    Wow, good job heheh, though there are a lot of terms i haven't heard of, but it is a great idea, perhaps us-vf jargon can finally have a definite reference.

    What's the world coming to? GLC actually contributing instead of bitching! And here I was thinking this board couldn't get any weirder =P Seriously speaking, it's a job well done, and much needed. The only addition I can think of for now is that you include the m- notation for modified moves (those required from crouching).

    I always thought "modified moves" meant that they were moves that were originally from the crouched positions but modified with extended range from "crouch dashing" (like crouch dashing with Akira and then hitting f P to get a modified single Palm). I think this is what you meant, right Myke? BTW, things are looking A-OK :p

    Good job on the faq GLC. Definitely was much needed imo as some of the VF1 and VF2 vets will come out with some abbreviations I have no idea mean... And now I do!!! Anyways, keep up the good work!

    ps. One thing I've learned from the internet... expect lots of irony and lots of surprises/images/icons/smile.gif... And often take things with a grain of salt (except most faqs of course, where maybe taking things with a grain of salt is only necessary in maybe 5% of it, depending on who wrote it, but I personally trust GLCs knowledge in VF).

    I think I could write a jargon / shorthand guide (would take a week or so). Anyone thinks I should do it?

    P.S. Chanchai, it's very nice you trust my VF knowledge :) hehe

    That'll teach me for being up 'till 4am in the morning, downloading Shen Mue movies, and trying to read and post here =P The guide already has m- notation explained. Ignore my earlier post.

    am i mistaken or should the following:
    <blockquote><hr width=100%>
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TAP turn-towards(!) punch (VF2/3 back facing, P)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TAS turn-towards(!) sweep (VF2/3 back facing, d+K)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    <hr width=100%></blockquote>actually read as TTP and TTS?

    <hr></blockquote>sheesh. mike, you vf-ethnocentric politically incorrect us-wash. j/k! ^^. would it not be more accurate to say english-vf jargon? i don't even know if GLC has ever been to the states.

    Are you mistaken? Well, yes and no. The two terms create some confusion.

    TAP: turn-around punch FROM opponent (while facing him) - CORRECTED in the guide
    TAS: turn-around sweep TO opponent (while backfacing him)

    TAP is not actually exclusive to Sarah, it's also used while talking about eg. Jerky's and Kage's moves... it was commonly used.


    P.S. I've never been to the states... which doesn't mean I'm not capable of writing a jargon FAQ! :)
