Capcom reveals Street Fighter 5 server status, upcoming PC features, and more

This must be Shadaloo's doing.

Capcom was forced to bring down its servers for Street Fighter 5 recently in order to apply a fix that would hopefully fix all of the issues it’s been having, which includes issues with online functionality, issues logging in, intermittent disconnects, and more. Today, Capcom is updating players what it’s doing to address some of these issues.

On the network side of things, Capcom says login and intermittent connectivity issues should now be “less frequent” now that all platforms and regions have launched, thus allowing the service to stabilize. Matchmaking issues should also now be resolved.

PC players who are experiencing game boot-up or crashing issues, Capcom recommends checking your antivirus software settings as it may be preventing Street Fighter 5 from launching. Adding StreetFighterV.exe and/or the game installation directory to the exclusion list should prevent this issue.

For the PC version of Street Fighter 5, Capcom is looking into adding a number of requested features, such as native DirectInput support to allow existing PS3/PS4 arcade sticks playable on the platform, expand key rebinding functionality and in-game language options, and cleaning up resolution switching.

Capcom plans on rolling out another round of updates to Street Fighter 5, although we doubt with everything going on, it’ll be the “free update in March” we’ve been hearing about so often lately.

      Amazon shipped my copy. After reading some reviews, I've never been so unenthusiastic about a game arriving. I tried to cancel my order last night but it looks like it was too late.

      I still can't believe there's no arcade mode. Blows my mind.

        That is kind of odd. I'm still hyped for my copy though. It may be rushed for tournament schedules and light on features, but by all accounts (and from the fights I've watched) the core mechanics are fantastic. I wouldn't blame anyone for waiting a couple months to pick it up though.

        Yeah, no arcade mode makes me pretty angry, not because I need it but because that will prevent a lot of newcomers from playing SF5.

        Capcom's PC ports have been really solid, I think the issue here was the rush to release in time for this year's tournament schedule. I'm pretty confident they'll get it updated quickly.

        Yep. I bought it yesterday after hearing everyone complain. In the end I had a blast playing it with my GF and trying out the Survival mode and such.

        The biggest complaint I have is that I am on my own to figure out all the new things. Not that it matters because I will still get my ass kicked online but the core gameplay is awesome.

        But the fact that my PS3 arcade stick won't work with the PC version without joy2key really sucks. I tried to get x360ce to work with no luck, and it seems like I am screwed until they update it with real DirectInput support.

        Still, I will keep playing it even despite it all, because in the end the base game is all you need to have fun. In a few months it will be more worthy of a must have, but for now only buy this game if you can shrug off all the issues.

          Yea unfortunately for people like you, all of the useful things to help get people up to speed won't be available until March. I'm glad you're still able to have fun with it though.

        I don't know man... I know you are a huge fighting game fan and at its core SF5 has tons of potential BUT if you look at it objectively it is missing a lot especially for new comers.

          Absolutely no argument there and it is a huge disappointment, but at the end of the day the longevity of the game is not dictated by trials or story mode but by the fundamental core gameplay, which by all accounts is great.

            I agree with that.

            Which fighter are you focusing on? I only got to play for about half an hour last night in practice mode but Birdie looks like a lot of fun!

              I'm mostly on Nash right now but I like rashid a lot too. The shackfighter group has a good mix of characters right now. You should stop by when they finally fix shit lol

        I'm not in any hurry at all to buy this, now. I'm not a hardcore fighter, just an amateur enthusiast, and from my point of view they just went full retard in trying to accommodate the competitive scene. If you haven't played a fighter before, Street Fighter 5 isn't the game to introduce you to the genre. I'm going to wait until everything's out, which at that point it'll probably be on sale.

          That came out pretty snarky. I just don't want a Quake 3 situation where newcomers were turned off by the missing features and abandon the game prematurely.

            Well that's certainly a valid concern given the state of the game at the moment

        Yeah, I'm holding off until some shit gets sorted out. I haven't followed closely, but I understand some features are missing until the end of next month.
