Hey btw I wanted to chime in on something that was discussed a few pages ago.

I can honestly say that I'm one of those players who just isn't good enough to fully do HD combos so it sort of pisses me off when I do an accidental activation of HD mode. However, it does seem that so far, HD move is pretty much only relegated to those insane combos and props for people who do them.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing if someone out there is experimenting enough to see if there is more to the HD bar than just HD combos. And what I mean by that is someone who pretty much doesn't do HD stuff and uses those bars to make their defensive or offensive games better through good bar usage.

From one noob to another: HP, (tiny delay), LK+HP (go HD with a free hit), special, cancel into super, cancel into newmax. Presto, a HD combo ;)
KoF XIII... Needs more Angel, Vanessa and Blue Mary! ^^

I love RBFF2 because of Xiangfei

If you really love Xiangfei as much as you say, you wouldn't use that god-awful pic of her from KOF 2001.

Just saying.

even though I hated KOF2001
the Xiangfei version there is almost the same as in KOF02um  (I ve tried that lately in the arcades)
I was wishing to see her on kOFXIII or the next one
when i heard that rumor of her being added as DLC i was so excited

A buddy of mine won't play any kof unless xiangfei is in it.

The hilarious thing is that he plays relatively seriously if she's in the game.

Heheh, he is currently studying and out of action, I expect him to come out of hiding if/when she's released in an upcoming title (doesn't have to be KOF)

Knowing this guy he'd buy a new stick with the next 'Xiangfei release' ;)

On the same note, hoping to see more talented players pick up chrs who don't see many outings in competative XIII (like some of the Mai action we've been privy to lately). All it takes is one person's success to shine the light on a lesser used chr. We all like beastings when through an unexpected chr.

I found this to be the most novel use of HD outside of raw combos that I've come across. I also use HD often to guard break.

Although very few including myself would recommend it due to the cost, you can use HD to make your specials safe if you HDC with a super that is safe on block since you can't HDC into another special on block.

If you're leaning towards staying away from HD mode, there's always good material on the 50% thread for maximum dmg outside of HD.

If longer HD combos are proving difficult you can also go the shortest route with a great deal of ease on the execution side by going normal > cmd normal > HD bypass special > HDC super > HDC neomax for a healthy chunk of dmg.

This is better than you think depending on the character.

For example with Ryo:
j.D, s.D, f.B, [HDB]hcb+BCD, dp+C, [HDC]qcf~hcb+C, [MC]qcfx2+AC = 865 (anywhere at 4 stock)

Iori:
j.C, s.C, df.C, [HDB]dp+BC, qcf~hcb+P, [MC]qcfx2+BD = 823 (near corner 3 stock)

Are you talking about Xiangfei's gameplay or her art? Because I was talking about the artwork of her in 2001.

It's mega horrible, but then again, so is just about everyone's artwork.

The only one they put effort on seems to be May Lee.

Pfft, Nona is awesome and so is 2001's art, so full of character.

And by character, do you mean that they all look mentally retarded?

Eh, at least Nona's artwork is better than Falcoon's. Take a look at both of their Mai art, there's no comparison.

I'm talking about then, not now. Nona's art has come a long way, like Shinkiro did. That doesn't excuse his terrible art in 2k1. Also, Falcoon is actually pretty decent, it's his wacky alternate designs that completely blow.
