    Same goes for Blackthorne on the 32X but that also has redrawn graphics that look kinda uggo... also bringing in the 32X is probably cheating.

    I have lately found that I can't play fighting games with the default SNES controller. It is incredibly difficult to do things such as quarter-circle moves. On the Genesis with the official 6-button pad tho, its no problem. Tho you could mitigate this by simply not using the official SNES controller.
    SNES button layout was never really suited for fighters the best you could get of it is using a joystick.

    The Neo Geo CD pad is my favorite controller for fighters, so I don't have a problem with using controllers with only four face buttons for fighters, but yeah, as solid as the SNES d-pad is for other purposes, it's pretty stiff for fighters.

    Most Neo-Geo games were designed around four buttons as well.

    Funny thing I actually used to be able to play King of Fighters '94 just fine on the PSP of all things--I even managed to pull off "the pretzel" in actual combat a few times--but for some reason, earlier today I tried it and I just couldn't do it. I think my hands have gotten picky. Or I'm just THAT out of practice.

    Fortunately it seems like there are adapters that let you use PS1/2 controllers on the SNES.
