                               Bahn.FAQ V.2 
                               By Takeshi Morozumi
    I am still a beginner with FV and this FAQ is not deep at all. This FAQ 
    is for Bahn beginner. I will add more moves and comments about each
    moves as I learn about this game more. 
    I decided to write this FAQ because I think that Fighting Vipers is a
    great video game. FV is very popular in Japan and in fact, FV is the
    second most popular game in Japan next to VF2.1. Therefore, I want the  
    people here in US to understand the depth of this game also. I am not
    saying that "This game is popular in Japan so you have play it!!!" but I
    believe that FV should get much more attentions.

    WHAT'S NEW??????
    I corrected some typo. I added my translation of the Bahn's stratedy in
    Gamest Mook. 
    I got no response for the version 1 of this FAQ. I think that's because
    the FAQ wasn't so interesting to the people. Maybe, you guys know all
    the stuff already. I added the fighting strategy so I hope more people
    will like this FAQ.

    /*** STRATEGY ***/(translation from the Gamest Mook)
    Bahn doesn't have many combinations but most of his attacks are
    powerful. Therefore, it's better to have some distance from the opponent
    and use super straight and hand sweep which are powerful armor breakers.
    Let's talk about the short distance strategy first. If the opponent did
    the combinations, you can counter them with guard and attack. If they
    started with P or d+P, you can stop their attacks with d+P and the
    elbow(f+P). When you stop the combination with d+P, you should use the
    elbow or the upper(f/d+P) which are quick mid-level attacks. Or you can
    use the hand sweep(b/d,F/D+P) or throw. However, the opponents can stop
    these attacks doing d+P. If the opponents used the d+P, do the spirit
    elbow(b,f+P). This move avoids getting hit by d+P by a back step and you
    can hit them after that. 
    If the elbow hit, and the opponents didn't do ukemi(P+K+G), you can
    pounce the opponents on the ground. If the opponents did ukemi, you can
    hit them with the super straight. However, the opponents can kick you
    after ukemi. In this case, step back and throw them after they reached
    the ground.
    If the upper(f/d+P) hit the opponents, and they did ukemi + kick, you
    can step back and when they reached the ground, you can throw them.
    Otherwise, you can hit them with the upper again. If they didn't do ukemi 
    and they hit the ground, you can pounce them.
    If the hand sweep hit them, you can pounce them.
    For the mid-distance strategy, you do a lot of super straight. Even if
    they guarded it, they can't counter it. Also, they can't do guard and
    attack. If the super straight hit them, run to toward them. If the
    opponets didn't do ukemi, pounce them. If they didn't do ukemi, hit them
    with the dash attacks. However, they can stop your dash attacks with
    jumping kicks(U+k). If you could react to it, press the joystick to the
    opposit direction(b) and stop. Blocked the jumping kick and throw them.
