Eternal Fighter Zero/Controls
Directional command notation is as follows:
.- up (u) | up+back (ub) - 7 8 9 - up+forward (uf) back (b) - 4 6 - forward (f) down+back (db) - 1 2 3 - down+foward (df) | `- down (d)
Note: These numbers can be easily referenced by looking at your keyboard "numpad". Think of it as a joystick/controller that is facing to the right. "5" is used to signify "neutral".
A - Light Attack
B - Medium Attack
C - Strong Attack
S - Special (not used by every character)
If you still feel confused, here are some examples to get you used to numeric notation:
"66" means tap forward twice. "44" means tap backward twice.
"236A" means press down, down-forward, forward, then A. This is a common special move that many characters have. You may also know this command as a quarter circle forward or a "hadoken motion"
"623A" means press forward, down, down-forward, and then A. This is commonly known as a dp or "dragon punch" motion.
j. - The following move should be performed in the "midair" position (i.e. "j.236A" means to perform "236A" whilst in the air).
(c) - Refers to the close version of the preceding move (i.e. "B(c)" refers to the B attack when in close range).
(f) - Refers to the far version of the preceding move (i.e. "B(f)" refers to the B attack when far away).
On The Ground
- makes you walk toward where you are facing
- makes you walk away from where you are facing
- forward dash
- forward ground dashes vary from character to character, some characters leap forward giving their next attacks air hit property or makes them use an air attack, some run forward at a quick and constant pace, while others will quickly move a set distance forward and return to a neutral position.
- back dash
- backward ground dashes also vary from character to character. some are reverse leaps, others are quick back steps.
- 8 makes you jump straight up
- 7 makes you jump back and up
- 9 makes you jump forward and up
- input while in the air
- does a double-jump or air-jump, when used with a normal jump, can bring you to higher altitudes.
- most aerial attacks can be canceled with an air-jump, allowing you to continue a combo/juggle further.
- 7/8/9 makes you go back and up /straight up /forward and up, respectively
In The Air
- air dash /forward air dash
- forward air dashes are done while in the air, air dashes vary from character to character, some faster than others, others with special trajectories (ex: nayuki asleep and makoto), and some with special properties (ex: nayuki asleep 8-9 jam dash has attack properties).
- air dashes can be used to cancel aerial attacks in place of or after an air-jump.
- air dashes should be used carefully. If the opponent is air throw happy, it can be very easy to get air thrown out of them.
- air back dash /backward air dash
- back air dashes are exactly like air dashes, only going in the opposite direction, and sometimes having different animations.
