Author's notes (Introduction) Thanks for stopping in. This is my first attempt at a FAQ so please bear with me throughout the course of it. I hope to generate an interest in Chun Li in MvC2 (seeing as her popularity has plummeted due to severe changes made in her fighting mechanics). I also hope to enlighten the reader to some of Chun Li's good (though very limited) qualities. I'm not good with legal stuff, but of course this FAQ shouldn't pop up in any magazines or other websites and such without my permission. Contact me at Jcstucke@aol.com first and obtain written consent. Well without any further hold ups, lets get to it. --- II. Chun Li basics First things first, here's a key of abbreviations that will be used throughout this FAQ: (All information will be given in the assumption that your character is facing the right...duhh) U Up D Down B Back F Forward DF Down-Forward DB Down-Backward C Crouching S Standing J Jumping SJ Super-Jump DJ Double-Jump TJ Triple-Jump OTG Off-the-ground AAA Anti-Air Assist QCF Quarter circle forward QCB Quarter circle backward HCF Half circle forward HCB Half circle backward DPM Dragon Punch Motion (F,D,DF) LK Light Kick MK Medium Kick (obtained by hitting light kick twice) HK Heavy Kick LP Light Punch MP Medium Punch (obtained by hitting light punch twice) HP Heavy Punch KK Light & Heavy Kick buttons simultaneously PP Light & Heavy Punch buttons simultaneously --- On with the basics: LP Chun Li gives the opponent a quick pimp slap in the face. This is one of Basic combo starters. Though it has hardly any range, it is very quick and Most of her heavy damage will come about from expounding on this move MP Chunny uses both of her palms to deliver a quick blow to the stomach. Basically a combo filler that won't push the opponent too far away to tag On some more hits. HP Whoa! Chun Li throws a quick, hard blow to the face. Good for ending Quick little combos or knocking characters out of some supers. I'm not All to partial to using this move because nothing can follow it. Even in Corners. However, it is ideal for using in the duration of some assist Character entrances the HP will act as a bridge with Chun Li's attacks And the assist character's following attack. Better than nothing right? ^_^ HP(in close) Chunny's throw. She performs a takedown move using her shoulder. Suprisingly enough, this thing has some good priority and sets up some damaging OTG combos. Use this excessively if at all possible. Throwin' ain't cheap! Lol. LK A quick midlevel kick. Much like her LP, but has a bit more reach. I prefer LP over LK because she recovers faster from the jab, but overall its not a Very big difference. MK Identical to the LK, but this time she aims for the chest. I really don't like This move as it pushes the opponent away (unless in a corner). You wanna Only attempt this move in a corner. Other than that, its not at all Productive. HK Another big shot. Chun Li does somewhat of a vertical split and extends Her leg high above her head to deliver a kick to the chin. This is Chun Li's Launcher…and probably the reason she isn't heavily used. She's very Underpriviledged in terms of setting up air combos in MvC2, This can be Set up after an LP and LK. It can also follow MP and MK in a corner. Though this isn't a very good move, I'll discuss some means to make it Reliable later in the FAQ. F+HP A very decent move in terms of range and damage. It's the only move In Chun Li's arsenal that can follow a MP or an MK outside of a corner Chun Li extends her arms and forms a quick swirl of blue energy from her Palms. This move hits twice depending on your distance. Get well Acquainted with this move. C.LP Crouching moves are what Chun Li does best in MvC2. Her standing attacks don't really get the job done and can't be taken very far in terms of length On her crouching LP, she does a quick jab...not really anything special, but very fast and she recovers rather quickly from it. C.MP Similar to the crouching LP. She uses the same arm and deliver a stronger blow. Much like her oher Medium attacks, this one pushes the opponent away unless in a corner. However, much like her FP this is also an ideal attack to be followed by an assist. C.HP Refer back to c.MP C.LK Like most pixie style characters in this game, you want to reap the full rewards of the crouching LK. This has more reach than her crouching LP and is just as quick. Use it sparingly though...Chun Li is no Magneto lol. C.MK Chunny uses her opposite leg to do a crouching 360 of sorts. This attack pushes the opponent out of reach and should only be used for a filler during helper combos. C.HK Man oh man lol. Chun Li balances her whole body on one arm (amazing) to deliver an extra hard kick which drops any opponent. I love the range on this move and also the fact that it can be followed by her flashkick super. It outprioritizes some ground supers and is the only move that can follow up her Medium attacks. She recovers decently from it so don't be afraid to use it in some pressure games. DB.HK Chun Li does a backward flip in an attempt to land on the opponent's head. Be careful not to abuse this move. It catches some turtler's off guard if use an assist to create a diversion, but if they catch on, you'll be in a world of hurt. J.LP As far as jump ins, Chun Li has one that's particularly good, it's definitely not this one. It has some guard breaking properties to a certain extent, but don't get too hung up on this one. Almost zippo range and the same goes for the priority. It's a simple downward punch ideal for nothing than starting your air combos. J.MP Identical to the jumping LP but it reachers further downward. Obviously this for air combos, but can be used as a filler during jump in combos. J.HP Refer to J.MP J.LK Probably Chun Li's best jump in, has the most distance and won't get you brutally murdered...if you wanna jump in, jump in with this. Also a must for Chun Li's rushdown. (explained later) J.MK Chunny raises her leg at head's length to deliver a boot to the face. Same properties as the J.MP. J.HK Similar to the J.MK, but this one hits twice. This will be your basic air combo finisher. Not ideal for jump-ins. J.F+HK A straight forward strong kick. She kicks kinda high on this one so I don't recommend it on jump-ins either. Use it more or less when you're coming out of an air dash and you're trying to snuff out an assist or something to that effect. J.D+HK The old school foot stomp move, use it to prolong your air evasion and to from getting nailed by some supers. This one's very safe and I recommend fitting it into your playing style in some form or fashion. --- III. Chun Li specials Chun Li's specials are not all too rewarding for the most part either :( only a select few of them should be used out in the open. Here they go: Kikou Ken, HCF + Either punch button Chun Li thrusts her upperbody forward palms first to release a ball of blue energy (technical ain't it? lol) I like to use the LP version when I do decide to do this one. Chun Li can actually cross up herself! You can release the fireball, jump straight up and air dash rather close to the ground and you'll be on the other side before your fireball reaches the character. It can be useful at times on large characters (except Sentinel), but nothing to write home about. It doesn't hurt to try this a few times as some people will fall for it. Sen'en Shuu, HCB + Either kick button Comparable to Charlie's Moonsault Slash, this move certainly has a few uses. Chun Li turns upside down, springs back off of her hands and delivers an overhead kick. The LK version should be used mainly for counters on projectiles, FPs and things of that nature. This one moves slower, but she springs higher into the air lunging her over many projectiles and this WILL catch anyone after a missed projectile if you're timing is good. The FK version can be used for some mindgames. This one comes out rather quick and if you're close to the character, she'll simply hop all the way over them landing right next to them on the other side. Good for crossups, but you mostly only wanna use the LK version offensively and the FK version defensively. Tenshou Kyaku, DPM + Either kick button This move actually has nice properties. Nicer than some give it credit for. Chun Li turns her body at an angle and does a series of upward kicks. It's very fast and has decent priority. It's also comboable off of a mere jab which can save you the trouble of some of her harder combos when you need quick damage. The FK version comes out quicker and sorta has weird properties, I wouldn't say its invincible, but there are very few attacks that can knock her out of the starting animation...use this to your advantage. Hyakuretsu Kyaku, press either kick button rapidly An old favorite. Balancing herself on one leg, Chun Li delivers an inhuman flurry of kicks. Sadly, it doesn't have a lot of uses outside of finishing air combos. A partial reason of this is that it's been made so much harder to do. She moves those legs much faster than she used to ^_^ along with that comes more effort on your part. All I can say to this one is practice it. Seeing it in an air combo is always refreshing. --- IV. Chun Li Hyper Combos Yup, you guessed it. Her supers hinder her abilities as well :( However, if one knows a few safety tips for these, they can do a fair amount of chip damage. Here they go: Kikou Shou, QCF + PP Chunny draws back, thrusts her palms forward and creates a large blue ball of energy that surrounds her for approximately 2 seconds (if you mash like heck, you can usually get another second out of it), damaging anything that touches it (duhh). This super is actually pretty good. It comes out fast, provides a safe haven around Chunny and although it has lag afterward, only super quick characters can get a free shot off of her. When you're locked down and getting chipped to death, or you see a THC coming...if you can't escape it by jumping, throw this move out there. It outlasts many of the supers (or they'll end at almost the same time). Sometimes this will be more beneficial than blocking because Chun Li will be caught in the supers and such for a very short period of time. 3 seconds is a long time in the world of MvC2 ^_^ Senretsu Kyaku, QCF + KK Ahh...those who've seen the Street Fighter 2 Anime remember this one (*sigh* poor Vega). She lifts a leg, pauses breifly, then dashes forward with thousands of kicks, ending with somewhat of a jumpkick. This move is decent in that its pretty fast, chips good, and is actually pretty damaging on assist characters. It's also mashable for around 2 or 3 extra hits. If you're gonna use this move for chipping, I suggest the proper backup (which will be explained later). Hazan Tenshou Kyaku, DPM + KK An extended version of Tenshou Kyaku. Nothing really special about it. If you got swift hands, it's quite possible to guard break with this. Air dash low to the ground, throw a jab, when their guard lets up, bust this out soon as you hit the ground. Also, it can nail tag ins if you anticipate it. Other than that, you can use it in a few combos. Never do this out in the open for obvious reasons (you'll get thrashed when you land lol). -Now that you know what these moves are and how to do them, its time to put them into a playing medium ^_^ which is actually the fun part. --- V. Noteworthy Chun Li Attributes This is sort of a pros and cons section, however i'm going take a different route and 1) tell you what's good about her 2) list some important DOs and DON'Ts. Chun Li in MvC2 in my opinion, is the essence of a team player. Everything Chun Li does screams "Can I get a little help here?" or "Let me lend you a hand". The Chun Li we all once knew, loved, and played to no end is gone. Why? I believe Capcom wanted this game to strongly emphasize teammwork. With Chun Li being one of their flagstaff carriers, they wanted her to be able to demonstrate it in the best means possible. A lot of people dog Chun Li out because: 1) She doesn't do big damage 2) She lost that air super But I choose to stand next to the fact that she doesn't have these moves for a reason. I think Capcom intended to make her one of the best characters in this game all over again. Somewhere along the line all these tiers came up and along with that came all this keep away, traps, etc. So Chunny's out in the cold. I believe Chun Li is among the top 10 characters that are to be played in terms of other characters (meaning characters that need assists). She can set up so many helper combos its unbelievable, coupled with the fact that their fairly easy to do. When you think Chun Li, think TEAM TEAM TEAM. Lol...here are the DOs and DON'Ts for Chun Li: DOs: -DO abuse your assists -DO be very aggressive (think of her as Wolverine with no claws) -DO learn to cross up/rushdown as best you can -DO be generous with your supers (if you play hard and aggressive, she'll build sufficient meter for you) DON'Ts: -DON'T play faster than you can handle -DON'T go head up with super armor characters -DON'T "overstay your welcome" meaning don't stay in one place throwing attacks for too long. Example: An agitated Magneto isn't a happy one. Agitated Magneto = Chun Li in a body bag. -DON'T get scared and tag her out when her energy is low...if its really low, let her die. You can't afford to have your assists put in dangerous predicaments. Which brings me to the last don't. -DON'T get your assists killed. Solo Chunny = Dead Chunny. --- VI. Chun Li combos If you skipped to this section, shame on you! Lol...anyway lets get into some basic solo Chun Li combos ^_^ Ground combos 1. LP Kikou Ken xx Sen Retsu Kyaku This one does about 17 or so hits and racks up about 33 points of damage on high defense characters like Sentinel. This is definitely worth the bar. This is one of the few instances where you'd keep your attack length short and sweet. This one is an asset. And don't forget to mash more hits out of it. 2. In a corner, LP Kikou Ken xx Kikou shou (OTG c.LK xx Tenshou Kyaku or Sen Retsu Kyaku) A 16 hitter...does around 37 points of damage on highest defense characters. Of course your opponent will be able to roll out, but to be sure go for the crouching lk. Don't concern yourself too much with this one as the Sen Retsu Kyaku ender is always a better alternative. 3. LP LK c.MK c.HK xx Sen Retsu Kyaku (OTG) (can be started by a jump-in LK) A decent combo, but lets face it.....people roll lol. If you're feeling confident that you'll land this (meaning you're in a seriously heated battle and you think it could slip your opponent's mind), then go for it. Don't get too cocky with this one though, as your opponent will catch on and massacre poor Chunny. 4. LK HK xx Hazan Tenshou Kyaku Air combos 1. c.LK s.HK sj.LP LK MP MK HP/HK/or Hyaku Retsu Kyaku Chun Li's basic magic series AC clocking in at 27 points of damage on highest defense characters. I always opt to go for Hyaku Retsu Kyaku. The worst that can happen is you'll just nail the opponent with the HK. 2. c.LK s.HK sj.LP LK breif pause LP LK dj.LP LK breif pause LP LK tj.LP LK MP MK HP/HK/or Hyaku Retsu Kyaku Use this only for flash factor it actually does less damage than her basic AC! Only doing 25 points of damage. When doing this one, press the LP and LKs quickly as possible and be sure to take a very breif pause between them or a MP will come out instead of an LP. A nice looking combo, but in a heated fight you wanna stick to the one listed above. 3. In a corner, c.LK s.HK sj.LP LK MP MK HP xx d.HK The same as number one, but you can throw the foot stomp in at the end for 5 (FIVE!!) whole extra points of damage if you're doing this one in corners (making it 32 points). Always take advantage of this. Chun Li needs all the added help she can get. After doing this one, I like to tag on a double jump or a triangle jump so I can sort of pick my opening as I descend. You might just open the opponent up to another combo. More on this air tactic later... 4. In a corner, HP throw, c.LK (OTG) s.HK (follow with AC #1,2,or 3) Chun Li's throw, as I said before has a lot of priority. So if you're dumping out some pressure on the opposition in a corner, dash up and knock em on their backs. A lot of the time your opponent won't see this coming and you can get the OTG c.LK. This combo is a very safe manuever so always be willing to go for it in pressure games. 5. In a corner, Jab Kikou Ken xx Kikou Shou, c.LK (OTG) s.HK (follow with AC #1,2,or 3) As I said earlier, people roll, but if they don't, use this by all means. This one is the most damaging yet clocking in around 40 points on highest defense characters. More coming soon.... --- VII. Chun Li assists Here we'll discuss what Chunny can do from the sidelines. She's actually a very decent helper. The assists are as follows: Alpha-Projectile assist Here, Chun Li steps in, tosses out a Kikou Ken, flashes a smile, then departs. In Triple or Team Hyper Combo, Chunny lends a hand with a Kikou Shou. This one is her worst assist. It isn't quick, doesn't chip big, and doesn't help cross ups well. You can do without this one. Beta-Anti Air assist The ol AAA is very good. She hops in, quickly goes into Tenshou Kyaku, flashes that cute smile, then leaves. In Triple Hyper Combos, she does Hazan Tenshou Kyaku. This one will be an asset to a number of characters paired up with Chunny (which will be explained later) it's not as good as Cyclops' in terms of range and combo set ups, but much like it in every other way. It isn't invincible, but the only thing that can knock her out of this, is big supers such as Proton Cannon, Mega Optic Blast, and the Storm supers. Arguably Chunny's best assist. Gamma-Expansion assist Chun Li enters, does the Sen'en Shuu, flashes the pearly whites (again), and departs.This assist incorporates the best of her Triple Hyper Combo variations which is the Senretsu Kyaku. This one is to be used when you're playing with teams in which you want to establish range and play semi-aggressive keep away. A very good assist, but only in few situations. --- VIII. Psycho Chick Syndrome Before I go into the specific Chun Li fighting styles/strategies. I'd like to introduce her to the "Psycho Chick" group of MvC2. Remember those days when you first started playing and you'd face either the CPU Rogue or Storm? Do you remember how they went all out with crazy speed and killer combo linking? Well, its by no means humanly impossible. Better yet, Chun Li can do it too ^_^. Yup, thats right, Chun Li can do that insane crap even though you never seen the CPU do it. It's basically a form of rushdown in which you super jump and cancel it with a dash while still low to the ground, and upon approaching the opponent, throw a quick LK MP HP and repeat. If you're familiar with the way Rogue does this, its almost the exact same method. The key to doing this 100%, is knowing how to air dash when you're feet are just barely off the ground and being able to repeat this as many times as possible. The reason behind super jumping instead of regular jumping is that it quickens the whole process dash and all. This by far, is the most difficult thing Chun Li has to offer, but I assure you it works like a charm. Practice this a LOT. I'm the first to admit Chun Li isn't a top notch character, but being well acquainted with Chun Li's "Psycho Chick Syndrome" will make people see Chun Li in a new light. --- IX. Team specific strats (using) The following two sections of this FAQ are probably THE MOST important. Playing a good Chun Li requires knowing how she relates to the characters she's gonna be playing with. I will list only one helper combo per character to keep the FAQ from being too long. If you need any others e mail me at Jcstucke@aol.com and i'll see what I can do. Read through this section thoroughly...this is what Chunny does best ^_^ (Listed in alphabetical order) Akuma/Chun Li With: You're gonna want Akuma's Expansion assist. An Akuma/Chun Li duo is played best with cross ups and/or very aggressive pressure. You'll want to be well aware of what kind of damage Akuma might take while coming in to help and don't get him killed, but abuse him heavily to some extent. The fact that his assist is multi hitting will award Chun Li with some big damage plugged in the middle of some of her combos. I personally like to cross up with Akuma and either launch into an air combo, or Hazan Tenshou Kyaku. Due to the rate of speed at which he comes out, start all your Chun Li helper combos after having called him out first meaning don't start the combo and call him out in the middle of it. Akuma won't make it in time to prolong it in most cases so either combo off of cross ups, or call him out before you take initiative. The meter building factor for this duo is pretty good considering you're able to be very aggressive on the offense. Akuma's supers are very damaging so if Chunny needs to take a breather, don't hesitate to DHC with one of Akuma's hypers. THCs are a no-no with this team unless A) you have someone with a beam super or Storm as your third member or B) if you're ready to commit suicide lol. Of course you know Akuma's Expansion THC is a vertical super. Helper combo with Akuma Chun Li Call Akuma, dash in or cross up with LP LK MP F+HP, after Akuma's final kick HK (follow with Air combo #1, #2, or #3 listed in section VI) 50 points of damage here. You'll get more use out of this one if you cross up with it because people normally won't let you accomplish this after dashing in, unless you're punishing lag (in this case its a great idea). You can substitute the air combo for either: Hazan Tenshou Kyaku (57 pts. damage) or Kikou Shou (corner only, 50 pts. damage) I recommend saving the meter for Akuma and simply busting out the air combo (go for the triple jumper if you're low on meter). Against: Watch those feet, his Hurricane Kick outprioritizes a lot of her ground based attacks. Also you wanna watch how you use your supers. He can pop you after ANY missed super in a variety of ways and all of them are extremely painful. Keep that in mind in your pressure/air games and the rest is trial and error. Psycho chick his butt! Lol... Amingo/Chun Li With: Chun Li gets sort of the short end of the stick on this one. Chunny helps Amingo out tremendously but gets near nothing in return. His balance assist can be used for cross up tactics to an extent, but its near impossible to combo off of it. You can cross up and upon connecting with his assist, you can bust out Kikou Shou. When I play Amingo/Chun Li (which should only be if you've really picked up on playing Chunny exceptionally well), I use Amingo's Enhance assist to give me a boost of defense when i'm trying to get into the "Psycho Chick Syndrome" previously discussed. Fortunately, both of Amingo's supers DHC from Chun Li's supers so I guess that counts for something. Amingo is one of Chun Li's worst partners. Against: Amingo has one of the fastest launchers in the game by far. And a good Amingo will keep at you with this. Again, you must be careful with missed supers because you'll catch an air combo after any of them. As for those helpers, you don't want any part of those so try to be very mobile. Instead of dashing in at him, try to cancel your super jumps into air dashes to get in close and ALWAYS cover this with assists. Chun Li should come out on top of this one. -I'm still experimenting with a helper combo for this team, i'll have one up here as soon as I can for all you Amingo fans. Anakaris/Chun Li With: Having Anakaris around increases your chances for successful guard breaks, although Chun Li's guard breaks aren't rewarding in themselves, they will keep your opponent grounded to a degree which will help the ol "Psycho Chick Syndrome" and your pressure game. When someone's jumping in at you, Call Anakaris then do the DB.HK move. Anakaris should nail their defense and Chun Li will most often land on them nabbing a few extra points of damage. Of course this isn't damaging, but it defends rushdown so I'd definitely try this out on characters played with jump ins. Also you can sj and cancel into an air dash while calling out Anakaris. He'll hit their defense and you can catch them off the ground for a free air combo. DHCs are pretty rewarding with this duo as the Senretsu Kyaku DHC'ed into the Cobra Blow super (not sure about the name of it) does quite a bit of damage. Another useful thing about Anakaris/Chun Li is the way they establish range. Establishing range basically keeps the opponent at a distance without the intent of doing damage. It sort of controls the way your opponent moves allowing you chances to counter virtually anything they come at you with. Do this by using Anakaris in excess. Call him in and while he attacks high, you dash in and attack low. This will make them start jumping. Use the previously explained guard break method for this. They'll basically keep switching attack patterns and you'll be in full control of it ^_^ I know it sounds kinda deep, but you'll see what I mean if you ever decide to use this team. Helper combo with Anakaris/Chun Li In a corner, Dash in c.LP c.MP xx Anakaris assist c.HP , Anakaris hits bouncing them into the air, nail them with s.HK then air combo #1,2, or 3 from the combo section. Against: Don't be afraid to play the air against Anakaris. Be wary of the coffin drops that will ensue, but don't fear them because Chunny's fast enough to dodge them. Throw Anakaris whenever possible and don't let him catch you on your lag (his super is fast enough to link THCs off of Chun Li's missed supers). Try to stay as close as you can so you don't get snatched up in the Idle hands. This is one of the few opponents you wanna use Hyakuretsu Kyaku (the air version) on. BB Hood/Chun Li With: This is one of my favorite characters for Chun Li. BB's AAA will improve Chun Li's air dash game and her Projectile assist is great for cross ups (stand in close, call BB's missle, do the HK version of Sen'en Shuu which puts you directly on the other side of the opponent, if they attack you, they'll take the missle. If they don't attack, the missle tends to make people block high so come out of Sen'en Shuu with a quick c.LK and you just might have a free air combo). Also BB's Variety assist (shyness strike assist) comes out very quick and covers Chunny's missed supers. Any of BB's 3 assists are good enough for Chunny so choose BB's assist according to the third character you use. A very fun pair by the way ^_^ Helper Combo In a corner, LP + call out BB Hood's AAA, MP xx LP Kikou Ken xx Kikou Shou (OTG c.LK s.HK sj.Air combo #1,2,or 3 from section VI) Let me reiterate the fact that people roll. Without the OTG you get 48 points of damage so it isn't very bad considering it's Chun Li. With the OTG it's 57 points so if the opportunity presents itself, realize it and take it! Against: Take advantage of BB's short limbs by playing semi-agressive keep away. Do NOT do any supers out in the open. Cool Hunting is almost always sure to follow. Chun Li is faster than BB Hood, but if you dash in at her from the air too wrecklessly, the cheer and fire will win everytime. It's perfectly ok to play scared against BB Hood lol. Meaning if you think a super is coming, whether it is or not, hit the high road. Because of BB's lack of reach, she can sometimes be prone to the head stomp move. Always be willing to try this and when you do, be sure to pause in the air and try to get her to do the Cool Hunting, then quickly double jump back over her head and nail her with a THC or whatever you want. I repeat, be safe rather than sorry and don't shy away from bein a punk lol... Blackheart/Chun Li With: You have a safe haven in the skies with Blackheart's AAA on your side. You can use this to set up some guard breaks that will actually accumulate some damage by tapping them in the air with a jab, and calling Blackheart after a double jump. After this, triple jump and dash toward them on their way down and you can get a few extra shots. Other than guard breaks, Blackheart is basically just used to help the damage on combos with good DHC possibilities and to keep runners in check. A great teammate overall as he helps Chun Li to play better, but doing most of the work on her own. Helper Combo Coming soon.... Against: Here's a match where learning how to air dash as close to the ground as you can is almost essential. If someone has Blackheart, they probably have Sentinel so you don't wanna stand in one spot. Not to mention, if you hang out in the air too long, you'll catch an inferno. So whenever you approach Blackheart, cancel a sj. into a forward air dash and nail him. Her speed can beat him out a lot of the time, but putting up with Sentinel simulataneously is about the only thing that makes this difficult. Also watch out for corners, some people are cruel enough to pull the Blackheart infinite on Chunny lol. Due to disk space, I have to send the rest of the characters and the other sections in as an update, stay tuned...i'll have them for you very soon.
