    Hello all, I am one of, the few,the proud, the taka players, I have read all the few faqs on the internet and any other info I could find about him and how to be better with him. Anyway one day I was playing in practice mode on my sega dreamcast, I his D,F P uppercut then I thought I did his grap throw, but instead of grabing them, Taka picked my oppoent up with one are carried him a few steps foward then slammed him do the ground, it was very cool. I Dont know how I did this move and I cant find out how from any faqs, so if anyone knows how please tell me
    thanx.

    I think the move is f,f+P+G. Taka will hug the opponent, carry him for a few steps and then slam him/her to the ground.

    It's Taka's hit-throw that you saw/did: df+P, f+P+G

    It's been discussed here in the past (search for it), and it's in the movelists found on the Virtua Project.

    Hit-throws require a certain timing. In general, the throw input needs to be completed the very instant the opponent has recovered from the hit-stun. Again, search for prior discussions on the topic.

    While you're at it, check out this article by Sumeragi:

    Kris Amico's site has a few hints (about four or five) about Taka, including info about hit throws. The site also has other strategies and techniques about the game in general, as well as character specific odds and ends. It can be reached at <font color=orange>www.krisamico.com/vf3</font color=orange>.
    I don't know if you have read John Culbert's Taka faq at gamefaqs.com, but it is very informative. It has flowcharts, movelists, and move descriptions. It also has frame stats if you're into that sort of info.

    Hi Ice, figure out of the people posting in this thread, you could supply a better answer. Probably an old concern...

    How applicable is the old stuff to Taka? Given that he's changed quite a bit from OB to TB.

    In any case, I've had lots of fun messing around with Taka and so far I'm comfortable with my progress on him. He's practically been a "figure it out on your own" character for me, but it's been great. Of course I've also had help from others in terms of using Taka in tb. Oh yeah, Rich also has a corrected version of the kurai-nage article that Sumeragi posted. Should be out in the archive when that arrives.

    For me, Taka's a big-mean throwing machine with good room for some crazy combos. Big patient guy waiting to just kill someone.

    You mean the FAQ posted or the kurai-nage article?

    Well, the faqs I have seen of Taka are from the OB days, so I was referring to materials such as those when I asked about how valid they are for tb.

    As for the Kurai Nage article, I meant another version of the same information. Not really a modification of Sumeragi's post, but another post of the same thing (which I'm assuming came right off of Gamest VF3tb Mook). Here's a link to it: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.users.qwest.net/~nsaenguraiporn/vf/vf3/library/taka/VF3tb_taka_kurai_nage>Kurai Nage for Taka</A>

    And again, Taka's pretty fun to learn/versus/images/icons/smile.gif I also enjoyed watching the Kurita matches from the Beat Tribe Cup tape a lot.

    It came from the same source, so I expected any accuracy would lie in the quality of transcription.

    Sumeragi's KN article was written for TB.

    could someone explain Kurai Nage to me, what does he mean when he says that these moves can "eat"atacks?

    If I understand it correctly, it means you take a hit and get some sort of free opportunity (usually a throw).

    For the life of me, I cannot get Taka's kurai nage down except when I'm near a wall. I have no clue if I'm inputting the throws too fast or too slow. Guess it might be a range thing...
