Street Fighter X Tekken stories

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 X DLC rumor debunked, responses to SFxT & Cross Assault criticism, PC stuff

There's been a rumor about a DLC update to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that's been floating around, which both Christian Svensson and Seth Killian recently debunked. Svensson also wades into some of the criticism Capcom received recently for on disc DLC for Street Fighter X Tekken and some of the things that happened during Cross Assault.

Plus, Christian comments on who the PC developer for Street Fighter X Tekken is, why they're using Game for Windows Live and more stuff. Hit the jump for everything.

Is this picture showing new DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with 8 new characters coming legit?

Svensson: Just got back from GDC so I'll make this short: that is completely fake.

Seth Killian: Sorry guys, <3 Photoshop, but no UMVC3x coming from Capcom.

Every new announcement you make, or every new bit of leaked information that comes out has more and more people falling out of good faith with the company. What are you planning to do to fix this disastrous situation with Street Fighter X Tekken? — Mavrickindigo

Svensson: This feels like a loaded question but I'll bite.

We're going to continue to make games and offer services and content that people want.

Eurogamer compares the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Street Fighter X Tekken in terms of video quality, framerate and more

Eurogamer compares the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Street Fighter X Tekken in terms of video quality, framerate and more Eurogamer posted a very extensive article where they talk about the differences between the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Street Fighter X Tekken.

If you are interested in details such as anti-aliasing and how the current generation of consoles handles controller inputs during crazy moments such as Scramble Mode take a look at the story at the link which also includes videos. A clip of the story is below for your perusal.

On the Xbox 360, Street Fighter x Tekken maintains a smooth 60FPS update throughout, outside of dropping a few single frames on occasion (usually accompanied by a sole torn frame). The frequency of these blips increases in scramble mode, where all four characters are permanently on-screen. However, we still get the perception of a faultless 60FPS presentation, with only the digital precision of frame-rate analysis telling us anything different - the odd dropped frame here and there simply can't be discerned by the human eye: the action is fluid and the controller response remains very crisp.

Perhaps top-tier players with god-like reflexes might notice the occasional dropped frame, but it's going to be a complete non-issue for the vast majority of players.

The only time we see a visible deviation in fluidity occurs when ending the round with a super move. Here, on the odd occasion, the frame-rate briefly gets chopped down by half for a few seconds as the rendering load increases and the engine switches to a v-synced 30FPS update (with some some mild tearing when the change occurs). Thankfully, as the player has no control over events when this happens, this has no impact on gameplay at all. The fact that this occurs mostly in scenes with very little movement means that the visible effects of the halved frame-rate are also significantly reduced.

Information regarding Street Fighter X Tekken for the PlayStation Vita coming in April

Andriasang reported that Street Fighter X Tekken assistant producer Ayano released a new video talking about when to expect news for the Vita version of the game. He says to wait for April, which is also the time Ono said to wait for in regards to news about the DLC characters.

He says the version is in development so he can't show the game screen but he does demonstrate the touch controls in a perfect imitation of your average online player. This video was uploaded the day after the massive leak of characters, costumes and gems onto the internet so it's likely this trailer was actually shot before that time.

The news seems to all point to Captivate in April.

Desk's 101- Hit 'God Like' Combo in Street Fighter X Tekken

Desk has released a video today with a legitimate 99+ hit combo without the use of infinite meter.

This is the first intance of a non-scramble mode, non-infinite meter 99+ hit combo in SFxT that I'm aware of. It might look straight forward but it took a ton of experimenting and trial & error. For example, if chun does anything before the first, raw SBK in the first combo, it won't be possible to build the 4th bar for the 4th tag and get the combo to 99 hits. Also, when hitting 2 characters at the same time in the corner, push back is doubled, so no standard combos will work. That's why everything here takes place mid-screen.

Street Fighter X Tekken dev blog: Fixing online sound issue will create latency, trying to find balance - updates coming

Street Fighter X Tekken dev blog: Fixing online sound issue will create latency, trying to find balance - updates coming Capcom-Unity posted a translation of a recent developer blog where Capcom addressed the online match sound issue that many users have complained about, it reads:

Hi everyone, this is Ayano.

With Street Fighter X Tekken going on sale today in Japan, I suspect a lot of you out there are busy training up your skills! However, we are aware of the sound issues that occur when playing matches online.

The new netcode implemented in Street Fighter X Tekken allows for up to 4 players to have a smooth online experience, however depending on the connection stability between players, things like “spontaneous match rollback,” “voice effects cutting out,” and “sound effects cutting out” also are occurring. This netcode is written in a completely different way than the Street Fighter IV series netcode, and that is why these problems are occurring.
