The SF2 Hyper Fighting Thread


#2039

@Hanzo_Hasashi yes we had a couple very good Kabal, Nightwolf, H Smoke, Jax, Scorpion, Sub Zero players but they moved the umk3 on the left was prob CVS2. We haven’t recorded for a while though I’ll try to put something up soon


#2040

Thx my friend! You owe me the video tour! haha (JK)

On other news, I had a pair of sets vs a local good player, here they are. Sorry for the shakiness and the camera angle!

Edit: all vids up!


#2041

So cool seeing all the different CPS1 SF2 scenes still hanging in there around the world. The Caribbean, South America, New Zealand and China all still have active scenes!
Thanks for posting the vids guys. Unfortunately Im in the UK so very far from all of you.

EDIT:
Btw guys, now that u can finally be in MULTIPLE rooms on fightcade2, I think it will be allot easier to find games on there. Open beta is days away afaik.


#2042

Not days away. It’s open now.

Open to all who have made Fightcade accounts in 2014 or 2015.


#2043

I have an old account and downloaded the beta, but it’s just an emulator. There’s no client.


#2044

A couple matches with an old top player visiting from the UK he’s rusty as he’ll tho


#2045

That’s strange. Should be a new client integrated with Discord along with the emulator. Might need new ROMs or transfer your old ones over.

Which site did you go to?


#2046

Awesome stuff! Haha Dpugla failing 2 critical SRKs and hs expression haha that happens.

Some more matches from Bogota, this time, there were 7 players. Sadly I could not record them all. I was Honda, Guile and Vega.

HF was SUPER HYPE last night!

I got the client working but it doesn’t seem to like any of my roms from the old fightcade.


#2048

Quite a lot of games have updated ROMs. You’ll need to download new ones. It should tell you which version you’ll need to download. Google up those versions, find (legally) sourced ROMs with the same versions in their titles, and away you go.


#2049

A some more matches from Bogotá


#2050

watson…can u tell me if back in your day there were any good honda players and if yes what was their strategies vs shotos and other characters in the game…thx


#2051

El trouble whats your nick name on Fightcade? mines is MR.mention…hope to play u in Hf bro…in either fightcade 1 or 2


#2052

Only good Honda players I’ve heard about in hearsay was Tomo Ohira and Kuroppi. Tomo Ohira is of course a legend, but he also played a lot of Honda in the WW/CE days according to the guys who played with him at Super Arcade back in the early 90s.

Kuroppi is still active. Not so much in terms of being a competitive player, but he still helps organize a lot of ST tournaments as well as occasionally playing in them despite his abundant lack of practice.

I’m eltrouble on Fightcade, but I never play on there.


#2053

So what’s the best way to play Hyper Fighting online currently?


#2054

Fightcade 2 if you have access to it


#2055

Sad guys, we will need a new place to talk:


#2056

I guess it’s time to follow the trend and take it to social media, discord, and reddit like everyone else.


#2057

There’s gonna retro gaming festival at the Pomona Fairplex (California) next weekend on Jan 20-21. There will be a 3s tourney and a HF tourney there with prizes. For more info on the event go to :
