      The N64 controller is actually well suited for fighting games.

        The button layout yes, but it has a godawful dpad and that stick worked like no other stick on the market.

          The d-pad is great, and the analog stick is irrelevant for fighting games.

        Best is that B and A are still on a proper angle to use for plattformers, but in fairness, the analogue sticks, well, sticks out if you wanna use it for non n64 emulation or 2D games on steam

        Have you ever actually tried to use it for fighting games? Those little c-buttons are thumb destroyers. If they had stuck with the Ultra-era intention of making all six buttons the same size, it would be a different story…

          Felt fine when I was playing KI Gold.
          Of course, there's an easy way to test this. Just use a N64>USB adapter and fire up some ST.

          I was skeptical of them but like another anon said, they were fine in KI. Although I agree that they would be better if they were more like the Genesis or Saturn layout.

      1. The game had only been released on the 3do up to that point.
      2. There was actually a lot of people who were extremely hyped for the game even if game magazine journalists were not
      3. The controller would have been excellent for this game. Great d-pad and six face buttons.

      It's the fifth revision of SF2. The most popular video game in the entire world in 1992 and 93.
      It would have sold very well for an N64 game.

        Capcom were all in on the PS and weren't really bothering much with Nintendo at the time. Also I might be wrong but Nintendo didn't want 2D games on the N64 and discouraged them.

          That is all correct but at the same time the statement:
          >in 1996 Why would I want to play SF2 port number 50001 for the ten millionth time on a shit controller?
          is in bad faith because there was still high demand for a good console port of Super Turbo. To the point that Capcom ported it yet again to the Dreamcast just a few years after the PS1 and Saturn ports. And then released it yet -again- not that long after in the form of HSFII.

          SSF2T for N64 would have been a good selling game and Okamoto would probably have been on board with it but the suits at Capcom had other ideas. He's kinda salty over it to this day if you watch his videos about the history of ST ports where he talks about the decision to port it to the 3do.

            Capcom did throw this bone which can give you an idea of what SNES port of ST could have been like.

            They weren't minor changes. ST tourney play is barely anything like SF2 tourney play.

            If you look carefully that is the PS1 version in versus mode. I used it because I think an N64 version might have been in 320x240.

            Knows off. I know N64 capable run Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge, Asuka 120% and groove on fight.

          Nintendo was okay about 2D games, BUT you had to use their SDK that was optimised for 3D. The OP image is meant as a troll but in reality you'd wind up having to make that because every sprite would have to be an orthogonally projected quad with 3-point filtering turned on.
          The N64 was fully capable of pixel perfect output, but you had to be one of Nintendo's chosen elites like Rare or Factor 5 to be allowed to turn off the pixel destroying filters. The usual kind of low rent outsourced studio that handles these ports wouldn't have the time, strength or will to fight Nintendo on their policies and would just have malicious complianced it through quality assurance until it was the lowest tier port going.

            If any company would be considered an elite it would be Capcom. And since this was on a Nintendo system it would not be outsourced.

    No issues. The ROM will fit on a standard 32mb cartridge and N64 has the hardware for the rest to make an excellent near-arcade perfect port.

        Trilogy was a half-assed job on a really small cartridge, Midway should have let Eurocom handle the port like they did with MK4 and Cruis'n World.
        And despite that, it's the one tourneyfags prefer for competitive play.

          well it's a pretty understandable thought process when there's like seven versions of the game as is, like you don't have to pump out a sequel every year granted but selling the same game with some minor changes every year ain't much better

      This would have been excellent but would be an upgraded version of the previous versions. I don't think it would have needed any special chip but if they added one like they did for SFZ2 it could have been even better.
      >NEC SG
      Similar to the SFC versions.
      >Neo Geo
      Slightly cropped on the sides, possibly improved backgrounds with more things going on than the CPS2, different but still very good audio. Extra harness to add 2 more buttons (probably by wiring A+D and B+C combos to be E and F).

        Extra Note: probably some zooming in and out of the screen since that was a thing Neo Geo could do better than CPS2.

    In 1996 everybody was sick and tired of SF2. It would have sold like shit on the N64 because most people already played the fuck out of that game in '93/'94.

    • 3 weeks ago

      The N64 was so starved of quality fighting games that it probably would have sold relatively well. Combine that with the low cost of porting it and you'd likely get a fairly profitable release.

      If that's true why did Capcom release Street Fighter Collection with this game on PS1 and Saturn in 1997?

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Because compilations have always been a cheap way to get extra sales for very little development investment. Sticking a bunch of games on a CD = cheap. There was also comparatively little upfront investment in a PS1/Saturn game. If you only sold 10000 copies you only had to request 10000 copies be manufactured. Nintendo's cartridge manufacturing policy would have meant Capcom was on the hook for tens of thousands in order to get halfway decent prices.

        The buttom press is mushy, not click, fells like pressing down on something of poor quality. Hard isn't mutually exclusive with mushy, unless you are talking about the dpad structure itself, and why the fuck you would.
        You can have something mushy and that requires a hard press (N64 dpad) and something mushy that is light to press (genesis dpad)

          D-pads aren't supposed to be clicky. This was the norm for almost the entirety of video game history. Clicky d-pads are more of a recent thing, and in my opinion are terrible for anything outside of menu navigation.

    The N64 d-pad is literally nearly the exact same d-pad the SNES used. They use rubber contact pads that are interchangeable and feel exactly the same if swapped around.
    The only difference with the N64 d-pad is the plastic part that is the actual cross shape has a slant to the bottom of it that the SNES one does not.

    So if you hate the N64 d-pad then you also hate the SNES d-pad, which is usually considered one of the best d-pads ever.

      I think most people find the N64's d-pad "rigid" because most people never really used it much, since most of the most popular N64 games didn't require the d-pad, or at least not heavy use of it. So most controllers, while the 3D stick is worn out, the d-pad is still practically brand-new. Use it for a while and yeah it will feel like a SNES d-pad.
