VF2 Taunts FAQ v0.5A

Disclaimer
----------

I'm *not* too fluent in Japanese! Send me your comments about
this text file and I'll revise it. I'm especially sensitive to
*grammatical errors* in the Japanese quotes. Also, I'm not
absolutely sure which button controls which quote.

Code
----

[Win/Loss/Time],[A/G/P/K]

Win       The player wins
Loss      The player loses and doesn't continue the game
Time      Time out
A         The player wins flawlessly (the character has 100%
          energy at the end of the round) and doesn't press any
          button
G         The player holds Guard button
P         The player holds Punch button
K         The player holds Kick button

All quotes marked with a [?] are uncertain or unconfirmed.

If the player fights an AI enemy and the player loses, the
player can use the other player's set of buttons to choose the
AI enemy's quote.

Note
----

When VF2 first came out, I was one of the first blokes in r.g.v.a
to ask for a transcript/translation of the VF2 characters'
quotes. No one volunteered to do it. In early June 1995, some
blokes in r.g.v.a were again asking for a transcript/translation.
This time I decided to assume the initiative. Since I don't
subscribe to Gamest, I'm doing this compilation the hard way.

To those who don't get the "Lion McFly" joke: It has something to
do with his life vest. Watch the sci-fi movie _Back to the Future._

No, Shiranui Mai the bouncy and cute kunoichi (FF2, FFS, KOF94,
FF3, KOF95) is *not* in VF2! I wish she is though, thank you very
much. If you've seen Tom Woof's pics, you'll know how Mai-chan
looks in three-dimensional solid-modelling.
