    when you are in kumite character selection screen--hit the select button and it will allow you to select your character file from your memory card.

    Yah, it took me a couple of tries to figure this out as well. It's really not explained very clearly that you need to hit select to get the 'real' character selection.

    It was a real letdown to progress really far in Kumite and not realize it wouldn't save. Helpful to know this.. [​IMG]
    Such a deep game.. the option screens go on and on... I particularly enjoy the free training mode, where you can set whether you opponent is standing, crouching, punches back, kicks back.. you basically own every move your opponent makes and it allows for some pretty good training.
    The tutorial is also very comprehensive. VF4 has total respect for fighting newbies like me and doesn't assume that every gamer has memorized all the combo codes for Super Alpha Street Turbo Fighter 3XA4 1/2. [​IMG]

    p.s. Oscar, your Kung Fu may be strong, but it cannot withstand the brute force of Jeffrey McWild! [​IMG][​IMG]

    While I hate to see people having problems, it is nice to know that I'm not the only one that this happened to! [​IMG]
    On a semi-related note, on the character setup screen (where you select costume items, etc...), does the screen jitter/bounce wheneven you select a new item? It's like the screen gets interrupted when the disk seeks the new data. Weird.

    i would love to see an official thread where we can talk about fighting strategies.

    when is the ps2 gonna go online?!!! i want to fight HTF forumers!!! i have been in love with vf games since the first vf.

    even though i play with either pai or leon, i also wanted to play akira or shun, but they are really hard to master. in my opinion, it is impossible to master akira with a controller : we need a nice joystick. but anyway, if you guys could find avi files where a player who has mastered shun di is playing against somebody else, please tell me. i really want to know the tactics used... i mean, it is really frustrating to get the old man drunk. there are lots of moves that can only be unleashed when he is drunk!!! i also want to know WHEN would be the good time to use his silly stances. they are silly, but beautiful...

    If you're really looking for some competition check out one of the well-known arcades in Cali (Southern Hills Golfland springs to mind). The best Capcom, Tekken, SC, and VF players in America reside there (though the EC holds the crown in MvC2, and not too far behind in Tekken [​IMG]). For international VF play, Korea and Japan is where it's at but the movies are a little hard to find if you can't read the language. They'll blow your mind once you watch them though.
    Here are a few VF resources:
    High-level Korean and Japanese movies
    www.fighters.net(Old Japan VF4 Tourney)
    www.virtuafighter.com (decent forum & the media section)
    www.virtuaproject.com
    www.massystems.com (Super Pro-stick)
    As for playing fighting games on the net, don't hold your breath. Unfortunately lag time is a killer for fighters. [​IMG]

    I think the basic idea is to do a move or the movement of the move while the character is doing another move. This way when the character finishes the first move, he/she automatically starts the second move.

    I cant imagine a fighting game would work online until the net is fast enough that lag isnt an issue anymore. I would think with the speed and timing involved, any lag at all would just ruin the experience.

    I simply let my cat walk on the controller for a while personally......

    Actually, I have never seen a fighting game that required so much strategy. i went as far as buying the Strategy Guide for this game, which is something i NEVER do.

    But it only really shows you how to pull moves off and some general strategy on beating the AI if you're stuck. Good things will come from this thread.
