    Fatal Fury mark of the wolves (Garou mark of...):   FAQ 2000. 
This is a basic faq for combos or stranges combinations.
I know that it isn´t a master faq, but I think it´s enough good for iniciating at this game.
Thanks to everybody that have played vs me for being there to get this faq (especialty to ACE).
And thanks to SNK for doing this wonderfull fighting game.

Dedicated to my brother,Luisfer,wherever you were.

                       This faq is done by MGA (Miguel@anit.es).

Garou mark of the wolves is a SNK game and he has all the copyrights propieties.   

Sorry if I confuse in writing,for instance qcf instead of qfc.
*This faq is composed by:
   -Basic combos (4 per character)
   -Advanced & Expert combos
   -Other things(like infinite combos, combos that can work, advices for doing combos, etc.)

I´ve get all this combos by playing and playing and playing (and somethimes trying new things).
It´s true that I´ve seen another faqs to view all the moves (not the combos) but I don´t want to 
keep anybody the merit of their faqs. This is only a faq of combos.
Remember not to confuse d(down) with D(button D) and b(back) with B(button B).Here we go!:

 1)4 Basic combos/player for the first time:
 If you have played Garou more than 2 times with each character, I´ll recommend you to go to the
 advanced combos.
 Almost all combos start in jump, but you can start for another part, or try new basic moves.
 a) Jump+C, C, qcf+C
 b) Jump+C, C, (f,d,df+C)

 Military basic combos.

 This is a thrower character. I haven´t played with him almost never, but I think he has 
 few combos. Try you to think in something.

 Combos of Grant.

 KAIN R. HEINLEIN: {same choice as Grant}
 I have played with him less than with Griffon. He needn´t any combo.
 |            So here end the basic 1st part. Now we can go to more serious things.          |

 This part is planted diferent than the first one. I have done a scheme of advanced combos.
 Some of this combos request having the Potencial power charged.
 Of course there are more advanced combos than I have put here, but I played with some characters
 more than whit others,and some combos aren´t so effectives or interestings than others.
 I repeat that all the combos that are here down have been done at least one time by me.

       here, after C and before any continuation you can break the double kick by pressing f+a+b, 
       (it´s a feint move),do a ligth punch or kick and continue with *some* of the combinations.

/Here ends the Advanced & Expert combos that I get by playing.I´m sure that there are much more \
\interesant combos I have done, but I can´t remember all of them. I will continue trying news.  /

 In this part I will write other combos that can work, or anothers that I read and can´t get it
 yet (I think they have something wrong), or some advices to get easier the advanced combos. Also
 I have discover one of the game´s infinite combos (surely that they are more).

 This is an infinite combo of Grant (yes, I know that is difficult to get Grant, but this combo
 is much more). For this combo you need to have the opponent on a corner. Grant have a move (f+C)
 that is called Ma-Heki.This moves can be canceled (breaked) by a Feint move (f+A+C).So the combo
 consists in doing: f+C(Break by f+A+C),f+C(Break by f+A+C),f+C(f+A+C),f+C(f+A+C),...etc. 
 It´s very, very difficult to do (I can only do 4 moves of the combo), because you have to 
 calculate the time to hit him in an exactly moment.But if someone is a Great Master of Garou 
 can try to do it. GOOD LUCK and report me if you get it!

 Oh my god!. I´ve discover an easier infinite combo for Grant than the last one. You only have to 
 do, in a corner: f+C,qcf+D,f+C,qcf+D,f+C,qcf+D,f+C,qcf+D,f+C,qcf+D,...etc. Easier, eh?
 Doing this combos I´ve hit the enemy by 35 times, but it´s enough with 10 hits to kill the 
 Note:This combo will not work if you change qcf+D with qcf+B.

 Here are other combos that can work, or combos that I read that work,but Idon´t do it yet `cause
 I don´t much time to dedicate to this game. I have tried some of these, but I think they have
 something wrong, or They are too difficult for me, or something like that. Here are:
 GATO:Jump D, Dwn + A+B, QCB + B, Dwn C, QCFx2 + C
 KIM DONG HWANG:stand D cancelled into Fwd A+C, Jump A, QCFx2+A, QCFx2+A, DP + C
 TERRY: Fwd Fwd C, 3 feint cancelled stand Cs followed by a low C into QCFx2 + C! BUSTER WOLF!

 -If you have to do (f,d,df+some button), try to the move before this one whit forward, and you
 only have to do qcf+button. For instance:
 a)...--C--(f,d,df+D)--... I recommend to do like: ...--f+C--qcf+D--... 
 b)...--f+C--(f,d,df+C)--... like: ...--f+C--qcf+C--...

 -When you want to do a combo taht you need to break a move, I recommend to practice the specific
 breakable move breaking it before the combo, because all the characters have differente way for
 breaking his move (changing the time to break). Also be carrefull, because some of chars need to
 break very quickly his move, and others not.

 -When you have to calculate the time to do a determinated combo, you can do another hit that 
 doesn´t hit the opponent but it limits you the time you have to wait for doing correctly the
 combo. For instance: When we want to do the combo of D. HWANG that finished: qcf+D--qcfX3+C we
 have to wait a bit of time to do the last move, or we´ll passed under the opponent, so what I do
 is: After qcf+D I do C fastly. This move don´t hit him, but if I do qcfx3+C after the last move,
 the combo always work.

 -If you have to do a combo that consist in Hold d,u+Button--Hold b+f+Button (as Kain combos) you
 can use one trick that I use: Hold db intead of hold d, and do u+Button--b,f+Button (without 
 holding aby button the second time). I Know it´s difficult, but by the other way form is more 

 You can invent some 'tricks' like those one to do easier the combo. 

 |                 I think they are a good advices. Let´s go to the petitions                  |

 I only beg one thing: If you are going to use a part of this faq to do another one, please send
 me an E-mail(miguel@anit.es) to beg a permit to use that part of my faq (I will concede it with 
 pleasure) or write in your faq that you have used one part of mine, because I´ve seen some faqs
 that have something exactly copied (without any change) from others.

/ Here finished all I remember about doing Garou combos. I will continue working on getting some\ 
\ new combos and doing new faqs.Thanks to all that have read this faq & sorry about my expession/
