Joystick Notation

X-axis functions can be used interchangeably with Y-axis functions and vice versa. X-axis functions cannot be used in conjunction with another X-axis function and vice versa.

In addition to the letter notation, an Unicode arrow notation will be used. The symbols →, ↓, ← will be employed assuming your character is facing right, which is the initial position for the first player when a round starts. Thus, → will denote towards, ↓ denotes down, ← means back and ↑ means up. Finally, the symbols ↙, ↘, ↗ and ↖ will denote the diagonals. Unless stated otherwise, the player on the player 2 side will just reverse the commands left to right for similar results.

Six Button Notation

  • Jab - weak/low punch (also called LP)
  • Strong - medium punch (also called MP)

  • Short - weak/low kick (also called LK)
  • Forward - medium kick (also called MK)
  • Roundhouse (RH) - heavy/high kick (also called HK)

  • cr. - The following move should be performed in the crouched position (held down in the Y-axis). i.e. cr.Fierce, perform a Fierce whilst crouching.
  • nj. - The following move should be performed during a neutral jump (After having held up in the Y-axis). i.e. nj.Fierce, perform a Fierce whilst in a neutral jump.
  • dj. - The following move should be performed during a diagonal jump (After having held up in the Y-axis as well as some direction on the X-axis). i.e. dj.Strong, perform a Strong whilst in a diagonal jump.

Miscellaneous Notation

  • WW = World Warrior
  • CE = Champion Edition
  • HF = Hyper Fighting = SF2T = Street Fighter 2 Turbo
  • SSF2 = Super Street Fighter 2
  • ST = Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo
  • TAP = Boxer's Turn Around Punch (hold 3P or 3K, then release)
  • DP = Dragon Punch = Any Shoryuken-like move
  • Claw = American Vega = Japanese Balrog
  • Boxer = American Balrog = Japanese Bison

Not everyone plays on the American version, and some character names are different in the Japanese version, so to avoid confusion, we should not use the names Vega, Bison, or Balrog.
