    I don't know about you, but I can't really do it consistently. I can get it best when I take my thumb off the stick and flick it, but that puts it in a really odd spot to get it back on and start doing motions. Any suggestions?

    What does your D-pad look like?

    I'd suggest using that over the analogue stick.

    It's a generic XBox controller

    Same

    Trust me use the D-pad. It's much more suited to this game.

    Seems about the same for me. The timing is just giving me trouble, I guess. I'm better at shorthopping left than right though, which is odd.

    If you quickly do an input of up and then down, you should get it every single time.
