Holiday Special: SF? Ryu Exhibition (HD Edition)
Merry Christmas! Here’s hoping everyone has a safe, warm, and fun holiday season.
I was planning to have this uploaded overnight, but technology rocked me. Exporting the uncompressed file took an hour and a half, the encoding process took ten and a half hours, uploading took two and a half hours, and u2b processing took another hour. Hopefully it was worth the wait though.
This is the Ryu combo video shown at Evolution 2009 and OzHadou Nationals 8 earlier in the year. I’ve re-encoded it in high definition quality for higher resolution playback, but more importantly for higher framerate. For a complete three-part transcript explaining each combo, please check here, here, and here.
In case anyone’s curious, here’s the list of minor changes made to this version:
- raised volume of MvC2 clip by one notch
- rerecorded STHDR clip in Versus Mode
- added “Denjin Hadoken” sound byte to credits sequence
- found a cleaner way to deinterlace outro screenshot
And in case anyone wants it, here’s the unedited source of the above Gem Fighter picture:
GF Chun whiffs B+S as Hsien-Ko whiffs D+K nearly full screen away, with M.Bison sledding in the background. The “Happy Holidays!!!” letters were taken from the game’s score ranking screen and rotated at an angle.
