====================================================================== S T R E E T F I G H T E R A L P H A GameBoy Color FAQ v1.7 by Jxt ====================================================================== Contents; 1; The FAQ, who what when why how where? 2; The game, a basic intro 3; Main section, Character moves and combos 4; Tricks 5; Known bugs, screw-ups and differences 6; Credits ************************************** * * * 1; Who what when why how where? * * * ************************************** ALL possible questions answered here! (Almost) Who? - The author ----------------- This FAQ was written by Jxt ([email protected]). I am a videogame addict, and love all StreetFighter games, and fighting games in general. What? - What is this document? ------------------------------ This is an FAQ designed for people who have just bought StreetFighter Alpha for the GameBoy Color, and want to know the moves, etc. When? - Versions ---------------- v1.00 - 1/21/2000 FAQ Started, and rushed out to be the first one in www.gamefaqs.com - that makes three out of three of my FAQs! v1.01 - 1/24/2000 Added moves I forgotten plus a few bugs concerning Rose,and a couple more Chun-Li combos. Also covered the small throw bug, and Alpha Counters. v1.02 - 2/3/2000 Resisting temptation to skip versions to generate a more interesting version number:). Dan, Sagat and Akuma combos now in. Added a Ryu combo, and a Birdie combo, and added more to the glitches section, mainly about the ending screwup. VERY subtle changes to layout. Hey, did anyone notice that I forgot to change the version number at the top? Whoops! v1.03 - 2/10/2000 Another bug, and ANOTHER move that I forgot! Whoops! Resisting temptation to skip versions... v1.04 - 2/17/2000 Nearly covered everything I possibly can. Added copyright section, to *try* and counter plagiarism. I keep forgetting things. This time it was how to roll. v1.05 - 6/3/2000 Added changes from arcade version, as _so_ many people have asked. Well, not me (Why not?) but people on the GameFAQs message boards. Corrected a mistake. One of Ken's combos had somehow crept into Akuma's list. v1.666- 6/22/2000 Completely removed those CjayC-unfriendly TABs ;) Added a minor change about Guy's combos, a trick to fight Akuma, and changed the version number: Whoops, I did it again! (Sorry Britney ;) I left v1.05 stating it was v1.04! I also corrected the above date (I had it in European notation) v1.7 - 6/29/2000 Made the transformation to a better version number system. Corrected some BAD spelling mistakes, and layout flaws, since it was left a mess when I removed the TABs. As a point of interest, previous versions of this FAQ are available, should you (For some silly reason) want them. Just mail me ([email protected]). Why? - Why do this FAQ in the first place? ------------------------------------------ Because the GBC version of SFA is cool, although a little different from, say, the arcade version. How? - Was it done? ------------------- Pointless question, in MS Notepad, when I should be doing college work. Where? - Another pointless question ----------------------------------- In the UK. I believe we got GBC SFA first. The US finally got it. Nice. As far as I can tell, it's the same as Our version, but if not (Tell from reading this FAQ) then please let me know, so my FAQ has not suffered in any way.. And what's with the Britney Spears reference? --------------------------------------------- Sorry, but I think she's cute. For the record, I watch her videos In 'Mute;... :) Or with NIN playing! ;) AND, I think her mate Christina Aguilera is cuter.

Game ---- This is the conversion of arcade hit StreetFighter Alpha, which was a progression from Super SF2 Turbo, but a prequel to SF2. History ------- Previous SF games were; StreetFighter (or Fighting Street) StreetFighter 2 The World Warrior StreetFighter 2 Champion Edition StreetFighter 2 Hyper Fighting Super StreetFighter 2 The New Challengers Super StreetFighter 2 Turbo (or X) The Ultimate Championship StreetFighter: The Movie (BTW Which should be avoided at all costs) Game Descritpion ---------------- If you have never played a SF before, then here is a brief summary of how the game is played; o; Leave your cave, it's sunny outside. o; You pick a fighter and fight against eight opponents, in best-of- three fights. o; In order to win the fight you must hit your opponent until their energy bar is razed to nothing. Controls -------- Here are the controls for GBC SFA; Menu Up Jump ^ (A) Kick/Selection Change Setting Change Setting (B)Punch Walk < > Walk Block V Menu Down Crouch [SELECT] [START] Taunt/Chouhatsu Pause Menu ************************************** * * * 3; Characters, Combos, Moves * * * ************************************** Legend ------ First here is a list of my terminology for this FAQ; *****NOTE: EVEN SFA VETERANS READ THIS AS SOME GBC MOTIONS DIFFER***** This is because, the programmers of GBC SFA decided that the pad was unresponsive for the motions, so went about to simplify them. If, like myself, you are extremely accurate anyway you may find trying to pull off the unsimplified motion a pain here, so I have listed the motions as there are, as they are pulled off. Key U=Up,D=Down,F=Forward and B=Back. 2 letters is a combination, or a diagonal of two directions. FB - Basically a half fireball motion D,DF FB! - The PROPER Fireball motion D,DF,F DP - Simplified Dragon Punch Motion F,D RDP - Reverse Dragon Punch B,D SB - Sonic Boom Motion Hold B,2sec,F FK - Flash Kick motion Hold D,2sec,U PCF - Partial Circle Forward B,BD,D,DF PCB - Partial Circle Back F,DF,D,BD HK - Half a hurricane Kick Motion D,DB SFB - Super Fireball Motion D,DF,F,D,DF,F * SHK - Super Hurricane Kick D,DB,B,D,DB,B * SSB - Super Sonic Boom Hold B,2sec,F,B,F ** SFK - Super Flash Kick Hold DB,2sec,DF,DB,U *** 360 - Full circular, 360 motion F,UF,U,UB,B,BD,D,DF,F 720 - Double circular motion Double the above p - lightly tap B P - PRESS B k - lightly tap A K - PRESS A Pp - B, doesn't matter how Kk - A, doesn't matter how (?) - Bracketed buttons means HOLD the button. J - means you have to be jumping KkKk- Mixed case means rapidly tap the button. * Has to be pulled of slower then usual (IE in Arcade SFA) ** The last part (F,B,F) has to be done REALLY fast *** This is a bitch to do, make sure you don't leave the crouch position until the UF. Sorry, but you can no longer do the simpler variants of this. It has to be done *FAST*, too! ALL COMBOS HAVE BEEN PERFORMED/VERIFIED ON GBC VERSION OF SFA Alpha Counters -------------- An Alpha Counter (AC) is where you block an assailant's attack and send one right back. To AC your opponent, BLOCK your opponent's strike, and simply tap the required button whilst still blocking. NOTE: This cannot be done without at least one level of your SC gauge, as it uses up a level. The required button? Depends on your character; Ryu: P Dragon Punch Chun-Li: K The (Missing) D+MK Charlie: P F+HP Ken: P Dragon Punch Guy: K The (Missing) D+MK Birdie: P Bull Horn Sodom: P The (Missing) Medium JitteStrike Adon: K RisingJaguar Rose: P 'Exchange Throw' Sagat: K A kick Dan: K D+HK Akuma: K D+HK Bison: P HP Rolling ------- Rolling is fairly useless, IMO, but to roll past an opponent, after getting hit, and knocked down, press B,BD,D+P. Note that the original arcade bug of being able to roll when KO'ed is fully intact.

You're kidding me? ++++++++ TO FIGHT BISON ++++++++ ...Is the same as fighting Akuma, but hold SELECT as well. ************************************** * * * 5; Known bugs/screw-ups/changes * * * ************************************** All bugs and screw-ups were found by myself, Jxt unless noted. AKUMA: Note his air Hurricane Kick, and the fact that Weak/Fierce are swapped around, so you TAP A for FIERCE and PRESS it for WEAK. Actually, sometimes he _only_ has either his LK or HK one and won't do the other. SAGAT: His SC TigerShot can only be done at L1 DANCING SAGAT: Play the game, but don't finish it. Instead, keep losing and continuing so that you eliminate all possible characters. Play as Charlie (vs Bison) and lose. Now continue as Adon, and Sagat acts just a little freaky. ??? WIERDNESS: Occasionally on the next match screen, foes you have already defeated will still have the ? over them. ENDINGS: For some reason, if you can fluke the following you will get the WRONG ending. From the RANDOM SELECT; o; Play as Anyone with Sagat as boss o; Get to Sagat o; Lose and continue o; Pick Sodom, and Sagat be your next character (Not the last) (NB: Pick him from random select again) o; Win, and be presented with Ryu's ending. WTF? I can only hypothesise, that, the game wasn't programmed to Alter which ending its going to show correctly with regards the Random Select function. ROSE: Rose's PERFECT win pose is screwed up. Finish a bout with any of the SC Soul Throws, and the screen Does NOT starburst, how it should when finishing with SC. THROWING: Throws are now performed WITHOUT a direction. I.e just the Punch or Kick buttons. You *can* direct the throw, but they work as just the button. DRAW!: You can't. A double K.O will always have you, the player win. OPTION?: The speed settings have no effect. 9:9:8: For some reason, you can jump straight up, whilst going through the forward jump animation. Not all the time, but often, when jumping after landing from any special that leaps you in the air, such as Shoryuken. (As a side-note, I'd just like to say that CrawFish interactive can't really have good testers. There are a lot of bugs in this game, I found five of these within the first DAY of play. Very 'extreme' testers there, if they couldn't find these. Or was the game rushed for the UK release?) Hey, I'm UK-based and cheap! Hire me! :D Or tell me the character codes :) Changes ------- Changes from the arcade to this version; o; Obviously the lack of buttons. See above. o; Simpler motions. See above. o; Characters are only 3 colors. Here is a list of the colors; RYU- As usual KEN- As usual GUY- As usual ADON- Now has black hair, black stripe on shorts. BIRDIE- Again, the black hair. CHUNLI- No yellow stripe. Vs color is all green. CHARLIE-All green or blue. ROSE- Black hair. SAGAT- Black stripe on shorts. He just wears white or grey. SODOM- Black helmet and pants. BISON- Doesn't wear his cape. AKUMA- Black hair. Looks cool, actually. DAN- Black hair. o; Flaming moves turn opponent red, but there is no flame. o; There are no impact effects o; Super Combos have no shadows o; Secret Character codes are different. Still not found them. o; There is no combo counter o; Sodom's Alpha counter slides about two screens across o; There are no win quotes o; Chun-Li's HK TehnShoKyaku is only 2 hits, it's just a MK one. o; There is no music on the select screen o; Characters who had similar stages now share stages, and music. The only change between character stages is Ken and Charlie's. o; Charlie's stage has no betting people, instead it is now just a different color from Ken's. o; Music is also shared. o; Music seems to be remixed versions of the themes o; M.Bison has no cape o; There is no juggling after a K.O, I.e. A shoryureppa would usually continue to hit whilst the background is a starburst. Here it does not. o; Guy's air somersault throw seems to have double it's previous range. o; Charge times (Chun-Li, Charlie, Birdie, Bison) are longer o; If you select from random select, lose and continue, the random select does not 'hold' your previous character. o; The introduction is missing. Instead there is a list of credits o; The endings are just text o; There are no moving particles in the starburst background when finishing with a L3 SC. o; Sodom's Alpha Counter goes about two screens distance now. Cool. o; You can no longer batter the buttons to add to the end of a L3 Jaguar Assault with Adon. Boo. o; The animation for Dan's Koryuken is strange. The last 'standing' frame of animation (2nd frame) is shown for longer, but this is cool. It makes it look like it 'sweeps' off the floor. Nice. o; Characters have no shadows on the floor. o; Rose only flames (Read: Turn blue) opponents with throws, not other moves, that should. o; Roses 'Soul Illusions' now just turns her blue, and extra hits are now substituted for extra damage. o; Akuma's Messatsu-Gou-Shoryu can only be done at L3. o; Sodom's L3 SC PowerBomb doesn't end with the rug-burn. Waaah. o; Birdie's chain throw range is terrible. Even if you are next to them now, there is no guarantee that it will connect. o; Chun-Li's Kikoushou doesn't _always_ knockdown, meaning that my terrific Kikousho to Hazan-TehnShoKyaku corner juggle is now mostly obsolete, which is why it's not in the listing. You can try, though. o; No vs mode in *ANY* way, shape or form. Boo. o; Guy's Special air throw has unlimited range, provided you press P on the way downward. Makes it very easy with Guy. D'oh! o; Guy's Final Fight combo (LP,LP,MP,HK,HK) is missing, purely because all the MEDIUM attacks are missing, albeit in Alpha Counters. Thanx to Marco Sainte Jr. for this. If anyone has any more differences, please mail them to me, and get your name in print. Please, I'm lonely :) ************************************** * * * 6; Credits & Acknowledgements * * * ************************************** Thanx to; Jxt (Myself); Writing this FAQ. John "Firehawke" Pealsey: For the 'Fight Akuma Code'. Cheers. E-Mail [email protected] Marco Sainte Jr;He points out that another difference is that Guy's Final Fight combo (LP,LP,MP,HP,HK) is missing. This I already knew, and guessed it was common sense, as the MP is missing - which I mentioned. However, I thank him for mentioning this, as maybe this was a little short-sighted of me not to mention it anyway. E-Mail him at [email protected] Kao Megura/Chris MacDonald; His site inspired my copyright message. His FAQs inspire all. Kao, please mail me, so I can make friends jealous (We're all big fans!) Do you think my FAQ needs work? Big respect to; NSmoke/ShinStarmie (John Evans, [email protected]) And that's all. Feel free to contribute (Send to [email protected], and make sure you let me know what the contribution is for in the subject). ----------------------------EnD tRaNsMiSsIoN--------------------------
