1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I use Kazuya much more than jin, the principle is the same though. Try to do it as though you are pressing right-punch before you do the d,d/f. Try with Kazuya first ... his ewgf is easier as it is only f,d/f not f,d,d/f. Timing is the key here, not how quickly you can pull off the motion.

    I use Kaz as my main character as well, but I switched temporarily to DJ so I can get a more precise movement for EWGF. This is because I know you can kind of fudge the EWGF and get away with it on Kazuya because of the notation you said, f, n, d/f.

    I'm certainly getting better though. It's weird because my problem isn't getting the WGF to be electric. If I was comparing WGF vs. EWGF I'd be probably 95% EWGF. My problem is something to do with the F, N, D (d/f for Kaz' mist step), because I end up getting d/f+2 a lot instead of WGF/EWGF. Not such a big deal for Kaz because the gut punch is fairly fast but DJ's d/f+2 is like 14 frames or something and very punishable. Especially bad vs. the guy who plays LAW over here and doesn't stop attacking with his way-too-safe moves.

    Do you control the joystick and push it all the way as you go from F to N to D (almost a mini circle motion), or do you tap it F, let it retract to N, then push D?

    Part of my problem is also that the arcade I usually play on has a Street Fighter-style stick with 8-corners and a really big distance between N and F, compared to the Hori stick I play with at home. I'd say I get EWGF about 90% of attempts with the Hori, and maybe 60% with the SF-style.

    Thanks for responding btw, I knew there'd be at least one person who knows what I'm talking about [​IMG]

    At uni they have the small sticks, which are pretty fast; so generally i tap F, it retracts to N (very quickly) then follow through with d/f for Kaz or d,d/f for jin/hei.

    If you are getting d/f+2 alot you probably aren't getting the joystick low enough get the full 'd' part of the input .... i find i can't ewgf as well with jin/hei as i can with kaz (it could possibly be the shitty sticks on the machine i use) as it takes a touch longer to 'slide' the stick around from d to d/f than it does to just tap d/f.


    If I spent as much money on clothes or as much time in lectures as i did on tekken, i think i would be much, much better off. But i'm one of the best at uni, and i intend to keep it that way [​IMG]

    I downloaded an emulator and this game (NES version); it isn't like the movie though, it's a little different to the arcade version. I wanted to fight in that dojo where the people clap, like in bloodsport. Instead you fight in a desert, with a guy standing on cactus.

    If I recall correctly, the fights occured in several different venues.

    I tap f, release to N, push d and start pressing right-punch, so that the right-punch button registers about the same time as when I reach d/f. The f, N bit doesn't really matter though - the key is the d~d/f+2.

    Having said that, I can only do EWGFs reasonably consistently when on the right side of the screen, i.e. when the joystick motion is all in the wrist. Probably why I'm not really much of a Mishima player. [​IMG]

    My friend is constantly telling me (in a Japanese accent), "I do not recommend you to use Misima or Jin. Since you are new, I recommend you to use 8-frame jabber like Bryan or Law."

    I've completely ignored his advice and been using Asuka, Kazuya, Jin, and other 10-frame jabbers. I don't want to use Bryan, Christie, Law, Steve, whatever, because they're cheap asses with too good of frame data, too many safe moves (Law 1,2,4 after b+2,3,4 is so lame, always interrupts my jabs, Christe b+3,3 is the cheapest move in the game I tell ya!, Bryan's juggles are way too easy to do, especially since all you need is a sweep to start, and Steve is just too good all around).

    I prefer Jin's style of Karate over Kaz, but I still play Kaz mostly because I think EWGF is the coolest move in the game. Especially cool with "DORYA!"

    I think the best at my school is this filipino kid with glasses who comes in every once in awhile. I'm no where near the best, but at least I'm learning to play on difficult characters. You can always tell teh really good players because they have a great defense, get out of throws, block Bryan and Law's sweeps, etc.

    The really good players are the ones who manage to low parry everything! [​IMG]

    I use Hwoarang and Lee; I'm better with Lee, but I find playing with him a bit boring. I think his Acid Storm is the coolest move in the game though. [​IMG]

    And I hate Steve. Friend of mine uses him and I basically get battered every time...
