                                Rival Schools FAQ V1.8 11/08/1998
                        by: SoulEdge souledge@earthlink.net
    
    	This is a simple FAQ and move list for those new and used to the game.
    Note that there will be no fancy graphics or ASCII works of art, just info.
    
    BASIC ATTACKS
    
    LP= Light Punch  HP= Heavy Punch     D(own)F(orward)+Heavy Attack = Air Launcher
    LK= Light Kick   HK= Heavy Kick       (Sets up air combos.)
    U(p)+Direction = Regular Jump D,U+Direction = Super Jump
    F,F= Dash B(ack),B= Back Hop
    
    Basic Combo Theory
    
    1. 2. Light Attack X2
    3. Heavy Attack
    4. Direction of Joystick + Heavy Attack (This includes launchers) or Special
    Move
    5. Special Move or Burning Vigor Attack(Some Characters can do their launcher
    in this step after pressing Forward +Heavy Attack in the previous one.)
    
    Tardy Counters
    
    Tardy Counters are nothing more than blocking and doing another attack
    while in mid-block animation.
    
    Defensive Fall
    
    While falling, press either any two punches or kicks or Motion B,DB,D,HP or HK
    
    Throws and Sidestepping
    
    You must be next to an opponent to throw
    To throw press LP+HP
    To throw a crouching opponent press D+LP+HP
    To air throw while in the air press LP+HP
    To Sidestep press LK+HK
    To Sidestep the other way press D+LK+HK
    
    Team-up Attack
    
    To do a team up attack, you must:
    1. Have two levels on your Burning Vigor bar (you can tell if you can do a 
    team up attack by seeing you partner's portrait next to your B.V. bar.)
    2. press the LP+LK or HP+HK buttons.
    
    Team-up attacks vary from person to person. (Note: the team-up attacks I
    list will occur only if the character is your inactive one.)
    
    SPECIFIC CHARACTERS
    
    This section will focus on selected(not all) characters in the game. Names
    that I use for moves may or may not be the official names. There will be
    two combos that I have selected to display for each character.
