Street Fighter 3: New Generation/Glossary
Frame data definitions
How many frames a move remains active (can hurt opponents) for. Consecutive sets of active frames on a multi-hit move are separated by an asterisk (ex: 3*5). If there is a gap between sets of active frames, the gap is denoted by a number in parentheses (ex: 2(4)2)
Attack level is L for low attacks (must be blocked crouching), H is for High attacks (which can be blocked high or low) and M for overhead (must be blocked standing). T is for throw attacks (which cannot be blocked).
Available cancel options.
- "ch": Chain cancel (into itself or another light attack), refer to description for options.
- "self": Self-only chain cancel. Much more restrictive than a standard chain cancel.
- "tc": Target combo, refer to description for options. Successive attacks in a target combo may warrant their own move entry.
- "dash": Grounded dashes.
- "sj": Super jump.
- "sp": Special move.
- "su": Super Art.
Attack damage on hit in life points. Notation may denote multi-hit or "sweet spot" damage values on certain frames.
These are frame advantage values when the attack hits or is blocked. If the number is positive, then the move will end before the defender can act again. If the number is negative, the defender will be able to act before the attacker and maybe even punish. D refers to knockdown on hit.
"Cr. Hit" is an additional frame advantage value denoting if the advantage on hit changes when the defender is being hit while crouching.
Almost all normal attacks can be canceled into a special or a multi-button command within three frames of startup. During that time, some attacks will shift position forward or backward and affect the reach of the special or command accordingly. This is denoted in pixels of range. There are a handful of moves in the game that can be kara-canceled after this initial window and will be denoted as a late kara-cancel.
A combo that is performed by inputting the second move after the first move has completely recovered (as opposed to cancelling the first move's animation). In 3S, the final frame of a move's hitstun allows a character to block a normal or special move, as well as some projectile supers. Therefore, an attack's frame advantage must be 2 frames greater than the followup move's startup in order to link.
This field will show a value of A if the attack can be parried standing or crouching, H if it must be parried standing or L if it must be parried crouching.
How many frames it takes for a move to finish after it's been active.
How many frames it takes before the move becomes 'active' or has a hitbox. 3S uses classic startup notation, which does not include the first active frame. A move with 3 startup becomes active on frame 4.
Amount of stun added to the opponent's stun bar on hit.
Range in pixels from the center of the character to the center of the opponent which allows a grab to connect.
