    - In Version B, Vanessa is as light as Aoi.
    - In Version C, Vanessa's weight was increased to make her equal to Sarah.

    st = Standing
    cr = Crouching

    I've noticed some characters have weird hit detection in floats... f.ex. Sarah's DC,df+PK,u+K will miss on a normal hit from Lau but not from Kage, while f+PK,b+K,f+K+G works for Lau but not for Jacky. Of course, DC, df+PK,u+K is very reliable for Jeff, but that's an entirely different problem /versus/images/icons/wink.gif

    Myke, could you edit your post with a hard return to start a new line with the "In version B..." for Van's weight change? For some reason the end of that sentence got cut off.

    Yeah, I've been noticing this too (also in earlier versions of VF) For example, some float combos just don't work on Lion. I think when he's in the air, his legs are spread farther apart, and sometimes you whiff between them... just my theory. The df+PK, u+K on Jeff is just plain weird. It shouldn't work, and is another example pointing to weight not being the only consideration in floats. It rarely works on Wolf and Akira. Use P(G), b+K, u+K instead.

    f+PK,b+K,f+K+G works for Lau but not for Jacky

    I think this is a factor of weight. Jacky is just that little bit heavier. Jacky's and Akira's weight are big plusses for them when it comes down to assessing who are the best characters in VF4 IMO.
