USF4 Bugs and Improper set data thread *Revised due to text limits*


#1

Threads will be merged when possible. Going to separate out the stuff better using all the posts available, makes it easier to edit for me as well as prevents hitting text cap.

I’m going to compile a list of bugs and improper set character data and send it off to Capcom. They are aware of the list I posted before of unlisted changes, I figured I should compile a complete list of issues.

Special thanks:
@Dantarion‌ @Razor5070 @error1 @Anotak and others (ono tool)
@street11 @malvadisco @cerberusfx @shinebox @pepopulo @veserius @doopliss @street11 @haztlan @thefreshprince and more (testing some stuff + finding some stuff + corrections on some of my findings)
@jchensor @m16ghost @shodan for the SRK wiki and helping me figure out some things if I had a question.
And the rest of the SRK.com community for helping out whenever possible, if I didn’t mention you by name I’m sorry. However your contributions are extremely helpful and I thank you for it!
@insanerikk for compiling the pass through bug thread.

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS EFFORT
Anything you believe is a bug please include the following:
What the bug is.
The precise scenario where this bug occurs and how to replicate it. (Video evidence a plus!)
Known instances of this bug (if it occurs under other circumstances.

Types of issues to include:
Reeling Animations that cause attacks to whiff ONLY IF IT’S A MAJOR ISSUE ON A SPECIFIC CHARACTER (SUCH AS ELENA’S) AGAINST MULTIPLE CHARACTERS. DON’T INCLUDE VERY SPECIFIC COMBOS FOR 1 CHARACTER WHIFFING ON MULTIPLE CHARACTERS DO include instances where a move was buffed to perform a specific function but still fails consistently.
Trades resulting in a counterhit (Such as Abel’s farHK, Cody’s Far LP, or Guy’s farHK. Attacks where the move has already become active but if you hit the attacking character it still grants a counterhit.
Pass through glitches where a character can dash through another character due to reeling animations
Improperly set counterhit damage (where an attack does less than normal Counterhit damage. Such as Cody’s close HK or Fei’s crMP)
Any major inconsistencies (Such as Dan’s MP Gohadoken not breaking counters, Hakan’s chained crLK having different frame data than not chained, Gen’s U2 jump canceled version being entirely different than normal U2. Cody’s Level 2/3 HP Badstone frame data. Blanka’s chip damage on electricity [may be intentional, will mention it though])

Things NOT to include
Buff requests to things working as intended or not working how you WANT them to (Such as Blanka’s rainbow ball not breaking armor, Rose’s soul spiral having no throw invincibility, ect) if it’s a buff that is something where it seems like the move is not following the standard rules (such as an attack having strange chip instead of the standard 25%, or doing something weird vs crouching opponents like Makoto’s sHP in AE2012, that is worth mentioning.)
“I feel” type reports (where you THINK something is different but you haven’t actively done several tests and can’t provide exact information)


Massive non-gameplay issue
There is a slowdown + system lock up issue affecting consoles post 1.04 patch. The game will slowdown and the audio will become extremely loud and garbled. Current cause is unknown.

System Wide
Almost every character does not have a hurtbox designated during recovery frames of their attacks. However Hugo, Poison, Rolento and Elena do for most of their attacks. Should be system wide.
Heavy attacks that connect on the upper body of a standing or crouching opponents often cause an extreme reel back animation that can cause followup attacks to whiff or be blockable in situations they should not.
EX Focus and EX Red Focus will build meter on block.
Some combos only work when the attacker is facing to the right or only when facing to the left. Player 1 may be able to do a combo player 2 cannot do.
Many characters light attacks cause proximity blocking until the move has fully recovered, but it’s not universal.
Damage values are inconsistent on counterhit or chip. Some attacks round chip damage / counterhit damage UP to the nearest whole, while other attacks round down. (Ken’s fireball (70 dmg) rounds up to 18chip and 88 damage on counterhit, while his HP SRK 1st hit is rounded down to 17chip but rounds up to 88 counterhit damage)
Proximity / state change option select still exists (May be intentional)
Many attacks that have a lock-in type of animation will trade and cause no damage to the opponent. (Such as Abel’s Falling Sky or Hugo’s Back Breaker) [May be Intentional]
Unblockables still exist and new ones are being found for DWU
Hurtboxes during knockdown animations cause juggle heights to vary WIDELY on some characters. Blanka juggles lower, while Deejay and Balrog fly up much higher. It also affects some characters timing for throws resulting in different landing timing for things like Blanka’s back throw when used on specific characters.
Reeling animations can vary based on where on the opponent you hit them when used as the first attack. This is especially noticeable with jump ins but affects grounded attacks as well. This can result in some combos not working every time even when hit under identical circumstances.
When crossing over or under an opponent without a jump the the turn around animation will occasionally cause inputs to be lost and the turn around animation will run slowly and cannot be interrupted with another command. This is most apparent with things like Blanka’s surprise forward.
Many characters can perform pass through glitches where they switch sides with an opponent mid combo due to a reeling animation. Here is a list of currently known ones ( Credit @InsaneRikk‌ for compiling these)

Edition Select
USF4 characters cannot perform DWU if hit with a hard knockdown by a character who is not from USF4. Seems counter intuitive. New to USF4
SF4 Seth’s Health and Stun are not the proper SF4 Vanilla values. His Health is 800 and stun is 900 when it should be 750/750. New to USF4 [Fixed in Oct 15th 2014 update]

Misc
Setting Music Volume to zero does not mute the volume. [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]
Oversight and/or Bug: It is not possible set a button to “empty” when using the button config from character select screen. New to USF4
One of the new titles has a typo “Flase Prophet” should be “False Prophet” New to USF4

Stage Specific
Left corner and right corners of stages do not match in properties. Moves crossups on one side do not crossup on the other. May be related to the issue with how some combos fail when facing left or facing right side of the screen.
Many stages, especially the new stages when playing on PS3, cause lots of frame dropping and visual slowdown. This also applies to Xbox360 but less often.
Playing Evil Ryu on Blast Furnace can cause graphical hiccups and dropped frames. New to USF4

Online
Many players getting “Waiting for player” messages mid match with high frequency causing the game to be nearly unplayable. New to USF4

Training room
(Oversight rather than bug) There is no options regarding DWU for the dummy. New to USF4 [Fixed in Oct 15th 2014 update]
Reloading a save state does not save the amount of charge a character has or will release the attack immediately in the case of moves such as Balrog’s TAP. New to USF4
Reloading a save state will occasionally cause the dummy to continue the last input command from before the reload. New to USF4

Abel
Normals
Far HK can trade and still result in a counterhit. 1st active frame still considered in a counterhit state. New to USF4 [Fixed in Oct 15th 2014 update]
Far LP and chained far LP have different hitboxes
crouching MK only gets +2F on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids (May be intentional)
Specials
Inputting a Super at any point during Marseilles Roll will cause him to perform a super as soon as the roll recovers (May be intentional)
On Block All Change of Directions (except for the 2nd Mid) build and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%

Adon
Normals
close MK can trade and still result in a counterhit. first 2 active frames still considered in a counterhit state.[Fixed in Dec 13th 2014 update]
close MK only gets +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids. (May be intentional as closeMK gets above average hitstun on a normal hit)
close HK can be stuffed during startup and not result in a counterhit. last startup frame not considered in a counterhit state.
close MP only gets +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids. (May be intentional as close MP has A LOT more hitstun than most mids or even most heavies.)
F+MP hurtbox frames are 1F longer than the active frames.
Specials
All Air Jaguar Kicks can trade and still result in a counterhit. 1st active frame still considered in a counterhit state.
Super/Ultras
Thousand Jaguar Super does 50% chip during parts of the attack instead of 25%

Akuma
Normals
Many opponents only need to block 1hit of far HK when crouching. (May be intentional)
F+MP only gets +2F on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids (may be intentional)
Specials
MP SRK regularly will get 1 hit and then the 2nd hit misses resulting the attack leaving the opponent grounded while Akuma finishes the attack.
EX Tatsumaki will occasionally only get 2-4hits and throw the opponent out of the combo even on grounded opponents.
On Block MK and HK Tatsumaki all hits after the first one build and grant opponent 80% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
On Block All Air Tatsus build and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
On Block MP/HP/EX SRK build and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain for first hit instead of 50%. Remaining hits grants opponent 100% meter instead of 50%
On Block Demon Flip Palm and Demon Flip Dive Kick build and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%

Balrog
System Mechanics
Head pushbox gets in the way during standing and forward walking causing inconsistencies in distance for many character’s attacks as well as his own.
Normals
Balrog does not have hurtboxes designated during the startup (or some active) frames on any close standing normals. All hurtboxes are entirely based on model and animation.
Far LP when chained into has a different hitbox than when not chain canceled.
Specials
On Block All Dash Upper, Dash Smash, Dash Swing Blow, and Dash Low (include EX versions) all build and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
On Block All Dash Straights (including EX Versions) build and grant opponent only 33% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
Super/Ultra
Super and U1 grant opponent only 25% meter on block instead of 50%

Blanka
System Mechanics
Crouching hurtbox causes many inconsistencies and combos uncomboing for multiple characters. Attacks will whiff on a crouching blanka left in neutral but hit a crouch blocking Blanka.
Forward throw causes players to sink into the ground slightly during bite animation making feet clip through floor (Minor graphical issue)
Normals
crMK does not gain additional frame advantage on counterhit New to USF4 [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]
crMK hitstop (aka impact freeze) is different for hitting a standing opponent vs a crouching opponent. This makes cancel timing as well as hit confirming more difficult to do consistently. New to USF4 [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]
close standing MK grants opponent a counterhit when hit during active frames[Fixed in Dec 13th 2014 update]
Blanka does not have a hurtboxes designated for the startup frames of any of his close normal attacks, all are based entirely on model and animation.
Angled Jump HP does not have a hurtbox designated at all for the move, it is entirely based on model animation (may be intentional)
Specials
Canceling Surprise Forward (F+PPP) into a reversal OK move will come out 2F slower after the move has already recovered if the new move was input during the surprise forward. The cancel occurs on 24F but the dash recovers on 22F
Electricity does far below normal chip damage (May be intentional)
When performing extended EX electricity the hitbox is a completely different than regular EX Electricity (May be intentional)
Extended Electricity does less damage and stun than normal electricity. (As this is not how Gen, Chun Li, or E. Honda’s rapid button input type moves work I’m not sure if this is intended or an oversight.)
HK Vertical Roll does not properly use it’s landing recovery script due to a miss set “flow table” setting. The landing is the normal landing script from an air attack instead of “Vertical_HG” which is a 10F script that should run when Blanka touches the ground. However the period of time it checks for landing only lasts 1F and it’s not anywhere close to the frame that Blanka actually touches the ground.
Super/Ultra
If held in a Spin state a cross up Super or Ultra 1 can sometimes uncombo if near the corner as it counts Blanka as having “hit” the wall of the stage and ends the move.
The initial low hit of Ultra 1 does no damage, because of this the move gains no bonus damage on counterhit if the low part is a counterhit. (may be intentional)
If U1 misses the 2nd hit or is held in a spin state for the 3rd hit then the ultra will do 5-10 more damage. Damage can vary between 490 to 500 (may be intentional)

C. Viper
System Mechanics
Back throw builds 60 meter on hit instead of the near universal standard 40 (May be intentional)
Normals
It is possible for the opponent’s with lower profile dashes to switch sides with Viper if they dash towards her during the startup of close LK
crLP has an incorrectly set head hurtbox size. Should be 0.2x0.2 but instead is defaulted to 0.0x0.0 meaning based on model. (May be intentional)
crMK will not buffer a special move or super combo input during the first 5F of start up.
Specials
MP Thunder Knuckle still does 200stun when hitting a crouching or airborne opponent despite notes specifically stating it had stun reduced to 150. [May be intentional?]
On Block, All of Viper’s special attacks (except for HP Thunder Knuckle and ground burn kicks) build and grant opponent 66% meter of the “on hit” meter gain instead of the standard 50% (May be intentional)
On block, Ground non-ex version burn kicks builds and grant opponent 33% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of the standard 50%
On block, The last hit of ground version EX Burn kick grants the opponent 33% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of the standard 50%
EX Thunder Knuckle can only be counterhit for 14F of it’s 26F startup frames.
Air LK Burn Kick hurtbox lasts 1F longer than hitbox
Air HK Burn Kick hurtbox lasts 1f LESS time than the hitbox
Air EX Burn Kick hurtbox is only designated for the last hit, and lasts 1F longer than final hitbox. (May be intentional)
Air EX Burn Kick is in a counterhit state for 1-20F even though the attack becomes active on 6F
Ground EX Burn Kick in a counter hit state for 1-24F even though the attack becomes active on 9F
Ground EX Burn Kick hurtbox is only designated for final hit and lasts 1F longer than final hitbox (May be intentional)
Last active frame of MP Thunder Knuckle cannot be super/ex focus/red focus canceled
Last active frame of LP Thunder Knuckle cannot be super/ex focus/red focus canceled
Super/Ultra
Super Combo has massively reduced hitstun when connecting with a crouching opponent rather than standing.
Landing Ultra 1 under specific circumstances can result in graphical errors where special effects disappear for all characters. New to USF4

Cammy
System Mechanics
Back dash recovery is 1F longer than the reversal cancel window. Backdash is 22F but can cancel into reversal OK moves on 21F
Back dash only has 6F of invincibility instead of the standard 8F
Normals
ALL LP normals cancel window for chaining is longer than the recovery for the attack itself. (Hitting LP several frames after the attack has already recovered can still result in a chain combo. This makes it hard to link lights together or plink to MP or MK attacks)
Chained versions of crLP have a smaller hitbox than normal versions of crLP
Chained crLK startup is 1F faster than normal crLK (chained version did not receive the nerf normal crLK did so chained is still 3F startup)
Far HP can trade and still result in a counterhit. 1st active frame still considered in a counterhit state.
close sLK can only be chained out of on hit/block. (standard for chainable lights is to allow it on whiff as well.)
Specials
Cannon Spike remains active even once the move has begun to fall after reaching max height (may be intentional)
Cannon Strike retains height restriction when performing it from a Hooligan Combination. This causes the move to have an extraordinarily small cancel window on some versions of Hooligan (May be intentional) New to USF4
Supers/Ultras
Ultra 2 is negative when used successfully. It is not punishable (AFAIK) but it still leaves Cammy at a disadvantage.

Chun Li
System Mechanics
Techable window for Forward Throw is 1F longer than normal [Fixed in Oct 15th 2014 update]
Some reeling animations while crouching cause followups to whiff due to low profiling.
Normals
There is no “chained” version of close LP or close LK. Chained close LP and close LK retains all of the same properties as normal close LP/LK allowing for special/super canceling when chained into.
Close LP, close MP, close LK, and close MK don’t have hurtboxes designated during startup frames. Hurtboxes are instead based entirely on character model + animation.
At some distances Chun Li’s far HP can pass through an opponent without hitting them.
Far HK hurtbox is extended 1F before the move becomes active. In addition the last frame of startup does not have a counterhit state. You can stuff the attack during startup without gaining counterhit bonus. (I’m guessing the move was supposed to startup 1F faster than it does.)
B+MKxxMK does not have a counter hit state during startup. Neither does the Tensho followup (D->UP+MK)
Tensho causes a lower juggle on counterhit.
Specials
When canceling into HK SBK from a close HP the move has different recovery than when performed at any other time. This results in the move having different frame advantage. New to USF4
LK SBK will whiff many hits on most characters due to reeling when canceled into from crHP or crMK, often including the final hit that causes knockdown.
MP Kikoken cannot be counterhit during the last 2F of it’s startup. Attack can be stuffed during startup without gaining counterhit status.
All non-ex SBKs cause more pushback and give less frame advantage on counterhit.
Super/Ultra
First 19hits of UC2 only do 20% chip instead of 25%. New to USF4

Cody
System Mechanics
Level 3 Focus attack hurtbox during active frames is positioned different than level 1 or 2.
Backdash recovery is 3F longer than the reversal cancel window. Backdash is 26F but can cancel into reversal OK moves on 23F
Walking backwards the hurtbox is only designated for the first 36F of a 150F animation.
Normals
Far LP can trade and result in a counterhit. 1st active frame still considered in a counterhit state
close HK counter hit damage is lower than it should be (110 damage base but only does 125damage on counterhit. Should be 138)
crouching MK has empty physics settings (May be intentional)
crouching MK only grants +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard 3F for mids/heavies (may be intentional)
crouching knife attacks do not count as being crouching.
Angled Jump MP builds 60 meter on hit and 30 meter on block instead of the standard 40/20 for a mid (may be intentional)
chain canceled sLP with knife has a different hitbox than regular sLP with knife, also does not cause proximity blocking.
Chained sLP/crLP with knife did not get the juggle potential increase that regular sLP/crLP with knife did. New to USF4
close sMP with knife 2nd hit did not get juggle potential increase that far sMP with knife did. New to USF4
F+HP only grants +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit for 2nd hit instead of the standard +3F for heavies. (May be intentional)
F+MP only grants +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of standard +3F for mids. (May be intentional)
Far MK while holding the knife has a different size hurtbox and hitbox than far MK without the knife.
Knife attacks cause less than normal chip damage (May be intentional)
sMP with Knife only grants +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids. (May be intentional)
Specials
On Block LP Criminal Upper first hit builds 80% of the “on hit” meter gain for Cody and grants 100% of the “on hit” meter gain to opponent.
On Block MP Criminal Upper first hit builds 40% meter for Cody. Tornado portion builds 80% of the “on hit” meter gain for Cody and grants 100% of the “on hit” meter gain value to opponent.
On Block HP Criminal Upper builds and grants opponent 100% of the “on hit” meter gain value.
Meter gain for tornado portion of HP Criminal Upper is significantly lower than meter for LP/MP/EX (may be intentional)
Badspray causes 13x2 chip stun damage when blocked (may be intentional)
Level 2 and Level 3 HP Badstone have different frame data than Level 1 and level 4
Badstone/knife throw/fake badstone/fake knife throw charging and startup do not cause proximity blocking.
Badstone does not have a counterhit flag for the last 7F before it becomes active. (may be intentional)
Zonk knuckle uses up all juggle potential preventing combos after zonk - FADC but only if Zonk is the first attack to cause a knockdown. HK Ruffian - FADC - Zonk allows combos (may be intentional)
LK/MK/EX Ruffian Kicks physics and hurtbox data do not match up with the active frame settings. Active frames run out sooner than they should. (May be intentional)
EX Ruffian Kick has projectile invincibility during part of the recovery rather than part of the startup (May be intentional or related to the active frames running out before hurtbox and physics do)
LK Ruffian Kick is not a hard knockdown when hitting an airborne opponent New to USF4 [Fixed in Oct 15th 2014 update]
Badspray from face up knockdown is 20F longer recovery than from face down knockdown resulting it being far more punishable.
Knife pickup can only be canceled into specific versions of moves. You can cancel it into knife throw, criminal upper, EX FADC, super combos and chainable light attacks but not Zonk or Ruffian Kick or non-chained normals (May be intentional)
Supers/Ultras
Super combos still regularly drop people mid combo (LK Super will always drop Honda after the 3rd hit for example.)
Ultra 2 on air hit will leave Cody punishable after the dust portion juggles on an airborne opponent.
Ultra 2 dust can connect with a grounded opponent (even one who has not extended their hurtbox whatsoever) and the first wrench attack can either whiff or be blocked.
Ultra 2 dust portion does not break counters (may be intentional)

Dan
System Mechanics
Hurtbox position on a max charged Focus attack is different for a max charged EX Focus attack.
Normals
None of Dan’s close standing normals have hurtboxes designated at any point during the attack. They are all entirely based on model + animation.
Far MP hurtbox is extended 1F before the attack becomes active.
crouching HP hurtbox is extended 1F before the attack becomes active
Specials
MP Gohadoken will not break counters after the first 2F active
Active frames on Gohadoken disappear long before the fireball graphics ends. (May be intentional)
MP/HP Gohadoken cause different chip damage than LP Gohadoken despite all causing the same base damage.
LK Danku can trade and result in a counterhit. 1st active frame still considered in a counterhit state
EX Danku can trade and result in a counterhit. first 2F active frames still considered in a counterhit state
On Block First hit of MK and HK Danku build and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain value instead of 50%
On Block Last hit of MK and HK Danku build and grant opponent 100% of the “on hit” meter gain value instead of 50%
On Block All Air Dankus build and grant 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain value instead of 50%
Super/Ultra
If the final hit of Dan’s Super combo connects as a counterhit the juggle height is SIGNIFICANTLY lower.
Super combo grants only 25% meter on block.
Dan’s move list order is setup incorrectly allowing for Focus cancel into super taunt.
Ultra 2 invincibility does not last until the move becomes active. In addition the fireball itself will not come out if Dan gets hit during the startup. This is counter to every other fireball ultra in the game. This means Dan’s U2 can actually get stuffed during startup. (May be intentional.)


Ultra Street Fighter 4 General
#2

Decapre
System Mechanics
Back dash recovery is 1F longer than the reversal cancel window. Backdash is 22F but can cancel into reversal OK moves on 21F
Back dash only has 6F of invincibility instead of the standard 8F
Hurtbox issues can cause many attacks to whiff during reeling animations or juggles.
Using air throw on an opponent in a crumple state will result in using the “combo” version of air throw which only does 130 damage instead of the normal 150 damage version.
All of Decapre’s jump cancels have no pre jump duration/animation. Normally all jump cancels run through a pre jump animation even if that jump cancel cannot be prejump canceled (like Makoto’s Fukiage). All of her jump cancels use the “EXBreak_Jump” script.
Red focus hurtbox is different size than normal focus attack hurtbox during active frames [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]

crouching HP can whiff on some crouching characters despite being a “force standing” type attack.
crouching HP hurtbox remains extended for 2F after the active frames end.
crouching LK leg hurtbox is extended 1F before the move becomes active.
chaining crLK into itself is not a true block string.
angled jump HP hurtbox is extended 2F before the move becomes active.
Target combo 2 hurtbox remains extended for 5F after the active frames end.
chained closeLK can only be canceled into another chain light on hit/block not on whiff.
close HP does not have a hurtbox designated for the 2nd hit of the attack, it based entirely on model + animation during those frames.
DF+MK does not have a hurtbox designated for startup frames. It is based entirely on model + animation during those frames.
DF+MK causes 1F more hitstop/impact freeze to Decapre than it does the opponent. Usually hitstop is equal or greater for the opponent than it is for the attacker so I’m not sure this is intentional.
DF+MK Hurtbox on leg does not properly follow Decapre’s leg during active frames 2 and 3.
If connected as a counterhit on the first active frame DF+MK only gains +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids. (may be intentional)
The 2nd active frame of DF+MK has 1F less hitstun than the first active frame of DF+MK.
The 2nd active frame of DF+MK does not gain any additional frame advantage on counterhit.
The 2nd active frame of DF+MK has 1F less blockstun than the first active frame of DF+MK

Rapid Daggers do not have hurtboxes designated at any point during the move. All hurtboxes are based entirely on model + animation.
Scramble does not have a counterhit state during startup frames (may be intentional)
L/M/H Scramble does not have a hurtbox designated during startup frames, it is entirely based on model + animation.
L+M EX Scramble will use the “SCRAMBLE_L_END_B_PB” script during the 13-15F period resulting in the Light version of the EX Scramble followup coming out instead of the EX Scramble. The correct script run when into range on those frames should be “SCRAMBLE_L_EX_END” [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]
Scramble followups cannot be performed with negative edge (may be intentional)
All versions of Break and Razor’s Edge Slicer do not have hurtboxes designated at all. They are entirely based on model + animation.
Sting causes 2F less hitstop/impact freeze when hitting or blocked after the first 2F active frames. This changes how much time you have to charge for some combos (May be intentional)
MP Sting does 27% chip on block instead of 25%
EX Razor’s Edge Slicer builds meter on hit/block for Decapre.
Cannon Strike has 1F more hitstop/impact freeze for Decapre than it does the opponent. Normally opponent is equal or higher than the attacker. (May be intentional)

Dee Jay
Normals
Far HP does not properly launch on counterhit if it connects on the 1st active frame of far HP.
close HP whiffs on many crouching characters despite being an attack designed to force standing.
crLK hurtbox becomes extended 1F before active and remains extended 1F after active frames end.
close LP, closeLK, and crouching LK have push boxes enabled on the regular versions that aren’t on their chained versions.
ALL of Deejay’s mids and heavies only gains +2F frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids and heavies (may be intentional)
Specials
Many of Deejays attacks set the juggle count to 99 if used as the first move in a knockdown but not if juggled into. Seems intentional but strange so I’m not sure.
MK Jack Knife 1st hit does not do proper counterhit damage 70 damage on normal hit but only 63 on counterhit. [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]

LP Machine Gun blow has an infinite on Guile/Balrog(and possibly others)
The first 2hits of MGB can push the opponent too far for the remaining hits to connect if used from a distance. (May be intentional)
Cross Counter is not broken by the armor break properties of reversal strike attacks unless the move is a natural armor breaker.
Ducking Straight and Ducking Upper (Including EX Versions) do not have a counterhit state during their start up frames.
All MGBs on block build and grant opponent 80% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
The first hit 3 hits of EX Short Swing Blow causes 1F more hit stun on standing than on crouching. This same additional frame advantage difference is not applied to Counterhit vs standing so I suspect it was unintentional.
The first hit of LP Thunderbolt does 50% chip damage instead of 25%. The 2nd hit of LP Thunderbolt does 33% chip instead of 25% (May be intentional)

E. Honda
System Mechanics
Forward dash recovery is 1F longer than the reversal cancel window. Dash is 19F but can cancel into reversal OK moves on 18F
Canceling a backdash into a reversal OK move will come out 2F slower, after the backdash has already recovered. The cancel occurs on 29F but the backdash recovers on 27F
Crouching hurtbox causes many inconsistencies and combos uncomboing for multiple characters. Attacks will whiff on a crouching E. Honda left in neutral but hit a crouch blocking E. Honda.

Elena
System Mechanics
Forward Jump is not flagged as “airborne” though it has no effect on gameplay due to script headers.
Crouching hurtbox results in many attacks whiffing that normally would not whiff on any crouching opponent. Very inconsistent combos against her for multiple characters. Some attacks will whiff on crouching Elena in neutral but hit crouching elena who is holding block.Adjusted in Dec 13th 2014 update
Standing hurtbox is inconsistent in neutral and during reeling.
All of Elena’s Focus attacks have no counterhit state for 2F before active frames start.
All of Elena’s “Level 2” focus attacks have a different startup than level 1. (May be intentional)
Move list priority is incorrectly set. Elena’s super and ultras are ranked as higher than appeal or focus. This allows for canceling focus attack into ultra / super by utilizing an armor absorb cancel.
Throw whiff has no hurtbox on head but pushbox on head can prevent some attacks from connecting with her hurtbox.
During a forward dash her head pushbox prevents some opponents throws from reaching her.
Normals
Against most characters target combo 2 is unable to be used as Elena will land before the TC initiates.
B+HK does not gain any additional frame advantage on counterhit. [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]
B+HK causes more hitstop/impact freeze for Elena than it does the opponent. (Normally opponent has equal or greater impact freeze than the attacker) (may be intentional)
sHP will not buffer specials/super input during the first 4F of startup.
You can buffer sHP into target combo 3 for 3F before the move becomes active (normally you can only input a target combo during the active frames).
sHK has empty physics settings. (this also applies to target combo version) (may be intentional)
sHK hurtbox remains extended for 1F after the active frames end. (this also applies to target combo version)
crLP can only turn for 1F of it’s startup (standard is to allow turning around for 2F of the startup of light attacks.)
Angled Jump HK is in a counterhit state during it’s first active frame. The attack can trade and still result in a counterhit.[Fixed in Dec 13th 2014 update]

The hurtboxs on DF+HK slide grow taller on each successive frame for active frames 1-4F (each frame taller than the previous) before suddenly dropping down by more than half their size for the remaining active frames. (May be intentional)
standing LK causes an extraordinarily low amount of hit and blockstun. (may be intentional)
standing MK causes more pushback on hit than on block. (may be intentional.)
crouching HP causes more pushback on hit than on block. (may be intentional)
crouching LK causes an extraordinarily low amount of hit and blockstun. (may be intentional)
F+MK only gets +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids.
Specials
Most multi hit specials are inconsistent on a large majority of the cast resulting in mid move drop outs.
Reeling animations, especially vs crouching opponents, can cause the 2nd hit of scratch wheel to whiff consistently.
LK/MK Scratch Wheels are in a counterhit state during it’s first active frame. The move can trade and still result in being counterhit.[Fixed in Dec 13th 2014 update
LK/MK Scratch Wheel is throw invincible but only during the last 2F startup and first 2F active frames. (may be intentional)
HK Scratch wheel is throw invincible but only during the first 3F active frames. (May be intentional)
LK Scratch wheel first hit causes more knockback on air counterhit than it does on a regular air hit.
HK Scratch Wheel does less damage than MK Scratch wheel (May be intentional but I dunno why)
All Scratch wheels are missing an “End on Land” operation flag that all DP specials have
LK Spin Scythe wont buffer FADC or super combo during it’s first 7F startup frames.
MK Spin Scythe wont buffer FADC or super combo during it’s first 5F startup frames.
HK Spin Scythe wont buffer FADC or super combo during it’s first 7F startup frames.
EX Spin Scythe cannot be FADC’d on hit/block. (Probably intentional, but odd since normal versions can be)
EX Spin Scythe seems to have an odd issue where you can dash through her back during the moves execution if you jump over her.[Fixed in Dec 13th 2014 update]

LP Mallet Smasher does not gain any additional frame advantage on counterhit for 2nd hit.
MP Mallet Smasher does not gain any additional frame advantage on counterhit for either 1st or 2nd hit.
HP Mallet Smasher 2nd hit has 4F more hitstun on crouching than it does on standing. Which I think leads to the following:
HP Mallet Smasher 2nd hit does not gain any additional frame advantage on counterhit.
EX Mallet Smasher 1st hit gains less additional frame advantage on counterhit than regular versions (may be intentional)
EX Mallet Smasher 2nd hit has 1F more hit stop for Elena than it does opponent (Normally hitstop for opponent is equal to or greater than attacker.)
EX Mallet Smasher 2nd hit has more hitstun on crouching than on standing (Which leads to the following)
EX Mallet Smasher 2nd hit gains no additional frame advantage on counterhit vs crouching opponents.
LK Spin Scythe followup does not gain any additional frame advantage on counterhit.
EX Lynx Tail 2nd hit gains no additional frame advantage on counterhit.
Each strength of Rhino Horn use different knockdown animations. (May be intentional)
The first hit of EX Rhino Horn causes different knockback on air hit vs air counterhit.
Rhino horn does not have an “End on Land” operation flag.
Rhino Horn landing script is considered “crouching” but does not have a “Crouch” operation flag. This means that you have to stand up for 1F after Rhino horn recovers before you can crouch again. Even though the recovery itself is crouching.
Super/Ultra
Reeling animations can cause only the first hit of Super to connect vs crouching opponents.
Super does not have an “End on Land” operation flag like other DP type moves.
Ultra 1 only grants the opponent meter on the first hit. The opponent will only gain a total of 5 meter if hit by UC1. [Fixed in Aug 8th 2014 update]

W-Ultra full healing does NOT have a “crouch” operation flag but U2 does.

Evil Ryu
Normals
Chained close LP is in the “Ground” cancel list. Evil Ryu cannot perform non-chained version of close LP. Hitting LP up close always results in the “chained” version of the attack coming out as it has higher priority than normal closeLP. This prevents special or super canceling close LP. New to USF4 Fixed in 1.04
Chained close LK can be special canceled on hit/block. (May be intentional)
Chained close LP hurtbox is different than normal version of close LP hurtbox
close MP, LK, MK, and HK do not have hurtboxes designated during startup frames. Hurtboxes are based entirely on model and animation during these frames.
F+MK has empty physics settings (may be intentional)

Fei Long
System Mechanics
The hurtbox position on a level 3 Focus attack’s active frames is different than on level 1 and level 2 or a level 3 EX Focus
During forward dash Fei’s head pushbox gets in the way causing him to be significantly farther from the opponent than if he just walks forward. This has been adjusted before for some characters (Cody and Makoto) so it may be intentional.

Gen
System Mechanics
Stance change in mid air after an attack still causes you to be in the old stance if you attempt an attack as soon as you land (Mantis stance -> Jumping HP -> Switch to Crane in mid air -> Land -> crLK results in still getting mantis stance crLK unless you wait until after the landing frames fully finish to input crLK)
Crouching reeling animations can cause many attacks to miss, especially after heavy attacks or jump ins.
Level 3 focus hurtbox during attack portion is different than level 1/2 focus or a level 3 EX Focus. This is applied to both stances focus attacks.
Spin Out Knockdown reeling animation does not repeat. Gen will only spin 1 time then fall normally, this is different than any other character.
Normals
(Mantis Stance)
Attempting to chain sLP into another sLP has different timing when canceling a sLP that has already been chained into. The timing the game recognizes the input is 1F slower for chained sLP vs normal sLP
chained sLK has a different interrupt as soon as point than normal sLK. The frame data is the same overall due to speed settings but this leaves Gen’s leg extended during recovery frames for longer if he chains into sLK making it easier to whiff punish.
crMP can be special/super canceled during the first 2F of it’s recovery frames on hit/block (Standard for moves is to end the cancel option on the last active frame) (may be intentional for Hyakurenko cancel purposes)
All Mids and Heavies only grant 1-2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F. However as almost all of Gen’s mids and heavies already normally have 2F more hitstun than other character’s mids/heavies it may be intentional.
(Crane stance)
sLP has different recovery times when used up close vs standing far. This does NOT apply to chained versions.
sLK when chained into has 1F less recovery than normal sLK. In addition the animations run at different speeds causing the move to be more or less vulnerable at different points in the attack.
All Mids and Heavies only grant 1-2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F. However as almost all of Gen’s mids and heavies already normally have 2F more hitstun than other character’s mids/heavies it may be intentional.
Specials
crMP (Crane) canceled into Jyasen will whiff first hit and not combo when performed using MP or HP versions or LP+HP/MP+HP ex versions. (May be intentional)

Gouken
System Mechanics
Techable window for Back Throw is 10F longer than normal (1-17F instead of 1-7F) As the move is a 5F startup throw it should probably be able to be teched for 2F longer than a 3F throw but not 10F longer.
Normals
Angled Jump HK has an “ignore physics” flag for 4F of it’s startup. (Pretty sure this is intentional but it’s so odd/unique that I’m not sure.)
Chained far LP has a larger hurtbox than normal far LP
Chained crouching LP has a smaller hurtbox than normal crouching LP.
Chained crouching LK has 1F slower startup than normal crouching LK.
F+MP only grant +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids. (may be intentional.)
Specials
Poison will fall out of Gouken’s HK Tatsu before the last hit. New to USF4
If a tatsu is performed near the corner Gouken can be punished on hit by Cody’s badspray.
EX Senkugoshoha (Palm rush) is in a counterhit state until the SECOND part of the attack occurs. This means for 15F after the move has become active you can hit Gouken and it will result in a counterhit.
Demon Flip - Throw option is counterhittable on startup. This is contrary to almost every other command throw. Akuma’s DF - Throw does not have counterhit on startup frames. (May be intentional)
On block fully charged versions of all hadokens build and grant opponent 100% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
On block all Air Tatsu’s builds and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
On block Demon Flip - Slide builds and grant opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter gain instead of 50%
Multi hit attacks that cause the attacker to come out of impact freeze significantly sooner than the opponent will break Gouken’s counter even if they aren’t armor breakers. For example, Blanka’s close MK. The first hit causes only 8F impact freeze for Blanka but 15F impact freeze for the opponent. This allows Blanka to connect the 2nd hit of close MK before Gouken’s counter activates from the first hit.
Super/Ultra
UC2 does not have a counterhit state whatsoever. Hitting Gouken during the charging or release of Denjin will not result in a counterhit.
W-Ultra2 when fully charged has inconsistent stun damage. At max screen distance it will do 660(65x4+100x4). Max screen distance then Gouken performs a forward dash or any movement to close the distance between himself and opponent the stun becomes 695 (65x3+100x5). Point blank the stun is 520 (65x8). Max range with spinning the stick to increase fireball movement speed results in 590 (65x6 + 100x2). This is likely due to the fact the stun damage scales at 65% for Gouken’s U2 while the damage is 75%. Seems that the 65% stun scaling will turn off once Gouken has recovered from the Ultra 2 and starts any other script (Walk/Dash/jump/whatever) but the damage scaling stays active.[Fixed in Dec 13th 2014 update]
On block the first hit of super grants the opponent 100% of the “on hit” meter instead of 50%
On block the first hit of UC1 grants the opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter instead of 50%

Guile
System Mechanics
Head pushbox gets in the way during standing and forward walking causing inconsistencies in distance for many character’s attacks as well as his own.
There is a strange glitch with Guile’s turn around script that seems to cause problems with correcting his flash kick direction on the frames he turns around. It can also be seen by recording the training mode dummy to crouch for exactly 1F then replaying the command. Guile will slide backwards if you jump over him while all other characters will remain stationary.
Normals
None of Guile’s close standing normals have hurtboxes designated during startup frames. They are all entirely based on model and animation.
Guile can cancel a chained light attack into his B+LK or F+LK. (May be intentional)
Specials
All Sonic Booms except EX do 30% chip instead of 25% (Probably intentional. Odd that they wouldn’t give it to EX though)
Super/Ultra
On Block Super and UC1 grant opponent only 25% meter of the “on hit” meter gain value instead of the standard 50%
UC2 hits 2-5 do only 19% chip instead of 25% (damage was not increased on block to reflect new distribution for those hits. Total chip damage is now LESS than in AE2012 as last hit was adjusted.) New to USF4

Far HK can trade and still result in a counterhit. 1st active frame still considered in a counterhit state. New to USF4 [Fixed in Oct 15th 2014 update]
chained crouching LK has a 1F slower startup than normal crouching LK. In addition the frames where Guy can turn around during the startup of crLK last 2F longer when chained into.
close HP has no hurtbox designated during any point. The hurtbox is entirely based on the characters model and animation. This also applies to the target combo and bushin chain versions of close HP (so likely intentional)
close MK only grant +2F additional frame advantage on counterhit instead of the standard +3F for mids. (may be intentional.)
The 2nd hit of Ninja Sickle (D+F+HK) grants the opponent more meter on hit and block than it gives Guy.

Dry EX Oil Slide has a head pushbox enabled while Oiled EX Oil Slide does not. (may be intentional)
Oil Dive while oiled has a worse/different hitbox than while dry. (May be intentional)
The animation flag for Hakan’s Oil Slide “Hasei Oil” has the incorrect Physics flagged animation. This means that inputting Oil slide -> Oil Shower followup will cause the oil slide to move significantly shorter distance than normal oil slide would.
If you input a slide followup you cannot FADC the attack if the attack is blocked. The Slide Hasei script does not allow super canceling (May be intentional)

UC2 while oiled is not considered crouching, while dry it is in a crouching state during the startup and part of the recovery frames.

Hugo
Misc
There is a graphical glitch on Hugo’s hair in the Viking costume during Cammy’s ultra 1. According to original finder it only occurs with the white color.
System Mechanics
Hitting an airborne opponent with a level 1 EX Red Focus will cause a spin out knockdown instead of the universal standard knockdown.
Hugo is invincible longer than any other character when rising from a stun as the rising animation plays slower than any other character by more than double.[Fixed in Dec 13th 2014 update]
Pushbox during rising animation from stun can cause players to end up behind him when neutral jumping in front of him.
Pushbox causes Hugo to be farther away than other characters when hit by command throws that allow for combos after. This results in Yang only being able to get far normals instead of close normals.
Move list priority is incorrectly set. Hugo’s super and ultras are ranked as higher than appeal or focus. This allows for canceling focus attack into ultra / super by utilizing an armor absorb cancel.
All Focus Attacks do not have a counterhit state for the last 3F of startup.
Level 1 EX Red Focus hitbox reaches farther than any other focus attack hitbox (May be intentional?)
Forward Throw and Back Throw builds 60 meter on hit instead of the standard 40 meter for throws.
Hugo does not have a “Guard2Crouch”, “Guard2Stand”, “Stand2Guard”, or “Crouch2Guard” transition scripts.

standing LK last start up frame is not in a counterhit state. It is possible to stuff the attack on start up and not get a counterhit.
sMK on hit will skip 3F of it’s recovery due to a flow script setup. (I’m fairly certain this is intentional but it’s the first time I’ve seen it ever done on normal attack.)

On block HK Senpusha (Pinwheel) builds and grants opponent 66.6% of the “on hit” meter insteadof 50%
The last hit of HK Senpusha sets the juggle count to 99 if it is the first hit to cause a knockdown in a combo, but if it’s not and you juggle into HK Senpusha you can still juggle after. (May be intentional)
The rear facing hitboxes for EX Senpusha will cause different knockdown physics if they connect as a counterhit vs an air borne opponent than a normal hit vs airborne.
The 1st Followup to all Dive Kicks (Aka “Second Impact”) will not cause a knockdown if it hits a crouching opponent.
The 2nd followup to EX Dive Kick (AKA Third Strike) does not cause any blockstun.
Feng Shui Engine [Note: There are TWO versions of every ground normal in FSE. Chaining from a normal of the same strength gives you a different normal than doing it raw. Doing LP->MP will give you the version of MP that is used in neutral position. Doing MK->MP gives you a different version of MP that prevents you from chaining back into MK.]
None of the Jumping Normals setup for FSE are used (These normals would cause a knockdown on air hit as well as allowing chaining into other air normals. This is PROBABLY intentional but I’m not sure.)

Rolento
System Mechanics
Crouching hurtbox results in many attacks whiffing that normally would not whiff on any crouching opponent. Very inconsistent combos against him for multiple characters.
Focus attack shifts throw box backwards far enough to cause throws to whiff when performed and opponent is right next to him.
Taunt/Appeal does not have a strict directional requirement. All other characters require the stick to be in the neutral position for taunt to be performed.
Forward and Back Throw only build 30 meter instead of the standard 40 meter for throws.
Forward dash physics are retained for several frames after the move has technically recovered. The transitional frames still have forward movement physics setup.
Neutral Jump Landing animation (after an attack) does not have a “Crouch” operation flag allowing you to transition to crouching without passing through standing after the move has recovered. This makes Rolento vulnerable to moves that normally can’t hit crouching for 1F longer than other characters after landing from an NJ air attack.
Guard_S does not have a “crouch” operation flag allowing you to transition to crouching without passing through standing. I’m not sure but I believe this makes Rolento more susceptible to fuzzy guards as Guard_S (other chars call it Guard_Stand) is the script used for proximity blocking. (Other characters Guard_Stand has an operation flag for “Crouch”)
Head pushbox causes inconsistent distances during forward walking on crouching opponents.
Rolento does not have a “Guard2Crouch”, “Guard2Stand”, “Stand2Guard”, or “Crouch2Guard” transition scripts.
Normals
close LP cannot turn around during first 2F startup like other light attacks.

Snake Strike can trade and still result in a counterhit. It is still in a counterhit state during the first 4F active frames.
Snake Strike causes more knockback on counterhit vs airborne opponents than on a regular hit. This means that you can get less damage on a counterhit Snake Strike as it will knock opponents out of the remaining hits.

None of Ryu’s close standing normals have hurtboxes designated at any point during the attack. They are instead based entirely on model and animation.
Specials
Hadoken does less than normal chip damage. (Was intentional. However when Capcom upped Ken’s fireball from 60 to 70 they increased the chip but not Ryu’s. Thought it might be an oversight.)

EX Tiger Upper (and Angry Charge EX Tiger Upper) 1st hitbox is not set like his other Tiger Uppers and just uses the fist itself (May be intentional)
EX Tiger Upper (and Angry Charge EX Tiger Upper) do not cause proximity blocking.
Low tiger shot and high tiger shot have the same Super combo cancel frames (14-15F) even though the startup on high tiger shot is 1F faster. This means that a low tiger shot - EX FADC will have 1F more frame advantage than a high tiger shot - EX FADC.
High Tiger shot is in a counterhit during the first active frame. You can trade with the attack and still be counterhit.

UC2 seems to have an odd issue during specific frames where jumping over Sagat and attempting to attack him during certain frames will result in passing through him entirely harmlessly.

Sakura
System Mechanics
Crouching reeling animations can cause many attacks to miss, especially after heavy attacks or jump ins.
During forward dash Sakura’s head pushbox gets in the way causing her to be significantly farther from the opponent than if she just walks forward. This has been adjusted before for some characters (Cody and Makoto) so it may be intentional.
Level 3 EX Focus attack has a different hitbox size than Level 3 Focus attack

All Sakura Otoshi’s and followups do not have hurtboxes designated during any point. They are all entirely based on model + animation.
EX Hadoken does not have a “Can cross up” flag, this makes it harder to hit as a meaty on wakeup as it can’t hit behind an opponent’s center line.

EX Sonic Boom Seth is in a counterhit state even after the first sonic boom has become active (may be intentional)
Ex Tanden Engine, hitting an airborne opponent who is not in a juggle state will cause subsequent attacks to add to juggle count as though they were airborne even though the opponent is grounded. This means attacks such as Seth’s crHP will only get 1 hit and then whiff the 2nd hit instead of getting both hits. Only occurs when hitting an opponent who is not already in the middle being comboed (such as hitting Ryu during his tatsu)
Super/Ultra

Thought I should mention it again in the appropriate thread this time since this bug is still a major pain when I attempt to do it in tournaments (only to get punished and burning 3 bars).


#7

Thought about it, realized it’s simply the game working exactly how it’s supposed to. You can cancel into super on any frame before the last 3 hits as long as the attack has hit. That is how most moves work actually, you don’t have to cancel specifically on the frame the attack hits. Sometimes doing a delayed cancel intentionally can get you a combo you couldn’t get otherwise (Cody’s crHP xx HK Ruffian on some chars, doing extra loops of sonic booms with Guile.)

So when you hit an attack what happens on the next frame? The opponent recovers a by 1F as do you, and so on. If you cancel late enough after one hit connects but before the next hit there isn’t enough frame advantage left for the move to combo to focus attack.

Take a look at HP HHS frame data

9/2(4)1(3)2(4)1(2)2(4)1(3)2/13

So say you hit the 3rd hit on the first active frame, 9/2(4)1(3)**2(4)**1(2)2(4)1(3)2/13 . That’s a 6F window for the cancel to be input. You input it right on the same frame it hits the Focus attack starts up on the very next frame. However you have 5F from the frame it hits to the next active frame. Say you input it on the frame right before the 4th hit connects, you’ll have 5F less frame advantage when the focus starts resulting in it being blocked.

Every hit in HP HHS has 24F hitstun. Level 1 focus is 21F startup. That only allows for a 3F window to cancel for an EX RF to hit. Hits 1~3 of HP HHS all have a larger than 3F window to cancel before the next hit connects.

I hope that rambling explanation makes sense. Bottom line: working as intended, just not as ideal.

Weird bug found, Rose’s closeMK remains throw invincible for 2F after the move has “recovered” as long as you leave the stick in neutral, similar to Makoto’s neutral throw invincibility quirk.


#9

Genei Jin Shoulder Slam all versions first hit grants the opponent no meter on air hit unless it’s a counter hit. All versions first hit grant the opponent half of normal meter on crouching counter hit.

Bug I missed.


#10

“Dash_H” effect is lost since v1.04. v1.03 still has it.


#11

This isn’t very clear, what exactly does this affect and on whom does it change things?


In other news, the thread is now up to date with 1.05 changes on fixed bugs.

I thought this is already well-known but no one care to address that out. At least one ever used OnoTool must know what I am talking about: Ono tool, under Scripts - ETC - “Dash_H” is one of the GFX2 graphic effect.

This particular one deal with dust effect. Eg: when shotos release a fireball or dragon punch, there should be dust on ground blew from character to his/her back. This bug applies for each character because this is a general basic graphic effect shared by the system associate everyone.

Try Hadoken or DP with PC version’s USF4 v1.04 and v1.05 you will realize no dust. This is an version bug which has nothing to do with edition select. For example, even you select vanilla edition Ryu, or try the “Trial” mode which is using Super Street Fighter IV’s bac/bcm, you still cannot see any “Dash_H” dust
Hope that is clear enough for you :slight_smile:
