SOCD Resolutions on Smash Box


The Smash Box has access to what is called SOCD, or Simultaneous Opposing Cardinal Directions. Simply put, you can press Left and Right at the same time. In this post, we will overview the many ways Smash Box deals with SOCDs.

For more info on SOCDs and SOCD Resolutions, check out our intro blog post on the subject: Introduction to SOCD and Resolutions.

SOCD Resolutions

Neutral

This is the default option in the Smash Box. Whenever opposition directions are pressed, the center or "neutral" stick position is output.

Examples:

Left + Right = Neutral
Up + Down = Neutral

Second Input Priority

This resolution option will only output the opposing cardinal that you activated most recently. 

Examples: 

Holding Left -> Left + Right = Right
Holding Down -> Down + Up = Up

Second Input Controlled Priority

Similar to the above, this resolution option will only output the opposing cardinal that you activated most recently, but will deactivate the first cardinal direction you pressed until you release it again and press it again.

Examples: 

Holding Left -> Left + Right = Right

Holding Left -> Left + Right -> Left = Neutral

Holding Down -> Down + Up = Up

First Input Priority

Only available for the X-Axis, this resolution option will only output the opposing cardinal that you activated first. 

Examples:

Holding Left -> Left + Right = Left
Holding Down -> Down + Up = Down

Up Overrides Down

Only available for the Y-Axis, this resolution option will only output Up in all Up + Down inputs.

Examples:

Holding Down -> Up + Down = Up
Holding Up -> Up + Down = Up
