0. VERSION HISTORY                                                        [VER]

   01.1 - Basic FAQ, 
          Version history added,
          Introduction added,
          Game system added,
          Most characters move sets added,
          Secrets added,

===============================================================================

1. INTRODUCTION                                                           [INT]

   Hi there and welcome to my first attempt at a FAQ.  I wanted to make this
FAQ since at the time of writing, there is no other FAQ/Movelist for this game.
I just didn't want anybody missing out on another great game from SNK Playmore.
   At the current state, ver01.1, all the information is a compilation of stuff
that I discovered in my play and from the Noise Factory website.  Hopefully, 
later versions will carry information provided by other players as well, I also
intend to include a combo and tactics section into this FAQ when I have devoted
more time to this game.  That's really all for now...

===============================================================================

2. GAME SYSTEM                                                            [SYS]

   Firstly, this game uses a common SNK Neo Geo layout, ie. buttons A,B,C,D.
As such, this FAQ shall refer to these buttons as A,B,C, and D.

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

   2.1 SYSTEM NOTATION                                                    [NOT]

   Please note that these controls assume you are on the LEFT side of the
screen, mirror directions for the RIGHT side, ie. LEFT becomes RIGHT but UP
DOESN'T become DOWN!  When two or more buttons are typed beside each other, 
ie. AB, it means to press A and B together.

   NOTATION = DESCRIPTION

   A          Light Punch
   B          Light Kick
   C          Hard Punch
   D          Hard Kick
   START      Taunt

   u          Direction UP = Jump
   AIR u      Second jump in the air 
   d          Direction DOWN = Crouch
   b          Direction LEFT = Move's back enemy (also blocks)
   AIR b      Aerial block
   f          Direction RIGHT = Move's forward

   HOLD       Hold the designated button / direction
   CLOSE      Be beside enemy
   AIR        Can only be done when your character is in the air 
   BLOCK      Can only be done during a successful block
   
   f,f HOLD   RUN
   b,b        Hops backwards
   f+AB       EVADES forward, temporary invincibility except against throws
   b+AB       EVADES backwards, same properties as forward evade

   CLOSE f+C  THROWS enemy when near them
   CD         KNOCKDOWN, forces enemy to fall to the ground upon connection
   d+CD       LAUNCHER, hits enemy into the air, opens up combo opportunities
   BLOCK CD   COUNTER that breaks enemy's attack but consumes 1 STRESS METER

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

   2.2 REFEREE CONTROLS                                                   [REF]

   If you happen to see the Referee in the background during a fight, you can
call him on for some support!

   REF in background - press BC - brings REF to foreground and allows these;

   REF in front - press b/f+BC - use REF as sheild to allow quick counters
   REF behind - press b/f+BC - use REF as a human projectile

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

   2.3 STRESS METER                                                       [STR]

   Your chosen character's life is displayed at the top of the screen and on
the bottom is where your Stress Meter is. This is basically a bar that lets you
use COUNTER, STRESS SHOT, IPPATSU OUGI, AND KINJITE.  When one bar fills up,
your character will scream and release an aura for a second.  This aura
protects the player from any further attack, thereby breaking any combos and
this aura also cannot be blocked in the air.  The downside of this stress meter
is that you cannot build it up by attacking.  You can only build it up by doing
actions the game would deem stressful.  That means getting attacked whether
blocked or not will build the stress meter, as will having your attacks blocked
by the enemy. This is similar to the RAGE bar in SNK's Samurai Showdown series,
where the player at an disadvantage will recieve more stress meter to help them
out.  Taunting successfully also builds up your stress meter.

   TECHNIQUE  =  STRESS METER CONSUMPTION

   COUNTER       1 METER
   STRESS SHOT   1 METER
   IPPATSU OUGI  2 METERS
   KINJITE       3 METERS

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

   2.4 LIFE METER                                                         [LIF]

   Your characters life is shown across the top of the screen like most
fighting games. In Matrimelee, the life drains when you receive damage but you
will see two overlapping bars when you do get hit, the lime green bar on top,
and a red bar underneath.  The green bar records your health, once that is down
to nothing, you'll be KO'd.  The red bar always appears when you get hit. It
shows recoverable health.  By avoiding further damage after an attack, the red
bar slowly turns green, giving more life to you.  In theory, this means you can
defeat someone very quickly if you stay close and combo them heavily to avoid
their red bar from recovering.  This also means you may want to play on the
defensive when you are in trouble to regain some precious health.  If you are
knocked into the air, and fail to perform a safe landing, ie. hit the ground,
then you will automatically lose all of the red bar.  Final note, when you
build up a Stress Meter and 'scream' the red bar will refill completely.

===============================================================================

3. MOVE SETS                                                              [MOV]

   Here there are move lists for the characters.  This section is organized so,
you can see the character's name, quick stats, and move commands followed by a
description of the move.  Character's are sorted alphabetically by their ingame
names, ie. the names displayed under their life bars.  Moves are written in
level, ie.normal moves at top and Stress Shots and Ippatsu Ougis at the bottom.
My descriptions may take several lines so each line should describe one motion
of the move, special notes such as overheads and sweeps will be marked on a new
line in the description with brackets.  Notations as follows;

   QCF - quarter circle forward - d,df,f
   QCB -  quarter circle back   - d,db,b
   FDP -  forward dragon punch  - f,d,df
   RDP -  reverse dragon punch  - b,d,db
   HCF -  half circle forward   - b,db,d,df,f
   HCB -    half circle back    - f,df,d,db,b

   This is where the secrets for the game go;
   
   - RAGE OF THE DRAGONS CHARACTERS
     To play as the RotD fighters (Elias, Jimmy, Jones, Lynn) do this at the
character select screen [UP, UP, UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, LEFT, RIGHT]
        (note ; this is the Abubo code in RotD)

   - PLAY AS PRINCESS SISSY
     To play as Sissy, the games boss, just pick any character and HOLD ABCD
untill the prefight screen appears.  If done correctly, Sissy will replace your
fighter.
