Street Fighter V Receives Post Launch Update For PC And PS4

Capcom has laid out ongoing issues for Street Fighter V on PC and PlayStation 4.

As we already covered, Capcom has addressed the base connectivity issue for online play. Another issue came up for matchmaking on Battle Lounge, but as of this writing, Capcom has fixed it too. Some players are experiencing issues with their Fighter IDs getting corrupt when making accounts, and this is still under investigation.

There are a host of issues specific to PC players. We’ll summarize them below:

There are reports of crashes and stability issues. Some of these are attributed to false-positive errors from anti-virus software. Users with this issue need to add StreetFighterV.exe and the game directory to their anti-virus exclusion lists. Other crash and stability issues are under investigation.

DirectInput support is not available at this time. This means USB game controllers, many of which also work with PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, are not supported at this time. XInput controllers, meaning Xbox 360 controllers, will work just fine. Capcom recommends using programs like X360CE to remap via XInput, and they promise to add native support in the future. They also pledge to add options to remap keyboard inputs in the future.

Capcom also promises to act on fan feedback on two more requests. The only language that comes up now is based on the default for the operating system. Other language options will be added via Steam in a future patch. Switching resolutions also requires actually cycling through each resolution, but Capcom will make this easier.

Capcom ended their update with this personal message:

Street Fighter V is a living and breathing platform that will continue to improve and evolve over time with more features and content. With that being said, we’d like to assure you that we are always listening to your feedback and with your help, we will continue to find ways to make Street Fighter V better and better. So please, keep the feedback coming and thanks for your support!
