INTRODUCTION :

Yes! Finally the Neo Geo CDZ King of Fighters'99 is here in Singapore about 2 weeks ago. 
I'm all hyped about it as this is my first time using Kyo version2 in my team, 
as well as my debut Kyo version2 FAQ.
I always thought that Kyo version2 will be similar to Shin Kyo. After playing him 
for a few days, I must say that I'm actually quite impressed, because Kyo version2 
can execute new combos in which Shin Kyo can't. Most of their moves are the same but 
their fighting styles are not exactly identical. Soon after experimenting him for awhile, 
I started to fancy his moves. 
So I have decided to write this FAQ as a personal interest and also as a tribute to the 
SNK newly created character. Enjoy the FAQ and do correct me if some points are found wrong.

MOVELIST OF KYO VERSION 2 :

As all that I have known, Kyo-2 is "combo" based character. His moves are extracted 
and mixed into a new style from Shin-Kyo. I will include a brief description of each 
moves and please pardon me as I have given names to some of the moves myself.

+----------------------------------------------------------------------

                                SLAMS
+----------------------------------------------------------------------
Normal slam         | fw/bk + C/D when near opponent

+----------------------------------------------------------------------
Thunder Axe         | fw + B
Positive            | This move consist of 2-parts. The 1st can be        
                      cancel into Special Moves. The 2nd is an overhead. 
                      A good mind game can be played with it.
                      The advantage of this move is that both hits can  
                      be chained.

ENDING SPEECH :

Phew!!!... finally, after a week testing out Kyo-2's combos using Neo Geo CDZ, spending 
hours in the night writing this FAQ, its has come to an end now. I took great effort and 
precious time in trying to get all these combos, and I personally tried them out to make 
sure each and everyone of it works, so I hope you guys and gals, will appreciate what I 
have done. 
Although Kyo-2 is no popular character in KOF'99 yet, but I hope with this FAQ, u all will 
start to use him and make him a popular character too...8)
If you have any comments or contributions, mail me. 
To those whom I may indirectly have forgotten to give credits to, don't SUE me, just mail 
me and remind me ok? Till then, enjoy KoF'99 and don't forget sleep....zzzzzzz.
