=-------------------------=
   P: Any Punch button
   LP: Light Punch button
   HP: Heavy Punch button
   PP: Both Punch buttons

   K: Any Kick button
   LK: Light Kick button
   HK: Heavy Kick button

   PA: Partner A (the higher partner)
   PB: Partner B (the lower partner)

   ST: Start

   F: Forward (Towards the opponent)
   B: Backward (Away from the opponent)

   1 -> 2 -> 3: Perform actions 1, then 2, then 3 in quick succession
   1 + 2: Perform actions 1 and 2 at the same time

   *: Undocumented move (not in the game booklet or Capcom's web site)
   +: "Awesome" Assist Type

=--------=
=Controls=
=--------=
In the Arcade, MvC2's controls have a six-button layout, with the Start
button having additional functions once the game begins:

     O                       ST
     |       LP  HP  PA  
     |       LK  HK  PB
    ---

This is a radical change from the layout of the other three games in the
series which had three punch and three kick buttons.  The "medium" punch
and kick buttons have disappeared, and have been replaced by buttons for
Partner A and Partner B.  During gameplay, the Start button is used to taunt,
and after a round can be used to break the win animation of a character (see
below for more details).

For the Dreamcast and Arcade, the default commands are as follows:

Command           Arcade     Std. DC Pad   Arcade Stick
-------------------------------------------------------
Movement          Joystick   Digital Pad   Joystick
Light Punch       LP         X Button      X Button
Heavy Punch       HP         Y Button      Y Button
Partner A         PA         L Trigger     Z Button
Light Kick        LK         A Button      A Button
Heavy Kick        HK         B Button      B Button
Partner B         PB         R Trigger     C Button
Pause             --N/A--    Start         Start
Taunt (Chouhatsu) Start      A + Start     A + Start
Win Pose Break    Start      Start         Start

On the Dreamcast, in the game's pause menu there are options for changing the
game controls to your own configuration, such as assigning LP + HP to a single
button or even assigning the Taunt to a button.  Of course, with only six 
buttons, this means giving up one of the standard buttons to play with.

=------------=
=Assist Types=
=------------=
When selecting your characters from the opening screen, you will need to select
an Assist Type for each character.  The Alpha, Beta, and Gamma Assist Types
are unique to each character, and the selected type determines the Variable
Assist and Variable Combination moves that the selected character will perform.

For each character's Assist Types, one is noted as "Awesome" on the character
select screen.  While this type doesn't appear to be necessarily better than
the other two, it's the recommended type to choose until you have decided on
the best set of types to mix and match.

The Assist Type listed on the character selection screen will tell you 
generally about that character's Variable Assist and Variable Combination moves,
although characters with limited or unique Hyper Combos may not necessarily 
conform to the description given.  Each character's Assist Type is one of the 
following:
  Shooting Attack:  Character launches a projectile attack
                    Example: Ryu's Hadouken
  Air Attack:       Character launches a primarily anti-air attack
                    Example: Ryu's Shoryuuken
  Irregular Attack: Character launches a non-traditional attack
                    Example: Iceman's Ice Avalanche
  Movement Attack:  Character launches a moving melee attack that begins
                    from the current character's location
                    Example: Ryu's Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku
  Balance Assist:   Character's Variable Attack and Variable Combination moves
                    compliment one another
                    Example: Psylocke's Psy-Blast (Shooting) and Psy-Thrust
                             (Rush)
  Rush Attack:      Character launches a moving melee attack that begins
                    from the edge of the screen
                    Example: Rogue's Repeating Punch
  Throw:            Character attempts to throw the opponent
                    Example: Zangief's Flying Power Bomb
  Recovery:         Character gives the current character a life-up item.
                    Example: Jill's Red + Green Herb
  Sweep Attack:     Character launches a melee attack that spans almost all or
                    the entire screen, usually hitting low
                    Example: Blackheart's Dark Thunder
  Launch Attack:    Character attacks with a Aerial Rave Launch move.
                    Example: Gambit's Crouching HP
  Attack Assist:    Character launches a trap/grab projectile or attack
                    Example: Spider-Man's Web Ball
  Ability Assist:   Character gives the current character a power-up item.
                    Example: Ruby Heart's Power Up

=-----------------=
=Hyper Combo Gauge=
=-----------------=
The Hyper Combo gauge, located at the bottom of the screen for each team, 
displays the current number of Hyper Combo levels available for that team. When
empty, the bar is empty, but with each non-Hyper Combo attack (hit or miss, 
regular or special) or received hit, the bar fills with color (from center to 
side) until an additional level is gained.  Up to 5 Hyper Combo levels can be
stored for a team, and this level is denoted by "MAX".  

Hyper Combo levels are used to perform Hyper Combos, most of which use up one
Hyper Combo level.  Some other types of moves use up the levels as well; these
are outlined in detail below.

=-----------=
=Hyper Combo=
=-----------=
The Hyper Combo is a special move that, when successful, can do a large amount
of damage to a single opponent.  Each character has one or more unique Hyper
Combos that can be performed against the opponent.  Most Hyper Combos require
and use one Hyper Combo level, although their are some that require and use
three levels.  Each character has their own unique commands that initiate a
Hyper Combo, so see the Character Move Lists below for details.

Before a Hyper Combo, there is a slight pause where the screen darkens and the
character performing the move gathers energy.  During this pause, the opponent
cannot move, although if the Hyper Combo is one that does not connect instantly,
this does give them a short period in which to prepare a guard.

=-------------------=
=Delayed Hyper Combo=
=-------------------=
The Delayed Hyper Combo allows up to all three characters on a team to perform
Hyper Combos against a single opponent in quick succession.  Once the first
character is currently performing a Hyper Combo, if you perform any of the 
Hyper Combo commands for Partner A (the one listed first below the current
character), the current character's Hyper Combo will immediately stop, and 
Partner A will jump in and immediately begin the Hyper Combo that was chosen.
The current character becomes Partner B, and the character that was Partner B
then becomes Partner A.  During normal game play, you can perform this a 
second time, allowing all three of your characters to perform a Hyper Combo
against the opponent.

During a Delayed Hyper Combo, Hyper Combo levels are used up as if each 
character had independently performed a Hyper Combo.

Take note that if the Hyper Combo used is one that does not strike immediately, 
then the opponent may either fall to the ground unharmed by the second combo or
even be able to block it.

=--------------------=
=Variable Combination=
=--------------------=
The Variable Combination has up to all three partners attack the opponent at
once with a simultaneous Hyper Combo.  By pressing the Partner A and Partner B
buttons at the same time, a number of characters equal to the number of Hyper
Combo levels available (up to 3, naturally) will perform a set Hyper Combo at 
the same time.  Each character's Variable Combination depends on the Assist
Type chosen at the time of character selection.  Full details on each Hyper 
Combo used are given in the Character Move List below.

The Variable Combination can only be performed while the character is standing
or crouching on the ground and not performing an attack or actively guarding.

If you have only one Hyper Combo level, only your current character will 
perform their set Hyper Combo.  If you have two Hyper Combo levels, your
current character and Partner A will perform Hyper Combos.  If you have three
or more Hyper Combo levels, both Partners will attack along with you.

=--------=
=Snapback=
=--------=
The Snapback move allows you to knock the current opponent out of play for 
several seconds and force in the opponent's partner of your choice.  With
a motion of D, DF, F + either of the Partner buttons, the screen will pause
briefly (as it would for a Super Combo) and your character will launch a short
punch or kick.  If it connects and is not blocked, it will knock the current
opponent out of the field of play.  D, DF, F + PA replaces the current opponent
with Partner A, D, DF, F + PB replaces the current opponent with Partner B.

The Snapback does have a high price, however.  One Hyper Combo level is used
upon each execution, whether it is successful or not.

=---------------=
=Variable Assist=
=---------------=
The Variable Assist allows you to call in one of your Partners for a Special
Move or normal attack against the opponent.  The Variable Assist of each 
character is determined by their Assist Type (see above for more information,
and see the Character Move List for information on exactly which moves are 
performed).

By pressing either of the Partner buttons, the corresponding Partner (A or B) 
will jump onto the screen, perform their Variable Assist attack, taunt, and
then jump off screen.  During this time, the newly arrived partner is 
vulnerable to attacks from the opponent, and they can take damage.  However,
all damage an assisting character takes is recoverable.

=----------------=
=Variable Counter=
=----------------=
While actively guarding from an attack, you can call in one of your partners
to counterattack the opponent.  B, DB, D + either Partner button calls in the
respective Partner to counter the opponent with a special move or normal
attack.  A Variable Counter uses up one Hyper Combo level per use.

=---------------=
=Variable Attack=
=---------------=
To tag out to another Partner, you can use the Variable Attack.  By pressing
LP + LK for Partner A or HP + HK for Partner B, your Partner will fly onto the
screen with an attack, and your current character will leave.  

If your Variable Attack strikes, the opponent will be thrown spinning into the 
air, unable to block or attack.  During this time, you can follow up with an
attack or combo.

=-----------=
=Aerial Rave=
=-----------=
An Aerial Rave occurs when you launch an opponent into the air with an attack
and follow them upwards with a combo.  To perform an Aerial Rave launch, each
character has one or more commands that will cause a red circular flash around
the opponent, sending them into the air.  Immediately upon a successful launch,
hold the Joystick or D-Pad up to perform a Super Jump that matches the 
opponent's trajectory.  This allows you to follow up with additional hits and
perform an Aerial Rave combo.

Each character has at least one launch move that is either DF + HP or DF + HK.
All available launch moves are listed below in the Character Move List.

=----=
=Dash=
=----=
Dashing allows you character to cover ground towards or away from the opponent
more quickly.  For larger, slower characters, this is an essential ingredient
to their attacks.  During a dash, you are vulnerable to attacks, but you can
attack at any time.

To dash forward, push the joystick towards the opponent twice quickly or press
both punch buttons together.  To dash backward, push the joystick away from
the opponent twice quickly or hold backward and press both punch buttons.

=----------=
=Super Jump=
=----------=
To perform a Super Jump that is much higher than your character's normal jump,
just move the joystick to any up position from any down position, such as 
D, U or DB, UF.  

=-----------------=
=Guard / Air Guard=
=-----------------=
To guard against an attack, hold back on the joystick.  While standing, holding
back guards from jumping and high attacks, but you can still be hit by a low
attack.  While crouching, holding back guards from high and low attacks, but
you can still be hit by a jumping or overhead attack.  While in Mid-Air,
holding back protects you from all attacks that come at you from the front.

=-----=
=Throw=
=-----=
In order to throw an opponent, you must be standing right next to them, and then
press forward or backward on the joystick while pressing HP or HK. 

=---------=
=Air Throw=
=---------=
In order to throw an airborne opponent, you must be also be in mid-air while
right next to them, and then press up on the joystick while pressing HP or HK. 

=-------------=
=Down Recovery=
=-------------=
To quickly roll and recover after being knocked down by an opponent, perform
a B, DB, D + punch or kick motion.  

=---------------=
=Advancing Guard=
=---------------=
While actively guarding an attack, you can press both punch buttons at the same
time to perform an Advancing Guard.  A blue circular flash will appear in 
front of your character, knocking your opponent backwards.

=-----------=
=Chain Combo=
=-----------=
Every character in the game has the ability to perform simple chain combos
consisting of three hits: light, light, heavy.  Whether the attacks are punches
or kicks, crouching or standing, every character has this combo set available.
Note that some character's second hit will drive the opponent backwards, 
leaving the third hit to be a guaranteed miss.

=-----------------=
=Taunt (Chouhatsu)=
=-----------------=
In the Arcade, a Taunt can be performed at any time simply by pressing the
Start button.  On the Dreamcast, pressing LK + Start at the same time will 
perform a Taunt, as just pressing Start alone will pause the game.  Every
character has their own unique taunt, and one character (Dan) has multiple
taunts and even a Hyper Combo taunt.

=--------------=
=Win Pose Break=
=--------------=
After winning a battle, your character will normally go into their win pose.
You can break from this pose by pressing the Start button, which will allow
you to freely control you character for a few seconds until the between-battle
screen pops up.

=----------------------=
=Character Order Change=
=----------------------=
Between battles, you can change the lead character of your team by pressing
and holding either the Partner A or Partner B button, depending on which 
character you want to use.


=--------------------------------------=---------------------------------------=

III.  Character Move Lists

IV.   Secret Factor

==========================
=What is "Secret Factor"?=
==========================
Like many of Capcom's Dreamcast games, different secrets and options can be 
unlocked by earning points through various means.  In this case, by earning 
three types of points (D-Points, N-Points, and V-Points), you can "buy" extra
characters, unlock secret stages, and add an additional costume to each of the
characters.

The screen is laid out as follows:
                      Level __
                      Experience
*VS Shop*             Play Time
 
                      D-Points
*Character List*      N-Points
                      V-Points

*Character Trade*     Net Wins
                      Net Losses   Rank
                      Net Draws
*VS. COM*     
                      Description

*Exit*


The VS Shop is where you use your points to buy characters.  The Character
List shows which characters and stages you have currently unlocked, the
Character Trade option describes how to trade characters, and VS. COM
downloads the character-trading Mini-Game to your VMU.  Since it is highly 
unlikely that if you actually have the change to use the VS COM you can't read
the directions on how to do it, I'm not going to go into that section for now.

===================
=The Points System=
===================
You earn the three types of points as follows:
 - D-Points are earned playing Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on your Dreamcast in any 
   mode.  Even playing in Training Mode earns you points.
 - N-Points are earned playing Network Battles.  If you are not currently 
   living in Japan or own an Asian Dreamcast with no modem, you're out of 
   luck.
 - V-Points are earned by taking your VMU to a Japanese MvC2 arcade machine
   and playing the arcade game.  If you don't live in Japan, again, you're
   out of luck.

=========
=VS Shop=
=========
In the VS Shop, there are three blocks of items for sale.  The list of 
available items changes with each level (as shown on the main screen of
Secret Factor), so once you buy all of the items you can at a certain 
level, you'll need to keep playing until you've bumped yourself up to the
next level.

The three blocks of items are always:
 - Left Block: This contains alternate uniforms and the additional seven
               stages, which can always be purchased with D-Points.
 - Middle Block: This contains hidden characters which can initially be 
                 purchased with D-Points, although later on you must also
                 use N and V-Points.
 - Right Block: This contains hidden characters which must be purchased
                with a combination of D, N, and V-Points.

I'm not up to it, but if someone would like to send a list of which 
items can be bought from which blocks and at which levels, I'd be 
happy to include it here.

========================
=Secrets to be Unlocked=
========================
 - Seven Stages - Purchased through the VS shop
 - 32 Hidden Characters - Purchased through the VS shop or downloaded
   from Capcom of Japan's web site
 - 56 Alternate Colors - One for each character, purchased through the 
   VS shop
 - Select same character multiple times - Unknown, automatically 
   appeared on a save file at Level 99 with all options unlocked.      

================================
=What if I don't live in Japan?=
================================
How can you unlock all those lovely secrets with N and V-Points?  You have two
options:
 - Hack the save file (see the below section for details)
 - Download a pre-hacked save file (from GameFAQs at
   http://www.gamefaqs.com/mvc2vms.html )

=--------------------------------------=---------------------------------------=

V.    How to Hack the VMU Save Game

If you're reading this, there's a good chance you don't live in Japan.  This 
makes it very hard to earn the N-Points and V-Points required to unlock 
additional characters and stages.

So, what can you do?  Hop a quick flight to Japan?  Scour the net for VMU saves
that kind souls have dropped off for you?

Or, you could do like I did, and hack the VMU save.  Evil, cheap, and the 
only currently known way to open up characters for those of you without a
modem or access to a Japanese MvC2 Arcade game.

Please note that you are assuming all responsibility and risk for any actions 
you perform by following the instructions below.  It's your fault if you mess
up your game save, not mine, so keep a backup of your originals!  

I WILL NOT GIVE E-MAIL SUPPORT ON HACKING THE VMU SAVES.  If there's something
you don't understand in this file, please ask someone else who knows.  There are
literally thousands of resources on the net about hacking Hex files, and I am
not one of them.

If, on the other hand, you have corrections or additions on hacking, please
send them along.

Of course, if you don't want to hack it yourself, just come by my site, 
GameFAQs, and download a hacked save from the home page:
   http://www.gamefaqs.com

=----------------=
=What You'll Need=
=----------------=
* An Innovation 200X4 Memory card and PC Link cable.  Available at Electronics
  Boutique or many online and mail-order stores.  Nexus also makes a similar
  card and software, but I'm unfamiliar with the details.
* The PC Link software, available from Innovation's web site, the URL of which
  I can't remember right now (although it's listed on the back of the memory
  card package)
* Alessandro Sansai's VMU tools.  Specifically, the VMU Checksum Calculator and
  the DCI to VMS converter.  Get them from:
          http://www.franken.de/users/deco/myfiles/myfiles.html
* A hex editor.  I use Hex Workshop from Breakpoint Software, your mileage may 
  vary. 
* A degree in Astrophysics.

=--------------------------=
=Getting the MvC2 Save File=
=--------------------------=
First of all, play a game or two of MvC2 and save the data to your Innovation
card.  For some reason, a virgin file (i.e. one you haven't played with) will
not work properly.  Get to the Game Over screen on Arcade Mode, and you're
ready to go.  In the PC Link program, connect to the card and double-click
on the MvC2 save file.  Export it to a file you can get to easily, and we're
ready to go!

=--------------------=
=Hex-Editing the File=
=--------------------=
Once you've got the game save in DCI format, load it up into your Hex Editor.
In order to follow me here, you'll need to pull it up in hex address format.

Within the file are THREE checksums that you'll need to recalculate in order
to get the save to be accepted by the game once you're done mucking about
with it.  All the numbers in a DCI file are big-endian, so it's pretty easy
to navigate through if you've done Hex before.

So, what should you look out for?

0064: Checksum 1 - Two bytes, the "standard" VMU checksum
02AC: D Points - Two bytes
02B0: V Points - Two bytes
02B2: N Points - Two Bytes
02B4: Hidden Character Unlocks! - Eight Bytes
02C4: Time Played - Three Bytes, Hours, Minutes, Seconds
02C7: Hidden Stage Unlocks - One Byte
09C4: Checksum 2 - Two Bytes, Checksum-16 from 02A0-09C3
09C6: Checksum 3 - Two Bytes, Sum of 02A0-09C3 (unsure, see below for details)

=------------------------------=
=Giving Yourself V and N Points=
=------------------------------=
So, want to boost up your V and N point totals?  Point the Hex Editor to 02B0 
and have a look.  You'll most likely see:
000002C0 0000 0000 ...

So, let's give ourselves 1000 V points and 1000 N points (1000 Dec = 3E8 Hex). 
So, just edit the file as follows:
000002C0 03E8 03E8

Easy.  Just keep track of how much you've added (see the Checksum section for
details), and you've got the points in the bag.  The same can be done for D 
Points if you're in a hurry by editing 02AC.

=-------------------------------=
=Unlocking The Hidden Characters=
=-------------------------------=
All the hidden characters are contained within eight bytes from 02B4 to 02BB.
Each character will be activated when the bit they represent is flipped from
zero to one.  

When you begin, the bytes look like this: 00FF FF77 0200 0004, or:

  02B4      02B5      02B6      02B7      02B8      02B9      02BA      02BB
 0    0    F    F    F    F    7    7    0    2    0    0    0    0    0    4
---- ---- ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++ -+++ -+++ ---- --+- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- -+--

Since 24 bits are turned on, we know those are the 24 starting characters.  No,
I haven't gone through and figured out which are which, as I don't care.

So, which characters are activated by which bits?  

02B4: 8 - Bulleta
      7 - Gouki
      6 - Roll
      5 - RockMan
      4 - Chun-Li
      3 - ?
      2 - ?
      1 - ?
02B5: 8 - STARTER
      7 - STARTER
      6 - STARTER
      5 - STARTER
      4 - STARTER
      3 - STARTER
      2 - STARTER
      1 - STARTER
02B6: 8 - STARTER
      7 - STARTER
      6 - STARTER
      5 - STARTER
      4 - STARTER
      3 - STARTER
      2 - STARTER
      1 - STARTER
02B7: 8 - Wolverine
      7 - STARTER
      6 - STARTER
      5 - STARTER
      4 - Morrigan
      3 - STARTER
      2 - STARTER
      1 - STARTER
02B8: 8 - ?
      7 - ?
      6 - ?
      5 - ?
      4 - ?
      3 - Kobun
      2 - STARTER
      1 - Captain Commando
02B9: 8 - Jin
      7 - Thanos
      6 - Blackheart
      5 - Sentinel
      4 - Iron Man
      3 - Colossus
      2 - Spiral
      1 - Omega Red
02BA: 8 - Silver Samurai
      7 - War Machine
      6 - Shuma-Gorath
      5 - Magneto
      4 - Sabretooth
      3 - Storm
      2 - Juggernaut
      1 - Gambit
02BB: 8 - Ken
      7 - Vega
      6 - Dhalsim
      5 - Cammy
      4 - Dan
      3 - STARTER
      2 - Nash
      1 - Felicia

So, if you want to activate all 56 characters, the bytes will look like this: 
F8FF FFFF 07FF FFFF, or:

  02B4      02B5      02B6      02B7      02B8      02B9      02BA      02BB
 F    8    F    F    F    F    F    F    0    7    F    F    F    F    F    F
++++ +--- ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++ ---- -+++ ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++

Easy.  

In other words, just replace the bytes at 02B4 with "F8FF FFFF 07FF FFFF".
That is, as long as you keep track of your math.

=--------------------=
=Fixing the Checksums=
=--------------------=
There are three checksums in the file you'll need to adjust after adding in
all the characters: 09C4, 09C6, and 0064.  Two are easy, and the third isn't
too bad.  Just make sure you correct them in this order:

09C4: Checksum 2 - Two Bytes, Checksum-16 from 02A0-09C3

If you're using Hex Workshop, just highlight 02A0 to 09C3 (right before the
checksum) and press F12.  You'll need to get the Checksum-16 value from the
selected area and replace the two bytes at 09C4 with it.

09C6: Checksum 3 - Two Bytes, Sum of 02A0-09C3 (unsure)

The Checksum at 09C6 appears to be merely the two lowest bytes of the sum of
all 16-bit words from 02A0 to 09C3.  Hex Workshop doesn't have an addition
checksum, however, but it's just as easy to keep track of how much you've added.

Say you added 1000 points to your V Points (i.e. from 0000 to 03E8).  Well,
just take out your hex calculator (the standard Windows calculator in Scientific
mode works just fine) and add 3E8 to the current checksum at 09C6.  The result
is your new checksum, so fill it back into the file.

0064: Checksum 1 - Two bytes, the "standard" VMU checksum

Once you have checksums 2 and 3 calculated, save your file (make a backup if
you're unsure of yourself).  

Take your saved DCI file and run the DCI to VMS converter on it.  You'll
still have your DCI file, but there will also be a new VMS file.  Now, just
run the VMU Checksum Calculator on your VMS file.  The standard output from
the program shows both the old and new checksum, so take the new checksum
and stick it back into the DCI file at 0064.

=-------------=
=Trying it Out=
=-------------=
Assuming you've done everything right so far, you can now import the DCI file
back into your memory card and load it up in MvC2.  If you got the checksums
wrong in any way, you'll get an error message and the game WILL NOT LOAD.
This is why you MUST keep a backup of your original file.  

=-------------------=
=VMS File Memory Map=
=-------------------=
(NOTE: This map is in DCI format, not the original VMS format.)

0000-009F: Standard VMU Header
           0064: Standard VMU Checksum
00A0-029F: Save Icon

09C6-09C7: Additive Checksum of 02A0-09C3
09C8-09FF: UNKNOWN, Most Likely Blank Padding

=------------------------------=
=One Last Very Interesting Note=
=------------------------------=
I went through and played Training Mode several times, selecting each charcter
once.  The results?  As expected, the low bytes from 08A0 to 0917 all increased
by one.  Except for four of them.  Does this mean that there are still four
hidden characters left in the game somewhere?  

From Marvel vs. Capcom, the "missing" characters are five variations: Carnage-
style Venom, Hyper War Machine, Lilith-style Morrigan, Orange Hulk, and 
Shadow Lady.  Hmmm...  Could they be in there somewhere?  In case you're 
wondering, no, setting all bits on at 02B4 doesn't open up anything else.  But
it's something to ponder.  

Then again, maybe 56 characters is enough...

=--------------------------------------=---------------------------------------=

VI.   Administrivia

Since I'm not about to go back and re-translate every single move lifted
from all the other games in this series, I've used quite a few sources in
simply gathering ideas and names of the moves of each of the characters.
These include:
  Kao Megura's Star Gladiator 2, Marvel vs. Capcom, Marvel vs. Street Fighter,
  Vampire Savior, and probably a few other FAQs I've forgotten here.  Whew!

  My own Street Fighter EX 3 FAQ
  Everett Littles' Marvel Super Heroes Dr. Doom FAQ
  The MvC2 Game Manual
  Capcom's Web Site
