      That list covers everything I would want with the exception of maybe:
      • Let us toggle hit effects on and off or;
      • Make side turned hit effects differ more on normal hit and counter hit
      Thank you for collecting all of this!

      Wow, I haven't been here for a while.

      I feel like the game was rushed somewhat because they had what, 1 year? And dealing with Covid the whole time? I'm reading the list and I see stuff that should've been included day 1. And some game modes from FS are missing...Anyway, here are my requests (sorry for any overlap):

      • Rollback (a big ask, but necessary)
      • P2P
      • Need the rest of the costume options from Final Showdown (and maybe add more?)
      • Whenever new players join a room, there should be a way to show the health bars and rounds of players currently fighting so they know when a match is about to end.
      • Allow multiple matches to occur in a room at a time.
      • Improved tutorial (need it to be on VF4 Evo's level)
      • Restore the game modes from Final Shodown
      • For training mode, add an option to display inputs, frame data, and button presses all at once

      - Solid Rollback Netcode. A MUST.
      - Quest Mode.
      - More customization/costumes.
      - Option to save more costumes, and also to name your costumes.
      - Add or simply remove *if possible* the limit of customization items. (it's 10/10 now)
      - Option to quickly change 1P character or 2P character during practice mode.
      - Option to invite in your Room/lobby.

      That's all for now.

      Legacy controller support so I might actually play it.

      • Legacy Mode for USB Arcade Sticks to work
      • Quest Mode (Even through season pass) and more SP content

      Command Training Mode:
      • Play demonstrations of moves with a single button - like Dead or Alive - instead of having to open the command list and pressing triangle.
      • Allow to choose a move and set a count for it to be done.

      • More health bar options (VF4!)
    8. Gibon
      • The option to turn off hit sparks.
      • ALL of the FS customization items.
      • VF2-4 UIs.
      • New 3D artist to redo the faces.

      I think you all nailed the most important ones on the head, it's hard for me to provide anything else needed.
    10. JackymusPrime
      Add all customization items from VF5:FS to Ultimate Showdown.
      Rollback Net Code
    11. Oioron
      The ability to toggle it on/off may create advantage/disadvantage during VS mode when both players are looking at the same screen. Players new and old who learn to rely on the new hit-sparks for hit-confirm will lose that ability if it's off. Conversely, a player who learned to hit-confirm without the hit-sparks may be at a disadvantage if the sparks are on.

      So instead of on/off, maybe they can subdue the hit-sparks effect a tad?

      Guys please a bit off topic but anyone has link to see all VF5FS custimzation and costumes?
    13. OneEnviousGamer
      It's mostly Training Mode stuff, but whatever:
      • Demonstrations in Basic Training so that new players can visually grasp why they're being asked to execute a specific advanced maneuver and thus better identify the situation in real matches. Also just more tutorials in Basic Training.
      • An Endlag or "Ending" display in the stat window.
      • Allow Advantage on-hit to display if you land a stagger or launch!
      • More COM Reaction options in Training Mode, like "Guard, Normal Hit, or CH". OR, just have Guard be its own separate option and if set to On (or Random), all Reactions will occur following it
      • Allow players to choose a specific move from their training target's movelist and set the dummy to do that move repeatedly rather than having to manually record that move.
      • Expanding on the last point, allow players to put together a list of commands and moves on-screen not only to practice individual moves, but also train specific combos.
      • Probably too much to ask for, but this applies to fighting games in general: If VF wants its most difficult AI to feel like human players and not cheating bots, they need to give a variable 18-24 frame "buffer" before COM can react, instead of being able to consistently react to and defend against attacks on the first frame. That way COM takes part of the natural guessing game, and training against active COM feels closer to fighting a human opponent.

      True, was even worried about the dynamic on/off would cause for offline play. I like making them more subdued or distinct. Good call.

      Single Player:

      -Versus (Player vs CPU)
      -Quest (Like they did with Evolution and original 5.)
      -Tournament (Like they did with Evolution and original 5)

      -Team Battle
      -Score Battle
      -Make Dural Playable in Arcade, versus, Training, Customizable
      and Ghost Battle, except online mode.
      -Watch Mode(With Various Camera selections)
      -Add Special Tournament (Like they did with VF4E. For example, Knockdown Clash, Hyper battle, Survival, Sea Saw, Ultimate Battle, Venus, Mirror Match, etc.)

      -Three more types(D, E, and S) needs to be added and return with all the costumes from a previous game, the final showdown.
      -Add VF1 model for Dural
      -Add more VF1 stages
      -Bring back VF3-VF4 Stage
      -VF2-VF4 Attire to Be added for ALL characters.
      -VF3-VF5R UIs
      -Unlimited Slots for ALL characters

      If Player 1 has Hits Sparks OFF and Player 2 has Hits Sparks on, Then Player 2 will see Hit Sparks for both Player 1 and Player 2, and Player 1 will not see Hit Sparks for Player 1 or Player 2. So an option to toggle them on or off, will let the player that wants to see them , see them for both players, and the player that does not want to see them, will not see them for either player. Its actually easier from a programming point of view to provide the toggle than it is to subdue the sparks;)

      This is probably a pipe dream but I would love a PS4/PS5 arcade stick from SEGA with arcade parts in it. Something VF themed or even just a high quality stick that is readily available. One of the biggest problems in the FGC has always been finding high quality sticks.

      Game Improvements:
      - Training Mode option to simultaneous display detailed information, input display, etc
      - Legacy Controller Support

      Future Seasonal/Regular Add-Ons:
      - Willing to support cosmetic updates: change game HUD to previous versions of VF, stages (for example Dural's sanctuary), etc.

      Rollback is the main one. Next a Wifi indicator. Showing the connections. Buff up training mode, for example adding: CPU will block after the first hit. Things like that. You guys did a good job already with the suggestions.
