Re: VOOT frame data

I spent three weeks to finish the recovery frame data for all unsafe RT and dash attacks. Some LT attacks also have recoveries but I only marked them in red if their recovery behavior is abnormal. Standing LT attacks can cancel into a walk or dash before full recovery (being able to shoot again with...

Re: Raiden instant lasers

Though some details are only written here, my other thread has more frame data for Raiden. When aiming crouching CW it has a slower 18-frame startup. Although it appears identical to the standing version, walking CW is likewise a different attack and has a slower 18-frame startup, recovering in 39 f...

Specineff advanced techniques

A Japanese player was recently talking about Specineff and taught me a second variation of the Super Cancel technique I didn't know about. This family of glitches relies on the fact that Specineff can cancel any stationary move into his BTCW at any time. The BTCW input can be modified so that it sho...

Re: Instant Low Air Dash Attack - reorient and track 360 degrees

After further testing I have more observations. No matter whether the enemy starts out directly behind or to the side, a Tiniest Hop leaves them equally off center. In other words, Tiniest Hops as well as Instant Low Air Dash Attacks rotate in reverse. The instant you begin the low air dash, the ene...

Re: Instant Low Air Dash Attack - reorient and track 360 degrees

Using my somewhat newer ability to study frame data , I discovered a new technique today. It turns out that the magical reorientation described for Instant Low Air Dash Attacks also applies to empty air dashes, so long as they are canceled instantly! The shortest air dash cancel has the following ti...

Re: Free Gold weekend

Turned out the free gold weekend was fake, it only worked on Xbox One. Bad advertising from Microsoft, maybe there won't be any more free gold weekends for 360 ever again.

Re: Free Gold weekend

I haven't been keeping up with the free Gold weekend alerts, but another one is active from January 31 to February 3, 2019. Besides the usual VOOT, I'm hoping to play some Force, as we haven't played it in a long time. My Index skills haven't really been helping me in VOOT as much as I'd hoped, but ...

Re: Share your VO experience or history

Wow that sounds pretty impressive. I'm not that good with my hands so I don't understand some of the hardware things you talked about, but I'm sure others here do. Too bad arcades everywhere are going out of business. It even affects Japan, as only a few locations there still have VO machines, and t...

Virtual-On in VR with real stereo 3D

mkzGH-sYdcY Neoken said he has figured out how to play VOOM in VR with a real stereo 3D effect. This should require being able to extract z-coordinates either directly from the game code or by intercepting the video card data buffer at an early point. Earlier he said he wasn't able to do this. I do...

Re: PS4 ports announced!

I hope the ports are cheap and come out technically improved or correct. Xbox VOOT graphics are too dark, PS3 VOOM has slightly weak graphics (color subsampled, various 2D images look like jpegs), and PS3/Xbox VOOM have some sound issues (overly loud death explosions compared to the original).

Re: A request regarding A Certain Magical Virtual-On...

There's no Arcade mode in this game. IMO the equivalent is the story mode which takes days unless you skip all the dialogue. Note that story mode forces you to use all VR except Bal-Bados, so it's kind of like Arcade mode with every VR, which is part of the reason it takes so long. One of the missio...

Re: A request regarding A Certain Magical Virtual-On...

Unfortunately, almost no one is still playing this game. There are only 1 or 2 active western players, and I can't speak Japanese well enough to translate beyond guessing. As for dialogue text, there is a ton of it, I think that would be impossible.

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On mechanics

There have been many changes since the demo so it's time for an updated tier list. Although we can actually play the game now, I prefer to keep my ranking mostly based on paper theory. Except for a major mistake on Specineff's placement, I still consider my previous rankings to be correct for the de...

Re: PSN Online IDs

Amazon japan and suruga-ya have used copies for about $30. You'll need to use a proxy service to order from suruga-ya, check every day from 12 pm to 12 am japan time and they have sales on almost every product in revolving categories. If you buy during the sale it will be significantly cheaper. Buy...

Re: VO Music Covers

I knew that, and I owned the PC game before I got into that bidding war. I think there might be extra tracks on the soundtrack and also it is the full length songs (although it might just loop, I can't remember for this particular game). I have good speakers, some hooked up to a TV system, some hook...

Re: PSN Online IDs

It's worth importing and the prices for it have dropped. I don't have a recommendation on the cheapest place to buy from at the moment, maybe I'll look around with that in mind next week. You can check my VO mechanics thread as both a play guide and ranking list. Commander is ranked high. Battler ha...

Not bad. I'm only listening on crappy monitor speakers.

Then a few weeks later I won the same thing on eba...
