hey guys... i tried out Takuma today... i can do combos from lights and do his corner combos... but i can't for the life of me figure out how to do s.C, f+B, b~f+D... if i charge before s.C for too long, then i get b~f+B instead of f+B... and if i don't charge long enough, then after f+B the b~f+D doesn't come out... any help on how to do it?

I always thought you just charge db-f+D AFTER you input f.B, kinda like Robert in XII

Yeah, you input:

C, f+B, [db], f+D.

It's a really tough link, and really goes to show how short the charge times in XIII are.

fine i'll give it another try then... i kept thinking there are some super hidden timing or trick to this... i guess Ralf/Clark's ones work the same way then as well...

if its as hard as blue mary's  ;c;fd ;a;bk ;fd ;b or ;d into  ;dn ;df ;fd ;b or ;d. this link was hard as hell, you need perfect timing otherwise you can forget it. back when i used to play kof daily, i nailed this link 100% of the time. when i tried it a few years ago on emu, i couldnt get the shit down for shits. like 10% of the time or so. if takumas one is as hard as that one, good luck to you. im thinking it is.
In the end, there can only be XIII.

That link is what i'm scared of the most.

I'm for sure maining Takuma but I have a feeling that his combos are gonna be a real pain in the ass to do, but i think he's worth the headache

you guys do know that you can just do  ;db ;c ;fd ;d without using his command normal, way easier. couple years ago when i noticed i couldn't do mary's, i changed the combo to something more practical and easier.

Of course, but his cr. ;c has less range than his cl. ;c, and I think it's slower too. Not sure, though. At any rate, it's a bit harder to follow-up his command grab with cr. ;c.

This brings up a question: Could you use Kyokugen Ko Ou to get in closer, and maybe combo into crouching ;c after the forward dash?

I must add, I'm also kinda suprised how little you see Kyokugrn Ko Ou used by Takuma players. It seems like a great method to link into Crouching a; -> EX Hienshipuukyaku. And also probably easier to use than the Hien-loops, I'd imagine. (But I'd guess they do more stun?)

Random personal thought: Wish we saw more use of Haohshikouken. Especially EX version. But with all the useful things to do with Takuma's meters, I suppose Ranbu and EX Hien/Kyokugen Hoken outrank it.

you know what? i'm going to try that next time... s.C, f+B, qcf+D, cr.A, b~f+BD... or after command throw s.C, qcf+D, cr.A, b~f+BD... although i would really like to get the s.C, f+B, b~f+D timing down as well...

well problem with that is you do spend a bar for the move.

I just really hope these combos aren't too much of a pain to do.
