Translation of the SS3 Chinese FAQ
[Translation and notes by Kenneth Hsu (e3321942@student.uq.edu.au).

Normal attacks:

A: Weak Slash
B: Medium Slash
C: Heavy Slash
D: Kick attacks

A, B, C become punches when weaponless, D kick attacks stay the same
with or without weapons.

A+B: Dodge (at long distance)
     Sidestep to back of opponent (when close)

-o + BC:  Overhead attacks (need to block standing)
o-  / | \  -o: Block stuns opponent (if have weapon),
   o  o  o     Catches opponent's weapon and throw (if weaponless)

-o + C: push guard crush
o- + C: pull guard crush

A+B+C:  Power up

\  + D:  crouching sweep kick
o

-o + D:  standing kick (but still need to block crouching)

/ + D:  light kicks
o

-o -o: forward dash
o- o-: back dash

Difficulty Levels:
     1) Enhanced:  Power meter always full, no blocking
     2) Normal:  Can block normally, Power meter goes up when you are
                 hit or by pressing A+B+C
     3) Easy:  Auto-blocking (limited number of auto-blocks)
               Power meter only goes up when A+B+C are pressed

Individual Characters:
(note:  I don't know how to translate the name of the moves from
        Chinese so I will try my best to (these are literal
        translations from the chinese move names and some sounds very
        terrible in English.  I guess eventually you can substitute
        the proper English moves names when someone does bother to
        copy down the move lists) if I don't already know the move's
        name in English)

Moves with a @ sign at front requires weapon
Moves with a S at front is a weapon breaking move (power move)
