not sure if anybody else has experienced this phenom yet. and haven't seen it mentioned anywhere yet. On my way to champion in kumite, young steiner (wolf) faced many opponents, defeating all those ranked 10th dan, yet losing to a few here and there that were ranked above him, and, shockingly, dropping a match to a meager 8th dan opponent. after ranking up to champion, and going into the edit file to check for his beautiful new color choices, i noticed that "face paint" (obtained after 20 straight victories, i think) was flashing grey & white (the color of the rest of the menu items). after i switched the color of his ring attire, the face paint disappeared, although it was still selected and selectable. to regain the facepaint, i had to switch to a different color for his ring attire, and that every switch would turn it off or on. after exiting, with the face paint on, and winning a match or 3...i didn't encounter the problem anymore. does anyone know what the grey items mean? possible running into it in the japanese version. is there a concrete list of which items can and can't be lost and what are the conditions involved in losing them? i'm pretty sure i didn't lose to any other wolf characters, i tend to house them pretty soundly when we face off.
