_______________________________________________________________________________

 Variable Geo. .. This is a weaponless fighting tournament held once a year to
 decide on the strongest waitress. The super major multinational corporation
 Jyahana Group sponsors this tournament with a prize of a total amount of
 1,000,000,000 (billion) yen. (About 10$ million US.) Furthermore the player
 will belong to the enterprise, and will be given a first-class residence in
 their district.

 Already the meeting has been held three times to count, the defending champion
 Reimi Jyahana has not been defeated, at least not yet ..

      M / MID               - attack can be guarded standing or crouching
      H / HIGH              - attack must be guarded while standing
      L / LOW               - attack must be guarded while crouching

 d  - Startup Frames
      The number of frames that initiate at the beginning of an attack. (This

      disallowed to do another action.

 g  - +Hit / Advantage on Hit
      The difference in the number of frames between when both characters will
      return to neutral stance after an attack has successfully hit. (Positive
      numbers mean that the player can act first; negative means the opponent
      can act first.)

                              juggle or air combination for additional damage.
      PRJ (Projectile)      - attack that either appears as or creates an
                              independent object on screen.
      (v-air)               - property happens against an aerial opponent.


[  //  2.5 - Frame Data  ]  ---------------------------------------------------

 The idea of "frame data" can be a bit intimidating to new players. It is one
 of the best and scariest ways to help improve your game, but only if you fully
 understand what you are looking at覧and why you are looking at it. Many expert
 players in the fighting game community will talk about 'advantage' and moves
 that are 'unsafe,' and this is where it all stems from. Frame data is the most
 accurate way to measure events and timing in fighting games. This area will
 help to break down what a lot of this information means, to help you grasp the
 concepts better in order to use it throughout your gameplay.

(  Frames  )  -----------------------------------------------------------------

 A 'frame' is a game`s unit of time measurement. `Advanced Variable Geoエ (AVG)
 runs at 60 frames per second like most modern games do. Which means in a span
 of one full second, there are 60 frames of sprite animation that takes place.
 Not all of it is noticeable or easy to recognize, but it`s there.

 Like many older 2D games, AVG`s animation is built on "trailing sprites". That
 means that each movement and attack frame is not a unique sprite; instead,
 one sprite can last anywhere from 2-7 frames` worth of animation. So to the
 naked eye, an attack can appear to be only four frames because that`s how many
 different sprite animations there are, but in actuality the move is lasting
 far longer due to the span of the frame. For example, with Jun`s Standing HP,
 it carries out like this:

 Sprite 1 (6f), Sprite 2 (6f), Sprite 3 (6f), Sprite 4 (4f), Sprite 5 (4f)
 |___________|  |__________________________|  |__________________________|
    Startup                Active                       Recovery

 The entire attack only has five -different- sprites of animation, so one might
 believe the attack hits on its 2nd frame, but that`s not correct. The first
 sprite lasts for 6 frames (1/10 of a second), then the next sprite lasts for
 another 6 frames, and so on. So in full, Jun`s Standing HP is 26 frames long覧
 not 5 frames.

 This was a very common practice in early 2D game making because drawing new
 sprites can be both expensive and weigh on the graphics engines. So instead,
 sprite durations were just stretched out and drawn in a way to not have the
 game appear too blocky.

(  Startup Frames  )  ---------------------------------------------------------

 The number of frames before the attack reaches its first active frame, which
 is capable of hitting the opponent, after the command for the move has been
 correctly input. In simplest terms: the lower the number is, the faster the
 attack is able to execute. Startup frames naturally include the first frame
 of the active period. This is for ease of looking for links under +Hit (frame
 advantage): if something lists an advantage of +4, then any attack with a
 startup of 4 frames or lower works.

 For PROJECTILES, these are the number of frames until the character releases
 the attack. For projectiles that don`t hit on their first active frame (eg -
 Chiho`s Ryou Baku), additional notes will indicate when exactly the projectile
 can cause damage.

(  Active Frames  )  ----------------------------------------------------------

 The number of frames the attack is capable of striking. Basic attacks tend to
 have a small amount of active frames覧typically around 3-8 frames. Attacks
 with a high number of active frames should be worth noting. Numbers listed in
 parenthesis are inactive frames in between the active ones for multi-hitting
 attacks. An active of 'Ground' means an aerial attack will remain able to
 strike until the character lands to the ground.

 Most PROJECTLE attacks are a bit of a special case, since the active part of
 the animation is (usually) completely separate from the character`s animation.
 So the character only actually has startup and recovery animations. In which
 case projectiles have an active period listed as " 覧 " due to how their time
 on screen is determined by the positions of the characters.

(  Recovery Frames  )  --------------------------------------------------------

 The number of frames in which the attack is recovering and no longer active,
 where the character transitions back to their neutral stance so they can act
 again. Characters can`t guard or perform other actions while recovering, so
 they are left vulnerable. The recovery period is the portion that is
 circumvented when using any kind of cancel into other moves. For PROJECTILE
 attacks, recovery begins the frame after the projectile is actually released.

 'Landing Frames' are unique recovery frames that happen after the character
 lands from a jump, or after some aerial special attacks. (Some uppercut-type
 attacks that send the opponent into the air included.) What makes them unique
 is that they all can be canceled with attacks and special moves, allowing the
 character to recover faster. Recovery frame counts listed all reflect if the
 full amount of landing recovery frames transpire.

 'Ground' (or 'Grd') signifies that the character remains in recovery animation
 until they land on the ground.

 If there are two numbers in the Recovery table (eg - 3/6), the first number is
 the amount of frames if the attack hits, while the second number is if the
 attack misses. This typically is used for command throws, throw on hits, or
 attacks that have different animations on hit.

(  Advantage on Hit  )  -------------------------------------------------------

 After an attack strikes an opponent, two things occur: the attacking character
 will go through their recovery animation, and the defending character either
 goes into hitstun or guardstun (depending on if the move was blocked or not).
 Different attacks go through different recovery periods and inflict different
 amounts of guardstun or hitstun. After these times, both the attacker and the
 defender will eventually leave those animations and be allowed to act again.
 The discrepancy between when the character and the opponent both return to
 neutral stance and can perform another action is expressed with the concept of
 frame advantage (listed as '+Hit' or 'On Hit' in this FAQ). A frame advantage
 of "+7" means the character can act a full 7 frames before the opponent can do
 anything覧a rather sizable advantage! A frame advantage of "-3" means that the
 opponent instead has 3 frames to act before the character does. Whereas having
 "0" advantage means both characters return to neutral at the exact same time.

 For PROJECTILE attacks, the +Hit is based upon if the attack hits on its very
 first active frame; typically point-blank range.

 Another special case are aerial/jumping attacks. This FAQ does not include any
 frame advantage from jumping attacks simply because the numbers will always
 differ depending on when the grounded opponent is struck. The greatest amount
 of frame advantage is typically when the aerial attack hits on its very first
 active frame, like with projectiles, and then the character landing as soon as
 they possibly can覧usually on the next frame. However, that seldom will ever
 occur. Whether it is air-to-air, or air-to-ground, aerial attacks generally do
 not ever hit on their first active frame unless they are used in an air combo.
 In addition, where on the opponent`s body they are hit is also a factor. Yuka
 attacking Reimi with a Jumping HK that hits at the top of her head will give
 Yuka a much different frame advantage than if she hits Reimi much deeper in
 the chest region. (Character sprite sizes would also be a factor.)

 There is no real significant degree of guardstun in AVG like other fighting
 games, so this FAQ does not include tables to show "advantage on guard."

(  Super Techniques  )  -------------------------------------------------------

 Super Techniques in AVG do not have a dramatic buildup and feel like they do
 in other fighting games. They lack a darkening phase, or "charging up" period,
 that normally takes place during the startup frames. So these super attacks
 carry out and are executed like any other special move.

+-- [  Additional Notes  ] ---------------------------------------------------+

 - `Advanced Variable Geoエ runs at 60fps on both the Sony Playstation and
   on a Playstation emulator. However, the Sega Saturn version seems to run at
   30fps, but plays at 60fps. (Is that even possible?) I say that because when
   the game is played, it runs as smooth as its Playstation counterpart. But
   when footage is recorded and played back at 60fps, there is almost double
   the amount of frames that should normally be there. For example, Eleanor`s
   Standing Close HP plays back at its normal 10fS when captured off the PSX
   version, but has 19-20 frames of startup if played back at 60fps from the
   Saturn version. I will do some more investigation into this to see if I am
   doing anything wrong, but so far Fraps hasn`t steered me wrong.

 - The frame data listed is when the game is set at the default speed of 1. If
   the speed is altered, there is a good chance many of the numbers will be
   different due to frame skipping (or extension) that takes place for the game
   to run at that new speed. Game Speed 1 is the setting for tournament play.

[  //  3.1 - Normal Mode  ]  --------------------------------------------------

 Arcade mode. Select one of the nine characters (K-1 and K-2 cannot be chosen)
 to go through the game. You must defeat nine opponents in 2-out-of-3 rounds.
 Reimi Jyahana is the final opponent for every character, except Reimi herself.
 (Stage 6 is usually a mirror match with most characters.) Each character will
 have a set order in which they fight their opponents, and will always remain
 the same:

       Ayako  | Chiho  | Elirin |  Jun   | Kaori  | Reimi  | Satomi |  Yuka
      --------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------
 1st   Elirin | Manami | Satomi | Ayako  | Yuka   | Chiho  | Chiho  | Chiho
 2nd   Yuka   | Jun    | Yuka   | Elirin | Chiho  | Manami | Manami | Manami
 3rd   Chiho  | Ayako  | Manami | Satomi | Manami | Jun    | Jun    | Jun
 4th   Manami | Satomi | Jun    | Yuka   | Jun    | Ayako  | Ayako  | Ayako
 5th   Jun    | Yuka   | Ayako  | Chiho  | Elirin | Elirin | Elirin | Elirin
 6th   Ayako  | Chiho  | Elirin | Jun    | Satomi | Satomi | Satomi | Yuka
 7th   Satomi | Elirin | Chiho  | Manami | Kaori  | Reimi  | Yuka   | Satomi
 8th   Kaori  | Kaori  | Kaori  | Kaori  | Ayako  | Yuka   | Kaori  | Kaori
 9th   Reimi  | Reimi  | Reimi  | Reimi  | Reimi  | Kaori  | Reimi  | Reimi


 The entire chart changes in the Sega Saturn version, which looks like this:

       Ayako  | Chiho  | Elirin |  Jun   | Kaori  | Reimi  | Satomi |  Yuka
      --------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------
 1st   Satomi | Manami | Manami | Elirin | Ayako  | Elirin | Jun    | Jun

 Losing against an opponent brings up a Continue screen. You have ten seconds
 to decide on whether or not you wish to continue. Pressing Start activates the
 continue, allowing you to start the stage over against the opponent that
 defeated you. Hold the X button to speed up the time. Once the timer reaches
 0, continuing is disabled and the game is over.


[  //  3.2 - Vs. Mode  ]  -----------------------------------------------------

 Vs. Mode is made for anywhere between 0- to 2-players. There are three modes
 to choose from: "1P VS 2P," "1P VS COM," and "COM VS COM." In each mode, any
 of the 11 characters can be selected to fight 2-out-of-3 rounds.

 During the character select screen, a player has control of various functions:
 - Press the Circle button over a character to select their 1P color.
 - Press the Triangle button over a character to select their 2P color.
 - Press the Select button to select the speed of gameplay: 1 = slow, 5 = fast.
 - Press the Start button to switch the control of a character to "COM" (the
   computer) or the player.
 - Press the X button to return to the main menu. The player who has not
   selected their character can only do this.

 After characters are chosen, a screen comes up to allow you to alter the
 player`s handicaps and select a stage. Pressing the Square button only offers
 the stages of the selected characters (eg - if it`s Ayako v. Chiho, pressing
 Square will switch between only CASO and SoTo).


[  //  3.3 - Story Mode  ]  ---------------------------------------------------

 Story Mode takes you through the game`s plot, which is mainly centered around
 Yuka Takeuchi`s story and her trial through the Variable Geo tournament. She
 has to fight her way through each of the other V.G. combatants (divided into
 "Chapters") to open up more about the story, the characters, and eventually
 meet up against the reigning champion Reimi Jyahana.

 Story Mode consists of ten Chapters:
  - Chapter 1 : v. Jun Kubota
                "Tsudoe! Saikyou no Megami no na no Shimoni"
                ("Assemble! Under the name of the Strongest Goddess")

  - Chapter 2 : v. Manami Kusunoki
                "Neko Rocket Punch no Himitsu"
                ("Secret of the Neko Rocket Punch")

  - Chapter 3 : v. Ayako Yuuki
                "Gekiha Rave Dancer"
                ("Crushing Rave Dancer")

  - Chapter 4 : v. Satomi Yajima
                "Taiketsu! Honoo no Rival"
                ("Showdown! A Blazing Rival")

  - Chapter 5 : v. Eleanor 'Elirin' Goldsmith
                "Arashi o Yobu Elirin! Osaka Kenka Battle"
                ("Elirin who Invokes a Storm! The Osaka Brawl Battle")

  - Chapter 6 : v. Chiho Masuda
                "Utsukushiki Kunoichi no Himitsu"
                ("Secret of the Beautiful Female Ninja")

  - Chapter 7 : v. Yuka Takeuchi (clone/cyborg)
                "Yuka Zettaizetsumei! 15 Nenme no Fukushuu"
                ("Yuka Driven into a Corner! The 15th Year Revenge")

  - Chapter 8 : v. Kaori Yanase
                "Tokenai Houteishiki"
                ("An Equation that can`t be Solved")

  - Chapter 9 : v. Reimi Jyahana
                "Tsukiyo ni Mau wa Akai Bara"
                ("The Red Rose Dances in the Moonlit Night")

  - Final     : v. K-1 & K-2
                "Shouri wa Tagatame ni"
                ("For Whose Sake is this Victory")

 Additional Notes about the Chapters:
  * All opponents must be defeated in 2-out-of-3 rounds with 99 seconds. This
    remains the same even if changes are made in Config Mode.

  * Yuka`s fighting gloves change color after Chapter 7 from white to red.

  * The first time you meet K-2, the screen and her will be cloaked black. You
    can move and attack as normal, but you will never hit K-2. Plot-wise, Yuka
    is supposed to lose that fight. It`s supposed to demonstrate Yuka`s lack of
    focus and insight on this type of opponent, in addition to the power of the
    Hybrids. After a cut-scene you fight K-2 again in a normal fight.

  * You can exit out of Story Mode during cut-scenes by holding the Select
    button and pressing Start. Sometimes it takes a moment before the option
    pops up until there is a break in the dialogue.

  * Losing against an opponent brings up a Continue screen. You have an
    infinite amount of time to decide on whether or not you wish to continue.
    Press Circle to activate the continue as you hover on "YES," allowing you
    to start the stage over against the opponent that defeated you. Select "NO"
    to deactivate the continue and end the game.

  * Any Chapters that you have completed will be saved so that you can swiftly
    jump to it without having to start from the beginning. When you enter Story
    Mode again, all Chapters you have successfully beaten will be displayed for
    you to choose which to begin from.


[  //  3.4 - Config Mode  ]  --------------------------------------------------

 The Config Mode screen allows you to change the settings of the game. The
 modes are as follows (listed from top to bottom):

 - GAME LEVEL
   Select the difficulty of the CPU opponents from 1-8 units: 1 = jaku (weak),
   8 = kyou (strong). 4 is default.
   (Effects: Normal Mode, Vs. Mode (1P VS COM), Story Mode)

 - TIME LIMIT
   Select the amount of time for each round in seconds: 30, 60, 99, or
   Infinite. 60 is default.
   (Effects: Normal Mode, Vs. Mode)

 - MUSIC SELECT
   Select a track to listen to from the game. It seems that all the Playstation
   copies of the game have this not working right, and only offering three
   tracks. Whereas the Saturn one has all 21 tracks available. Plus the music
   does not play in my versions of the game, so I am unable to hear anything.

 - SOUND MODE
   Select the sound output: Stereo or Mono.

 - BUTTON SET
   Change the button configuration of the Punch and Kick buttons.

 - CONTROLLER CHECK
   Brings up a screen where you can check the D-pad and buttons of your
   joystick to see if they are functioning correctly. Each time you press a
   button, it lights up red on the screen and make a sound.

 When you exit Config Mode, it automatically saves the changes to your memory
 card.

===============================================================================

 A carouser who hangs out at discos. 19 years old.
 Quite popular, but it`s not understood why she loves to dance and stand out
 from the other men and women. Considerably she`s a large space case type, this
 casual behavior is part of her reputation. Ayako was bored of the tedium of
 every day and sought new excitement, so she participates in Variable Geo. Her
 fighting has rhythm that utilizes the characteristics of her light body as her
 strong point.

 3  The aerial kicks that follow the first sweeping LOW 'flare' are MID. The
    flare knocks the opponent into the air so the following kicks can connect.
  - Ayako only gets frame advantage and a chance to juggle if at least two of
    the aerial kicks connect. She gets +10 if two connect, +20 if all three.

 5  Unblockable.
  - Has a fairly large throw range; Ayako can be about a full character
    distance away from the opponent and still be able to catch.

 1  Unblockable.
 2  Unblockable.
 3  Can initiate aerial attacks on 14th frame.
 4  Once the slide hits, Chiho cancels any additional active frames.
 5  If Chiho is right next to the opponent, her arm may pass through them and
    the projectile will be thrown behind them.
 6  LP+LK throws the bomb 30コ; HP+HK throws the bomb 45コ.
  - Explodes after 14 frames. Explosion lasts 24 frames.
 7  LP causes Chiho to bounce off the opponent for 51 frames if it hits or is
    guarded; HP continues to have Chiho advance forward.
  - The FLOAT caused is very small, but since Chiho only has a 1-frame recovery
    on the HP-version, she can juggle with Standing HP or Standing HK.
 8  The patterns that the kunai fly in is always random, so their angles will
    differ each time. Because of this, the full nine hits of the Super may not
    always register. Or simply hit the opponent at different intervals, which
    can allow the opponent to guard in the middle.

 Her nickname (self-named?) is "Elirin".
 Her outward appearance is contrary, but with her growth in Naniwa (former name
 for Osaka region) from when she was very young, Eleanor`s content is like a
 natural-born Osaka person. At the time of a child, there was a complex held
 because of the color of her hair and eyes (read: being American) during junior
 high school/senior high school, which sent everyday life into a fighting
 situation. Thoroughly calm toward the time of graduation, Eleanor seems to
 have become the popular person who is loved by people in the neighborhood. 20
 years old who currently is in the middle of recruiting a sweetheart.

(  Notes  )  ------------------------------------------------------------------

 1  Unblockable.
 2  Has a set duration; mashing the punch buttons will not cause the Elirin
    Mach Punch to continue indefinitely.
  - Eleanor slides backward as the punches are connecting, and typically will
    continue to attack after the opponent is out of range and recovered.
 3  Can be performed using two different methods. There isn`t much difference
    between the methods except you can delay the input of the next attack until
    the last active frame if you use a 'qcb' command. If you just press a Kick
    button, Eleanor must complete the three attacks in sequence.
 4  覧
 5  There appears to be a collision detection glitch with this attack. If -can-
    negate projectiles, but it won`t. There`s been times during Vs. Mode play
    where I have used the Elirin Fire to cancel a projectile, but other times
    the blast goes right through the flames. In addition, whenever I used it in
    Normal Mode, it never negates a projectile. So unless you`re feeling lucky,
    don`t attempt to cancel out projectiles with it.

 7  Unblockable.
  - If you perform the command but Eleanor is too far, she will instead perform
    a Standing HP. Which is kind of odd since you`re pressing Hard Kick.

  - Jun is completely invincible once the Yoke begins all the way until its
    completion覧she has no startup or recovery frames. It is possible to buffer
    another Yoke command during her active Yoke, and press the button once she
    finishes to immediately go back into it. Virtually increasing the duration
    of her avoidance by performing them back-to-back.
  - While swaying back, Jun avoids most physical and projectile attacks. She
    can still be thrown with normal and command throws.
 6  Unblockable. Throw switches sides.
  - Has a fairly large throw range; Jun can be about a full character distance
    away from the opponent and still be able to catch.
  - During Jun`s leap, she either arcs backward or forward. It can`t be
    controlled which way she moves.

  - Unlike the Kubota Buster, Jun has to be right next to the opponent to catch

(  Notes  )  ------------------------------------------------------------------

 1  Unblockable.
  - Kaori`s throw causes a FLOAT. This allows her to juggle the opponent with
    one of her attacks: Standing Close HP, Standing HK, (double kick), or En
    Ken Fu. However this FLOAT will not work against Eleanor; she instead just
    falls to the ground.
 2  The two kicks will only combo if Kaori is right next to her opponent.
 3  If Kaori is right next to the opponent, her leg may pass through them and
    the projectile will be thrown behind them.
 4  覧
 5  覧
 6  Similar to Chun-Li`s Yousou Kyaku, Kaori can use the Shuu Geki multiple
    times while airborne by holding down on the joystick and pressing HK for
    each new kick. She will continue to do kicks as long as she can hit the
    opponent. If you manage to hit the opponent deep with the kick near their
    feet, she will "climb" them with the additional kicks.

 ** All of Kaori`s basic attacks are kicks, even her Light and Heavy Punches.

===============================================================================

 Manami doesn`t particularly know any type of martial arts, but it does not
 mean that she isn`t strong at any rate. Her method of fighting is similar to
 the quarrel of a child. In addition, she learned ballet for a small time, and
 has beautiful kicks by using this skill. While everything is chaotic, she
 doesn`t understand what to think about all of it, nevertheless she is a geeky
 fan and has an idol-like existence to her neighborhood boys` high school. 15
 years old.

 1  Unblockable.
  - Manami`s throw causes a FLOAT. This allows her to juggle the opponent with
    one of her attacks: Standing HP (corner), Standing HK, Neko Rocket Punch,
    Gorogoro Attack, or Banzai Attack. However this FLOAT will not work against
    Eleanor; she instead just falls to the ground.
 2  LP projectile lasts 27 frames (24 frames forward, 3 frames backward); HP
    projectile lasts 30 frames (22 frames forward, 8 frames backward).
  - The neko glove can hit either on its propulsion or return.

 3  If Reimi is right next to the opponent, her arm may pass through them and
    the projectile will be thrown behind them.

 5  Each version is able to hit twice. However it seems that the hitbox is a
    bit random because at times it will hit once, and other times twice. Even
    if Reimi is at the exact same distance from the opponent each time. For
    some reason it seems that it will hit twice more often if the opponent is
    under 50% life.

 5  Hold back or forward on the joystick to alter the range of Satomi`s arc.
    You can`t backtrack her arc; once Satomi starts moving in one direction,
    she is unable to be moved in the other. She can reach full-screen distance
    with either button strength. Satomi`s shadow doesn`t appear on the ground
    while she`s in flight, so you have to guess where she is. It disappears
    when she reaches her peak and doesn`t appear again until she lands.

 1  Unblockable.
 2  If Yuka is right next to the opponent, her palm thrust will hit in addition
    to the blast for two hits.
  - The frame data shows the information for if the palm thrust and the blast
    both connect, or just the blast by itself. The palm thrust knocks the
    opponent backward, to which the fireball will hit a few frames later, thus
    is why Yuka is at positive advantage.

 5  If Yuka is right next to the opponent, her arm may pass through them and
    the projectiles will be thrown behind them.
 6  If Yuka is right next to the opponent, her palm thrust will hit in addition
    to the blast for an additional hit.
  - Yuka will advance full screen distance with the Idaten Soku attack, which
    travels further than her normal version. Sometimes if at full screen, she
    will actually pass the Ki Kou Dan blast (which is thrown first) as she is
    dashing forward toward the opponent and attack them first. Thus the Ki Kou
    Dan won`t even hit as part of the combo.
 ** For the otaku out there, Yuka`s restaurant is a play on an actual Japanese
    and Hawaiian restaurant chain named Anna Miller`s. It`s basically like a
    Denny`s and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner at all times. Yuka`s outfit
    is an exact replica of the ones worn by the real waitresses.

   A great concept for an all-female fighting game, that`s for sure. The anime
   wasn`t all that great, but I won`t blame them on that. Like I can`t blame
   Capcom for that ass of a Street Fighter movie. Still I would love a new

 - Added details on Kaori`s and Manami`s throws not able to FLOAT Eleanor. Also
   toying with the idea of adding a system dissection section to further break
   down the game, but according to the number of hits this FAQ gets, I don`t
   believe that many people play this version to merit me putting in the time.

 v. 4.0 / 04 - 10 - 2014
 - Frame data added on all characters` basic attacks and special moves in full.
   This is my second attempt and installment to doing this for fighting games
   that no one will ever play seriously. I`m still relatively new to doing this
   type of work, but after researching on Shoryuken.com and some other gaming
   forums, I now have a firmer grasp on how to properly gather and distribute
   this type of information. Some of the old information concerning certain
   attacks and special moves might now be changed from the previous reversion
   due to the frame data added. This is another notch toward creating involved
   FAQs for games no one else is ever going to. Also corrected a couple of the
   titles for Story Mode that I had incorrectly translated.

 v. 2.5 / 03 - 30 - 2013
 - Corrected information on K-2`s Thunder Bolt and Reimi`s Hurricane Rose.

 v. 2.0 / 03 - 13 - 2013
 - Two years since I updated this FAQ. A great deal of both fixed and new
   information added with all the characters.

 v. 1.0 / 03 - 11 - 2011
 - Additional information added to Ayako, Kaori, and Reimi. Also found that you
   can skip the speech at the end of the fight as well.

 v. 0.5 / 02 - 24 - 2011
 - A correction on Satomi`s Shinkuu Karatakewari notes. Also added a method of
   skipping character intro dialogue.

 v. 0.0 / 02 - 24 - 2011
 - There`s already a good AVG FAQ out there made by OLLIVER, but it`s missing a
   lot of information and character special moves. And I doubt the person is
   going to update it again since the last revision was 2002. Plus that FAQ is
   for the Saturn version which is slightly different than the Playstation one.
   So I just decided to make my own general FAQ in addition to a ComboFAQ to
   coincide with it. Most of the information is present in this version.


[  //  6.6 - Final Word  ]  ---------------------------------------------------

 Oss`!
 After I made the `Advanced V.G. 2エ MaxFAQ, I decided to go back and do one for
 the original Playstation version as well. I had both and I wasn`t very busy,
 so I might as well get it out the way. This one is thorough, but still not as
 as involved and detailed as the AVG2 FAQ. However it still contains a great
 amount of important information for both casual and high-level players who are
 anyone interested in playing this title.

   Have something to say about the game or this FAQ you want me or others to
   know? Find any of the above information wrong or misleading? Or maybe you
   have info or extras to add onto what`s posted. Whatever the case is, feel
   free to send it! Anything that is posted within the FAQ, you not only get
   full credit. Oh no no! You also receive unauthorized bragging rights that
   give you the Almighty-given gift of annoying the hell out of people with.
                                          .. By the way, thanks for reading!

   Sayounara, adios, ciao, xie xie, au revoir, and all that other crap.  ^_^
