1. Introduction


     Well, Capcom has finished the next Rival Schools series. The problem
with this game is still : it's japanese. And this is not a FAQ, just a mini
translation. You will not find any movelist on this document, as this is 
only a translation of the menus, and is considered a mini-faq. By the way,
did GameSages give this game a poor review? Maybe it's because of the 
error in the simulation mode. Well anyway, enjoy. :)

     What's New :
     1.10 Fixed several translation and added new things. I never
          know there were so many fans of this game! Thanks all. :)
     1.00 First basic translation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. The menus


     The main menu consist of several bars. They're, from top to bottom :

1. Simulation Mode
   This is the simulation mode. And I can't get it to work, it shows a 
red 'no entry' sign I think (so it _is_ error). The error screen is 
translated into 'Your Playstation has been modified, operation is stopped' 
 according to YC Tan.
   There are GameShark code to get through this, however, since I don't
have a GameShark, I can't test it. But according to GameSages, 
www.cmgsccc.com and www.agscc.com here are the codes :
   D00A6CFA 1040
   800A6CFA 1000
   The simulation mode is vastly improved and is the heart of the sequel.
So .... maybe I'll buy a GameShark afterall..... maybe.

2. Story Mode / 1 Player Mode
   The usual beat 'em up game.

3. Two Player Mode
   This is the versus mode between player 1 and 2, won't show up if
the joystick isn't connected.

4. League Mode
   This one puts you in the league, and competes for the number 1 place
in the table.

5. Team Battle
   Select four person to fight on your side and your opponent's, I think.

6. Tournament Mode
   This mode allows you to compete in a tournament.

7. Double player Mode
   This is to start dual player mode in one team. The first option is
the battle mode, cooperation based, and has scores when you win or lose
the game. The second one is manual select and training for two players.

8. Training Mode
   Practice how to use the characters. Free play mode.

9. Learning Mode
   There are two options after this. The first one is [Kanji]'99. This
mode tests your skill in two parts : the number one lesson is to hit 
the opponent without getting hit by the fireballs. The number two lesson
is to block your opponent's attack nine times. I was wondering if this
can open the Simulation Mode, and it's not. 
   The second option is the usual learning mode, 6 lessons, like it used
to be in Rival Schools.

10. Extra Games
    Plays games like :
    1. Home Run
    2. Roberto's PK
    3. Roberto's Shoot
    4. Services 
    5. Sprint 
    6. Doki-Waku-Dance (bust-a-groove type dance)
    7. Watch Mode

11. Edit Mode
    Supposed to be creating new characters, but I can't get it to work yet.
Finish the 1 player mode first (must try it later on). 

12. Omake 
    There are two opinions on this menu. One says that this one is for
pocket station. The other is this :
    Everytime you beat the game, make a record, pass a test, finish mini
games, you obtain bonus points. That bonus points are used in the first
option of the Omake menu to buy cards, endings, posters, secret characters, 
the music of the game, etc. 
The second option is to view what you have bought, cards, videos (Staff 
roll, and ending), posters, music, etc.
    I think the second one is the right one. 

13. Memory Card Manager
    To save and load.

14. Options
    Edit the gameplay environment :
    CPU Difficulty
    Damage Level
    Timer Speed
    Rounds (CPU)
    Rounds (VS)
    CPU Round Kiara 
    Continue ??? Kiara 
    Dual Shock Vibration
    Sound
    Game System
    Buttons settings
    Default
    Exit

3. Next....
   I'm still playing this game, and Rival Schools 2 rocks! Thanks for all 
your support! When I can access the simulation mode, I'll be sure to 
translate it, or maybe write a FAQ... but it will be *very* rough, as 
I'm not Japanese. :)
