                           Moves List, v7.0

I kinda went stealth with v6.0, because I didn't have time to post the
faq due to end of the semester studying.  So, if you didn't pick up 6.0
up from a site, you'll see a few changes.  The major reason for this
release is the new Kuroko section.  Enjoy!

Any comments, suggestions, or corrections are welcome.  Send them to
my address at rfj105@psu.edu.

This move list is ftp archived, courtesy of Gamepro's Andy Eddy.  The
ftp address is "ftp.netcom.com", in "pub/vi/vidgames/faqs".  My faq
is labeled as "samsho2.mov"

Andy's site is mirrored at "cencongopher.concordia.ca", by ftp or
gopher.  The site is maintained by Paul Schwartz, and the good stuff is
in "pub/JustTheFaqs/VideoGames".

GeeSe Howard also has a copy of this list at his excellent NeoGeo
site, which contains everything you've ever wanted to know about
NeoGeo games and systems.  The address is "kaiwan.kaiwan.com", in
the "/user/dvillnva/" directory.  FAQs are in the "neogeo_faqs"
directory, with mine labeled "samsho2.mov"

You may also find this FAQ in the Fighting Games Archive maintained
by Dave Kirsch.  You'll find everything on fighting games from FAQs
to fan art here.  The address is "ftp.krl.caltech.edu".  You can find

my work in "pub/fighting/ss2" as "SamuraiShowdown2.moves"

Finally, if you paid any money for this list, you were suckered. This
is free information, so distribute widely.  However, the art and
layout of this list is copyrighted, so please do not use without my
permission.  Thanks.

Basic Moves:

Slash:     A  Weak Slash     B  Medium Slash     AB Strong Slash
Kick:      C  Weak Kick      D  Medium Kick      CD Strong Kick

-  Double tap forward on joystick to run.
-  Double tap backward on joystick to hop back.
-  Fake a retreat tapping twice back, then once forward.  The char
   will jump back, then immediately charge forward.
-  Double tap joystick diagonal down to roll forward or backward.
   Rolls go under many normal attacks and projectiles.
-  Double tap joystick straight down to lie flat, to avoid attacks.
-  Press BC for a small jump backward.  Forward BC jumps straight up.
-  Taunt your opponent when out of range with either AC or BD.
   No power or energy is affected by a taunt.
-  If dizzy, shake the joystick to regain your senses quicker.
-  Push the start button during a match to deny challengers.  Push it
   again to accept them.

=======================================================================

Weapon Notes:

-  Blocking an attack at the last possible moment will cause the
   attacker to freeze briefly.
-  When both players go for an attack at the same time, they may lock
   weapons.  A shoving match ensues, in which one or both chars may
   drop their weapons.  Pressing the slash buttons helps to break the
   lock.  Using the joystick, you can push on the opponent, or pull
   away.  It is also possible to kick the other character.
-  All broken weapons return after a five second delay.  Restored items
   will fall from the sky and stick in the ground nearby.
-  When weaponless, you are able to catch the opponent's weapon and
   throw.  Just move the joystick in a semicircle toward the attacker.
   No button press is needed.

=======================================================================

Unique Character Traits:

-  People who have the ability to bounce off walls are: Earthquake,
   Hanzo, Galford, Nakoruru, Cham Cham, and Gen-An.  When jumping
   close to a wall, push the joystick away to jump off.
-  All moves are diagrammed as if facing right and on the ground,
   unless otherwise noted.
-  If "Slash" or "Kick" is used in place of a specific
   button, assume that the strength of the move is determined
   by the strength of the button used.
-  "Power Special" moves will only work when the power meter is
   full.  Some characters may also need their weapons.  Besides doing

   a sizable chunk of damage, this move will also break your
   opponent's weapon!  Power Specials will not drain the special meter,
   unless they hit.
-  "Super Deformed" motions make your characters look like they
   belong in children's anime.  You cannot move, but you also cannot
   be thrown.  To change back, your character must be hit or do a
   special move.  This can lead to some interesting strategies...

Kuroko!

No one has a sure way of playing against computer Kuroko as of yet.

However, it is possible to play as Kuroko!  Many, many thanks to
GeeSe Howard for revealing this code.  He always has the latest

(and greatest) info for the NeoGeo.

NOTE:  FOR HOME NEO GEO MACHINES ONLY!  Does NOT work in the arcade. :(

To play as judge Kuroko, you must play a TWO player game.  On the char
selection screen, on the FIRST player side, move the joystick:

    O  |  O-  O  |  -O + A
    |  O      |  O

You only get to play one battle with him...whoever wins the fight gets
a "Game Over" screen afterward.  (So, he has no ending...)

Kuroko's weapon (flags) cannot be broken by any means.

Some of his special moves draw on other characters from other Neo Geo
games.  Thanks to Galen Komatsu and Scott Fujimoto, I've noted the
name and original character related to these moves.
