More on Alpha 3’s red flash

There are many subsystems in Alpha 3, many of which aren’t in other SF games. I’m going to address here the red priority flash. There are 3 tinted color change flashes in Alpha 3, not counting the white air recovery flash: The blue “Timing Guard” aka Guard Protect (GP) blocking, which lowers the amount of …

Divekick counters video (proof of concept)

Not a legit video, but I don’t know when/if I’ll get around to making a more comprehensive one. Some characters have problems with Akuma’s divekick in A3 because of its speed and angle, and the fact that having to block it puts you in a bad situation, because guard damage is an added concern. It …

Weird red flash note

Lag and You: An Amuse-Bouche

With GGPO down for a few weeks, I tried Supercade, which is a great program, but its considered by some to be silver medalist to GGPO’s gold. My experiences with the program were pretty good, but there was a noticeable increase in input delay compared to GGPO. Input delay, for the unaware, is a form …

My a-cho video-video.

download link for the bored (50.4 mb) In order to celebrate the uploading of about 5 hours of A3 footage from Japan, and after being displeased with the relatively low number of hits that some of the videos have, I decided to make a video to direct traffic their way. Also, I hadn’t made a …
