Super Fireball Battle – Deleted Scenes and Extended Cuts

February 11th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

As a long-overdue gift to everyone for helping me reach over 5000 u2b subscribers (and close to 100 twitter followers!), here’s an exclusive look at nearly every source clip that i prepared for last year’s massive sh/f Super Fireball Battle collaboration. Most of them were either unused or trimmed to suit the tempo of the composition. Now you can watch them in full for the first time, without any legitimate editing skills getting in the way.

As a matter of fact, i wasn’t planning on releasing any of these clips, but this milestone caught me by surprise. By the time i noticed how close i was to 5000 subs, there wasn’t enough time to get anything ready – especially since i was already falling behind on SF4 TACV episodes.

Hopefully this small token of gratitude will suffice. Thank you all!

    By the way, the full official names of the background tracks are “Esaka Forever (Kyo Kusanagi)” and “Rhythmic Hallucination” – both from the King of Fighters ’97 original soundtrack. Always wanted to use those two in a video.

    (Also i’m currently at 5825 subs – which means i’m hella late with releasing this video, but at least i got it done before 6k!)

    i already commented on the youtube page, but i forgot one thing:

    what’s going on with Terry vs. Toho? I can see there’s something wrong, as there’s this throw-tech-reversal-bug-looking slowdown going on, but I dunno what it is. thanks

    P-Todo parries the first hit of K-Terry’s lvl3 Buster Wolf, which leads into the fireball-looking blast. Except it turns out that blast is a physical attack, which can trigger Todo’s lvl3 counter super. The slowdown only happens because there’s a lot of 3D effects all over the screen: the background, the car, the blast, and those superfreeze rays.

    And to answer your u2b question, Nakoruru’s lvl3 bird super is simply an extremely fast-moving 5-hit projectile. It collides with Athena’s 3-hit lvl2 super and 2-hit lvl1 super. Except the bird doesn’t stop even if you nullify all of its hits, so it just passes harmlessly through Athena.

    Thanks for bringing the question here btw. I don’t really like writing up long explanations on u2b.

    Ahh, OK, it looked like either a) the bird flies wildly out of control off screen or b) accelerates. Must have just been the contrast after superfreeze.

    I figure you prefer stuff here on the site, but I also like having it so other people can read it; people who might not normally be interested in such things (though I don’t know how many people are concerned about Nakoruru’s bird’s velocity.)

    I’ll post future questions here anyway, since my comments seem to get lost on YouTube. I’ve asked a few authors (good people) questions and they haven’t responded; I hope it’s just that they don’t want to bother sorting through all the comments.

    Yeah i don’t think anyone likes writing lengthy transcript-style posts on u2b. You never know which notation it’ll consider spam, and you have virtually no control over formatting.

    Part of it is also managing which comments stay on top. Sometimes people ask questions about my future plans or tool-assistance or whatever, and i hesitate to knock those down for singular questions.

    Anyway Nakoruru’s bird super is by far the fastest projectile in the game. It looks weird here mainly because it pauses twice to burn through both of Athena’s multi-hit fireballs.

    Just a quick look at some numbers:

    SFB Deleted and Extended Scenes
    3500 views: 147 likes, 1 dislike, 24 comments, 91 favorites

    SF4 Biweekly TACV 13: Blanka / E.Honda (last one posted on all news sites)
    70000 views: 181 likes, 8 dislikes, 127 comments, 139 favorites

    Of course the Blanka/Honda video has way more views because that was before all the drama went down. Plus i disabled embedding for this particular video because i intended it to be a gift to subscribers. But if we take those views and extrapolate to 70k, here’s the result:

    SFB Deleted and Extended Scenes (projected)
    70000 views: 2960 likes/dislikes, 480 comments, 1820 favorites

    Of course the real-world results won’t be quite as high, but still, you see the point i was making all throughout this discussion about embedding. It’s pretty sad that i got almost the same participation stats from a non-embedded 3500-view video as i got from an embedded 70000-view video.
