"samurai showdown 0 boss characters" , posted Mon 29 Dec 08:00:post reply


does anyone know how to access the dip switches, or how to access the boss characters? i just bought the home version (aes?), havent actually played it as my neo geo is still packed away, but i remember one of the developers saying something like he really loved yumeji or something like that. i was just wondering if it is possible to play her.

I've been experimenting for ages, and I still haven't found any way to use them easily. The traditional dip 3 or dips 2 and 6 don't work; you can cycle through all the character data, but that's a real pain in the ass to do, and the game crashes half of the time when you do that..

It's not like I understood anything about this dip switches things, but does a combination of 6 numbers + two others may be a way to code that, or it has nothing to do with it and I can keep my mouth shut?
What does a dip switch code looks like?

Even when you access them with a cheat via an emulator... it only lets you use them for one fight before the game freezes up. Maybe SNKP didn't want them playable... but hopefully they'll be playable in the PS2 port.

It's kind of complicated, Iggy; if you have the bios installed, you can access the soft dips, which are two lines of 8 "switches", a "0" being the off position and a "1" being "on" (binary!)... I'll do some screen shots to illustrate some time, you can access all kinds of crazy things with them (like a Choi "screen saver" in KOF '99, it's hilarious..)

Edit: Oh, yes, I made a better set of Magician Lord vids... no deaths in stage 6 or 7 anymore, and no senseless bumping in to a ghoul in stage 1. I'll start replacing the old ones soon. Also, a bunch of vids of random and strange games are likely coming up... boredom is hitting hard!

She appeared to me in a demo fight. Does that mean something? (guess not... )

Oh, and I also love her. One question for you Japanese speaking people (Rugal, Iggy...): Does she have anything to do with Ukyo? I mean, in his intro this girl appears with the same hairstyle as Yumeji, she fights and dresses in a very similar way as him and, unlike all the other characters, when she does Ukyo's attack (the "apple throwing") she doesn't change her form, so I guess it's an attack of her own.
Thanksalot.

EDIT: I've checked Saiki's FAQ (Gotta re-read it some of these days) about her. It's all clear now, except for those dialogues (-snif- ) and the reason why is she able to imitate other fighters' techniques.





"Kensu" & "Asina" such a nice couple.

She appears everytime before Sankur˘.
She also is Uky˘'s master's daughter, so she uses the same iaigiri (and the sasameyuki) as Uky˘.
AND (important) it's still unclear if she's a "SHE". I think it's obvious, but everything is written in a way you can't tell if it's a "he" or a "she", and her scenario is weird (there's something about Yumeji's body and her father beeing really angry about it)

No, no, I know she appears everytime before him, but I meant that she appeared in one of those demo fights after the title screen, you know, where it says "Insert coin" or "Push start Button". In... euh... Hattori's and Basara's stage I think.

Oh!
It's a bug... (tohoho)... She appear there instead of Suija (which is a problem for a hidden half boss). (so many rumors wether she was or not playable).

No, no, it's not about the sex change, lemme look it in the dictionary, now that it's not 1:00 with everybody's sleeping
*Goes search for the dictionary*
euh... an 'impostor' in English, it's the same word after all o_O.

You know, some person who takes the place of some other and pretends to be him/her.
Now?

Aaah!!!! yes, in french it's the same word, "imposteur", I was so focused on the sex problem I didn't think about it.
I think there's nothing that could say she is (I decided she's a "she" until I'm proven wrong), she's officially Ga˘'s helper and that's it. Her morphing abilities are... unexplained, and nobody seems to find them weird. If it wasn't for Rasetsumaru's ending, I would think it's just "this character is too weak to be the midboss, let's beef her up!"

If you're looking for synonyms, doppelganger (direct German rip, but used heavily in English) or changeling would also be quite useful). Especially changeling - that's often used in myths to describe a demon that replaces a human baby.

Oh. Really. I can hardly believe it. Iggy overly focused on sex. Please excuse me while I faint from the shock.

Hmm... if Gao's supposed to look like Nobunaga, mayhaps Yumeji's supposed to look like Ranmaru? If so, that would probably settle the gender issue.

If Kusaregedo isn't found especially weird, I don't know who would be.

Yumeji is obviously a she, or he does a heck of a lot better work than Poison changing his voice. Besides, the sprite is edited to have more boobage.

I think the story is that her father wanted her to be male, to be his heir or something, but since she wasn't, she tried to be as masculine as possible to make up for it. That's just my speculation though, guess I'd better reread the latest FAQ...

"OT note for Iggy" , posted Thu 1 Jan 05:06post reply


You always keep saying Yoshitora is overpowered, right?
Well then, I believe you're completely wrong and that he's just a normal character like any other. The fact that my 8 year old sister, who plays only by mashing the buttons, got to the 3rd and even the 4th stage once playing with him proves nothing.

haven't heard of a legit method yet...you need to have the debug bios, sorry.

for those who do have it, turn on dip 1-6, then during a round (not prior to the fight, but in the middle of a round), hold A and press D repeatedly. You can cycle through all characters but the new ones (Enja, Kusaregedo, Rasetsumaru, etc.), and Gaoh (though Sankuro and Yumeji are playable using this method).
