Alright It’s been long enough, I must be doing something wrong. When I FADC the second Rekka I can barely make the close MK in time. I spend too much time transitioning for the ex FA into the dash I assume…I’ve only had this problem with yang.
Check out wongs FADC rekka: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmWlXLbFzBM Start watching at 1:53. His FADC is instant, he’s only gold for 1 frame!
I’ve been using my middle finger and thumb to fadc. I’ve seen gooteks just lay his middle finger on MP.MK.
Geez it sounds like I’ve just picked up vanilla SF4 or something. Any tips guys?
It’s hard to diagnose the problem but I think you may be inputting dashes before you are pressing mp+mk. After you input the 2nd rekka, press mp+mk. You don’t even need to wait until the animation of the 2nd rekka ends. Just instantly press mp+mk and then do your dash. The link into close s.mk is very easy. just wait until yang finishes the little hop animation for his dash.
The dash issues come from a shortcut. if you FADC after a QCF, your last input is forward. that forward counts as one of the 2 dash inputs you need to FADC. so you only need to dash once after a fireball, but you need to dash twice after a dragon punch.
Yeah. A lot of people FADC that way. I actually make all of my DPs a 6236 motion so I only have to tap forward once. But yeah just keep trying it different ways to find out what feels right for you. Try to do Rekka X2, FADC, nothing. just FADC into nothing for a while. then start adding mk, roll kick, Ultra 1, Ultra2 etc. Oh and as for hitting mk after the FADC, wait until Yang finishes his dash motion. Wait for him to land after that little hop he does.
Well according to what I’ve discovered and CHIMA confirmed, you don’t need that forward I underlined right? The forward is already in there from your second rekka. But yea that last part is exactly how I’m gonna finish it now.
Yea I know but I still prefer my way, because you can apply it to every character. Shoryu FADC, Flamekick FADC. Or something like absorbing a fireball and dash on impact. That shortcut CHIMA gave you it works. But imo its best to not use to many shortcuts to harm your execution. But that’s just me.
yang’s mantis FADC is a bit different from fireball FADC , there are quite a number of frame gab for you to execute FADC, that explains why you have problem hitting close mk … If you FADC at the first few frame right after you focus cancel you will have to wait for a split sec before punching in the mid kick , I hope you get what am I trying to say
