I see a lot of confusion in combo threads and character discussion forums about the number pad notation for directional inputs, so I wanted to post up to clear this up for you guys. I’ve listed the different ways of writing out inputs so you can use this for a reference if there is ever any confusion.
**Street Fighter Notations **
**Numper Pad Notations **
So basically, you want to look at the number pad as a joystick. You are always assuming the player is facing to the right. Since the numbers are arranged in all 8 directions, with 5 being at neutral, if you ever need a reference just look down at your keyboard.
Hope that helps you guys!
