    Razorclaw X (spiceoflife@REMOVETHIShotmail.com)
    The Neo Geo Pocket Color, produced by SNK, has the unique 
    ability to link-up with a home console system, in this case, 
    the Sega Dreamcast. This allows programmers producing for 
    both systems to add extra goodies for those who support their 
    This guide covers: 
    - King of Fighters: Dream Match '99 (Dreamcast) 
    - King of Fighters R-2 (Neo Geo Pocket Color) 
    - SNK Vs. Capcom: Match of the Milennium (Neo Geo Pocket Color) 
    - Capcom Vs. SNK (forthcoming Dreamcast title) 
    - King of Fighters '99: Evolution (Dreamcast) 
    - King of Fighters: Battle de Paradise (Neo Geo Pocket Color) 
    Version History
    - 1.1 Added information on KOF: Evolution and Battle de 
      Paradise, as well as additional Capcom Vs. SNK information.  
    - 1.0 First Release (6/14/2000)
    What you need: 
      - Sega Dreamcast (hereafter: DC)
      - Neo Geo Pocket Color (hereafter: NGPC)
      - Neo Geo Pocket Dreamcast Link Cable (Sug. Retail: $29.99)
      - NGPC Linkable Game Cartridge (Price Varies)
      - DC Linkable Game 
    In order to properly link the NGPC and DC make sure both 
    systems are off. Plug in the large end of the cable into the 
    back of the DC (in the serial port); make sure it is firmly in 
    place. Place the smaller end of the cable into the NGPC; make 
    sure it is firmly in place (it should snap together if you push 
    it in enough). Now turn on the DC and the NGPC.

    1. King of Fighters R-2
    The Dreamcast link yields you skills for KOF R-2 and points for 
    the picture gallery in King of Fighters: Dream Match '99.  
    * KOF DM'99 
      Information can be transferred as follows: 
        - Gallery mode points can be transferred (up to a maximum 
          of 3800 points) to unlock all ten image galleries. This 
          is completely useless as KOF'99 has been out for quite 
          some time. 
        - Points can be uploaded from KOF: DM'99 to KOF R-2 for 
          each character you have achieved 100 points for. This is 
          by far the more useful of the link functions, and the 
          skills gained are given below:

    2. King of Fighters: Battle de Paradise 
    Battle de Paradise is only available in Japanese and must be 
    imported (along with KOF: Evolution).  However, there is enough 
    English text in the game such that it is a simple matter to link 
    the two games together.  
    * King of Fighters '99: Evolution 
      Information can be transferred as follows: 
        - DC to NGPC: This uploads ability points earned through 
          KOF: Evolution (through Arcade mode, Time Attack, or 
          either Survival modes).  You can upload as many points as 
          you wish.  The result will unlock extra Strikers and game 
          boards at certain levels.  
        - NGPC to DC: Transfers Striker information to KOF: Evolution.  
          This is the more important ability, as it unlocks Extra 
          Strikers for free.  You can download any character whenever 
          you wish, including the exclusive characters, Gai and Syo, 
          which are unlocked by game points in BdP.  
          Strikers start at level 1, for both Justice and Dark 
          versions, and gain levels according to the stars you 
          accumulate in BdP.  The higher level Striker you transfer to 
          KOF: Evolution, the stronger, and more damage they do.  
    3. SNK Vs. Capcom
    SNK Vs. Capcom: Match of the Millennium (hereafter: MOTM) has the 
    ability to link up with two DC games: the home version of MOTM 
    (which has yet to be released as of this writing) and The King 
    of Fighters: Dream Match '99. 
    * Capcom Vs. SNK 
      Information can only be downloaded to the DC game; in this 
      case it is the points earned from the Olympics mode. These 
      points are used to buy hidden characters in Capcom Vs. SNK, and 
      this may be a far faster alternative than accumulating the 
      points in-game.  
    * KOF DM'99 
      Information can be uploaded from DM'99. This gives you a set 
      of Olympics points depending on a number of factors: 
        - Characters in DM'99 who have accumulated 100 points may 
          upload points to MOTM. Refer to a DM'99 FAQ for more 
        - The character appearing in the linking screen determines 
          how many points you get from a specific character. It 
          is generated randomly from the available SNK characters 
          in MOTM that originated from KOF. 
        - You may only upload points for any given character ONCE. 
          In other words, you have a maximum of 38 times per 
          MOTM game cartridge to upload points. 
      Most character points generate only 400 Olympics points, but 
      if you match them with characters they are related to in MOTM 
      the point value may increase or decrease-- ie. Kyo and Shingo, 
      Terry and Terry, Ryo and Robert. Some possible character 
      combinations are given below: 
        * Kyo 
            + Kyo 
            + Benimaru 
            + Daimon
            + Shingo 
            + Saisyu 
            - Iori-- Gives no points! 
            - Chizuru-- Gives 100 points. 
        * Iori (he's only good for Iori points) 
            + Iori
            - Vice-- Gives 150 points 
            - Mature-- Gives 150 points 
            - Chizuru 
            - Leona 
            - Kyo-- Gives no points! 
        * Terry 
            + Terry
            + Andy 
            + Joe 
            + Mai
            + Mary
            - Kim-- Gives 380 points (what a rip) 
        * Ryo 
            + Ryo 
            + Robert 
            + Yuri 
            + Takuma 
            + King 
        * Yuri 
            + Yuri 
            + Ryo 
            + Robert 
            + Takuma 
        * Mai 
            + Mai 
            + Andy 
        * Athena 
            + Athena
            + Kensou 
            + Chin  
        * Leona 
            + Leona 
            + Ralf 
            + Clark 
            + Heidern 
      Usually when uploading points for the character appearing in 
      the linking screen will yield 700 Olympic points. In other 
      cases think of character relationships in KOF when deciding 
      who to upload points for which character (ie, it might not 
      be a good idea to give Billy points to Terry. I ended up 
      uploading Billy's points for Iori but I got 400 points 
      This ability isn't terribly useful unless you have played 
      DM'99 enough to get 100 points for every character (if you 
      did it for KOF R-2 like I did) or you're looking for easy 
      points to buy new supers. 
      Whatever you do, don't upload Kyo's points when Iori is 
      hosting the link and vice versa! :) 
    Neo Geo Pocket, King of Fighters and characters belong to SNK. 
    Dreamcast belongs to Sega. Capcom and characters belong to Capcom.
