Ehrgeiz - Cloud FAQ v2.0
last updated 4/18/98

Note: this FAQ is _far_ from finished, and is probably full of mistakes.
Also, I'm trying to write down these moves from memory, so if anyone knows
the true way to do these moves, please contact me.

"God Bless the Ring!"  
(Amen to that, brother! Can I get a witness up in heah?  ^_~)

How to get Cloud
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

There are no codes to get Cloud. Period.

Like Tekken, Ehrgeiz is on a Time-Release system, which means that the
machine will release new characters after a certain amount of time.

Time Release schedule (needs to be confirmed):

30 days: Cloud
60 days: Tifa
90 days: Django (who looks a lot like Red13, BTW)
120 days?: Armored Django?

	(from takedown, hit l or h repeatedly to pound opponent's face
	 & a roll throw)

Tactics
=-=-=-=

Rope-a-Dope
Hold G while moving around with the joystick, and you'll move while facing
your opponent; akin to Quake's strafing. While this might not be news to
veteran Ehrgeiz players, there are some cool things you can do while 
strafing.

a) Rope-A-Dope: Muhammad Ali, eat your heart out. One of the great things
about the Rope-A-Dope is that it allows you evade and retaliate without
running out of control and possibly forcing you to miss. 
	
b) More Control, Less Running: Another great thing about the Rope-A-Dope is
that the computer still thinks you're running. Try this: Rope-a-Dope your
opponent, and when you see an opening, move towards your opponent, release
Guard and press g+l+h. Instant takedown without running like a chicken
without it's head cut off. Lots of fun for the Gracie Jujutsu family. :P

Use the Sword
Okay, this may sound stupid, but use Cloud's Materia Blade whenever possible.
The great thing about the Blade is that it has great reach and lots of power.
Also, if you have your opponent in the corner, your opponent would have to be
Jackie Chan to get out of there... :P Also, doing a high jump Braver is great 
when trying to retreat.
