gah, the demo is the PSN one. Local only. What a godawful waste of a 200mb download.

So from what I've read the online is fine? Dealbreaker on this game

Anyone else dissapointed that the people getting it on PSN gotta wait 2 more weeks? I was just gonna buy it on xbox but dont own an arcade stick (prefer the PS controller anyway) and my one buddy only owns PS3. Damn, all this talk of people playing is driving me nuts. About to just double dip and get it for both systems but being too much of a CAG to do it.

So DL'd and started playing last night (I suck!) and teh funnies happened.

I was Jill Valentine and I summoned a Zombie. Then I summoned a Raven, which flew down and hit the zombie in the back of the head, knocking it over. But the zombie fell forward, right at the feet of my opponent and it quickly grabbed their legs and started munching.

It's like a retarded combo!

online is good...I had 1 laggy ranked match last night. played 20games. I actually faught him twice, the second time it was smooth so I dunno what the deal w/ that 1 game. :whee: best game to compare it to is sf2hdr since it probably uses the same netcode.

I noticed in player match rooms if you pick low tier typically other players will pick the same type of characters. But if u go all santhrax(storm, sent, capcom) they will pull out higher tier characters as well. so im definitely digging online. ranked obviously u wanna pick the best characters to win. quarter rooms are great fun.

15 secs is for beating the entire team, not just one person. I got it just fine. Just do Magneto's Down+Y attack.

And yes, you can't continue for the "team" achievements.

What arcade sticks is everybody using? I've perused the Arcade stick thread, and it seems I want a HAPP stick for MVC2, but I'm not particularly sure where I would get one for a decent price.

If HAPP sticks aren't actually available for retail (i.e. you need to mod it in), what other sticks have a nice hard spring to the stick thats good for MvC2?

I ask here instead of the stick thread because, well, The only fighting game I'm really playing at the moment is MVC2 so I figured I'd ask those who are playing it :roll:

Unfortunately there really isn't any retail option for a HAPP-style stick. There are some independent companies like Arcade In A Box that will make them though. So you could go for something like this: http://aiabstore.com...12&productId=12 It costs more than a T.E. but if you are dead-set on using HAPP style controls (which I can understand!) then it's one of your best bets.

Your only other option would be to contact a custom stick builder or order a bunch of parts yourself! Believe me though, I feel your pain, I put a lot of time and thought (and $$$) into getting a custom U.S.A. style joystick setup for my 360!

If you aren't that committed to HAPP though then you might as well get a T.E. as others have suggested. It seems to be the best out-of-the-box Japanese style joystick out there, and it was designed by a CAG!

tbh I dont care for happs sticks at all. I know they are the favorite amongst mvc2 players but the HappComp stick I had had a crazy spring in it. if u hold left and let go it would bounce and input right. then again i started play mvc2 at a namco arcade which had it in a jap cabinet so I got used to that layout and stick.

It would be awesome for madcatz to create another stick but w/ all the planning and work they put into the sf4 stick I dont see it happening for this game. Also note I do not believe u can swap a happ comp stick into a SF4 TE stick. believe the mounting plate is different and also its way too long.
Edit:
http://i148.photobuc...iku/happ-te.jpg
if u can somehow jam it into the case...it will be practically attached to the bottom of the case

I had a HAPP stick where I managed to get just the right amount of spring in it, so if you gave it a deliberate downward flick it would register an "up" input on the recoil. It was great for teleports in Mortal Kombat and I imagine it would have been handy for super-jumps in the Vs games as well.

That was on my semi-retired "backup" stick though (X-arcade, I didn't know better!). I'd love to get a similar springiness on my new stick... I'm afraid of getting it TOO springy though cuz I'd hate to be triggering things by accident (just like you were talking about)!

same boat man. I had an xarcade because i was young and didn't know better. Did swap the parts out for all happ comp. I would like to have a stick thats somewhere inbetween happ and sanwa. happ u gotta put a little arm into it, sanwa I like the percision but I beat the shit of the thing and fear for its life.

Did anyone start up a MVC2 game night for cags? I would love to play some of you guys just casual fun like Team Jill, Stryder, Doom.

You might be able to get it against a second controller on your 360, if it just says multiplayer and not online multiplayer or Ranked Match.

I played for an hour with sean last night...and maybe won one match. :lol:

Button mashing actually worked okay for the characters I'd never used before, although my opponents never had much trouble taking me down in those matches.

Servbot vs. Servbot was a LOT of fun. :D

Also wanted to add that this is the only fighting game in which I don't get mad or frustrated after losing.


Same here. Maybe it's because I'm going in expecting to lose.

So DL'd and started playing last night (I suck!) and teh funnies happened.

I was Jill Valentine and I summoned a Zombie. Then I summoned a Raven, which flew down and hit the zombie in the back of the head, knocking it over. But the zombie fell forward, right at the feet of my opponent and it quickly grabbed their legs and started munching.

It's like a retarded combo!


I need to give that one a shot. That sounds like the dumbest combo ever...but it worked.

Looking to play some people tonight, hopefully in about an hour or so.

I'll incentivize - you WILL win against me. Sure, I'll flail around like a dork and attempt to play, but you WILL win.

So hit me up if anyone is lookin' to throw down.


You're on, Strell. I'm going to do my best to out-lose you.

They WILL, but for Marvel vs Capcom 3 using the SF4 engine.

or Marvel vs Capcom 2 HD Remix using the, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Engine which was specifically designed to be compatible with Marvel vs Capcom 2, note how the power moves, and character switching is just like MvC2 .




I know it's wishful thinking but I do hope that this game makes a good chunk of change and we end up seeing a next gen MvC3

I hope they don't make another MvsC. 2 is enough. im glad that they made a tasunko vs. capcom instead if using the same marvel characters over and over again. time to venture into different territory.

The problem in TvC is that looping is a huge problem in that game. I have yet to come across any other fighter that has had such a large looping problem. Hope they fix it in the NA release but I doubt it.

That's what I'm using. It totally helps a ton, but a joystick might be better. It still cramps up your hands a bit after an hour or so YMMV on that ofcourse.

I've been switching back and forth, but I just get a better response with the d-pad. I havent had much problem with other fighting games, but MvC2 has shown me that I need a controller that can get me a better response. I might pick one up later today on Amazon, unless someone else knows of a cheaper option ;)
