Foreword :
The KOF dream match tournament is out on the PS ! I
tried it at my friend's house and it rocks !! Loads
fast and houses the usual artwork galley and special
modes to test your skill, the translation isn't as
bad as it seems. There one or two things I dislike is
that the sound wasn't too good, and also the characters
on the screen are quite shrunk down from '97.

UPDATED : -SURVIVOR MODE 

Codes and tricks :
Okay, I found out about the tricks that are available
for the PS edition of KOF98.

Terry Bogard, Billy Kane, Mai Shiranui, Andy Bogard, Yashiro, Chris
Shermie, Ryo, Robert, Yuri, Kyo, Joe

-Hold L1 and change the above mentioned characters into their special
 version.

The addition moves that I know of :-

Terry -
Fire Kick (Down, Down-toward, Toward + Kick)
He loses the Power charge and his second Power overshield super.

Billy -
* Salamander Stream (Down, Down-toward, Toward (x2) + Punch)
He loses the Chain smasher super.

Mai -
* Flower Hurricane (Down, Down-toward, Toward (X2) + Punch)
She has a few different moves from the Real Bout 2 game.

Andy -
* Dan Da Dan (Down, Down-toward, Toward (X2) + Punch)
He has this new super in this mode.

Yashiro -
He converts into the Orochi Yashiro from KOF97. Same moves
as in KOF97 Orochi version.

Chris -
He converts into the Orochi Chris from KOF97. Same moves
as in KOF97 Orochi version.

Shermie -
She converts into the Orochi Shermie from KOF97. Same moves
as in KOF97 Orochi version.

Joe -
He turns into KOF94 Joe - his Hurricanes are able to go full
screen now.

Kyo Kusanagi-
He turns into his KOF95 version, he fires projectiles like he
did in KOF95. Oh yes, he still can do the infinity kicking attack
using the EXTRA mode version of him. What a trash !!!!

Ryo, Robert, Yuri -
-The trio are converted back to their old KOF95 versions, where
they fire projectiles out. Their Haosohoken supers are still super
attacks. Their moves are the close to the ones used in KOF95.

-Yuri has a new super in the KOF95 version of her :
Grand fist uppercut : (Down, Down-toward, Toward (x2) + Punch) 

Friendship match -
Select a character and hold Select. The next character you pick
will then cause a face to show up on your chosen character's face.
This will determine if the chosen one will help the current character
by giving him/her a power stock & help break submission attacks.

SURVIVOR MODE :
To access a more diffcult survivor mode, highlight the SURVIVOR option
on the main menu and press START+TRIANGLE+CIRCLE. There is no extra
characters other than those mentioned above.
