Hi there guys. I'm a long time Tekken player & VF dabbler now deciding to get down and actually learn the ins and outs of one of Suzuki's masterpieces. I bought VF4 and am currently finding myself playing against a friend more often than not mainly because I am feeling slightly daunted by the array of single-player options available to me and my mastery of the beautiful Japanese language is unfortunately limited to martial art terms (not entirely wasted in this case then). I am therefore in need of some help from some of you guys. Specifically I would greatly appreciate assistance in 2 areas. Firstly, as detailed a description as possible of the various game modes (Arcade, Kumite, Training, AI System) regarding what can be unlocked from each, what ones can be played with a custom character etc. Secondly, how this whole custom character system works. Where do I create one, what can be done with them, where can I use them, how do I customise them etc? I think I know the answers to some of these questions already but verification would be excellent and I am in the dark for others. From reading other posts I believe some of this information has been given piecemeal or at least is assumed knowledge but I am concerned about starting things, not quite realising what I am doing because of the language barrier and ending up wasting time saving over things or not properly doing what is required I am also aware of some of the treatment of certain so called "newbies" as I have browsed these forums for a while now and was somewhat reluctant to post in the first place, but I hope somebody out there is able to provide a commited player with some helpful and useful information to help me get the most out of my imported game. Thanks in advance.
