**UPDATE 06/04** SSFIVAE GFWL to Steamworks transition - Please post your issues here
Hello Community,

While we expect the vast majority of fans will have a smooth transition from GFWL to Steamworks, it's safe to assume there may be a case where the game may not function as intended.

As we've done before, please use this forum thread to share any technical issues you may be experiencing with the game. We’ll use this thread as a central repository for tracking issues, and then pass on the information to the development team so they can take a look at it. There's no need to repost from other threads as we're currently pulling information from them right now, and will regularly update this post with the most common issues we're seeing that you're experiencing. Please keep the details clean and concise.

IMPORTANT: Please share the following information when posting in this thread.

A) Your System Specs
1) CPU name and model
2) Graphics card/chip model
3) Video driver version number
4) System memory size
5) OS version (Windows 7, 8, 64-bit/32-bit, etc.)
6) OS language
7) Motherboard/chipset, if known (or if a laptop, make/model)

B) Specific issue
Please share your specific issue and the area where you’re experiencing this behavior.

C) Detailed reproduction steps, if consistently reproducible
This step in particular is super helpful for the development team. The more detailed info you can provide, the quicker the team can reproduce the error state and (hopefully) fix the issue.

Any rant or “discussion” that derails the thread will be deleted as it becomes extremely difficult for us to track and compile issues.

Lastly, we’d appreciate if you can update your original post if there is additional detail or new findings from the bug you experienced, rather than replying in a large thread which becomes disjointed and may get lost.

Again, it goes back to the earlier point -- making it easy for us to track issues so we can share information with the development team quickly and as complete as possible.

Thank you for your patience and support everyone! :)

**UPDATE 06/04**

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the feedback so far! I want to take a moment to note that we’re aware of the lag and disconnect issue some users have been experiencing since the transition to Steamworks. We're investigating further and will provide additional detail when we have more information to share, so please stay tuned. That being said, in the meantime, our first patch is on the way and is set for arrival this weekend that addresses some of the lower-hanging fruit, so to speak. Please see below for details on what's being fixed when the update releases.

- Region restriction in matchmaking is being addressed.
- Adding ability to mute out within the in-game options.
- Setting the BGM to 0 will mute the music completely.
- The 11th and 12th colors from SFIV will be unlocked for everyone.
- Constant prompt and need to install the redistributable will be removed.
- The GFWL install attempt will also be fixed.
- The country flag placeholder will now display the neutral grey SSFIVAE logo instead of the Ultra SFIV logo.

"The ANY search is unlocked but the SAME search is still locked to your location on the steam servers rather than the whole country."

Sound sttutering is the issue I have (gameplay is ahead of sound and when sound catch ups to the moves recently performed, music, even the the anouncer it arrives in the for of stutter and static.) never had a problem with GFWL.

2) Nvidia GTX660
3) Geforce 337.88
4) 1 Terabyte
5) Windows 7
6) English
7) Asrock Z77 Pro 3

B) Main Issues
- Cannot use DualShock 4 controller with use of Inhexster's X-Input wrapper program. When Dualshock 4 is plugged in, AE Steam edition swaps around normal defaults (ie: Standing Strong Punch is Standing medium kick instead). AE GFWL edition never had this issue. I'd really like to use my DualShock 4 with this game with no problems.Please see this thread:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/45760/discussions/0/522728634060662410/ )

- Online is nearly unplayable. Game feels a noticably 5 frames or more slower, and when the connection actually lags, the game freezes with a "Waiting for other user" message. All in all, the netcode is really bad.

- Title screen is that of the console version's original Super Street Fighter 4 screen with no edition specified.

- Horrendous announcer. The announcer is the loudest and most obnoxious he's ever been in any of the versions. I think the announcer actually announces things for both players at the same time, instead of just annoucning things for a single person. Low background music volume, with super loud and glitchy sounding announcer.

C) Run game, play a match online, realize how bad it is, alt F4.

Please just fix the lag issues so it at least matches or is better than the GFWL version, fix the annoying announcer, and the controller issues, and I'll be happy.

Thanks for finally addressing this Capcom.

The announcer is very loud in multiplayergames compared to what it used to be, and the only way to turn this down is to mute all voices.

If you set BGM to 0 in settings you still get the music playing.

There is no realiable way to mute your microphone without muting it in windows.

I sometimes get "Waiting for other player" into a "Lost connection to the opponent" when I play multiplayer and had no issues with this before steamworks.

There is no way to communicate with a player after a match.

Would also be great if the regionlock was removed to make it easier to find lobbies!

make ingame option to disable microphone communications, steam voice settings doesnt work in games, its meant for chats or atleast it works in chats. Also remove the steamworks region lock thats on by default in every steamwork game if not removed

Online is absolutely unplayable right now. Even green connections which were stable before now have a frame delay ranging from 5 to 30 frames. Endless lobbies are getting constantly shut down by connection problems ("Waiting for other players", "Lost connection to opponent", etc.). When the connection actually works fine, it's good, but it rarely happens.

Microphone cannot be disabled in this game. I'm usually talking to my girlfriend on Skype when I'm playing SF4 and I don't need other people to know what I'm trying to say to her. Reasons.

Everything the announcer says can be heard on both sides, making him talk too often and too loud.

B) Specific issue
1) Sound effects and music are choppy, stutter, although action in game is normal.
2) Xbox 360 controller isn't recognized initally, (alt tabbing, switching between programs brings it back)
3) Game lags and action slows down.

C) Detailed reproduction steps, if consistently reproducible
1) Ran game, music choppy, controller not responding.
2) alt-tab and switch back to SFIV, controller works, music still choppy.
3) Start Arcade Game, music choppy.\
4) First fight, music choppy action becomes progessively slower, and choppy.
5) Quit game, close program.

I've tried it on lower settings, but problem remains the same.

Thanks for the help! Looking forward to a fix :)

I downloaded the update on my laptop. When I launched it it did not ask me to trasnfer data from my GFWL. The save data I had on my laptop was corrupted a while ago so I never fixed it. It asked me if I wanted to create a new save file which I did. Nothing from my GFWL was transfered over though. My BP and PP rankings weren't transfered either.

When I went on my desktop to play SF4 it used the empty save file from my laptop that got synced up with steam cloud. When I launched it it didn't give me the option to load data from my GFWL and I had to use the empty save file. So now I'm stuck with a new game file and my rankings don't show up either.

Only issue my friend and I are having is that we can't seem to mute our mics in multiplayer, since that was in the GFWL menu previously. Is there a way to change your mic input somehow through launch settings? Don't see anything in ingame menus

B) Specific issue

Announcer loud and you can hear him announce things for yourself and other player at the same time.
Game stops you mid match at times to say "Waiting for Other Player" or completely disconnects you.
There is more lag overall than there was in GFWL.
If you have music on a 3rd party app playing the game will lower it. Not sure if this is Steam's normal behavior or not but its the first I've seen it happen.
Music at times is choppy like stated above.

C) Detailed reproduction steps, if consistently reproducible

Clean install the game, and play a multiplayer game. Pretty simple....smh.

Sound stuttering, and I'm noticing screen tearing, and I would also like the region lock removed.

The sound starts up fine and it's flawless in the menus, but as game play starts sound keeps stuttering and over time it becomes a hot mess. The stuttering becomes immediate even if I'm in the menus if I alt tab out of the game and come back. That doesn't seem to be the main cause of the problem however as the sound brakes over time no mater what. Even if i don't alt tab.
