Pose FAQ by MMalekzandi

+-------------------------------------------+
| Samurai Shodown 2 Character poses faq     |

+-------------------------------------------+
Why was this faq made?  Well, I like to play Ukyo, and I had a feeling that this was possible, to 
control the poses, so I played around with the joystick after the matches and found that they did 
indeed influence the poses taken by the characters.  Afterwards, I could make those girls chase after 
Ukyo every match I pleased.  Kind of sad, huh.

Besides that, this game, even though 5 years old, is still my favorite fighting game.  I've played a 
lot of other 2D fighters and 3D fighters, none of which have had the long term appeal of Samurai 
Shodown 2.  In all, this is an excellent game, and I am happy to write a faq for this game, no matter 
how trivial.

Since I have a debug mod chip in my Neogeo, I am able to switch characters between matches, and 
disarm and rearm them as I please.  If you have a debug mod I your neogeo, you can do this by going 
to the GAME DEBUG DIP option, and selecting dip 1=>6 at anytime in game play.  After this, during 
your match, pressing A+D will make your character change up, while pressing B+D will make it scroll 
down.  C+D will toggle your weapon on or off.  The way my faq is organized is with the characters 
from the first one in the program to the last.  If you try out the character swap trick I mentioned, 
you will find that the characters start with Jubei, and before him, the list of characters is NULL.  
The list ends at Charlotte, as after her, the liss is NULL again.  So of course, the list in not in 
my own order of preference. :-)

This is the self evident joystick position chart
         O Up
	 |
     O---+---O Right
 Left    |
	 O Down
These are the four directions you should keep in mind after a match is won in SS2.  The character's 
poses depend on which direction you are pointing the joystick to.

this is the score I had when I got to fight Kuroko.  His stage is named 8848 or 4484, and so I think 
that playing him is a numbers thing.  Maybe not.  I wish I could figure it out.

That's it.  The end.  Just a few thanks go out to:
PuttPutt on Rockville Pike: where I first played SS2.  Now they are run by morons who can't fix a 
machine for the life of them, nor chose a good game (Tekken Tag Tourney.  'Nuff Said)
Dan Schmidt : He traded me his NeoGeo for some good stuff.  I hold him in the highest esteem, as well 
as my memories of playing Metal Slug with him during my freshman year at Carnegie Mellon.
NeoGeo ML : very funny people.  Some of them who I didn't like before, I now find to be really funny 
and intelligent.  As long as they aren't too big headed.
SNK : for sticking with the black and gold for this long.  Almost 10 years... that's dedication.
