The Official I am a newb thread!


#1

I see that alot of people are posing in seperate threads about them being scrubs and such. So i decided to make a thread deticated to newbs or srk. Post your problems here and someone will post back in order to help you out.

Street Fighter 3 is an awesome game, luckily I have 3 other friends who agree. I do not have delusions of being in tourneys which don’t exist in my area, and getting to be better/as good as [insert player]. I also understand that there isn’t a magical sentence someone can say to me that will make me completely understand the game and be able to beat everybody etc.

Blah blah blah noob threads are silly.


#3

There is one word that could. “Believe”~


#4

Dediacation.

I have a question, is it a given to use the “Digital pad” when playing the game on an Xbox? (I’m not sure the word for it, but I hope you understand digital pad) - I usually accidently jump and shit when using the analog stick, however I feel it’s easier to use it for nailing supercombos. Yesterday I asked in the SRK IRC channel about it and 3 people instantly said “Use the digital pad” - So the basic question is, are there different opinions on this, or is playing with the digital pad a given?

Thank you for replies.

hehe D-pad doesn’t stand for “digital pad”, it stands for Directional Pad. And if you really want to use an analog stick, buy a joystick, if you really want to get better the investment is worth it.


#10

Well, having played this game for ~3 days, buying a joystick feels a bit to serious. However, if I do fall in love with the game totally I’ll probably buy a joystick, but that’s not all to relevant right now.


#11

D-Pad is way better for my execution… SRK’s come out easier, and I don’t accidentally jump as much either. But, I play on PS2, and not X-Box, so I don’t have much experience w/ Controller S.

Super’s come with time on D-pad’s; it’s definately doable.


#12

Alright, thank you for the answer. Since everyone is saying D-Pad I’ll just stay in trainingmode to keep practising those supers, EX’s etc. (Just learned how to do EX’s! :rofl: )

And since this is the official newbie thread, I’ll ask this question here aswell; " Learn s.mp xx mk/lk ducking xx super " - I read this like standing middlepunch, middle kick/low kick (You choose), duck, super. - What I’m wondering is what does xx mean?

Answers would be appriciated ~


#13

“xx” means super cancel. I’m not a Dudley player, so I’m not sure if it’s actually a super cancel, but the combo goes “standing medium punch, linked into the light/medium kick version of Ducking, super cancelled into super.”


#14

Alright, thanks … I think I’ll wait a bit trying to learn those kind of moves as I’m not very good at doing my specials yet.


#15

I’ve always seen xx stand for ‘cancel’ super or otherwise. Like c.MKxxQFC+P


#16

I think ‘x’ is cancel and ‘xx’ is super cancel, while the lack of any signifier is link/reset.


#17

No, it’s really just a matter of how people are used to writing it. I use xx for cancels, comma for link, and just note resets as such because they’re not completely guaranteed anyway. I personally don’t make any distinction between a cancel and a super cancel as far as notation goes, because you’re still cancelling one move into another.

Well I know that I am a complete scrub with 3s… considering I played it for the FIRST TIME yesterday. I now seriously regret getting out of fighting games back in the day. I have played SC2-3 and Tekken 3-4-5… but almost nothing 2D for the better part of 4 years.

I was into FPS’s… but just recently… I heard the siren song of fighting games once again.

And this time… I am not messing around. I have gone all out, and ordered a stick from finkle. I Bought 2 games (KOF 2k2/2k3 and SF:Anniversary for PS2).

So really, I am at the ground level and am learning to parry, even though it is a BITCH to do consistently with the PS2 D-pad.

The problem is… I was never too good with an arcade stick… but then again… I never OWNED one. So hopefully it will not be a waste of money dropping the cash on a high-quality stick.
