either mode.

you could play with remixed music and new sprites, and your opponent could be playing with normal sprites and original music. which is pretty cool I guess.

God I've spent a good 2-3 hours on it already. I play this game far, far too much.

That's why SF is THE game. You just could play it forever, this game is infinite :awe:

Here's the 360 download link for anyone interested. Couldn't find it on the marketplace and the majornelson link doesn't work.

So far diggin the hell out of this. Running on my VGA Naomi cabinet courtesy of the PS3 JVS-Pac. Supports 4:3 monitors and looks absolutely stunning running on the Arcade.

Definately worth $15 and tops Hyper Anniversary as the top SF2 version now.

:lol: It isn't a patch in HSF2. The graphics are v v poor. You can clearly see that a different artist has drawn different frames of animation. Some backgrounds look unfinished (Chun Li).

Nice novelty, but shouldn't be called Super SF2 Turbo.

Now for the important stuff, can it run in 4:3 without borders on the PS3?

Is this the default layout?

no, thats not the default layout, thats the exact same layout as my namco stick, and I have to change it for it to be correct.

I have a problem with americans updating a japanese games art even though I apreciate american art i.e marvel, dc, etc.

When I first put the game on it looked and felt like a homebrew game however after playing it for a while I adjusted and realised it didn't look and feel too bad.

Bingo. That is EXACTLY my problem with this game. Love Japanese games art, hate American art. I've always hated SFHD graphics, ever since the first pics came out. Those characters just look horrible to me.

It's like when you walk in a room which smells bad. At first you notice that and after a while you don't. That doesn't mean the room no longer stinks.

Let's face it guys, had this game been redrawn by the Japanese, it would have looked freaking awesome and not like a f flash game... Who am I kidding, I already know I'll be back to my astro with HSF after a week...

Like Madonna said in the 80's: Japanese DO IT BETTER :awe:

Downloaded it, played it... don't remember it being this hard. :)

Looks nice and it's a good nights entertainment when the friends come round so can't really ask for more than that.

Which mode are you playing? The new remixed mode is supposed to be slightly more forgiving.

BTW I hate that, I've been playing this game for ages, I actually want it to be MORE difficult :awe:

Can still select the old music, but yeah :?

Apparently the new remixed music was a fan collaberation as well. I switched it back pretty damn quick.

Kern, just out of curiosity, how did you manage to get this game for PS3 since you are based in the UK? Is there any workaround? Would like to buy an asian ps3 this weekend but that does not make any sense if i can't have sfhd since day one

You could just buy a US points card off ebay, and the guy would email you a code

some dvd/game sites have them for sale too, you just buy one and then they send you the code, then you redeem it on the psn store and get credit. :)

I was actually game shared mine by a friend, so I got it for free :awe:
