just to repeat -

the "msh" romset doesn't work so use "mshu". (US 951024)

frame counting shouldn't be necessary since the game displays the total time on the "Today's Result" screen...

Ah... you're right BBH, thanks for reminding us. Question: what's the time penalty for continuing? Or is there one?

I don't think a continue penalty will be necessary this time - when you continue the timer is still running, and starting the match over will cost a bit fof time since the previous rounds got you absolutely nowhere. I think. Let's try it like that and see what happens. :)

I think that must be time for continue.

14:53:55. No sound.

I have problem with speed this game because my processor is too slow.

Cool game, but I don't understand combos(in every fighting game :) ). How key combinations you use BBH for your combos? I read faq on gamefaqs and I know nothing.

Ok, I didn't think Celerons were quite THAT much slower than Athlons or Pentiums... I had no speed issues with most CPS-2 games on my old 950MHz Athlon (although recent MAME versions had problems only when recording Vampire Saviour). This is all with sound on too. The main issue I had was with RAM. 128MB was not enough.

As far as doing air combos go, each character has a 'launcher' move (eg: Shuma-Gorath's is a standing MK [button 2]). Immediately after connecting with a launcher, you can just push up to do a super jump and quickly do a number of moves from weak to strong (LP,MP,HP or LK,MK,HK generally work and are fairly easy to do). In some cases, you can add a special move into an air combo, instead of HP or HK.

Ah... hopefully this will make the competition more tighter in the last three days. Thanks for the info, Mike. :)

should've replied to this sooner but Barry mostly got it covered...

first of all, I'll go by what MAME calls the button numbers... 1 = Jab Punch, 2 = Strong Punch, 3 = Fierce Punch, 4 - Short Kick, 5 = Forward Kick, 6 = Roundhouse Kick.

the most important thing to remember in combos is that you can "cancel" any of these normal moves into a special or super move. You have to do it quickly so that the animation for the attack "cancels", of course.

So, every character has at least one "launcher" attack that sends the opponent into the air. For Magneto, it's his Down+3 attack. If the opponent doesn't block they get sent into the air, to follow after them just hold Up.

Once you're in the air, you can do a number of attacks. The basic "chain" that each character can do is 1, 4, 2, 5, and then a "finishing" attack. Pushing 3 or 6 in an air combo will always send them back down, so a decent basic combo can always go 1, 4, 2, 5, 3 or 1, 4, 2, 5, 6. Alternately, you can also cancel the fourth hit into a special or super. Magneto can do 1, 4, 2, 5, EM Disruptor (b, db, d, df, f + Punch). Or if he has a super level charged, 1, 4, 2, 5, Magnetic Tempest (d, df, f + 2 Kicks).

This game is probably way too deep to learn in a week, but eh I wanted to see if it could get some other people playing it since I thought there had been enough platformers...
