After years of playing ST, I absolutely prefer the Dreamcast version over the Cps2 arcade. The one frame input lag difference is very negligible for me.
differences in the Dreamcast’s 1994/02/23 version (compared to the arcade version)
Instead of “PUSH START”, it says "PRESS START"
Almost no difference in stage speeds
Difficult to kill and dizzy at the same time using Honda’s command throw
O.Chun’s reversal fireball glitch is removed (in the arcade version the strength didn’t correspond to what button you pressed)
Guile makes a grunt when he does his kick air throw
No hit noise during Hawk’s Fierce punch throw
Hawk’s Jab and Strong 360 sounds don’t get cut off
Fei Long can’t cancel rapid fire st.Jabs into jump
O.Dictator’s st.Fierce graphic glitch is corrected
The DC version feels more polished. You’ll know what I mean to those that play both.
In fact the Dreamcast is my favorite console system ever. CvS1/2, ST, 3rd Strike Offline edition, and Garou MotW all in JP versions on the Dreamcast.
