I would love to play with all of you if weren't because there is no fucking chance of play a match with such a long distance (I'm from Chile)

Oh well, I only had one friend which I could play, but still, I had ton of fun with him, good matches

krazykone, I'm trying to use a Mas Stick that I bought close to 4 or 5 years ago. It comes up as a Mad Catz GamePad, which I can't seem to get the drivers to work with.

Judge Fudge, I actually got a Windows partition installed on my Mac by a local comp store for $90. And yeah, add me on Xbox Live cause I would like to see how the matches would be with us being not that far away.

Shoryuken Wiki still doesn't had information for a lot of characters, it seems like this game isn't very played here : (

Why would it be when the majority of that site is devoted to Street Fighter? I'm actually surprised that they haven't just made it a SF only site considering how many dedicated and up tp date sites there are from games like Tekken, KOF and BB.

I was thinking the same, but actually, there are some characters writeups from a lot of characters which I suppose were written by some KOF fan, but suddenly stopped, I always asked who writed them

CX 2.0 had a pretty decent thread for most characters before the forums were wiped. :(

I don't mind doing writeups like I'm doing for the 2k2UM chars but people need to request what they want. I had a quick look at the SRK wiki and it's a very good effort but it's missing a few things here and there like quick max/quick dodge combos and some of the info is wrong. It's also annoying to read 'cause it uses move names instead of motions when talking about stuff... -_-

I also wouldn't mind doing writeups for a few characters, although I don't really have all the time in the world and there are other people who know way more that I do.

Would you like a Wiki set up for 98UM? If you're willing to fill it in, I'll set it up and give you the necessary access. PM me and let me know.

Yep is very annoying that the combos are listed with the moves names and that they hadn't posted yet max cancel combos

Also, I'm still wating for a Eiji Writeup : (

I'm glad that finally we're getting information from 98UM, It was kinda sad that here people only talked about 2002um and XIII, with this great game being totally ignored

Agreed.  98/UM is my fav KOF.  Nice to see it isn't totally dead.

I agree with that 100%. I was thinking maybe people here didn't play it or something....

There is a bunch of good tutorial videos on youtube by Dark Geese featuring Qmax combos and other good techniques, so hopefully those will be added here too....

I think most players here play KoF98/UM. Part of the reasoning behind this site was to unite the fanbase behind the most recent King of Fighters. The fractured nature of the KoF community is one of the reasons KoF is not as popular as Street Fighter. SF players play the newest game whereas the KoF players tend to play one of 3 or 4 games (the latest version, 98/UM, 2002/UM or XI.)

98UM and 2002UM are neck-and-neck for my favorite KoF games.

I don't know, when SNKP releases 2002UM on the XBLA, I will still be playing 98um both games are so different and good at thei own that I can't decide for one just to ignore the other, and almost all my friends here do the same.
