but anything else is wrong. PLEASE DO NOT cut portions of this faq and put
it in your faq!! Write your own faq and if you really want to use portion
of my faq at least give me credit. I spent countless hours trying to find
out the infinites myself, and it really sucks to find out someone else
using your work. Please e-mail me for more enquires. Thanks.
Comments and other info are greatly appreciated.

1) Intro

        Hi all! I'm back in the infinite combo business again! Fans of X-men
Vs Street Fighter might remember the infinite combo faq I wrote a while back.
After trying my hand on KOF97 (for the PS) I've found some info on the
infinite combos, and here I am again finding myself writing this faq.......

        Well, I must stress again that I personally don't recommend doing
these combos unless you're playing against the computer. I do these combos
for the sake of playing, not winning. The infinite combos take skill to
accomplish, so see it as a skill, not as a cheap form of winning. Last
warning: Do not use these combos in arcades against somebody you don't know!
It could prove dangerous to your health. Okay now...enuff with the talk.....
Ikuze! Let's go!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2) Characters with ICs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2.1 Kyo Kusanagi

        His infinite combo is a wee bit on the hard side. Have your opponet
in the corner. Do Kyo's modify 75 kick (QCF + D) with the 2 hits connecting.
This should send the opp. quite high into the air. Now here comes the hard
part. QUICKLY buffer a crouching A into another QCF + D. This must be done
fast. You should only see a frame of the crouching A before his kick is
registered. On the PS controller you have to press the buttons very fast. I
personally use a technique which I call the Slider Technique (hee), in which
you use your thumb to quicky slide across the A and D buttons. Sure you'll
get a sore thumb, but hey....that's the price you gotta pay.

        The maximum hits I've done with this IC is 10 hits. I've done it
about 4 to 5 times only, and the strange thing is that the opponent doesn't
dizzy after the ten hits, which meant that it's possible to score higher
than 10 hits.....can anyone confirm this?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.2 Terry Bogard

        Easier than Kyo's but it will still test your speed. This IC can be
done anywhere on the screen. Connect your Power Charge (HCF + B). And as
Kyo's, buffer a crouching A into another Power Charge immediately. Only 1
frame of the crouching A should be seen. Try using the Slider Technique if
you're using the PS controller. You should buffer the A, and not do the A,
and then do the Power Charge. You will likely wiff it as it is too slow.
Do the Power Charge motion swiftly, and as the direction reaches down, key
A, and when it reaches forward, press B. Terry should then do a very short
crouching A follwed by a fast Power Charge, which should juggle the opponent.
Keep practicing! The maximum hits I've got here is 7 hits, which dizzies.

        Here's another infinite juggle (or at least till the victim is dizzy)
. Power up Terry (press ABC together). In the corner, do a Power Charge to
"launch" the opponent into the air. Now, do his Crack Shoot (QCB + B). It
will hit the opponent, and you will have time to land and do another Crack
shoot. You can do this till either the opponent is dizzy or your meter runs
out. Have fun and knock yourself out.....

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.3 Joe Higashi

        Hmm....I dunno whether this is called an IC, but whatever....once you
have connected Joe's Golden Heel move (QCB + B) in the corner, you can keep
doing it till the opponent is dizzy. You get get more than 10 hits this way.
The difficult part of this move is to actually start it off....how many times
in a match can you catch a opponent in the corner jumping long enough for
you to do the Golden Heel? This move in my opinion is quite useless, so don't
count on it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.4 King

        OK! I admit I haven't done this so called infinity combo before. I've
seen it written in several faqs but I just can't do it myself....maybe you
guys can help me.....Anyway, here it goes... In the corner, connect a full
Suprise Rose (QCF + A) with the opponent. The opponent should still be in the
air when you land. And as usual, buffer a crouching A into another Suprise
Rose (you noticing a pattern here?). And AS usual, you must do this very
quickly. If anyone has any corrections or anything to add please e-mail me.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.5 Yamazaki

        This is another IC which I have not tried out personally....my fwend
says he can do it, though it is quite difficult. Do try it out if you use
Yama....here it goes....do a standing B, followed by a Sand Kick(QCF + B),
a Snake Tamer,then a Snake Fake, and back to another Sand kick. Seems harder
than the rest of the other infinites...Since I haven't tried it out I can't
give any tips for the moment, so check back in another version update.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

3) Help!

        I need help on many of the combos! I've certain I've missed out some
of the infinites. So if you do know anymore E-mail me! thanks!! The address
to send to is psyke@pacific.net.sg.

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

4) Rumoured Infinites/Unconfirmed Infinites

        Some rumoured or unconfirmed infinites from the net include:

1) Iori's QCB + A, QCB + A, wiff a crouching A and back to QCB + A. Tried it
   out but failed. Not too sure about which punch to use either? It'll be
   so cool if my fave character (besides Kyo) has a infinite.

2) Kim's HCB + kick. Read somewhere that this can be turned into a infinite
   juggle.

3) Choi's flying thingy was said to be able trap someone to death.

4) Blue Mary may have a infinite.

5) Athena has a infinite.

        Well, I'm not sure about these but I'll keep you updated when more
information arrives. I'll check out the arcades to find out more as well :)
