    Does hoku (little monkey ninja), have that missed special animation, in the 360 version?
    and can anyone link me to some glitches in the game, so i can mess around a bit. thx.

    Which animation are you talking about ? There is at least 4 of them...

    For glitches, there's the Kain/Freeman one

    But if you play on 360, you can find lots of them that aren't even on the original game... :D

    Hahaha thanks timmy.
    the animation i was thinking of, had something to do with a light kick xx into his throwing star move, i think if you missed, he would make a angry face.

    Ok i got it, it's when you do his targets:
    B, D / A, C or cr B, cr D / cr A, cr C

    and follow them with another heavy move instead of cancelling with a special/super

    For example; you do B, D, C and Hoku will hold his head in his hands. If you do cr A, cr C, C his head will pop in his shoulders.

    I think they still work on the 360 version.

    Freeman's c.B is good. Really good. In fact CPU on max difficulty can't do much about it. Unless it is Marco. Can someone commentate on Freeman - Marco match-up please?

    Haha well that's Haggar... :)

    On Freeman's side, the matchup against Marco is about being the one that attacks because both of them don't have a good defense game imo. That's more blatant with Freeman but if Marco can't consistently use his dragon punch as a guard cancel, he's pretty open too (since the dpunch has no invicibility frames).
    You have to knock him down everytime you can, go for pressing, find the opening and knock him down again, etc. Once in the corner he will be even more vulnerable to those pressings.

    General tips for the matchup against Marco:
    - beware of small jumps B and jump crossup D, both leading to high damage.
    - beware of his rushdowns with lights like close A, st A linked to fireball or feint cancel dash in and repeat
    - work on your justdefend/guardcancel skills to ruin the fireball zoning/traps
    - his overhead f+A is the best in the game, starts pretty fast and can be linked to anything
    - some Marco players use shenanigans with alternate A/C dragon punch breaks. Just remember that you can throw or punish a close range C dragon punch break

    So........... i play on the ps2 import version, via magic swaps, does progressive scan mode actually help the lag from my hdtv?
    Also just a quick poll:

    2) Sanwa & Sanwa
    3) Crappy american Cabinet w/ broken buttons

    no matter how many new games comes out. It seems i can never drop this game....dammit its near perfect what a fighting game should be.

    I literally play with low tiers and feel no disadvantage. I don't feel anything really broken and most advance stuff can't be abuse.

    You know, I was messing around with the PS2 version of Garou awhile ago, and I couldn't for my life do corner throw > p-power qcf, qcf+k super with Kain. I hit that shit every time in the arcade version, is this like a bug or something?

    Hi guys, I know we didnt do much announcement on this thread, mainly because the most concerned knew it already, and because the US community is pretty far from France, but during this year's Stunfest , which is one of the biggest fighting games tournament in Europe, we (the WeReWolves crew, follow us and other garou moderators on twitter @castofthewolves ) are running a Garou Tournament and we have invited Wata (best player), Tsubo (best Grant currently) and Kento (best Kain in activity with Charles's Wain) to participate and meet with the french community.

    The 3 players have arrived today and will stay in France for 2 weeks, be sure we will record tons of videos and pictures of the event.

    Cheers to all Garou players all over the world !!

    PS: here's the tournament announcement in english http://www.arcade-extreme.com/forum/showthread.php?2212-Arcade-garou-motw-tournament-stunfest-2012-(france)&p=100737#post100737

    nah that works fine on ps2, your timing is just off a bit i guess.

    Arcade layout is the square one, I know most players use this one since it's also KOF's

    It's a preference really. Similar to the button layouts used in KOFXIII. It's either

    AC
    BD

    or

    BCD
    A

    That's mainly for arcade layouts but on console you'll probably see more variations depending on a players preference.

    Ah, thanks, guys. If square is how they play at the arcade then that's just sort of what I want go for. Been playing line as opposed to the block style, but then the thought struck me. It's just so that if I happen across a cabinet, I want to have been playing based on that layout.

    I've got more things to do than worry about layout though, like continuing to practice. Thanks again, Garou is a very fun game. Very different and awesome.

    While I've never actually seen a Garou arcade, the old style Neo Geo cabinets were arranged like

    _BCD
    A

    I believe only the newer cabinets gave you a choice of the other arrangement since KoF is typically set up on standardized cabinets with a six-button layout. Is that also what Garou is set up on these days?
  • NocturnalNocturnal SNK Supporter Joined: Posts: 2,957Registered, Moderators
    Depends on the cab really. I know some Japanese cabs have the option to let you switch from box layout to the L layout. While others are deticated to one layout.

    Is Burn Knuckle safe at certain ranges? Had a few sets and sometimes I could punish it far, sometimes I couldn't but I'm sure the range wasn't consistent. Was using Rock at the time.

    Yes it's safe at certain ranges with Terry. Same goes for Rock's elbow.

    Who are the best zoning characters in this game? I know Kain is good, but anyone else?

    I would say Dong Hwan is pretty good at it (mostly because of his aerial game). Hotaru too.

    Butt has a solid zoning game as well even though he's a more rush down like character.

    I would stick with Kain for the really have zoning. I feel he is best at it compared to everyone else. But then again, i do enjoy getting in peeps face with him too.
