                 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.
