If anyone cares, I was able to enable the hitboxes simply by pressing the 1P start button which executes TRUSTsf2-hitboxes.lua.
I guess I don’t get notifications sent to me automatically anymore, for this thread with the new forums. Well, at least the forums load this time.
Yeah, it’s Start button to toggle hitbox display on/off. Press the 5 key on your keyboard (Lua hotkey 5) to toggle input display (lower left/right corners). It’s mentioned in the Getting Started guide, but surrounded by a mountain of other text so easily overlooked I guess? But these two features are very useful.
No problem. Thanks XSPR.
New mix up- scratch rough rugged and raw:
I was thinking about a theme for the Afrolegends vs. Damdai matches. Ignore actual video footage- tried to get TAP pause super out but forgot I had the button held down for the super, d’oh.
lol first blodd has been DRAWN
DJF wanted me to comment on damdai’s diss video directed at Afro Leg-Ends, but I think I’ll refrain.
lol indeed I did.
It’s no diss. You guys are warmongers. It applies to both of us!
Looks like the East Vs West rivalry is about to kick back up. This is going to get hype. Unless the Far East comes in and stomps on everyone like they did last year. Fuck those guys.
its a diss lol
It’s definitely a diss.
Ive never seen a bigger dis in my whole Mexican life
That diss video posted by damdai makes me feel bad for Afro Leg-Ends. Actually, no it doesn’t.
I wonder if legends afro will post a diss video in return to damdizzles diss video
Huge diss. Ask Sesho.
Looks like I kinda derailed my own thread here again- at first, I was going to post my song mix in last year’s thread about Damdai vs. Afrolegends, however, when I found that thread, I remembered all the focus on it being a money match and I didn’t really want to promote that part of it all. The rivalry/competitive healthy scene itself is enough for me. I had the idea for the mix as soon as Zass made the comment, at least with the “suit and tie” sample but that wasn’t enough to bother making it until I found the other samples to balance it out, since, after all, boxer is no gentleman, so I don’t want to go out of my way to make any kind of a potential rallying cry for boxer players. So hopefully the other samples mixed in get people to notice that, as good as AfroLegends is, he hasn’t been showing up for many tournaments ya know? Damdai’s the opposite, he’s traveling all around the world, France etc. to compete, he’s got his doorbell there, ya know, so he’s probably wondering, like I’m wondering, maybe like everyone’s wonderin: When ya gonna ring it? Anyway if this year’s big tournament is anywhere near as good as ToL was last year that’d be awesome. btw I saw a 30 min documentary explaining the original footage of Damdai’s linked video- it was pretty good actually, recommended. It’s not exactly the video I would have posted, but the documentary is more enlightening than the linked video’s edit if anyone’s interested.
Anyway, for years I’ve thought tournaments could use more DJ technology. Good commentating requires concise speech that doesn’t just tell you what buttons were pressed but describes the strategy of the action as it occurs and explains subtle positioning etc. So at times you want to say things relatively fast because a lot can happen in a few seconds, and the tension can keep on going after that. So either the commentator or a DJ can use equipment to play samples of common phrases at the touch of a button for increased efficiency. Or increased corniness, not quite sure which yet, but in any case, I’d be willing to risk it. Most of us in the fighting game world seem to think that shouting out recommended courses of action, however obvious to the player or his opponent, is somehow faster than the player moving his finger less than a centimeter to press a button, even though you have to account for the time it takes to form the words and get them out of your mouth in time, plus the speed of sound to travel to the player’s ear, and for him to comprehend what you said, filtering out all the other ambient noise or his own inconsiderate concentration on the game itself-- and THEN press the button. So basically now, you can commentate like that, but twice as fast so it’s like, double the benefit you’re offering him. Just like how you can give someone a copy of Fred Brooke’s Mythical Man-Month, but why not give him two copies that way he can read it twice as fast.
A DJ has strictly less knowledge and competence than a musician, and it would be the same in comparison to a good commentator. The less, the better. If commentators are not good enough, we need more and better commentators.
It’s definitely true that some commentators are better than others. Zass’s commentary from the tournament I sampled him was an example of very good commentary (not just the quote about boxer, but in general). He was able to concisely convey a lot about the subtle spacing and what was going on in terms of who had the advantage during the fast pace of a fighting game round. And often he’d be next to someone else who would often supply a very occasional “yeah” or “uh-huh” in agreement, merely providing harmony so it seems a lot less like Zass is just talking to himself and I’d say that was even better- because it lets Zass’ experience shine through his good commentary.
Zass’s, or anyone else’s, might want to play the piano or guitar while he’s on the mic too, but I don’t think that would be nearly as effective. But I’m pretty sure he or someone else can press a button. I’d say it’s similar to how some people using PowerPoint prefer to click through their own slides, but others prefer someone else to click through them as they speak. At best, having DJ equipment available to press a button to express some common phrase during the fast pace of the action is just an option available that could be used to achieve greater concision for a richer commentator experience.
