I. Revision History
-------------------

Ver 1.0: Initial Release. It's gonna be short and sweet
Ver 2.0: I've gotten a few VERY helpful emails and I'm gonna add that stuff 
(combos), plus fix up some dumb errors I made. Heh.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




II. Personal Intro
------------------

 I've been a fan of the VS series by Capcom for quite a while now, but I've 
never been very good at them. I've practiced and I think I've gotten a little 
better. So, now I've decided to write a little faq on my newest favorite 
character in the VS series, Jill Valentine.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



III. Character Intro
--------------------

 Jill has been around the world of Capcom for quite a while now, but only in a 
3D form. She was one half of the starring role in the original Resident Evil. 
She was not in RE2, but when Resident Evil 3 came out, she was back to being the 
star, but she didn't have to share the spotlight with Chris this time. She was 
all alone. Too bad noone gave her the lockpick because she is the 'Master of 
Unlocking' (RE1 joke...sorry ^_^)
 Now, she's gotten a 2D incarnation. She's got some cool moves. She's got the 
magic series combos and she's got zombies. Not just human type zombies...but dog 
zombies and crows and everyone's favorite impossible final boss, Tyrant!
 In this game, she has on her S.T.A.R.S. uniform, complete with her beret, but 
uses her gun very little. Oh well. She's VERY fast and she's a little smaller 
than the average MVC2 character (but not quite as small as the Kobun).
 She talks alot and after 5 minutes of playing, you'll know she's a member of 
S.T.A.R.S. because she says it ALOT. Hehe. 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VI. Conventions
---------------

 I'm going to stray from the norm of Street Fighter and the other VS games for 
my button conventions. I play alot of Tekken and I like the numbering system for 
the buttons instead of Short, Strong, Fierce cuz I can never remember what 
button is what that way. Heh. Maybe I just have a brain like cieve.
 As everyone knows, MVC2 has a new button configuration. I am going to put the 
official names of the buttons and next to them in parenthesis, I'm going to put 
the number that I'll refer to them by. Got it? Good. Here goes (pretend the 0's 
are the buttons :) )

     0                     0                 0
 Jab Punch (1)       Fierce Punch (3)    Assist 1 (5)
     0                     0                 0
 Short Kick (2)     Roundhouse Kick (4)  Assist 2 (6)


 I think labeling the buttons as numbers is easier. I hope you do too. Please 
continue reading :)

 The original name will be the first one given and the name as interpreted by me 
will be the one in parenthesis. Hehe.


REGULAR ATTACKS!
----------------
 
 *- Kinsetsu Sentou A 
 - (Rush'N Attack)

 -- QCF + 1

 -- QCF + 3 (Hold 2 to charge. I've gotten up to 22 hits with it, but heard you 
can go up to 36 hits if you hold long enough)

and then shoot her Magnum 3 times at them. Yay!

 
 *- Kinkyu Kaihi A
 - (Crazy Zombie Rush A)

 -- QCB + 2

 --- A regular zombie comes shambling across the screen. If it hits the 
opponent, it'll hold them and do damage. Dash in and combo away! Also, if you 
hit the zombie after it walks by you, it'll fall over and if the opponent gets 
too close, it'll grab their feet and hold on so you get a combo opportunity!

 
 *- Kinkyu Kaihi B

doesn't grab the opponent. Flame on! Hehe!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VI. Combos and Such!
--------------------

 I have to admit that I haven't really experimented ALOT with Jill's Combos, so 
bear with me. I'll put more as I play more!

 Ok! First, I'll describe the combos she can use.


 *- On the ground, she uses a 'Light to Strong Combo' series. 
 
 --- Basically, this means she can string together ANY 3 hits on the ground that 
go from light to medium to hard. 

 --- Here are examples
 - 1 -> 1 -> 3 (Light punch, med. punch, hard punch)
 - 2 -> 1 -> 3 (Light kick, med. punch, hard punch)
 - 2 -> 2 -> 4 (Light kick, med. kick, hard kick)


 *- In the air, she can use the 'Zig Zag Combo' series.

 --- Basically, this means that she can go from light punch (1) to hard kick (4) 
in ANY order as long as you don't go back. 

 --- Here is an example:
 - 1 -> 2 -> 2 -> 4

 --- Of course, the most popular is:
 - 1 -> 2 -> 1 -> 2 -> Combo Finisher
 - That's the most popular because it does a full 4 hits in the air AND you can 
end it one of four ways. 
   *- Jill's combo finishers are the following:
   - 3 (Hard Punch)
   - 4 (Hard Kick)
   - QCF + 1 or 3 (Rush'N Attack)
   - QCF + PP (Crazy Flaming Rush'N Attack)
    - Not only is this the most damaging, but you get style points for finishing 
with a super and a big part of any fighting game is style points ^_^


 *- So, without further ado, here are some serious combos. :)

 -- 1 -> 2 -> C4 -> QCF + 1 -> QCF + PP

 -- JI1 -> 1 -> 1 -> C3 (Launcher) -> SJ -> 1 -> 2 -> 1 -> 2 -> QCF + PP 

 -- JI1 -> JI2 -> 1 -> 2 -> C4 -> OTG with a C2 -> C3 -> 1 -> 2 -> 1 -> 2 -> QCF 
+ 1 -> QCF + PP

 -- Heh. It's especially nice to start that while you have a flaming zombie 
munching on your opponent. ^_^

 -- All of the above 'serious' combos can be changed up. You can substitute just 
about anything for any of the 1s or 2s. For example, instead of a JI1 -> JI2, 
you can just do JI1 -> JI1. It's that simple. Along the same lines, any of the 
hits after you hit the ground can be crouching or standing except the ones that 
are specifically crouching attacks. I hope that makes sense :) What I'm trying 
to say is that you should mix it up, do your own thing and add some style cuz 
fighting games are all about style, right?

 -- One last thing about these combos. If you pull them off and you have an 
extra second while your opponent is reeling, throw out a taunt. It's fun. YES!! 


 *- Bonus Super Combo Type Thing!

 -- Start the 'Oh Crap, it's Tyrant!' super (QCB + KK) and as Tyrant is knocking 
your opponent around, do the 'Rocket Launcher' super (QCF + KK) and after Tyrant 
is done, Jill will hop up and fire one shot at Tyrant. When it hits, Tyrant will 
explode and your opponent will land on the explosion and take a bit more damage. 
The whole combo does just about HALF DAMAGE! Plus, if you wanna show off, throw 
in a taunt at the end. Hehe, that'll really make your opponent mad. I love 
taunts!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


VII. Wrap up!
-------------

 Well, that's about if for my FAQ. I hope you like it and that it's not too 
confusing. I think it might be. If you have suggestions, please feel free to 
email me at legend@ici.net. I like getting email!
 Oh yeah, this is for either version of the game (DC or Arcade). I'm sure they 
both play the same!
 If you find any spelling errors, please let me know...I don't have a spell 
checker. This is a raw text doc, baby! ^_^

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IX. End and all that Good Stuff!
--------------------------------

 Well, that's it. I don't know what else to say. Oh yeah, blah, blah, don't use 
for faq for making money or anything like that. I wrote it. I want credit. 
That's it. It's not too much to ask.
 Thanks for reading this! I hope you like it! I'm thinking about doing the same 
for some other characters (maybe SonSon and Tron Bonne). So, if I get some 
encouragement, I'll probably do it...or if I just get bored...I'll probably do 
it. ^_^
 Thanks again for reading! 

 Email me if you want! legend@ici.net
