The most noobish noob thread ever..

No seriously guys, do an old YOT girl a favour and help me out. I've been a yoshi fan for almost 2 and a half years now and I really wanna get good. I still don't have tekken 6 but it's on my Christmas list and my gf has said she might treat me to it!!!!

So I really wanna learn to play this damned game. Please keep in mind that prior to Tekken I had never played a fighting game (besides a few rounds of Soul Calibur when I was 14) and my gaming history was all platforms and puzzel games. So try to be gentle with me.

My hope is that you will all be kind enough to answer my silly noob questions and help me to become a better yoshi player. Keep in mind that I currently only have DR online.

So noob question number one...

What do you guys think is easiest for controlling Tekken... the d-pad, or the analogue stick. You see, I often try to input one thing, and yoshi does something completely different. I have tiny skiny little hands, so it's not chubby fingers that cause it. Currently, I use the D-pad.

Thanks in advance.

I'd say the D-pad. With the D-pad you can input your commands a bit more precise than the analog stick, but it's all in personal taste really. (Arcade stick beats all though)
If you're having trouble with the outcome of your input, then try putting on that command input history in training mode to see what the problem is while inputting your commands. You can find out you might be holding down backwards or something else while you shouldn't do it.

Learning to play Tekken is like trying to spell in another language from finger memory. There's a grammar code and way things are to be done. lmao d+1+4 spells death. (I bet that's wrong) *inserts more funny comparisons* I have not played for more than 7 months??? My tv, console and controller has dust. I've seriously forgotten everything that is basic.

Pad is best for you. Learning to play stick is just for people who wanna play other people in arcade. Or for those who wanna impress other peoples by showing them how hard they can smash the buttons and slam the stick in a tournament. Eventually the stick will break, they may even get out a repair kit and show others: 'Look at me! I'm also a repair guy!' 8) LOL

Just try pressing all the buttons and see what they do. Square is 1, triangle is two (These are basically left and right punch.) Same goes for 3 X and 4 is circle, this is left and right kick. Now, mix em up and see what you can get. :D Watch his move list and practice them, but you can worry about doing combos later.

You can even set the shoulder buttons in controller settings for flash, a throw and dragonfly.

May i also add i think it's best to practised on DR first. T6 has a lot of busy movement and distractions in the background. :)

Well.. maybe i didn't forget everything, my fingers play for me. And it feels very weird like everything is backwards. I'm playing DR now, I do have T6, but am more fond of DR. :P

Aww.. thanks to both of you. I didn't know I could actually see what I'd input. That is a great tip. I'm thinking of spending a few weeks where I play with a different character each evening and just try to get a feel for them.. Then come back to yoshi. I have never played with another character so I don't really have much of an appreciation of their moves, strengths, weaknesses. Not that one evening will teach me much, but it might help. Or will my time be wasted?

Right, I decided just to battle different characters all the time in practice mode to get an idea of their moves and stuff. Might help.

Next noob question:..

Due to my hopeless input skills, I often end up with my back turned for random reasons seemingly out of my control. Besides just doing a backflip which, of course, leaves me STILL in BT, what other moves are good from this position?

crouching medium kick and the whole back turned shenanigan play-style (excecuting normal moves with your back turned [not recommended for beginners]) for tekken 5. (Maybe more, but it's been a while since I last played t5dr)

Okay... trying that now.. (the kick.. not the other stuff). I'm already noticing an improvement in my playing. Of course, I am not expecting to be fantabulous, but I finally seem to be picking things up. Well, more than 2 years ago when I first tried to learn to play.

well, if you ever need a sparring partner, just contact me. I'll be there for ya ( with or without headset if you want)

Oh yeah.. headset. ^^ Now that I am feeling so brave about technology, I might actually try it out! Might take me a little while to find it of course.

I've actually never played online by myself so you'll have to be patient while a make goofy mistakes. My ex boyfriend always did all the hard stuff for me and just passed me the control when it was ready (and I only ever played Sumsamurai and Fastlegs anyway ^^).

Been playing for about 2 hours now and the input isn't working again. Was fine at first but now such simple moves won't work. I really think it could be my pad actually. I know a bad workman-woman (hehe) blames her tools but I really can't explain it. Even U+3+4 won't work anymore (did I write that right? Do you know what I meant? It's guillotine crow kick I think). Kinda lame move but I needed it to stamp on rodger's head before. It was working EVERY TIME before. Maybe I shift my grip on the pad sometimes. I have a weird way of holding it anyway (only met one other person who plays this way, with first and second fingers only of the right hand but the thumb of the left ^^).

Oh one last thing, I am really, really annoying on DR because I lose every battle so it is always my turn to pick the stage and I ALWAYS pick Lily's with the cute love-heart balloons and the giant teddies! It's just my way of wearing down my opponent. It slowly drives them to the brink of sanity and I might just be able to sneak a flukey win!!! Also, no walls there so I can't be abused horribly. Just normal abuse!

lol jembru... Just keep playing you will get along. D pad is easier to play but like some one said analoge stick is professional. If you want to learn back dash .. There is a small tip. When i used to play T5 i used to stand near grounded oppo and back dash cpu's get up kicks 3 or 4. Its easy to get the feel. Learn combos first standard stuff and try doing u/f+3 from FC its kinda hard for me. : D btw your avatar is nice and you sound funny :p

maybe she should first try to excecute the commands fluently before we start talking about combo's and rising knees, don't you think so as well?

and analog stick is NOT professional. (arcade stick is though)

Too bad for me i think i learnt the hard way. Executing hard commands and learnt smaller ones easy ex i practised jack 6 unblockable spins to learn kings giant swing. Learnt toma hawk and dash neutral at same time. No one to teach. May be its just me :p

I have no idea what you're talking about but doing practice mode and checking the command list is something you always do alone

I think he means learning those things by yourself is damn hard which i would agrre very much with you on

(by tomahawk he meant Iws i guess)

thnx for clearing that out AK ^^

Hehehe lol man ...i tend to confuse every one in real life. Even online. Wow lol me. XD What i mean to say was i learnt complex first moves. Learning solo is hard.i played Tekken 5 for 2 years but never learnt the use of /imp of frames till now. Any how learn Yoshi's top ten moves first. Pls do learn to input ff4 its very important. Does any one have nice combos on bt opponent other than 10 hit combo.
