There’sa lot of back and forth about them being tournament legal though they are currently accepted as such.


Pointless detail you don’t need:

There’s a thing called socd cleaner (simultaneous opposing cardinal direction cleaner) which a hit box must have to be tournament legal. It makes it so you can’t input commands that are impossible on a stick, holding both left and right for example. This makes L+R=neutral and D+U=U but as a side effect you can do weird shortcuts that are near impossible to replicate on a stick.

Dashes
F, F is your general dash command. On a stick if you are walking forward and then dash there a slight delay where your character stops then dashes. On a hitbox you keep holding F and tap B,B. Since socd counts both forwards and back as neutral that registers as F, N, F, N, F super quick and the dash comes out without your character stopping walking.

Walking instant SRK
SRK is F, D, DF+P. On a stick if your perform that while walking your character stops and crouches for a split second. On a hitbox you hold F to walk them while holding forward you tap D,P and you do from walking straight into SRK.

Super moves
D, DF, F, D, DF F P can be done by holding F and tapping B+D, B+D, P and it comes out super quick. Again here it’s registered D F D F P because of socd and because most fighting games have lenient inputs it’s enough to activate a super.


It’s an interesting controller and an interesting time for fighters.

How realistic is it? When you're wearing it, do you find when you run you can only go 9 paces before running out of breath?

No, but I did attempt a toilet trip and my dick suddenly blew up in a flurry of sparks and smoke.

Addition -

Not strictly sent by post, but I should give mention to and give a massive thank you to my dude Pew-Pew too who helped me out with a newer build than I had after much of my own went kaput recently, she lasted me a good ten years. Not only that but delivered it to me personally which was fantastic of him and so greatly appreciated.

CPU: Intel i5 6600k @ 3.5Ghz
RAM: 16 GB of 2400? MHz DDR4
GPU: R9 280x - I managed to salvage my 1060
Mobo: Asus Z170-A
Case: Corsair 200R
PSU: Corsair CX750M
More love right here. I've been extremely fortunate people were willing to help me out when my first two attempts to get a new build failed, and I was pretty much looking at having nothing until at least the start of December or even into the new year.

Hori FIghting Edge. New its a £200-250 stick thats dang gorgeous and I just got this one from ebay for a tenner. :D Now it was disassembled and had no stick or buttons (Ive just put in some old ones I had from a TE1 stick to test it), its missing a bit of plastic from the underside and is missing the screws to hold on the brushed aluminium top plate but thats like £40 worth of parts all in even if I didn't have any handy. I'll probably swap the buttons and the balltop for black ones, clean up the aluminium and be done.

Chuffed! Come on SF6!




....yes because what I needed was more fighting game controllers ¬_¬
