...naturally I get it when I'm not anywhere near the PC that houses my FTP server, but have a look there later on anyway /versus/images/icons/wink.gif I may also clean the movie up with tmpgenc or something, it's REALLY dark. Edit: cleaned up. It helps a lot to be able to see things. New junk: Backgrounds get the pallette swap treatment. Akira: I think I'm seeing bamboo in the BG through the windows, like VF3. Maybe wrong. The streaming-sunlight effect looks stronger than the daylight seen in the current version. Kage: Is at night. Should be nice. Jacky: The tiny patch of sky visible here looks like it has clouds, like overcast late day. Helicopters and overall feel seems the same. Sarah: Can't spot anything new. Wolf: Where the overall theme color of the stage was blue/green before, it is now light brown. Jeff: Sunset, pretty yellowish/orange clouds in the BG. Pai: Not shown. Lau: Rainy, with a nice grey cloud background and a grey haze over everything. Hard to say if it's actually RAINING or not during the fight, but I suspect it is. Shun: No immediately noticeable difference. Too daaaark. Lion: Hard to see with all the camera whirling, but I think everything outside the ring is different. I'm seeing a tall square gothic castle with towers on each corner, a tree with no leaves, and some snowy hills with evergreens. Aoi: Dunno. Lei Fei: It's now midday and sunny. Rather than being too yellow, it's a generic blue sky. It seems like these stages should have been reversed... the blue sky as the 'normal' VF4 stage and the yellow tinted version as the Evo. Vanessa: Hardly shown. I can see the sky is pale and cloudy, not utterly dark. New intro CG - Lion does eddie gordo-like handstand twirls. Akira does the usual elbow posing stuff. Shun di, I kid you not, breakdances with lots of leg flares or whatever they're called. Kage does hoppy crescents and is generally whirly. Sarah does a crescent kick and a bit of FL stuff, including the FL reversal, then adopts a JKD fighting stance. New moves! Akira: I hate to see it, but I think I'm seeing a canned sgpm --> DE combo. Definitely some sort of 2 hitter ending in DE. We also have a new 2 hitter shown after a shrm - A standing knee (looks just like the second hit of the AS3) followed by an elbow drop (looks like jeff's b+P). The elbow drop slams during the float. Also, the knee is shown hitting independently, and it floats. Another new attack: Akira sort of ducks in close and delivers a body blow, then quickly skips back. This is shown baiting lei fei into a reaction and then akira crouch dashes into that sgpm-DE combo. Think of the second hit of akira's PP, but a rushing attack. Jacky: some sort of canned punch/elbow combo, it reminds me of d/f+PPP but the final hit is an elbow strike that causes the same flipover animation. Pounce. Jacky is also shown in the midst of the 'new moves showcase' doing a very generic knee, P, shot knee, kickflip combo. Aoi: LOL! bodycheck reversal! She sort of looks like she's blocking the bodycheck, then she plants a quick knee in his back and proceeds to flip him over her shoulder, same animation as the D/F+P hit-throw. It's hard to see, but I swear I also see akira's b,f+PK getting reversed. Same over-the-shoulder flip animation. Then we have a reversal of akira's QCB+P. You'll never guess what the animation is. It looks like aoi has been made capable of reversing any attack, including 2-handers. Lei: is shown doing something that looks a little like kage's ..??? .. the move where he steps forward and does a horizontal chop, it pushes you back far if it hits. It also looks a lot like ling in tekken 3 doing b+1 (I think). He sort of holds his hand out for a half second in a deflection pose. Wolf: Face down, head towards pickup is shown going smoothly into backdrop (his back throw). The damage is maybe 30 points. This is after a f,d+K mc. I guess a nice alternative to pouncing. Pai: A forward flip attack with both legs that looks similar to f+K+G (maybe a new animation for the old move?) ... she is left backturned. From the backturned position she does the same attack twice, it doesn't turn her towards. It's a sort of half turning slap to the belly. Looks a little like Tk3 ling's d/f+1. Also seen after this move is a hooking TT kick that's very similar to ling's back turned 4, and also scrapes the opponent off the floor in a situation where the flip attack knocked down. Also of note is pai interrupts lei fei's arrow punch with something that looks like u/b+K, but has a different, quicker animation. Sort of a grounded version of Kage's d/f+K+G. Lau: A violent uppercut, followed by his b+P elbow drop. Sarah: a kick to the shin with one foot followed by a typical FL n+K. Maybe a new way to get into stance quickly. Nothing else in the way of new moves to report. Sadly for vanessa players, she's shown in the midst of all this new stuff doing a generic lightning elbow -->PPK combo. New modes: Quest and 'scramble'. Quest looks like you're presented with a specific challenge for beating your opponent, and as a reward, you get a treasure chest. It's almost like the same system you use to acquire the weird treasures now, except the game tells you the condition prior to the match, and the condition is shown at the bottom left or right corner during the bout. Having no japanese, all I can see in one mission is: KO 2(something).. probably win two rounds? Another has "50" in it. Maybe something about 50 pts of damage, or guarding/hitting 50 times successfully. Scramble is less clear. You get a "title match" screen before the fight, like you would if you were on the verge of promotion/demotion. Then on the bottom right corner of the screen is a bunch of text during the match. After successfully completing the mission, there's more title match kanji with a picture of a glowing treasure chest and the words "player 2". So I guess pl.2 won an item, yaaay! The possible Sad News: There's a section of the demo that says "new challengers" and during this you see blurred fighting in the background while "Challenger Comes" is in the foreground. To make matters worse the blurred BG is darkened. I remember saying a while ago "ahhh they'll never make new characters." Well they made new characters, but it looks like my suspicions about recycling may have been correct. The hooded character does aoi's 3/4 circle throw.. ending with a stomp on the face. I also see one of shun's b,f+P strikes followed by lei fei's knee, then lei fei's low kick. I see a new-ish generic shoulder slam throw. Then we have the kickboxer holding wolf and doing repeated knees to the groin. His ground attack is jacky's soccer kick. He does jacky's b,f+K+G without the wiggle animation at the end. In his alternate outfit, bare skin + boxer shorts, he does kage's helix (or maybe it's vanessa's lightning elbow) into a canned kick that looks like kage's jumonji K. In short, I can't see anything new. I hope that changes.
