Maybe this is common knowledge (entirely possible because I’m such a noob), but the other night I was playing around with character colors on SSFIIX using button combinations, holding buttons, etc. and noticed something strange and repeatable. With at least 2 credits, if I pressed & held Start when selecting my character (Ken, in this case) and continued holding Start until the match started, in the upper right corner of the screen, instead of just saying “PRESS START”, it would alternate between “PRESS START” and some other string of kanji characters.
I don’t recall ever seeing this in normal play. Anyone ever tried/noticed this or better yet, know what that kanji string means?
