    V1.0  (7-08-00): First Version of the chart.
    V2.0  (7-09-00): Second Version of the chart and a fix of the chart at Level 73.
    V3.0  (7-10-00): Third and hopefully final Version of the chart. Fix on the chart
                     to complete it at level 84.
    
    ====Introdution====-------------------
    
    Marvel Vs Capcom 2 is the 4th in the "Vs" series of games that Capcom has released
    in the past few years. I have enjoyed everyone installment and with the release of 
    the newest version was introduced this "experiance" system of character and new
    color costume release. I wrote this because I was tired of trying to explain to
    people who were waiting around the arcade arguing on whether or not a character
    was about to get released. This will clarify everything. It's consise and proven
    time and again to be accurate. Use this as your bible when calling the characters
    to be released. I guarantee it'll look good. Print it up, take it to your arcade
    and the bickering ends. Plain and simple. But please, give credit where it is due.
    I spent WAY too much time doing the calculations for this!
    
    ====Marvel Vs Capcom 2 Character and Alternate Color Costume Release Chart====---
    
    Let me explain exactly what this means really quick. For every 400 experiance
    points something happens. Either it be a character release or a "Golden Box"
    that surrounds an existing character. This Golden Box allows you to choose two
    new colors for that character with either "assist" button. The release of
    EXACTLY what character is random to an extent. I have recieved some "Block release"
    information that can give a approximate style of character releases.

    -------====Character Block Release====-------
    
    This information was passed to me about character releases. Although
    it's random, characters are released in a "block" formation. So an
    example would be, you can't have Sentinal released as the first Marvel
    character. Here it is....
    
    The first characters that the machine starts with are....
         
         Capcom               Marvel
         ------               ------
         Akuma                Cable
         Amingo               Captain America
         Anakaris             Cyclops
         B.B. Hood            Dr.Doom
         Captain Commando     Gambit
         Guile                Hulk
         Hayato               Iceman
         Jin                  Juggernaut
         Morrigan             Magneto
         Ruby Heart           Marrow
         Ryu                  Shuma Gorath
         Sonson               Spider-Man
         Strider Hiryu        Venom
         Zangief              Wolverine
    
    Then as my chart states the order starts with a Marvel character and goes by
    block formations that are...
    
              Capcom          Marvel
              ------          ------
    Block 1:  Cammy           Omega Red
              Jill            Psylocke
              Sakura          Rogue
              Tron Bonne      Storm
    
    Block 2:  Chun-Li         Iron Man
              M.Bison         Silver Samurai
              Megaman         War Machine
              Roll            Wolverine-2
    
    Block 3:  Charlie         Blackheart
              Dan             Colossus
              Dhalsim         Sabretooth
              Ken             Spiral
    
    Block 4:  Felicia         Sentinel
              Servbot         Thanos
    
    So after every character in a block gets released, it moves on to the next block.
