THE KING OF FIGHTERS 98 - DREAM MATCH NEVER ENDS FAQ
by The Enforcer a.k.a Chen Dingming Benedict, Cheaters Corp.
Version 0.9 (4th October 1998)

INTRODUCTION
KOF has come to a standstill ever since the end of 1997. During the 4 years
of competition, the heroes have saved the world from the likes of Rugal,
Goenitz, The Orochi Clan, and Orochi himself. With the defeat of Orochi,
the KOF series appears to have ended. The Japan team had originally split up.
Evil lost. However, 38 warriors return to pit each other in this game, KOF98-
Dream Match Never Ends!

What are the moves?
What are the names of the moves?
What are the special teams?
Are there any more codes?

There are altogether 50 playable characters in KOF98 (38 playable, 12 hidden) 
and 1 extra hidden character for the Neo Geo home system. Please read on for 
further details. Could there be more?

Anyone with information can email me at 96161@acs.sch.edu.sg, so that I can
add them to the FAQ. You can also try looking me up on ICQ at UIN 12748858.
You would be given recognition for your efforts. Please quote your sources
also since I hope that my FAQ would be error free. I also invite any views,
comments or questions on the game itself.

NOTE:
This is by no means a complete FAQ as yet, since I am looking for certified
sources for the moves. There are vast amounts of moves still lacking here. I
will do my best to update this FAQ to suit the needs of the players. Please
feel free to give me any additional info that you might have. Also, please
quote your sources. I am a player and I know the skills from KOF97. However,
I shall not put in skills until they have been confirmed to prevent any
errors.

MODES OF PLAY

Advanced Mode

Emergency Escape (Forward)        AB
Body Toss                         CD
Max out meter (1 stock required)  ABC

- Damage of all skills increase 1.25 times when power bar is a maximum.
- Order of Characters in match affects the number of stocks left.
- If character is friendly towards next fighter in lineup, one stock would
  be gained when the next fighter fights. All previous stored stocks would
  remain. If character is neutral towards next fighter in lineup, then no
  stocks are gained. Previously stored stocks would remain behind when next
  character fights. If character is angry with the next fighter in lineup,
  then all remaining stocks are lost.
- Power bar is charged up by use of skills and blocking.
- SDM can be performed when all 3 stocks are maxed out.

Extra Mode

Incursion Aversion Move           AB
Body Toss                         CD

- When about 1/8 of life is life, life bar starts to flash. DM's can then
  be performed continuously without charging power bar.
- If life bar is flashing and power bar is at max, SDM's would be performed
  when the commands for DM's are used.

Roulette Team Edit

This is a new mode found within the game. On the character select screen,
there is a box with a question mark. By selecting this question mark, you
will enter the game in roulette mode. In this mode, the computer will
randomly select characters for your team after every round. This means
that you can play with different characters in your team for the entire
game!

Losing the Game

So, you are weak. You lost the game. You cannot stand continuing the game.
However, take note that if you continue after you have left off, you will
enter a jackpot game. You have twenty seconds. The machine will start
spinning. Press A to stop the machine or press C if you are no interested in
any rewards. After you stop the machine, you will be rewarded with these:

1) Computer has no Power Gauge
-  For the next match, computer cannot enter Max bar status or use DMs and
   SDMs.
2) Computer starts with 1/3 energy
-  For the next match, each member of computer's team starts with 1/3 life.
3) Difficulty Level Down
-  For the next match, the difficulty level of the computer is reduced by 1
   in accordance to the difficulty level set by operator.
4) Skip next Match
-  You automatically bypass the current match and proceed to the next team.
5) Player Power Up
-  All damage done by player is increased throughout next match.
6) Player starts with Max Power Gauge
-  Power gauge is maxed out at all times during the current match. This
   applies to all members. You are at MAX status and DM's can be done freely.

Should not stop the machine within 20 seconds, normal play will resume. You
will receive no benefits.

GAME PROGRESSION

There is basically not much of the story. It is again, more of a tournament
as in KOF94 as compared with the other KOF games. Rugal was resurrected and
he organised yet another tournament. You will first fight 6 teams in areas
such as the Middle East, Japan, Korea, USA, etc, followed by a fight with the
boss Omega Rugal in his aircraft carrier.

THE BOSS

Omega Rugal is very powerful. He is much more deadly than the normal Rugal
and himself in KOF95. Basically, these are the info I have gathered about
Omega Rugal.

- You will fight him on the aircraft carrier in Blacknoah, as in KOF94.
- Only skill retained as seen was the Dark Crystal Reflector.
- Reppuken replaced by an electric crystal ball, which counters most
  projectiles.
- Kaiser Wave replaced by large electric crystal ball, which counters most
  projectiles.
- Genocide cutter becomes deadlier. It is the normal Genocide cutter plus a
  heavy upwards strike kick.
- Has a strange "teleport" attack in which he disappears, suddenly hits you 6
  times, and then appears right behind you.
- A DM which starts with an array of punches, followed up by a genocide
  cutter kick.

Defeating him takes careful precision since he is powerful. The easiest way
to win him would be of course to continue the game and hope to get "Skip next
match", "Computer has 1/3 energy" or "Player starts with max power gauge".

BUGS

So far, only one bug has been reported, and this has been tested on Heidern
and Athena. Whether this will work for other players is still a mystery.
First, shoot a projectile, and then immediately input a command throw. As it
is too far for the throw to work, it will fail. However, your projectile
becomes an unblockable skill! How about that? Does it work for others? You
can email me if you find out more.

HIDDEN CHALLENGERS

Shingo Yabuki
To fight Shingo Yabuki in team vs mode, you must fulfill one of these 3
conditions:
1) After you KO the computer at any 3rd round, your points must be 100000 or
   above.
2) At the 4th match, KO the computer with PERFECT life and your points must
   be 100000 or above.
3) Defeat the computer with STRAIGHT (all members surviving) at every match
   until the fifth match.
Shingo with then appear later to challenge you.

ENDINGS

Omega Rugal is defeated. He activates the self-destruct mechanism inside his
aircraft carrier. It explodes and then goes up in flames. A helicopter then
appears. Soon, you will see the USA sports team walking away from the scene.
You will then see the other different teams doing various stuff. It then ends
with a picture of the team you are using (only for proper teams). Some lame
ending without any story or conversation.
