Re: Why SF2 Ryu Ken by Fido is hard to perform Shoryuken?

Are you making sure your input ends in down+forward?  The SF2 series doesn't have a lenient input buffer like later games, your shoryu input has to be precise.

Officially season 2 of CPT doesn't start until June, but since this patch releases at the end of May I think it's fair to call it the s2 update. 

Notably, they did not refer to the DLC characters as "season 1" but rather "year 1" so it seems like the two won't be congruent, as we can see with the balance update launching alongside Akuma and not the first character of the second pack.

Tested him on Ikemen:
-He can combo his HP into HK axe kick and it can lead into an infinite unless the opponent blocks and react with a fast normal, increasing the startup of the HK axe kick might solve this problem.

I haven't downloaded the character yet but generally Kage needs to use crouch fierce not standing in order to combo into HK axe kick.  If you're able to block it shouldn't be an infinite.

I guess they don't see it as a loss because of how niche the IPs they're working with are. 

Honestly, the romhack bit is a good point.  If someone REALLY wanted to they could very likely just hack the roms for these games to reflect balance changes, provided there's no new visual assets (ie new sprites) which is highly doubtful to begin with.  I'm sure that would not end well given Japanese companies' history with this sort of thing (ie French Bread vs UNIST modders) but it does kind of expose the problem with the entire thing.

True to an extent.  It can't be overstated just how badly the pandemic hit the already vulnerable Japanese arcade industry (seriously, look up all the game centers that went under, the numbers are STAGGERING) but there's still enough revenue to justify releasing games there.  Considering that these releases are all very niche enthusiast titles there's a chance that they see it as a safe enough investment compared to big publishers releasing internationally known sequels for a global audience knowing they'll see a return on it.

Ex-A has actually been flirting with the idea of going stateside for a while, they've been bringing their cabs to conventions and events.  But even if they do commit to that it's gonna be very difficult for most to get a shot at playing their games.  You don't really see arcades or game centers in the US anymore, and when you do they're mostly barcades that stick to the big names.  It's kind of a self defeating prophecy if you live outside of Japan, since the nature of fighting games means you'll need to keep playing which is going to be impossible when you have only one weekend to fight other people, and no access to the game for the rest of the year.

Arcade exclusivity in 2024 is genuine insanity.  Literally sending these games out to die. 

That being said, I suspect the upcoming RotD Neo port will have the same balance changes.

I feel it's worth noting that the Granblue character sprites were converted from official in game models.  I don't intend to discount the very impressive work Jinny has done converting them into usable Mugen sprites, but big budget game assets made by a  team of professionals at Arc System Works are obviously going to be of much higher quality than something drawn by a single amateur hobbyist making their own stuff on their own time.  The comparison is totally unfair.

Yes, there are many talented sprite artists in the community.  But even then, I also don't think it's fair to lambast anyone who isn't producing work on the level of MotorRoach, SeanAltly, Wou, Bugya or the like.  Even an Olympic swimmer has to start with the shallow end, and that's assuming one even wishes to become one in the first place.

I could be mistaken, but I thought the sand/dust stuff was purely cosmetic and not an elemental power of some sort.  Like, is Eddy not just kicking up sand with the force of his attacks?  That's what I thought it was anyway.

This is some of the most impressive work I've ever seen for the engine.  It's right up there with what Mr. I has done to bring the modern SF characters into Mugen.

I don't comment on new releases very often anymore, but this stage is absolutely gorgeous.  Just looking at those screenshots had my jaw on the floor!

The name is mildly funny though, such a colorful stage named for the primordial darkness in Greek mythology.

Yeah, that's not super uncommon honestly.  Characters can change a lot between concept art and finalization.

Like it or not, a substantial story mode is an important part of the package now.

We're not in the arcade days anymore when you could chip in a few quarters and play for about 30 minutes.  It's expected that purchasing a home release for 70 bucks or so is going to afford you more content.  Street Fighter V did not do that, and it was part of the reason why it had such a poor launch, and part of the reason why that mistake has not been repeated.  Sega does clearly intend for VF to be one of their flagship brands, so it's unlikely that they'll release a low budget meat and potatoes fighting game package for a discounted price.  They already did that with Ultimate Showdown, and it's great, but they seem to be looking to release something of a much higher scope.

A story mode will not deprive Virtua Fighter of its identity.  The only thing that could do that would be drastic changes to the formula.

Maybe you could reserve it exclusively for the main baddies?  Dictator, Geese, Shao Kahn, Terumi, those guys.

I am unfamiliar with Ikemen, but could you not use name triggers to read "heel" characters?  Maybe drawing a list from Kim's intro?

That is true.

However, in Cross Tag if you combo into the astral heat, it skips the counter and just activates the attack.  I have not downloaded Kamui yet, so maybe that's the case here too.

Looks nice.

However, I think you should use a different small portrait.  Baiken doesn't wear the eyepatch in her older design, so it looks a bit strange.
