How to Switch to Classic Controls
By RE:Deemer
For reducing salt consumption in anyone over the age of 30.
What's the purpose of this guide?
The UI of the game is trash and it's easy to see why people are raging over being unable to change the controls to their preferred scheme. Most people wouldn't think to look through the character select screen and are likely going to the options section instead. Even when you manage to change the controls there (its somehow more complicated than just pushing a button) people are frustrated to find out that in online play, the control scheme hasn't changed.

I've taken photos of the proper process to change to Classic mode for online play.
Step 1: Push whatever button is bound to "Battle Settings"
This one is pretty straight forward, after trying out the buttons on your controller of choice you'll find one that brings you to a sub menu that only has a few tabs. It should look like the following screenshot- select Character.
Step 2: Change the control scheme to Classic.
This is pretty straight forward. There are only three control options and Dynamic isn't available online at all. Just switch it over.

Step 3: Apply it to every character in the game.
I did this the hard way because I didn't realize you could just apply the setting to every character, and physically went to every character and did it that way. Don't be like me. Before you leave the previous screen, push whatever button you had bound to the "Battle Settings" to begin with, and it should give you the option to apply to all. Select yes.
Conclusion: Old Warrior
For all Capcom's faults, they at least gave us the option to use the decades old control scheme instead of being forced to use the "modern" ones like some other fighting games. It's just stupidly unintuitive to get to. I hope this makes your play ten times better and/or less frustrating.

Gl hf!

@とら I agree! I mostly wrote this guide for the people who were frustrated with being unable to change the control scheme. ^^;;

Honestly modern controls are totally fine to bring in new people, and it's much weaker than classic so there's still an incentive to go out and learn it legit if you want to improve. That's my take at least.

ikr? smh smh, the absolute state of the FGC. :steamsalty:


Its possible to rebind the buttons one at a time, sadly that will require a new guide entirely, however to get you started, iirc it should be in the "control settings" option you see in the screenshots above, so you should start there if you haven't already. c:

Wow i can't belive how a decent human person could be this toxic towards hard working minimum wage UI designers. The game's UI is BUSSIN and COOL, so if you don't like it maybe you should go back to SFV.
