making move combos work better on a usb controller.
« on: July 06, 2009, 11:37:20 PM »
Ok so I just got USB controllers today and I've noticed that a lot of special moves are not very reactive to the direction pad. Shuriuken for example is nigh impossible to perform. is there a way to configure the butten combination's to make them easier to use with a directional pad as opposed to a keyboard.

(note: I've read the topic on changing move commands and I think I get it. I just want to know what kinds of combos will work better on my directional pad.)
For those who are curious, yes I am gone and I don't intend to be back soon. I never formally said goodbye to you all, because that always becomes a forum stink. However, to my friends here, I wish you the best. Perhaps I'll be back one day but for now this is goodbye.

Maybe its the sensitivity on the controller, I believe with every generic controller driver you have the option to adjust the sensitivity. If not then there might be something wrong with the controller, meaning, and I'm not trying to be rude or cruel, but it might just be a generic controller with horrible construction and firmware. Last but not least make sure that the character's commands are listed like they should be which is :

Example:

command = ~D, DF, F, x This was copied from an actual .cmd file and this is how it should be coded to make it easy for the controller and if not than try changing it to:

command = ~D,  F, x for a haduken move. If this does not help then time for another controller my friend. I hope this helps. Cheers. :)

cool I'll try that. very possible that the controllers just suck. they where only $10 a piece. they got good customer reviews on amazon though.

should sensitivity be adjusted up or down???

Lets just hope the rating is good. :) Anyways try adjusting the sensitivity either way and see if that makes it smoother.

Oh forgot to mention, it pretty much worked. Its easier to do now though still harder than the keyboard (but maybe that has to do more with adjustment to using a controller in this game. I havn't played a fighting game on a console in ages, not since finding mugen anyways pretty much).

Anyhow thx once again.

Whether it was the sensitivity adjustment or the edit of the .cmd, I am glad you got it sorted out, Or at least somewhat did. And your quite welcome my good sir. :)

I think your just use to using the keyboard is all. And 239 is not that many characters, try in the thousands and then you can cry about it. ;D

I know I'm picky about characters. I hate ones that feel unfinished or poorly done.

BTW I was gonna try and adjust sensitivity too but I can't figure out how, thing didn't have it in the instructions. is there a general system you know of for doing that?

You were using Vista right, I recently upgraded to Vista, yeah I know what I said before but it has gotten better and XP has been giving me problems, anyhoo, go to control panel and there is an option to calibrate the controller, try using this first and see if that helps, last option is to use this program I will attach to this post as it will allow you to adjust the value of each axis's sensitivity which should do the trick , the idea if your going to use it is to pick an axis from the top right and move you pad and see that it works then edit the numbers of the max box to the right and see if that helps, I believe it was the lower the number, the higher the sensitivity, I can't remember, anyways experiment with this and see if it helps but try the calibration option in the control panel first. As always if there are any further questions you know where to find me. :)
