo on xbox live…
Look forward to your help,
