Jeffry McWild Dojo
Jeffry was a stronger character than most people outside of Japan give
him credit for, but his strengths are more obvious in VF4. Jeffry has
the best all-around throwing game and he has great strikes. The biggest
difference for Jeffry is that defense is still mostly traditional; i.e.
he has no sabaki or inashi and must rely on guarding, dodging, and interrupting
for defense. Jeffry is still best for players with good yomi and a natural
instinct for knowing when Jeffry has the advantage or disadvantage.
WARNING / DISCLAIMER:
This Dojo is applicable primarily to Version B of Virtua Fighter 4, the
version in most arcades outside of Japan. The PS2 version of VF4 is Version
C, which is the version dominant in Japanese arcades. There are many subtle
differences between both versions, so in applying the information in this
Dojo to the PS2 version requires a grain of salt. Also, please keep in
mind that this Dojo was written when frame statistics were not published.
Be on the lookout for an upgraded Version C Dojo soon, hopefully. ice-9,
1/2/02 - Tweaked Moves Analysis.
12/25/01 - Combo section updated with corrections and additions.
12/24/01 - Flow Charts section finally done! Combo section totally revamped
with more comments added in. Also, with some more play time under my belt,
I thought it'd be a good idea to go through the Moves Analysis and Step
1 Strategy to weed out mistakes and make additions.
12/12/01 - Document divided into parts for better access; updates on
the Moves Analysis and Step 1 Strategy after getting some feedback.
12/01/01 - First publication of Jeffry guide, Flow Chart section missing.
A big thanks to Wenyi of Singapore for his many insights, recommendations,
and feedback. Huge thanks to Hiro of New York for translating parts of
the Red and Black Book, and for his advice on play in general. A further
thanks to all the Jeffry players at Versus City, TBzone and Virtua Project
for a few of the combos, and Virtua Project for some of the moves' names.
Also many thanks to the folks at Arcadia and Softbank for providing the
Red and Black Book respectively.
As par the course, please respect the intellectual property rights of

About the Author
My name is Jeffrey Yuwono, but my Internet alias is "ice-9."
I have not been playing VF4 long, but I am a dedicated VF3 player with
a competitive playing knowledge of all the characters. I am traditionally
known as a Kage player, which I am actually trying to shake as I see myself
more as an all-around player with a special affinity for the ninja (he
was the character I first picked, from the very first VF1). If you have
any feedback, questions, or insights into VF4 Jeffry, please do not hesitate
to e-mail me at email@example.com.
