    He just updated part 2 (it's at the end of the video) to focus on Rolls.



    Thanks Dandy J.

    Hey J, what to do against people who spam grabs all day? My friend LOVES to do Shermies little throw where she does a backwards cart wheel. Thats all he likes to do, I can't attack him on wake up or even jump away, since it catches out of mid air.
    I will win! I won't stop until I get them!

    Work him! Yes! Him! Him right there! Work. Him!

    You know you can block that "grab" right? If you're having problems dealing with Shermie using it on wakeup, try to bait it with a hop and then roll forwards as she wakes up such that you're invincible during the attack. The move has a lot of recovery but it also puts a fair amount of distance between Shermie and the opponent if they block it.

    Just one little thing, grab/throws makes no difference am I correct? It doesn't matter what terminology I use, it's the same thing. Unless that Shermie move is an attack throw. I tried rolling, usually on recovery he does it again and again, etc.
    I will win! I won't stop until I get them!

    This project is finished. I won't be making another tutorial video until after KOFXII is released.

    I have a 'complete' version of the tutorial in 1 piece with spelling fixes, etc. If you have an old YouTube director account that allows for videos over 10:59 and don't mind uploading a 900mb file, please pm me.

    Like Remixi said, it's not actually a throw, you can block it. She will end up far away, but there's a lot of recovery so try to find something fast and long range to punish with your character. Actually you can probably run up and do close C > whatever if you react fast enough.

    Dandy, you're the best. it feels great being able to watch matches between good KoF players and actually be able to tell what they're doing and why. :P

    I tested it out in Regular 98, it hits even crouchers. Her qcb+P that is.

    Just use keepvid to download it from the internet.
    Has anyone thanked you today for not setting the whole world on fire?

    They should. I won't. I advocate setting the world on fire. But morons who actually like it, benefit from society, would do well to thank you and men like you for not visiting hell upon them.

    Cool. I've always respected the KoF series but never got into it because I was to addicted to Street Fighter to care about learning it seriously. KoF12 looks so awesome that I think I'm going to start there. Thanks for the vids man!

    say Dandy, how much time do you think you'll have to spend with XII before making guides for it?

    Dandy J thanks sooo much for this. This game is incredibly deep.

    Why isnt this game popular in USA? I have much more fun palying KoF than SF for some reason :p

    Looking forward to Part 3 and KoF XII XBox 360.

    I am as well. I'm practicing all that stuff and trying to get it down pat. Saved the vid in my favorites. I've earned a lot of respect for KOF in the past few days I've been playing it. I've played SNK many times before but never noticed all the cool stuff they had in it. I've been practicing breaking falls, blocking throws, block counter-attack, rolling tactics, etc.

    These videos are awesome, they helped me a lot in figuring out what was happening with this system. I even managed to drag a few friends away from SF4 and GG:AC to check it out.

    Dandy J thanks very much for this, still waiting for kofxii coverage from you, i'm sure it will rocks.
    your videos makes my eye opened, that kof is more complex and deeper than sf iv, imo anyway.

    Thanks a ton for these tutorials, they're really great. I had messed around in KOF some before, but never really attempted to learn too much about the game's fighting system. Me and a few friends have been playing 2k2UM recently, and the info contained in the videos has helped a lot.

    Thank you very much for the guide. After watching this a lot of the stuff I was getting hit by in the arcades that seemed random makes a lot more sense now. I'm gonna have to practice the hopping but I can see how it is the key to the higher level play of the game.
