The Skullgirls General FAQ


Maybe you’re using button shortcuts?


Just using the A button at character select :confused:


That’s strange. I’ll recommend to go and ask Mike in GD while he’s still there.


how is the dashing? is it 3p dash or stick dash
is there wavedashing
is there airdash cancels


2p dash and stick dash both work.
there is wave dashing, some wave dashes is better than others.
Not sure what you mean by airdash cancels.


can I cancel hits with an airdash?
can i cancel hits with a jump, then cancel the jump with an airdash?
can i cancel out of an airdash with an attack?


Filia and Peacock have combos that require you to airdash to continue, so yes to canceling attacks into air dashes and air dashes into attacks. Not sure about M. Fortune or Valentine but I don’t see why they couldn’t.
I know that at least Peacock’s air dash let’s her build up momentum, because if you attack RIGHT after air dashing she just stays in place.
I don’t think you can jump cancel anything other than launchers (not sure if you can do it on block but you can do it on hit, even if it hits and assist and the point character blocks…), I would try it in training mode but I am too lazy to use both controllers.
There is airdash buffering so if you press up+2p the air dash comes out the first possible frame.


I’ll answer the first two, yes.

The third, I believe Filia’s air roundhouse puts her out of airdash state, but I don’t know for sure.


Where’s the list of command inputs? I can’t find it on the pause menu or anywhere in this game (except looking it up on this forums website).


There isn’t one in game, you have to get it online.


So, just recently learned that a lot of Filia combos that people are finding only work in training mode because you can create “fake” combos because of the techability of her hard knockdown from j.HK (doesn’t actually work on a real, living opponent, because they’ll just tech). Is there any way for us to be sure of when an OTG can actually work in a real match without having to call a friend over just to hold a stick in a direction for us to do training mode? Some kind of visual indicator or something?


isn;t the techable OTG shown with a flash of blue on the ground.

non-techable will be red

so if you see red, it a proper combo, if you see blue its not.

please somone correct me if this is wrong.


on a website or a transferable patch?


next question then, is how do you end up with red or blue tech?


first otg is always untechable (red)

otg used in a loop turns the indicator blue.

watch the first attack ultrachen archive, mike talks about it and demonstrates it.

this is all fuzzy in my memory but i would love if someone can confirm my claims.


Yeah, I tried to gauge the red/blue hitspark thing and based on what I remembered from playing against my friends, that seems to be the case. That needs to go in an FAQ or something.


So quick question, I’m playing the demo and sometimes the character I’m playing as will dissapear for a millisecond and be replaced by a bunch of green hit boxes. Is anyone else seeing this?


How do you unlock Valentine and Double story mode?
How do you unlock all the colors?


Beat story with the intial 6

Color 7: Beat story mode with the character
Color 8: Beat Arcade with that character on the team (example: team of 3 will unlock 8 for all 3)
Color 9: 25 wins with that character (character that strikes killing blow if on a team) Versus Only
Color 10: shrug


cool so basically if you dont have anyone to play you can just setup versus mode on a second controller against a team of one and beat them 25 times to get color 9… not so bad just use versus mode as training.

a quick question:

how long is the input buffer in this game? t seems rather small compared t streetfighter where i think its around fifteen frames give or take a few… both the time needed to do specials seems smaller and the buffer after the motion is completed seems to have a small window, it makes combos harder not that im complaining, i like it. i’d just like to know what the actual buffer is and whether it changes from move to move or if its static across the board.
