Who here has a TE/SE stick and uses shoto characters


#1

how do you manage to do good with them with the square gate? i have trouble pulling off moves sometimes… and there is no way i can do ultras/supers with the square gate… anyone else have this problem


#2

This the first time you got a stick?? You just gotta get used to it…keep practicing and stop whining


#3

I have no problem with the square gate. But then again, I learned Rog before trying any other characters. I picked up Viper recently and still no problems with the Square. Just get used to it or buy a octagonal gate. I liked how you mentioned TE/SE since those of course are the only sticks that use a JLF + square gate…

Here’s a hint… you don’t hit the sides of the square gate.


#4

It does take a little getting used to, but it will come naturally after time. Practice makes perfect.


#5

Like everybody is saying, it just takes time to get used to. At first I could barely do most of my moves, but after playing with it for a couple of days I was able to pull it off most of the time. I’ll admit there are times when I get the completely wrong move and I lose, but it doesn’t happen that often anymore.


#6

nono i can do the moves no problem… just doing ultras i cant do…


#7

time to hit the training room heheh


#8

So you can perform a QCF + P, but can’t do QCF QCF + PPP?


#9

I picked up a TE stick about a week ago and I felt like a noob again. Since then I have gotten use to it somewhat. I can do Guilles ultra so much easier on the TE fight stick, than on my modded SFA. Yet I have trouble with sonic booms on the TE at times. All we can do is mod it or keep practicing.

dont want to be a dick but this is the straight truth. Just practice with it. I bet you’re new to a square gate.

People usually bitch about sanwa’s sensitivity, and square gates when they are new to them.


#12

practice

#13

im not new to square gate… ive been playing sf4 ever since it came out with my hori ex2… i started out with ken… i could do everything with him extra ultras… i guess ill hit the training room


#14

Plenty of other threads address this.

But yes. It’s all about practice, especially if you’ve grown used to pads, or even american sticks. You owe it to yourself. Especially owning a stick so many would love to covet.

training mode

input display

practice


#16

just because random people are crying because they havent ever used a jlf before. get used to the square gate or be gay and buy a octagonal.

imagine if these guys started with ls-32s… they would be so pissed at their sticks…


#17

So you’ve been playing for 2 months? I wouldn’t say you’ve had that much practice then.

Quit whining and start practising, or do you want someone else to play the game for you? lol :rolleyes:


#18

you have to go for the diagonals on ultras. That is the main thing you need to practice. because if your memory muscle is not there. then you’re probably hitting :d: :f: inputs instead :qcf:. Also make sure you hit forward before you press any attack buttons.


#19

I use Sagat, Sakura and Dan. Just started gaming with the TE last weekend, after coming from an all-HAPP MAS stick, and actually prefer the square gate over octagonal – no troubles at all pulling off moves.


#20

I don’t use Shoto but I do use motion character(Cammy) and have no problems with moves.

you just need to practice and get used to the stick.

as someone mentioned above, do not ride the edges with a square gate. You’ll get stuck in diagonals when doing circular motions.

it takes a different thought and technique playing with Sanwa JLF/square.

less force, more finesse.
