Martial Masters anyone?

Wow I just heard about this game. Anybody else here know about it? Well actually, I downloaded a character for Mugen and I thought she played pretty well so I researched the game where she came from and then went to youtube to watch some videos. Pity I can only find 2 or 3 videos. Anyways, the game came out during 2001. It's got pretty nice graphics and animations...fighting system is quite unique too. The character names and stuff are hella cheesy though such as Master Huang, Drunken Master, Scorpion, etc.

    Arcade/mame only...too bad the cpu in mame has no real ai and manages to block EVERYTHING you do except for throws. I'd like to have Monkey Boy, Scorpion, Crane, Master Huang, and Red Snake for mugen, but so far the only character available is sorry-ass Reika.

    Yeah, I was just wondering if this game was played competitively. It looks rather unique. Anybody know where I can find some match vids? Yeah LOL I too have Reika....she's pretty fun to play as. I want to try out that Master Huang guy...reminds me of a more kickass Lee Rekka.

    I love Martial Masters, too bad nobody gave a damn about this game when it came out.

    The animations rivaled 3s, and the color was way better.

    I really loved that Metal Slug clone they did:tup:
  • Hotdawg_SKAHotdawg_SKA Joined: Posts: 429 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Any body know the tier list? Man I would sure like to see some of the other characters in action. With names like Drunken Master, Crane, Scorpion, etc. LOL it's sure to be exciting to see what styles they use. Where can I find more videos of this game? It doesn't even have to be elite gameplay....I just wanna see the game in action that's all.

    I remember seeing Martial Masters in the arcade...great animation for the time, although I never really got around to playing it.

    I remember that there was some secret character who was a girl that had her picture taken with you as one of her supers, although I have no idea how to select her.

    You need like mame32 version 90 or higher, and you need (I think) the stv Titan bios. i can't hook you up. Just google these things. You'll find them in under 20 minutes.

    Does it support that Metal Slug clone by the makers of Martial Masters?

    There's already two or three threads on here about this game. Try searching sometime.

    Last time I checked the game is emulated, but isn't working properly. There's many bugs such as combos, chains, and links not working properly, and the AI being virtually non-functional.

    They have this game at one of the local arcades but I havn't been there in over a year. Last time I played though, I went to get more quarters and this black guy started playing and so I put my quarter to start playing with him. I beat him and he pulled a knife on me and started telling me how he's going to kill me because I cheated. o_O

    I told him it was my first time playing and he yelled "BULLSHIT" and swung the knife, and I was like "THE MOVES ARE ABOVE THE CONTROLS!" and ran off.

    Scariest moment I've had in an arcade. o_o

    It's emulated by MAME now they got most of the glitches sorted out happened in MAME 107usomething, I would say it is 93% accurate it has few issues

    it has 3vs3 man I love 3v3 in a game

    so now ppl can play it decently in single player

    we should start up a petition to get this a console release. Not that they'll listen, but it's worth a try..

    Maybe for Dreamcast and 360?

    ive only played this game once. it was in a shitty arcade in a grodey mall/flea market type place. every machine there has something wrong with it, and martial masters had extremely tight sticks. as far as things that are usually wrong with their sticks, that was a blessing. i messed around for a few matches and it was pretty cool. i wish it would get some sort of console port because im too lazy to ride my bike 15 miles to get there, and ive only managed to play against a single person in anything there ever. he played me for one match in CVS, lost easily, and wouldnt rematch even when i offered to pay.
  • seantreeseantree Joined: Posts: 637
    be nice to see a console port then maybe this game would get some much needed love. I doubt we'll ever get one though

  • bloodriotbloodriot Crazed FG addict Joined: Posts: 259
    It works for me you must remeber that MAME and MAME 32 are different as far as versions go MAME32 isn't always updated as fast ..... I'm sure I did link combos but it may not be 100% the combo linking , moogly guy fixed it....

    plus you couldn't play the AI before because it was screwy before it just blocked everything and stood still, but now it's like a regular fighting game.....

    also if you use the cheats on MAME MAWS, you get 2 extra characters true lotus master and nomario's sister



    I'm using MAME 116u something.....IIRC, plus bonus news two new fighters in the latest MAME release bloodwarrior kinda looks crappy and Asura blade part 2, I just can't find a MAME32 version guess I'll have to compile MAME 112u2 I guess :(

    not that I know of I'm sure the chineese must have hooked themselves up, just start chatting in kali I'm sure a few of them will know how to compile it into MAME or at least nebula or something...

    Ah I played asura blade 2 yesterday not as good as martial masters but it's alright

    I'm playing it on Nebula, and for some reason the music is messed up. Wtf? What's up?
  • Atb_555Atb_555 www.neoempire.com Joined: Posts: 1,536
    I've tried it on Nebula it actually runs smooth more so than on the new Mame32. But yeah the same problems still persist, ie: graphics are all messed and music is too. However you can do combos and links properly but its damn hard on a keyboard.

    Anyone know how to set Nebula up with a SmartJoy convertor?

    I played this game at the first moment i read that i was emulated on Nebula some months ago.

    This game is really good, i feel that the game is balanced and the animation is smooth, as i understand, this is the fourth fighting game of IGS (the last is Spectral vs Generation, a game that everybody sure knows) and it feels too SNKism but thats not too strange because PolyGame Master is the Neo-Geo of Taiwan.

    Its really bad that this game never got a decent release outside the US (and even Japan, as i know) because it deserves a look.
