What are I frames?


#1

ok ive been on srk for almost 4 years and I’ve never heard of this term.
What does this mean?

Ive also seen another term somewhere like in links or something like that.
il try to find it.


#2

???

I’ve also never heard this term. Sounds like it was a typo.


#3

frames of your attack where you can’t take damage. short for invicible frames.


#4

Where the fuck did you get that?


#5

invincibility/invulnerability frames


#6

impact frame.

ie the frame when a move can first make contact with an opponent:

i13 = the move has 12 frames of startup and hits/**impacts **on the 13th frame.

-dime


#7

funny how the opinions differ :slight_smile:


#8

invincibility frames


#9

i think he means 1 frame links for combos may be? Lol I have no idea what im talking about (unless im right)but felt like posting


#10

agreed. IMO, the phrase is more commonly associated with a game like ninja gaiden or GOW.


#11

i didnt know what that term meant either :sweat:

but imma believe this guy…


#12

that’s probably off a wiki or something. that’s talking about I-frames in website coding.

personally i have never heard the term I-frame in relation to fighting games, it was primarily a term from like 3-d action games like devil may cry and Ninja Gaiden

@nano5896: A book on HTML. :rofl:

I’m more willing to believe this, Tekken/Soul players use different jargon than we do… the other theory is just people being lazy :nono:


#14

Here’s some snippets of “I-frame” related discussions found through google. Most are from SRK.


#15

This is true. Common parlance among Soul Calibur players.


#16

I called those Active Frames. Ehh, I hate how different games use different lingo. Even though Impact Frames sounds better.


#17

I frames are invincibility frames.
