Probably not quite the right forum, but I figure this might be more up the tinkerers alley.
My execution sucks. And by that I mean my general motor skills are garbage. So I need to do drills. But since drills are boring, I don’t do them. Story of my life.
Now I figure: If drills were an actual game, I’d probably do them. So I’m looking for games that can be used to drill moves. What I’m looking for is games that make me do inputs and then tell me if I did them correctly and where I messed up. A big plus would be the ability to start slow – at a pace where I can conciously do the motions perfectly – and then gradually speed up until I can do them fast and reliable.
Long story short: I’m kind of looking for a Guitar Hero style game that I can repurpose for fighting game execution.
I’ve found Frets on Fire (sort of an Open Source clone of GH), which looks promising. But I’m not sure it can easily be made to support 8 + 6 distinct “strings” (directions + buttons). If it could, it’d be perfect. I know Python well enough, so I guess I could could hack the source if need be. But before I go through all that hassle, I thought I’d ask whether there is something of that sort out there already. You folks know anything of the sort?
(I know about Execution Aid, but for me it is not “immediate” enough. And it certainly isn’t a game, so it doesn’t really fit the bill)
