     Well, this isn't a big FAQ, but it's a very fast reference to know
the Super cancel moves for each character in KOF 2001. We try than this
FAQ be totally confirmed. We have seen each super cancel in this FAQ in
video or where we play, if not, it will be marked.

       - = [                 What's new in this version .2   ] = -

    Version 1.0
      - Basic FAQ structure, all the super cancel moves than we can
        remember, aaahh! is too late!....
    Version 1.2
      - Recopilation of most of combos....
    Version 1.3
      - Uuuuta!! more job!
    Version 1.5
      - Well 37 is not bad, I think than some moves are wrong
        (specially K9999, Foxy, Kula) but I'll search the names
        and I'll correct the names.
    Version 1.8
      - WOOOOOW! Por fin! We're ready for the first relase in April!
        Sorry about the spelling mistakes! Correct us!
    Version 2.2
      - Well, contributions, and I have to say, we don't make this FAQ
        with the ROM, all was make in arcade, on april 11th the ROM
        was published. We'll use now the ROM to check all the FAQ....
    Version 2.4
      - More contributions, added notes about Kensou, Foxy and K9999
        moves, Ignis section... we need Chang, Choi and Goro's combos
        and cancel moves....

      - Correction in Igniz section plus his basic combo...
    Version 2.8
      - A couple of contributors with much help! thanxs. Corrections

        Also the Chin section was update, maybe some names are wrong
        correct us!!
    Version 3.0
      - Corrections (Maxima, Kyo) and combos. Well, this is embarrasing,
        there's a mistake in Clark supercancel, the Gattling Attack
        (charge b, f + A/C) can't be canceled for any reason, maybe
        was cancelable in a BETA version, but is our fault publish it in
        the FAQ without absotule certain. We don't have proof of the
        Goro, Chang and Choi's supercancels.
          Check the notes on them.
