       4. Move List
       5. Secrets(?)

      >Shao Lin is a nice game. It doesnt look as 
       great as Tekken, nor does it have specials of
       Street Fighter, but it does add a few new 
       elements in fighting games. Like fighting 
       against "8" (including yourself) in a 
       free-for-all, or the rpg elements of the story
       mode. One thing which was really missing is a
       move list in the pause menu (which is now a 
       staple in all fighting games). This faq is for 
       those who have the game and want to quick check
       the moves before fighting.

             characters, and the secret mode. 0124

      >All the moves were copied from the game, I 
       havent used all of them yet, so I cant 
       guarantee that all of it works. Ill correct 
       them as soon as I finish the whole game.

NOTE: Hung Gar is totally different from the rest of 
      the schools. Instead of having just one Qi 
      Stance, you have four stances. The style also 
      has the conventions of throws, multiple 
      attacks, and sidesteps but it isnt listed on 
      the movelist. Not only that, there seems to be 
      some mix-ups about the attacks and the stances.

      them out.

      >Time Attack 
        = Once you finish the game this mode appears 
          in the first menu. You go through the first 
          test in the Shaolin Shrine, but it is timed 
          (of course). Plus you have the option to save 
          your time (no names, just your time) after 
          you finish.
      >If you have any codes or any tips please e-mail 
       me (look at the top or bottom of the faq).

Thanks to "Theodosis Kastritsos" ,
for pointing out the buttons and the characters. I dont get 
to use the "Versus" mode much because I wanted to finish 
the Story mode first, so I didnt get to see the characters 
I unlocked.
