 1> INTRODUCTION
_________________

Well well well... Here we are again folks!!! And here is... TA-DAAAAN!!! Yes, my second FAQ.
A little note about this faq... At least for now I don't want to make a comprehensive faq, I
just want to put the character's moves, some secrets and more than all the MENU transations.
So don't blame me if (for now...)the faq is not as cool as you wanted it to be. Though its's in
its first version so perhaps things will get better the next times... Don't ya think???
Now a few words on the game;as, I hope, you all know RIVAL SCHOOLS 2 it's not the real sequel to
Rival Schools: United By Fate (the real sequel will be soon out for NAOMI on arcades and
DREAMCAST on home) but more a "remake" of the first game.
The bigger changes are in the "School Mode"; in the first game the School Mode was put in as a
cool bonus on the second disc, the "EVOLUTION" disc, but that's what it was, a cool gift and
nothing more.
In THIS game the School Mode is much more important, we could say it's the central pillar in
wich the game spins around. Gamers liked very much the School Mode on The first game, so at
Capcom they've putted many efforts to make it much much much better in this "remake" of Rival
Schools : United By Fate.
There will be many more characters to interact with, many more choices, both in the real game
and in the creation of your characters too. The final resulting characters will be more various,
both in their aspect and in their moves, since they will be not limited in learning ONLY the
others "normal" character's moves; unless that's what it's said... I will give you soon more
accurate informations.
As you may have already thought, yes, old characters have new moves (not all of them though) and
there are a few new backgrounds.
The graphic of the bars has changed (IMHO in a better way... but you know: "DE GUSTIBUS").
There are many modalities and there are much more "sports" to play with, there is also some sort
of dance simulation à la "Bust a Groove"!!!! Secret "sports" are also rumored to be in.
Then there is the pocket station mode, and an all new Omake mode.
It works some sort of cool, pratically doing the games, the School mode, the Training mode and
all the rest you gain "points"; you can spend this points in the omake mode buying movies,
cards, secrets, pictures and much more...
Expect some "POINT SELECTION" GS/PAR codes very soon!!! EHEHEH!!! ^___-
Now let's come to the real thing, the graphic. As the more of you has surely noticed there was
a big difference between RIVAL SCHOOLS in arcade and on PSX. This difference was a problem of
Capcom BAD PROGRAMMATION team, Rival Schools on arcades runned on a System 11 and so there
shouldn't have been problems after we've all seen a quite perfect conversion from a SYSTEM 12 
board game (Tekken 3), so it was all Capcom's programmers' fault... No there are not excuses for
them! Remember that the System 11 is pratically a PSX!!! And if at Namco they made an OPTIMUS
conversion from a SYSTEM 12 why Capcom coudn't made it from a SYSTEM 11 board???
We all expected a better graphic here on this remake... And i believe we all got deluded by
Capcom... Yes, perhaps there are a FEW (and i really mean a FEW) more poligons, expecially on
the faces, some more effects but THAT'S ALL... As always the SOOOO WORLD FAMOUS Capcom's sense
of affair has came up once again... Once Capcom has a game or an idea they use it 'til it become
useless, just watch Street Fighter!!!! Street Fighter 2, champion edition, turbo, super street
fighter, super turbo, alpha... Well let's stop here... And Resident Evil??? Yes, Resident Evil,
Director's Cut (with still the CUTS in... -____-), Director's Cut Dual Shock, Resident Evil 2,
Resident Evil 2 Dual Shock, Dino Crisis, Onimusha... Oh man I can't really take anymore of it...
So anyone who knows Capcom should have expected from them a "symphatic" operation like they did
with RIVAL SCHOOLS 2's graphic...
Ok ok, now that i've told all that I had inside of me I think we should begin with the real faq,
don't you think??? And so here we are!!!!!!

      RIVAL SCHOOLS: United by Fate; in case of differences i'll update this section as soon as
      the American version of RIVAL SCHOOLS 2 is out. All of the movements are for characters
      facing right, and this is applyed to section "4> Characters Move List" too.

  Rival Launcher you simply have to press "u" to do a High Jump and go toward the airborne
  enemy.

- THROW
  Done by pressing lp+hp near an enemy, if your enemy is crouching press d+lp+hp to catch him
  while he is crouching; note that doing a throw from behind your opponent will result in a
  different throw that the standard made in front of your enemy.
  Remember that on the ground you can escape from being throwed by simply pressing the throw
  button at the SAME EXACT moment your opponent does.

- DODGE
  Press lk+hk for a dodge "into the screen" instead press d+lk+hk for a dodge "out of screen"
  Note that if you do a dodge (either "into" or "out" of the screen) while close to your foe AND
  while he is doing an attack of any type (normal, special or even a Burning Vigor Attack) you
  will do a special dodge that will bring you right behind your opponent

- TAUNT
  Just press "select" on your gamepad anytime during the fight; your character will taunt your
  foe and he will get some more energy in his Burning Vigor Gauge. Taunt your enemy repeately
  during a fight to fill up your Burning Vigor Gauge to level 9!!!

- GET UP
  While you are knocked to the groud you have 4 ways of getting up,just see the following table:
  press u --> Get op on the spot
  press d --> Roll to the side and get up
  press r --> Roll forward and get up
  press l --> Roll back and get up
  For a faster get up start imputting the command as you'r falling down

  above get up movement

                                                       /--> Burning Vigor Attack
  lp or lk --> lp or lk --> hp or hk --> f+hp or f+hk <
                                                       \--> Special Move
  You can start from which step you want, even from Step 5 (but in that case you will not be
  doing a combo anymore... ^_^;;) and remember that you can skip steps, so from step 1 you can
  go to step 4 or step 5

- TARDY COUNTER
  Counterattack an opponent by pressing special move combos while guarding the opponent's
  attack. Special move combos are different for each character. You can do a Tardy Counter also
  with a Burning Vigor Attack, a Team Up Technique or even a Special "normal" Attack

  Rival Schools 2 is the possibility to control your Defensive fall by pressing f or b on the
  pad

- RIVAL LAUNCHER
  Press the directional button df + (hp or hk) to launch your opponent into the air. Jump to
  pursue him, then continue the combo with your attacks. Combine it with the Textbook Combo for
  even greater damage!

- BURNING VIGOR ATTACK
  Storing up the Burning Vigor gauges will allow you to use these awesome attacks. They change
  from character to character, see section "4> Character Move List" for more info.

- TEAM UP TECHNIQUE
  When two or more guages are stored and you see the face of your partner near your Burning
  Vigor Gauge, you can perform the Team Up Technique by pressing (lp + lk) or (hp + hk).
  Note that the attacker can increase and the defender can decrease the damage inflicted by the
  Team Up Technique by repeately pressing a button while performing the Team Up Technique.
  There are mainly 3 types of Team Up Technique: the standard one will damage your opponent in
  several different ways (depending on the characters you've chosen), the other 2 types will
  instead inflict a very little damage to your opponent and make your character recover your
  energy bar, for one type, or your Burning Vigor Gauge for the other type.

________________________

For the moves names and the character's description I referred to the USA manual of Rival
Schools : United By Fate (or the in game menu during training mode) while for the school
descriptions i used the "Rival Schools Character Stories FAQ 1.2" by Batsu ;
for names (or descriptions) not officially documented I put a "???", I'll update when the USA
version of Rival Schools 2 will be out.


4.1> TAYO HS - "The School That Usually Loves Freedom"
     Tackling anything with enthusiasm, Taiyou is a normal coed-school with a burning school
     spirit. However, lately, that school spirit has been shadowed...
     If I'm not wrong TAIYO means sun.

            A hot-blooded, quarrelsome Phys-Ed devotee with a burning desire to find his missing

                                just to launch it together on your inerm foe.

                          smiling at you and making you even more proud and combattive. Then

          Last Symphony -> This is an attack-type Team Up Technique. This move is still one of
                           the most spettacular in the game... As soon as you hit your opponent
                           Kyosuke will arrive on the screen and both him and your character
                           will start a sooooooo damned cool combo of kicks and punches on your

                                  make you laugh a bit. It's very japanese! Your character will
                                  take a strange, position like a charging one, some sort of
                                  MA-PU in Shaolin Kung-Fu. Then Hayato will appear from behind
                                  and will stard beating hard with his bamboo sword on your
                                  character's back... Your character will slowly charge a ball
                                  of energy and when it's full he will launch it towards your
                                  foe!!!

            A high-energy martial arts expert, she allied with Batsu early on to solve the
            mistery of the students' disappearances. Hinata is loaded with school spirit and is
            good in all the sports.
            She is a good friend of Natsu and Sakura.
            Eheh, you got it, i put the same charachter info as Hinata Wakana, but i think it
            should be the same. The only difference between Hinata and Hinata2 are their Team
            Up Techniques (one is an attack-type and one is a recover-type) and their outfit.
            Hinata2 is in some sport outfit, presumably a Volleyball-one.

          Crossfire Kick -> This is an attack-type Team Up Technique. Ohohum man... Another
                            difficult move to describe. Well pratically your char send your foe
                            on air, then both your char and Hinata2 jump toward the enemy giving
                            him a punch, while they give a punch to him they continue their jump
                           up above crossing their ways at the enemy's height. Then they charge
                           a kick and they give it TOGETHER to your poor foe, crossing again
                           their ways at enemy's height... Hmmm I know it's a little confusing
                           but I've already told you it was a move difficult to describe...
                           Anyway I'm sure that as you see it all will be clear. ;-)



4.2> GORIN HS - "School of Advanced Sports"

     of mutual interest of winning the championship, with a group of students with a high

     looking at Gedo HS with hostility.

            Grand Slam -> This is an attack-type Team Up Technique. This move should fit better
                          to Natsu than to Shoma in my opinion... Anyway it works like this:
                          Your character will launch the enemy onto the air like a volley ball,
                          then he will jump on air toward him just to slam it toward the ground,
                          just like he would do in a normal volleyball match with a volley ball.
                          Before your foe hits the ground arrives Shoma ho beat an home run on
                          him like he would have done with a baseball ball. The good thing about
                          this Team Up Technique is that wil launc your opponent far away off
                          the screen, so you'll have time to make many things, for example
                          charge your Burning Vigor Gauge with some taunts or prepare better for
                          your next attack.

                             shoulders making your Burning Vigor Gauge go up.

                          screen, both him and your char will make some dribbles with your foe
                          until they throw him up in air whith the last dribble. Then they'll
                          BOTH TOGETHER kick him just before he touches the ground when he is
                          coming down from the air.


     4.2.4> NAGARE NAMIKAWA - "Sleeping Fish"
            No info available.
            Some notes... At first i thought were wrong and that Nagare was from Pacific HS,
            since the symbol near his face in the Energy bar is the one of Pacific HS.
            Then i noticed that on his jacket, on the shoulders there is a Gorin HS symbol, as
            well as another thing, when you finish the game and you put your name on the
            Highscore table it will be displayed the points you have achieved, your name, the
            symbol of the school of the character you've used and how manyh enemyes u've beaten.
            Well, in this Highscore table i got a Gorin HS sybol for Nagare. So i thought that
            is 2 vs 1, and so the error must be in the energy bar and not the other 2. Don't
            you agree??? That's why in this version i put him in ghe Gorin HS section.

                        soon as you connect your enemy with this move Nagare will arrive on the
                        screen and they will start make some cool Water Dance, at the end of the
                        Dance the enemy will jump away... Ehem... But why? They don't hit him...

            chars so don't make me repeat myself... ^___^
            Again the only difference between Natsu and Natsu2 are in their Team Up Technique

                         movement used in volleyball, then he follow him up in air and SLAMS

                         Sliding Receive move, sending the enemy on air once again, then both

          Bridge Drop -> This is an attack-type Team Up Techinque. Man I really can't take
                         anymore moves like this... They're too difficult to describe!!! Or
                         Perhaps I'm only too lazy??? EHEH it could be... Anyway it work like
                         this, as your char hits your enemy Tiffany2 will arrive from behind and
                         pass BETWEEN your char legs. Your char will take Tiffany2 for her arms
                         and help her go on air, while she does so she give a super kick to your
                         foe sending him to ground. Then your character too jumps on air, then
                         Tiffany2 falls over your foe (while he still is on the ground!) and
                         after this your character too fall over Tiffany2!!!!! It all result in
                         a move very similar to some sort of wrestling move...



4.4> GEDO HS - "Collecting the Nation's Worst"
     Collecting notorious bad guys from all over Japan, the school goes through a lot of
     excruciating ups and downs. Until now, Akira's brother has drawn the line. With a serious
     clarity, they have a fierce rivalry with Gorin HS.


     4.4.1> EDGE (Eiji Yamada) - "Bloody Knife"
            His uncontrolled manic streak keeps Edge on the brink of total violence. He's
            searching the high schools to find his mising buddy Daigo. Just don't call him by
            his real name.

            REALLY STRANGE MOVE       KK (hold) on high jump
          I've discovered this move for a pure case, i don't know if it's a bug or what, but it
          should be 'cause you can't find it anywhere... Anyway I could only get this to work
          on Rival Schools : United By Fate.
          
          NOTE: you can follow up Reversing Blade Strike1 with Reversing Blade Strike2 OR ???1,
                ???1 can be followed up with ???2, and ???2 with Reversing Blade Strike2.
                Note that Reversing Blade Strike1 and 2 can be done 2 times consecutevely (if on
                ground) so you can made up to combo of 6 knives.If on air you can only do the
                combo Reversing Blade Strike 1 -> Reversing Blade Strike2. It will result in a 2
                Kinves combo since in air you CAN'T repeat theese moves 2 times each.
          Example of ground combo: d,df,f+lp,d,df,f+lp,d,db,b+lp,d,db,b+hp,d,df,f+hp,d,df,f+hp

                              your enemy hitting him with his punch (your char) and with his
                              Knife (Edge).


     4.4.2> AKIRA KAZAMA (with Helmet) - "Kung Fu Rider"
            Claiming to be the sibling od the missing gang boss Daigo, Akira infiltrated Gedo
            High School. Very few have heard Akira speak or would recognize her without her
            helmet.
            She is Daigo's younger sister.

          Gang Buster -> This is an attack-type Team Up Technique. This works really similarly
                         to Kyosuke's "Last Symphony". The only difference is that on "Last
                         Simphony" Kyosuke and his partner make the combo both on the same side
                         while in "Gang Buster" Akira and his partner are one on the front of
                         the opponent and one on his back.


     4.4.3> GAN SEKIDOU - "Powerful Juvenile Gang Leader"
            Gan is one of the few who have heard Akira speak. Now this powerful bruiser has
            joined the search for Daigo. Could a sensitive streak be hidden under that massive
            form?

                            Gan and his partner take the opponent one for his arms and one for
                            his legs, beating him repeatly on the ground and... no you really

     4.4.4> AKIRA KAZAMA (without Helmet) - "Pure Rider"
            Daigo's sister is a masterful motorcyclist... until she removes her helmet. Then

            all her time.

                                    really big otaku fan of Evengelion!!! Yes, this move is

                                    to beat that angel who doubled himself... A really must-see!

                         really demonstrates of being the boss of all!!! Pratically Daigo
                         arrives on screen, your opponent tries to make a few combo to him,
                         and while your character behind will be happy for the arrive of Daigo
                         Daigo will not even try to parry his opponent combo... He will remain
                         still! Then he will lose patience and will give a GIGATON PUNCH to his
                         opponent sending him into the blue blue sky... Then he will calmly walk
                         out of the screen while your character grateful will say "arigato Daigo
                         sempai". "Arigato" is "thanks" and "Sempai" is a words wich distincts
                         older students from younger-ones called "Kohai".

            the school. His cruel, aggressive personality plants fear in whomever he meets.

            his dead father (Raizo's brother) and starts all this madness... He is the REAL mind

                           opponent from behind while Sakura performs a few moves on him while
                           the screen fades in and out. Very cool move but not as other ones...





^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 5> MENU TRANSLATION
_____________________

Here is the translation of the main menus, i hope soon the translation for the School mode will
come too... For all the names and the description, as usual, i referred to the USA manual of
Rival Schools : United By Fate; as soon as the USA version of Rival Schools 2 i'll be sure
too update.

1: School Mode
   You know what it is, don't you???

2: 1P Game
   Play against the computer with unlimited Continues. Defeat the final enemy to see the ending.

3: Versus Battle
   After selecting your characters, determine their hadicaps (the more stars, the more power).
   Then select a stage. At the end of the match, the Character Select screen will reappear along
   with the match statistics.

4: League Battle
   Play against other teams in a round robin. First decide how many teams will partecipate and
   then select characters. After all the teams fight, team with the most victories is declared
   the winner.

5: Group Battle
   Fight against your opponent in groups. First, select the number of characters for each group,
   and then select characters. When the first character is fighting, the second will become the
   partner character. The first to beat all characters of the opponent's team wins.

6: TOURNAMENT BATTLE
   Play against other teams in a tournament. Use the Directional buttons to select your main
   character and partner character. To have a CPU partecipate as your opponent, select CPU in
   the Character Select screen.

7: COOPERATE BATTLE
   Up to four players using a Multi-Tap can partecipate in Cooperate battles. In addition to the
   basic rules, the partner character controls the Team Up Technique. When the main character is
   swapped for the partner character, the player controls are also swapped.
   * RULE
     This is a tag match mode where up to four players can play simultaneously. The main
     character and partner character are controlled by different players.
   * MAIN CHARACTER CONTROL
     The main character's control is the same as the normal control, except that the main
     character cannot perform the Team Up Technique.
   * PARTNER CHARACTER CONTROL
     The partner character starts the Team Up Technique by pressing the Punch and Kick buttons
     of the same strenght simultaneously.

8: TRAINING
   Pratice basic controls and special moves.Select your character and your opponent's character.
   Press the START button to display a menu allowing you to change the settings.

9: LESSON MODE
   Select the subject you want to pratice. Hayato will explain the subject, and the screen will
   display the following:
      Task Message (you need to perform the moves displaye here).
      Name of the subject
      Number of correct answers.
      Time you have to perform the task
    * RULE
      You must complete the task correctly in the allotted time.
    * HOW TO GET HIGH MARKS
      Perform the moves quickly and accurately.
    * GRADING
      Each subject will be marked in three categories: energy, accuracy, and speed. A perfect
      score is 300, and evaluations ranging from S (perfect) to A (excellent) to E (fail) will
      be displayed.
    * DEMERITS
      If you fail to perform the moves correctly, points will be deducted. Taking too much time
      to perform will also cause point deductions.

10:EXTRA GAMES
   You can select between many games, some already seen in Rival Schools and some new:
    * Shoma's Home Run Game
    * Roberto's Point Shots Game
    * Roberto's Goal Shots Game(playable in 2 too)
    * Natsu's Service Game
    * Run Game (playable in 2 too)
    * Doki Waku Dance
    * Watch Mode

11:EDIT MODE
   Here you can manage the use of characters created with the School Mode. You can change their
   names and other few things, then you can made them selectable. If you do so you can select
   them in all the other modes (ehem... quite all...) via the "EDIT" select button in the
   Character Select screen.

12:OMAKE
   This is the menu where you can buy all the goodies of the game, and they're sooo much more
   than the game before! Yes you've got it, you have to BUY them... The first option of this
   OMAKE menu is like a shop where you can spend the points you gain by doing the other modes.
   The second option is for viewing, using etc. the goodies you've bought in the first option.
   Secret characters, secret colours and outfit, and the pocketstation modes too can ONLY be
   acquired with this "shop".
   Since when you buy object they diseappear it would be difficult for me to make a list of them
   but i can at leas give you some advices. Very often you can understand the type of the object
   you're buying by simply watching its icon on the left of the name. Yes, it's not much but it
   could at least make you notice if you'r buying a card, a secret character colour, a pocket
   station mode, an image or something other.
   Note that sometimes instead of the girl an old woman will appear, pratically she has lower
   prices and some goodies are sold ONLY by her. I think she appears randomly.
   Expect some few informations on the next versions of the FAQ.

13:RECORD
   This is the order in wich the menu is displayed.
     LOAD
     SAVE
     AUTOSAVE
     EXIT
   Use the Record screen to save or load game settings and game data. Select an item by pressing
   the Directional buttons up/down and adjust the settings with by pressing the Directional
   buttons left/right. Press the START button to end, or select EXIT and press the X button (it
   should be O button in the JAP version) press the /\ button to cancel.
   If you turn AutoSave ON, game data will be automatically saved at the following points:
   * When exiting the Option screen
   * When ending a 1 Player game and returning to the Mode Select screen (the Main Menu)

14:OPTION
   Chose Option Mode to adjust the game settings, including difficulty, rules of the match and
   controller settings. I put the description in the same order they are displayed in the
   Option Mode screen menu in the game.
   Note that selecting DEFAULT (the option just before the last) on the Option menu or any of
   its submenus restores the default settings on the current menu. Also note that the default
   setting is displayed in Yellow, while other settings are displayed in white. So this could
   help you out a bit even if you don't know Kanji and Hiragana... ;-)

   * CPU DIFFICULTY
     By adding or substracting stars you can change the difficulty of the game, more stars more
     hard, less stars less hard. Just remember that Rival Schools : United By Fate also at level
     8 was an easy game to beat... In Rival Schools 2 Capcom has reprogrammed the Artificial
     Intelligency (it seems that they did AT LEAST this...), and so 8 stars it's not an
     impossible task... But certainly not easy like Rival Schools 2!!!
     Default is 2 stars.
   * ATTACK POWER
     The more stars, the more damage the moves (both yours and of your enemy) will inflict.
     Default is 2 stars.
   * Timer Speed
     The higher the number of stars the higher the speed of the time flowing.Default is 2 stars.
   * Number of matches (CPU)
     Default is 2 stars; you can change the number of rounds in the game as you like.
   * Number of matches (VS)
     Same as before but for the Versus fights istead of the CPU ones; default is 2 stars.
   * CPU ROUND character change
     Select between on and off, if turned on the computer will swap characters everytime a new
     round begin. Default is On.
   * CONTINUE CHARACTER CHANGE
     Select between on and off, if turned on you will be able to reselect your characters if
     you select to continue. Default is On
   * VIBRATION
     Select between On and Off, default is Off
   * SOUND
     You can select between Stereo and Mono; default is Stereo.
   * GAME SYSTEM CHANGE
     With this menu you can adjust the basic systems of the game.
     * DEFENSIVE FALL
       There are 4 settings for this option, startig from the default one "normal", proceeding
       by pressing right on your pad you'll find in this order: "CONDITION", "LANDING", "Off".
       I'm not so sure about "CONDITION" and "LANDING", but they were in this order both in the
       JAP and in the USA version of Rival Schools : United By Fate; so i guess it should be the
       same here... Though I have to clear out what's their meaning... I guess "LANDING" makes
       you able to make defensive fall ONLY before landing and not in air, but what the hell is
       "CONDITION"??? If you know please help out.
     * BURNING VIGOR GAUGE
       You can select from varios settings, the default is the "normal", so Initial 3 levels of
       Burning Vigor Gauge, if you press right on your pad you will find other settings in THIS
       order: "Initial 5", "Initial 9", "Initial 0", "FIX MAX", "FIX 0", and back again to the
       standard default setting.
     * GUARD
       Select either AUTO or MANUAL guard. Deafault is AUTO.
     * BACK DASH
       Select between On and Off; default is On.
     * BACK JUMP
       Select between "normal" (default), "Small" and "Off".
     * DEFAULT
     * EXIT
   * Key Configuration
   * DEFAULT
   * EXIT

 6> MISCELLANEOUS
__________________


6.1> SECRETS

 - SECRET CHARACTERS
   To select Hinata2, Natsu2, Tiffany2 and Kyoko2 you have first to "buy" them at the shop (each
   costs 3000 points). After you've bought them simply press "START" before selecting them, the
   icon will change into the second version of the character you want to select. Note that the
   only differences between the normal version and the "2" version is the outfit and the Team Up
   Techinque, which is an attack-type-one instead that a recover-type-one.



6.2> YE OLD SHOPPE

For now i've discovered only a few things 'bout the shop. First of all it really seems that the
old woman really appears randomly. To make her appear instead of the young woman it's not that
hard. Go into the shop by selecting the first option in the Omake Menu. If there is no sign of
an old woman exit the shop; you'll be back in the Omake Menu, then re-enter the shop and re-do
the process from the beginning until you find youself face to face with the old woman.
The old woman has lower prices and that's not all, she has some object that can't absolutely be
found in any other way. I'm referring to the CD ICON item. In reality is a music player and its
cost is 4500, you can only buy from the old woman, as well as wallpapers 3 and 4 (while the
young girl hold the 1 and 2).

Other few things on the shop, when you finish a game with a char you'll be able to buy his/her
ending from the shop (either with the young or old woman). Its cost should be 400 if I remember
correctly...

Another thing, as you may have noticed the first 2 icons are cards, with the first option (200
points) you'll buy a single card, with the second one you'll buy 10 cards. The fact is that
everytime you chose one of this option will be randomized a number, that number will be the
card's number u have bought, and ad in reality if you already have it nothing happens...
While istead if you don't have it it will appear in the card menu.

The are several object that i don't know how to make appear, as well as some endings with ????
written... Perhaps is something related to School Mode and Edited characters.
I'll give you more info as soon as i'll get them.

 7> ADVANCED TECHNIQUES
________________________


 - TEXTBOOK COMBO - THE BASICS
   Press the next button while your character's previous attack in in motion and has yet to
   connect with the opponent. Restrain your opponent with it.

 - TARDY COUNTER - IT'S ALL IN THE TIMING
   Your opponent can easily beat your Tardy Counter attack unless you perform it at the right
   time. As soon as you succed, aim a Rival Launcer or Burning Vigor Attack to guard the
   opponent's attack while he is wide open.

 - BURNING VIGOR ATTACK - TIMING IS EVERYTHING
   During a Burning Vigor Attack, your character is invincible, byt only for a short time. It is
   hard to hit your opponent if you just perform this attack normally. Combine it with Textbook
   Combo or Tardy Counter for greater Success.

 - TEAM UP TECHNIQUE - TIMING IS MOST IMPORTANT
   Take advantage of the long invincible time. Basically, use this as a counterattack when your
   opponent performs a Tardy Counter, Team Up Technique, Get Up or Dash Attack. It is hard to
   hit your opponent if you just perform this attack normally. Let your opponent attack and then
   fight back.

 - DODGING - USE EFFICIENTLY
   Use dodging efficiently. You can escape from all your opponent's fireballs by dodging. You
   lose vitality if you just guard them. If you succed in dodging while near your opponent and
   get behind him, knock him down with the Team Up Technique or whatever works!

 - THROW - SUPER IMPORTANT
   After fighting the same as opponent for a while, your offense and defense become predictable. 
   Now's the tme to learn how to use Throw effectively. A Throw is not affected by the
   invincible time of the Team Up Technique or Burning Vigor Attack. Incorporate Throw into your
   usual attack and your win rate will skyrocket.

 - READING YOUR OPPONENT'S STRATEGY IS THE KEY
   Observe your opponent's attack pattern carefully in the first round. You will have the
   advantage if you know when to counterattack. Conversely, you should always have several
   patterns of attacking so your opponent cannot read your strategy completely at each round. At
   least have a few attacking patterns of two characters. When you find yourself at a
   disadvantage, change characters.

 - HUMILIATE YOUR OPPONENT!
   Humiliating your opponent is not only a really entertaining thing to do, it's also a way to
   make him nervous and let him become predictable, or open his guard... The good thing about it
   is that his "nervousism" will almost certainly remain even if you change game!!!
   I make an example: i often play with one of my friend, i'm better than him in Rival Schools
   he's better than me in Tekken 3, by humiliating him in Rival Schools and then changing the
   game to Tekken 3 he remains nervous and i became able to beat him hard!!!
   There are several ways to humiliate your enemy, the more useful is REPEATING patterns and
   moves, i make some examples:
   * Continue spinning around him and his moves for a bit, then strike him with the SAME attack
     and then restard the pattern
   * Do the same combo, both on air (beginning it with a Rival Launcher) and on the ground
   * If you know the range of his fireballs simply stay still JUST at the end of the fireballs
     range; the fireball will diseappear and OBVIOUSLY u'll take no damage!
   * Taunt them, you'll obtain the double effect of make your enemy very upset and to fill up
     very fast your Burning Vigor Gauge!
   There are even more ways, just think them for yourself!! But i must admit that you'll make me
   a favour by sending them to me... ^____-
