Arcade Shorthands
-----------------

I will use arcade shorthands in this FAQ to represent various commands/attacks
in the game, as they are much easier to write. So please read them over before
reading the move lists, or asking any question on the boards.

2 = Down
4 = Left
6 = Right
8 = Up

a = Main Weapon (Square)
b = Melee (Triangle)
c = Jump (X) 
cc = Boost Dash or "BD" (Double tap X)
d = Search (Circle)

CSa = Charge Shot (Main Weapon) (Hold Square)
CSb = Charge Shot (Melee) (Hold Triangle)
MCSa = Multi Charge Shot (Main Weapon)
MCSb = Multi Charge Shot (Melee)
ab = Sub Weapon (R1)
ac = Special Shooting (L2)
bc = Special Melee (R2)
abc = EX Burst (R3)

nb, b = Neutral melee (Triangle)
4/6b = Side melee (Left or Right + Triangle)
8b = Forward melee (Up + Triangle)
2b = Back melee (Down + Triangle)
cc8b = BD melee (X, X, Up + Triangle)

MA a = Main weapon in MA mode
MA b = Melee in MA mode (unless mentioned otherwise, MA b is the same as nb)

dir = Any direction


Examples:
---------

8ab = Up + Subweapon
4/6b = Left or Right melee

There are also a combination of input for combos, let me give an example:

nbbb

The above command indicates that you should execute Neutral Melee, then press
the melee button two more times to complete the combo.

bc(*)b

The above command indicates that you should exceute special melee, then mash
the b button. (Usually to increase the amount of damage dealt)

4/6bb-8b

The above command indicates that you should execute Side Melee, press the
melee button once, followed by a forward melee to complete the combo. This type
of combo (identified with the -) is called origination. You can find more
details on originations in the terms section.
