Nice, this may just make me start Captain A officially


#5

Thanks for the frame info gimpy. Am completely new to this 2dfighting game thing, but this gives me some stuff to work with. thanks again for doing the legwork.


#6

I was directed here from the main thread, but I am not quite sure what these figures mean. Is there anywhere that goes into an explanation of this data, specifically, the significance of the negative advantage numbers? Man, playing video games is getting to be just like work!


#7

frame advantage is when you can move vs when they can move - if it’s negative it means that they can move first. if they have a move that is fast enough to be lower than that number of frames then you are punishable by that character if you use that move and it doesn’t hit them


#8

That’s what I thought, but I wasn’t sure. That explains advantage on block. Some moves also show advantage on hit. If you scored a hit how do you end up with a negative advantage?


#9

low hitstun with massive recovery - if you don’t cancel it into something else - which you will.

so if you did a standing hard and didn’t do anything after you could theoretically be punished with chaotic flame.

not normally relevant because you’ll be continuing the combo into other moves.


#10

Are you planning on posting the frame data for Thor and Stark? It would be greatly appreciated if you do, I’m really curious about thor’s mostly though.


#11

i will update this later to be accurate to ultimate standards rather than vanilla
