I’m having great trouble adjusting to the SF4 TE stick’s layout, specifically I can’t do QTC right well and some other problems, I easily press up right instead of just right and I’m thinking it’s because the stick is so close to the buttons that my arm is aligned like / this.
Whereas with the old SAT joysticks I have I can do everything better, especially DP motions. While the TE is like joystick */// (representing also button alignment) the SAT sticks are like * \\ which for me is just much more comfortable. Also I like how the Japanese Saturn stick resists somewhat, well, since it’s pretty old, and as I read some joystick threads here I noticed talk about how american parts resist more - I like the sound of that, and with the buttons too.
Anyway, obviously the old SAT games (Night Warriors, SFA2, Virtua Fighter Remix which would be my favourite fighting game, and VF2) are a lot slower than SSF4 which I’m playing on the PS3 but I think I have played enough that I know I wouldn’t use TE for much else than spaceship shooting games or run 'n gun games (doesn’t seem to be a lot of those on the PS3, or any games in general, but I can’t help that).
And onto randomquestions. So I have mained Dee Jay online after trying some Bison, not very successfully mostly as there’s a couple of things I can’t quite grasp. As in when you can start to input when you’re waking up, can you attack in any way if somebody’s hitting you with a string of attacks when you block or do you have to wait, and what is going on when I’m trying to do the U2, do the input, nothing at all happens, I’d at least except some random punch or MGU, but is this some common glitch or something? Oh and when do you input your AA command, at the apex of the jump or before? Because I’m getting a lot of nothing + getting hit in the face when trying to AA. I assume the various AA moves have that much startup save for maybe shoto DP’s?
