Superior Tech: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Chris, Sentinel, Iron Man combos & resets

A MvC3 video exploring combos, resets and DHCs for a squad of Chris, Sentinel and Iron Man was posted by TeamBrownTown. These aren't the flashiest of combos, instead the clip shows practical team combos and resets that work well with this squad.

The goal here was to achieve one touch kills without having to DHC through the whole team order, making the combos more practical as it leaves the team's order intact. The DHC glitch may be more efficient in a lot of situations to fit this goal, but I found it interesting that this team could do it without the ability to DHC glitch. The combos in this video are certainly not the most impressive, but with the way it's organized I hope it would be useful for more practical purposes.

Sven chats about PC Super Street Fighter 4 AE net code, GGPO for Street Fighter 3 OE

Sven chats about PC Super Street Fighter 4 AE net code, GGPO for Street Fighter 3 OE Capcom's Christian Svensson dug a little deeper with fans wanting to know more about the inner workings of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition's net code on the PC and how GGPO will be implemented for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition.

A few other subjects are covered as well. Here's the straight line from the Unity Boards.

Have you improved the net code for the PC release of SSF4 AE? — Jin

Svensson: I believe the netcode is largely the same. There's some extra care around the match making and a few tweaks to match people with appropriate benchmark machines but not wildly different from the console.

Also, more people have their PCs connected via wired connections via wireless than would be the case on consoles, which can often improve latencies 20 - 30ms by itself in addition to fewer dropped packets (which can really muck up your experience), all other things being equal.

I have a bunch of issues with GGPO, like:

Connecting - Sometimes its the hardest thing to connect to people and MANY people complain about this problem.


Svensson: Uses PSN and XBLA matching servers... not applicable.

Lag - the last build of PC GGPO wasn't that bad on the lag end of things - You could be 210 ping and still have near lagless gameplay. The latest build of PC GGPO does this very stupid thing to a fighting game of all games, it uses FRAME skipping on anyone over 80 ping which is gonna cause input lag or frame lagging/skipping to the point where its not even playable cause you can't air parry or smartly react to anything.

Svensson: The entire technology is built around game state rewind and intelligent frame skipping. That's what it's all about. That said, without access to source, there's only so much that can be done under emulation.
