7/22 patch!

I have nothing clever to say.

Bugfixes!
- Fixed the longstanding bug where sometimes Player 1's inputs would be duplicated as Player 2 on the Training Mode dummy / on the Controller Config screen! Now everyone can use Training Mode normally. :^) (Thanks BlueFeena for helping!)
- Fixed a random crash in super-shadow rendering when Feral Edge collides with Motor Brigade. (Thanks Triblue for sending me crash replays!)

Replay Playback
- Pressing MP while watching a replay will enable the "simple" Attack Data display. Note that it begins when you enable it, so if you enable it during a combo the current-combo-damage values will be incorrect.
- Pressing MK during combat, not round transitions or the pause menu, while watching a replay will toggle 25% slow-motion on/off. (Thanks Liam for reminding me.)

Bug Reporting
- If you have Replays enabled and the game crashes during a fight in any mode where Replays are saved, it will automatically save CRASH_REPLAY.ini and .rnd in the normal replay folder. Renaming those files to a valid replay number and playing it back in Replay Theater SHOULD reliably crash the game again. If it does, send 'em to me somehow!

Quick Match? More like BugFIXED Match!

:^)

General
- Fixed Quick Match not submitting any new wins to the leaderboard ever, which I accidentally broke when I made it support 3/5 sets. (thanks BeizlFreiz!)

While looking at how to fix that bug, I found another one.

(I briefly considered just writing this bugfix as "Fixed a bug with score reporting on PC," but we're Lab Zero and we own our mistakes as well as our successes.)

THE FOLLOWING BUG WAS PC (WIN/MAC/LINUX) ONLY. IT DID NOT AFFECT ANY CONSOLES. Every version has different leaderboard code.
Disclaimer: I may not have written this code, but I did fix it! :^P
[deep breath]
- Fixed...a bug...with PC Quick Match score reporting...that has been present since the very first PC build...where the check for when to report scores to the leaderboard was
if(mWinningPlayer == 0)
instead of the correct
if(mWinningPlayer == myPlayerNumber)
...the end result being that if Player 1 won the game, both players would report a win for themselves. If Player 2 won, neither player would report a win. So the PC leaderboard currently reflects the number of times you played a Quick Match where Player 1 won the game, rather than the number of times you won. Heh?

AGAIN, THIS DID NOT APPLY TO CONSOLES. CONSOLE SCORE REPORTING IS FINE.

The game now correctly reports a win only for the player that won, all the time.

I'm not going to reset the leaderboards, though.
*G1antK1ngTurtlE* can keep the huge pile of bodies, even though some of them are illusory. :^)

went in 1 mach, spamed the same move over and over again with a random person, won the mach and saw how easy it was, then found out online that there are a lot more moves then just backing someone in a conor and hitting them over and over again.


So if you like fighting games then this seems good for you, im not that into games like this but it was on the humble bundle so i have it now i guess, i will never play it again but hey i would recomend it if you like games like mortal combat or street fighter. the only thing is its very easy to spam like i did in my one mach.

I'm normally really against anime girls fighting with questionable wardrobe and sexualized designs...

but for a game to be have such solid mechanics and tutorials while having all of this anime stuff so blatantly without any shame, you kind of have to respect that. this game is also a great gateway to other 2D fighter games

Got this game because I heard you can play the trumpet with one of the DLC characters.

Turns out you can fight people in it, too.

Doot Doot/10 Highly recommend

This game is one of the best if not the best fighting game since a few years.
Its fighting system succeed at being both simple, accessible, and quite deep for the seasoned fighter. Both your spammy little sister and your kof fanatic friend will find what they need to have fun.

Speaking of new player, this game also feature an extensive tutorial and training mode, it will teach anyone how to go from just spamming punch to actually combo in a smart way.

The art style is definitly a strong point of this game, it is beautiful, the animation are both detailled and fluid, the stage are full of life, every character and even background filler npc have is own personality. trully a work of art.

This game is not without default, the story mode is quite monotonous, and finish with one of those unfair and unfun boss. (Honestly, Jinpachi was more fun than Marie). The scenario itself coud definitly be a good story, specially since it know when to joke, and when to be dramatic. But, for most character it is quite empty.

If you like Street Fighter and Marvel Vs. Capcom, this is for sure the game for you.

There's some huge combos you can pull off with tag teams, not a whole lot of characters, but it's more than bearable with the memorable characters, and it even has some cool ♥♥♥ art made by fans.

So, it's not too late to get this damn good 2D fighting game.

Waifu fighter of the century. Not a lot of characters in quantity, but the quality is top notch. Great music and aesthetic. The fighting is rock solid too. Great game for newcomers, awesome tutorial.

It's really easy for fighting games begginers like me to get into this game. The character roster might seem a bit small at first, but every character is truly unique, and the game likes to emphasize that in their respective tutorials (which are very good, too). If the game's on sale, give it a try. It's a fun game to play with friends, especially those who have a similar or slightly higher skill level than yours. I've owned this game for quite some time, and I'm glad to see Lab Zero's continued support paid off, the game really feels different and better than it did before the numerous additions given to it throughout these years. As a side note, I'd reccomend getting a gamepad if you don't have one. Most of my friends who play on a keyboard don't seem to enjoy it as much, I don't think that's just a coincidence.
