Advanced and Climax Cancel Buffer

The buffer window for Advanced and Climax Cancels is extremely generous and can be used to make some cancels much easier to perform, especially for supers with a big wind up before the final blow. As long as you perform the motions for the MAX Super or Climax Super and hold down the buttons for the super before the last hit, the Advanced or Climax Cancel will execute on the first possible frame.

For example, take Vanessa's Crazy Puncher super where she does 3 punches before bobbing and weaving and finishing performing an uppercut. Once she starts her weaving motion, you can input and hold down either AC for MAX Champion Puncher or CD for Infinity Puncher while not letting go of the buttons. Once she finishes her uppercut, the Advanced or Climax Cancel will launch immediately.
