    I asked this in another thread, but it was kinda buried so I'll try again :)

    It was mentioned that in 4.1 you can use VF1 character models. I'm curious as to what happens when you're playing a character that wasn't _in_ VF1 (Aoi, Lion, Shun and of course Vanessa and Lei). Have they actually gone to the trouble of making VF1 style low poly models for those characters?

    But for Lion, some player in japan said he'd seen a horned Lion during the game.
    Just read a japanese thread.. don't mean to counter..

    There are bonuses/secrets in the game...I'm guessing the horned thing was one of them.

    A tip: most of the regulars here refuse to answer questions from anonymous users. Heck, most of 'em don't even read what they have to say.

    The machines I've been playing in Japan do indeed allow you to use VF1 polygon characters, but only if you use the cards. Put the card in, press start+p+k and keep them depressed until the screen changes to the round. All characters can be used like this. Cute, but won't tickle your pips for long.

    Thanks for the reply but it stil doesn't answer my question!

    So I'm playing Lion -- what does a VF1 version of Lion look like? He wasn't _in_ VF1!


    I guess I'll wait till I play the game... when was it coming out in LA again?

    Here is my interpretation of this situation:

    * Everyone from VF1 gets VF1-treatment if this 'cheat' is used;
    * Lion, Shun, etc. remain unchanged.

    people people people!!! have a little imagination /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    this is whats its going to happen....

    that code will get all the characters in flat shaded form, meaning no texture mapping, just like vf1 was, they are NOT going to look like the vf1 characters did , the only thing in common they will have is that they will be flat shaded polys.

    their poly count might decrease (to make them look more blocky) or increase .

    Well that makes some sense, although flat shaded VF4 character are not going to look like VF1 characters without a _huge_ poly count reduction (which can be done automatically, it's true) =]

    But you're probably right... it's more VF1 "style" than actual VF1 models.

    Im a Japanese living in Tokyo as I wrote in other thread.

    There IS VF1 character model even for all the new chars.
    Not only those chars are non-texture-mapped and flat shaded, but also number of polygons are reduced.
    So they really look like VF1.

    is this the coolest arcade trick ever or what! /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Can you clarify further? Do the character models for the original 8 characters look like they do in vf1? As in the pic below? For example, is the character model for Akira in vf4 exactly how it is in vf1, or does it resemble vf4 character model but just flat shaded and a few less polys?


    Thanks in advance!

    I played against VF1 Lion and Pai today. Pai was exactly
    the same as VF1 char and also Lion.. what??? there was
    no Lion in VF1 but Lion looked like the chars in VF1.
    I found it was really annoying... We dont need this option!

    Are there any pictures of this trick being used on the web anywhere? This is something I'd love to see some screenshots of.

    Adam, they look just like this. They're the VF1 models AFAIK.

    And ALL characters have this, so they have created special VF1 models for all the newer characters. The VF2 guys have VF2 costumes with VF1 builds. Vanessa and Lei Fei also have this. You can see these models simply by beating the CPU, where it shows all your replays with the VF1 models fighting.

    Just sort of curious.... but I assume lighting effects affect the VF1 character models?
