KoF02 UM is a fun game with one of my favorite FG characters in it. I recommend playing some of the old rear end Fatal Fury games too even if they're p old, it's always fun to see GEESE's origins.

I'd also recommend Maximum Impact because of how loving stupid it is, but that's not one I'd recommend for anything other than Schadenfreude. Ikari Warriors, Art of Fighting, basically if an old game has characters from later KoF games in it then I'd say play it to at least get familiar with character origins.

good at everything except communicating if they will release xrd

Hah, apparently Namco got Akuma in Tekken by allowing Capcom to use their patented training mode stuff, no cash money involved.

(link in portuguese: http://games.tecmundo.com.br/notici...nada_822995.htm)
id think that having a good training mode would just be an extension of some sort of developer tool. the fact that they couldnt do this without help speaks volumes

I heard that a lot and just thought Lee got really excited when he Bill Cosby'd somebody in a match. Good to know it's universal.

I'm also trying out Garou Mark of the Wolf, that's a bit more complicated than Karnov's Revenge. Not a ton of info out there, but I THINK I have some very basics down with Gato for now, plus some combo that does like 90% damage in the corner. I thought it would play more like KoF, but turns out I'm pretty wrong on that front. Fightcade is fun.

what do you mean not a ton of info?

heres some info:

that game loving sucks

also this:
http://wiki.shoryuken.com/Garou:_Mark_of_the_Wolves

there actually is a plethora of info out there for practically every game if you know where to look. srk wiki has poo poo for most of the games that get played on fightcade. between this and youtube you now have enough information to learn for yourself why garou is a monster piece of poo poo.

I looked at the SRK wiki. The general mechanics are outlined pretty well but there's not a ton of info beyond very basic combos for most of the characters (except for Rock Howard for some reason? I guess he's popular despite everybody saying he's awful.)

Like, I was trying to figure out some stuff with Gato but even with youtube there's like two matches where he's being played. I'm sure info is out there, I didn't look that hard, but it's jarring going from newer popular games to fightcade things.

I also didn't realize the game sucked, I have two friends who insist it's the best fighting game ever aside from 3rd strike which I hate. I'm open to suggestions, though.

the game is only fun because it sucks. free guard cancels and an instant block that heals you are great fun if you aren't an awful player, especially if there is a skill disparity. thats not a reason to not play it by any means... most of the most fun games are loving atrocious once you explore them enough. playing garou well against people that think its good is a great feeling. most pages on the wiki have a cancel chart and the game is pretty easy to explore the feint cancels and stuff in. there are some really neat tool assisted vids for garou as well that are worth checking out to see some of the potential for different stuff

if you want to play the busted poo poo, just pick kevin

edit: wowwww thats the worst one in that tas series for sure. the other ones are way cooler :|

Thanks for the tips, I'll give it some more time tomorrow.

I really only started playing fighting games beyond a casual level late last year, so I'm trying to expand my horizons somewhat considering the only non-SF game I know how to play is KoFXIII. I've played the older Steam KoF games somewhat as well. Glancing at the numbers on fightcade at the moment, aside from KoF 98 and 02 it looks like most people play 3rd strike (in which I have no interest), Marvel vs. Capcom (which I kind of hated) and Vampire Saviour. I think I'll try VSav next.

Any hidden gems that I should be checking out? There's also a bunch of people on JoJo's, maybe I'll give that a shot too. I don't particularly care about the number of people playing, I'm just using popularity as a measure of quality which I realize isn't the best idea.

using popularity isnt the best idea but its the easiest way to find varied skill levels of players. thats the real trouble with fightcade, when you're bad at any game and if it only has a few people in the room they might be gods. like in the vsav room theres a total of like 10 people that even play and to get to their level its going to take a LOT of grinding. finding bad players like yourself outside of fightcade, like in IRC rooms and in this thread or others and grinding out matches with them can help catch up.

as far as games worth messing around in on fightcade, I personally mess around in quite a few games.

breakers revenge is really fun but its filled with rear end in a top hat players and also you will lose a lot.
xmen cota has like randomly 1 person in the room and its loving BattousaiCV and you will only lose and never win.
karnovs has only killers also...
marvel super heroes is the same...
cyberbots is a cool game with like 2 players... and they are way better than you
xmen vs sf has a medium-sized and varied player pool but its mostly killers..
kof98 and 2k2 are cool because they have a lot of middle-of-the-road players in both rooms from all over the world.
3s has a high variation in skill levels but if you're starting now you're going to be really behind. there are people in there that even I can beat so you probably have a chance.
ST is extremely unforgiving (its in the list as Super Street Fighter II X Grand Master Challenge btw). there are tons of bad players but even people just running gimmicks in this game can be very frustrating.
SFA3 is a horrible game much like garou but its fun for a laugh. lots of good players in the room but mostly mediocre kaillera caliber stars
SFA2 is a decent enough game but the emulation in this current version of FBA sucks so bad. it may be possible to have fun in this game!
jojos... good loving luck. cool game but http://wiki.standcrash.com/index.php?title=Main_Page hit the books if you want to win

oh, and puzzle fighter is on there. i'm trying to play but the people in there are too good.

Fighting randoms on fightcade is fun sometimes but especially when you're just getting started, having battle buddies you can depend on is where its at.

Oh, and IMO the best way to get good at fighting games in general is to play as many games as possible. there does exist a general skillset for playing fighters that can be difficult to develop if you only play a few (especially newer) games

Well, Madscientist seems to be working directly with Arcsys to implement rollback, but it's still on its early stages - they're not sure if it's gonna be a new implementation, if they're just gonna license CCCaster, etc. The good thing is that Melty is already dead, so that which is dead may eternal lie and poo poo.

Japanese game devs taking advice from a westerner and likely being in charge of implementation sounds shaky to me

I've been using my hori RAP4 for probably a year and a half at this point and I think I'm gonna swap out the stick for something that's a little less loose. Idk if it's from use or being too hard on the stick but now when I let go of it to snap back to neutral it will usually hit the opposite input, which is no good! I cracked open the case and tightened the spring screw and that seems to have helped but I'm still gonna swap it. Any recommendations on good parts?

it fits sanwa and seimetsu sticks and those are your best bet, they both have different feels to them though. i don't know which one is closer to the hayabusa stick that the rap4 uses but i think that its trying to be basically the standard sanwa jlf https://www.focusattack.com/sanwa-jlf-tp-8yt-joystick/

the seimetsu ls-32 is pretty good for anime games if you play those

fadam posted:

Apparently the place near me wasn't going to let people use sticks until everyone told them that was stupid.

this sounds like the old anime con tournaments where only stock controllers/no button binds were allowed and they did wierd stuff like single elimination. fg players used to go to cons just to win anime tournies for free but then too many people started doing that...

In Training posted:

Thanks! I do primarily play anime games, any reason why you recommend the seimetsu for that? Seems like the major difference is that the seimetsu is stiffer, which I might prefer.

you dont have the move the stick as far to get it to hit the switches basically. people call this the throw of the stick, so if you see people online saying that its what they're talking about. so stuff like air dashes and direction double taps can be much easier. it's also stiffer yeah. and you can always get aftermarket hard springs that are easy to install if you want even more. there are other seimetsus but i think people only use like the ls-56 for playing shmups or something. the ls-32 is great for anime games and iirc was the standard for guilty gear cabs.

which part is street fighter? is there an interaction with blocks/attacks/throws and movement across an asymmetrical cast that creates a dynamic game experience centered around the concept of controlling space on a 2d playfield?
