KOFXIII: Using Shortcuts for RDP Option Select – Examples with Claw Iori and Yuri
AtmaDP sent us a very interesting, and useful defensive option select utilizing the alternative motion for the dragon punch motion in KOFXIII (hcb,f or 632146) but backwards (412364). Here are the notes AtmaDP provided explaining the option select:
“Shortcut method is used to avoid getting QCB moves if they happen to land in front.
This RDP OS is so that you block one direction and DP the other. You can achieve this because of the button hold trick works for specials but not normals, meaning a special can come out when a normal can’t. Normally this RDP OS is performed with Back then QCB+Button. DP motion takes priority over QCF in this case allowing for it to work whilst blocking if they hit in front but doesn’t work for characters with a QCB move as if they hit in front the QCB move comes out so you use the shortcut method!”
Try it out for yourself and see if it works for you!
