Just a few general strategies for when you get into higher ranks. hope they help -- AVOID using Jacky's big combos like PP-->PPK. The computer almost NEVER gets hit by the whole combo and then you are left exposed. --Instead USE high damage small combos like <--PP and -->PK. These are canned combos so if the first strike hits, the following strikes are guaranteed to hit. --Use moves that SET UP for high damage possibilities. -->K is perfect for this because it will float your opponents in the air. Follow this up with a combo. I use PP-->K because its fast and can hit the heavier characters like Jeff or Wolf. You also use a high damage variant like PP-->PK, but its only 9 dmg points more and doesnt work on the heavies. --LEARN to Evade Attack and Quick Rise / Tech Roll properly, these are critical. --Learn which THROWS are good for which situation. The clothesline throw (--> --> P+G), is good on computers because i know a special little trick for that. The --> <-- P+G throw is also useful because it is very quick to do when you are dashing into an enemy, it is one of Jacky's most powerful throws and it switches your position with the enemy. Normal P+G throw is a very weak throw by itself BUT most of the time you can follow it up with a stomp. Jacky's Sadistic Hanging Knee throw df, df P+G is his most powerful standing throw, but it is kind of hard to pull off, and the enemy can recover from it using a Quick Rise / Tech Roll, reducing its damage potential. --P+K, P, K is my best friend, and it should be yours too. Use this whenever you know that the enemy is open. As Mr. T would say "It hurts helluva lot". --STUDY your opponents in training mode and recognize what moves will leave them in guaranteed throw position, guaranteed strike attacks etc. --Shuffle Step is a very useful technique that you should become familiar with. Against human opponents, the Shuffle Kick Iageri can really screw with their mind. Um, Er, I cant think of anymore right now. Hope this post helps.
