Street Fighter Alpha Anthology Dip Switches:

SFA1

1-01 Sodom
– In the 10 frames with a standing heavy kick attack decision, it is impossible to block in the last 6 frames (can’t go into the blocking stance). If the player is attacked in that period (while doing the okiagari, etc.) then they won’t be able to block and will take the hit.
– Blocking made possible
– Can’t enter the blocking stance and thus can’t block

1-02 Sodom
– For Tengu Walking, if the command input was complete and he got hit, he would complete the move taking damage. (normal knockdown damage is ignored if the character has reached beyond the midpoint of the move)
– Carry out the normal knockdown (animation) pattern and become invincible.
– If the command entry is done fast enough, the hit decision will remain and he will fall to the ground allowing him to take combos that would normally not be possible.

1-03 Guy
– In earlier versions before it was adjusted, Guy’s normal moves had high dizzy settings. The adjusted moves were 1: Standing Light Punch, 2: Standing Medium Punch, 3: Crouching Light Punch, and 4: Kubikari (2nd part). In training mode, when the attack data display was turned on, the stun (dizzy value) line would change to reflect it.
– Dizzy value low
– Dizzy value high

1-04 Sodom
– Can’t use the Kouten Okiagari move.
– Can use
– Can’t use

1-05 Akuma
– The Shun Goku Satsu command is displayed as “Light Punch, Light Punch, ?, Light Kick, Heavy Punch” but internally “Light Punch, Light Punch, ?, Light Kick” is enough to initiate it.
– Initiate using “Light Punch, Light Punch, ?, Light Kick, Heavy Punch” (Facing Right)
– Initiate using “Light Paunch, Light Punch, ?, Light Kick” (Facing Right)

1-06 Charlie
– All of the standard move cancellations are an 8 frame period. Each character has certain moves they can’t cancel, but Charlie has no such limitation (Charlie can cancel out of any move within the correct timing).
-Standing Heavy Punch, Crouching Heavy Punch, Crouching Medium Kick, Crouching Heavy Kick are all impossible to cancel.
– Possible to cancel the moves within the correct timing period.

1-07 Charlie
– The Sobat (holding analog stick and performing a standing medium kick) attack decision timing speed, movement speed, and delay after the attack were adjusted.
– Move performed with more of a delay, movement speed slows down a little, and the delay after the attack increases
– Standard setting

1-08 Adon
– After the Super Combo Jaguar Varied Assault was initiated at Level 3, by repeatedly pressing punch or kick, different moves were supposed to be performed, but due to an original program error they would not.
– Perform the moves
– Don’t perform the moves

1-09 ALL
– If the focal point of the attack decision between the player and opponent is more than 96 dots apart, the player does not go into the blocking stance and for characters with long reaches a hit would be registered.
– Blocking made possible
– Character does not enter the blocking stance, so blocking is not possible. The front of Sagat’s standing light kick is unblockable by any character.

1-10 Rose
– With the Soul Illusion, the silhouette attacks were not the real body attack so they were unblockable. (character does not enter the blocking stance)
– Blocking made possible
– Do not enter the blocking stance and do not block. For times when not near the edges of the screen and sliding (crouching medium kick) or using a heavy kick on an opponent getting up, blocking is impossible.

– The Aura Soul Spark finishing animation turns into a diagonal sun effect.
– Central sun effect
– Diagonal sun effect

– It is possible to have an unlimited number of Psycho Shots on the screen at once.
– Only one shot on the screen at one time
– Can have multiple shots at once (likely 2)

1-16 M. Bison
– The speed after M. Bison’s Head Press makes contact is slightly slower than the final version. Also, the hit decision point on Dan’s head while he was standing was set to the wrong value so M. Bison’s Head Press move would go over his head. -Can hit Dan while he is in the standing position
– Movement speed after hit is slowed down, can’t hit Dan in his standing position (fly over him)

2-01 Dan
