This is a common myth, but no, all of the stages in Street Fighter 4 are the exact same length. This has been verified independently by multiple players by frame-counting how long it takes a given character to walk across each stage, as well as by comparing move properties with known ranges.

Street Fighter IV was released in 2009, and despite their similar sounding names, is a different game to Super Street Fighter IV (2010). To make matters more confusing, Capcom released several updates to ...

It's normal for there to be just one SSFIV in your Steam Library. I also purchased all the SF DLC'S and have one game in my Library. The Ultra Edition is the last update and should be the default when you open your game. The others, like Arcade are not needed anymore because all the content is transferred into Ultra. The only bug you have is that you can'...

There are some ways to make your input easier, but not like SFxT. Here are your options: Shortcuts: Some commands have shortcuts.
