  1. This topic gets made like every 2 weeks, so I'm making it now save everyone the trouble. GENERAL ADVICE FOR PICKING A MAIN: 1. watch videos of good players using a character, see if the general gameplan they use is what you want to do. 2. look up combos for the character, and try them out in training mode. 3. play with the character yourself, see if you like using him/her/it.
  2. Strange, I'll look into it, likely just folder doesn't have write access or something similar

  4. This thread gets made every two weeks, so I'll save you guys the trouble and make one for you. Guilty Gear button Layout (for XX, #R, Slash, and AC) = punch, = kick, = slash, = heavy slash, = dust, = nothing BlazBlue button layout Type A: Type B: :n: = A, = B, etc, = nothing In the arcades, you pick either one of the configurations before you pick your character. In CS there is also an easy mode option, but no one who plays seriously uses it. Persona button layout: for all games, the taunt/respect doesn't have a real defined location, since it varies depending on what type of arcade cabinet you play on. So people who play on consoles with an arcade stick just put taunt/respect anywhere or don't even assign it to a button if they know they don't ever want to press it on accident. General advice: 1. go into training mode and practice combos, setups, moving around (running, instant air dashing, super jumping, etc) 2. if you're having problems doing certain things (like say performing a motion), then set training mode to show your inputs (trust me it's there) and look at what you're doing wrong. Then practice doing the motion correctly. 3. PRACTICE. PLAY OTHER PEOPLE. DON'T GIVE UP Buying a Joystick: http://www.dustloop.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3428 shoryuken.com also has a lot of resources involving stick buying/building/modding. Holding a Joystick: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsME37GrqjY this isn't an definitive guide, it just shows some common ways people hold joysticks. Find (or develop) a way to grip the joystick that's comfortable and usable for you.
  5. Unfortunately, I'm going to be very busy for the next few months with personal issues, so I need help getting the frame data onto the character pages (the ones with the images), as they still have data from the old games. If you'd like to help, feel free to start updating the pages; you don't need an account to make edits on he wiki! If you have questions on how to edit the wiki or notice wrong values in the frame data, feel free to message me.

  9. COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF TERMS ON THE WIKI http://www.dustloop.com/wiki/index.php?title=Notation Some simple ones: WHAT DO THE NUMBERS MEAN? 789 456 123 look at a numpad on a keyobard. Each number represents a direction so 6 is right and 8 is straight up. 5 would be neutral (not moving in any direction). 236A would be a street fighter styled fireball motion and pressing the A button. WHAT'S A FRAME? a frame is the smallest unit of time in a fighting game. Most fighting games run at 60 frames per second, so instead of using terms like 0.0125 seconds, we just say 1 frame. For example an attack that starts up in 12 frames means it will be active in 0.2 seconds. WHAT ARE ALL THE ABBREVIATIONS/ LINGO? read the conventions link. Here are a few common ones: CH = counter hit j = while jumping so j.2C = while jumping, press down + C black beat/ blue beat = a combo that the opponent could have escaped out of if they had teched hit confirm = a technique of only doing the rest of a combo if the first hit actually hits the opponent. Some of these can be quite hard. whiff = an attack that completely misses the opponent. Imagine your attack hitting only the air. cancel = performing a second attack while the first attack is still happening thereby canceling the animation of the first attack. There are very many types of cancels, and they are all used for various things. link = a combo where you must wait for the first attack to recover completely before doing the second attack. Links typically take some time to do consistently, so keep on practicing! gatling = revolver action = normal attacks that cancel into one another. mixup = having the opportunity to attack the opponent in 2 or more ways at once without giving the opponent much time to react (high/low/crossup/throw). crossup = jumping over the opponent and hitting them just as the opponent's character turns around. This is useful as it's difficult to block and stops the opponent from doing DPs (because their inputs will be reversed when you cross them up). tiger knee = the act of doing an air attack very low to the ground. Comes from the command for Sagat's Tiger Knee attack in Street Fighter 2. EX: doing Jin's j.236C by pressing 2369C. chicken block = jumping into the air and blocking rather than standing on teh ground and being forced to guess a high-low mixup. MORE ABBREVIATIONS DP = dragon punch. Refers to attacks whose utility is similar Ryu's dragon punch from street fighter. This does not mean that the motion to perform the move needs to be the same. SRK = shoryuken = dragon punch FD = faultless defense = barrier block. A type of blocking where you negate chip damage and increase pushback at the cost of meter. IB = instant block. Blocking just before an attack strikes you makes you flash white, recover faster, etc. FC = fatal counter. Blazblue specific mechanic for making all subsequent attacks in a combo deal more hitstun IK = instant kill. Guilty Gear specific mechanic for instant killing an opponent. Mostly for show. OCV = one character victory. Used in team battles where one player defeats the entire opposing team.
