Hi guys ,ive been keeping track of exactly where i have to stand to land an aaHP and make sure it connects , vs JK's from all different chars vs all .

I have only started it recently so its not complete yet .Probably most of u guys know this already but its tricky to memorize i if u like to play with more then just a few chars.

Feel free to add more data.

base starting point is standard sweep distance

Female ninja vs:

Female ninja
JK = small step back

Jax
JK = small step back

Male ninja
JK = middle

Night wolf
JK = middle or small step forward

U-Sub
JK = step forward


Kabal vs:

Female ninja
JK = half a step back or step forward

I never left :)

Those make an excellent information. If it was available when I started UMK it would make my learning a lot easier, but after collecting a lot of experience playing I do it properly without thinking. That also makes a problem for me to explain it to a recently hooked friend so I'll be sure to tell him to read this :D

Excellent stuff and helpful info. I was never into the theory part of the game and always relied on feeling but now the (soap bar in my mouth) in me is about to say something really stupid....I kind of understand what you mean but I don't udnerstand it at all. Can you make a short video showing some examples of step in, small step back etc......I really want to master the aahp concept but I dont have enough knowledge of hitboxes and collusion.

Thanks guys , i appreciate the feedback.

About the aaHP's , these positions are relative compared to each other so , if u find one right spot for one char vs one char , from there u can interpolate the rest.

The thing that im working on atm is, that with these listed positions u are almost garantueed to hit the aaHP once . And after a bit of practice it becomes very easy . But at first i thought aaHPHP,JK wasnt possible vs all JK's. But it seems after analyzing mega endurances (that they're TAS'ed isn't relevant here) that it is possible almost on any char even in MKT , which has ofc smaller hitboxes. Except for maybe NW and kano's JK i think they can all be aaHPHP,JK'ed in theory ,if u anticipate quick enough and run burst in as close as possible hitting almost the body instead of legs.

I've managed to do it multiple times vs even female ninjas and the like , and ofc the timing is a bit harder , but single aaHP will work vs anyone almost garantueed.
It seems like the timing for aaHPHP,JK vs JK's ( vs a JP is too easy) is same for all chars against all and a few cant be aaHPHP,JK vs incoming JK ,at all therefore.

About the video part it wouldnt be much of a problem to record it , but i have no idea what software to use and the built in mame one doesnst work right , (screen is all blurred and wrongly shaped) , any suggestions on a light-weight recording app ?
EDIT : and editing software ?

specs : XP , 2.4 GHZ duo core , 2 gig ram , 260 GTX

I capture easily with fraps, the results are awesome and the files you get are super big, but you can always shrink them with the easiest of the softwares, like windows movie maker, tell me if you need more help on this
