Ranma 1/2, Part 2 (SFC)
Ranma 1/2 (SNES)

****  Important Note -  The following is for both the
SFC Ranma 1/2, Part 2 and also the SNES Ranma 1/2 ****

Configuration Code
1.   On Continue Screen
2.   Press and Hold R X and A
3.   Continue Holding until next match begins
4.   Configuration Screen will appear
The characters in this game, clockwise from the top of the selection screen,
are:
     Ranma-kun (male)
     Ranma-chan (female)
     Akane
     Shampoo
     Mousse
     Ukyou
     Panda (Genma, Ranma's father)
     Gosunkugi
     Gambler King
     Ryouga
In Duel mode, you can also choose Pansuto Tarou (human or minotaur form).
Normally, you have to win a game (at any difficulty level) against the
computer in order to use Tarou in the Scenario mode.

  By default, Y is your Light attack button, B is your Heavy attack button.

  Using Heavy Attacks and Charging a move at the same time -- if you define
  more than one button as your Heavy attack, you can hold one of them down
  to charge, and use the other to attack with.

  Better throw damage -- most characters do more damage if they throw their
  opponent over their heads.  (If your opponent is on your right, throw them
  to your left.)  Gosunkugi and Happosai are the exceptions -- they do more
  damage with the Heavy attack button, regardless which direction they throw.

  Reducing throw damage (this is documented) if you hit the attack buttons
  with the right timing after being thrown, you will land on your feet and
  take about half normal damage from the throw.  If you can describe exactly
  when to hit the button, let me know.

  Ranma-kun, Ranma-chan, and Shampoo can double-jump -- when at the peak of
  their jump, hit X a second time for more height.  Shampoo can steer herself
  anywhere on the screen if you use this.  Ranma-chan just comes down really
  fast.  (Happosai can double-jump too, actually.)

  Moves List:  Here's a description of all of the special moves (other than
  throws and "normal" moves that just involve hitting a button at the right
  distance).  'CHARGE' means to hold down a Heavy attack button for a second
  or two, then release it and point in the direction given.  (CHARGE, then
  DOWN, means to hold it for a few seconds, then push DOWN on the direction
  pad and release the Heavy attack button.)

RANMA (both)
------------
KAITEN KICK         CHARGE, then DOWN.
               (A rolling kick, longer range with higher CHARGE)
               (As Ranma-chan, this is a rolling elbow move instead)

FUMITSUKE      Jump towards your opponent, then press DOWN and B.
               (A head-stomp move)

HIRYUU SHOUTENHA    Press Y and B at the same time.
               (Hurricane Punch, a little like a dragon punch)

MOUKO TAKABISHA          CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY from your opponent.
               It goes towards them either way.
               (An explosion of blue [or yellow, if Ranma-chan]
               energy appears directly in front of you.  Longer
               CHARGE time = bigger explosion)

KACHUU TENSHIN AMAGURIKEN     Press Y or B rapidly.
               (A fast-hands move, like E. Honda's 100-hands punch
               in SF2)

------

KASA TSUKI          TOWARDS and B.
               (Pokes an umbrella at your opponent)

TOBI KASA TSUKI          JUMP TOWARDS, then press DOWN and B.
               (Comes down on their heads with your umbrella)

SHISHI HOUKOUDAN    Y and B at the same time.
               (An explosion of energy appears before you, like
               a full-strength version of Ranma's MOUKO TAKABISHA
               move.)

BAKUSAI TENKETSU    CHARGE, then DOWN.
               (The 'exploding point' technique.  Rocks roll along
               the ground at your opponent, CHARGE=Range)

BANDANA NAGE        CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY.
               (Throws bandannas at your opponent.  CHARGE=Number.)

               (Head stomp)

RYOUGA RETSUSHOU KYAKU   Y and B at the same time.
               (Leaps into the air feet-first, to the top of the
               screen, then comes back down.)

MOUGEKI TOTSUJINHA  CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY.
               (Rushes at your opponent with Chinese maces.
               CHARGE=Distance)

NIDAN MAWASHI GERI  TOWARDS opponent and B.
               (Two high kicks)

SHOUMAKUUHAKEN      Y and B at the same time.
               (A leaping uppercut.  A Dragon Punch, plain and
               simple.  She's not invulnerable in it, though.)

SHIPPU BAKURETSUKEN CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY.
               (Rushes at your opponent with fist out.  CHARGE
               affects distance.)

PANDA (GENMA)
-----

CHICHI NO IKARI
(OSHIOKIHEN)        Y and B at the same time, from throw range.
               (Genma bounces on his opponent.  Nearly half a bar of
               damage!)

CHICHI NO IKARI
(TAIBATSUHEN)       CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY.
               (A rush-at.  CHARGE=Distance.)

PANDA HYAKURETSUKEN Y or B, quickly and repeatedly.
               (A "100-hands" move, like Ranma's TENSHIN AMAGURIKEN.
               Seems more effective with B.)

GOSUNKUGI

DAIKAITEN WARANINGYOU    Y and B at the same time.
               (Spins around twice with a large voodoo doll in his
               hands.)

WARANINGYOU NAGE    CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY.
               (Looks just like DAIKAITEN WARANINGYOU, but he throws
               the doll afterwards.)

UKYOU
-----

KONJOU GIRI         B and TOWARDS.
               (Looks just like B, to me.  A long-range swing with
               her big spatula.)

TENKASU KANSHAKUDAMA MIKKSU
               CHARGE, then DOWN.
               (Throws some exploding mix at the opponent.)

               the arm of his robe.)

TAKATSUMEKEN        JUMP, then DOWN and B.
               (Comes down from his jump with claws extended from
               his feet, which can hit the opponent.)

GAMBLER KING
------------

TEN BOW             CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY.
               (Fires something at the opponent from a bow.)

JOKER SHOWER        JUMP AWAY, then DOWN and B.
               (Throws some cards diagonally down, forward.  Only
               useful if the opponent is close or chasing you.)

PANSUTO TAROU (HUMAN)
-------------

SUKASHIKI KIKKU          JUMP, then DOWN and B.
               (A head-stomp)

SENPORAKU      B and TOWARDS.
               (Swings some pantyhose at his opponent.  That's
               what the 'PANSUTO' in his name means.)

IPPATSU GYAKUTEN OTOKOGERI
               Y and B at the same time.
               (Leaps at the opponent, feet first, but with his
               leading foot on fire.)

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

MOUGYUU TOTSUSHIN   CHARGE, then TOWARDS or AWAY.
               (Charges at his opponent.  CHARGE=Distance)

JET ATTACK          JUMP, then DOWN and B.
               (Comes down at his opponent, diagonally, from his
               jump... with his fist outstretched.)

  Debug Mode -
  Pick any two characters.  When you reach the screen that asks you to pick
  a background to fight on, press the R, X, and A keys, simultaneously, on
  controller one.  Hold them.  A menu screen should come up in a few seconds.
  You are now in DEBUG mode.  Enjoy.  (You can play Happosai from here.
  He has two CHARGE moves.  One is DOWN (Happodaikarin, he throws
  firecrackers), the other is TOWARDS/AWAY, where he shoots a blue fireball.
  He also has a Y+B move that makes him grow large for a few seconds.)

  Fighting vs the Computer in DUEL and TEAM modes -
  If you hold down the L and R buttons on the Character Selection screen,
  you can move the other player's character-selection box.  Hitting the Y
  button with the L and R buttons held down will select the character for
  your opponent, but it will be controlled by the computer, at whatever
  difficulty level you currently have the game set to.

The next two are ones that I posted to the net before, but don't remember
"for sure" at the moment, so I'll mark them as unverified until I'm sure
they are correct here.  If these are wrong, try reversing the direction of
the circle on the directional keypad. (go UP, LEFT, DOWN, RIGHT, UP instead
of what I have here)  You may need to do these after hitting START at the
title screen.  (So you have the 'scenario/duel/team/option' menu visible.)

  Playing as Pansuto Tarou without winning a Scenario Mode game first -
  UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT, UP, X, SELECT, from the title screen.  You should
  hear Ranma-kun yell out.  Now Tarou will be an option in Scenario Mode.

  Looking at the visuals without playing the game -
  Reverse the code for playing as Pansuto Tarou.  (SELECT, X, UP, LEFT....)
  Again, do this at the title screen.  If you do it right, the final UP will
  bring a line of text onto the screen that has the name of a character
  followed by OP or ED.  OP is their Opening animation, and ED is their
  EnDing animation (when they win the game).  There's another, but I don't
  remember what the game calls it at the moment.
