Huge List of Bug Fixes for Street Fighter V Story Mode

July 14, 2016 Written by Keri Honea

Ibuki Street Fighter V update

The free Story Mode expansion that released in June for Street Fighter V has opened up an unbelievable number of bugs. The July update, that Capcom is squeezing in right before the biggest fighting game tournament of the year, will have all of the following bug fixes for each of the characters. This shouldn’t affect the EVO tournament this weekend, as it is all for the Story Mode, but fingers crossed that the patch won’t break something else. Surely the EVO consoles won’t have these fixes installed just in case, right?

In addition to all of the fixes below, Capcom tweeted that they are indeed aware of another problem with cheating:

We’re aware of users exploiting cheats to unlock in-game entitlements. These users will be identified and subject to an account review.

That fix will most likely follow in a separate update, if there is even a fix. Perhaps they’ll just ban users for exploiting cheats, which won’t make many friends in the community.

Without further ado, here are all of the bugs and fixes for the characters in Story Mode.

Cammy

Bug: Cammy’s Fatal Leg Twister cannot throw opponents who are in a couch state; however, when an opponent is coming out of a damage motion/animation and is attempting to crouch while coming out the animation, Cammy could through the opponent.

Fix: Cammy’s Fatal Leg Twister, a throw attack that is not meant to throw opponents in a crouching state, is no longer able to throw an opponent  who is inputting a crouch while coming out of a damage motion/animation.

Nash

Bug: When throwing Sonic Booms (all strengths), Nash’s collision box did not extend all the way to Nash’s feet when releasing the projectile, causing the opponent character to pass through  him when approaching from behind.

Fix: Set the collision box of the Sonic Boom motion to reach Nash’s feet, so that the opponent character cannot pass through him.

Bug: Nash’s collision box when stunned (dizzied) is slightly shifted towards his backside when compared to how he appears on screen and when trying to hit Nash while in a stunned state, unintended behaviors would occur.

Fix: Adjusted Nash’s collision box when in a stunned state so that its position matches Nash’s appearance on screen.

Bug: Activating V-Trigger at the same time the opponent performs a V-Reversal, caused a bug where the camera would move incorrectly for a period of time.

Fix: Corrected this issue so that when Nash’s V-Trigger is activated at the same time as the opponent’s V-Reversal the camera no longer moves incorrectly.

F.A.N.G

Bug: During M. or H. Ryobenda, there is a moment where F.A.N.G’s lower body collision box would disappear, which was unintended.

Fix: Adjusted M. and H. Ryobenda so that the collision box is consistent throughout the entire motion of the move.

Rashid

Bug: In Flap Spin, V. Spinning Mixer, and Dash Spinning Mixer, the empty guard box was set so that it could not force the opponent’s guard motion.

Fix: Flap Spin, V. Spinning Mixer, and Dash Spinning Mixer, are now able to force the opponent to empty guard.

Bug: When doing an EX Eagle Spike from Front Flip (V-Skill), the kick buttons have to be pressed at precisely the same time in order for the move to come out.

Fix: EX Eagle Spike from Front Flip will come out even if there is a one frame gap between the kick buttons that are pressed simultaneously.

Bug: Due to the small size of V Eagle Spike’s collision box, when performing the move when the V-Trigger’s tornado is right behind the opponent, the move would pass through the opposite side of the opponent.

Fix: Increased the size of V Eagle Spike’s collision box so that Rashid doesn’t pass through the opponent.

Bug: When Assault Beak hits as a counter hit, the distance created between Rashid and the opponent upon hit is a little more than when it hits normally, which is not intended.

Fix: Adjusted Assault Beak so that when it hits as a counter, the distance created between Rashid and the opponent is the same as when Assault Beak hits are a normal hit.

Bug: Rashid was unable to cancel the initial jump frames into Altair.

Fix: Initial jump frames can now be canceled into Altair.

Birdie

Bug: There is a section in Bull Slider’s hurt box that doesn’t contain a throw box, which unintentionally provided throw invincibility to Birdie.

Fix: There is now a throw box throughout the entire motion of Bull Slider.

Alex

Bug: Alex’s V-Skill, Overhaul’s effect is supposed to be negated when Alex hits an opponent with an attack, when his attack is guarded, or when getting hit by an opponent’s attack. However, even when Alex’s J. LP or J. LK is guarded, the effect would remain present.

Fix: When J. LP or J. LK is guarded by the opponent, Overhaul’s effect is negated.

Ken

Bug: During V-Trigger, L. Shoryuken landing motion can be canceled into M. Shoryuken, H. Shoryuken, or EX Shoryuken. But, when an opponent jumps over Ken while he is performing this cancel on a whiffed V L. Shoryuken, Ken would perform the additional Shoryuken towards the opposite direction.

Fix: V. L. Shoryuken landing animation after being whiffed or guarded is no longer cancelable into M. Shoryuken, H. Shoryuken, or EX Shoryuken.

Bug: When H. Shoryuken trades during the initial part of the attack, Ken is way more advantageous and can easily gain the upper hand, which was not intended.

Fix: Made it difficult for Ken to gain the upper hand when the first part of an H. Shoryuken trades with an opponent’s attack.

Ryu

Bug: When Jodan Sanrengeki hits an opponent right when they are going from a standing state into a crouching state, the hit animation of the opponent behaved irregularly.,

Fix: Adjusted Jodan Sanrengeki so that when it hits an opponent transferring into a couching state, the opponents hit animation behaves normally.

Bug: During V-Trigger, when successfully performing Mind’s Eye (V-Skill), it was impossible to cancel the second half of Mind’s Eye’s into another Mind’s Eye.

Fix: Corrected this so that during V-Trigger, the second half of a successfully performed Mind’s Eye can be canceled into another Mind’s Eye.

M. Bison

Bug: EX Head Press (including while V-Trigger is activated) would miss the second stomp at times when used against certain actions.

Fix: The hit box of the second stomp in EX Head Press (including while V-Trigger is activated) has been expanded, making it easier for it to hit.

Bug: When Psycho Inferno hits an opponent or is guarded, the side taking damage would gain large amount of meter.

Fix: Lowered the amount of meter gained by the side taking damage from being hit or guarding Psycho Inferno.

Dhalsim

Bug: The empty guard box on Yoga Gale (normal ver.) is placed high, making it difficult to force opponents to guard.

Fix: Lowered the empty guard box on Yoga Gale, making it easier to force opponents to guard.

Guile

Bug: When Guile’s Sonic Hurricane hits an airborne opponent right after the move becomes active, if the opponent performs a recovery, Guile would be put at about a 16 frame disadvantage.

Fix: Because this was an unintended circumstance, Sonic Hurricane has been adjusted so that in cases when it hits and only on hit, Guile will be able to move before his opponent.

Vega

Bug: When performing a V-Trigger (Bloody Kiss – Rojo) without the claw on wake-up or after guarding, it was impossible for it to be used as a reversal.

Fix: This has been corrected so that when the V-Tigger (Bloody Kiss – Rojo) is used without the claw on during wake-up or after guarding it can be used as a reversal.

Chun-Li

Bug: When Dhalsim is the opponent, when attempting to hit him with Yosokyaku’s first hit, whether or not it would hit would differ between the 1P side and the 2P side under specific circumstances.

Fix: Widened the hit box of Yosokyaku towards Chun-Li’s backside very slightly so that when the move hits or misses is consistent regardless of which side Chun-Li is on.

Vega

Bug: With the claw is equipped, when inputting down(any crouch input)+LP+LK right before waking up or coming out of hit/guard stun,  he would perform a C. LP instead of a normal throw when Vega becomes moveable.

Fix: This has been corrected so that when pressing down (any crouch input)+LP+LK during reversal timing with Vega (w/ claw) will result in a normal throw when Vega becomes movable.

Ibuki

Bug: After activating Ibuki’s air throw (Tobizaru), Ibuki was invincible while landing on the ground.

Fix: Added a hurtbox to Ibuki during her landing frames after an activated Tobizaru.

Bug: When holding down HP while activating Tenrai (Ibuki’s V-Skill), Tenrai would only come out at max charge.

Fix: Corrected this so that even when holding down HP, Tenrai can be used without being charged.
