Practice Mode: Thunder Clap doesn't work in Frame Step

Title: Thunder Clap doesn’t work in Frame Step

Summary: While in frame step mode in Practice, I can’t get Rook’s Thunder Clap to work. I can successfully do it while in normal practice and then quickly change into frame step, but not if I’m already in frame step. Note I am using keyboard, not a controller.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Select Rook in Practice Mode
  2. Turn on frame step (F)
  3. Hold down step (1) and attempt to do Thunder Clap

Expected Results: Rook performs a Thunder Clap.

Actual Results: Rook continues walking backwards.

Sounds like an issue with ghosting on your keyboard, rather than a problem with the game. Your keyboard probably can’t recognize all three of the keys involved once. Probably if you jump to the other side, so that you’re using D rather than A to do the move, it will work. Or if you set various actions to different keys.

You can check ghosting problems on your keyboard at various sites online, like this one:
Try holding all 3 keys involved at once and see if they light up there.

Yep, you nailed it - it’s a problem with the keyboard. Thanks for the tip!
