    Re: Japanese Text Translation (sort of) ... a VF4 Mook

    Japanese Book? No need!
    Here is the Info on that Book:

    It's true that I study Japanese, but still that translation is far from my actual knowledge. So I turn to Babel-Fish from Altavista. The translation is very rought, but at least you can get the idea about what they are talking about.

    ============================================
    The Arcade VF 4 first mook
    ENTERBRAIN MOOK ARCADIA EXTRA Vol.4 Virtua Fighter 4 Red Book - ELEMENTARY PHASE -

    Covering the expectations and answering the prayers comes the a great editorial work "The Æ’oÂÂ[Æ’`Æ’Æ’Æ’tÆ’@Æ’CÆ’^ - 4 ' the editorial staff mook conversion!

    All the 13 fighters (two new characters) are included. Easy to understand there are photos and skill chart explanation. The using apture and the aerial Æ’Rƒ“ƒ{, system analysis was begun, ' the Æ’oÂÂ[Æ’`Æ’Æ’Æ’tÆ’@Æ’CÆ’^ - 4 ' charm fully loads! Acquire the difference to the rival in this mook! - VF.NET introduction. - You explain system explanation, from basic system. - It wins as a column and records the speech. - Using the page which exceeds page 100, It introduces skill to character heat. - Furthermore it is easy to utilize, It publishes skill summary the classified by character. - Also capture classified by character of course recording. - The modification point in VF 4 introduction.

    Singapore readers

    FYI: Anyone from Singapore...

    Kinokuniya does not have this book (okay...Mook) in stock, but it is in their database. I've placed an order for 3 copies (2 are for friends of mine), and they're going for S$28.95 each.

    P.S. Hi Chris /versus/images/icons/smile.gif When are you coming back to Singapore again?

    Heta_Akira,
    Er... okay, that means that this book (I *refuse* to call it "mook"! =) is just one big preview? Does it have the entire movelist with execution, contact, recovery frames and hit levels?

    Karma,
    Hi =) Probably heading to Singapore Dec 22 to Jan 7 or thereabouts... but, um... who might you be again? =P

    I'll clear this mess up once n for all

    the vf4 mook is a whopper
    208 pages thick
    full move lists ( includging secret moves)
    intro to vf.net system
    intro to vf4 system(system evaluation)
    clarification of changes from 3tb to 4
    frame rates etc
    13 characters->includes brief background..description, "tactical opinions" ( how to play em)
    etc etc

    same as every damn mook published b4.

    Re: Singapore readers

    Keep in mind that part of the title is: Elementary Phase.

    I figure it's not gonna tell us anything "advanced" (theoretically anyways) or things beyond introduction, small comentary, moveslist, and system information.... But I figure some people are like myself and enjoy collecting these things anyways. And I'm sure there is quite a bit of useful information as well. Heck, doesn't sound like it's too far from Gamest VF3 Act 1 for VF4. Definitely seems to be more information than Act 0.5.

    In this light... I do admit I am really hoping for moveslists with extended information...

    In any case, maybe someone who gets a copy of the book and understands it to some degree will give a minireview or summary of some sort.

    Just went to Kinokuniya in Japantown SF, they don't have it in stock. They were willing to special order the book for me (I gave them the ISBN#), but they said it'd take a full month... so I passed. Guess I'll look at online import bookstores...

    Ah... as long as the book as framerates, it's all good =)

    Even today, the information in VF3 Act 1 is pretty impressive to me. There are many players (myself included) that haven't even completely mastered some of the stuff discussed in Act 1...

    Re: Singapore readers

    Wish I could just get someone to translate the mooks for me.... probably would cost me a fortune.

    I still don't know much of what's written in Act 1, but I guess I should start reading Japanese again...

    Definitely looking forward to this new mook though.

    Re: Singapore readers

    Hello all,

    First time to post here. Nice meeting you all.
    I got the book. It is an elementary book. It basically consists from the basic system explanation and all the moves are listed with pictures. No damage listed. At the end, has little stradigies but not helpful at all.
    I used Lei and those pictures are hard to recognize the actual moves. However, it will give you some ideas. It has little explanations about each moves.

    I usually never ever do this and I hope noone gets into the habits of doing this (cause it just FUCKS the other person trying to get it for cheap, the more people know about it the more ppl will bid). but i'll do this just once, and I have this anyway :)

    the mook is on ebay right now..

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1179152429>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1179152429</A>

    beware of the shipping charges, this is expensive.
