Literally years in the making. Joo’s MvC2 DVD is finally released. For those that don’t know, the first ever OzHadou tournament was for MvC2 and to this day still holds a special place in my (gaming) heart.
The DVD is a whooping SEVEN GIGABYTES so I don’t expect everyone to be downloading it (unless you’re on AAPT) but I found the history part to be very informative not only about programmable pads but also the amount of time and dedication put towards each combo (check out the excel spreadsheets!). Magnetro also includes an article by Maj at the end of the page about tools-assistance which goes into the debate between tools-assisted and manual-performed combos.
This reminds me of the MvC2 videos our very own eks (formerly eKiN) and ShadyK released some years ago. These were all done by hand back then as well so just think the amount of time spent trying to get just one combo right! Unfortunately I can only find one (of two videos) on youtube but I might go and upload the other one later!
