    I'm chinese too. isn't it like this?

    xuan dou = battle or fight
    zhi wang = The king

    ??

    I'm serious by the way. I think it literally says king of fighters. I'll ask my girl when I get home, she can read and write. But I'm like 70 percent sure that the chinese name says King of the Fighters/battle.
    God damn!! At least change the title, guys! :rofl:
    They did. In mainland China, KoF is typically called Quán Dì (拳帝 Emperor of the Fist, son!) or even sometimes just KoF. Also less frequently Gedouzhiwang (格斗之王, look up your own tone marks :p). They have even another name for it in Taiwan, but who cares. :p

    I think I managed to download the game somehow, but I absolutely cannot get the thing to even run. I tried applocale, I tried compatibility mode, I don't get it. I'm not getting any errors or anything, but the game window never opens even though it's supposedly running.

    I don't suppose anyone has it and can help?

    Does anybody think this has a chance of coming in North America?
    Doubtful. Count how many Chinese games have had international releases.

    Considering Tencent's distribution system is based on a Chinese client, and the international version seems to have no intentions of updating to allow foreigners to download major game titles, it's just straight up not going to happen unless someone (like Steam) approaches them to do the distribution. And considering the similarities to KOF, I don't think any American distributor is going to touch them. Fighter's History is still in the back of everyone's mind.

    Agreed. Gotta admit that the art and design is really tasteful. It's funny how China has these skilled animators and illustrators, but no one creative enough to NOT plagiarize.
    And really, that's Chinese educational standards. They almost take dumps on creativity, and expect every to fit the norm. Before, seemed like China was very creative, but that's been hampered, I guess since the Communist takeover, for the common good, since not everyone is creative?

    Sucks, because you're right. This game is graphically stunning.

    Never got it to run at all, but as it turns out it was just the demo anyways. The company gives out CD keys and I thought I entered one that worked, but it didn't because before you can enter a CD key to get the game you have to set up an account on this Chinese blogging site related to QQ the instant messenger. Only problem is that to set up an account there, you need a Chinese cell phone to receive a text OR enter the information on your Chinese ID card.

    So basically that's where the problem lies in. If anyone can figure out a way to get around either of these required steps we might be able to get something going. I haven't been successful in faking the ID info, so I think the best and most likely to succeed method involves the cell phone option.

    Got it working thanks to Mr. Grimm! First impressions...it feels like KOF what a surprise. The game seems relatively simple, but fun. As far as combos go, there's some more advanced things but there's no coherent system really, everyone just kinda has their own shit that works combo-wise. Seems more about kof basics 98 style as everyone's seen already. Since it is still in beta some characters still seem incomplete or designed in weird ways. I know for a fact some characters don't have all their moves yet since there's screens of new moves.

    But anyway the most important thing is that the game uses some GGPO-ish rollback netcode. I played a China dude and there was no input delay, just lots of skipping around as you'd expect playing on GGPO with 300 ping. You can do 1v1 quick match, 3v3 quick match, training mode, or lobby room things. No offline mode, dunno if they are going to add it, since I can't read Chinese but there are 5/8 game mode options not added yet. I'll try to get a video up Sunday or something. Any requests of what people wanna see? Other than like just showing all the characters and moves and stuff.

    EDIT AGAIN: Apparently I brute forced the update. Now I just need to get ID info so I can log in finally.

    I apologize for the double post, but I also got it working and can also record video. If you have questions I can do that too. Cygnus was not kidding, the online for this game is like shockingly good. Way better than just about every console game out right now.



    Gotta love the originality.

    Okay, so since Tataki wanted a quick walkthrough, I'll give a VERY basic run through of what I think was everything I had to go through.

    First step is you need a QQ account from China so you can get a QQ ID number. There's a QQ International, but I don't know if you get the ID number there. You can sign up with US information, it shouldn't be a problem.
    http://zc.qq.com/en/index.html?from=pt


    The next step is to get a beta key. The devs post them every day at like 3 in the morning PST (yes, I had to do this), and you should really stay up to be the first to grab one, because they go quick. That is located here:
    http://t.qq.com/QQxuandou

    The first link of the post with keys on it is the activation link, the second link is bullshit so don't bother with it. You need to make sure you're logged into your QQ account, then activate the game. Then download the 6.2.1 version of the game, which is the box to the right on the activation page.

    After you download the game, install it, make sure you rename the install folder so it doesn't have Chinese characters in it just in case, this gave me problems. Run the game and it will update. It failed a lot when I did it, but I basically just kept retrying and retrying until I brute forced the patch to actually download.

    Once you get the patch updated, you click on the only server that is there and enter your log in info. It'll bring up this screen that wants Chinese ID card info. It didn't work for me. but there's a link that is on that screen that you should click, which will take you to a website where you log into your QQ account again, then enter the ID info there, and it will accept it and allow you to play the game. Go back to the game, close out the box asking for your ID info, rejoin the only server available, and log in with your QQ account.

    THEN the game should run. The big problem is finding ID info, but we might be able to make that work if none of the websites or programs care if we're all using the same info.

    3AM PST is actually a convenient time for me, so if you can get us past the ID part I have no problem fetching and activating codes for people at that time.

    On the other hand, seeing people in this thread mention horror stories and recommend to avoid installing any QQ stuff on your PC, I don't know if it's worth it. o_O

    I'll tell you straight up, QQ installs a bunch of shit you probably don't want. However, a couple things are pretty cool. There's this program that's like Pandora, except it's mostly Chinese music. They've got a bunch of preset radio stations and it's even got a built in karaoke feature. It's fun if anything else, you might not care for long, but it's not so bad. There's also this antivirus/registry optimizer/drive cleaner/fucking magic program that I am in love with. I can't read a fucking thing on it, but it fixed a bunch of errors I was getting and my computer has been running better than it has in some time.

    So basically at worst you put up with downloading shit you don't want. I can understand how it would be a deal breaker, but horror story, I'm not seeing it.

    lol I see you have embraced the QQ with all your heart and hard drive. Can I put all that shit on one folder and uninstall it all with no problems? No known spyware etc.?
    I'll think about it once the ID problem is cleared and more people will successfully get their accounts running.

    You can uninstall whatever you want, although it's kinda handy to keep the IM installed, because when you're logged into it all sites associated with QQ (including the ones for this game) will log you in with a single click, no extra navigation necessary. But you can get rid of everything once you get your QQ ID number and log in because none of it is necessary to run Flip Bucket.

    I can also guarantee there's no spyware. I assume the people who complain about QQ spyware are the same kind of people who call Google Chrome Botnet. I'm trying to help some more people in the KoF community get their accounts working, I'd be happy to help anyone else get their account setup.

    Ok then. Keep us updated on the ID thing because I have no idea how to get something like that.

    Well there's starting to be some problems in that regard. I used the same one as cygnus and I somehow got it working, but I'm trying to help Phoenixnl get in and he's using the same ID as Dandy_J, but it's not working. It's hard to tell if it's an issue with that ID already being used or if the ID has been blacklisted.

    EDIT: Apparently Phoenix had to get a new one. Again, not sure what the problem was, but either way it seems like getting more people in is going to be a slow process.

    Just streamed some training mode stuffs, here's the vid: http://www.twitch.tv/dandyj/b/320296372

    Nothing fancy, but maybe interesting to those that wanna see all the chars and moves and stuff. Also the motions seem harder on stick than when I was messing around on pad before. It's kind of got a kof98 thing on where you have to be really accurate. For example if you want qcf, if you do hcf it doesn't work. May have been the program not liking my stick or something maybe.

    So should you download the game first or create your info? Or does it even matter the order you do it in?
  • cygnuscygnus going up Joined: Posts: 977
    Doesn't matter, you can download the game without making an account.

    It probably won't ever leave China, but I wouldn't be so worried just yet. My computer is pretty crap as well, but it runs the game just fine. You should at least try it what with it being free and all, what have you got to lose?

    I think everybody needs to read that. It solves that ID issue.

    And there's a 2nd chance to get a beta code too. It happens at 11PM CST. I'm going to try to snag a code then.
    I read that while I was trying to get my account verified and it didn't really help me, hah.

    Also, keys are given out at noon and 6pm in China, convert accordingly.

    i'm also uploading T.K. (Tsukikage Aragi, aka Freeman) combos right now on youtube, after that shanwoo. will update.

    I don't know how you could stand playing that Freeman dude, he felt so unfinished to me and half his animations hurt to look at they're so choppy.

    T.K. combos. shanwoo is next.

    edit: yeah, he's kinda boring, but since i used to play freeman, i went with him first. shanwoo is a LOT more fun, and could be quite strong in the right hands.. then again, he clearly isn't finished, his j.D and standing D animations aren't implemented yet, for example.
