Tutorial: That damn Batarang Combo

#1 Posted by bunnymud (765 posts) -

I mashing the living hell out of X, X, <- ->+Y but it isn't registering as pulling the move off. Using a controller since I has no stick.

For some MKish moves if you pause briefly between the back and forward presses it works better; though doing it as fast as possible seems to work as well.

Never mind. Took a shot and had a smoke. Pulled it off.

@bunnymud: Here's a much more ridiculous tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIGsD6YPjv4 starting at 7:30

I'm really feeling the shortcomings of the 360 D-pad with this game. For some reason, B+F moves don't register very reliably. It's weird, because I didn't have this problem in MK9.

Oh shit thought I was the only one, kept on doing it and I feel like I did it right. Had two hits and batarang, but the batarang would not hit. Was thinking I needed to do it against the end of the arena so he'd bounce off or something no dice. This actually made me stop doing the tutorial and jump into online mode.

I remember running into a similar problem with a Johnny Cage combo in MK9. It took hella tries, but eventually it registered

Gah, I still can't do this! Some of the moves are frustrating on the controller! What's the secret to doing some of these combos?

Don't button spam, you have to input it fast and accurately with the correct number of button presses.

For a move, lets say, --> + X, A when do I hit 'A'? Seems like A never registers when I do the --> + X.

@hulksmash865: This is my first fighting game in a long time, so take whatever I say with a grain of salt. I believe in the combo commands, a comma indicates a new input (i.e. not combined with the previous button). The plus sign means that the two inputs are to be done together.

So here, you want to hit forward and X together, release them, and then hit A.

I think.
