    _/                             Introduction                               _/

    Hello all, and welcome to the Killer Instinct FAQ.
    
    The game is a Mortal Kombat/Virtual Fighter/Street Fighter type game with
    graphics that blow 'em all away.
    
    There are  2 separate FAQ's.  This will eliminate me from having
    to place symbols for moves that worked on the old one and do not
    work on the new one.  The current way to tell if you have the test
    version or the release version of KI is if the guy on fire's name is
    Meltdown then you have a test version.  If his name is Cinder, then you
    have the newer release version.
    
    If anyone has the test version of the game let me know I have a few things
    I would like to try out on that version. Almost all machines shipped are
    version 1.4 and are being upgraded to 1.5(or 2.3) soon.
    I will try to keep the FAQ version equal to the machine (chip) version
    but I have found out that 5.0 may have been another test version.  I will
    work on this!   Version 1.4 is the latest release version with drive version
    1.0.  Most games out now have 1.4 chips and 1.0 drives. I am not going back
    on version numbers for the FAQ.
    See the misc section for release date stuff!
    
    _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/

    _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/
    
    Well as always there is way too much new to list.  Lots of moves confirmed,
    new moves, and many changed.
    
    It has been brought to my attention that the combos are too hard to read,
    I am working on a better way, but for now this will have to do.
    
    There is another chip being made...I am calling it version 1.5 but not sure
    exactly what version it is. It may be 2.3. Hopefully Midway will go with
    
    their standard numbering.
    
    There are many NEW ideas and moves here not talked about anywhere else!
    
    Spinal fans... check his section for a infinite powerup move!
    This is probably the biggest news in this versions of the FAQ. Not Seen
    ANYWHERE ELSE!
    
    Play as Eyedol! Includes many of the moves!
    
    Thought by some to be glitches, Air Combos are slowly being discovered. I
    will add them as I find them. Some examples are Orchids Tiger Morph and
    Jago's Heel Kick. Both can be done in the air. See each character's section
    and the Air Combo Section.
    
    Yes I know there are SEVERAL other FAQ's out there. The style's are a
    little different (more like SF descriptions) and without all the
    descriptions ect. I do not plan on having a FAQ competition so do NOT send
    me stuff like 'they said this, and you did this' stuff. It's a free world.
    I will still accept complements and FRIENDLY criticism.
    (Don't Panic!)
    
    A WWW (World-Wide_web) page has been created for the FAQ. Currently
    it is just the FAQ, with a easy point and click interface. Hopefully
    soon there will be pictures and other stuff. Thanks to Christopher
    King! Nice Job! The address is:
    
    http://www2.ncsu.edu/unity/lockers/users/c/chking/KI/
    so check it out!
    
    My goal for 5.5 is to have Many of the new 1.5 chip moves such as the FAKE
    overhead slams, as well as what all the overhead slams do. Another goal is
    descriptions and moves for all 3 hit air combos and a ton of new combos
    for everyone.
    
    Hey! A one page FAQ (actually about 1 and a half) is also out.  It has
    all the moves from the FAQ compressed without all the descriptions.
    This will make it easier to bring it along with to your favorite spot!
    Thanks to The Immortal Spam (Great Job!) There is another good one, but I
    believe this one is going to be the OFFICIAL 1-page FAQ.
    
    The 'TEST' version of the FAQ moves seemed to get into EGM's January
    issue. (Electronic Gaming Monthly) They did NOT ask for permission and
    gave no credit to the FAQ. About 50% of the moves listed in there
    are wrong, and it was easy to tell it was from the FAQ. (same mistakes
    in the same places i.e. HCT, HCF) Basically poor editing made it
    easy to spot the fact they copied.
    
    Other Magazine news. I have heard that the FAQ will be making it AGAIN into
    EGM, whether or not the FAQ will get credit is another story. Also the FAQ
    IS going to be in the March issue or GamePro Magazine, and they did ask for
    permition. Thanks guys!
    This has to be the most Published FAQ around! It's also on a ASCII ART site
    for my KI logo (Which was made by hand) and a new one coming soon!
    Because of the requests and so many other FAQ's popping up, the moves
    are in two formats. (Trying to please more people). The moves are now
    listed as both F,D,B,6 and HCB,6 (where available.) Also many moves
    require that you stop at DB (Down and back on a angle).
    As long as were are on the subject some moves require you to hold the
    joystick forward such as Fulgore's 3 electric bolts. It you do not hold
    the stick forward you will only get one. (Many people have written saying
    they can't get three....this is why)
    
    
    The machine is popping up everywhere which means I can finally start playing
    again!  It has been a while since I have played since Midway has had me
    banned from a local place.  Basically thank you everyone one this list!
    Without you, this FAQ would have stopped dead like they wanted.  I am not
    after Midway or anything (they have made some great games) they have just
    adopted the attitude that FAQ's are killing the Arcade.  From all of your
    responses I like to think this FAQ is helping.  Many have written saying
    they would not be playing KI if it wasn't for this FAQ because SF players
    had an advantage and were destroying them at the game, so it was not fun
    to even try. I hope this FAQ is serving its purpose by doing more
    good than harm!

    **************
    * First Look *
    **************
    
    The characters are rendered in some sort of 3D package (on SGI or something)
    and have the similar look to DKC style graphics. The games is NOT rendered
    in real time (like VF) but use a style along the lines of MK. (Pre-
    recorded graphics).
    
    If nobody is playing (which is very unlikely) the games cycles screens
    about Nintendo, and this being the Ultra 64 coming to your home soon. Also
    each character gets a into-animation showing them somewhere then the
    screen shrinks to show their story and Stats. These animations are VERY
    well done, and should be seen.
    
    *****************
    * On the Inside *
    *****************
    
    The usual stuff with the some Ultra 64 technology, and a hard drive for the
    graphics. Under the test screens there are the options for making the
    game very easy,easy,medium,hard,extreamly hard. (Most arcades use
    medium). There is a options to see the % of win's and stuff. Most
    of the % are about even for games played and wins. There IS a stat.
    section for Eyedol in the 2 player list, and Eyedol vs the computer.
    And we now know why it's there!
    More to come as I find out.
    
    **********
    * Rounds *
    **********
    
    Each player starts with 2 bars of energy to use for the entire game.
    (Think of it as one LARGE bar but only half is shown on screen at a time.)
    Once the first bar is gone, the player falls, gets up and starts to use the
    second bar of energy.  A voice will say ROUND 2 or Killer Instinct!
    The player who wins the first round gets to keep their remaining
    energy plus still has the second bar to use.  This makes it more
    fair to the person who wins the first round.  So, if you weren't paying
    attention, and lost big time the first round... chances are very slim for a
    come-back!
    
    
    Last Breath: This allows you one last chance for life.  You get enough
    energy to take one more hit!  I have won matches using this, and really
    upset some people!  After the voice says 'No Mercy' start rotating your
    stick and mashing buttons, your guy will get back up and start to fight
    again!  You MUST do this before the other person start's doing the No Mercy!
    If you are the winning person and do not want your opponent to come back
    
    with his 'Last Breath' you must just hit them again, and forget about the
    No Mercy! If you comeback you will get a FLASHING bar. (Power Up)
    
    ************
    * Power UP *
    ************
    
    The Power up bar is the white flashing vertical bar in your health bar.
    This means you will be able to do many more devastating moves such as
    the Shadow moves and Triple projectiles. Most times the bar is powered
    up by doing a combo breaker. Sabrewulf can get it by doing his Energy Howl,
    and Spinal can get it by obtaining skulls. If the bar is NOT flashing, then
    you are not powered up.
    
    **********
    * Combos *
    **********
    
    A combo is a consecutive series of hits (punches/kicks/specialty moves)
    without your opponent being able to retaliate.  These are not all confirmed
    and don't work all the time.  Each character's combos are discussed in
    detail in their section of the FAQ.  They've given each combo a "name"
    and when you complete one the game will flash it up on the screen (similar
    to PR) and speak it, like "Hyper Combo"!  The game is basically a "Combo"
    game. The whole object is to get massive combo moves.  I know I am missing
    a bunch of combo moves for people.  I am going to have to re-organize this
    part because if I put them all in this thing would be huge!  Maybe a
    separate FAQ on combos?
    The "names" are as follows: (some might have changed!)
    
          3 Hits: Triple Combo
          4 Hits: Super Combo
          5 Hits: Hyper Combo
          6 Hits: Brutal Combo
          7 Hits: Master Combo
          8 Hits: Awesome Combo
          9 Hits: Blaster Combo
         10 Hits: Monster Combo
         11 Hits: King Combo
         12 or more Hits: Killer Combo
         Then ULTRA  combos are special combos at the end of the match.
    
    Ending with a ULTIMATE combo will end with a No Mercy. (I will add these
    as I get them) Here is some news! There IS a Ultimate combo for EACH
    No Mercy, not just 1!
    
    FREE Seconds: There are ways to get a 'free' second hit for combos.
    The buttons are joined together. (I will probably regret telling this
    because I already get my butt kicked enough by combos!)  The buttons joined
    are 1 and 4, 2 and 6, 3 and 5.  In other words, if I jump at a person and
    press 2, then after hitting I press 6, it will do a total of 3 (maybe more)
    moves.  So the last move is a free-bee.  The idea to combos are to see what
    moves go together, or flow together.  If you are using Jago, and have his
    sword out, you might as well use it a few times before putting it away
    right? These only work on a jump in attack.
    
    Each player also has a combo that will make their opponent dizzy. (opponent
    hunches over like at end of a match) This will allow you to do another
    big combo without your opponent being able to block it. These are
    in each section in ().
    ** I have been told that Dizzy's will NOT be in the next chip release (1.5)
    or are atleast harder to do.
    
    Each character's section includes a "COMBO MOVES:" section. These tell
    you how many hits you will get with is after doing a special move.
    For example.
    Spinal: After doing a charge then a B,3 Will make it a 3 hit move.
    These will hopefully help in the construction of combos.
    
    
    Each Character will now have a Combo Ender section. These are moves done
    towards the end of combos that usually throw your opponent up into the air,
    allowing you to do a Air Juggle afterwards. Knowing these will help with
    creating your OWN combos and not just using the ones in the FAQ's.
    
    Each player also has a combo breaker.  These are described in each
    character's section.  Basically it stops your opponent from finishing a big
    combo.
    
    * Hint: Know these well, your going to need them!
    
    *New Combo Breaker Theory. This was provided by Solo and friends. (thanks
    guys)
    
    Below is a chart on what buttons to try and use.
    Opponent Used      You  Use
            1               3 or 6
            2               1 or 4
            3               2 or 5
            4               3 or 6
            5               1 or 4
            6               2 or 5
    In short this is what the chart tells you; If you are being comboed by any
    quick attack, break it with fierce. If you are being comboed with any medium
    then break it with quick, and if your being comboed with any fierce, then
    break it with medium.  With this method (and some good luck) you can break
    combos on the first hit! This is why I said before that the Combo Breaker
    code allows you to break combos with ANY button. If you are not great with
    combos, and don't know what your opponent usually starts the combo with then
    stick to the Usual breakers, but if your brave, give this a try.  I am NOT
    making any promises, just giving some incite!
    
    ***************
    * Speed Combos *
    ***************
    This description is in it's own description because it's new after that it
    will be up in the combo section with the rest of the stuff people just skip
    over. I do not know to many of these but they are being worked on. Speed
    combos are combos that are done by holding buttons or different joystick
    movements to Speed up the combos. Here is an example:
    Regular Jago Combo:f,d,db 6,4,f,d,db5 and pay attention to how slow it goes.
    Speed Jago Combo: (H)6(H)5,f,d,db(R)6,4,f,d,db(R)5
    It's impressive if it works and very hard to break. It's going to take a lot of
     practice to get
    these to work, so be patient!
    
    ******************
    * Knockdown Attack *
    ******************
    These are ways of fighting back after being knocked down. For example, if
    you are playing orchid, you get comboed against and knocked down, charging
    back, then forward +6 when getting up will do her forward cartwheel. These
    moves are almost un-blockable, but most opponents have backed-up before you
    get up anyway.
    
    ***************************
    * Reverse Control Move (RCM) *
    ***************************
    
    These are moves that will surprise your opponent like your walking forwards
    then all of a sudden you in their face pounding them. These will be written
    as RCM's.
    
    **************
    * Air Juggle *
    **************
    
    Basically they are a special move done after you have knocked your
    opponent into the air, hitting them on the way down. After a player gets
    a Combo Breaker, most Projectile Attacks will throw 3 projectiles.
    
    **************
    * Air Combos *
    **************
    
    These Air Combos are moves done after kicking your opponent while
    in the air. Each characters Air Combo's will be listed in their own section.
    There are a few way's to do them, but basically there are two standard
    
    moves. Both require that you jump in and kick your opponent first. Finally
    people are starting to find 2 kinds of Air combos! Orchid can do her
    Spinning attack in the air also!
    People are starting to do 3 hit combos in the air.
    
    **********************
    * Ultimate Victories *
    **********************
    
    If you win without completely losing your first bar of energy it is
    considered an "Ultimate Victory" and the character gets a close up
    animation! These animations are described in each character's section of
    the FAQ.
    
    **************
    * NO MERCYS  *
    **************
    More commonly known as fatalities......
    When you defeat your opponent the computer yells "NO MERCY" and that is
    your chance to kill him. (ie Finish HIM! from MK)  These "No Mercy's"
    are also described in each character's section of the FAQ.
    In version 1.4 'No Mercy' has been changed to Danger!  I am assuming
    this is a bug, because it's a little too late to be telling the person
    danger, when they're dead! They should go back to the old version where
    it said 'Danger' when the red bar flashed, and 'No Mercy!' when your
    leaning over.
    
    *****************
    * HUMILIATION'S *
    *****************
    
    These are performed like No Mercys.  After the computer yells No Mercy,
    then doing one of these will make your opponent be humiliated!  These are
    also shown in each character's section.  Remember You can only do a
    Humiliation if you did NOT lose a bar of energy!
    
    ****************
    * Shadow Moves *
    ****************
    
    These can be done when the Power up bar is flashing.  If you do a special
    move, then a silver outline follows your every move.
    (more to come as I find them)
    
    *Shadow Combos are also being discovered. Check each section for different
    ones! Most require that you hold multiple buttons, these are VERY tough,
    and similar to speed combos!
    
    **********
    * STAGES *
    **********
    
    Each game is played on a different stage.  Each with its own background
    and playing area!  You can now PICK what level and music you want to
    play on in 2 player mode.  After scrolling to your player, press the
    joystick down with a button.  Each button is a different screen.  The
    first person to pick their character, picks the stage.  The second
    person to pick, picks the music (by the same method of selection).
    I do not know all the stage choices yet but if I do, it is posted with
    it's stage and what button to press.  Each character now has a stage
    associated with them, and there are some stages you will only get in two
    player mode.  If you do not select music, the appropriate music for that
    stage will be played.  In any case, the music described in the stages is the
    appropriate music, but not necessarily the music you hear.  I do not have
    all the music descriptions yet, nor do I have a full description of all
    the backgrounds. (soon, really!) The Joystick/button selection is in ().
    As a added note, most of the stairs are located on the left hand side,
    giving player one a slight disadvantage.
    The current stages are as follows...
    
    - Canyon (D,1)
    
    In this stage you are fighting on a rope/log bridge with a huge rock
    canyon in the background.  An interesting effect is that the bridge kind of
    
    bounces when you jump on it. The setting sun has the sky turned blazing red
    and the clouds are streaming towards you like mad. The music for this
    stage has sort of an Native American sound to it.
    The main thing to remember on this stage is to avoid being trapped on
    either end of the bridge since this puts you higher than your opponent and
    at a serious fighting disadvantage! This stage is associated with Chief
    Thunder.
    
    - City Rooftop in Chicago  (U,5)
    
    This stage has you on the rooftop of a skyscraper in a futuristic city at
    night.  In the background there are various other buildings with flashing
    red beacons.  There are also two billboards, one showing an animated
    Ultra 64 logo and the other showing a realtime scaled down version of your
    current fight!  There is no high or low ground on this stage, but being
    trapped in a corner can be pretty damaging. The roofs look a lot
    like the ring's used in Virtual Fighter and you CAN knock your opponent off
    the roof, you need to do a charge at them usually in the middle of a combo.
    You will usually fall onto the pink car from the Chicago street stage!
    This stage is associated with Orchid.
    
    - Castle Rooftop (U,4)
    
    Similar to the City Rooftop scene but in this one you are set in more of a
    medieval time.  Sort of a Transylvania feel to it, with bats flying around
    and lightning flashing....even has a full moon!  Again, no high or low
    ground but watch those corners. And again, you can be knocked off the
    roof when charged. This is Spinal's Stage. I believe you land in the
    lava, but I may be wrong.
    
    - Boxing Gym (???)
    
    This one has you in a boxing workout gym with a boxing ring in the
    background and large punching bags.  This is one of the cooler
    scenes cause as you and your opponent move back and forth the perspective of
    the scene changes and you can really see the 3-D effect with the punching
    bags and all. Of course this is T.J. Combo's stage.
    
    - Chicago Alleyway (D,4)
    
    Wow we're out on the streets, fighting amongst the broken down cars and
    graffiti covered buildings!  This scene is also on of the better ones for
    seeing the 3-D effect of the perspective changes, particularly in the cars
    in the background.  The music here has lots of police sirens going in it.
    Some of the graffiti is "Chicago Lives!","MT"(turmell?),"Kev Boyle's
    Vehicle Surgery"???. (Don't think is's anyones home)
    
    - Chateau (D,5)
    
    Here you are fighting in a nice cozy little room with a fire going in the
    fireplace and classic paintings hanging on the walls.  Rich maroon velvet
    drapes and gold chandeliers add to the feel of the room.  There is a large
    wooden door to the far right and stairs leading upwards to the left.
    Don't get forced onto the stairs, this puts you on higher ground and
    therefore at a disadvantage. This is Sabrewulf's hangout.
    
    - Mountain Shrine (U,3)
    
    This stage looks like you were transported to Alaska. There is snow
    all around, with a large concrete looking statue of two people (back
    to back) behind you. One of them looks like Orchid. The fighting area
    is a long narrow area, with a small bridge in the middle. The area with
    the statue looks like there should be some way to fight up there, and
    
    to anyone at Midway, it would of been cool to be able to walk(fight) all
    the way around the statue instead of about one half.(just a thought)
    
    - Mountain Temple (U,1)
    
    This stage is a lot like the above Mountain Shrine, except there is now
    a temple with the roof being held up by the two sculptures. Maybe a before
    and after a nuclear bomb thing here. It makes the other stage look like
    the ruins of this stage. This is Glacious' stage.
    
    - Industrial Warehouse (D,6)
    
    This stage place's you on a metal (grated) catwalk, high above in a
    ole Warehouse. On the side of the catwalk reads 'TDJ Stamper Industries'
    The fighting area is much shorter then normal, and the characters seem
    very close. This is where Fulgore hangs out.
    
    - Warehouse Basement (D,3)
    
    Probably not really the basement, but similar in looks, with a small
    bridge over lava. I haven't seen anyone fall in yet but I have heard
    that it is possible. There are flying bats all over. The bridge
    does bounce a little bit, and the camera really pans in and out a lot!
    This is one of Eydol's stage's. You can knock him into the lava with a
    uppercut.
    
    - Eydol's Lair ( ??? )
    
    This is the other place that you can fight Eyedol at. It is hard to
    explain, but you fight real close to the screen (Feet are at the bottom
    of the screen) and looks like a old auditorium (Trashed) with empty
    seats ect.
    
    - Desert Roof Top (D,Start or U,6)
    
    Here you are on a rooftop in the desert. In the background there appears
    the old ruins of a city with very little left. There are vultures
    circling around, and a very bright sun in the background.
    I believe that this is Cinders Stage
    
    
    - Sky Top (D,5 --- Player 1 Does It Then Player 2)
    
    Well here is one of the more nasty scenes in the game, not for the
    weak stomach. You are on top of a small (roof-like) brick area with
    clouds flying towards you very fast! (enough to make you motion sick)
    The big problem here is you can get knocked off of the brick top at any
    time! If you are close to the edge, and someone charges, you going to
    have quite a fall! You see your character falling for several seconds
    towards you, then poof, the body makes a cut-out (similar to a
    gingerbread man shape) in the ground. (A quick loss of $.50 here!)
    
    - Alter (D,2)
    
    You are now in a marble type alter room. A candle lit area, and pillars with
    bloody horns, and skulls attached. The room has a very cool looking
    reflection to it on the floor. This is Riptor's pad.
    
    - Dungeon (U,2)
    
    This is a infinite scrolling stage, which means you CANNOT get trapped
    into a corner!(yea) The background just keeps repeating some pillars.
    
    - Tiger Shrine (???)
    
    This stage has a large Golden Tiger head built into the back wall. It looks
    straight out of a D&D adventure, with jewels and gold. This is Jago's
    hangout.

    _/                              Controls                                  _/

    Your character is controlled by using 6 buttons and 1 joystick.
    The top row of buttons are high attacks/punches and the row bottom are low
    
    attacks/kicks.  To keep the move list simple I will use the numbers 1-6 to
    represent button presses.  Below is the map.
    
              1  2  3
    
              4  5  6
    
    If you have played the SF games then the buttons are:
    1 = Quick Punch   2 = Middle Punch        3 = Fierce Punch
    4 = Quick Kick    5 = Middle Kick         6 = Fierce Kick
    
    Pull Back (away from opponent) to block.
    
    To explain joystick movements I will use the following:
    
    F = Forward     B = back        D = Down        U = Up
    
    QCT= quarter circle towards     QCB = quarter circle back
    
    HCT = half circle towards       HCB = half circle back
    
    Some new found moves and shadow moves require that you hold a button,
    do the joystick movement and then release the button. For these I
    will put a (H) for hold and a (R) for release followed by the button.
    Also, most regular moves can be done in this style as well if you
    find that you play better by holding then releasing.
    
    I've found that not all moves are quarter or half circle.
    There are moves that seem to require a 3/4 circle from back to top.
    For these I will use 3/4CT. (for 3/4 circle towards, from back to top)
    
    Also, the way I describe the moves may change.  I have been told that
    some moves work better if you use F,D,D/B (down back) instead of making
    a circle.  I will look into this!  But for now, I will still use the
    circle method.
    
    There are moves requiring a quarter circle from Forward up to
    forward down. These are noted as FU,F,FD.
    
    Almost all the characters have a move using QCT and Punch, I just do not
    know exactly what they all do. (yet)
    
    With ALL characters: B,3 when very close will make you do a hard
    looking hit that your opponent will have to stand up and block. This move
    is basically instead of throws. It stops your opponent from 'turtleing'.
    With B,2 (On new versions) You will do a fake overhead then you can
    attack low if you opponent stands up!
    
    * Moves that start with Back normally need to charge. (hold back for a
      few seconds).
    
    Moves that do not end with a number (a specific button) can use any
    button (punch or kick where specified). The greater the number the
    longer the move will last.
    
    All players have a special move when getting up from being knocked down.
    These will be listed in each section as Knockdown move.

    Similar to another Midway game Up and Start is Random Select.
    
    When choosing a character, if both players push Down and Start, the
    announcer says 'Combo Breaker'. Rumored to make the breakers easier,
    I have been told that the Combo Breaker move can then be done with
    any button!
    
    It both players hold to the right, and hold buttons 1 2 3 (after choosing a
    character) you will here a swish sound and then be in TURBO mode. This mode
    is VERY fast, and long combos are difficult to execute. Utra combos look
    awesome! And contrary to popular belief you can do this in single player
    mode, but you still have to do the move on both sides.
    
    When you are on your chosen character (and have not pressed a button)
    moving the joystick Up and Down will allow you to change the colors
    of your player. (I believe there are 7)
    
    Play as Eyedol: See his section for moves!
    
    Moves with * in front of them have not yet been confirmed by myself, or more
    than one person.  As I try them, or anyone else (besides the person who gives
    them to me in the first place) says they worked I will take off the *.  I am
    not saying I don't trust people..., I just don't want to get flamed by
    people saying "Your FAQ says this, and it doesn't work, and I lost,and..."
    So let me know if you can confirm a move, especially now with the
    new version out!

    A young looking African-American boxer.  He wears black shorts
    and an American flag pattern tank top.  He is huge and pretty powerful.

    * Spinal *
    **********
    
    Description:
    Height: 5'5"
    Weight: 110
    Age: 2650
    
    An unprecedented discovery in cell regeneration, Ultratech have recreated
    an ancient warrior from the past. Having no memory, and lacking in purpose
    he fights regardless.
    
    He's a Skeleton warrior.  He wields a huge scimitar in his left hand and a
    shield in his right.  Wears a red bandanna around his head.  And he lets
    loose this really evil (ala Tales from the Crypt) laugh when he wins.
    
    Spinal can Morph into the other characters, but only the character
    he is fighting against!
    
    Easy way to beat Eyedol: (Once you got that far and probably died),
    continue and do the Combo Breaker Code (Down and start on both joystick
    before the round) Then do the Morph move and use Eyedol to beat Eyedol.
    As soon as he starts to fight back, do the combo breaker. (Be careful
    not to blow up).
    
    **** Infinite Powerup (Confirmed) With only 1 circleing skull, hold 1, Half
    Circle Towards, Press 2 and release 1. Spinal Will throw 2 Skulls! You
    
    opponent will think...humm must be a glitch, but now you can throw 2
    fireballs ANY time with that same movement. You can also throw single
    fireballs with the usual HCT,Punch. Spinal can still do combo-breakers but
    CANNOT absorb any projectiles or he will blow up! He will be Powered up
    for the rest of the match!

                            use, he will do a different opponent combo.

    Note about the Absorption shield. If you have at least one skull around you
    then some of your moves will give you a second hit. Also, Spinal can only
    have up to six skulls. If he gets anymore then that, he will explode and
    be left with only one skull.
    
    Ending: Tired of being constantly surrounded by death and destruction,
    Spinal decides on a career change. Although nominated for an Oscar for his
    first film, Spinal still has difficulty finding roles with meat in them.

    A convict, experimented on by Ultratech. A failed chemical weapon test
    mutated his body turning him into living flame. If he defeats Glacius,
    he enters the fray.
    
    He is similar to Glacius but he is made of fire!  He always has a glow
    around him and little puffs of flame coming off him floating upward.
    My complaint here is that if player two chooses him, he look's like
    Glacius with a red flame around him.

    Ending: As he leaves victorious, cinder finds a hostile police reception
    waiting for him outside Ultratech's gates. No stranger to confinement
    because of his former life of crime, Cinder has no intention of being
    imprisoned again. Using his newly acquired power, he easily evades the
    law and escapes.

    Description:
    Height: 7'0
    Weight: 700
    Age: 4
    
    A product of Ultratech's DNA manipulation project. By mixing human and
    reptilian genes, they hope to cross intelligence and ferocity in a lethal
    fighting machine.

    rule the Earth.
    
    **********
    * Eyedol * You can play as him!
    **********
    
    He is the 'boss' character. He is a 2 headed giant, wielding a big club.
    He swings his club like a baseball bat, he spits fireballs, sometimes 3
    in a row. (more once I see him!)
    
    Play As Eyedol: Pick Riptor and hold 1,2,4 and left till the VS screen pops
    up, then hold 2,3,6 and right till you hear EYEDOL! You can even play 2
    player! His combos are TOUGH, and he is a tough one to play. Use his Golf
    Swing a lot!
    ** Note: His moves do NOT need to charge back, just do B,F move.
    
    Know moves:
    Fireball:               HCT,punch
    Tripple Fireball:
    Headbutt Charge:        B,F,1  (Good Combo Starter)
    Club Swing:             B,F,2
    Golf Club Swing:        B,F,3
    Forward Jump Smash:     B,F,4
    Straight Up Jump Smash: B,F,5
    Backward Jump Smash: B,F,6
    Stop Ground:            B,2 (Does not regain Energy! Maybe after a combo?)
    All jumps will avoid projectiles!
    
    *Stomp to 3 Fireballs:  B,2,HCF,3
    Stomp to Leap Attack:   B,2,F,Kick
    Stomp to Head Ram:      B2,F1
    Stomp to Head Ram to Super Golf Swing:  B,2,F1,B3
    
    To stop stomping press 2
    To stop chargingpress b,1
    
    
    Air juggle move:        B,F,1  (And you can keep your opponent up there like th
    e old
                                    Cheep err Chief Thunder Days)
    
    Combo Breaker:          B,F, Punch
    
    ? hit Combo:            bd1,f1,b5,f3 then Juggle
    ? hit Combo:            b,f,4,b1,f3
    ? hit Combo:            B,F,1,B,3,3,3,3,F,3
    
    
    Some stuff about playing as him:
    Well it was fun for the first 2 times... after that nobody has been really
    interested. His combo's are tough to do, and without knowing any fatalities
    it makes him kinda boring. Hopefully we will know more soon!
    
    My guess is Midway leaked this because their new Chip will ship soon
    and will probably be different in how you play Eyedol, and decided to
    get their money's worth.
    
    I also agree with a post that said DO NOT tell everyone about this. I
    also do not want to be fighting Eyedol EVERY time I play against some
    newbie squid.
    
    Play as Eyedol Bug! I haven't had a chance to try it, mostly because it
    has not been duplicated yet. But here is what happened. A friend was
    playing as spinal (against Eyedol) Did the morph into Eyedol and hit
    START (with credits in the machine). (He hit the opposite start button).
    then the screen showed the Eyedol square and another with the second
    player. He hit start again (on both) and boom. He WAS Eyedol. The only
    move figured out was back and 3 for the club against the ground. NO
    charge back then F moves (yet). We could not do it again (tried for
    about 2 hours). More as I find out! Don't waste your money till we get
    the details straightened out.
    
    He regains his health by stomping in place!
    He can shoot 3 fast fireballs at once.
    
    Ending: Haven't seen it, but told it was funny.

    * Rumors *
    **********
    
    The game was designed in Europe, and just created here.
    There are more then just Humiliations, and No Mercy's.
    There are some hidden characters.
    There are more then 2 hidden levels.
    The current version number of the latest release is 1.4
    Midway is changing moves and Stages with every release version to make
    the FAQ un-accurate. (So if something doesn't work..let me)
    
    ********
    * Bugs *
    ********
    TJ Combo's Ultimate does not say Ultimate afterwards...just the kind of
    combo.
    
    Not known, but most likely a hardware bug that is also in SOME MK II
    machines, nobody will be able to move. The characters just stand there.
    If you hit the machine (near the joystick's) this will free them up.
    At a arcade here, this is a constant and they will NOT fix them. They
    have signs that say play at your own risk... no refund!
    **How to fix this problem! It seems that the grounding wire is a bit too
    long and gets bent up and touches the controls. If you take the wire and
    ground it to the screw in the middle of the control panel by the edge, and
    make sure it's tight, so it wont touch anything when the panel is shut, this
    should fix it! If your arcade has this problem, please suggest this fix.
    
    Both Jago and Orchid (computer players) seem to be able to do Ultimate's
    during the first round! Please fix this Midway!
    
    
    When the computer used to say No Mercy, it now says 'Danger Danger' Which
    IMHO is a little too late.  Hopefully this will be changed back!  It should
    say danger when you have about 2 hits left! (To let your opponent know when
    to start the ultimate combo ;-)
    
    Just a personal thing. Midway needs to fix the collision detection for jump
    over attacks. Either make it like Kombat or take them out. But jumping over
    someone then pressing kick once you past is a CHEESY way to get in hits.
    
    ********
    * Misc *
    ********
    
    Release Dates: (yea) It should be everywhere.
    
    Thanks to a certain new inside source I am finding out about the
    air combo's and many of the Hold button moves. Just when I thought
    I could do some catching up, we discover many more moves.
    
    Apologies for not refining many things yet. I know that many moves
    only require QCT and not half's. I am working on it. The holidays were
    very busy. I plan on updating this soon, because I am sure I will
    find out about the Air Combos in the next few days! I will try to
    update it atleast once every 2 weeks. (more often as important moves
    come in.)
