  • Modding: Added CharacterSFX to the bottom of the Types doc
0.65.5 2021/09/07

0.65.4 2021/09/07
  • Buffed Noodle/Rice: Whip's close hitbox has been made 25% taller
  • NOTE: This is to fix a bug introduced in 0.65.2, where the slightly higher launch on Swat meant that doing Swat > RC > Whip in the corner would whiff
0.65.3 2021/09/05
  • Settings: Fixed RenderFPS, which wasn't having any effect before now
  • Settings: Mobile players are now defaulted to RenderFPS=30 to ensure a smooth framerate. Feel free to increase it if your phone is fast enough
  • NOTE: RenderFPS can dramatically increase performance on weaker devices by processing the game at 60 FPS, but drawing at a reduced framerate (30/40/45)
0.65.2 2021/09/05
  • Fixed Rice: Fixed bug where Swat Slam (the second hit of Swat) would whiff in the corner
0.65.1 2021/09/05
  • Adjusted Noodle/Rice: Whip Splash startup increased 10 > 13 for consistency with new attack "Whip Around". This should not affect existing combos
  • Buffed Rice: Added new attack Whip Around, a variant of Whip Splash that crosses up. Press Forward + Heavy during Whip Pounce to cancel into Whip Around
  • Buffed Rice: Fixed bug where Swat was +0 on hit. It is now +1 as originally intended
  • Buffed Rice: Swat now places the opponent slightly further away, to better match the art (Spice Sweep still reaches)
  • Nerfed Rice: Removed ability to cancel Whip Pounce into Swipe
  • Nerfed Rice: Reduced meter gain on Swat 200 > 100
0.65.0 2021/09/04
  • Buffed Onion: Cackle has been redesigned to lead to more combo opportunities
  • Cackle now attacks 10 frames after the parry freeze with a lightning bolt, dealing 100 damage and leaving Onion +12 on hit to continue a custom combo at close range
  • Cackle has the same freeze/startup timing as Beef's Flex, making it viable as an anti-air attack (though still difficult to time)
  • Cackle's animation has been adjusted to fit this new timing and make the lightning bolt more visible
  • Cackle's attack reaches far, has no pushback on hit, deals 100 damage / 50 chip, and is safe (though minus) on block
  • Cackle's meter gain on activation has been reduced 200 > 100 (though the followup attack now adds 100 meter on hit)
  • Cackle is vulnerable before the lightning bolt, so you still want to parry multiple times against Frenzy and other multi-hit attacks
  • Cackle's attack hits once, but acts like 5 attacks for scaling (the followup combo will do much lower damage than normal)
  • Modding: Added "addScaling" to AttackConfig
0.64.8 2021/09/04
  • Redeployed 0.64.7
0.64.7 2021/09/04
  • Buffed Onion: When parrying a multi-hit attack (eg Frenzy) by canceling Cackle into another Feint, the followup Feints have a larger parry window (5 > 10 frames), making those followup parries very easy to time
  • Training: Change default meter setting to "Refill"

0.62.10 2021/08/18

0.51.2 2021/05/09
  • Buffed Garlic: Adjusted distance traveled during Dash and Dash Again to match level before 0.51.0
  • NOTE: Dash's nerf in 0.51.0 was an accident caused by the Sweep rework. Dash should now travel the same distance as before when done alone, done out of Sweep or Dash, or when cancelled into a followup. However, changes that are staying for now include: removed pushboxes near the end of Dash + the beginning of Dash Again AND the Dash Again being 1 frame shorter

  • Buffed Onion/Garlic: Sweep active frames increased 5 > 7
  • Buffed Onion/Garlic: Sweep recovery reduced 16 > 13
  • Buffed Onion/Garlic: Sweep lingering hurtbox removed for the last 4 frames
  • Nerfed Onion/Garlic: Sweep lingering hurtbox has been enlarged to match the animation + make whiff punishing with Beef/Pork Gutpunch easier
  • Buffed Onion: Hopkick is no longer considered "airborne", allowing it to avoid Swat
  • Nerfed Onion: Hopkick hurtbox changed to a normal standing hurtbox, meaning it no longer goes over Whip (animation has been shifted lower to reflect this)
  • Nerfed Onion: Hopkick projectile-invuln frames have been reduced
  • Nerfed Onion: Hopkick hitstun reduced 23 > 21 so that it no longer links into Light (even when meaty)
  • Buffed Garlic: "Dash Again" is a new unique move that's 1 frames shorter than Dash and has a slightly different animation. Dash Again is what you get when cancelling Sweep or Dash into Dash
  • Nerfed Garlic: Removed cancel options off Backflip
  • How To Play: Updated Tutorials and Combo Trials
  • --- Explanation--
  • Walk speed: Carbs were always meant to be slower than Meats, and this is fixing an oversight. Everyone has also been slightly slowed down / brought closer together to help prevent faster characters running away
  • Throw avoid: Walking forward to avoid throws is admittedly strange, but we're trying it out for a reason. It's simple, stays in the spirit of throws (they only work on blocking), and fixes the difficult scenario of consistently avoiding Caber Toss (just hold forward)
  • Throw ranges: These been expanded in proportion to walk speed. This is to help slower characters successfully throw faster characters before they can walk out of range
  • Noodle has had their damage capability and corner carry nerfed. In exchange, they gained more zoning tools
  • Rice has also lost the Whip loops, but retained big damage via Swat. Swipe has been split off of Swat and tuned to be a viable attack in neutral. Rice can also now can force a guessing game by choosing to cancel into Swipe or Swat after landing a Whip
  • Beef's Palm attack got a little too strong in 0.41.0 with the RAPID addition. By making the RC worse, the strength is dialed back a bit, while keeping the chip setups. Spike was buffed to make it more appealing as a combo ender
  • Pork has the same Palm and Spike changes as Beef. Caber Toss is meant to be unaffected by the Throw Change, as the 50/50 of meaty attack or toss still works if the opponent holds forward to escape the throw (instead of perfectly timing an attack)
  • Onion's Sweep has had the recovery reduced to make it less risky to whiff. Hopkick has been changed to a grounded attack to make the Noodle/Rice matchups less swingy. The walk speed change has made Roundhouse conversions more situational. When they get in, they should be just as strong as before
  • Garlic's Dash has been reworked under the hood to work the same as before with the new, shorter Sweep. Backflip cancels were a niche tool and were removed to make meaty situations simpler for the opponent
0.50.9 2021/05/07
  • Gameplay: Fixed major input buffer bug where input delay (when playing Online) lined up incorrectly with hitstop, potentially causing inputs to buffer extremely long (eg doing Garlic's Dash and getting Sneak without the second press)

  • Gameplay: Parry attacks now have hurtboxes during recovery frames
  • Gameplay: Parry attacks are negative on block, but not punishable (-5)
  • Gameplay: Parry attacks can now be armored and parried
  • Gameplay: Activating a parry no longer causes hitstop, and instead additional freeze frames with animation have been added to the parry attack
  • Buffed Beef: BEEFCAKE now juggles for 3
  • Nerfed Beef: BEEFCAKE hitbox reduced to match animation
  • Changed Onion: Cackle animation now uses Roundhouse to animate the hit
  • Nerfed Onion: Feint recovery increased 25 > 30, bringing the total duration to 35 (Beef's Flex is still 40)
  • Nerfed Onion: Cackle damage reduced 100 > 50
  • Nerfed Onion: Cackle hitbox reduced to match animation
  • Nerfed Onion/Garlic: Trip hitbox has been made shorter so it will no longer anti-air
  • NOTES: The changes to Parry startup and recovery should open up interesting opportunities for safe jumps and projectiles. However, in situations like neutral, blockstrings, and anti-airs, Parries should be functionally unchanged. Onion's recovery on Feint has been slightly reverted, making it just a little easier to whiff punish up close.

0.48.0 2021/04/26
  • Gameplay: All attacks can now be parried except throws and other parries

  • Menu: Updated tutorials to account for the renames and new parry changes
  • Buffed Beef: Flex now gains 200 meter on whiffs (cause they flexin)
  • Buffed Beef: Flex total animation on whiff reduced 65 > 40, making it harder to punish on reaction
  • Buffed Beef: Flex recovery frames reduced 40 > 35
  • Nerfed Beef: Flex parry frames reduced 25 > 5
  • Nerfed Beef: BEEFCAKE meter gain reduced 1000 > 500
  • Nerfed Beef: BEEFCAKE now launches into knockdown (no juggle points)
  • Nerfed Beef: BEEFCAKE no longer reaches fullscreen and can now whiff (but be safe) against very long range attacks
  • Buffed Onion: Feint total animation on whiff reduced 38 > 30, making it harder to punish on reaction
  • Buffed Onion: Feint recovery frames reduced 28 > 25
  • Nerfed Onion: Feint parry frames reduced 10 > 5
  • Changed Onion: Cackle now launches nearby opponents with 4 juggle points. This should be easier to convert into a combo, but lead to less damage than previous max damage
  • Buffed Garlic: Sneak now does 20 chip damage on block
  • NOTES: We have been unsatisfied with the Parry mechanic thus far because (1) the risk/reward was too high, making matches too random and (2) it overlapped too much in function with Armor moves (Frenzy and Chop). To address (1), we reduced the risk and reward across the board, reducing the time to punish but also reducing the max damage possible. This should make people more willing to go for parries, while making the attacker less afraid of them. For (2), we decided to make the parry timing much stricter and universal (first 5 frames). This allows us to open it up for anti-air use (not trivial to use), adds a skill check, and helps distinguish it from Frenzy and Chop with their long armor frames. We are sad to remove the "custom combo" nature of Onion's parry, and are open to restoring it in the future if we can find another elegant way to cap the max damage. Lastly, unrelated to these parry changes, Sneak has been given a little chip to make it more viable at high level play as an option, and to encourage players to more proactively try to anti-air it.
0.47.5 2021/04/26
  • Animation: Added back in screen shake as a setting you can enable in Options (turned off by default)
  • Menu: Parry frames are now counted as Active frames, and other misc cleanup on the Frame Data menu

  • Online: Restarted matchmaking server
0.47.0 2021/04/10
  • Gameplay: Meter now gains at 50% rate after RAPID, instead of 0%. This reduced meter gain state is represented by the same purple combo counter as before
  • Buffed Noodle: Frenzy now keeps opponents grounded for the first 4 hits, allowing for more interesting RAPID followup options
  • Buffed Noodle: Short Fist (5SL) now appears slightly closer to Noodle, making conversions off Slap / Frenzy more consistent
  • Buffed Pork: Chop now slides slightly forward during armor frames
  • Nerfed Pork: Chop hitbox size has been slightly reduced to match the art (but it reaches net-further if you take the new forward slide into account)
  • Nerfed Pork: Chop active frames reduced 10 > 5
  • Buffed Garlic: Backflip now travels slightly further
  • NOTES: The recent April Fools patch had a lot of wacky stuff, but some of the changes were experiment balance tweaks. These are some of those smaller changes after being further tuned. Noodle's buff isn't large, but is merely meant to give Noodle more interesting options in an existing scenario. Pork currently feels very feast or famine when it comes to matchups, so the Chop changes are intended to make them less polarizing. The new slide should help in the difficult Noodle/Rice matchup (making it easier to armor through Whip), but hurt in the easy Onion/Garlic matchup (Chop is now easier to punish on a close block/whiff). Lastly, Garlic buff is a correction, partially undoing the 0.41.0 nerf that went too far. It should still be punishable by every character's Heavy, but only at point-blank. As for the other characters, we are still evaluating changes for Rice and Beef that are simply not ready at this time, and Onion is getting an indirect buff from the new meter rules.

0.42.2 2021/03/05
  • New animation: Onion Deflect
0.42.1 2021/03/05
  • Redeployed 0.42.0
0.42.0 2021/03/05
  • Changed armor: You can no longer cancel your attack if you hit armor frames
  • Buffed Pork: Chop grounded armor starts on frame 5, versus frame 6
  • Nerfed Onion/Garlic: Sweep hurtbox is now full height (it no longer low-profiles)
  • Nerfed Onion: Hopkick can no longer cancel into Roundhouse
  • Adjusted Onion/Garlic: Jump arc is slightly lower
  • Adjusted Pork: Caper Toss throw animation to better match normal throws
  • NOTES: With light attacks being positive on attack, certain pressure sequences became a little too strong. We approached this from two angles: nerf the attacker, and buff the defender
    • Onion/Garlic can no longer bully Beef/Pork with a Sweep that goes under their Heavy Punch
    • Onion can no longer use Hopkick to reset pushback AND get chip from Roundhouse, they will have to choose
    • Armor moves were weak to pressure, as the attacker could RAPID to make it safe. We have removed this RAPID option to make armor frames more closely match parry frames: if you guess right, the opponent cannot escape
    • Pork's Chop armor have been moved earlier so they can armor out of 2 light attacks when done back-to-back
0.41.9 2021/03/05
  • New animation: Being thrown
  • New animation: Garlic/Onion jump

  • Fixed move ordering on Frame Data menu

  • Nerfed Beef: Lemon chip reduced 40 > 30
  • Nerfed Beef: Lemon hitstun reduced 44 > 40
  • Nerfed Beef: Lemon blockstun reduced 44 > 32
  • Fixed Lemon and Swat cancels to be marked as Recovery frames (vs Startup frames) so you can now punish them with throws
  • NOTES: With the recent addition of "Indecisive Lemon" (aka empty cancel), we are trying to change Lemon from a high risk, high reward move to something that more actively shapes Beef's neutral. Watching match footage, we like that Beef players are using Lemon more, and the feints can be exciting! But we think the risk/reward is now too rewarding. Therefore, we have decreased Lemon's strength slightly, while trying to keep all the core play patterns. Lemon at close range will still easily combo and be advantageous on block, but reducing chip and stun overall should make approaching Beef a little less difficult
0.41.2 2021/02/25
  • Fixed bug where you could not reset Training Mode position with a controller
  • Fixed joystick mapping for Qanba PS3 Joysticks
0.41.1 2021/02/24

    • Scaling now starts on the third hit, rather than the fourth
    • Minimum damage is now 20%, rather than 30%
    • The pattern is now: 100, 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 20, 20 ... 20
    • Frenzy's damage has been adjusted to still scale to 200 with all five hits
0.41.0 2021/02/24
  • Buffed Noodle: By pressing Light or Heavy (or nothing) during the startup of Fist, you can now Fist at 3 different distances
  • Buffed Rice: By pressing Light during the startup of Swat, if it did not anti-air, you can cancel the slam down attack
  • Buffed Beef/Pork: Palm can now be RAPID cancelled
  • Buffed Beef: Lemon can now be "empty cancelled" by pressing Light during the startup
  • Buffed Pork: Chop now sends airborned opponents straight down for better midscreen oki
  • Buffed Onion: Hopkick can now cancel into Roundhouse by pressing Heavy

  • If game state gets desynced (due to network issues) and stays desynced for 5 seconds, the game will now disconnect with an error message

0.39.21 2021/02/12
  • Buffed Beef: Flex recovery reduced 50 > 40 frames (the parry whiff animation)
  • Fixed bug where Beef using Flex > BEEFCAKE on a BURST would whiff by making two changes:
    • Reduced BURST active frames 5 > 2. This should only affect BURST's interaction with BEEFCAKE
    • BEEFCAKE now "unfreezes time" while the attack is still active
0.39.20 2021/02/08
  • Added support for upcoming Account features
0.39.19 2021/02/08
  • Fixed bug where chip KO would not register

0.39.8 2021/01/31
  • Added distance based matchmaking!
  • When you enter CASUAL MATCH, the server guesses your location based on your IP address
  • You start with a small search range that expands every few seconds
  • By 25 seconds, you should reach max range, and start matching with anyone
  • You will match with someone when you fit inside their search range, and vice versa
  • For temporary debugging purposes, you will briefly see your distance on the calibration screen
  • If you wait longer than 35 seconds, your size on the map will start growing to help you find a match
  • If you are far from all other current players, you will become more likely to match the longer you wait
  • If you find yourself matched with someone from outside of your current search range, it's because they've been waiting a long time. This is not a bug :)
  • The algorithm is a bit more complicated than we've explained here, but these are the basic rules
  • Please give this a try and let us know if the matchmaking feels better or worse!
0.39.7 2021/01/29

0.39.1 2021/01/23

  • Lobby: Fixed bug where Spectators might not get post-KO inputs
0.39.0 2021/01/23
