I would posted this in the Vanessa thread or something, but it mostly regards the PS2 version of the game as well...
Its not like me to ask for help, but i've been thinking about getting into KOF2k2, however. I only own the game on the PS2 (KOF02/03).
I was wondering if any of the BC Combos were possible in the PS2 version? Cause well, to put it simply, I can play the game... I just dont know how to do BC Cancel Combos with certain characters. For example, Kyo is easy.
But when I try to start up Vanessa's BC Cancel combo it seems near impossible. These are the following obstacles blocking me w/ Vanessa:
I've read alot of combos for Vanessa, and i've attempted them, they all usually start up on standing C (close), BC (Activate), Standing C > f+A, etc. etc. But the truth is when I activate BC after close range C, Vanessa gets pushed back a good distance, causing me to miss the 2nd Standing C.
I found a couple of solutions to this... First attack I do is Standing D(Close) instead of C, it allows me to connect Standing C after BC activation if I do it immediately after BC Cancel. The other solution is Standing C, BC Activate, and Standing C immediately, she does the far standing C, instead of the close range standing C and -sometimes- I can connect f+A from the far standing C...
Its wierd however, cause from the combo vids i've seen, I shouldn't be getting this problem (where Vanessa gets pushed back).
I got this going on:
s.C (Close), f+A, BC Activate, s.C (Close), f+A, hcf+C, dp+A
After that little combo, I seem to lose priority in my attacks, and nothing else connects afterwards... Can someone help me out?! I love Vanessa but I cant do her beastly combos!
The only reason why im bothering to play with Vanessa in KOF2k2 NOW is because im loving her even more in KOFXI. I play KOF2k2 once in a while but thats only when I wanna play Vanessa and Angel :/
But I love Vanessa, she's a goddess.
