Ultra Street Fighter IV

Steam release of the game originally known as 'Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition' (SSF4AE), updated with new content, and renamed as 'Ultra Street Fighter IV' (USF4).  The new content has been made available for purchase in the form of DLC for owners of the original title.  Any who purchased USF4 after the name change should already have the DLC in their library.  DLC being optional for those original owners of SSF4AE, let this serve as the hub for those with or without the new content.

Additional Comments

The game in its standard configuration is nearly unplayable due to constant flickering. Changing the RenderingThread option in my config.ini for the game from ON to OFF works around this issue. Although performance is still great after doing this, it is possible this could cause unexpected bottlenecks. I should add performance was great regardless. If you let wine use gstreamer to handle decoding for each cut-scene, it will work (you need the "gst-libav" 32-bit plugins for your gstreamer installation). However, during that time a separate window opens that is titled "ActionMovie Window" and takes focus from the game. If you move the window opened to another monitor and give focus back to the game the cut-scene will play. Additionally, I have noticed under some circumstances the cut-scenes/intro videos may end abruptly and when that happens the audio in-game sometimes stops working. When this happens, you are no longer able to start any new matches as you will be stuck at the versus screen just before the map comes into view indefinitely.
