I use the TCP. I encounter people online who make BLINDING combinations. Lighting fast. I wanna know if these people use buttons or TPC and if there is an advantage of using one over the other

I use config 4 on Xbox, you can use tpc and buttons and I put that to my advantage I use both sometimes at the same time.

I can throw awesome combos with the buttons or the tpc it also depends on my stamina level as well and the speed of ones fingers. If you can really get a rhythm going with the buttons or the analog you can pull them off fast.

i use config. 4 too. i usually use the buttons and only use the right joystick for haymakers and defense.

Ok I just tried config 4. What sux about buttons is that if the opening closes, you can't change your mind on the punch. And you can get parried pretty easy. Nah I prefer TPC. Just gotta work on handspeed I guess.

Faint with TPC and throw with buttons.

Config 4 is probably the best in the game. Once you're committed to a punch on either, you're committed, you can't stop in the middle of a punch. You have to learn to time the punches properly. I think you can get faster combos off with buttons than you can with TPC, unless you're super fast with that thumbstick.

Yah I know what you mean. You'll alwyas be faster with buttons than TPC but you can get a better flow and more control of the punches if you use the TPC. YEah I think Ima start using config 4

Man, f--k Fight Night and every other boxing game that came after Knockout Kings 2001. That was the best boxing game ever. That TPC sh*t is lame, it kills my thumbs. I like the new boxers and everything, but the way they had the punches and the defensive moves in Knockout Kings 2001, was simply the best in my opinion...

I'm hearing so much about KK it's a wonder why it never came out in NA or did tit?

Where you from?


Knockout kings was an arcadish boxing game...Nothing great except the list of boxers although the first knockout kings was about as good as they get. Had the best list of boxers (it had mosley at lightweight how sweet is that) It really just had a great roster and had great controls and features. The clinch was probably the best in any game you could grab and punch either to the kidney or to the back of the head. It doesnt hold up graphic wise to todays standards but the gameplay is so deep.

Plus at the end you get to see

De la hoya vs Leonard (I think) fighting each other.....Actually they are next to each other playing against each other...Nothing great but damn that game was hot for its time.

Also it was the only game in a long time to feature Joe Louis along with 37 other GREAT fighters, I cant recall one ****hole on that list aside from ButterBean and even he was playable.

Knockout Kings 2001 will always remain my favorite boxing game. I loved taking Ali and jabbing people so much that their faces bled like a woman on the pad... Good times.

m00ks, it came out in North America.

Also, Fight Night is pretty much the Knockout Kings series continued on. It's made by the same company. It's like Sega's NFL 2k series becoming ESPN football. Same game, same people, different name.

I use the config 4 also, haymakers can be pulled off pretty easy,but somehow the computer can land haymaker after haymaker, I am not a big fan of the haymaker, I had my first loss yesterday in a 2nd KD KO, I rematch the Computer and he Knock me down once and I ko him after four kd's in 6 rounds,

Is there anyway to do a haymaker using buttons

lol that would be a hack if you used haymakers with buttons. It wouldn't even be fair :D

No, you can't use a haymaker with buttons. If the computer is beating you with haymakers, you need to learn to parry better. If you huddle up, and parry all his shots, you'll beat him. Even if you're a middleweight in the light-heavy division.

I had a fight in my career that took me ten rounds to put a guy down. I just huddled up, took as few shots as I could, and uppercut the crap out of the guy every chance I got. I'd recommend doing the same if you're having difficulty with a computer opponent.

The only thing the buttons in fight night round 2 are good for are using them in combinations with the analog stick. If you use just buttons you cannot do many things such as throw haymakers.

Yeah, but if you throw more than haymakers, the buttons are infinitely better. You can combo so much faster with them.
