KOTAKU'D! - How to stop getting "Timeout" in Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting (XBLA)

I was playing Street Fighter II earlier tonight and I was getting Timeouts, after timeouts after timeouts...

Except this one time, I pressed the "Center Button" (What ever that "X" button is actually called) after it found someone in Quick Match ranked and for the first time in 9-10 timeouts it connected... I tried to quick match afterwards, and got timeouts constantly again...

Then I wondered if I hit the center button, if it would connect again, and sure enough... it did.

So I played 10 games in a row and not once did it timeout... this is how I did it. Maybe this works for everyone, but it seems to work for me.

So click on quick match, and when it finds a person and starts the 5 sec timer, click the center button. Then hit the center button again when the character select screen pops up. Easy as pie, and I did it 10 times in a row without getting a timeout.

Hope it works for you. (Since other people are having great success too, I changed the title to take out "Possible")

an easyer remedy is to just create a game. Created games will never net you a drop guaranteed.

I've played over 50 matches and have never had a time out. However, I could've sworn one time this fool was using standy on me. Everything was in super slow mo but the fool was still able to do all his moves when I was the one hosting?!?

But if we didn't use this trick, we'd never get in to play your created games. :)

If this solution does work every time (as it seems to be) I'd certainly hope a patch is on the way. I don't see how it couldn't be fixed if this is all you need to do.

Thanks for the info, I will try this tonight.

Didn't work every time for me, however it did allow me to connect to a few people that I previously couldn't.

^^ I don't know. I made a mention of it in the comments there.

Either that, or Mook staged a hostile takeover and Cheapy is in some dark basement right now, chained to a water pipe.

just a note: I think the center X button is actually called the "Guide" button, though it really dosn't matter.

It's indeed called the "Xbox Guide" Button.

i think it's placebo...it's just that the game lets multiple people connect to one guy at a time. instead of closing the door after one person connects, it shuts people out after they connect.

It seems to me that the Kotaku guy meant to write "Cheapassgamer's MookyJooky" and his brain went blargh die.
