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 …

GGPO Version .030 Frameskpping/Rollback issue

Edit (Nov.26.2011): It should be noted that after messing around with my settings- IIRC I just unplugged my router and connected my cable modem directly to my PC’s ethernet port- I lowered my ping number, which improved the frameskipping problem by a noticeable amount.

Should have used RK waterfall kick (DP+K in punch-style), whiffed vs air hurricane more than once, both times could have impacted the round significantly. (waterfall kick makes the opponent chose between …

Match breakdown: 1 (A-Rose vs X-Birdie)

(the following is posted as a thought exercise, and possibly just because I had too much free time) I play a lot of Rose, personally. So I feel the need to make a confession: I have no idea how to fight Rose when I’m on the other side of the match. Because I play somewhat …

Clandestine ninja updates

Firstly, uploaded a couple things from GGPO- but if you’re reading this there’s a good chance you check[ed] my YT page and already know that: +1 & ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Additionally, I made public a few videos which had been set to “private.” An old MvC2 video which I uploaded as public, but then set to private …
