For more detailed explanations of how to play, you should read the section entitled, "In-Depth Information". Detailed character info can be found in the next section, "Character Movelists". ------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAQ NOTATION ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Here's a quick representation of the game's controls: [ Joystick Layout ] --------------------------------------------------- ub u uf Jump Backward Jump Up Jump Forward \ | / (up-back) (up) (up-forward) b -- n -- f Retreat / Block Neutral Approach / | \ (back) (forward) db d df Crouch Block Crouch Offensive Crouch (down-back) (down) (down forward) [ Button Layout ] ----------------------------------------------------- B C D Weak Kick Strong Punch Strong Kick A Weak Punch [ Other Notation ] ---------------------------------------------------- dir. : Any of the eight directions can be used: u (up), d (down) b (back), f (forward), ub (up back), uf (up forward) db (down back) or df (down forward). qcf : Roll the joystick from d to f (d,df,f) qcb : Roll the joystick from d to b (d,db,b) hcf : Roll the joystick from b to d to f (b,db,d,df,f) hcb : Roll the joystick from f to d to b (f,df,d,db,b) + : Press in the last direction listed and press the button listed afterward at the same time (so qcf + P means to press d,df,f, and the moment you press f, press A or C). / : Either command can be used (i.e., b / f + B means you can press back or forward while pressing B). P : Press A or C. K : Press B or D. PK : Press all buttons at once (for example, BC means to press B + C, ABCD means to press A + B + C + D). ?~? : Any range can be used (for example, charge db~df means that you can charge db or d or df. b~d~f means that you can use b, db, d, df, or f). Charge : Hold in the listed direction for 2 seconds, then push the joystick in the second direction. (air) : The move can be performed while on the ground or when jumping or otherwise airborne delay : Holding down a button delays the move being performed. empower: Holding down a button makes the move do more damage. * : The move can be canceled into a DM while Counter Mode is active. See that move's comments for more details. [ Misc. Terminology ] ------------------------------------------------- "Overhead Attacks" are moves that cannot be crouch-blocked; they must be blocked standing. All normal jumping attacks are overheads, but some mid-air special moves and command attacks aren't and can be crouch- blocked. The general trait of ground overhead attacks is that they can be performed while standing and are usually slow in coming out. "Knockdown Attacks" are those attacks that knock an opponent to the ground (or at least knock them away, in the case of mid-boss Krizalid's standing body blow attack). "Reversals" are moves that, when used normally, have no effect (they don't even hit). However, if the person using the reversal is hit by an attack, they will take no damage, and attack their opponent back. Note all attacks can be reversed, and some characters have more than one reversal that only work against one sort of attack (say, a jumping attack, or a crouching attack). There are also some character's whose reversals do hit normally (like Kyo's Nue Tsumi or Xiangfei's Esaka: Atemi Kougeki). "Counters" occur when you hit a person as they attack you. At this point, if your attack wins, you get a counter hit. If their attack beats yours anyway, they get a counter hit. There are three benefits of counter hits--one is that you recover faster, so that you have a better chance of combing / juggling your enemy after a counter hit, and another is that any body blow attack that counter hits can be canceled into a command attack, special move, or (S)DM, and stands a chance of actually hitting (normally, they can cancel but never hit). This even works in the air (In his mid-boss form, Krizalid can counterhit with a jumping body blow attack, then do his Demon Landing special for a two-hit combo). The third advantage of getting a counter is that it increases the amount of damage a move does. Usually the amount is quite small, but it tends to be a rather sizable increase for some DMs / SDMs, and certain moves do tons of added damage on a counterhit (like Ryo's Tenchi Haou Ken DM / SDM). "Guard Crushes" happen when you block too many attacks in succession, or in a short period of time. When this happens, you'll momentarily stop blocking. If your opponent Guard Crushed you with a multi-hit attack, all subsequent attacks will hit you for full damage. It's even possible for some characters to Guard Crush you with a one-hit attack, then hit you with another attack if it comes out fast enough. Guard Crushing is very useful in Counter Mode since you can cancel into (S)DMs--for example, Takuma can Guard Crush with a blocked Mouko Burai Gan, then cancel into the Ryuuko Ranbu and have it connect. [ Cancelable Attack Chart Notation ] ---------------------------------- The Cancelable Attack chart appears after each character's detailed move list. As an example, here is K's chart: Standing Stand Close Crouching Jumping Up J-Diagonal (A) 1 L - - - 1 L C S D 1 L C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - - - (B) 1 - - - - 1 L C S D 1 L C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - - - (C) 1 - - - - =e - C S D 1 - C S D 1 - - S - 1 - - S - (D) 1 - - - - 1 - C S D 1 - C S D 1 - - S - 1 - - S - (CD) 1 - - S D GC - - - - 1 - - S - This chart lists the effects of each different attack, depending on whether you press A, B, C, D, or C+D (the body blow attack), while standing far away, standing close to your enemy, crouching, jumping straight up, or jumping diagonally. Remember that for most characters (and most of their attacks), when you do a small jump (even if you do it straight up), your character's attack comes out as if you had jumped diagonally back or forward. The various criteria are as follows: 1 - the attack hits once 2 - the attack hits twice =1 - the attack has the listed abilities only on the first hit. =2 - the attack has the listed abilities only on the second hit. =e - the attack has the listed abilities on either hit (or in Krizalid's case, any hit, since his standing D hits 3 times). L - the attack can be linked into another attack (usually any attack that is marked with an "L" itself, but some characters can link a crouching A or B into moves that don't normally link, like a crouching or standing C or D attack). C - the attack can be canceled into a command attack. S - the attack can be canceled into a special move. D - the attack can be canceled into a (S)DM * - check out the following notes for this attack / set of attacks. So for example, K's standing close C reads "=e - C S D". That means that on either hit, it can be canceled into a command attack, special move, or (S)DM. Note that there are only three listings for the CD (body blow) attack. This is because body blows can only be used while standing or jumping, and they have the same effects whether you are standing near or far, or whether you are jumping up or diagonally. The listing in the middle is for a Guard Cancel Body Blow, which is why it reads 'GC' (although it seems like only Andy and Clark can cancel their Guard Cancel body blows). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ BASIC COMMANDS (for any character) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Standing Block Hold b when attacked Crouching Block Hold db when attacked Mid-Air Block Hold b / db when attacked while in air Dash / Running Tap f,f (hold f to run) Backstep Tap b,b Small Jump Tap ub~uf Normal Jump Press ub~uf Image Small Jump Tap db~df, tap ub / uf Image Normal Jump Tap db~df, press ub / uf Running Jump Press u / uf while dashing or running Throw Escape Press AB _or_ b / f + any button when thrown Down Evade Press AB when knocked to the ground Forward Slide Press AB / f + AB Dodge Attack Press any button during Forward Slide Backward Slide Press b + AB Body Blow Attack Press CD while standing or jumping Guard Cancel Slide Block, then press (b / f) + AB [costs 1 stock] Guard Cancel Attack Block, then press CD [costs 1 stock] Striker Call Press BC (usable a limited number of times) Counter Mode Activate Press ABC (lasts for about 10 counts) Armor Mode Activate Press BCD (lasts for about 5 counts) Taunt Press Start - When you block an attack, you take no damage from normal attacks, and reduced damage (block damage) from special moves and DMs / SDMs. You can tell because a blue block spark means you took no damage, while each orange block spark indicates that you lost a sliver of life from your Life Gauge. - In most cases, any move that can be done in the air can be done not only during a jump, but at anytime your feet leave the ground (such as during most characters' backsteps), or if a command attack lifts you up into the air (like Athena's Renkan Tai). - During a straight up Small Jump, most characters will perform an attack as if they had jumped diagonally. For example, Whip's jumping D, when done off a normal jump straight up, hits once. But when done off of a straight up Small Jump, she'll do the 2-hit version that she usually does when you do any kind of diagonal jump + D. This does not apply to all characters, though (for example, King uses the same animation for any kind of jumping attack, and while Maxima's straight up B will change during a small jump, the straight up C attack will not). - As for the types of jumps, the Small Jump is a short hop off the ground, while the Normal Jump goes higher and longer. The Image versions are a bit different since the height of your hop or jump stays the same, but you travel further in the direction you jumped in. Note that you cannot Image Hop or Jump straight up. The running jumps are simply high, long jumps that can be done while dashing or running forward. - The Throw Escape only works against 'normal' throws (throws that are done by pressing back or forward + C or D when close). Air throws cannot be escaped from. - Using the Down Evade makes your character leap back just as he or she hits the ground, and land on their feet, instead of crashing to the floor. This move can be used after body blow attacks, or other standard knockdown moves, like most characters' crouching D attack. - During the Forward Slide, you are semi-invincible but can still be thrown and hit by certain attacks. You can use the Dodge Attack during this move, and during the Dodge Attack only throws can hit you. When you use the Backward Slide, you'll slide back about half the distance of a Forward Slide, then move forward to your original position. However, if you don't want to move forward, you can input a special move, DM, or SDM during the backward slide to cancel the hop and attack. - The jumping and standing Body Blow Attacks are cancelable and can be interrupted with special moves or (S)DMs. However, the move you cancel them with won't connect unless the Body Blow Attack hit on a Counter (since they knock an opponent to the floor). For example, you can hit with a standing or jumping Body Blow Attack using K' and cancel into the Minutes Spike, but unless the Body Blow Attack hit as a counter, the Minutes Spike won't hit and won't combo. - While taunting, you cannot attack or move around, but you can press in any direction or press any button to cancel your taunt. Taunting has no effect (unlike Striker taunts, most of which drain energy from your opponent's Power Gauge). ========================================================================= 2. CHARACTER MOVELISTS ========================================================================= Each character movelist is composed of several parts: at the top is listed the character's name and the team they're in, followed by a short bio sheet, then their winquote and a short list of moves. After that comes a longer, more detailed list of moves. Both lists are written in this order: normal throws, command attacks, special moves, (S)DMs, and their Striker Attack. The number of hits for each move was determined using Chang as my opponent (since he's so big, you have a better chance of discovering what the total number of hits for each move actually is). After the detailed moveslist is a chart of cancelable attacks, then, if applicable notes on that character and / or lists of special move chains. At the end of each character's section is a list of their quotes when they talk / yell during the battle. If a quote is used more than once, it will just be listed along with move as (and...) after the quote itself. Under the 'When attacking: / when damaged' listing, L: means light, H: means heavy, B: means body blow attack, and S: means any special move or (S)DM. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ K' (Hero Team '99) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Fighting Style: Violence Birthday: Unknown Age: Probably between 16-18 years old Birthplace: Unknown Blood Type: Unknown Height: 183cm Weight: 65kg Hobby: None Favorite Food: Beef jerky Best Sport: None (isn't good at moving around quickly) Most Important: Nothing Dislikes: KOF (King of Fighters tournament) "Now, the finish.

Move Name: Earring Bakudan 1 Move Command: qcb + P # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 Comments: Normally Leona throws the earring at an arc, but after performing the (B) Heart Attack (whether it hits or misses), Leona will throw her earring in a different arc, in which it will bounce on the floor if her opponent is far enough away. Performing a (D) Heart Attack will make her earring tosses return to their normal arcs (again, this works even if the Heart Attack misses, or if it hits). Move Name: Earring Bakudan 2: Heart Attack Move Command: When close, b,d,db + K (repeat to trigger) # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 Comments: This move functions like a throw, but does no damage. If you connect, you'll see a sparkle on your opponent's body. A few seconds later, the earring will explode (you can make it explode at anytime by inputting the command in again, but you won't be able to combo off of it since Leona will pose afterwards). The earring will not explode if Leona blocks a hit or is damaged. Weirdly enough, you can stick this move in a combo and keep going (i.e. crouching C, b,d,db + K, Moon Slasher, earring explodes). During Counter Mode, this move can be canceled into a DM. If this move connects, you can't use Leona's Earring Bakudan 1 until the bomb explodes. Note that if you use the (B) version, whether it hits or misses, Leona's Earring Bakudan 1 attack will change in the arc it is thrown for the remainder of the round, while using the (D) version will make it revert to it's normal arc (using the D version when the arc is already normal has no effect). ------------------- [ (Super) Desperation Moves ] -------------------- Move Name: V Slasher Move Command: In air, qcf,hcb + P # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 (DM / SDM) Move Name: Rebel Spark Move Command: qcb,hcf + K # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 (DM / SDM) Move Name: Grateful Dead Move Command: qcf,qcf + P # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 (DM / SDM) ------------------------- [ Striker Attack ] ------------------------- Move Name: Killer Touch Move Command: With Leona as your striker, press BC (costs 1 stock) # of Hits: Bomb Set and Explode 2 Comments: Leona jumps in and runs forward a la the Ground Saber.

You can still move around and attack using the unused buttons while charging this move. However, you cannot dash or backstep, and if you're charging with B, you cannot use the AB slides (ditto with trying to use a CD attack while charging with D). You cannot performs special moves or DM / SDMs, either. Also, you can only charge one Ralf Kick at a time (if you hold B and D, then release one for a Ralf Kick, releasing the other one has no effect). ------------------- [ (Super) Desperation Moves ] -------------------- Move Name: Galactica Phantom Move Command: qcf,qcf + P # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 (DM / SDM) Comments: An unblockable attack.

Move Name: Zed Translation: This is just the pronounciation of the letter "Z" outside of the US. For example (for any of you who have seen the original Dragon Ball Z series), if you read the kana on the title logo, it reads "Dragon Ball Zed". Move Command: When close, b / f + C # of Hits: Heavy 1 Comments: An unblockable attack. ------------------------- [ Command Attack ] ------------------------- Move Name: Whip Shot Move Command: f + A (can perform 5 times) # of Hits: Light 1 (x5) ------------------------- [ Special Moves ] -------------------------- Move Name: Desert Eagle Move Command: b,d,db + P, tap P to fire 7 times, then reload. # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 Comments: There are two ways to use this move; one is to simply perform it and press P, while the other is to perform it and tap P rapidly, to make Whip fire continuously. Either way, once the seventh shot has been fired, performing the move again, or pressing P again (if you are already firing) makes Whip stop to reload her gun instead of attacking. This happens even if you don't fire all your shots in a row--if you fire three shots at one point in the round, then 4 shots later on, trying to shoot again will make her reload her gun. This move apparently does no damage, and has no special effects (aside from being able to hit someone lying on the ground). However, I found that after either throw (Alpha or Zed), hitting your opponent with the Desert Eagle makes them bounce far away. Doesn't seem to be that special, but at least it's something ^_^; Move Name: Assassin Strike "Code: BB" Move Command: f,d,df + P / K # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 Comments: The button used determines where Whip drops down from; A is closest to your location, D is furthest _forward_ (for example, if you have your opponent in the corner, all buttons will make you drop down in the same place).

This in itself can combo for 2 hits, in which case the move ends, or else the whip hits twice and the move ends. After this move ends (she'll keep whipping if it's blocked or misses), she'll leave using the Assassin Shot. ----------------------- [ Cancelable Attacks ] ----------------------- Standing Stand Close Crouching Jumping Up J-Diagonal (A) 1 - - - - 1 L C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - - - 1 - - - - (B) 1 - C S D 1 L C S D 1 - C S D 1 - - S - 1 - - S - (C) 2 - - - - 1 - C S D =e - C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - - - (D) 1 - - - - 1 - C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - S - =e - - S - (CD) 1 - - S D GC - - - - 1 - - - - ------------------------------ [ Notes ] ----------------------------- Whip's crouching A can hit an opponent who's on the ground, although you have to get your spacing correct so that the "arc" of the whip will smack your opponent.

Chang can perform two reversals; the one is a sneeze that does minor damage, while the second one is a backflop that does heavy damage. Unfortunately, to get the belly drop to come out, you have to use the normal sneeze counter twice (it doesn't matter if it hits or misses, as long as the sneeze animation is trigged). The third time you use this move, you'll get the backflop.

Chang randomly performs a finishing blow at the end of this move; it may be a Hien Zan, delayed backflop, standing body blow, forward roll, upward roll, or his standing B kick. Anyone seen any others? Move Name: Tekkyuu Dai Assatsu Translation: Great Iron Ball Deadly Pressure Move Command: qcf,qcf + P # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 2 (DM) Light 1 / Heavy 1 (SDM) Comments: In the DM version, Chang runs forward before doing his belly flop if you use the (C) button; this can get two hits if you're close enough. In the SDM version, Chang can not only hit while falling, but also when he hits the ground, it shakes, and you take damage no matter where you're standing. However you can crouch-block both his fall and the ground shake. Any version of the Tekkyuu Dai Assatsu can hit on the way up as well as on the way down.

They all have the same effect of lowering his enemy's Power Gauge somewhat. If his opponent is close enough when he leaps in, he'll perform a Tatsumaki Shippuu Zan. You can get more hits if Choi isn't too close, but this is difficult to arrange since he'll simply taunt if your enemy is too far away. However, it is possible to have him taunt, reducing his enemy's Power Gauge, then have the enemy get close, and he'll do the Tatsumaki Shippu Zan as well.

You can follow this move with the Hou'ou Tenbu Kyaku. During Counter Mode, it can be canceled into the Hou'ou Tenbu Kyaku as well. As long as it hits, you can repeat this move--for example, with Chang in the corner, jump straight up and hit him with the Ryuurou Shuu, then do it again for another hit, then as you're coming back down, hit him with it twice more and keep repeating until he gets dizzy.

When apart, they mean "Ryouko" or "hunting tiger", as several people pointed out to me. Even the Gamest mook uses the "Ryouko" spelling, but I still think it's a matter of preference...especially considering that "ryou" doesn't mean "to hunt", but refers to a bag that you put caught game into (like a gunnysack). Anyway, enough of that babble.... One important thing to remember when trying to supercancel from Jhun's stance attacks (like the Mouko Geki: Naka, Shuusou Kyaku: Joudan, or Taikyoku Hi, etc.), is that you can't cancel unless you release your 'stance' button (A for Soshuu Jin stance, B for Ryouko Jin stance), then quickly input the command for the DM before the attack you're performing ends. From Clarence comes this neat, if weird combo: go into the Soshuu Jin stance, and with your opponent in the corner, enter standing C, u + C, then press D (in other words, Shuusou Kyaku: Gedan, Shuusou Kyaku: Joudan, Taikyoku Ha) for a three-hit combo. Does good damage, too, especially if you preceed the whole thing with an (A) Haiki Geki (hold the button to enter the Soshuu stance). I recently found a glitch for Jhun; start up Counter Mode, go into the Ryouko Jin stance, press D for the Taikyoku Hi, then quickly release B and supercancel the Taikyoku Hi into the Hou'ou Ressou Kyaku. After the DM has finished, Jhun will be able to walk though his opponent for the rest of the round. However, if you throw your opponent, use the Taikyoku Hi again, or do the forward or backward slide, the glitch will end. As of version 0.3, there have been some changed regarding Jhun's "Soshuu" moves. Originally at SNK's page, he was listed as having three attacks: Shuusou Kyaku: Joudan (press u + C) Shuusou Kyaku: Chuudan (press C) Shuusou Kyaku: Gedan (press d + C) Obviously, the d + C version didn't work. Recently, SNK of Japan updated it's page, and now the d + C move is gone (since it never worked in the game, anyway), but the standing C attack (formerly the "Chuudan" version), is now called "Shuusou Kyaku: Gedan". Hard to follow, isn't it? ---------------------- [ Special Move Chains ] ----------------------- 1. Weak Haiki Geki -> Soshuu stance Weak Kuu Sajin -> Soshuu stance Ryouko Jin -> Kirikae Kougeki -> Soshuu stance -> Kirikae Dousa -> Soshuu stance Soshuu Jin -> Soshuu stance While in the Soshuu stance you can do the following: - Walk b / f (hold b / f) - Dash / backstep (tap b,b / f,f) - Use a body blow attack (press C+D) - Shuusou Kyaku: Joudan (while holding A, u + C) - Shuusou Kyaku: Gedan (while holding A, press C) - Taikyoku Ha (while holding B, press D) - Kirikae Dousa (while holding A, hold B and release A) - Kirikae Kougeki (while holding A, b / f + B [hold B and release A]) Using either of the Kirikae moves will put you in the Ryouko stance if you hold B. With the Kirikae Dousa, not holding B just makes you flip for a second--it's pointless, unless you like making Jhun dance around :) If you don't hold B during the Kirikae Kougeki, Jhun will make the attack but stay in the Soshuu stance once he recovers. 1. Ryouko Geki -> Ryouko stance Weak Mangetsu Zan -> Ryouko stance Soshuu Jin -> Kirikae Kougeki -> Ryouko stance -> Kirikae Dousa -> Ryouko stance Ryouko Jin -> Ryouko stance While in the Ryouko stance you can do the following: - Walk b / f (hold b / f) - Dash / backstep (tap b,b / f,f) - Use a body blow attack (press C+D) - Hiko Geki: Ue (while holding B, u + C) - Shuuko Geki: Naka (while holding B, press C) - Shuuko Geki: Shimo (while holding B, press d + C...doesn't work?) - Taikyoku Hi (while holding B, press D) - Kirikae Dousa (while holding B, hold A and release B) - Kirikae Kougeki (while holding B, b / f + A [hold A and release B]) Using either of the Kirikae moves will put you in the Soshuu stance if you hold A. With the Kirikae Dousa, not holding A just makes you flip for a second--it's pointless, unless you like making Jhun dance around :) If you don't hold A during the Kirikae Kougeki, Jhun will make the attack but stay in the Ryouko stance once he recovers. If you're in Counter Mode, you can supercancel the Shuuko Geki or Taikyoku Hi into a DM (release B / D after the corresponding move hits, or else you can only use one button for either of Jhun's DMs. For example, if I do the Taikyoku Hi, I can then enter qcf,qcf + D for Jhun's Hou'ou Ressou Kyaku, but I couldn't do the B version unless I quickly released B during the Taikyoku Hi and input the command, qcf,qcf + B). Don't worry, you can release B during a special move and you won't immediately return to your normal stance). --------------------------- [ Quote List ] --------------------------- Round entry (1st): "Saa, hajime mashouka?"

Also, if you notice, they spell Krizalid as "Krizarid" when he's your Striker. :) ----------------------- [ Cancelable Attacks ] ----------------------- Standing Stand Close Crouching Jumping Up J-Diagonal (A) 1 - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - (B) =e - - S - =e - - S - =e - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - (C) 1 - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - (D) 3 - - - - =e - - S - *1 - - S - 1 - - S - 1 - - S - (CD) 1 - - S - GC - - - - 1 - - S - * If blocked, this move hits twice and can cancel on either hit. ------------------------------ [ Notes ] ----------------------------- Krizalid cannot crouch (hence the low kick attacks). He still has all the other abilities of normal characters, though (taunting, calling a striker, sliding, using body blow attacks, using guard cancel moves, etc.) Obviously, he has no DMs or SDMs, so he has nothing to cancel into from his special moves if Counter Mode is used. Note that this version of Krizalid will do his standing B kick when you call in a Striker character (the Striker still appears, but it can be hard to combo if you accidently hit with the standing B). However, you can combo off of the standing B as if it were a normal kick--making this version of Krizalid the only character who can cancel into a special move from his Striker call animation :) Man, SNK's page kind of ticks me off. It was hard enough trying to make a sensible translation of Bao's bio, but then they put up Krizalid's, and under his favorite food section, it says "butter sand cracker lifeguard". I assumed that "lifeguard" should have been under his hobby section, but "butter sand cracker" had me stumped until Gunsmith came along and gave me the proper translation. Either that, or Krizalid is a cannibal with a penchant for eating lifeguards and sandwiches for lunch ^_^; --------------------------- [ Quote List ] --------------------------- Round entry (any): "Fufu-!"

The (D) version can hit twice if it is blocked, otherwise, it knocks an opponent down. ------------------------- [ Special Moves ] -------------------------- Move Name: Tuhon Rage Move Command: qcf + P # of Hits: Light 3 / Heavy 3 Comments: The (B) version of this move has a longer range than the (D) version. Both can reflect fireballs of any kind! Move Name: Lethal Impact Move Command: qcf + K # of Hits: Light 1,1 / Heavy 1,1 (first hit does no damage) Comments: Either this move has really high priority, or the first hit goes through attacks...at least, CPU Krizalid always catches me with this attack, no matter what move I'm doing (even special moves). If this move is blocked, the falling leg part of the recovery animation can hit as an overhead attack. During Counter Mode, this move can be canceled into a DM on the first hit only.

Move Name: Desperate Moment Move Command: hcb + P # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 Comments: This move does no damage (unless blocked), and makes your opponent switch sides with you. Can follow with Moment Penetration. Move Name: Moment Penetration Move Command: b / f + P after Desperate Moment connects # of Hits: Light 1 / Heavy 1 Comments: This move requires a bit of timing, as it must be input as Krizalid switches places with your opponent. The easiest way to do it is just hold b or f while tapping Punch repeatedly. ------------------- [ (Super) Desperation Moves ] -------------------- Move Name: Desperate Overdrive Move Command: qcf,hcb + P # of Hits: Light 21 / Heavy 21 (DM) Light 33 / Heavy 33 (SDM) Comments: Yamazaki, eat your heart out. ;) Move Name: End of Heaven Move Command: qcb,hcf + P # of Hits: Light 3,2 / Heavy 3,2 (DM) Comments: The pillar of fire hits three times, and the flaming "X" thrown afterwards hits twice for five hits total. Move Name: End of Eden Move Command: qcb,hcf + P # of Hits: Light 3,15 / Heavy 3,13 (SDM) Comments: The pillar of fire hits three times, but if you hit your opponent with it, the 13-hit rush will miss. Considering the mad damage that the rush does, I suggest doing the move from afar so that the rush hits them (from a full life bar, it leaves them pretty much dead). ------------------------- [ Striker Attack ] ------------------------- If you attempt to call Krizalid, he may not appear, or else you can just see half of his body on the far end of the screen, but he can't be hit, won't do anything, and won't leave (even if you do another Striker call). Also, if you notice, they spell Krizalid as "Krizarid" when he's your Striker. :) ----------------------- [ Cancelable Attacks ] ----------------------- Standing Stand Close Crouching Jumping Up J-Diagonal (A) 1 - C S D 1 - C S D =e - C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - - - (B) 1 - C S D 1 - C S D =e - C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - - - (C) =e - C S D =e - C S D =e - C S D 2 - - - - 2 - - - - (D) =e - C S D =e - C S D 1 - C S D 1 - - - - 1 - - - - (CD) 1 - C S D GC - - - - 1 - C S D ------------------------------ [ Notes ] ----------------------------- Note that Krizalid's far standing D is _not_ an overhead or knockdown attack in his final form. Only the coat-wearing Krizalid has a standing D that when done from afar, acts as an overhead and knockdown attack. Also, he does a normal (non-cancelable) pose when you call in a Striker, unlike the coat-wearing version, which does a standing B kick. Krizalid cannot crouch (hence the low kick attacks). He still has all the other abilities of normal characters, though (taunting, calling a striker, sliding, using body blow attacks, using guard cancel moves, etc.) Since he has (S)DMs, he can also cancel special moves into DMs in Counter Mode, just like other characters. All the name spellings were taken from SNK of Japan's page. Note that while "Tuhon Rage" is the actual move name, he says "Typhon Rage!" ('Typhon' is a Greek god). Oh yeah, and from Clarence comes another combo, and this time it's an infinite! Do the Desperate Moment, then hit your opponent with an attack (standing C and D work nicely), then do the Desperate Moment, and repeat ad infinitum. As it wasn't bad enough that Krizald has an infinite, doing this combo will earn you lots of Power Gauge energy, so you can finish it off with a DM, if you want. Note that even though the rush counter doesn't keep going up, it's still unescapable. --------------------------- [ Quote List ] --------------------------- Round entry (1st): "Meniyaki tsukete shinugaii...!" vs. K' "Yattemiro, clone fuzei ga!" vs. Whip "Anata to tatakau koto ninarutohana (A) button pose: "Konna mono de katterunoka?"

End of Heaven / Eden "Mise teyaru, warega chikara o!!" ========================================================================= 3. IN-DEPTH INFORMATION ========================================================================= ------------------------------------------------------------------------ THE LIFE GAUGE AND POWER GAUGE ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Life Gauge is located at the top of the screen. It lowers when you are damaged, and when it is empty, your character has been defeated and you must use a new one. If all three characters on your team are defeated, the game is over. For each round you survive, your Life Gauge fills up a little bit, depending on how well you fought. At the start of each new battle, or if you end up losing a round, your new character will start off with a full life gauge. When your Life Gauge has been nearly emptied, it will flash red; this means that you will now perform SDMs instead of DMs if you have any stocks and input a DM command (see below). The Power Gauge is now located below your Life Gauge. The Power Gauge fills up in several ways: by taking damage, performing special moves, and hitting your enemy. Taking damage earns you the least energy, while performing a special which hits your enemy earns you the most. Command attacks, normal throws, (S)DMs, Striker attacks, and certain special moves will not add energy to your Power Gauge, though. Once the gauge is full, you gain one stock, and the gauge empties. You can hold three stocks total (1 - green, 2 - blue, 3 - red). Stocks can be used to perform DMs (Desperation Moves). There are also SDM attacks--these are performed just like DMs, but in addition, your Life Gauge must be extremely low (you can tell when it's low enough because it will flash red). When your Life Gauge is flashing, you cannot perform DMs, only SDMs. Just having a flashing gauge doesn't give you any special abilites, either--you must have at least one stock to make your flashing Life Gauge useful. In the Team modes, Power Gauge energy and stocks aren't carried over if you lose, only if you win (so if Terry has 1 stock and half a power gauge, and beats Joe, who has 2 stocks and 1/3rd of a power gauge, then Terry keeps his energy, but the next person up after Joe, Chin Gentsai, starts off with nothing). In Single Mode, both characters keep any gauge energy / stocks they have earned throughout the rounds. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ TYPES OF ATTACKS AND MOVES ------------------------------------------------------------------------ [ Basic Attacks ] ----------------------------------------------------- Everyone has these moves--they're done by simply pressing P or K. For most characters, pressing P or K while standing, crouching, or jumping will make the attack come out differently. Attacks also change if you're standing close to your enemy and attack, or if you attack from far away. Basic attacks don't do a lot of damage, but they have some special features. Some basic attacks can hit more than once, while others may knock an opponent down and leave them lying on the floor (this would be crouching D for most characters). Also, each character has a few basic attacks that can be canceled into command attacks or special moves. [ Command Attacks ] --------------------------------------------------- Every character has at least one command attack, except for Ralf (poor sucker). Command attacks are performed by pressing in one direction + a button (like b + A, or df + B), and they always look the same no matter where you are when you perform them. Also, they can only be done while standing (some characters can do their command attack from a crouch, if the move is done by inputting df + a button). Command attacks can be used on their own, but some can also be canceled into from a basic attack, and some can cancel themselves into a special move or a (S)DM. This in itself is a useful enough feature, but some command attacks also have special properties, namely the ability to act as a knockdown or overhead attack. However, there is a catch. Command attacks with special properties cannot cancel into special moves or (S)DMs...however, if you cancel into a command attack, they lose their special property and can be canceled normally. Let's look at this example with Takuma: - Takuma's Oni Guruma is an overhead attack. Even if he hits an opponent with it, he cannot cancel out of it. - If he does a standing C, then combos that into the Oni Guruma, it no longer acts as an overhead (i.e., if his opponent crouch blocked the standing C, the Oni Guruma would be blocked as well, instead of hitting). - However, since he canceled into the Oni Guruma, he can now cancel it into a special move or (S)DM. In our example, he could hit an opponent with a standing C, then do the Oni Guruma, and cancel that into, say, the Ko'ou Ken, or Ryuuko Ranbu. The same rule would apply to the rest of Takuma's moves, since they all have special abilities (his Kawara Wari is an overhead, his Hisha Otoshi can destroy bullets, and his Keima Uchi can hit an opponent on the ground). The general idea is that, if a command attack has a special feature (overheads or knockdowns), it must be comboed into if you want to cancel from it. Otherwise, you should be able to cancel it into a special move just fine (but like I said earlier, not all command attacks can be canceled from--see each character's move list below for more information). This holds true for most characters, but there are some exceptions (Maxima's Shisaku command attack has no special abilities, but it can't be canceled into a special move or (S)DM unless you cancel into it from a basic move). Also, keep in mind that not all command attacks can be canceled into or from, even those with or without special properties. For example, Benimaru's Jackknife Kick has no special properties and can be canceled into a special move or (S)DM. However, Clark's Stomping, which has no special properties, either, cannot cancel into anything else even though it was canceled into from a basic attack (say, his standing A or C). And Yuri's En Yoku, which is an overhead attack, can't be canceled into even if you canceled into it with a basic attack (and even though this no longer makes it an overhead)! [ Special Moves ] ----------------------------------------------------- Every character has their own set of special moves (some characters have similar specials, like Kyo and Iori's Oniyaki). Special moves can be canceled into from basic attacks or command attacks, and in some cases, they can be interrupted into DMs or SDMs. Usually this is only in Counter Mode, but, for example, Kim can cancel his Haki Kyaku into his Hou'ou Kyaku (S)DM normally. Special moves generally do more damage than basic or command attacks and have all sorts of special properties, such as being overheads, or knockdown attacks, or being unblockable, etc. [ Desperation Moves and Super Desperation Moves] ---------------------- Desperation Moves (DMs) are attacks that can only be used when you have a free stock to expend (or you're in Counter Mode). Super Desperation Moves (SDMs) can only be used when you have a flashing red Life Gauge and at least one unused stock to spend. DMs do a lot of damage and can have special properties (for example, Iori's Saku Tsumagushi is an overhead), while SDMs do the most damage of all and are generally superior to DMs. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ COMBOS AND CANCELING ------------------------------------------------------------------------ These two terms are quite different from each other. A combo means a string of attacks that, after the first hit, cannot be escaped from. As an example, Kasumi's standing D, Hiji Ate, (C) Tatsumaki Souda, (B) Hakusan Tou is a 9-hit combo. Once Kasumi connects with the standing D, her opponent is unable to avoid the rest of the hits. Obviously this isn't true if you're in Armor Mode, since you never go into hitstun, but you get the idea. Canceling is what happens in combos (and in other cases). It's when the animation of a certain move or attack is canceled and the animation of the next move takes place. An example would be when Yuri does the standing C attack into the Yuri Chou Upper--the "recovery" frames for her standing C are omitted and she goes directly into the Yuri Chou Upper. However, canceling isn't the same as comboing. For example, as you know from reading the command attack section, you have to cancel into a command attack in order to make it become cancelable itself, in most cases. While this could be done as a combo (recalling the Takuma example, standing C, Kawara Wari is a combo in which the standing C animation is canceled into the Kawara Wari), it could also be done as a cancel. Takuma can hit with his standing A, then input the Hisha Otoshi, and the standing C's animation will be canceled. However, as you will notice, the two hits do not combo--the opponent can block or evade between the hits, and the rush combo meter (which shows up whenever you do a combo) will not appear. Yet because it's a cancel, Takuma can now interrupt the Hisha Otoshi with a special move or (S)DM. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ COUNTER MODE AND ARMOR MODE ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Advanced and Extra Modes of previous KoF games have been removed. Now everyone has the same basic set of moves--and they gain new abilities by using the new Counter Mode and Armor Mode, both of which are described in detail below. [ Counter Mode ] ------------------------------------------------------ Counter Mode is activated by pressing ABC. It costs 3 stocks to use, and when activated, your character will pose momentarily and flash red for a short period of time (indicated by the timer at the top of the screen). During this time you have no Power Gauge and cannot amass Power Gauge energy or stocks. Even though your Power Gauge disappears, you can use the Guard Cancel Attack or Guard Cancel Slide (in either direction) as many times as you want. While in Counter Mode, all your attacks inflict more damage. And even though you have no Power Gauge, you can perform DMs infinitely--no stocks are required. Since you can't collect stocks, you can't use SDMs, though. Furthermore, you can also cancel the Dodge Attack into command attacks, special moves, and DMs, just like a normal punch or kick. A unique feature of Counter Mode is that you can interrupt a special move with a DM, the same way you might cancel a normal attack into a special move. For example, you can do Joe's Tiger Knee into a Screw Upper. However, not all moves can cancel into DMs; for instance, Joe's C Hurricane Upper could be used instead, but not his A Hurricane Upper. The timing also tends to be very exact (You can only cancel from Kyo's Hikigane into either of his SDMs between the first and second hit). If a character has a mid-air special move and a mid-air DM, they can perform DM cancels in air, too (Choi can cancel his Hishou Kyaku into the Rinkaiten Toppa DM, for example). However, on the downside, doing normal combos is harder since there is a delay when you activate a DM. For example, Kasumi can normally combo her standing D kick into the A Chou Kasane Ate DM. However, during Counter Mode, the delay added to the DM's startup time is so great that it won't combo (although she could always do C Tatsumaki Souda into A Chou Kasane Ate instead). I personally think that SNK could have put a little more thought into this feature--you have characters like Athena, who has multiple mid-air moves that can be canceled into either of her DMs (since they can both be done in air), compared to the poor saps like Robert and Chang (who have only one special that can be canceled into a DM, and in Chang's case, it won't combo since his move, the Tekkyuu Funsai Geki, knocks the opponent away). It's not exactly balanced, here ;) Once this mode ends, your Power Gauge will not reappear for a few seconds, and you will still be unable to collect energy / stocks until it reappears. [ Armor Mode ] -------------------------------------------------------- Armor Mode is activated by pressing BCD. It costs 3 stocks to use, and when activated, your character will pose momentarily and flash yellow for a short period of time (indicated by the timer at the top of the screen). During this time you have no Power Gauge and cannot amass Power Gauge energy or stocks. Even though your Power Gauge disappears, you can use the Guard Cancel Attack or Guard Cancel Slide (in either direction) as many times as you want. While in Armor Mode, all your attacks inflict more damage (I think a little less than in Counter Mode, though). You also take less damage from attacks. Furthermore, the Dodge Attack will knock down an opponent, just like the Body Blow Attack (of course, you can't cancel it into another attack, though). Another feature of Armor Mode is that you take no damage from blocking special moves, DMs, or SDMs! Although you cannot use DMs or SDMs, you cannot be hit out of an attack--an opponent's attack can still push you back, but you will continue your attack instead of going into your 'hit' animation. This doesn't apply to attacks that knock you down to the ground or up into the air, though. The big downside to Armor Mode is that it lasts about 1/3rd as long as Counter Mode, and at the costs of all your stocks, that's not exactly a fair deal. In any case, once this mode ends, your Power Gauge will not reappear for a few seconds, and you will still be unable to collect energy / stocks until it reappears. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ THE STRIKER SYSTEM ------------------------------------------------------------------------ A new addition the KoF series is the 'Striker System'. When you pick the characters for your team, you get to pick four characters--three to fight with and one who becomes your striker. After selecting your characters, you get to choose the order they fight in; this is done by pressing the corresponding button for each character. The last character you pick becomes the striker. You can reassign who will be the striker for each new battle. For example: 1. I pick Shingo, Takuma, Iori, and Xiangfei. 2. I get to pick the order of fighting: A - Shingo If I press C,A,D,B at the order screen, then B - Takuma Iori goes first, then Shingo, then Xiangfei. C - Iori For the entire match, Takuma will be my D - Xiangfei striker. 3. If I win the battle (all 3 rounds), then I get to redo my order for the next battle--if I input B,D,A,C, then my order would be Takuma, Xiangfei, and Shingo. Iori would be my striker for the whole match. So how are Strikers used? You'll notice at the bottom of the screen, there is a picture of your striker and your Striker stocks--you start off with three. At anytime during the battle, you can press BC, and your character will pose, while your Striker leaps onscreen, performs an action, taunts, then leaps away. Each time you call in a striker, you lose one stock. Once you're out of stocks, pressing BC has no effect. Each time you lose a character, you gain an extra stock--this means that you can have 4 stocks total if your first character loses, and 5 stocks total when you're on your third character. Strikers all have various powers and effects. For example, when using Ralf as a striker, he'll dive down using his Kyuukouka Bakudan Punch, perform his Galactica Phantom, then leave. The Galactica Phantom itself is blockable, and it does less damage than the actual DM attack. In fact, all Striker attacks do a limited amount of damage. The reason why they're so toned down is because you recover while your Striker is still attacking--for example, if you call in Robert to do his Ryuuren Moushuu, you'll recover fast enough to hit your opponent while Robert is socking them as well. This allows you to attack or even combo your opponent off of your Striker attack. So while the Striker damage is low and they often have faults (like being blockable, slow, etc.), the potential for combos and heavy damage is still there. However, not all Strikers attack. Kensou will appear and eat a meat bun, giving you back a small amount of life. Other characters only attack under certain situations--Choi normally appears and taunts, draining his opponent's Power Gauge, but if his opponent is close enough, Choi will do a Tatsumaki Shippuu Zan instead. Furthermore, some Striker's attacks vary depending on the actions of your opponent. Case in point; if your enemy is in mid-air when you call in Jhun as a Striker, he'll do a Kuu Sajin. If they're on the ground, he'll do the Hiko Geki. Distance can also be a factor; in the above example with Kensou, you won't regain life unless you're standing close to him. And if you call in Mai as a striker, she won't attack unles her opponent is close by when she shows up; otherwise she'll just taunt (although that does lower your opponent's Power Gauge). Probably the most important thing when using a Striker is remembering distance and effect. Takuma's Striker Attack goes all the way across the screen, so you don't have to worry about how close your opponent is. However, Clark's doesn't, so you need to make sure your opponent is no further than half a screen away from you or Clark's Striker attack will miss entirely. For characters that must be close to attack, make sure that your opponent isn't able to hit them. If your opposition does hit a Striker character, they won't attack and will just leap off screen (and it still wastes a stock). The only exception is Kasumi, who taunts normally, but if hit, she will catch her opponent and injure them. All Striker attacks are explained in detail in the moveslist section, above. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ROULETTE ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Just as in '98, you can randomly select your teammates using the large Roulette square in the middle of the player select screen. If you want all team members to be randomly chosen, just choose the roulette box, or you can pick 1 to 3 characters, then use the roulette to make the remaining characters random (since each team is composed of four members now - three playable fighters and one striker). Not only does the CPU pick a random character for you to use, but this changes after each battle. If I chose King, Chin, and used Roulette to get Maxima and Ralf, then in the next battle I would still have King and Chin but would have two different remaining characters. Keep in mind that Roulette only determines which characters you'll get, not the order that they fight in (that's still up to you). If Kyo and / or Iori have become playable, it's possible to get them through the Roulette as well. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ CONTINUE SERVICE ------------------------------------------------------------------------ If all three characters lose and you lose the battle, you always have the option of continuing. If you do so, the CPU will give you an advantage to better your odds the second time around (for one battle only, though). The options are as follows: Press A : All enemies only have 1/3rd of their Life Gauge Press B : You have unlimited Power Gauge stocks for the next battle. Press C : You have unlimited Striker stocks for the next battle. Press D : Nothing (play normally with no advantages). I don't believe there's any penalty for using the Continue Service, although it may lower your Battle Score. ========================================================================= 4. MISCELLANEOUS ========================================================================= ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SECRETS AND TRICKS ------------------------------------------------------------------------ [ Show Order Select ] ------------------------------------------------ For whatever reason, after you've selected your characters and are picking the order in which they fight and who will be the Striker, you can press and hold Start to show your selections to your opponent (instead of displaying a number, it'll show the character's face). Kinda pointless considering that the game automatically displays your fighting order and designated striker after the order select anyway, but hey, it's a trick, and it's in the game, so it gets a mention here. [ Enable Krizalid in Either Form ] ------------------------------------ As of yet, there is no real code to play as Krizalid that has been found. If you have the ROM set (don't ask me about it, please), then you can always use Lick Guy's trainer, which is found at . This cool program allows you to, among other things, play as either form of Krizalid. [ Enable Kyo / Iori ] ------------------------------------------------ This code is not needed for the Neo*Geo home cart, which will already have Kyo and Iori available. Anyway, to enable Kyo and / or Iori: - Start up a Team Battle game and highlight the ? box (the Roulette), and let it pick all your characters. At some point, if you get at least three of the characters listed below in your team, win the battle with that team (you can beat the CPU, or the second player): For Kyo: Benimaru, K', Kyo-1, Kyo-2, Maxima, Shingo, or Whip. For Iori: Athena, Bao, Jhun, Kasumi, Kim, Leona, or Xiangfei. - Once you win the battle with the proper members in your team, the code to unlock either Kyo or Iori will appear once the battle is over; It shows up in the upper left corner of the screen while your character's win quote is being displayed, and looks like this: IORI (or KYO) START + [ ? ] +. I had gotten the Iori code requirements fulfilled first, then the Kyo requirements, but instead of displying both names, it just said KYO START + [ ? ] +. Anyway, at this point, you don't have to go on and beat the game--it's alright if you lose. - Once you return to the title screen, you'll notice that a mark has appeared at the bttom center of the screen if you fulfilled Kyo's requirement (or an mark for Iori, or a mark if you fulfilled both requirements). - Anyways, once you have the appropriate mark, start a new game, and move to the Roulette. Hold Start, then enter the following code: For Kyo: Press left, right, up, left, down, right. For Iori: Press right, left, up, right, down, left. - The corresponding character will become playable the moment you press in the last direction (the little sun or moon box will simply change to the portrait of Kyo or Iori with no fanfare or anything). This code has been fully tested by yours truly, so use it to your heart's content :) Special thanks to IorI for helping me perform this code, and for giving me some corrections as well. [ Fight Kyo / Iori ] ------------------------------------------------- Your Battle Score determines who you can fight. If after beating Krizalid, it's at 200 or higher, you get to fight Iori (I haven't tried this myself). If it's at 280 or higher, you get to fight Kyo (this I've managed to do). The only problem with this code is that you have to have to use one of the 'original' teams (such as: Ryo, Robert, Yuri, Takuma, or Leona, Ralf, Clark, Whip). You can't make the team up of varying members (so there's no chance of fighting Kyo or Iori while using Kyo or Iori, in other words). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ GAME OPTIONS ------------------------------------------------------------------------ There are several modes of gameplay you can choose from. TEAM PLAY lets you make up a team and fight the CPU, while SINGLE PLAY does the same thing, but with just two characters. TEAM VS. and SINGLE VS. work in the same manner, but for two players to fight each other. Finally, SINGLE ALL lets you pick two characters and fight everybody else. As for the game's OPTIONS, they aren't too hard to figure out. The notable ones are FLASH, which when turned off, eliminates the white flashes you see during some moves and SDMs, not to mention the red and white flickering that occurs when you beat the last member of the team you're fighting, and DISP. CUT, which removes the Life Gauge, Power Gauge, and Timer from the screen (your names, portraits, and other messages will still appear). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ DIP SWITCH INFORMATION ------------------------------------------------------------------------ All the information in this section was written and contributed by IorI. At his request, I have rewritten some of it for clarity. Please don't ask me about the dip switches since I don't have a modified system myself and can't verify any of this information. Anyway, here's what IorI has to say: "These dip switches are only accessible on a modified Neo-Geo system (arcade or home). These systems have a special bios called debug bios, the same bios that SNK development teams use. To access the DIP Main Menu at any time, press 2P COIN (or SELECT) + 2P C Button at the same time. To move into the menu you'll have to use the directions to access (up) and exit (left) the options, and you'll have to use the buttons to move between selections (A, B,...). The interesting option is the "Dip debug switches". Dip debug switches are two consecutive bytes allocated in Neo-Geo RAM that cause special effects in game. Each bit is a flag that activates a different option. These are the options I have discovered: "Dip 1.1. : It puts a character sprite on the middle-low side of the screen, with a weird menu behind it. I'm unable to use the menu (on KoF '96, holding START while using the controls worked...) "Dip 1.2.: Sprite areas and hit areas appear into green and white squares. Very useful. "Dip 1.3.: This dip switch has several effects: 1. Since activated, until START is pressed, the last compilation date of the game will appear on the middle-low side of the screen. 2. Instead of pressing START, pressing button B will display a special, weird and interesting menu called "Throw offset edit". Using that menu you'll can watch all the characters and all of his movements, and, supposedly you can edit his/her throws (I wasn't able to get it to work). 3. Instead of point 2, pressing C or D will display a sound/music test menu. 4. On character select screen, If you hold your START button while selecting ALL 4 characters, the first character of your team will be Krizalid (first form). He will appear on order select screen like a weird K'. 5. If you hold your SELECT (or COIN) button while selecting ALL 4 characters, the first character of your team will be Krizalid (second form). He will appears on order select screen like a weird Maxima. "Dip 1.4.: A weird menu appears on the middle of the combat. I'm not sure how to use it or what it's for. "Dip 1.5.: Weird flag indicators (useless for people like us who aren't KoF '99 programmers). "Dip 1.6.: Infinite life bar, DMs turn into SDMs. "Dip 1.7.: No effect known, if any. "Dip 1.8.: It has several options. On How to Play screen: - Press START + B to display a menu on which you can change the text nationality (japanese text even in american/european versions!) and to see all game demo sequences: sequence before, between and after Krizalid, endings, intro and so on). To see the end that you want, you'll need to change the indicators: 1ST Char: 00 00 2ST Char: 00 00 3ST Char: 00 00 4ST Char: 00 00 These are the four characters you "have", the first pair of zeros are the number of your character, and the second pair of zeros are the colour of your character (00 or 01). To automatically select the predefined (and two more weird teams with no ending...) ending teams, press button D. After this, press button A to enter the sequence selection menu. When selecting "ending", you'll can choose which character will "beat" Krizalid. - Press START + C to access a totally weird menu called Motion Seq Edit. In this menu, you can choose a determinated character or object (you'll have to choose the palette index to display it correctly), load it one of the eight slots you'll have and edit a tricky predefined motion with it. Then you'll can see the motion you created....-_- (yeah, I know). But this menu has a programmer's joke. If, on the main menu, you press SELECT, Choi will appear bouncing around the screen, and if you press A button a 0 will begin to fall since the top of the screen, while Choi runs around desperately trying to catch it (and he gets angry if doesn't)! It's like a sophisticated screen saver. "Dip 2.1.: Game caracteristics edit menu. I'm not sure what it does. "Dip 2.2.: CPU gets rid of 1P control. "Dip 2.3.: CPU can't block. "Dip 2.4.: Display the Ability Points on real time. Very useful. "Dip 2.5.: More weird flags. "Dip 2.6.: A menu with two options: Play and code. Maybe it changes the music and sound effect while playing...? "Dip 2.7.: Second player plays instead CPU (yes, another system to play with Krizalid) "Dip 2.8.: No effect known, if any." ------------------------------------------------------------------------ LIST OF SPECIAL INTROS ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Below is a list of all known special intros, based on the list of special intros found in Gunsmith's neato KoF '99 FAQ (plus a few of my own additions and corrections).

SIE KENSOU vs. ATHENA ASAMIYA - Athena bows towards the screen, then sticks an arm up in the air while acting very cheerful.

AUTHOR'S NOTE ========================================================================= ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SPECIAL THANKS ------------------------------------------------------------------------ I couldn't have written this FAQ without help from the following people: James Kuroki - Gotta give this guy a big hand for sending me a bunch of Japanese spelling corrections from Neo Geo Freak magazine. Luis Boix - For correcting my Ralf Striker mistake. IorI - For helping me with Krizalid's bio, and for some supercancel info., cancelable mid-air attack info, and lots of other stuff. Also wrote and contributed the entire section on the dip switches. Thanks! (v0.3) For additional information on enabling Kyo and Iori. Mao (i.am/sheila) - For helping me out with this FAQ, and for some Yuri information taken from her great Yuri guide. Kasumi Himura, Ken Masters (and about a thousand other people) - For telling me how the FLASH option works. Cyril Caniot - For some Krizalid info. and corrections for the numbering sequences for Shingo, Kyo, and Iori. LickGuy (fly.to/exp) - He made the excellent KoF '99 trainer that I used to check all my Krizalid info., etc (it can be found at his page). Gunsmith (w3.to/wu-tech) - Some information was checked using his amazing KoF '99 FAQ, and the list of intro poses was taken initially from his FAQ. The method to fight Kyo and Iori, as well as enable them, also used info. from his FAQ as well. (v0.2) For the Heart Attack -> Earring Bakudan arc change info, Chang's sneeze counter info., and info. on Clark's cancelable CD attack. A lot of the new information in the v0.2 update was taken from the KoF '99 Gamest Mook scans he has up at his site, too. (v0.3) For Bao's triangle jump. SNK of Japan (www.neogeo.co.jp) - All move commands and move names taken from their page. (v0.3) Correct method to enable Kyo and Iori taken from their page. Ura no Ura (www2.airnet.ne.jp/~tac) - Various info on the strikers and striker attacks, not to mention some basic command information and cancelable DM information, was all taken from this great site. Charles Mac Donald (www.emucamp.com/cgfm2) - For letting me hog his computer while I worked on this FAQ. Clarence - For showing me the usual assortment of crazy combos (like the Jhun one mentioned above). (v0.2) For a bunch of corrections and additions, like Krizalid's infinite combo and info. on Ryo's Tenchi Haou Ken counterhit. Jared Low and ChaRleS - I looked at their bio translations in their respective FAQs when I was translating the bios at SNK's page. If you'd like to contribute something, or you just want to give some feedback (positive or negative, it's all good), then you can reach me at . Please don't ask me about where to get ROMs at, I don't know. As for playing with Krizalid, there's no bonafide code yet. Once a real code to use Krizalid pops up, I'll be sure to add it to the FAQ. Right now the only option (if you have the ROMs) is to use a trainer. The only one I know of is LickGuy's trainer, which you can find at his page, at . If you have a modified Neo Geo with the special BIOS or whatever, you can always check out the method to pick Krizalid using the dip switches (described in the dip switch settings listed above). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ REVISION HISTORY ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Version 0.3 (December 27, 1999) - A couple of minor corrections and additions, stuck in Bao's triangle jump command (can't believe I overlooked it)! The code to play as Kyo and / or Iori has also been confirmed and tested. A couple of the move names have been changed because that's how they're spelled in Neo Geo Freak magazine, but a few I left unchanged since I personally think they're correct anyway. Feel free to prove me wrong, though :) I also added quote lists for all characters, courtesy of the info at SNK of Japan's page, which I double-checked as best I could by listening to the voice tracks off of the Soundtrack CD (found at Gunsmith's page). If you want translations, though, you better look to Gunsmith's FAQ, as translating speech is really beyond me :) Version 0.2 (November 25, 1999) - Added / corrected a lot of the Counter Mode cancels, and updated the list of cancelable attacks for characters (most this info pulled from the Gamest scans at Gunsmith's page and meticulously tested by yours truly). Some other additions and corrections have been made as well, as well as a reorganization of some of the FAQ sections for ease of use. I added a glitch for Jhun, too (which makes me happy, since I tend to never find weird stuff like that in fighting games). Version 0.1 (October 20, 1999) - First release, a lot more stuff to add, but this will have to do for now. I'm planning on adding in move descriptions in the future (although I'm sort of debating this since they'd make the FAQ a lot bigger...feedback, anyone)? That's all.
